This is a Kantai Collection related post, and also one that made me go ‘URK’ in terms of cost and whatnot. This isn’t some unboxing video or what have you, just some random normie (really, normie? -muse) posting about a very expensive figure.
It took me a long time to get Graf Zeppelin in KanColle, and it has been a source of anguish for me, as if the character was testing me after my initial distaste to Humikane Shimada’s design. Over time she grew on me and so I was endlessly frustrated when I didn’t obtain Graf when she became available.
Anyways, the figure is in 1:7 scale and made by Funny Knights. I had also gotten the Zuikaku Kai Ni figure from them, and honestly prefer the Kai Ni over the Kai Ni A colour scheme.
Anyways, some pictures.
So, two years ago, what I consider my favorite scene in GATE happened. Well, it happened sometime in January, but still.
I have not been active in blogging the past few months. Personal malaise and professional obligations had me occupied. I have three planned posts for the next two weeks, much less than some who achieve the same three posts in as little as one day. It is unrefined, barely filtered thoughts I have. But apart from that, this blog will continue, in low postage and in rambling spurts, until I decide it’s not viable anymore.
Happy Bloggoversary for me.
And thus ends what I deem a rather good reboot/re-imaginging of a series that I’ve viewed over the years through rose-tinted glasses. I hope everyone had some fun with it, though I know for some it wasn’t their cup of tea in comparison to what other offerings we had this season.
We are at the penultimate episode of the series, and to me the one I’ve been looking forward to most, even if it hasn’t changed at the slightest. Well, in terms of story, animation quality went up several notches and a little bit more implied background was added. Imgur is also being stupid, so no pictures for now. Will add an edit once the album is loaded.
I wasn’t able to pump out a post during Anime USA for this episode, but I’ll just add my thoughts. Nothing amazing or new.
A quick little thing. I finished Kantai Collection’s Fall 2017 event. An event that apparently had 60% completion rate for an event of it’s size. And most of those completing it were doing so in ‘Easy’. Not ‘Medium/Normal’ or ‘Hard’. So it is with some delight I can say I completed all four maps of the rather horribly designed event in ‘Normal/Medium’. I got myself a new duck, sub, and two coastal defense ships.
I also wrote something for it, because I couldn’t help but write a little in-headcanon/universe piece.
As for the weekend? I will be going to what seems to be my -last- anime convention for the time being. My seniority at my workplace is high, but not high enough to obtain the dates needed for Anime Expo or Katsucon next year. That and I am saving my vacation hours to go back to the Philippines and Japan next Fall. I am still mulling over wanting to do blog posts, or I’ll just post a gallery of pictures and my overall impressions. With the current structural and operation upheavals at work, I honestly want to relax this weekend and not do anything much.
Anyways, I hope those who follow my blog have a good afternoon, I’m off to do post-event prep and getting my girls back to resource and training runs. And probably pack my bags tonight.
Yet another quick thought due to the multi-country episode. Just something quick per country. Next episode should be back to normal. Should, not counting on it because I will be attending my last Anime USA for the foreseeable future. Gotta love having crap seniority for vacation. /sarc
Just when we thought we have left Shizu, Riku, and Ti behind on that cliff-side camp, we get a whole episode featuring their adventures and why some people just continue to travel. I’m skipping screenshots minus a few for this one. A bit busy now that the holiday season has arrived.
What was it? The saying goes to ‘be weary of an old man in a profession where men die young’. I can only imagine this applies much to this episode’s focus character, Kino’s teacher, Shishou, and her apprentice/traveling companion. Once again, a quick thought. Next week should return to me writing an episode summary as well.
Sleep doesn’t sound too bad either. Art by lilywhite lilyblack on pixiv.
Will be slow in releasing Kino no Tabi (2017) episode 7. Still kinda listing from the food and whatnot from younger sister’s wedding. I know it’s just another excuse but right now suffering through a headache.
