Aren’t I Beautiful?

Posted in anime, figures, Kuroshitsuji, personal, preview, shota, Square Enix with tags , , , , , on July 24, 2010 by ampzr

Well I didn’t mean to be gone for as long as I have been. Not that it really matters, but I’ve been ill and we’ve been trying to figure out what the hell is wrong. I get to go to a specialist next week. Oh goodie! For now though I should be fine and able to keep posting! So lets get to something awesome…

This beautiful figure is available for pre-order! I ordered mine over at AmiAmi for ¥7,420. At the time of writing this about $85. Don’t forget that price is without shipping. It’ll be more if you decide to get him.  Here’s a link directly to the figure…Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) Static Arts Ciel Komadori Complete Figure[Square Enix]

Here are some more pictures. I just think the sculpting, painting, and design look great! Plus it’s Ciel in a dress. What’s not to love?

Al Azif, Another Blood Figure

Posted in figures, loli, Orchid Seed, review with tags , , , , , , on July 19, 2010 by ampzr

Today I got in my Al Azif, Another Blood figure. I managed to get them used at MyFigureCollection.net.

These figures are absolutely beautiful. They’ve been sculpted with extreme detail and the paint job is very nice. With Another Blood’s outfit all of the wavy parts are made out of a clearer plastic which adds a nice effect. Like it’s all different material. Al Azif and Another Blood are two separate figures and you might be able to take them apart but I didn’t really try. I have to say overall I’m very pleased with this purchase and I’m thankful someone was willing to part with them when they did.

Figure Review: Nia Teppelin – Wave & Sega

Posted in anime, figures, loli, review, Sega, WAVE with tags , , , , , , , , on July 14, 2010 by ampzr

Along with receiving Hijikata Toshiro. I also got two Nia figures in today. Both the Wave short hair beach figure and the EX Sega figure. First we’ll talk about the Sega EX figure. (Yes I do have a lady-crush on Nia! She’s too cute!)

I have all the Sega Gurren Lagann sets. I just got the first set in today though. Similar to the Kuroshitsuji Sega sets the first Gurren Lagann set isn’t as well made as the later ones. Not to say it’s not well made but later they take more care in color details. It probably wouldn’t have hurt to have a different colored base considering both her and Yoko have red bottomed shoes. Her outfit is very well made. Nice pleats and there are even the little holes in the back. Also all the jewels stick out and are colored.

Here are all the Sega Nias together.

As I said the other figure I got in today was the short hair version of swimsuit Nia by Wave. She’s very cute and the details are very nice. I love the beach ball. It actually has seems like a beach ball and is see-through. She’s even using one hand to fiddle with her swimsuit. I like the Sega swimsuit design better than this one is still cute. The flower also has very nice details.

The Sega and Wave beach Nias together.

And another!

Yes, I did receive the EX Yoko today too but I don’t plan on keeping her. I didn’t open the box because of this. So no review.

Figure Review: Hijikata Toshirou – MegaHouse

Posted in anime, figures, I like hot dudes, MegaHouse, review with tags , , , , , on July 14, 2010 by ampzr

Today in the mail I received Hijikata Toshirou from Gintama. He’s from the GEM series by MegaHouse which also includes Sakata Gintoki and soon Okita Sougo.

I have to say this figure is spectacular. The details are great. Especially on the sword handle. I’m not sure what kind of paint is used but it has a very nice effect that gives some great shadows and highlights. Hijikata comes with few accessories which include a mayonnaise bottle and a mayonnaise bottle that is being squeezed out onto a bow of rice. The bowl even has it’s own stand which I find rather cute.

One thing to watch out for is that the plastic used to make the mayonnaise stream is a flexible plastic. If care is not taken I could see it breaking.

If you like Gintama then I recommend this figure for you. Even if you like to own male figures I recommend this figure for you. He’s still available for purchase on many figure sites. Including beNippon: Toushiro Hijikata.

Also if anyone has any idea of what is going on on that flap I’d be very grateful. I want golden mayonnaise…

Hentai, Yaoi, and Yuri Oh My!

Posted in anime, comics, doujin, figures, good smile company, hentai, manga, Nendoroid, review, sales, Websites, yaoi with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 10, 2010 by ampzr

Actually I don’t know if this site has yuri but they seem to have everything else so I don’t see why they wouldn’t.
Mandarake
This site is another awesome one that has hard to find figures for good prices. The figures may be new or used but it’ll say in the item title. Although this part of the site claims to be in english most product titles are not. So all the menus and the check out process are in english but you’re gonna have to look at every picture to see if it’s a figure your looking for. Most product pictures aren’t the official pictures either. They’re pictures of the actual figures in their boxes that Mandarake has. Considering the deals you get though it doesn’t really bother me.
I was hesidant to use this site at first because I thought some deals seems to good to be true but the site I’m always promoting My Figure Collection has tons of user reviews in their forums. I bought the Haruhi Figma SP001 from them for about $50 with one day shipping. (She’s usually around $100 or more on ebay)

She came with her box and all the pieces but the PS2 video game was not included. Honestly I didn’t care about the video game I just wanted the figma so I was happy.

They also carry doujins there. They have both hentai and yaoi doujins and you can get either new or used. Just try to have more self control than me…I just spent $111 on Durarara yaoi doujins. Also most of the doujins have preview pages which is nice and for the yaoi ones they list seme/uke in the usual seme x uke style. (ex. Shizuo x Izaya)

The last note I’ll make is to pay attention to where your buying your items from. Mandarake is a series of stores in Japan and if you’re not careful your order will have to ship from multiple places. They don’t ship things to a different store to ship it to you in one bath. So you might have to pay shipping on multiple items. They do give you many reminders to check your cart for that issue though.

Have fun shopping!

Highschool of The Dead: Anime and Zombies Done Right

Posted in anime, figures, horror, review, supernatural with tags , , , , , , on July 10, 2010 by ampzr

Well, I’m a little behind the times. Actually quite a bit behind consider yesterday I used to finish two anime series that ended in early ’09 yesterday. Today I decided to watch the first episode of Highschool of the Dead though. Now I’m sure everyone’s already heard great things about this series but here it goes again.

First off I thought the animation was great! And yes there is tons of “fan service” with bouncing boobs and panty shots. I might vary from other girls in the fact that that doesn’t bother me. For some reason I especially like it in this show because it’s kind of funny in contrast to all the violence happening with the fan-service.

Also as you’ve probably heard there are many cliched ideas and scenes in the first episode but they pull it off so well it doesn’t even matter.

So far I love the main male character. I can’t tell his personality exactly but he doesn’t seem to be your “hero” hero type. Not to say he’s a coward just a angry highschooler with some problems. From the end of the episode it doesn’t even seem like he minds that he’s kind of gotten the girl he’s liked since childhood because he threatened to leave her alone after smashing in her zombie boyfriends brains. What a dick but we love it. Otherwise people wouldn’t like Death Note or Code Geass. Maybe that’s mostly girls who like those characters though because my male friends are always going on about how they hate those characters. We don’t really get introduced to the rest of the main cast yet but it does appear they all show up in one small clip or another.

*Had to come back and add that there’s even a Muse-esque song used toward the end of the episode. Think 28 weeks later. Or any recent trailer lately for that matter. Even Day & Knight used a Muse song…*

The only thing I have left to say is go watch it if you haven’t and I hope it keeps being great! Also any guys out there want to tell me if they like asshole main male charters?

I feel like I should buy figures from this show now…
