Hello everyone! It’s a lot after August, but all of my August loot is finally here! \o/

As usual, my loot is mostly, if not entirely sports anime so if that doesn’t interest you it’s time to hit that return button haha.

I have spent way too much in the month of August, more than I really should’ve, but I was hoping that my September would be lighter. (That is not the case but this is not a loot post about September.)

My first and package was a pretty big one through my proxy. I actually ended up placing several separate orders on Surugaya with White Rabbit Express this month because I don’t plan well. #RIPI’ll learn eventually.

I had had my eye on the Apricot Blossom scale of Miyuki from Daiya no Ace when it was listed on Mandarake, but the day that I went to go buy it, it had sold out. :C In the end, I saw it on Surugaya and bought it immediately. He arrived with his head rolling around in the box so there was a brief moment of panic since I did read that this figure did have some QC issues but mine was okay and Miyuki’s head was attached without any issues.

I grabbed some other Daiya stuff from Surugaya in the same order because they had a sale going on and these were at a really good price. I didn’t unbox these since they’re sealed in their original packaging and I don’t have any good place to display them so I might as well keep them sealed until I do.

These are super cute, but also going back into the storage bin right after this post because of space issues ahh.

I also managed to find the Miyuki palmate for a good price as well as the Sawamura and Furuya Breaktime figures. The Miyuki Breaktime figure though, I thought I was getting him as a set with Kuramochi for 4000 jpy, but turns out, it was just Miyuki. #rip It’s(slightly) okay though, because Miyuki was the one I wanted in the end but I don’t think I would’ve paid 4000jpy for just Miyuki if I had known.

Here is a picture of the breaktime figures sitting on my bookshelf. They're in my detolf now and they fit perfectly on the spice rack I have in there!

I also picked up 4 CDs during the sale for pretty cheap prices. I love Yukimura’s album so I’m happy to finally have a physical copy of it in my hands. I also wanted the Daiya no Ace Best of Rivals collection specifically for one character song, Billion Swings, which makes me thirst for Yuuki even though I normally wouldn’t. Idk man

And it wouldn’t be a package without some Tenipuri. I’m happy I managed to grab this acrylic stand of Tezuka from Surugaya although it is a lot smaller than I imagined. I also preordered the Pita! Southpaw keychain through White Rabbit Express as well as the Animate exclusive acrylic stands, which I’m happy to say, are as big as I imagined they be.

Next I (re)discovered the magic of Yahoo auctions and kind of went a little crazy. It didn’t help that I used Buyee either, because their shipping prices are atrocious and consolidating meant that they literally put all the packages into one bigger box and added the weight of everything together without reweighing or anything. But I’ve learned my very expensive lesson. The first lot I won was a Seigaku specific lot which had a lot of Tezuka goods in it. Since I was mainly looking at it from my phone, I was really sure what I was bidding for in the lot, but I’m so glad I followed my gut instinct and won this auction! When I screenshotted the photo of the goods and zoomed in on photoshop, I realized that it actually included 3 of the gashapon buttons that just came out and I had been in a mad hunt for them! (And this was AFTER I paid more than I wanted on the sane button on Otamart with my proxy but that will be in a few paragraphs;; ) I don’t have super good pictures of the loot since there’s so much, but I’m very very happy with my purchase. I ended up shipping this out by itself because I couldn’t wait, but the rest of my stuff from Buyee was shipped together. This was still hella expensive since it was heavy, but not so heavy that I should’ve paid what Buyee charged me. They gave me a price and then the total came out to be 2000jpy more than what they told me it would be, but I didn’t want to fight them on it since I knew I wasn’t going to buy from them again after I shipped my other things out.

The second box from Buyee includes the second lot I won, I only bid on it for 2 specific things. The big flower crown notebook and the cushion. Afterwards, I realized that it had the smaller notebook as well!This lot included a Tenipuri product that I’ve never seen before, which was the playbutton. I’m really happy about this lot too. I only paid around 1600jpy for the entire lot, which was super lucky for me, I think, since I’ve bid on other lots since and nothing has been as cheap as that. uvu;; But shipping this lot more than killed me so I guess it all balances out.

I also finally managed to find the acrylic stand of Tezuka from the Garden Romance set sold at Jump Festa. I bought the Ryoma and Syusuke figures together as a set for around 2000jpy so I’m happy about that as well. They’ll be joining Tezuka eventually when I either cave and display them not in my detolf or when I cave and buy a second detolf.

My Toreba order was also there for pickup and I'm pretty lit that I was able to get the Akira towel. The Kitsune Kise is also really really cute.

