Dawn comes quieter than a sleeper’s breaths
Your dream now dashes through the forest
If you’ve lost your motion of waking up and searching for a light
I’ll find it for you
It’s hiding in the future of yours and mine

I saw this Spice and Wolf Holo puppet pop up for preorder a few months ago. Yes, you can move the tail. Yes, you can stick your hand up its dress and put on your own furry puppet show. Nevertheless, not sure if want. The face scares me. The fact that it comes with detachable/interchangeable eye pieces doesn’t help. The creepiness fades a little after staring at the product images for a while, but otherwise the only saving grace puppet Holo has is the potential that a Lawrence puppet may be released in the future.

The wind is scented, the birds chirp, clouds drift and turn colorful
Even the scenery that I should be familiar with seems like a totally different thing
I see your face from the side, deep in thought, so I intentionally bump into your shoulders
Because then, you turn a tender gaze toward me
Max Factory 1/8 Suzumiya Haruhi (Extravaganza ver.)
Max Factory 1/8 Nagato Yuki (Extravaganza ver.)
Max Factory 1/8 Asahina Mikuru (Extravaganza ver.)
- At the recent Miyazawa Models Expo 2008 Fall, Max Factory unveiled posters of 1/8 scale figurines featuring Haruhi, Yuki, and Mikuru from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya in their Extravaganza attire. The Haruhi figurine will be the first to be released, currently scheduled for March 2009 and at 7,800 yen. Preorder for it will open on November 21st, JP time. It stands approximately 210mm tall. The Yuki figurine will be released in April 2009 and the Mikuru figurine will be released in May 2009; both are about 200mm tall and the price tags for these two are still undetermined.
- Wow, wow wow wow. That is amazing. The figurines look stunning in the poster. I am right to have passed on the Alter Haruhi, because the new Max Factory Haruhi looks incredible. I hope all three figurines will look as good in their mass-production incarnation without the photoshop. As an afterthought, I’d still say the face on the Alter Haruhi is better, but this MF Haruhi trumps it in nearly every other department.
Three karaokes to anime songs done by me, dating from January 2008 through yesterday. I’ve been doing a lot of short versions lately since it’s easier to memorize and sing half of a song than to do for a full version. I also posted the karaoke videos to Nico Nico Douga, where people have commented that they sound like Hirano Aya, Shimotsuki Haruka, and/or Hatsune Miku. XD It’s pretty hilarious that people also remarked, “I’m Japanese and I can’t sing the song”.

furry Horo goodness.
This is about as far as I got when I stopped, looked at what I doodled, and wondered about just what the heck I was doing. Oh god, am I going into furry? Furry is like, the gateway fetish to things much, much worse, like vore…
I…I think I’ll make just a single print of this for Anime Boston’s Artists’ Alley and hope that either someone who recognizes Spice and Wolf or a furrycon would buy it.

O seven apples on a witch’s tree
With seven seeds to plant inside of me
In springtime I grew a magic song
Then skipping along, oh I sang the song to everyone

Within the journey
Where I grew lost all alone
Only my heart wandered and stood still
But now I can
Walk very far
That’s right, after I met you
On this road
