Dear Diary, Tobidase Doubutsu No Mori

Awesome review of an Awesome Guide by an Awesome Blogger.. !

Non-Confidential Diaries of a Girl Gamer

Last night, a very special package arrived in the mail, and to my surprise, even fit in the mailbox. Toby was destined to keep my impatience at minimum by constantly reminding me this special package would not arrive probably until next month. Though his excitement was hidden in the wait of the delivery, mine was not, and it was definitely present in the arrival of a text from my mother who showed me the lime green package return address that had in big, bold letters: JAPAN.

It had arrived.

Review: Japanese ACNL guide – とびだせ どうぶつの森 デザインのある暮らし”Dezain no aru kurashi”

This is a book I recently picked up on an order from the shopping service provided by (along with a few magazines and toys which I’ll talk about another time) and it’s actually much more amazing than I’d originally thought!

I knew that the book would be about designing your village and remaking items to suit your house but the amount of detail is really quite awesome.

EDIT AS OF 30/01/2014 I appreciate that many people are unable to get a copy of this book, and I’m sorry to hear this. However, I had to pay quite a large amount to order my own copy and, whilst at first I didn’t mind taking photos for friendly people now and then, it’s getting quite out of hand now so I’m afraid that I won’t be responding to any more requests for specific pages. Sorry. I paid a lot for this book and it’s unfair to me to give the whole book for free. I hope you can appreciate this. Thank you for visiting. 🙂


Disney Magic Castle My Happy Life..

07-disney-magic-castle-my-happy-life-2Less than a month ’til it’s released in Japan — on August 1st! — and I cannot wait!

Is anyone else getting it?

I’m really undecided over whether I’m going to buy a physical copy or download! I’m not sure… I do kinda like having the boxes for my shelf!!

Hmm.. need to decide quickly!

Animal Crossing New Leaf Guide: Japanese vs English?!

So, I finally received my Prima Official Game Guide for AC: NL yesterday (despite pre-ordering, Amazon ran out of copies and I had to wait a week or so!) and the first thing that I noticed was how much smaller it was compared to my huge tome that is the Japanese guide…


Side by side


Despite the size difference, it really does make a nice change to be able to just.. read a guide about AC NL without needing to translate it first or look words up etc.. It’s not as detailed as I’d like — the Japanese guide is extremely, almost OTT detailed — but it’s certainly worth the £8.99 I paid for it via Amazon!

Magazines and Books July 2013.

A few things I’ve ordered from Japan using the amazing service from haven’t arrived yet but here’s a list of what’s coming!



Disney Fan Magazine Tokyo Disney Resort 30th Anniversary Special


So this year Tokyo Disney Resort is celebrating it’s 30th Anniversary! I was in Japan until literally a few days before the event started but I did get to see them setting up the castle and decorations! It seems pretty awesome. Anyway, this is a special edition of the “Disney Fan” magazine that I collect. It features all the different things people can see, do, eat and buy during this very special Happiness-filled year!
