Because one Kamen Rider War wasn't enough...

I can't wait for May, because Kamen Rider Battride War is coming out and I preordered a copy. Got the premium edition. Well you see there isn't much difference between the two besides one main thing. In the premium edition you get the themes of the Kamen Riders... I think there's a total of 30 copyright songs in the game that you get or something. I don't remember what was writen on AmiAmi's site. All I remember was I had to preorder it, because... KAMEN RIDER. Here is a preview movie straight from Bandai-Namco.

Though you get to see quite a few Riders the main focus seems to be on Wizard since he's the newest Rider, and it makes sense to just kinda show off the new guy.
Because no post about Kamen Rider would be a post without the signature Rider Kick
I really can't blame them though, Wizard's element changing ability is a pretty cool thing to show, he's got lots of powers and it could make the game really interesting. I think the best part of the preview is when see Den-O in Liner form preforming the Densha Giri. Just because Ryoutaro and Kamen Rider Den-O is probably my favorite from the series.

Speaking of Liner Forms and Kamen Rider Den-O, I did preorder said action figure.

I know these scale of toys aren't really my thing, but with my redecorating I just wanted some of them to add to my collection and to display. There are way more than just this guy, but I'd thought I would just add it in this post since I ended up talking about Den-O for a bit.

To be honest I was just lucky I could preorder him. I was trying to go to sleep and just checked AmiAmi and there he was up, so I just took it as a sign and preordered him. And that's the end of the boring story.

Like I said I did preorder more and it will be coming up in another post, but I will just say now, it's just Wizard toys. Because Wizard is the Kamen Rider currently. But I ordered another one from another show, though I won't tell you who it is.

Hikounin Sentai Akibaranger Season 2

Tokusatsu series always have a special place in my heart (and in my wallet). And I just wanted to show everyone the second season promo of  "Hikounin Sentai Akibaranger". If you've never seen Akibaranger and grew up watching the Sentai Series/Power Rangers. This show will actually be a nostalgia trip for you, as it's made for the the audience that has grown up on this stuff. Anyway, it features Akiba-Red just being himself. And the actor is very emotional and puts his all into even the short preformance and really pulls off being a great sentai otaku.

If anything, I really can't wait for the second season to start. I also cannot wait to see how the new Akiba-Blue is going to pan out. Also love the fact that KozKoz is going to wear male uniforms instead of female ones in the sentai cafe.

Oh boy~Oh BOY~OH BOY!!!!!!!

Sakuracon, Lolita, and BEAST

So as Sakuracon draws closer I'm getting pumped up for various reasons.

I got my Instax camera and waiting for film. Yeah it probably seems really lame for a person still taking pictures with a regular camera that prints out film. But I want to keep my memories, and it seems when I use my digital camera I never print out pictures. While if I have a camera that develops on the spot I can enjoy my pictures and create long lasting memories in an album or scrapbook.

Friend is coming back on the 24 which is the same day my mom is leaving. Now I get a three month vacation from my mother, which is a nice break since my mom is sort of unstable. Now I'm not being mean, I love my mom but distance away from her every once in a while is good. And she gets to see her family back home in the P.I. Also she's doing me a little favor. She's fixing a skirt of mine that I can't fit.
Angelic Pretty Sweet Cream House-Pink
Yeah so she's going to get the seamstress to take the waist ties and turn it into an extension for the waist so that I can finally wear the skirt. I really love the skirt and its super cute in person. But I'm glad she's doing this favor for me since it will be nice for me to have it fixed. Also she's going to get a vest fixed for me as well.
Metamorphose Fancy Egg Vest
I actually thought the shirring on the Fancy Egg vest was going to fit me... Was wrong... So she's going to get the seamstress to deconstruct it and add panels of black on the side. I just have to get the materials for that though.

I know that other lolitas don't like it when people alter their things, but these are mine. And I won't be reselling them anyway since I buy my things to keep. And lots of lolitas in Japan do it as well. I've actually bought some skirts that have had their shirring 100% removed and second hand clothing is always more loose more the time, so I have no problem with not getting my money back if I end up selling them, but I don't really intend to anyway. I think the irony of getting these fixed when my mom is in the Philippines though is... Both on the tag say "Made in the Philippines".

Lastly I was browsing Premium Bandai for some cool Kamen Rider W or Kamen Rider Wizard stuff when I stopped upon this.
Kosuke Nitoh's Wolf Vest
It's Kosuke Nitoh (Kamen Rider Beast) replica of his vest. It's a really cool ota-good and I so want it. Along with his token Lion shirt and belt. The vest alone though comes in an XL size and is meant to stay open so there's no need to worry if it's small and I can fit Japanese XL size just fine (Mens XL) so I'm really looking into purchasing this. The one thing though is it's about 22,000 yen so pretty much a dress second hand. But I really can't stop looking at it. So if I end up not buying a dress at Sakuracon or not being able to... There's still something I can purchase at home that weekend.

The one downside of the vest is the fake fur part is darker than Kosuke's in the series.
Haruto and Kosuke before turning into Wizard and Beast
See it's a more natural color in the actual show, but I'm not complaining all that much. Since they also have it in a light blue vest as well. I'm a bit sad though... All the XL lion shirts are sold out. I really wanted one. But they still have Buffa, Dolphi, Cameleo, and Falco shirts left all based on his mantles and they look just as awesome.

Only 24 days left till the con. SHITS GONNA BE EPIC. Hopefully I'll eventually decide what to wear and I hope everyone going will have a good time... And I hope I'm not sick for day one. I always seem to get sick on day one of every con I go to. But I'm just getting better from whatever dumb crud has been going around, since I interact with people constantly. But you know... Got my time off and only work two days that week so it's going to be fun regardless.
