Sugoi Monogatari, Oniichan: Taiwan Animanga Expo Pictures

| 6 Comments

Oh, before you get all jealous and what not, let me just say one thing:

Nothing beats being at an Animanga Expo and continuously hearing anime OP/ED songs that you know. BAM. I said it.

Oh, and this is an EXTREMELY LONG post…but it’s all pictures, so you’ll be fine.

Gundam Artbook? Must get.

Day 1 Haul

It’s annoying how it’s no longer a 18A sticker…it’s directly printed on the sleeve.

DRRR!! merchandise that I’ve been dying to get my hands on.

I was finally able to get my hands on a Tama-nee figure. The pose on this girl was just fantabulous!

DRRR!! mug. I wish they had a DOLLARS one, but it was sold out ;A;

Sonico Prelude artbook/game guide and some discount manga~

Tony’s Artworks. Very lavish book and is apparently limited. Pleased with the buy though!

The Kadokawa Shoten booth provides these limited SoraOto bags upon purchase of adequate amount (Front)

Same bag, backside.

 

 

Day 2 Pictures

10 minutes after it opened for the day, the expo is already PACKED.

Some Gundam merch that I decided not to capitalize on (was on budget during Day 2)

The line up for the cashier at 10:20, 20 minutes after opening, at one of the less popular booths.

I apologize for the blurriness, but this was the line up for the most popular booth…whose name escapes me. Just know it provides anime from Denpa Onna to Naruto. Now you know.

BLESS THE GODS. FINALLY AT THE BOOTH FRONT. AFTER 45 MINUTES OF KNEE-BREAKING WAITING.

Limited Tony Select Clear Posters. Only 400 were available at the expo, and at the opening of Day 2, there were less than 100 left. Definitely capitalized on this. Kantoku’s was also limited to the same quantity too, but couldn’t afford buying two sets.

Miku concert ad on a bus. I believe it’s here on 10/6. Sucks how I always miss out on concerts like these… ;A;

Newspaper headline saying that the Animanga Expo is packed with over 100,000 participants. Increasing sales by 200%.

WHAT THE HELL? VOFAN WAS DOING SIGNINGS ON THE OPENING DAY? I WAS THERE. WHY DIDN’T I ASK FOR ONE. GOD I’M SUCH AN OTA-NOOB.

GSC figure gallery in a department store nearby.

WHY ARE ALL THE GOOD THINGS ALREADY SOLD OUT.

BRS tube.

Fate/Zero tube

Miku Tube…derp…why did I only take a shot of this figure?!

She hit my heart…

Ceiling cat. Nyaa.

Can you locate the one you own?

Charlotte is there to prevent otaku folk from humping the wall.

 

 

Day 2 Haul

 

Sonico / Tony Artbook. Very expensive items ;A;…oh and do notice Nagato’s Rinnegan eye cover. Time to scare the living daylights out of my future dormmate.

Akatsuki mug. Now I can feel like I’m one of them fufufufu :3

I blame the camera. Whatever. Note the delicate poster box.

Moekana cards. #BestLearningMaterialEver

Atelier bag I got from sufficient purchase amount. Really wanted the Miku one instead, but the design on the Miku bag wasn’t as kawaii as this.

Freebies, because I’m a bishie.

FINALLY A SONICO FIGURE. AND ONE WITH LONG HAIR. MY LIFE IS COMPLETE.

More freebies I got…but this was because I paid for the expensive Sonico figure.

Anyways, that’s a wrap!

I would’ve really liked to take more pictures, but recently my hands have been shaking non-stop, so I can’t take great images. On top of that, my camera isn’t that good. However, despite already having gone to the expo for 2 days straight, I would like to visit it again on it’s final day, Tuesday.

Also, note for anyone going to the expo: Sure the ticket is cheap and most things are well-priced…but when you go from booth to booth, the price adds up remarkably quickly…and you’ll end up broke like me and having to go home early~!

Regardless, come enjoy the expo while you can!

  1. Which two Madoka trading figures did you get? I was too picky about wanting ONLY Homura or Kyoko that I ended up skipping those. And man, GSC nendoroids are so, so cute! I love that Yamada from the ceiling one ^^

    Looking back, I now wish I had bought the moekana cards. I figured I didn’t need them since I already know them, but the cards are so adorable and great for having just for teaching purposes. I also had a hard time resisting all the available mugs at AX since I already have a million :(

    Yay for the pics! Thanks for following through on posting them so soon! I’m just drooling over the Rin figure and all your DRRR!! goods.

    • I got the same….for both. Gah. Well it’s Miki Sayaka, so it’s not like I’m going to hate XD.

      They weren’t cheap, about $10 USD, but they seemed essential to my collection of anime-related merchandise XD

      I only had a Char Aznable mug prior to getting the 2 new ones, so I guess I’m allowed?

      No problem~! It was pleasure to get to share my pictures from the expo, so of course I wanted to post them ASAP :3

      DROOL MOAR.

  2. Damn, that two F/SN-F/Z figures are on the top of my wishlist! I chose not to buy due to budget purposes and ended up regretting ever since. Oh well D:

    • Yeah…I would’ve bought at least 3 more figures if I had more money on me today…however I already spent most of my budget on the limited edition artworks. However…I know I’ll have a chance to get those figures…it’ll just take a lot of patience to scour through the net XD

      BTW, if you wishlist the certain item on MyFigureCollection, they do notify you whenever an item you’ve wish-listed is being sold by another MFC member. Definitely something I’d look into!

  3. Oh Tony artwork is always delicious. Luka Megurine figures though are even greater *drools*

    • Yup! Got a ton of Tony artwork from the expo! 1 limited edition poster set, 1 elaborate design book, and 1 art book!

      Really wanted to get the Luka figure too, but Sonico was on my wishlist for a longer time ;A;
