Like an enormous, obsessive geek, I bought the three Gankutsuou tankouban in original Japanese off eBay, mostly because I wanted to see the full cover art that the english language volumes obscure. It's quite nice, and I was pleasantly surprised to find the dust jackets also have colour art on their interior flaps, and the first few pages of each volume are in colour as well as Japanese tankouban so often are.

No other perks or extras but I will probably do some page by page thumb-throughs comparing the translation with the original because, again, enormous geek over here. I might start collecting all the Gankutsuou merchandise I can. Enough time has passed since the show aired that there'll at last be a degree of difficulty to it... Right now I have the artbook, the two production books, the boxset of the series, a teeshirt, a pin, some other detritus... I should probably look into getting the official doujinshi anthology and the novels but damn, eBay is useless for finding deals anymore.

My sister-in-law is pretty sick with some manner of disease that involves a lot of snot, so I watched my niece most of the day. While we were wrestling she bit my right tit so hard it now has visibly bruised teeth marks on it. She's going to make some lucky dyke very happy one day.

Would you like to gaze upon her majesty? I haven't posted a picture in a while. I like this one 'cause she looks like I'm about to lock her in a soundproof shed in the backyard for fifteen years. And her little tutu, too!

She has a really awesome vocabulary. I can get her to stay out of most drawers and cabinets now by saying they have bugs in them. There's a bedroom full of headless mannequins and she'll touch their neck stumps, puff out her lower lip, and whine "Owwww!"

That's probably enough niece wank. Back to your life with you!
