A few weekends ago, I checked out the new animate store in Naha. With floorspace about double the size of my apartment, it's nothing compared to the huge stores in Tokyo. It doesn't have a large enough range of character goods, and the bus fare into town and back means that Yahoo Auctions is sometimes a much better bargain. However, there is an even better option - ordering directly from the online store, and paying at a local convenience store. (The first item thus ordered should be arriving anytime soon. (^_^) )
In about a month's time, I will once again be updating my gallery, with my new (second-hand) scanner. But as a preview, here are a few of the portraits I have obtained over the last 8 months or so.
Replacing the crappy scans I made last year will have to wait, however, until I return to Perth, whenever that may be.
