more figma nonsense and 1 more...

she cometh


Shinobu is like my favorite character in Monogatari and her figma is just about to be announced. But not only that! They recently announced a figma sub-line called figFIX which is at the same scale, has interchangeable faces between figmas and figFIX's, but is (save for the head) in fixed poses. And they're cheaper. And one of the first figFIXes they revealed is none other than this little vampire! And just as I was worrying that since the figma is the Nise-and-beyond version I would never be able to just have Bake shinobu slouching around wherever. Now, I can reasonably have all the Shinobus! They will complement my Araragi well.....(now if only they would make an Oshino...) It's like some kind of vampire christmas up in figmaland.

(both of them will probably not come out until early 2015 though)

(and it'll still be before kizumonogatari)

(i'm just going to.....keep making blog posts about figmas......forever.....probably......)

Momoe Nagisa's figma is so tiny. So, so tiny. I have mixels bigger than this girl. That's how tiny she is.

(one step closer to a full set of madoka figmas!....)

A figma God Descends on Bookshelf

figma, monogatari, kyoshinhei and 2 more...
Sometimes when I see a figure I can like it so much I get a little obsessed with getting that figure. It's happened a few times...Strength, Jougasaki Mika, Shirai Kuroko.....latest thing that's happened to is this handsome, sexy fellow:

That would be the Kyoshinhei ("Giant Warrior") from a Ghibli tokusatsu short (A Giant/Warrior Warrior/God Descends on Tokyo) that serves as a vague prequel to the old Miyazaki film Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. He's a pretty monstrous and really very cool and unique figma among the sea of japanese schoolgirls that is the figma line. Not to mention that he's based on my favorite Miyazaki movie, so there was no way I wasn't going to get him eventually. So here he is, in eventually. He's pretty cool.

Along with him came Aigis (The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena ver. (long name) there on the right. She has so many guns and is generally very neat. Also Racing Miku 2011 (behind kyoshinhei) I don't like or understand Vocaloid fan culture, especially not surrounding Miku (who imo sounds the worst out of them all) but this (and really only this) design I thought was good enough to warrant buying. It turns out all it ever took to convince me to like Hatsune Miku is to give her spiky hair and an older-looking appearance.

Most importantly (and the best figma out of the 4 i got in this shipment) Araragi Karen, is doing her whole warrior of justice this on the left. Karen is great. The huge majority of all figmas either wear uniforms, cosplay, or some sort of series-specific clothing (or various combinations thereof) so a figma in casual clothing is about the rarest thing ever. I'm no fan of Karen in the actual anime (since her only purpose seems to be Incest Subtext, And Sometimes Text Too) but as a figure she's pretty much perfect. Along with Hanekawa and Hachikuji I'd say she's one of the best I've gotten so far, which really sets a great precedent for the Monogatari series. I have a Tsukihi, Senjougahara and Koyomi coming, and I hope they're as good as the ones I've gotten already. (And I hope that whenever I get around to ordering Kanbaru and Nadeko, they too will be good. Also whenever Shinobu comes out, I guess)

Kamen Rider Ryuki: End

Posted by dotcom , Sep 06 2014 · 55 views
ryuki
I finished Kamen Rider Ryuki today. It was, all around, pretty great. I liked a lot of the characters (Kitaoka, mainly) it had great humor when it needed to (episode 29 is the darn greatest thing ever) and a bunch of pretty solid designs. Also that opening theme is going to be stuck in my head for the next 13 years. I do have a few complaints (Ryuga, Femme, and Verde only appearing in specials/movies, an unsatisfactory conclusion to Toujou's character arc, a messy, overlong and probably unnecessary epilogue, the fact that to be honest I still have no idea about how anything works, etc.) but mostly? Fantastic

One thing that really surprised me sometime is how much death there was. There was so much death, guys. Oh man. I wasn't ready for those last two episodes (especially not 49...) and even before that...man. And that's putting aside the probably hundreds of civilian deaths. So much despair.

Also, poor, poor Imperer. He just wanted to be happy! Aaaaaaaaaah that episode killed me.

I still need to watch Episode Final, and then i'll probably be moving onto another Kamen Rider. I'm not sure which, though. Kabuto seems to have cool designs, and apparently W is great. Maybe I'll just go in order? Who knows.

I still need Knight, Scissors, Raia, Verde and Ryuga's figmas.....soooon.....soooooooon all the Riders will be mine.....
