Hamachi: Yukino Yukinoshita Kimino 1/6 Scale Figure, CN Version Review

The heroine for this figure is from one of those Anime shows that have a long, long name... Yahari Ore no Seishun Rabukome wa Machigatte'ru AKA OreGairu or Hamachi in Japanese. English localisation is a bit more generic as My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU... Google that and you'll end up with all these live action teen comedy movies. You...


Bikini Warriors: Valkyrie 1/7 Figure, CN Version Review

Never watched Bikini Warriors but you can guess what kind of show it is from the title already. Characters don't even have names other than the different classes you can have from your common fantasy RPG. Any Tony Taka fans will probably recognise his female character design right away. The faces always look very similar if you look at...


Triage X: Yuko Sagiri Darkness 1/7 Scale Figure, CN Version Review

Another figure from a series I haven't seen but I liked the femme fatale-like pose holding the katana with the dynamic flowing hair. Triage X is supposed to be about a vigilante organisation known as "Black Label" who bring justice to criminals who are out of reach from the law. Judging from the screenshots (pun intended) it's a fan...


Fate/Grand Order: Lancer Scathach 1/7 Scale Figure, CN Version Review

I always wanted to try Fate/Grand Order the mobile game since I've been a fan of the Fate/Night series but, the gameplay turned out to be quite mundane and the gatcha system didn't feel very exciting with simple colour swaps. Can't say much about the story either since I haven't played that far in. That said, I came across this Lancer...


Garden of Sinners: Shiki Ryougi 1/8 Scale Figure, CN Version Review

Never really got round to watching Garden of Sinners (Kara no Kyoukai) until I came across this figure. I first saw this figure back in 2014 and was impressed by the detail on the kimono and obi belt. Not sure why the figure is being re-manufactured this year in 2018. If you've never seen Garden of Sinners by Kinoko Nasu then you might know...


One Piece: "Flag Diamond Ship" Boa Hancock Figure, CN Version Review

The girls from One Piece seem to get cast in a variety of themed clothing for the arcades. And as usual, there are bootleg versions floating around. Here is Boa Hancock from the "Flag Diamond Ship" series sporting a more stereotype pirate costume you'd probably see ladies wearing during Halloween - made available as an crane game prize...


One Piece: Nefeltari Vivi Glitter & Glamours Figure, CN Version Review

Crane game prizes from Japan are popular items for being sold and they are quite cheap even in Japan going for around 1500 Yen (£10). AmiAmi sells them for around the same price and they're quite good quality for that price compared to the more expensive scale figures that can cost up to £180 each. However, even crane game prizes can have...


Hong Kong Japanese Pop Culture Stores Re-Visited

It's been 8 years since I last wrote about where to find import Japanese pop culture/otaku Anime goods in Hong Kong so I thought I'd write about it again. I visit HK frequently so it's worth knowing about these places for me being a big fan of Japanese video games and Anime. Not much has really changed since that post in 2009 but there are a...


Hatsune Miku Nendoroid

Right, I gave in. After watching the Nendoroid dance and Vocaloid 2 videos, I finally decided to purchase the Hatsune Miku figure. This is the 33rd figure in the Nendoroid series and it's the first figure that I've imported (not counting the free Gashapon ones YesAsia gives away) so lets see what's here. It's also the first time I...
