The Grand Battle Of December 25th 20XX: War Spoils (The Haul ’08)


  • Gurren Lagann PART I w/ box and core drill
  • Reading lamp
  • Zero no Tsukaima
  • Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha
  • Toki Wo Kakeru Shoujo SE
  • Insignia MP3 player
  • Yokai Attack! (review copy)
  • Black Lagoon s2 vol 1 SE
  • Karin vol 4

Not Pictured

  • 190 US dollars in COLD HARD CASH
  • Two pairs of pants

All of my Nanoha DVD cases are shattered, but the discs are fine. The cover slips are kind of torn, but it isn’t that bad. If I could just get my hands on new cases I’d be cool. Anyone know where they sell clear DVD cases?

The MP3 player doesn’t have enough room for my anison playlist, but I hardly listen to every single song on there anyways. I’m planning to just load it up with a bunch of OSTs along with some non-anime JP bands, and use what space is left over for the top 100 or so anison I’m currently into. Not like I get out and about much anyways, but at least I’ll be able to listen to AWO on long car rides.

Overall, a really good haul. I got everything I wanted…

…except for a new laptop, but that was just wishful thinking. I just forced my parents into buying me a new PC six months ago…

    Wow, not a bad haul, if I do say so myself. =D

    Man, I’m really jealous of that core drill.

  2. TheBigN says:

    You got the GL box, therefore, you win. :P

  3. Ryoko says:

    Not bad at all.
    Say, I may ask, what’s going on with the blanket that the gifts are laying on?
    I like the pattern.

  4. It’s a random Iranian carpet we’ve had for years. It’s been in my room for a while.

    I will sell you my soul for the ZnT O______O must…have…

  6. It’s only like 30 dollars

  7. Shinpachi says:

    34.19 at dvdpacific plus shipping, to be exact, unless you’ve got a better source… But dude, how’s the core drill? Does it come on a key chain, have a hole through which one might attach a loop, or nothing? I’m getting it anyway, just don’t want to be disappointed when it arrives. Also, nice haul.

  8. You can run a string through it, but it’d probably fall off.

  9. digitalboy says:

    zero is one thing but zero AND nanoha? could you possibly fucking fail harder?

  10. Zero no Tsukaima is high-production-value fluff, and I’ve heard great things about Nanoha.

  11. tomoyo says:

    Nanoha=epic win. The first series was under Shinbou’s supervision, too….(though more in the older Shinbou style of stuff like Yamamoto Yohko and Yuna Returns).

  12. SSJSquall says:

    I myself am tempted to get the Zero no Tsukaima Box set, other than the episodes in DVD quality, is there anything else on the discs that would seal the deal?

  13. I haven’t looked at the discs, but the only DVD bonuses the box lists are texless openings and endings :V
