@GeekeryDo: @mikeyturvey I agree with you. I stopped reading them because I got tired of it, though @Sir_Narwhal is correct that it's normal for comics.

@GeekeryDo: @Sir_Narwhal @mikeyturvey yeh but that's just one arc and it's easy to read it all since, as you said, it's been put together like that.

@NFern0: @Sir_Narwhal Sounds like (ohoho) specialist equipment. Black Friday is more mass consumer oriented isn't it?

Beach Queen Archive

Wave, what are you doing. Please stop. Why would you show off like 20 releases at once? You need to stagger this stuff! I feel like I’ve been info overloaded. About halfway through slogging through this massive image vomit I got to the fact that another MegaTen series, Devil Survivor 2, was getting Beach Queens (or more specifically Io Nitta, but I’m sure Airi will join her!) and I just went “oh okay.” Instead of acting like a 10-year-old in an ice cream parlor, like I usually do when anything SMT related is involved.
We’ve got a ton of ladies for you today! They’re (finally) doing an Ayase from OreImo, the Suisei no Gargantia girls are sculpted, we’ve got quite a lot of Girls und Panzer & Vividred Operation, To Aru Kagaku no Railgun S snuck its way in, and then there’s the more “fringe” and new licenses. Tokurei Sochi Dantai Stella Jogakuin Koutou-ka C3-bu (what even?), Kiniro Mosaic, Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince, Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru (I can’t), Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru, and Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai a good librarian like a good shepherd (these names oh my god).

I feel like this announcement should have been made ages ago: Wave loves nothing more than girls in skimpy bikinis, and who is more suited for that role than Super Soniko? And seeing as how they hand out her license like candy on Halloween, I thought we’d get a Beach Queen of her like… years ago. But nope, it took until 2013! Her sculpt does look crisper than most Beach Queens, so perhaps some extra time went into it?
There’s a lot to love (and hate) in this figure. Let’s get the stupid top out of the way first. I HATE underboob–it’s so ridiculously impractical and stupid. Any real girl would rather die than wear her stupid swimsuit. But I love that Wave kept her hips and thighs sufficiently curvy, and we’re getting some nice hip cleavage too. Also an ice cream cone! Though the pose really is kind of absurd and over the top…. but isn’t that kind of her thing?

A short while ago, Wave announced three new Beach Queens: Miki Hoshii, Azusa Miura, and Takane Shijou. In typical Wave fashion they’ve moved quite quickly and all three of these girls are already painted! And, unfortunately, in typical Wave fashion the uncolored sculpts looked a lot better. I’m disappointed in all of the finished versions, especially Azusa and Takane.
Miki was the only one I was planning on buying anyway, and perhaps I’m biased but she looks the most acceptable to my eyes. Yes… acceptable. Not good, just… okay. There’s very little shading on any of the trio and they just look so flat! For shame, Wave, for shame.

Of the many, many shows, games and manga Wave has worked on over the years they seem to have a crush on two in particular: Evangelion and IDOLM@STER. We see them churn out figure after figure from these two franchises! I’m surprised they haven’t started on Cinderella Girls yet, but it seems like at last we are getting second versions of two of my favorite IM@S girls: Miki Hoshii and Azusa Miura, along with Takane Shijou.
I adore figures in sitting positions, so these are kind of an instant win for me. I’m totally in love with the sculpt for Miki, though I feel like the busts are kind of overdone on Azusa and Takane. I know they are the bustiest girls in the group but they look weirdly padded and unnatural here. But I’m trying to slim down on my collection anyway, so Miki is the only must have! Now if only they’d do Anzu Futaba…

Wave usually puts up their Beach Queens for order in sets of two, but it seems like they’re upping the ante this time with three new ladies! And surprisingly, only one of them was previously announced: Himawari Shinomiya from Vivdred Operation. I am trying (successfully!) to cut down on Beach Queen purchases, so while Himawari is cute the perfectly spherical boobs make her an instant pass.
Then we have two new announcements! The first is the adorable loli Chiwa Harusaki from Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru. She’s cute but something seems… missing? I think the body proportions are a little odd and she could definitely benefit from more shading. The third girl, Hibari from Senran Kagura, is totally going to make me break my BQ no-buy because OH GOD SO CUTE SO PINK NEED HER! I love the pose, and she seems a lot more lively than most Beach Queens. All 3 are going up for order tonight, and I really hope they make more Senran Kagura girls.

Well, this is shocking! Not because Vividred Operation is unpopular–quite the opposite, actually, I’m shocked it took Wave so long to pick up the cast for their Beach Queens line. I mean, they announced a figure of Sasami Tsukuyomi before this. Sasami, who is almost always in pajamas, over Vividred Operation, a show where the main cast never wears pants. Yeah.
Anyway, all the main girls are getting Beach Queens! Akane Isshiki, Rei Kuroki, Aoi Futaba, Wakaba Saegusa and Himawari Shinomiya will all be made into miniatureform for your viewing and purchasing delight sometime in the near future. Truly thrilling news!

If there is one recent anime that seemed totally destined for Wave’s bikini-clad Beach Queens line, it was Medaka Box since the plot revolves around the giant boobs of the main character or some such. Strangely enough they held off a long time on this announcement: even Max Factory, who tend to be way behind the curve, beat them to it!
Oh, and it’s not just Medaka Kurokami who will be getting the Beach Queens treatment: Hansode Shiranui will be as well. As a short, bubbly loli she’s pretty much the exact opposite of Medaka so they’ll make an interesting duo.

It was only a few days ago that Wave announced a Beach Queen of Noumi from Little Busters! and already we are getting a look at her sculpt. As you’d expect from the character Noumi is full of energy: in fact, her feet aren’t even on the ground! I must admit that the swimsuit isn’t exactly what I pictured her in but overall I think she looks adorable. I love that they kept her hat on and the hair looks great: my only concern is that her eyes are a little far apart, but she isn’t even painted yet so this is obviously not the final face and likely won’t be an issue once we see the finished prototype.

Welcome to the return of the roundup! Sadly we here at Plastikitty got hit by a nasty spring flu so we’ve been out of commission in terms of the roundup for a few weeks, but now we’re back in business! Though technically it’s the roundup for the week of 3/29~4/4 we’re also featuring some of the best figures from the week before as well.
So what do we have in store? Tons of pretty ladies! In fact we’ve got releases from almost all the major manufacturers, including some that I have been really looking forward to. Check them all out after the jump!

Oh, Wave, not every single character needs to be shoved into a swimsuit and put into your Beach Queens line. Especially not ones that are usually, you know, clad head to toe in baggy floral pajamas. But Wave doesn’t seem to really pay attention to characters: ratings are what they go after, and Sasami-san@Ganbaranai is apparently popular enough to warrant an addition into the Beach Queens line. So expect miss Tsukuyomi to make an appearance in swimwear sometime in the near future!
