lol... If what goes in your head is a figure of Tony Taka... then no. It's a figure of a character drawn by Tony Taka, that happens to be very NSFW, which i forgot that it's not permitted here...

Will post the direct link instead... but i will check the rule first, wheter it's allowed or not.

Turn out that even link is not allowed... I want to post the picture instead, but the picture is including a very skimpy bikini and the girl spreading her legs... And that particular pict was also deleted by Message, not just the cast-off one... I don't want to get banned... T.T

If you still curious just google, "Kotone Ousaka" with or without quote marks are fine... should lead you to the page at dannychoo.com


OOT:
And in case any of the mod should read this, just an input... I think rule number 3 should be clearer... what is adult material?? does topless considered adult material or only the bottom part that matters? Does it only regarding the clothes, or suggestive pose is also taken into consideration (e.g. Legs spread, or something along the line)?? Or is it it simply based on Moderator's judgment??

I have no problem which one it is... But i think link should be okay... as long as the site it direct to is not a specific adult site, or a really disturbing site... I guess something along the level of Sankakucomplex should still be okay... It's up to you guys though....

You can try this site http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/special/calendar/anime.html . The prices are in Yen though.

You can also try http://www.animecornerstore.com/2009calendars.html . But look for the word imported. The prices are in USD. Also they do not have that many.

I like the cdjapan site. It takes some time for them to send you the product, but it gets to you in perfect condition. Also they seems to only keep new items. If you spend a lot of money you will get some Yen back too. Just a thought.

Isn't it better to look for japanese based website for merchandises??? Well, I guess if you love in US, it's not much problem to look for US based store.... but other than that... I think it's better to go for Japanese based website...

Oh, if you planning to buy a lot of book as well, i recommend http://www.amazon.co.jp/. Some of their calendars (some, not all) are categorized as Japanese books. I got my CLANNAD calendar from them. But unless you are planning to buy tons of books -I bought around Y 24,000 last time- the shipping cost would be unbearable... -_-

Try looking http://www.hlj.com/ and Hobby Search as well...

I thought that there website dose not ship to the USA (well I don't know what country the person who asked about this is from, but I know CD Japan ships out of Japan). Correct me if I am wrong at this one.

Also CDJapan is a Japanese site. The link I gave is just to the English version. (I can't find the Japanese version anymore though) They are also stationed in Tokyo. Well That's where they ship the products from. They are also very reliable since there was a time when I didn't recieve a package, and I told them and they send me another one. I ended up paying for the other one since I found out the post office had the first package and well I didn't want to give up the second copy since the CD comes with post cards so I ended up keeping it too. Well I could have sent back the second, but the story here is that they are a nice site and English friendly.

If there is a way to use that site could you tell me how????? :?

Oh ya Anime in USA is a lot cheaper too. I saw Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei for like 7900 Yen. Well at Right Stuff has a really good sales. I got School Rumble for $7 a volume. It was a super cool deal. Also I noticed everything in Japan cost so much more. When I play a game in a arcade it costs 500 Yen, but the game was online and you sit in this big black ball and fight in Gundams. Man it was so fun and you even got a pilot card too. Man I got killed though like it was cool. But yes things in Japan cost a tad bit too much. Also I payed 5000 Yen for steak. But they do have some cheap stuff too like I got this GBA for 500 Yen. Yes that is no lie but it was used and well it was in a very good condition. So I could not pass that offer.

Food, clothes, some games, arcades (100-500 Yen per play) Pachinko (I never made money from this game:() and the list goes on. Even the taxis cost a lot, well it depends where you are though, but I do love the taxis over there compared to over here.

Order yourself an issue of CompAce, which includes a copy of a TYPE-MOON calendar, which runs for a year long!

I believe that's what the magazine is called when converted to English text...

Oh I do not know. I was just implying that the anime merchandise cost more in Japan then the States(Only for some items). Last time I was there though was in March 2008. So things could have changed by now. Anywho is anyone thinking about getting these cards? http://www.hlj.com/product/SIL04143

It looks very nice, but I have to wait till I get paid next :( . I am just aiming for a Kohaku card, but I believe my chances are high since it is 60000 Yen.

You can always subscribe to Japanese magazines at J-List, But i think buying at local Kinokuniya store is better, unless you live at US.

btw Jin, is that CompAce release TYPE-MOON calendar as bonus in one issue... or release each month calendar respective to the month it being released, and later those monthly calendar can be bundle together???

The calendar is a bonus that comes with one of the issues for the CompAce magazine, sorry if I made it sound confusing.

It comes in the 3rd issue of 2009, and for more ease, here's a link to the issue
http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10081088

The calendar is just about the same size as the one that came with the first issue of TYPE-MOON Ace, so it's not 'big', but it definitely looks good in a room.

EDIT: The dimensions for the calendar are 18cm across, and 26cm vertically. You'll most likely be hanging it up, so you could say its 52cm vertically, since both sides will be hanging down at once all the time.

680 yen... Cost me bloody 24.79AUD ><

The 00 is a cheap figure to introduce people to the line - it's not supposed to be good.

I only got it because it was cheap, and I didn't have a transam figure yet.


Anyway... the other new arrival, finally assembled - the Arios!

PS... @Nerroth..

HG? It looks like HG... but the beam saber looks alittle too.. rod-like.. >_<
