Another recent arrival post ^^;
Quick Japanese tidbit: This post is titled ‘mokkai’ which is I believe is slang for ‘mou ikkai’ (if not directly derived, they do happen to have the same meaning ^^;). Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase, ‘mou ichido’ (once more, again)? ‘ichido’ and ‘ikkai’ have roughly the same meaning, ‘one time’, so yeap, ‘mou ikkai’ also means ‘once more’ or ‘one more time’. Yotsuba-chan uses this phrase in volume 3, right before the fireworks display when Jumbo is mad Asagi wasn’t coming along.
…errr sorry ’bout that, got carried away ^^;
Word of warning about the above pic… It may be my terrible luck with figmas… but I ended up breaking one of Saber’s hands posing her with graf eisen ;_; It fits perfectly in her hands but is so heavy, I think I wasn’t supporting it enough and *snap* orz Luckily the break off left a easily grippable part of the joint so I was able to remove the broken piece and can still use other hands (unlike my fate).
Anyhow, my Japanese class final is tomorrow so I really need to get back to studying.
p.s. As you may have noticed from other reviews, the base is absurdly large! whyyyyyy ^^;;
