I remembered the Room Fragrant Rainbow Moon Chalice and soon there was a Proplica. If Bandai really wants more of my dough then they should follow this up with a Proplica version before I can finish reciting the name of every single Yoma that Sailor Moon has encountered.

Very nice loot! I love how much variation is here and all those Cinderella Girls artworks are beautiful.

As for the anime community, I agree with you that it has gone a little downhill lately, and MFC is one of the few safe havens as far as anime communities go. I also feel the same for 'anime nerd' culture in general becoming a bit of a weird superiority contest these days, also present at conventions and in cosplay which I LOVED when they were just purely judgement-free and for fun (not for money or fame..) nerd things back in the day... now all of it is something else I don't quite like as much anymore, it feels like the innocence is gone :(

I'm still sticking around for what I love though and trying to keep my spirit unchanged, because I won't let anyone else push me away from what I love.

I think it's a good thing that anime have become more popular in america, well, at least for me. More and more visual novels are being localized and I'm overjoyed. If mainstreaming means opening up the door to more niche markets, then how can that be anything but positive?

Of course some people are going to bash but people bash for just about anything to make themselves feel better. They're not worth my time nor yours. Just enjoy the new ride and find friends that want to board the same train of interest as you.

Does this belong to the Stick and Rod series?
EDIT: This is 6.47 inches tall whereas the Moon Stick from the S&R is 6.24 inches. This one isn't a revision of this either.

As an outsider to the US, I think a lot of US fandoms have the problems you describe. If anything gets "big" over there, then you can be guaranteed that some of the online communities will turn to shit.

Toxic fans definitely exist over here, but I feel it's more self-limiting. I think they'll generally throw in with the American lot online, and the usual behaviours tend to mean they don't integrate a whole lot irl. I feel like you get less "passionate" people here too. Invested in a show, yes, the show being their life... less so.

The cosplay community thing reminds me about what happens to MMOs when they go free-to-play - paid MMOs are more niche, and your average person is more likely to be invested in the game, because, well, they've invested in it. Then the f2p horde comes in, which brings in a lot of people who don't care, and you get a few people backsliding into bad habits, as they can get away with stuff now. The nice communities are often still there, they're just hidden under the noise, and you have to go find them. You have to let them observe you, and give them chance to invite you. That 'pre-guild' time can be rough, but it's kind of the only way. I suspect the kindly cosplayers are out there, some will have given it up, and the rest are more guarded to avoid the noisy lot.

Ja hab mich leider echt wieder vom Joker getrennt. Ich hatte die Vorbestellungen für die beiden anderen Persona 5 Mädels gecancelt und hatte dann keinen Bock nur Akira zu behalten XD Ich find P5 immernoch toll und hätte auch gerne iwann die Anne, Futaba und Makoto Figuren aber das muss definitiv noch warten ^^;

Hab nämlich für nächstes Jahr wieder nen Flug nach Japan gebucht ^^;; D.h. jetzt gehts wieder los mit sparen XD

Die Velvet hätte ich mit allerdings sofort noch bestellt wenn sie die jetzt nochmal mit Dämonenarm rausgebracht hätten, aber so... nöp :P Was mich bei ihr immer gestört hat, war das Face Oo Sieht weder so aus wie im Game noch im ToZX Anime >_> Vlt hab ich ja auch Glück und kann sie mit Bonus iwo in Tokyo ergattern :D

Das mit dem fest genagelt sein bei Pre-Ordern stimmt total -_- Und dann wird man ja doch mmer wieder hängen gelassen... sollte im November eigl 3 Figuren bekommen, alle wurden verschoben, eine sogar bis Feb 2018 O_o

Ah, your being too nice m(_ _)m Thank you for your lovely words <3

So you already played ToZ? Glad to hear you enjoyed it!! I honestly love everybody who loves Tales XD And I totally agree to your comment about the character developement, I generally think that's one of the most amazing things about the Tales franchise <3 So you're a gamer too? What other games are you into? :D

