Do you know what I got in the mail today? I’ll give you a hint…the picture for this post is the hint. *wink*
Oh wait, excuse me, “Angeru Wink!” *wink & hearts*
Yeah, I got my Eru keychain today. So happy~! I want to sing an Eru song~! Lalalala~! Eru kawaii~! Lalalala~!
And for those unaware, Eru is the cutest chara (ever) in Shugo Chara, she’s Utau’s neglected second chara (the neglect just make me love Eru more because I want to cuddle her).
Eru cost me $6.50 including shipping. I think it’s the least I’ve ever had to spend on something from Japan before. But the person who I got it from doesn’t really do it for profit. She’s just helping people get these things from Japan and doesn’t charge much more than the price it actually costs her. Just a little extra to pay for the trouble and then the shipping.
If I bought Eru on ebay, she probably would have cost me $12.00 the way everyone jacks up their prices on there. So I am incredibly thankful to stormfaerie and her wonderful shop of wonderfulness on livejournal.
Now then…let’s move onto the Eru love~!
(First of all, apologies for some of the blurry pictures, my mom’s camera was being picky)
Every year I get an early birthday present, and this year Eru is it. Eru in all her cute angel glory was just too much to ignore. And in order to get her, I had to use my parents credit card (just a couple more weeks for me…) so it made sense. Otherwise I’d just owe them more money.
I forget what the actual size is. I think Eru’s about 5cm tall (1.5 inches), her width…is just whatever matches her height I guess. I mean, she’s so adorably chibi-proportionate just like she is in the anime and manga.
And the pose they have her in is the cute, classic, good Eru praying and/or lecturing. Since it’s Eru, I think she’s lecturing~!
I was actually really surprised about how well-designed and made Eru seemed to be…especially considering how small she is. There were some paint overlaps, but that happens with full-size figures. Eru is only 5cm tall and she’s pretty well-detailed. As detailed as a chara can be anyway. Her face especially looks cute.
And it comes with Eru’s cute little egg on the chain too. Eru’s egg is my favorite design. So simple and pretty. Now I really want those cute little chara action figures I mentioned before (they’re at the left in the picture). Because now I want Eru’s egg! And more Eru too. More Eru is always good.
I didn’t know what to do with the keychain once I got it. I was thinking of using it on my keys, but if I lost Eru or if she got damaged I’d be all emo for the rest of my life (well, for a while anyway). So for now she’s sitting on my bulletin board with my three Tsubasa keychains that I don’t know what to do with (Maybe one of them can be for my keys instead now).
But Eru-run is so far away from my desk when she’s up there, so I’m looking for a better place to put her. Preferrably, I’d like to find a way to have her hanging out on my desk so I can at least poke her whenever she’s being cute. They really should make a plushie though. All of Amu’s three main charas get plushies…so I want Eru.
Well…so far Eru is my favorite Shugo Chara related merchandise that I’ve gotten. I have the two posters, the orange pouch, the amulet tarot, and the two little towels. Those are all mainly just furoku, so they aren’t too impressive.
But I have the Humpty Lock too (that comes with the eggs and the cute little Ran, Miki, and Su) which cost me $30.00 or something. And cute little $6.50 Eru is still my favorite. Because she’s just so cute~! I love her~!
And it’s really about time that I got something Eru-related…especially since I still can’t find Eru’s tarot card (nooo!).
Now…be jealous of me! Unless you have Eru too! Then we can giggle together over how cute Eru is.
