Recently, we made a rather unexpected trip to New York while we were there we finally the opportunity to visit AnimeCastle‘s physical store location. I am still mourning the loss of Animadness, which had been my somewhat local source of anime figures so I was pretty excited to visit a shop that specialized in anime again. I was fairly impressed with Animecastle’s store, they had a fair selection of figures unfortunately not many nendoroids which tend to be my favorites these days.
I ended up buying various merchandise from Puella Magi Madoka Magica plus the first two volumes of it’s manga. I also bought the special edition of the “Ground Control to Electric Girl” (Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko) tv series as well as this cute CC figure from Code Geass.

I rather liked the Code Geass series, I was rather disappointed there were not more figures particularly of CC from it. This is my first Chibi Arts figure, I couldn’t resist her when I saw her even though she doesn’t even come with standing legs. I don’t like the Chibi Arts as much as nendoroids but I am still quite pleased with this figure.
I love the variety of expressions on the faces that CC comes with.
*nomnomnomnomnom* yummy pizza!
