    Preview Alter’s Beautiful Shiki Ichinose

    I am absolutely helpless against the onslaught of IDOLM@STER figures, especially if it’s one from Alter or Phat! Company’s lines. I just… I love their designs so very much. The pink, the frills, the over-the-top aesthetic. I eat it up with a spoon (as long as the price is reasonable, which is my main concern with this cutie).

    This time around it’s my most anticipated IM@S girl from Alter: Shiki Ichinose! I love how unique her pose is, very creative… though you know she’s going to be a shelf hog because of it. And the level of detail is amazing! I mean, just admire the book. And her little cat-mouth, aww! Orders open tonight, and I can already feel myself hitting that pre-order button.

    Summer WonFest 2017: PLUM

    PLUM didn’t have a ton at Wonder Festival this year, and the focus definitely seemed to be on new announcements. They had 3: Assassin from Fate/Grand Order, Megumi Jinno from Eromanga, and Jun Gotou from Tenshi no 3P!.

    They also had some new cuties out on display: Chie Sasaki & KaoruRyuuzaki from Cinderella Girls, and Kokoa Hoto & Chino from Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka??.

And it’s always with girls (or boys, from the Altair line) from franchises that I otherwise wouldn’t care about. Am I super obsessed with their Love Live and IM@S girls? Yes. Would I willingly watch either of those shows? No. I just love frilly dresses so very much.</p> <p>This year they have a great lineup. Shiki Ichinose from <em>Cinderella Girls</em> is the most beautiful thing I’ve seen in my life, but the Love Live girls are also looking strong with a gorgeous Riko Sakurauchi. We have many, many FREE! boys and some other Altair announcements: <em>Fate/Grand Order</em> dudes! Merlin, Arthur Pendragon, and Edmon Dantes will all be getting scales. If you like the ladies, Alter will be doing Shielder too. They seem to be getting back to Strike Witches, which is nice, and we also have a surprise Chachamaru and Asuna.

    Summer WonFest 2017: Aquamarine

    Are you ready, guys? Because Wonder Festival has begun! Actually, it’s about half an hour away, but companies love to make me miserable by tweeting out their own stuff before doors even open. Yayy.

    First up today is Aquamarine, who has a small but nicely curated collection of figures. I of course love the Caroline & Justine the most, so presh so mean. We’ve also got IDOLM@STER, Girls und Panzer, Galko-chan, Sakura Wars, an announcement from Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka??, and a surprise Tony Taka gal.

    [UPDATE] with an absolutely STUNNING Gwendolyn, along with Asuna and a few other cuties.
