Surprise! Order from Japan!

Well, damn.  I totally forgot that I'd still got some things on order from HobbyLink Japan!  They have this crazy system ordering system, you see - you place an order for things, and when they have them in stop they will send them to you, but only then will they tell you the shipping costs.  On the plus side, I now have a Sanzenin Nagi pillowcase and a cushion to go with my Saber Lion cushion cover on the way.  On the minus side, this will set me back about £60, and I only have about £200 at the moment.  I should just about be able to make it to the end of term without going into debt, though, thanks to my weekly tutoring session with Derek.  Keep your fingers crossed for me!

In other news, Utawarerumono is, like, the best game ever.  It's highly addictive, damnit.  I don't need a gaming addiction right now!  If only the English patch had been released in 6 weeks time rather than now!  The story is both gripping and moving, and the gameplay is fun.  The music compliments the story perfectly.  It's a turn-based RPG combined with a visual novel.  It's also, to my surprise, an eroge.  Hmm, didn't see that one coming.  I think I must have been thinking of Gadget Trial as the not-an-eroge one.  I wish Gadget Trial (which I really need to play more of!) was an eroge, though :3

The number of Visual Novels I'm in the middle of just keeps on growing.  I'm now in the middle of One, Gadget Trial and Utawarerumono.  I've finished one route of both Fate/stay night and Wind.  I have several more that I just haven't started, or have only played a little of (Tsukihime, Bible Black).

Anyway, I'm very tired now, but I don't have time to sleep for the time being.  I need to get stuff done now, instead of messing around.  Gah :(
