Okay, it’s not a nendoroid but hear me out.
Back when I was in middle school, I remember this show called Digimon. Pokemon had just started getting popular around this tiny little town along with the rest of the United States and one of my close friends had started to talk about this show. She talked about the characters and, well, the Digimon that accompanied them. And honestly?
I didn’t care. It was the beginning of my anime lifestyle anyway. I had this feeling that I was always going to be interested in this media and I know there’s going to be ways to have fun with it. :3 Figures, in my opinion at least, are part of the fanfiction, fanart, etc part of fandom I think is amazing. ^^ Without fandom, we wouldn’t have all these wonderful creations expanded!
And with figures, I think that’s another way to show off your love for either the media or the series that you adore. ^^ I love too many series to really list them all – but while I don’t watch the new Digimon series anymore or keep up with the franchise as much as I used to (or rather, could have if we had the Internet as amazing as it is now back then), I have a very strong fondness for Digimon and especially Yamato Ishida.
Well, it’s time for a confession.
He’s my first anime crush.
I’m a little embarrassed to admit it but eh… At least I know he’s not real. But when this figure came out for pre-order, I begged and begged my boyfriend for me to preorder him because he knew about my crush back in the day… But he said no, only because we were going through some financial issues and we weren’t sure if we were going to get out of it.
And now, we’re having trouble deciding our futures here in our current state, much less if we’re going to go to Anime Expo this year. So, maybe not right now. And that’s why he’s wishlisted. I really want to to see if I can at least achieve him before the end of the year.
Don’t get me wrong! Chu is not against Yamato! He actually kinda wants the Taichi figure as well but right now… money. Money, money, money. T_T All I can do is admire the beautiful pictures and hope that we can make our decision soon. Because as soon as we both make our decision about where we’re going to live, the sooner I can get this figure.
