Thank you Madara Uchiha!

It took a while to get here, but it finally arrived. Customs must have been curious about what my gift was too!

(Kyouko-censored)

Time to open :D

Padded with some Japanese newspaper. The sports section - there seems to have been some horse racing event on recently.

enter image description here

Turfy \o/

Now, back to the gift! After taking out the newspaper, there was.....

enter image description here

A figurine of Mikasa Ackerman from Attack On Titan! (At this point I was shaking - half with happiness/excitement, half because I had gone to the gym just before coming home to open it)

I carefully took her out of her encasing and started checking out poses and different accessories - She's very customizable :D

enter image description hereenter image description here

Mikasa is my first full size figurine ( I have a Yotsuba& keydongle and a tiny non-posable Lucky Star figure), So I am super happy to get my first one today ^__^. Here are some photos of Mikasa in action

enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here

I then had to eat, because I didn't realise so much time had passed!

I started getting into photography this year, so Mikasa will be my first model :D I looked up some guides online to improve my photos. There's lots I need to try doing - Different lighting, backgrounds, angles, ... I look forward to it :D

Myself and Mikasa are so happy we could die:

BUT NOT UNTIL WE AVENGE MADARA'S GIFT IN THE NEXT SECRET SANTA!! D:<

Seems like I am the first one to be showing off. I received the manga: "The book of human insects".

I were a bit skeptical at first by the images shown on the cover, but the title actually got my hopes up. After reading the first 50 pages or so, I really started to like the story. And managed to read the whole thing in 2 days ;)

Thanks allot for the awesome gift ^^!

I got the first three (or in fact the first nine, since they're 3-in-1) volumes of the manga version of Neon Genesis Evangelion from Asada Shino.

The covers of the 3 volumes
The spines of the 3 volumes Some random pages from the 3 volumes

I haven't had the chance to read them yet, but I'm pretty sure I'll love them (the anime is one of my favourites). I can't thank my gifter enough, and these books will have a special spot on the shelf!

And I hope we can make the gift exchange work again next year~

I totally forgot that this post existed.

enter image description here

I got this awesome set of things--fuzzy socks, a cat glasses case, a coin purse, a few plushies, a cat hoodie-cape, some sort of egg-shaped thing, a phone charm, a Sailor Moon pen, and a Sailor Moon bow clip.

I thought I knew who my secret santa was, but I realized I have no idea, so thanks to whoever you might be.

    Keep watching! It gets better. Take is the illustrator of the original light novels, so the style is more inline with the original concepts then the anime versions. – кяαzєя Jan 19 '15 at 9:31
  • yea every time I finished one episode I saw this book, it's pretty cool. But I must resist the urge to see next chapter :( I like their art, so colorful. And Cheerio :D – Darjeeling Jan 20 '15 at 2:53

Thank you Oshino Shinobu for the amazing gift!

I actually got mine a few days ago, but was too busy to post and show it off. So here I am!

I got home after a long week away, to find it waiting for me. At first I didn't know what it was, but then I understood once I saw the address. Excited, I made sure to take images before I tear it open (Okay, maybe I forgot and started tearing it open before I took the picture, don't judge me!) (Banana for scale):

Package Inner Package

And in the package was... An adorable Chibi figure of Eren from Attack on Titan!

Box Standing Box

Along with 2 beautiful bookmarks and keychain holders

Bookmarks The whole thing

Some poses:

Thank you for a gift that will surely make a permanent addition to my desk :D
