  1. Has anybody gotten the HG Aerial already? I saw some pics on Twitter, and it's backordered now at HLJ. I still haven't gotten my Shenlong and I feel like cancelling both in frustrationšŸ˜©
  2. Oh well, I was hoping to ship it along with the items already in my PW. If it gets delayed that far it would be shipping with the HG Aerial. Hopefully my preorder makes the cut for an earlier arrival than the Shenlong.
  3. Thanks, I haven't been ordering much lately (or since the pandemic hit, actually) so I didn't notice. Who's the most reliable seller nowadays?
  4. Has anybody here already got their HGAC Shenlong from HLJ? There's already reviews but my PW doesn't have it. If it's only me who hasn't gotten one I was thinking of inquiring from them about it...
  5. Glad I got their books from the Humble Bundle sale a while ago. Physical books are better but I don't have the space for them (and they are so low on my priority list). Would have taken me ages to get to them, and would probably go out of print by then.
  6. Thanks. Now that I've seen (or re-seen?) that, it now reminds me of Ai-kun space form. It's the mecha version haha

    Macross Books

    Isn't this expensive for just 96 pages?
  8. Yeah those marine type suits have odd designs. That looks like a big insect! Was this in UC? I don't remember it.
  9. They may be making more money on limited editions if they have certain number of orders. But I'm not in the gunpla business so I'm not sure if that's true. Anyway, are there any other quirky suits like the Kapool and Wodom? I got the Build Divers version of those because I thought they were funny. (Basically a lot of Turn A suits are in this category.) I don't really follow the UC timeline after 08th MS Team (have tried to finish Zeta I am still not done lol). For alternate U I watched several episodes of IBO but dropped it.
  10. Does that include raw materials? So much stuff is made in China or have raw materials come from there it always comes to mind whenever shortages occur. As for HLJ, I'll try that BO order once the preorder is in (or maybe a week before it's in?). I've also noticed that private warehouse is now unlimited (is that really true). But I want to ship as soon as possible to avoid the xmas shopping season.
  11. So I wasn't imagining it then. I wonder if it's the recent lockdowns in China, and they couldn't get kits out faster? If there's less stuff to go around now I pity those who do lots of Xmas shopping, to deal with low supply and inflation. (Inflation has also been high here in the Philippines.) The gunpla selection in the local stores has also been dwindling (at least the dept. stores). Online, it depends.
  12. Is there a shortage of kits right now? A lot of items in HLJ seem to be backordered. I was looking for something to go with a planned preorder but the lack of choices is discouraging. I also checked on Amazon but I had a recent stressful experience where they mislabeled a shipment. Thankfully it was sorted out but I kind of don't want to order from them for a while.
  13. Is this the reason I can't see the latest posts from my followed topics anymore? EDIT: Looks like I have to re-follow then.
  14. Indeed Overlord's writing is way better, but it has way darker themes than Leadale that to me it looks like 2 different things. Most stories are formulaic anyway, it's just how it's executed that matters. Or maybe I just don't feel strongly about it? For example I get 'agitated' when I see something trying to copy the Macross formula (mecha + music). (That is why I don't like Macross II.)
  15. I don't get this high level of similarity. Sure they're both isekai, both MC are overpowered, they have NPCs they consider 'children' and then that's it. What the MCs actually do are worlds apart. I like both novels for what they are. 'Leadale' gets some undeserved criticism being compared to Overlord imo. Who cares if the structure of the story are the same, but they're different enough to be enjoyable. That said, Leadale anime does come off a bit generic. I think the LN is more enjoyable as it has more detail (lots of stuff cut in the anime), and as long as you don't expect high literature or the like.

    I missed it again lol
  17. At first I thought that's just a light topping lol. But I'd love to taste one.
  18. Maybe because it's not a humanoid type mecha. And that was a good decision on your part to wait. I was left hanging due to the delays and so I binge read the light novels. I am so spoiled with the future events. Also there are good battles (past this season) that would look awesome animated, praying for more seasons (should use the same crew making it of course). For this season it's a really big baddie mech they're fighting and that's why they're probably having issues animating it. Sakugan however has disappointed me after the first few episodes. The MCs annoying levels seem to go up not down, especially the dad character. The first ep was good though.
  19. Ranka looks more mature now, based on those drawings.
  20. So did you preorder it? How was PO day? I'm on the fence, Macross Delta isn't really my fave series after all.
  21. Not many people from here are watching the 86 anime? It's good, though plagued with production issues currently. I'm enjoying Komi-san wa, Comyushou desu, but official subs are awful. Faraway Paladin has a good source material, but animation isn't that great, just acceptable. At least it's not Kumo desu ga levels of bad 2D animation. Ousama Ranking has been the surprise of the season though, great story.
  22. I guess better busy than doing nothing. Other performers are probably not getting jobs due to COVID, especially in places that have lockdowns/restrictions. I think she's being smart by taking on new opportunities. But yeah, how does she sleep with all those stuff she's doing?
