Happy New Year!

For residents on GMT at least ^^;; Time flying for you? Definitely has been for me – especially on my otaku side, getting back into anime and starting up a figure collection.
Ah yes, and before I get into my random ramblings, the contest is now closed! Thanks to everyone who participated, and in general, tons of thanks to everyone who’s stopped by, regular readers, commenters, lurkers and all ^_^ Also a big thanks to Danny Choo and his community, without whom none of this insanity would have happened ^^; With new years eve still upon me give me a day or two to get the results out ^^;
Just thought I’d go through some of the highlights of the year for me, woulda love to hear yours in case I missed out on any epicness ^_^
I have really broad tastes, generally never really hate anything and if I had to group into ‘like’ and ‘dislike’ categories, almost everything would end up in ‘like’. ^^; That said, some of the shows that stood out for me:
Spice and Wolf
and some of the recent shows I’m trying to keep up with but am still way behind:
akane-iro ni somaru saka
to aru majyutsu no index
Have been falling further and further behind, but some things I’ve really been enjoying:
kimikisu various heroines
mangaka-san to ashisutantosan to
I am even further behind in this area, so it’s more of… what did I actually get around to reading ^^; I think I finished the 2nd haruhi novel earlier in the year… almost done with kanokon 1… started spice and wolf 1… ahhhh no progress ;_;
Fortune Arterial was pretty good, definitely enjoyed that one. Tsuyokiss was released a while back, so not really a 2008 thing except for the fact that I finished it this year.
Ah well, started collecting this year, and it’s scary how far things have come. From nendoroid nagato to daiki kougyou’s kanu, according to my tsukiboard I have amassed 61 figures (excluding nendoroid puchis).
My favorite would probably have to be… hmmm… gads a tough decision. Probably a tie between alter hayate and daiki kougyou kanu right now … err and alter exelica. So many good releases, and my room has definitely been transformed with the influx of pvc. I even got another detolf yesterday, as figures continue to run my life ^^;
Economy’s been pretty rough and it’s probably still a ways from recovering, but here’s to the new year, regardless of what she brings!
Happy New Year!
