Let see, seeing my good friend Funktastic posting his collections on Destructoid, I have decided to post a blog on a game collection of mine based on Mushihimesama. (Of course he called me a f****** moron for buying this, but that won't stop me. ) Anyways because I like the first Mushihimesama quite alot, I have decided that no matter what, I must play the sequel. But when I heard its arcade only, I have forced myself to get a Candy Cab and brought the Arcade PCB board just to play the game. Also trying to collect much merchandise of this series as much as possible.
Brief History Lesson
Mushihimesama (literally , "Insect Princess") is an arcade shmup game made by Cave way back in 2003 and a sequel was followed in 2006 (Mushihimesama Futari). The series is quite popular overseas and carries a strong insect theme (Sorta like Darius with fishes).

I also got the Max Factory Reco Figurine preordered, but since its not out till June, the product isn't really on my hands. But this is what it looks like.

I am not exactly rich either, so I do not have an entire collection yet. But surely and slowly I will eventally collect every piece of Mushihimesama merchandise that exist on earth.
