Games, Anime, and a Manga Cookbook

I went to Best Buy and Books A Million yesterday to pick up a few items. The new issue of Negima! (Vol 23) came out, so I picked that up as well as a book I ordered a couple weeks ago, The Manga Cookbook
. I haven't had a chance to really look over the cookbook, but it has recipes ranging from simple how to make a slice of apple look like a rabbit to stuff like okonomiyaki.


Over at Best Buy I picked up the new Metroid Prime Trilogy, and I had a coupon for a free 10.00 gift card when purchasing the game. Though the main reason I went to Best Buy was to pick up Volume 1 of Genshiken 2, which is one of my favorite anime and manga series.


I love the opening song of the series.

Tamaki Kosaka Figure

Just got in this new figure of Tamaki Kosaka from To Heart 2. She came with Dengeki G's Festival Deluxe Vol 4 which is still available at J-list.


More pictures after the jump...

The swimsuit can be completely removed allowing you display her completely in the nude.

All you have to do is take off her head and then slip the suit off her.

Both legs have these really noticeable seam lines since her lower legs are detachable. But you can really only see them when viewing from this angle. I doubt many people will display her at this angle, so they aren't a huge issue. There is however a seam on her right arm at the elbow that can't be covered up.

This is my first Tamaki figure, but probably won't be my last. There are at least 2 or 3 other figures of her that I really want to get.

You can see pictures of her cast off at or my Flickr account.

My First HDTV

Went and bought my very first HDTV Friday at Best Buy. It's an Insignia 32" 1080p which is Best Buy's in house brand. It cost 499.99, but they put it on sale Sunday for 469.99. Don't you hate when that happens? Luckily they offer a price guarantee that if you find the product cheaper somewhere else, or in their store during the return/exchange period they will refund the difference to you. I know the pictures are kind of dark, but that was the best I could do and have the screen show up clear.

I used the $30.00 refund to purchase a cable to hook my PC up to the TV. Now I can surf in High-Def!
