While Anime USA was this past weekend, it will be later in the week before I post my report on it. The reason for this is that there's a more important thing for me to cover first: the fact that I turned 30 years old today.
My birthday began immediately when I got home from the convention when I discovered that while I was gone, my parents bought me a new bookshelf for my bedroom (after all, I'm the type of person who ends up getting a number of items and need a place to put them)....

This problem has happened twice in the past month for me.
Some time ago, I mentioned that summer may be a busy period when it comes to figurine collecting, what with Otakon, possible sales, and the usual pre-orders. Today, my first pre-order of the summer arrived in the mail.
