Nendoroid Petit: Bakemonogatari Set #1

by 22:15
I confess! I only got this because of Senjougahara!
There, I said it. =)

After weeks of delays, many bitter thanks to Golden Week (where no one works for a week >_>), my local suppliers shipment had finally arrived, well into the 5th month. Had to squint to get a good look at the "puchi"s. It feels like a nendoroid, with all the accessories and stuff included, but in reality, still has the size of a petit. Either way, it feels weird. 

Though, I do applaud GSC for coming up with smaller set releases. It's a win-win for "most" of us. 
Collectors - cheaper than standard 12set/ procuring specific characters/ extra accesories
GSC - smaller scheduled releases/ profit more than standard 3 nendoroid petits

And I realized collecting all 3 sets would cost more than the standard 12 charac-in-a-box set. But with the extra stuff included, its a fair price I guess. But I still hate you, GSC =P

Simmoned Figures #3 - Nendoroid Petit Vocaloid #1 「ねんどろいどぷち ボーカロイド #01」

by 04:14

My last post kept on ranting about suspicious and near-perfect imitations that would dupe even the most avid collectors at first glance, which classifies them as the most dangerous out there.

But no worries for the imitations in this post. 
After looking at these, you'd want to chuck it back to the pirates and ask them to do a proper job of manufacturing a fake. 
One might have to question if these are even worth labeling as a "figure"...

The level of pirating for this set is so laughable, I'm sure only blind otakus of a certain ethnic *cough* would purchase them as GSC giggles at their phailed attempt of replication.

Compared to the previous counterfeit of Saber Lily, I'm quite astound by pathetic replication such a lovely series as pirates would give they're all to make near-perfect copies to lure customers in.
After looking at these images and comparing them to the real ones I currently have in my hands, I love Miku and GSC all over again for they're quality.

However, the following images may cause momentary blindness, rapid blinking, squinting, frowning and accelerated eye cancer.
You have been warned...

Threat Level : 2/5

Seiyuu Comparisons - Spring 2010 (#5)

by 04:18
My current expression as I realize how much I have to go before I finish P3 FES.
And that doesn't include the 121hours already spent on P4
But who cares, as I ready myself to further shorten my lifespan again, with P5 is in the works xD
So it's May, and we're almost reaching the half-way mark of Spring 2010 season. So far, the most promising shows are Arakawa, Tatami Galaxy, Giant Killing and K-ON!!

What? K-ON!! ain't a good enuf? It's just another series part of the moe-blob that's running around?
Well, fark you very much, and GTFO that way ---->

I'm part of the "Y" generation, and yes, I love music, as much as to sticking my earphones in my ears 24/7.
Despite how skeptical and critical of the blob, I'm making this show an exception =)
With the slice-of-sch-life scene, music and moe here and there, I'm a victim of my own words.
Mio is another reason for watching too, unlike some people who defected over to the Azunyan faction, which I'm part of as well xD

Anyways, here's #5 of May as I pluck a few more faces and plaster them onto this post. Quite tempted to put more comparisons, but then I'd run out of stuff to post of the coming 2 month. But I might as well add a couple more from Winter 2010 next time, so I'll leave that aside for now. Enjoy. 

Seiyuu Comparisons - Spring 2010 
<<<<< (#4)       (#6) >>>>>

[Fujiwara Keiji]
Kappa                                                                  Ali Al Saachez

Still playing that "bad-ass-I-dont-give-a-damn" character. Quite recognizable fortunately. But Kappa is really funny at times, unlike Saachez.

[Sugita Tomokazu]
Hoshi                                                                           Kyon

Oh Kyon, you're dream has come true; to be a star. Literally
Hoshi is really fun to watch with so many expressions, especially that confession box scene ^^

[Koyasu Takehito]
Sister/Brother                                                                Mu La Flaga

This veteran is still active, fortunately. His voice is very familiar to those who have watched the older animes, as he pops up in quite a lot of shows as sub-characters. Like "Kururu" in "Keroro Gunso" for example =D

Figures Ordered (Q2 - 2010)

by 17:00

I practically forgot about this post. Intended to make a quarterly post, instead of some blog highlighting what they pre-ordered the second the deposit has been paid. It's more effeciant and collective this way (and saves me from posting everytime due to my lazy attribute) 

We're barely entered May and I've already PO-ed some goodies which, I might add, are irresistible. Perhaps I'll post what I've ordered for Q1 instead as a summary. But whatever.

Been money managing my purchases, comparing a "must-get" to "have-to-get" buying impulses. Quite difficult as evil manufactures like GSC and MaxF continue to churn out hordes of irresistibly-cute figures any die-hard fan would love to acquire.

Nonetheless, we still fall prey and victim to their marketing strategies, continuously pounding the shit out of Mr. Wallet and his loyal men of bills and coins. So far, it has been a lopped, one-sided battle on my part as GSC, particularly, keeps sending out more enemies than I can keep up with Mr. Wallet and his disappearing merry men.
