Anime Review 2018 Part IV

As with the visual novel game released about 3 years ago this official Anime sequel also takes place just before the prequel's ending about midway through episode 23 so, you could kind of call it an extended version of the original Steins;Gate too. After many attempts Okabe has given up hope trying to reach Steins Gate and savehis...


Muv-Luv Alternative Total Eclipse, Yui Takamura 1/7 Scale Figure Review

I really liked the kimono and paper parasol on this figure. Wasn't impressed with the paint work on the bootleg 1/6 Shiki figure's kimono so I decided to go for the authentic figure since it wasn't that much more expensive than a new PS4 game. Going to be my first authentic figure too after having a look at a whole series of bootleg ones....


Makoto Shinkai's Next Movie "Tenki no Ko" Premieres in July 19th

Makoto Shinkai's next movie will be "Tenki no Ko [Weather Child]" due to première in July 19th. Subtitled as "Weathering with You", the story tells of a young man named Hotaka (played by Kotarou Daigo) who decided to run away to Tokyo from his home on an isolated island during summer, when he reached the first year of senior...


Studio Pablo ACCA: 13 Background Artbook

I quite enjoyed the ACCA-13 Anime because it was steadily paced like nothing's happening but you had to pay attention to what's going on. That and it has some great theme songs like "Shadow and Truth". It has some great retro looking backgrounds and world setting too. So here's the background artbook filled with art from Studio Pablo...


Sakura Wars: Sakura Shinguji 1/8 Scale Figure, CN Version Review

I watched the Sakura Wars TV series and quite enjoyed its steampunk setting during the Taisho Era. Great use of colours, good balance of comedy and action with some catchy theme songs too. Didn't know it started out as a Sega franchise back on the Sega Saturn (that was an interesting console!) So, let's have a look at how well this...


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...


Anime Review 2018 Part III

A slice-of-life romcom that started off as a comic on the Japanese online artists community Pixiv before being serialised as a web comic. 26 year old Narumi Momose seems like your average optimistic cheery girl but she has a secret. She doesn't want anyone to find out she's an Otaku (geek) because guys always dump her when they find out...


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...


Anime Review 2018 Part II

Yusaku Godai is a "ronin", a student waiting for his next chance to pass university entrance exams. To make things worse, he lives in a shared rundown apartment called the "Ikkoku Apartment" with a group of inconsiderate and strange neighbours. Despite his best efforts to study and pass, they constantly harass and use his room for...


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...
