Rise of the Yen.............and other things too
Unfortunately, it seems there are other things on the rise apart from the sweltering-record-high-summer temperatures in Japan.
In Cirno, We Trust
Just recently, the ￥(Yen/En) currency of a certain country has spiked to a preposterous forex rate. How this happened is beyond you or my control, but shit happens. And it's about to hit the fan......
T'was midway ordering some figures until this piece of information caught my attention. Checked the latest rates on PayPal and went bonkers. But I bought them anyway, which I'll post about on another time.
Guess I'll need to limit the amount of spending and somehow manage the rest of my existing preorders. This is gonna hurt.......so badly...........TT_TT
Apart from that, summer temperatures are soaring and breaking a few things, like surpassing the 35 degree Celcius mark. Speaking from a country which has a similar temperature all year round, this is pretty much unbearable.
Pools too are ,as of late, the ideal getaway from the unbearable heat rising from the asphalt.
Until you happen to encounter a brown iceberg floating by from the kiddie's pool.........
Animation Market on the Roll Once Again.
report from the Media Research Institute's states the domestic and foreign Animation Market grew to 1.6% in 2009.
Market consist mostly of merchandises, TV subscriptions and disc sales which added up to ￥216.4 billion.
Why did I highlight this?
I like to see our purchases contributing to some statistic value and to the growth of a certain country. =)
Cuppantsu Out of Stock
fetish trend has been bought out by patrons of an adult department store, emptying all stocks of 'pantsu-in-a-cup', thanks to the summer heat.
Reports of a month's worth of "Cuppantsu" was emptied in just three days. Many still debate whether Mio's flavour is stronger than Miku's pantsu.....

Child Pornography as "Thank You" Gifts
