Some random stuff

A reader just informed me that this year's SaiMoe winner is Railgun, Misaka Mikoto Onee-sama.

I just noticed a couple of days ago that Railgun's Saten-san has the same seiyuu as AsoIku's Eris -- and I sure didn't suspect. The voices don't sound at all alike to me.

Anyone interested in Russian guns? James says they're a bargain. And they aren't necessarily garbage, either.

1 I thought that now that I live in America, I want something American. But I have an M-59 Mosin, that I got for $50. It's a cut-down on a 1942 war-time action, so it has no collector's value.

2 Just got my own Mosin-Nagant. Still haven't had the chance to go try it out, though. Cleaned a small lake of Cosmoline out of it over Thanksgiving. Hopefully I'll get a chance to take it out this weekend. Dad filled up the ammo panniers...

3 I have all accessories: sling with dog collars, oiler, cleaning kit, ammo poaches. No bayonet.

You know what James neglected to include? IZh shotguns. Their O-U models were quite on the level of workmanship even internationally. I think those were one of the few things Soviets could export without enormous discounts.

4 This might be a stupid question. . . but is Misaka *really* "moe"?

5 I don't think so. But it really depends on what you mean by it, and I think it's transformed from its original meaning to instead be "cute and popular".

6 Pete and Avatar, you should be leaving those comments on his post, not on mine.

7 I shouldn't have left the comments open on this post. Closed now.
