    (NSFW) Rock Out With Amakuni’s Astaroth

    I have seen the light! When it was first announced that two new sins would join the Seven Deadly Sins line, I was annoyed. It kind of seemed like just milking the franchise, which we already have with all the alternate sculpts and colorways. Also I hated Belial’s design (…and still do), so it was just a big nope for me.

    But now we’re seeing Astaroth, the sin of Melancholy, painted and I am in love. The pink, the ruffles, her over-the-top outfit and perfectly grumpy face. Of course she is exclusive like all the other Amakuni figures and comes at a pretty steep cost (¥12,800) but I will pay it happily. I’m already wondering what her alternate version will look like! Please be cat ears.

    Bath Towel Mami Tomoe Is A Real Thing That’s Happening

    So far Aniplex’s Madoka Magica line has given us some really amazing figures like Maiko Madoka and Devil Homura, but I mean… a show with one season and some movies can only get you so far in the figure world. They need to branch out a bit for new figures, though I really did not expect… this.

    It’s Mami in a towel she appears in for like two seconds. Just… why? Does anyone need this figure? I will admit that her face is lovely, but the sculpt isn’t even nice enough to justify a purchase.

    Another month, another batch of figure previews from Good Smile Company! This month was jam-packed with newly painted goodies, including Max Factory’s Senkan Re-kyuu who we already showed you. So for this post we’ll be focusing on the poseable figures! Let’s start with figma Satsuki Kiryuuin from Kill la Kill. I’m guessing you already know how I feel about this, but let me just say that the gratuitous figma butt is cracking me up. Like, really? Figma butts. I can’t.

    Then we’ve got two rather amazing Nendoroids! The first is Noel from Sora no Method who has some amazing extras like a UFO (??) and a dinosaur cutout she can actually put her face in. And the faces! SO CUTE. Then we have Takao from Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova, who might have my favorite Nendo accessory of all time: a huggable body pillow.

Honestly, I found that release insanely disappointing: her face sculpt seemed lazy and I really didn’t like the makeup style they went with. I wanted something softer and sweeter, and it seems like I will be getting my wish! That’s right, we are getting a second Miku: Snow Miku version, to no one’s surprise.

    Surprisingly, this is exactly what I wanted in the first Miku! The white skin suits her so well with this outfit, and I like that they went with a larger eye size (24mm versus the original 22mm). The faceup is also a lot subtler and softer. And best of all? She’s a pre-order just like the original! She will retail for ¥65,000 and there are two pre-order periods. If you happen to live in Japan, Volks Sapporo will have orders from Feb 7th-14th that will ship out in January 2016. Think that’s a long wait? Online orders start February 14th and run until April 12th (my birthday!) but you won’t be getting her until June 2016. Good news for people who really need to save up?
