Goodbye

This announcement has been coming for a long time. When I returned from Japan back in September of 2009 I lost half the will to keep with the blog, and that will was getting weaker and weaker until about a year ago, when I totally lost all of it.

I didn’t want to say it, and pretty much forced myself to keep with the blog, mostly as a token of gratitude to my followers, the people that I know in person and reads this blog from time to time and the people that keeps writting constructive comments... I’ve been trying to keep up to date this blog for quite a few months, lately I tried to increase the number of posts each month and even tried new things like doing the Mahou Tsukai no Yoru summary in "real time" but with no luck and forcing myself to do it just makes me loath it all the more.

Recently I got diagnosed a nervous breakdown. Now I'm reconsidering the priorities in my life and this blog is not in the top. I want to have one less pressure on my shoulders for now, one less stress so I can try and get myself back together once more.

So Soth's Blog is going on indefinite hiatus. I may return in a couple of months, a couple of years or perhaps I move to another chapter in my life and drop this blog for good, I don't know.

So as a goodbye I'm going to post all the stuff I received months ago and was unable to do a proper review:

1/6 Saber Extra by Clayz (sculpted by Miyagawa Takeshi), 1/6 Caster Extra by Phat (sculpted by iTANDi), 1/8 Minase Iori Ryugu Komachi Ver. by Wave (sculpted by Abira) and 1/6 Ayanami Rei Cross Ver. by Amie Grand (sculpted by Suzu)

Valkyria Chronicles 3 Extra Edition for PSP (not played),  Valkyria Chronicles 3 Complete Artworks (not opened to avoid spoilers), and the limited Black Label edition OVAs in Blu-ray (not even unwrapped).

Fate/complete material V Hollow material and Carnival Phantasm Official Guidebook

 THE iDOLM@STER Character Master, THE iDOLM@STER Platinum Album, THE iDOLM@STER DS Delicious Album, Marugoto iDOLM@STER For You! and THE iDOLM@STER Twins Precious Album Guidebook

Doujinshi from circles Nurumaya, King Revolver and Kurusugawa Pikumin Tei

 
TYPE-MOON manga: Shingetsutan Tsukihime volumes 7 to 10, Fate/stay night volume 17, All Around Type-Moon manga, the paperback version of Kara no Kyoukai Mirai Fukuin chapter and several postcards that are Tora no Ana store exclusives.


Well, it's all for now. I hope to see you guys as soon as utterly possible,

Soth

I'm really sad to hear this, as your blog was one of the very few I actually follow. However, if this blog isn't giving you happiness and is instead only stressing you out, it's probably for the best.

Good luck and be well!

I just happened to drop by this blog and found this post about your hiatus. Very unfortunate, but do remember that your figure collecting hobby might help you with your nervous breakdown. I don't know about you, but when I look at my figures I feel happy hehe.

Wish you the best!

Greetings.I just discovered this blog and you got some interesting stuff and reviews here.

I'm writing to ask in regards of a Takemura Sessyu doujin that you reviewed involving Makoto, Ryou and the rest of the iM@S cast. the title seems to be simply "X", me and some bros are very interested in a scan.

If you by any chance happen to see this message and have this doujin and are willing to help us please contact me at outside_the_wall@hotmail.com

Thanks.

PD: Según tu perfil, eres español, ayuda please a un copañero de habla hispana

Just started figure collecting this summer (recent trip to Japan + started working) and was having some troubles finding info about all those old Tsukihime figures and collectables. After some Google'ing around, I came across this blog. Read through your "TYPE-MOON and I" blog post, opened the spreadsheet, and was blown away. Being a huge Tsukihime/TYPE-MOON fan, all I can is this:

You are awesome ; )
