Well, there’s progress with the renovation.

If everything goes alright, I should be able to begin prepping for another season of The Legend of Araragi-kun or general figure comics somewhere in April.

Just finished painting the walls and we can start moving stuff this weekend.
Once the furniture’s been moved, shelf-sizes can be calculated.
So many boxes to unbox when the time comes..

As for Anivoy T2.. Let’s say I’m struggling with nicknames. You’ll understand when it’s uploaded.
Requiem still whenever, figuring out if I want to redesign some stuff.
Also have an icebreaker in mind.

A GW2 guildie gifted me the Tomb Raider reboot, which is an enjoyable playthrough.
My only TR experiences are with 2 and 3 from the originals, and I never get far in those. Really not far. Like, Venice. I think I spend more time messing around in the Croft Mansion, thinking some object was a secret entrance.

Damn, do the developers love having Lara fall off of high places.

After Skyrim, I also picked up Oblivion. Guess I’ll be playing in reverse order!
The EU (Or Dutch) edition of the Skyrim Legendary Edition box was.. Disappointing.
No map of Skyrim. No sticker. Not even a manual. Just a paper with a steam code and the install cd.

And now I find out the 5th Anniversary edition of Oblivion didn’t come with any physical extras either here.
Everything was put on a dvd. I have to fucking print my own poster.
Thanks, Zenimax Europe. Fucking cheapskates.

Watch the same shit happen when I eventually get Morrowind.

I’ve been ordering lightnovels lately. My first batch arrived in perfect condition, my 2nd batch.. Not so much.

Picture taken from Futaba, I think.

On a financial level (and sometimes the fandom too, but that’s another story).
Collecting Japanese figures has gotten pretty expensive since I started ~10 years ago.
Now I’ll admit I can be quite stingy with money/be a cheapskate, but the examples below show that the prices are just getting silly in comparison to what they used to be and what you got for it.
So let’s go back a little, when yen prices were lower and the exchange rate was €1 = ¥170
