It all began a few years ago. I happened upon the anime series "Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase" On-Demand. They only showed the first 2 episodes as a preview, but within those 40+ minutes or so I had absolutely fallen in love with Hazuki. She was so adorable and bratty, I think I experienced Moe before I even knew what it was. Every smile and pout she made melted by heart. Unfortunately, I never really got into the series. I saw a few random episodes here and there on TV, but that was it.
I happened across the gorgeous Hazuki PVC figure by Alter about a month or so back, but couldn't afford it at the time, so I saved it for later viewing. I then promptly forgot about it.
Yesterday, however, when deciding how to spend a little of my summer money, I looked through my saved items and found it again. All those warm and fuzzy feelings I got whenever I saw Hazuki returned instantly. The figure perfectly captures her impossible cuteness. I thought about buying it, but it didn't make sense when I technically hadn't really seen
the series. I checked out RightStuf, and what do you know: the beautifully well done Moon Phase boxset from FUNimation was in the Bargain Bin. I picked that up, thus justifying my purchase of the figure.
I also snatched up the Ultimate Edition of "WXIII: Patlabor the Movie 3", along with the Robert Redford movie "Sneakers" and some new headphones to replace the shitty
ones I got with my new Mp3 player, all of which I planned to get anyway.
