色々 ~ Ver. ε

Posted by meronpan on September 3, 2009


Dunno how many random posts covering a variety of topics I’ve done, so this one has been labeled version epsilon for no reason.  Quick Japanese vocab lesson: 色々==いろいろ==iroiro == various.  As a na-adjective you’d say iroirona [something] to say “various [something]”.  In casual speech this is often contracted to 色んな==いろんな==ironna.

Anyhow, today it’s figures, anime, and touhou again.

Pics Around the House

Posted by meronpan on August 31, 2009

Well, not my house, but my parents’, where I was visiting this weekend.  Ended up playing more touhou (eosd, pcb & in), reading 我が家のお稲荷さま (wagaya no oinarisama), and getting some use out of my camera ^^  Just random shots with my macro lens so no akiba-kei content today.  Cats included for the lulz thou


A good reminder that I’m a total beginner, especially when not shooting figures ^^;  Dealing with widely varying lighting conditions, looking for interesting shots … have a lot to learn orz

Let’s see, about 10 days since my last post? In those 10 days, 3 were spent in Vegas, 2 in Phoenix… still very very tired ^^; May be heading out on another business trip soon but hopefully I’ll at least get in a weekend before that happens ^^;;

‘cuz of all that I haven’t gotten around to too much… though I did play a buncha touhou :P Also started translating some stuff on the wiki… the Highly Responsive to Prayers (touhou 1) manual has been meronpanized.

I’m sure many of you are tired of touhou… so I’ve got a little figure stuff to post on!  But just a preview, reviews to come in future posts :P

I’m Easily Distracted

Posted by meronpan on July 23, 2009

Lots I want to post about but got a new phone recently so I haven’t been so diligent in writing ’em up ^^;


Pretty big upgrade for me because I finally evolved out of the cell phone stone age – my previous phone was monochrome and resolution was probably like 50×20.  So yeah, no pictures, nothing but pc-speaker-like-sounds… only the bare bones.

Room Pics Again

Posted by meronpan on July 20, 2009

(Update: figure.fmで翻訳して見ました。どうぞ見て下さい。) dannychoo readers are probably well aware of the otacool book/contest that’s currently open for submissions.  Yet again danny gives me a good excuse to clean up and take a panorama.


Sorry for the tiny version ^^;  Click for a 2.7 MB 7200×1613 version.  All of the following pics are also viewable at figure.fm (where you can view the pics at a high resolution in the post).

How to Nico Nico

Posted by meronpan on June 30, 2009

I’m pretty sure there are other niconico sign up tutorials out there but I figure it can’t hurt adding another to the mix.  Come one, come all, discover the otaku joys of nico nico douga!


Click for the artist's blog post

You can see a video of the drawing of the awesome pic above here (timed awesomely with the niconico rainbow medley I posted about earlier).  So let’s get on with the tutorial so that you can follow that link!

Just another niconico public service announcement to spread some otaku love.  I would’ve put a translation in the title but I have a small paragraph worth of explanation about it ^^;  Before that, I should mention I’ll be talking about the latest niconico music medley, 七色のニコニコ動画を元の曲で再現してみたver.D!

If you have a niconico account, can understand japanese, and somehow haven’t seen it yet, I recommend watching it on niconico for the usual comment insanity.  I dunno but I totally love the niconico comment system.  Really changes the experience… rather than inane youtube stuff it’s more of a stream of the otaku conscious… perhaps tapping into the same appeal of videos of people’s reactions to other videos, you get the same sort of thing in comment form at niconico.  Definitely contributes to a community feeling when  you’re watching.  Very amusing, but you have to be able to read fast ^^;

買っちゃった ~ I Bought It

Posted by meronpan on June 20, 2009

If you were wondering what I meant when I twittered, 「買っちゃった」 this is it ^^


Thanks to everyone who provided feedback on my previous post. Please don’t be offended if I didn’t follow your advice ^^;;

Hope I’m handling everything correctly and putting things on right… was too excited to spend an hour reading the insanely long manual ^^;;

A big thank you to everyone!  WAWAWA忘れ物 is now… well, I guess technically WAWAWA忘れ物 was born late January so it’s only 5 months old :P *ahem* Let’s overlook the name change… one year of blogging, yay! As you’ve no doubt figured out, I’m just gonna talk a bit about some stats, milestones, site trivia and the like. If that’s not your cup of tea, just let me say thanks again for stopping by and see ya next time m(_ _)m
