Good Smile Company Kaori Miyazono

Snapshots: Kaori Miyazono by Good Smile Company

I was feeling the itch to do a quick figure shoot today, and it felt like Good Smile Company’s Kaori Miyazono would be fitting for springtime. Although we just had snow here like two days ago so…

Nendoroid Christmas Party

Nendoroid Christmas party!

Merry Christmas to all you figure collectors out there! Christmas seems like a particularly Nendoroid-ish holiday, so I decided to do a special photo shoot with mine.

Wave Beach Queen Misaka Mikoto

Snapshots: Hitting the beach

Summer so far has mostly consisted of rain and overcast skies for me :/ But I did get one sunny day over the weekend, so I took some figures to the beach. I had some ideas for some beach shots, but unfortunately didn’t prepare well at all.

Nendoroid Sakura Miku and Mayoi Hachikuji

Snapshot: Late night gaming

You’ve seen the tiny Shinobu figure I got, but I have a tiny Hachikuji too! Nendoroids aren’t super tiny but they’re small enough to make a 3DS look like a big screen TV. Looks like they’re having some fun with the Mii creator…

Improving a gloomy day with the power of friendship

Since it’s autumn, my favorite season, I decided to go do an outdoors photo shoot. Unfortunately, what started out as a great day quickly turned into a gross and cloudy day. Not to worry! My subjects are never brought down by the weather, no matter how cloudy, windy, cold, and generally shitty.

ACen 2014 figures

Anime Central 2014: figure and toy highlights

ACen isn’t a big event for figure manufacturers, which is understandable because it takes place in Chicago and apparently nobody likes traveling to Chicago. Last year, Good Smile Company brought along some prototypes and recent reveals from Japan (mostly Winter Wonder Festival reveals if I recall). This year, GSC did show up again but didn’t have any new figures – most of their showcase had been released already. So in terms of news coverage, there wasn’t much to do – still I found a few interesting items here and there.

Suruga Kanbaru by Good Smile Company

Figure Review: Suruga Kanbaru by Good Smile Company

Here’s the review in the form of an equation: Good Smile Company + Bakemonogatari = great success. If you haven’t seen Bakemonogatari, you really should. It’ll make you savvy to the fact that a Japanese person’s concept of Ghostbusters is actually pretty awesome. From that series we get the memorable Suruga Kanbaru, a masochistic bisexual boys-love enthusiast who (and this is for the It’s Always Sunny crowd) could easily be a power bottom.
