New Game is a 4-koma style comic about a college graduate who starts working at a game company. the tone is very light, and it’s closer to slice of life than anything else, with a few references to game development (I’ve read about half at this point – taking it leisurely since there doesn’t appear to be a second volume yet). when I read the synopsis I was hoping for something more story-oriented, but this is cute so I’m okay with it
figures | フィギュア
As always, a figure-heavy list:
(img from amiami)
I won’t lie…. her color scheme lured me in D: that and she’s riding a freaking carp! I mean, come on! and that cat… XDDD I love her “cold/allergies” expression too~ I can see that being useful.
(img from amiami) Since I got Kirino, I’d have to get her friend Kuroneko~ I’m really hoping Ayase will be made into a nendoroid, too… hopefully with yandere eyes… >_> I love her “hmph” expression XD
K-ON! nendoroid puchi set (Lawson/TBSishop exclusive)
(img from otacute)
I love K-ON and this set is nice in particular because of Yui’s expression~
figma Senjougahara Hitagi
(img from amiami) Bakemonogatari is wonderful~ and I’m pretty fond of Hitagi. Her ponytail is cute~
To Aru Kagaku no Railgun with Shirai Kuroko figma (PSP)
(img from amiami) Kuroko~~~~
*coughs* right, um, well obviously I’m getting this because Kuroko = Not sure there’s much more I can say about it than that…. XD; This has since been delayed to “Summer 2011″… not sure if the cause of the delay is the game or the figure or both.
another month, another list of pre-orders!
February’s list is moderately long, but March’s will be almost non-existant, strangely enough. Not sure why March is such a dead spot…
nendoroid Kousaka Kirino
(img from amiami) this should be no surprise, given my (mild) obsession with OreImo XD; maybe I’ll actually change out Konata’s face to match with Kirino’s “haaa~” expression XD
So this was meant to be an “expected arrivals” post, but I slacked off and didn’t finish it in time ( ; A;)
First up is the Golden Overload Trio!
Umineko no naku koro ni chiru: Twilight of the golden witch (うみねこのなく頃に散：Twilight of the golden witch)
(img from amiami)
episode 8 of the Umineko series which ostensibly brings the story to a close and answers all the questions Ryuukishi is going to answer XD; (until Umineko “Rei” gets released, perhaps…)
This (past) month’s list is going to be a long one. I don’t know why everything comes out in December (Christmas, maybe?) or perhaps it’s just everything I want coming out in Dec, but either way…
Here we go…
Umineko no naku koro ni: Ronde of Witches and Deduction (PS3)
(img from amiami) It’s no secret I love Umineko, so this should be no surprise. Supposedly all pre-orders come with red & blue truth pens XD; We’ll see. I did take a look at the other preorder items from various stores, but some of them are kind of… strange XD; (the Ange money clip is pretty epic, though, I have to say.)
Well this is a bit late in posting, but since the amiami order hasn’t shipped yet I’m still good, I think >_>
Starting with things that have already arrived:
Dengeki G’s Magazine – Dec 2010
This month’s edition comes with two “bath posters” – one of Kuroko and one of Kanade – as well as an OreImo pencil board~ I’ll talk about the contents in detail in a later post.
this list is subject to change as I order more things but at this point it’s not likely until the end of the month, anyway.
figma Dead Master
I, er, still haven’t seen BRS, but I saw her and said “YES, MUST HAVE.” >_> Maybe it’s the curls, maybe it’s the expression…. or the fact that she comes with two floating skulls. Who knows~ but a very appropriate October release, assuming she gets here before Halloween XD;
Yesterday I sat anxiously waiting for a package to be delivered to me~
What could it be~?
