Figures are bitches

Back in October/November I decided I wanted to get into anime figures. I did a lot of looking around at them to see which ones I wanted to get. The thing I found most obvious was Yunocchi, because she is pretty much my favorite anime gal ever, however I found out she was sold out, and my friend who is far more experienced in these maters told me that there was little chance there’d ever be restock. Taking this to heart, I decided that if I really wanted a figure I would preorder it, therefor assuring my stock and if I decided it was a stupid idea I could cancel the order. So I preordered the soon to be released Kino figure which was slated for January 31. Now, for a good while I didn’t need to worry about it, but once January hit I had to carefully plot out my expenditures to make sure I’d have enough when the figure was released. At the time I had also preordered the Hatsune Miku nendoroid, but cancelled it halfway trough January. I  was uber looking forward to Kino still, though. However, near the end of January, I found out she got pushed back to February 15th. Now, I was a bit irked because it meant I’d been saving money I could have been spending, but I was glad that I would be able to spend it. So now the 15th was drawing near and I had just enough money ready. Literally, on the fucking 14th, they announced it would be pushed back again to the end of February. Now, I’m a very patient person, but it really fucks me up when I plan my whole goddamn allowance around something, stopping myself from buying things I want in anticipation only for it to be pushed back. I also have a Horo figure on preorder, though only because I think she will be a great character, I haven’t exactly decided if I will get it, but my friend was saying how it was likely she’d end up getting pushed back. He said ‘your prolly better off just spending your money’. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not completely whining, because now I can buy the Noein boxset on sale and get the next volume of Shadow Star, I just wish they wouldn’t fuck with me like that.  I am very anal about organizing my money, and it just throws me off-balance.
