It's hyper Nayu time! Well, my body wants to do this....
...but in my mind I'm like this....
As you can see there is quite a difference between the sleepy me and the excited me. Why am I excited? Well...
Once upon a time, in a galaxy not far from here...
...alright alright! I'll quit with the Star Wars intro. Some of you may have spied this manga, Shugo Chara in my memes.
I've got 2 or 3 books in the series. It's super cute, a magical girl anime (girl with magical powers who has to save others). What makes Shugo Chara so special for me is that there are lots of character transformations (which I love thanks to video games).
A while back I stumbled across the amazing news that it's not just a manga series (not that there's ever any 'just' about manga), but an anime series too. So off I went to my usual beloved Amazon. I then saw the priced and sighed. It was like Strawberry Marshmallow anime scenario (link goes to my other blog, which is now in stasis). It was what I call silly money. I checked the US, French, UK, and even the Italian sites. It still wasn't cheap. So I figured I wouldn't get it.
The other week or so I found a fun picture, clicked it on it, then discovered it was from the anime of Shugo Chara. I looked on You Tube and adored the short clip I saw. I went back to Amazon, but the prices were still the same. Today I typed it into Google, then used the shopping search function, and saw it for reasonable prices in a few online stores.
I'm wary about shopping online with companies I don't know. I discovered there's not 1 but 3 anime seasons in the series. Buying them separately would have cost quite a bit. However, I then saw all three seasons in a bundle set on ebay.
I had to wait a while until I could sort out buying it (the wait was torture. Even though there were 7 copies, I prayed hard they wouldn't all disappear). Now I'd managed to do something odd to my ebay account a few years ago, so I haven't used it for ages. The last time I tried to reset the password I blocked myself out. This time it went smoothly. I hastily bought it. It should come here withing 14 business days...but judging from the seller's feedback it could be quicker than that.
It's hard to explain how excited I am about this. You know how much I love Winx, right? Well, Shugo Chara is right up there with Winx. The protagnoist, Ami, can transform not into just 1 character, but 3! I love anime with living dolls/animals/creatures, and I'm deeply thrilled to be able to have my own copy (hopefully not a pirate version...unliked 2 programmes I bought off ebay a long time ago).
So I'm going to be keeping an eye out for dvd like packages in the post for the next two weeks.
Today I'm still a bit tired, so I'm going to settled down with watching Winx
and Negima tonight.
Have a great day! Here's yet another new picture of my Twitter Avatar, Holo from the anime Spice and Wolf)
