Yep, she is very excited to start working as a real alchemist.

Back in 2012 when I regained interest in Japanese RPGs, I decided to get a copy of Atelier Totori Plus (in Japanese) and Atelier Meruru.

Thoughts About Collecting Anime Merchandise

Thoughts About Collecting Anime Merchandise

Artist: mira (hachikurooo)

Just a few weeks ago, Froggykun shared some interesting thoughts about figures, which got me thinking why many fans tend to buy a lot of merchandise?
