March proved to be a slow month on the review front. I have been experimenting with different lighting setups and backgrounds for my upcoming (GSC) Saber Lily review over the course of the month, but I couldn’t find a setup I liked in time to post a review.
Watching Spice & Wolf for the first time put me in the mood for a Horo figure, so I went off on an unplanned shopping venture and came back with a 1/6 scale specimen from Volks. The timing was very fortuitous in that Tokyo Hunter put one of these figures on eBay the next day after I had decided that Volks’ Horo was the one for me. I plan to review Horo after Saber, so look for a review in either April or May.
Horo wasn’t my only impulse buy this month. I also picked up Good Smile Company’s 1/8 scale Sawachika Eri figure from 888 Anime on the Amazon.com Marketplace. The price was low enough ($33 shipped) that I was concerned that I might be getting a bootleg, but close inspection of the product I received has me convinced that it’s legit. I’m definitely a fan of the School Rumble heroine, but this purchase was more about finding a bargain than anything else.
Finally, MegaHouse’s Kasugano Sora arrived mid-month from Robert’s Anime Corner Store. I haven’t gotten around to unboxing her yet, so I can’t post any early impressions.

Did you take that photo? What did you use for the background? You and your photos have created a monster!
Yes, the photo is mine.
The background is the “Northern Lights” backdrop from the EZcube folks (http://www.ezcube.com/backgrounds.html). I originally thought the neutral grayish tones would prove to be versatile, but I’ve come to dislike the background for the amount of pink it has, which I feel really limits its potential uses. They do sell backdrops in other colors, of course.
