Weeaboo Weekend

I went back home to NYC for the weekend. While there, I officially declared my visit the Japanese Weekend: I only ate ramen, pork katsu and curry, and Japanese barbecue, and cream puff pastries from Beard Papa. I bought more books at Kinokuniya than I should have. I watched anime until I fell asleep. All in all, I enjoyed myself more than I had in a long time.

The trip inspired me to post about a recent hobby of mine: collecting anime figures. The first figure I bought was Yoko Littner from Gurren Lagann, many years ago. I bought some figures later during my three-day trip to Tokyo, but I never had the resources to buy much until a few months ago. Below you’ll find some of my collection.
