Take a look at Buurin's guestbook!
I just posted synopsis for episode 21. Chinese version coming soon.
Here is how to order the Tonde Buurin DVD boxes from Amazon Japan without Japanese knowledge, by popular demand...
Go to www.amazon.co.jp, click "In English", then search for these Amazon item codes. Once there, add them to your shopping cart and off you go!
Box 1: B000068WKI
Let me remind you once again that these are region 2 discs. You know what you need to get.
The same eBay seller that brought us the 9" and 14" Buurin plushes now also have Buurin purse and Buurin backpack for bidding. I can't stop laughing when I see them. They're so cute.
I bid on one of those 14" Buurin plush and have received it. The tag says those are made in Shanghai. I didn't know they had Buurin in China as well even though I know pretty well many of these plushes are made in PRC.
* Buurin plush up for bid!
There's an auction on eBay for a 9" flying Buurin plush, and a 14" standing Buurin plush. These are Taiwan releases made by Bandai but licensed by TVB the Hong Kongers. (......) I won't be posting links due to eBay's volatile nature. Search there for "Buurin."
* Lego, this is Buurin; Buurin, this is Lego...
Renewing my interest in 1000-pieces-plus, super complicated Lego Technic sets, I recently bought the 8431 crane truck, a re-issue of 8460, considered one of the best Technic sets ever released.
I then had the thought of putting my two interests together, and the result is these two pictures:
This Buurin is the Banpresto flying Buurin UFO catcher doll.
Next time I'll see if I can build a Ton-chan with all the yellow bricks I have...
After 6 long years, I finally got my hands on the Tonde Buurin Bu no 1 CD!
Added Buurin cosplay at Anime North 2002 to Buurin Sightings. Should have done that 6 months ago but here it is.
Get the Naisho video for your Tonde Buurin dose of christmas spirit.
Also updated the Buying Buurin information to include the recently released DVD box sets.
I have remade the three OP/ED clips in the multimedia gallery from the much better DVD source and, with that, Keith's Tonde Buurin Page now carries a 100% MPEG-1 video collection. Check them out!
I got my real, nice Tonde Buurin DVD box 3 right in front of me. Disc 13 packs a lot of surprises. Check out its special features:
This is an absolute must have, this and a region free DVD player. Makes for the perfect Christmas gift for the Buurin addict.
Episode 12 storyline now online, English and Chinese.
Chinese storyline for episode 8 now online.
According to the shrinkwrap label, this is available only for a limited time (until July 2003), so get yours fast!
DVD box 2 is now available for pre-order at CDJapan. Remember to get a region-free DVD player too.
I found this information at the Nippon Animation site when investigating a broken link:
No matter how much I hate DVD, this is still super! Still plenty of time to get a region free DVD player or make your DVD-ROM region free, I suppose.
Boy, what a jackpot I've hit upon after a casual Google search after months of quiescence!
I found the following scattered around the web, and posted them here to make it easier for you all:
The list goes on and on...
I have finally gotten around to setup a new guestbook for Keith's Tonde Buurin Page using the new Geocities facility. Since I can't really change how it looks to match other parts of this site, I never considered a long term solution. And with Tonde Buurin Central coming up which will carry its own guestbook anyway, I'll just link to the new guestbook from the old guestbook page.
I have also migrated this site to the new Webring as it got spinned off of Yahoo. They admitted themselves that things are flaky at the moment so I'm not too concerned.
I have added some Buurin-related sightings on the web, and sneaked in some revisions throughout the site.
In other news, Tonde Buurin Central, the prettier and cuter (?) successor to Keith's Tonde Buurin Page, is now under development! More news as the development progresses.
In yet some other news, Webring is now separated (again) from Yahoo. Hope this give us a better time without the weight of Yahoo behind it...
The recent closing of Xoom/NBCi broke quite a few download links, especially the movies. They have all been fixed.
There is another rerun of Tonde Buurin in Hong Kong again, 3:40pm Monday to Friday starting July 5 on TVB Jade channel. Better not miss it this time!
Let me paraphrase an ad I have seen recently: I hate Yahoo! I hate them with a passion!
I ought to do a little update after like another 3 months of non-activity. These days my efforts will be on completing the episode stuff because they are like, um, very long overdue.
Now, some bad news for the mailing list. With @Home seemingly putting up firewalls blocking people connecting to its users, I will have to find a way to make things work before traffic will go through smoothly again, hence the hiatus on the list as well. Oh well, the list never got any traffic anyways. :(
I lost two more satellites in one day! Argh!!! Now I have to find a way to house all my 45 megabytes of rich contents.
