Plan on future reviews + insight on Sekaiichi Hatsukoi – I love it too much.

So yesterday while thinking about what to post in my next update, doing a series/OVA review suddenly occurred to me. Since not all of you can buy Japanese tankoubons off online stores and personally appreciate it by being able to read it than just reading my reviews, I thought of posting series/OVA reviews from now on. But please don’t expect me to post the download links here. I pretty much assume you guys already know where to download, right? ( ̄ー ̄)

Okay so anyway, moving on. So as I stated before in this post, I’m really in love with Shungiku Nakamura’s Sekaiichi Hatsukoi. I mean seriously, it pwns Junjou Romantica BIGTIME. I love it so, sooooo much. \(;A;)/Also, this series has some kind of sentimental value to me. I’ve always dreamed of working in a manga publishing company and this series made me realize a lot of things about manga publishing – especially the “cycle”, lol.

Persona 4 Anime Adaptation + random illustration

I know everybody’s been waiting for this. Ever since the mysterious video and countdown site appeared, everyone’s been talking and patiently waiting for its most-anticipated announcement. I was actually expecting a P4P release rather than an animaton, though. But nonetheless, it’s still exciting. Also, Souji’s name is changed to “Narukami Yu”. (o__o ) I really think “Seta Souji” is cooler, though. D:

I really waited for the TV to turn 00:00:00. And when it finally turned 0, I turned it on and… well, nothing happened. Good thing a friend of mine sent me another link then there it was – the announcement of an anime release. So, I waited for nothing basically. Hopefully something turns up tomorrow in the TV.

Also, Takarai Rihito and Yamada Nichome were also tweeting about it a while ago!

Takarai Rihito’s tweet is so cute! She let her friend borrow her P4 game that’s why she still couldn’t play it. I don’t know why I find that cute, though. /lolbiased

So anyway, in celebrating today’s most-anticipated Persona 4 announcement, I TRIED to make a fanart but failed. I really fail in drawing Yosuke’s hair everytime so I just turned it into a random BL illustration, lol.

‘Til the next update!

Review: BRS + Dead Master Nendoroid Petite DVD Set

I already posted this in my old blog but then I decided to re-post it here. So this is the Black Rock Shooter + Dead Master Nendoroid Petite Blu-ray + DVD set I got for myself last Christmas. You really won’t regret if you buy this awesome collectible! *u*

Mind you that the BRS Nendoroid I have right there is sold separately. I also bought it together with this DVD set.

I instantly fell in love with the whole BRS project after seeing the 1/8 scale figure of BRS (with her Rock Cannon) in some random hobby site. I really love how the characters look like because of their uniqueness. I found also found out about it because of Vocaloid. I actually thought it BRS and Miku are the same, lol.

I actually didn’t plan to buy this since my budget was only for the BRS Nendoroid. But when I got to the store, the seller recommended me this and offered me a fair price. So obviously, I couldn’t refuse. I just had to buy it. I was given a large discount on both items as well so, YAY! *u*

The set comes with a Blu-ray DVD, OVA guide and guide sketches from the animation.

Finally, these are the adorable Nendoroid Petites (a.k.a “Nendoroid Puchi”). I wish they also have Black Gold Saw and Strength ones. I’m not much of a Dead Master fan and it saddens me to only see a very short glimpse of Black Gold Saw in the OVA. I wish they can create another animation and include some fighting scenes of Black Gold Saw and Strength. Also, I wish they could already include the other characters as well! Black Matagi, Dragon Slayer, Nafhe and my most-awaited Insane Black Rock Shooter. ;___;

What I originally plan to buy was the 1/8 scale figure of BRS with her Rock Cannon. I couldn’t get my hands on it because only certain stores get to sell the original ones and have limited stocks only. But I’m still choosing between Rock Cannon or the Animation version. Hmm.

I also plan to buy Black Gold Saw’s Nendoroid and Figma once I finally got my hands on that BRS figure. Ah, these are the times when I wish I had all the money in the world, lol. I have tons of figurines on my list, actually. It makes me cry whenever I check those figures in my frequent hobby sites or stores since I’m broke most of the time. Huuu. ;___;

So there you have it, a short(?) entry about my current collections, lol. Until the next entry!

As you can see, the watermarks on these photos are “dornkistern”. Just for everyone’s information, “dornkistern” is actually the old name of my Tumblr. You might think I stole this photos somewhere elese, lol.
