Matsumoto Jun – Asian Pacific Arts articles

As always, I was browsing on the web for Arashi news and located two fabulous Asian Pacific Arts articles regarding Jun-kun. Even more astonishing that they are English interviews with him, sugoi! I’ve read numerous of translated article, finding his answers always inspiring and beautiful. Reading it in raw English was even better, he was certainly amazing. Though, I find it funny that the article called him The Matsujun, I’m use to seeing Matsumoto. I found that following rather cute and quite true:

He’s a normal person like you and me, but undeniably, with more perfect hair.

On a side note, I do hope that an Arashi will hold a concert in America one day. They are certainly more than welcome to stay as long as they like.

Links to the articles are as follows:

One Piece – New P.O.P. Figures

It’s been a while since I have ordered anime figures, too rich for my blood. I would be broke if I purchased on impulse. Now I need to pay a mortgage and loads of bills, definitely don’t want to do, do we? I have a rather small collection of the One Piece – Mugiwara Kaizoku-dan gang at the moment. However, I could not resist this time, Megahouse will be releasing chibi versions of three One Piece members in July. They are just sooo adorable, I need to pre-order them at once.

Nodame Cantabile Fanbook and other goodies

Wow, that was fast! I had ordered a few Nodame Cantabile goods from Yesasia, knowing it may take between 7 to 14 days for them to resolve the items. However, I had received them within a week; found a package on my porch this morning. May I say that I am quite happy at the moment! Took them to work today and will browse them during my lunch break.