The August order from Amiami also came in the same day and I think I’ve been so traumatized by the shipping prices from Buyee that I was relieved to only pay 3700jpy for the EMS shipping this time. I’m still on the fence about keeping Yuri even though he is a very beautiful figure. For now he will stay unopened in his box while I make my decision. Also a bunch of Tenipuri stuff like badges, a set of clearfiles, and an acrylic keychain. There is a stray Kenma pinched strap from Haikyuu!! in my order as well.

*Badges not pictured because I took apart the box to make room in my bins

The Nitotan straps I preordered with GoodsRepublic a few months ago came in as well. I picked them up on a Friday and on my drive down to my friends’ apartment, I managed to rip the box open with just one hand because I was pretty excited about it. I think the animate exclusive postcards have me more excited than the straps do tbh;; I’m also still unclear if that many postcards were supposed to come with my order or if GoodsRepublic did me a solid and included all those since I got the whole set and then a double of Tezuka. Either way, I’m extremely happy with this <3

My second package from White Rabbit Express came a few days later and honestly one of my highly anticipated orders. I have been searching for the sakura bromide of Tezuka for a while since my 12 year old broke bitchass couldn’t afford it and also had no way of utilizing my resources to buy it when it was released. I finally found it for a decent price on Surugaya and screamed inwardly until White Rabbit Express was able to buy it. They also managed to snag the cute acrylic keychains off the website for the movie for me. They originally emailed me to tell me that the keychains were sold out which was heartbreaking but when I responded to their email to say I wanted the other keychains anyways, the keychains came back in stock! <3 I probably talk about my proxy a lot but it’s because I’m extremely satisfied with using White Rabbit Express as a proxy even though their prices are a little bit higher. They’ve never let me down so far and their shipping prices are fair!

That weekend, I visited my friend and I dragged her to Kinokuniya with me. The one I went to in San Francisco had some Tenipuri Apartment charms and I wanted to check if the one near me had it as well. Not only did they not have it, but the young guy working there insisted that Tenipuri had long been over and they weren’t making any products of it anymore. Homie wouldn’t believe me when I told him that there’s a sequel. But whatever, I ended up buying two blind packs of the Daiya no Ace badges because they were 50% off.

During August I also ordered the September issue of Animedia as well as the CD of Yukimura’s Happy Summer Valentine(not pictured). They finally came to me in mid September because I shipped them through SAL. I only bought the Animedia for the poster of Tezuka but the Free! clearfile is awesome as well. I also really love the soft art for the Digimon poster and Kurama/Youko is bae.

The last and final order that arrived for August was the one the order that made me the most nervous, because it was just stuck in limbo for so long. I ordered it through Mandarake and had it shipped registered SAL. It was stuck at “dispatch from outward office of exchange” for a full month before finally arriving at the ICS in New York in September. The other SAL order I made 2 weeks after this got here before this even arrived in the US, which is why I was getting nervous about it. After arriving in the US, it had no other updates until 8 days later when it was finally at my local post office for delivery. I’m glad nothing was lost because in it were Tezuka’s glasses and Daisuke Higuchi’s art book Double Wind. I’ve been a long time fan of Whistle! and Daisuke Higuchi’s unique art style. The artbook also included pictures from her other works, but I mainly wanted it for Whistle!

Andd if you listen closely, you can hear the sound of my wallet begging for mercy. That's all for my loot this month and I hope you enjoyed all these nice sports bois!

Tyy <3 Some Ryoma items are definitely waiting for you ;)

Silly_rabbit2 år sedan#40586626Its funny how the last loot post i commented was about my favorite Spokon anime being Haikyuu! And now it appears that you got a lot of awesome things from my 2nd place fave sports anime being Daiya no Ace ahhh! Fantastic you've got the suwarasetai set that im searching for (the one that includes Raichi, Tõjo & Kanemaru) and a lot of other nices figures from the series (the ochatomo set is pretty nice even though im missing Sawamura & Chris from it) im struggling with space too and sadly i cant display a "good's summary" of Tõjo & Kanemaru/ Raichi & Sanada ive bought at Mandarake, anyways enjoy your monthly treasure!!

Surugaya is a godsend for all of these things! The only sad part is that you either need to buy from them using a proxy or a forwarding service ;u; They still have the Ochatomo in stock for:
Sawamura - www.suruga-ya.j... 600jpy
Chris - www.suruga-ya.j... 200jpy
if you were interested in buying them from there! (And they have the whole set still for like 3000jpy too lol www.suruga-ya.j... )

I'm not sure who you're missing from the suwarasetai set but you might be able to find them on Surugaya too!

I love Haikyuu!! too, but a lot of their merch isn't as cute to me ;v; I'm a little sad I missed out on the Nitotan plushie of Sugawara bc that's really the only thing I want besides acrylic stands ahh. Nice to see another person who also likes sports anime <3 Thanks for commenting!
