~*~ Chi's Sweet Love ~*~
It seems that there are no posts in this community. That's quite sad! :(
I've been hooked on Chi's Sweet Home (called Sweet House Cat here in Hong Kong) for a while, ever since my boyfriend and I discovered volume three in the comic shop. Volume four was released not too long ago, and so I started looking for Chi communities on LJ. (Before long, I'll probably also be buying Morning from the import shop so I can get my Chiiii fix!)
Is it popular elsewhere? I've not found many sites mentioning it, so I assume that it isn't very well known. The Chi toys (phone straps, etc.) have only recently begun to be sold here, too (I've a set of the phone charms on my computer at work!), but not everywhere like the popular ones. Whenever I see them being sold, it makes me happy, much like the character Chi itself!
I'm afraid Chi's Sweet Home is virtually unknown here in the Western anime/manga fan community. There's only one group scanlating it, and they're quite slow. They've recently released the last few chapters of volume 2.
I've never seen merchandise for the series; not in general Japanese stores I've been to, not at anime conventions. But I've glimpsed it on eBay, and I may someday buy from there. :)
I'm glad to see that there are more people who like this series, though!
If you'd like, I could go check and see if the shop I visited still has the Chi sets and, if they do, buy them and ship them. IIRC, it was about US$10/set. With shipping it'd be a bit more -- I'd have to check. I'll try to find a picture of them -- I know that I took one from when the set was sold individually for a crazy high price (twice what one would pay at a capsule machine!) at a random mall shop.
I know a while back there was a guy selling them for, IIRC, $3 or $4 per capsule toy on eBay. So I think I'll keep an eye out there (and check double the next time I visit the nearby Japanese superstore). But it's very kind of you to offer. :)
I grabbed them from my second set that I've not found space for at home (I have two, plus some that I originally bought from the capsule machine (^^;...), found the picture from the mall, and uploaded them here
Also, on ebay there's a guy from here selling stuff that I've not seen elsewhere, including a super cute keychain (I just ordered one, yay~~). I feel like such a consumer whore right now, but it's seldom that I get excited about a series like this. Between this and my refound love, Hikosen Cara
, I've bought so many cat products these past few weeks.
Hi!I love chi!I've read till number 3 so far..But I want to order number 4 as soon as possible...;__;too sad there are so few people who know about it.
