Hi, there! This is Tomeko.
Some of the HOBBY SEARCH staff are coughing right and left these days, and, although I have tested negative on Swine Flu, I’m still having to struggle with coughing spells. I don’t know what this is.
Now, something I had wanted so badly was released last month. I wanted to buy it on the spot but I had to postpone it for financial reasons.
And, just when my payday has finally arrived and I am ready to buy the item, it is... GONE!!
And which one am I talking about?
This one. S.H. Figuarts Kyouka Gaikokkaku Zero
Yes, the exoskeleton “Zero” from the Takayuki Yamaguchi’s masterpiece “Apocalypse Zero.” This action manga produced by the macho manga artist is a bit on the “sticky” side, not exactly the lighthearted type most of our customers might be accustomed to, but it is nonetheless a very very exciting piece of work. Please give it a read if it is available at your local bookstores.
No other figure can sit so solemn, I think.
A famous line from the manga, “Losing is not a shame, but refusing to fight is!” is my favorite one. My postponing buying the item and failing to get it in the end is just as great a shame.
The moral of this blog: Put it in the cart while you have the chance.
