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 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.
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.
