Third on my list of cancellations, it’s Serizawa Fumio by Megahouse. Same as the first two, I don’t dislike her, I just don’t think she’s worth my dime in the end.
With the strengthening Japanese Yen I’m having to reconsider certain items on my pre-order list, not because of cost but because of worth. Serizawa here has become almost a $70 CAD item at AmiAmi’s ¥5,430 price point. $70 CAD for an item I deem to have a worth of <$60 CAD no longer makes her worth my hard earned cash. Though I will admit when I pre-ordered her she was priced in around the $65 CAD range, so what’s another $5 right? Well one could use that argument to talk themselves up to any cost, a line must be drawn somewhere.
It is my hope however that Ms Serizawa here ends up in the bargin bin where I may be more willing to part with the smaller sum of money. In the 3 months that have passed since she’s been available for pre-order my opinion on her has wavered quite a bit but never below the ‘I’d like to have’ range. However recently Alter’s Sanya V. Litvyak was restocked in various retailers and as such I opted to switch out Fumio for Sanya. Sure Alter’s Sanya isn’t as in your face as Kotos, and that pains me a little but she does look superior in quality.
Swapping what I imagine to be a loud tsundere with a quiet singer, bit of a change I’ll say. Here’s hoping that in the future I’ll be able to glance over at Ms Serizawa’s bum at a cheaper cost.
