Durarara!!’s Heiwajima Shizuo

ALTAiR's Heiwajima Shizuo

I had this figure with me sometime in September. It took me one month later to unbox it and then another couple of months to write a blog post about it. Oh gosh. It’s not like I have no love for this figure, it’s more like I’m busy and then I’m lazy…yeah.

Alrighty, then. Coming up is more pictures of the fierce-looking, sexy male figure Heiwajima Shizuo. Besides MegaHouse’s Roronoa Zoro (One Piece) Strong World Edition Version 2, this is the only other male figure I have. I saw this online several WonFest ago and decided I gotta have it. Striking figure!

Steins;Gate’s Makise Kurisu

IMG_6535

When I held GSC’s 1/8 scale Makise Kurisu for the first time, I felt like I’m holding an Oscar. Not that I ever hold one before, but that thought really crossed my mind. Weird.

The noted figure manufacturer Good Smile Company first introduced this mighty gorgeous scale figure of Makise Kurisu in Summer Wonfes 2011 and I immediately fell in love with it. Well, it was unpainted when I first saw it but gosh, I love that pose! It was the most beautiful (unpainted) figure I ever saw. And I was dying to have one. Now here it is in my possession. I’m so happy.

Nendoroid Aisaka Taiga

Nendoroid Aisaka Taiga is finally here! While many received her many weeks ago, I only got her like two days ago. But you know what? It’s okay so long she’s already here. For those who are wondering who in the world is Aisaka Taiga – she is the lovely lead character from the popular romantic comedy series, Toradora!. And that palmtop tiger you see later on represents the nickname given to her.

Now let’s just bury ourselves in some Taiga cuteness!

One Piece’s Roronoa Zoro

I took these pictures a looooong time ago. I remember posting it in Figure.fm couple years ago but maybe under a different username or something. I was going through my folders in my trusty lappie when I stumbled upon this. I figured since I’ve never actually posted the pictures on this blog, I might as well do it now.

Oh, how can I forget to introduce this figure? It’s MegaHouse’s Excellent Model Portrait of Pirates “Strong Edition” Roronoa Zoro Version 2. Phew, that’s a long name. Without further ado, here are the rest of pictures of this lovely figure.

Japan Blog Matsuri: Hoshiko’s Reasons for Visiting Japan

I’m going to Japan in less than four years. That’s the plan. And it’s going to happen!

I found out about Japan Blog Matsuri through Justin’s post in Organization Anti-Social. He really is an expert in discovering new blogs and stuff. I’ve been meaning to write a post on this topic but kept procrastinating.  It is hosted by A Modern Girl. When I saw Kuuki and Nopy have it up on their blogs, I know I should type away my own post A.S.A.P.

My reasons are largely influenced by my hobbies I suppose. Not all, but most. =) The most important thing for me is to experience and see firsthand the things I see around the Internet. The list of reasons below is not sorted in any particular order, just whichever that came first to mind.

Angel Beats! Yuri

After a long wait, lo and behold, my Angel Beats! Yuri has arrived. Another product of Good Smile Company to my collection. What I like about this particular figure is her pose. It’s dynamic. Her skirt, hair, ribbon flowing. It’s beautiful. It’s as if she just whipped out her gun and is ready to shoot…even though she’s smiling. >.<

I missed the pre-order of this figure. I must’ve missed it entirely until the pre-order is closed! Cuz by the time I noticed her, she’s about to be released. She’s sold out from a lot of shops in Malaysia but lucky me – with the help of a local figure store, MomoToys, I back-ordered her.
