Miles “Tails” Prower

Another item in my wish list. Available after July 2008.

This is Miles (a.k.a Tails) from Sonic the Hedgehog series and my favourite character. My friends has been insisting me why I always call him Miles when his name is widely known as Tails. Little do they know his original name is Miles Prower but later changed to Tails due to company interest.

Quote from the wikipedia:

Tails was originally intended to be a tanuki, a strikingly raccoon-like canid native to east Asia, and extremely popular in Japanese folklore. The designers decided to change him to a fox, however, to avoid possible comparisons with another popular game character. His entry won, but Sonic Team decided to change his character’s name from “Miles” to “Tails”. Yamaguchi ended up with a compromise. He sneaked the name “Miles” in as his legal name; “Tails” would be his nickname, ending up with the full name of Miles “Tails” Prower.

Aftermath of The Japan Trip

A Japan trip will never be complete without some anime shopping. While weight was not an issue when I brought these goodies back, the available space on the baggage was total exhausted. With so much stuff to bring home, I was so desperate to seek every single inch I could salvage from any hand carry or main luggage.

Toy of the Day: Fraulein Revoltech

I love Revoltech toys and has been eyeing this Rei for some time now. Only recently released on to the shelf (1st January 2008), I guess I’m the one of the few to bring it back to the Australian shores. Muahaha. I bought this from the only anime shop that I noticed in Teramachi Street and from there I realised how cheap they were compared to the prices the locals charged in Australia. Pricks.

Pictures look a little grainy and I apologise. I’m still a newbie to the new Nikon camera and am still learning the way of the DSLR. No more spoon feeding when it comes to focusing.

 

Xmas terror

It vibrates, it makes noise and it is a disturbing flurry Santa head.

They will no longer remember Santa as a friendly and full of Christmas warmth person that visits your home when you are asleep. We will no longer remember Santa as a kid-loving fat chap that gives presents to all the kids in the world. Thanks to Big-W, we now remember Santa as a deranged mad person exerting himself to escape his cage and lay his terror amongst us.

Wish List #2

Today is a wish list listing day :p

The next wish list item is the adorable-cockroaches-whacking-android, Hoi Hoi-san. Originated from a manga, there’s a 10 minute short OVA anime that introduces Hoi Hoi-san and her competitor’s product Combat-san, outwitting each other in their line of business, that is whacking creepy crawlies late at night. Like the peeps out there said in the review, “She’s adorable, but creepy”. See more pics | See Summary
