Madoka Magica AMV

It's been quite a while since I last posted, so I apologize for that. I've been busy with school and work, which didn't leave me enough time to spend blogging. The other day, I decided to make an amv (anime music video) based off the awesome anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica. It's a really good anime; I will be reviewing it as soon as I have the opportunity. Anyway, this is actually my second amv. The first was a Black Rock Shooter amv I made a year ago, but it wasn't all that good, so I never really told anyone about it. The artist is Ellie Goulding and the song is "Human". 

Enjoy! ^-^

My 3rd Nendoroid

Thanks to a sale on Hobby Search, I managed to get my third Nendoroid, Takane Manaka, for only $20! Although she's a bit simple compared to my other Nendoroids, she's still utterly adorable <3 It took her a while to come in due to shipping her as a SAL package (around 3 weeks). But at least it saved me a few dollars (I hate that EMS shipping can cost over $20 T.T) On a good note, I filed for taxes and will be getting a nice amount allowing me to buy more wonderful figures! I have a few in mind that I want to buy (some of you may already know which ones after looking at my Christmas wishlist ^^;). Anyway, here are a few quick shots I took of her <3

Vindictus: A Closer Look

Customizing my character in the "Avatar Shop"
First let me start off this post by wishing everyone a happy new year! I know I'm a few day's late but it's been crazy for me these past few days and I'll spare you the boring details. For now, I'd like to talk about an MMO I've recently started playing called Vindictus. I haven't made any video game relate posts so I thought this would be a good start.

Fun in the Snow~

A few days ago, a blizzard hit NYC and completely covered it in huge piles of snow. I decided to take advantage and snap a few shots of my two girls (Azusa and Miku). Well, that failed horribly -_-; I've walked in blizzards before but this one was too intense! I could barely keep any of my Nendoroids standing and my fingers were frozen, making it difficult to pose them. Plus, to get good shots, I had to literally lay on the snow with my camera to snap a photo at their level. My whole body went numb @_@

Merry Christmas!!!

Just wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and I hope that you all enjoy yourselves on this very special day! I hope everyone got what they wanted and if not...well there's always next year! (I'm just waiting to file my taxes, that's when x-mas really begins for me ^_^) Have fun and stay safe!!

My Room

Just entered Danny Choo's giveaway at I'm pretty embarrassed after looking at other people's awesome rooms filled with all those figures, manga/anime collections, video games and posters while mines is so bare ^-^; But my collection is still growing and I will admit; I love my cozy room. Decided to post it up on my own blog and maybe as I get more merchandise I can take more pictures in the future and compare them. For all those who entered, good luck!

Christmas Wishlist: Figures

Christmas is approaching fast and I just realized something: I'm completely broke (~_~); Due to Black Friday sales, I waisted all my money on building a new PC, so I have no money left for goodies, presents for family members, and probably even this month's rent...*sniff* So hence the word "wish" in wishlist. I only wish I could afford to buy any of these upcoming figures. I laugh at how I could spend browsing Hobby Search for hours, listing my favorite figurines I'd like to own one day. I thought I'd share with you which ones they are.

Which figures are on your Christmas wishlist?

Meeting the Angry Video Game Nerd

Finally, a video game related post (well, not really). Some people may know him as the Angry Video Game Nerd or AVGN. I call him by his real name, James Rolfe, who is the creator of the AVGN and several other hilarious videos. Well, lucky for me, I live in NYC right next to our neighbor New Jersey, and James just happened to be stopping by. Wouldn't of missed this opportunity for the world!

K-ON! English Voice Actress

Upon looking up K-ON! on, I was pleasantly surprised to find the names of the English voice actresses chosen to do the voices of the Mio, Yui, Mugi and Ritsu. This is actually old news, but I felt like blogging about it because I'm very excited about the upcoming English dubbing.

My Top 10 Favorite Anime

The question "What are your favorite anime series?" always rises when going to conventions and being surrounded by otakus. Strangely enough, I actually have a hard time answering that one. I've watched so many that I've never put them in any particular order or preference. There were just the ones I liked and ones I never found favorable. Still, I think there is always at least one anime you like over others, and it shows when you are either buying merchandise or speaking to a fellow anime enthusiast.

Happy Thanksgiving!

They're not eating turkey, are they? ^^;;

I know it's a little late (almost midnight over at my side of the world) but I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone on behalf of Atashi no Burogu! Whether your spending time with the family eating turkey, or watching anime all day, I hope you have a wonderful time XD 

I'm also keeping a very close eye on Black Friday sales because I'm planning on upgrading to a PC (the crappy Dell laptop I'm on sucks!). is an excellent website that keeps an eye on great deals! Happy shopping!

[Taken by mishumishi. There's so many of them!]

What are Nendoroids? I had no clue at first what they were neither until I started noticing them more and more in toy/comic book shops such as Forbidden Planet and Elizabeth Center Mall in Chinatown. They also started popping up through the internet and I finally got a hold of one on my birthday as a present; it was Misa from Death Note. That's when I got hooked...

First post!


Yes, I've done it. I've created a blog. Just like every other hopeless otaku out there, I've created a blog to ramble on about my passion for Japanese culture; anime, manga, video games, cosplay, figurines, food, etc. Sad, huh?
