Mark Of The Nyanpire!

Halloween is less than 3 months away so I've been saving some posts for the annual "Countdown to Halloween" celebration come this October. This can't wait though, it's just too darned cute! I hadn't really noticed this character before but it's been showing its fur in all the UFO Catcher bins of late and I am intrigued. I have been incredibly unlucky in winning of late, so I haven't tried my hand at capturing this Vampire Bat Cat. Unlike this guy...



A cat's meow in Japanese is   ニャーニャー(nyaa-nyaa)or  ニャンニャン(nyan-nyan) so a pun of にゃん+ぱいあ (NYAN+pire) is right up my alley.


Here is the origin story of our Feline-bloodsucker and a list of some of her Friends. The only グッズ (goods) I have acquired to date is a 下敷き (shita-jiki a plastic mat you put under a page to make writing easier) and I picked up a couple of Capsules. Alas, I didn't fare too well for I only got the lame
ニャテンシ (Nya-tenshi or Meow-Angel) which is an white Cherubic Kitten.
 

I also got a less lame but still not so cool Sleepy Nyanpire whose catchphrase is うるうるうる (u-ru-u-ru-u-ru which is an onomatopoeic zzz-snore).


The one I was hoping to snag was the Date Cat-e Masamune-esque,
伊達まさむにゃor Masamunya.

Okay, those really are the coolest things ever! Even with the pink.

Awesome. Thanks for sharing.

The only pink is in the background, the rest is pure Goth!