Yeah, no one in my family enjoyed reading novels either ^^; I've always been the weirdo in the fam who loved reading and buying lots of books and building a library XD As for Victorian era stuff, there are a whole bunch of novels taking place in Victorian days and also lots of non-fiction books on Amazon. I just think it's a very interesting era (also adore the fashion of this time ^^) As for manga, I only really know Kaori Yuki's Count Cain series, which is rather old but one of my favourite Manga series ever. It's very dark and edgy though and has some horror elements, so it might not be for everybody ^^;; Do you have any mystery or crime Manga/Anime recommendations? I'd love to read and watch more stuff like that :D

victorviper (2 dag(en) geleden) #28813977I was going to write a review of that figure, but I never quite got around to doing so. I got as far as setting up the review and organizing the pictures, but I never actually wrote anything. I've got a dozen reviews like that for which I keep saying "maybe someday...".
It probably doesn't help that I don't really know very much about the character. I know Kasumi is a secondary character from Muv-Luv Alternative, but that's about it.
I bought the figure because I found her cheap on Amazon a couple of years ago, and I thought she was cute. Plus, I like her body language and melancholic expression paired with the bunny costume; it kind of reminds me of this item #1156 melancholic bunny Asuka :).


Ah, like that~ Well, photographing is already a lot of fun, reviewing or not! I also recently made some pictures of figures that are already heavily reviewed, so I was thinking of just making small picture-dumps blogs with them or do some writing about them without actually reviewing. Still thinking about that.

I only wrote the introduction to my Kasumi review so far, but my pictures are done editing. I think I will upload her review next week if I keep on having enough time to work on the reviews (my new job will start soon which will take away a lot of the free time I now have).

To be honest there, I also don't know much about Muv-Luv, even though I also almost bought item #4433 one time. I guess I'm just really attracted to the character design. Apparently Kasumi has quite a big role in the Alternative spin-off.

I got mine when I did a huge trade with a friend a few years ago, in which we exchanged multiple scaled figures from our collection. I thought her posing and face was adorable.

jimreynold2nd (3 uur geleden) #28911380Out of the 3, I still have not seen one worth getting... None of them captured her 3 defining features: cute, sad, and fluffy. It may be hard to sculpt something "fluffy" with a plastic figure, but it should definitely not be shiny plastic. Also, Nanachi should not be this cheery.
Except Nanachi does actually smile a lot.
Especially on most of the official art released, both anime and Tukushi Akihito's art work.
If all you associate Nanachi with is the Mitty scenes, then I guess I get what you're going at, but Nanachi is a pretty cheery character.
Maybe not as much as the rest of the cast though.
Potential spoilers for the anime-only watchers, but Nanachi does get happier the more time she's spent with Reg and Rico.

To answer OP's question though, my favorite is definitely the Kotobukiya one.
The pose and expression is the most subtle.
I don't like the pose on the Toy's Works one and even if I love the idea of having a Mitty next to Nanachi, I'm not the biggest fan of figures that are flat on the ground.
I always have a hard time displaying them in a good way.

Tip for European customers.

It seems like the EU import version has the bonus head included. They didn't say it anywhere, and my local shop was surprised to see the bonus head when they received the package from the distributor.

Check with your local shops or online European stores, you might be surprised too. I didn't want to buy this initially because of the exclusive, but when I saw the bonus in the EU version I just went for it. The figure just arrived with the bonus head included. It didn't cost less than a proxy order or JP import, most likely, but the ease of purchase and fast shipping without customs were worth it for me.

Koto should have announced it from the start, I don't think the distributors knew it either. They would have avoided a lot of complaints and would have had more EU preorders, in my opinion.

It seems like Koto doesn't care enough about the EU market to make announcements. This time, we were lucky.

I fail to see what's your problem with the community?

Like, what's the problem with it becoming mainstream? I never understood why some people seem to have take issue with that, be it in music, movies, games, etc. More people enjoy anime, we have easier access to it than ever, you're not some weirdo for liking it. What's bad about that?

Carousel (3 uur geleden) #28911622I never said he deserved a figure ASAP, or even implied it.
I don't know why we're all bothering to argue about this…
