I don't know if I'd call it amazing, but it's certainly reasonable again for the first time since 2008.

I just bought a few things through Yahoo Auctions and the conversion rate was almost 1 to 1.

Yeah, but it's still stronger than the dollar by a bit, and back in 2008, the dollar was stronger by a bit. Definitely nice, don't get me wrong, but amazing would be like it was a couple of years before 2008, when it was like 120 yen to the dollar.

It's mostly guys in the Euro zone who gets it the most out of the current Yen value.

The exchange rate is amazing right now, I think I might cry.

I just hope it lasts!
And then they raise the price to compensate www

Well my most recent Blu-ray purchase was about $13 dollars cheaper than my last one in November.

I've certainly noticed (in the UK) that I'm getting a much better deal on buying stuff.

I'm just so glad since there's so much stuff I already pre-ordered and then last month the oven and washing machines broke which I had to pay for as my Mum didn't have enough money (she's paying me back, but it took a massive dent in the only money I have).

Yet Japan relies on imports just as much (maybe even more), and those will be more expensive to buy when your money is worth less

Money, a weird game I fail to understand

Why does she have to pay you back?
Aren't you getting use of those devices as well?

Having a hobby is nice, but still a luxury, don't forget that priorities weigh heavier than some lumps of plastic

Got my Sena and Kuroyuki today. Forced me to re-arrange my winged girls shelf entirely, due to Sena's massive base. I have Tenshi due next month so have to keep that in mind too.

This is discounting Madokami, and all the winged Touhou girls, as they are on their own series focused shelves. Also I have a Ziska I didn't put on this shelf, as despite being a beautiful figure, she doesn't quite belong with this lot.

Nope, just wings. Purely coincidence they all happen to have relatively short skirts. Madokami does too. Only Remilia and Flandre have skirts beyond their knees, of winged girls I have. Most people like leg, or just zettai ryouiki, I guess. Not something I've paid much attention to until you pointed it out.

It's probably harder to find figures with skirts that aren't short.

Most of my Touhou girls have > knee length skirts. Though looking across my collection they seem to be the only ones really. Millhi's skirts, I guess. And Sasara's hakama. Quite sad, now it's come to my attention. ;.;

I didn't notice that base until it was mentioned.

Is that a base or a plate.

It is Sena's base, with pins that go in to her feet; that she needs, she is not remotely well balanced and there is no way she'd stand on her own even creatively propping her.

The magical girls I have:



I like how the Symphogear girls are more super hero-looking than the Madoka girls I have. Sorry for the subpar lighting.
