A couple more T-shirts, both for the Mars Sample Return mission.  Couldn't decide on the color so I got both! 

When there's a choice of two and you can't decide which to get, buying both is a good plan because if you only buy one a bit later on you'll wish you'd got the other one, by which time it will be out of stock and no longer available.

A few things I got recently. A Kenshin anime plushie, the Peacemaker Kurogane box set on DVD and a few Inuyasha phone cases. The Kagome phone case matches my best friends, who has the Inuyasha one, and when you put them together it makes a heart 🥰

Do you do calligraphy with these?

It depends on the width of the nib. A few of my pens have 1.1mm "stub" nibs, and those produce broader strokes on paper. They could certainly be used for calligraphy. This is a quote from Aristotle I wrote out a little while back, as an example with a stub nib:

I'm not really a calligrapher, but I really wanted to revisit and use cursive whenever I write, not just when I'm signing my name on a document. Most of the pens I have are medium or fine nib, which are more suited to everyday writing. The pen pictured above has a fine nib, so the lines will be a bit thinner than they are in the quote here.

Ooo that's really pretty handwriting tbh. I've always wanted to write with one of these things because they look like they write so pretty lol I would probably accidentally stab myself with it though considering how accident prone I am LOL 🤭 I think I might actually have one of these that is Harry Potter themed somewhere but I'm not sure ~

Thank you! It's not as smooth as I'd like, but it's better than my print handwriting. ^^ And nah, these pens are quite safe. The nibs aren't as sharp as they look. You should totally get one! I can't recommend them highly enough. xD If you ever find that HP pen, I'd like to see it. :)

Well that's good, maybe I wouldn't die in a weird way after all  ~ I'm honestly not even sure it is a one, I think it is, but I haven't looked at it like a year so I don't even remember but for some reason I feel like it was lol

I'm always impressed with people who can write beautifully, my handwriting is so bad sometimes even I can't read it!

I had to do a fair amount of practicing to get my handwriting back to that point, but I know exactly what you mean here. My handwriting is terrible when I have to scribble something down in a hurry.

Thanks ^^ I want the MItsuki plushie but Boruto was all I could find for sale for now.

They're both so adorable~ X3

I bet you'll be able to get the Mitsuki plushie when it's on sale. It seems like everything goes on sale sooner or later. ^^

I hope so, the problem is that I just can't find the specific one I want for sale anywhere right now. I did find a Mitsuki acrylic stand tonight though that I bought so I guess that'll have to do for now.

I didn't know they made different ones for a character. I just thought they made one design for each character. Is the Mitsuki plushie new? Like, was it released recently? I'm glad you still got a Mitsuki merch though. After reading about him when I looked him up, I can see why he's such a likable character. ^^

There are multiple different ones lol I've no idea when it was released though I just saw a specific one I wanted but I can't find that one for sale anywhere 😭 I got a Mitsuki standee today though, I'll post a pic of it later.

Not actually acquired yet, but

Took long enough for a physical release of one of CR’s standout exclusive titles. $85.48 with my CR subscriber discount certainly ain’t cheap, but was actually expecting it to be more given the format

Oooooooooooooooo Interesting!! Thanks for pointing this release out.  And what's even better is that there's going to be a UK release. I really liked this series, but the £50 pre-order price is a bit steep, but then again there's a lot in the package.

I think this is going to be one of those times when I'll buy something and regret it when I get my credit card bill, but I'll regret it even more if I don't take advantage of the pre-order price.
