Akiba Hobby has posted images of alot of new figures yet to be released by our endearing friends at Good Smile / Max Factory. I have a few on pre-order at the moment but I'd like to share a few others that I am waiting for to pop up on Hobby Search. The Shana figma has been completed and boy am I in love with the hair on this one; it's transparent and multi-toned. It's slated for a December release while the Nendoroid Shana (which I have on order) is slated for November. Tsuruya figma comes out this month and I have her to ship with my massive bundle which I don't expect to arrive until the beginning of November (if all items are in stock by October). Finally, the Nendoroid I most anticipate, Itoshiki-sensei of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. I can't wait to get this one! I wonder if it comes with a noose? If not, easy enough to make.
Last week I posted my Kagamiku figma pictures. A user on Danny Choo inspired me to photoshop it to look a bit more suitable:
The first 2 weeks of October have been incredible (so far) for anime releases. This weekend we had a few that interest me (I've only been able to obtain 2 so far though). Tora Dora looks like a cute show about a violent slob moe, Hyakko follows the traditional slice of life with 4 school girls, Yozakura Quartet looks like Heroes if it were an anime, and Casshern Sins reminds me a little of Ghost in the Shell (and I've seen the recently released movie of the same title). So far I've only been able to get the first two (which have had good impressions so far), and I'll be watching them tonight.
I've yet to start other things on my list, I suppose since I have a week to wait between episodes of these new shows I could start Gurren Lagann?
If all this wonderful stuff wasn't enough, yesterday I got a brand new display shelf (with sliding glass doors). My dad made it for me as a birthday gift. I took down my old one, dusted down my whole room, and rearranged all the figures. It's beautiful. I'll be showing pictures tomorrow, this post is quite enough for today. Tomorrow's another busy school day, projects ahoy, but I'll find time to make a post.
