Japanese Fan Video Fun Time – Durarara

Posted in anime, anime music videos, doujin, I like hot dudes, manga, music, videos, wacky, yaoi with tags , , , , , , on July 11, 2010 by ampzr

Alright lets start this out with the obvious fact that I didn’t make any of these. There are tons of fan made videos for tons of animes out there. Usually they start out on Nico Nico Douga and end up migrating to Youtube. Today I’ll show you some of the Durarara ones I really like. We’ll have some serious and some silly. Here we go!

It’s Pocky time ladies and gentlemen!

Izaya loves Shizuo?

Time to rock out with all our characters!

Shizuo & Izaya shall sing to you

Durarara Gourmet Race –
if you don’t love this video I’ll have to go cry in a corner and wonder what the world is coming to

Let Izaya serenade you

Well there are just a few. You can literally spend hours searching youtube for more if you so desire. After just now spending said hours to compile these videos I leave you now to go watch some anime for the night. Also I leave you with one more video…

Izaya Caramelldansen (come on with how popular these videos are did you really expect to only get one?)

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!

Revisiting a Little Old Buissness

Posted in anime, figures, manga, personal, Websites with tags , , , , on July 6, 2010 by ampzr

I’ve talked about this site before but it’s always worth another mention. If you’re into collecting anime, manga, and video game merchandise go to this site!

My Figure Collection

The site has gone through a lot of changes since the last time I talked about it. Not only can you keep track of your figures but also miscellaneous merchandise like dakimakuras, cups, and other random goods. My figure collection is a great place to keep track of your inventory, orders, and have a wishlist. They have contests to win figures and a great community. Also there’s a sales page where users sell their figures. You can find some older figures for sale this way which is nice. The search engine has also been improved. Have fun & send me a friend invite if you join! My user name is Ampzr.

What do you Figure?

Posted in anime, figures, I like hot dudes, manga, Websites with tags , , , , , , on April 8, 2010 by ampzr

I don’t know how many people out there are into figure collecting. I am one of those people though. If you happen to collect anime figures and don’t know about this site yet, go!!

My Figure Collection

The site is only for anime/manga figures, but it’s a great place to keep track of your inventory, orders, and have a wishlist. They have contests to win figures and a great community. At first it took my a little bit of work to figure out how to search for my figures, but once you get the hang of it it’s easy. Have fun & send me a friend invite if you join!

How many times can I really fall?

Posted in manga on May 30, 2009 by ampzr

How many times can one read a Alice in Wonderland manga? Apparently a lot because I can’t count how many I’ve actually read. However Heart no Kuni no Alice is wonderful! The story of Alice is revamped and makes reading it refreshing. Often times the stories are to similar and while I enjoy them I end up bored. Here Alice is surrounded by beautiful male characters like the White Rabbit, Blood Dupre (Mad Hatter), Ace of Hearts, and so on. The thing this series does well is that it is often comical but has a underlining sinister feeling to it; you aren’t entirely sure of all the characters motives. Only five chapters out so far but I’m already hooked. Go take a look for yourself….

Also I must warn you just like the scanlation group does you will lose the game all the time while reading this manga. (click the picture if you’re interested)
