Still catching up on the December talking meme, going off a prompt from melannen.

At some point when I was in school my family went on a trip — I think it was either Toronto (out of the country) or San Diego (opposite coast) — and we passed by this shop that was visibly full of anime merch. This was obviously not on Mom’s list of Improving Tourist Stops, but I took one look at that window and by golly we were going in.

Sure enough, the place was packed with obscure stuff. Floor to ceiling. I only had eyes for the Sailor Moon merch (this must’ve been pre-Hellsing, even), and it did not disappoint. Lots of imports in the original Japanese packaging, including dolls that were actually on-model, and notebooks/stickers going all the way up to the Starlights, and all kinds of stuff.

Most of it I held onto from then all the way up until six months ago, when I did that big pre-move giveaway.

Here’s the one thing I kept:

Lil’ Sailor Moon coin bank! With the pose from the end of her SMR transformation — and the DiC logo, so, not an import? Actual North-America-licensed merchandise that you’d think I would’ve been able to purchase anywhere in the US?

But I never saw anything like it in the various local nerd stores back home, before or since. So I’m glad I snagged it when I did.

Maybe one of these days I’ll even actually use it for coins.
