When I first saw this figure on the Internet a couple of months ago, I wished that I could get it.

Since there are so much Suzumiya Haruhi news recently, I might as well add some myself. First, there’ the Bubba’s Nagato Yuki, which I also covered earlier.

*Whew* now that that’s out of my system, everyone know of my tsundere-nekomimi-vamp-gothloli-imouto fetish. j/k
After buying my first figure, Kotobukiya’s Shana melon-pan ver., I opened myself to a whole new world of pain (for my wallet, that is). I just purchased my second and third figures, the third more of an “it’s only $99 HKD, so why not buy it” purchase. The on sale figure is Yamato’s Ohno Kanako cosplaying as Kasumi from Kujibiki Unbalance.
