Busou Shinki – A kind of mecha Angelic Layer?

September 21, 2008

One of the first things I thought when I saw Busou Shinki’s quite a while back, was ‘those joints don’t look too great’. But After researching further into it when I was able to buy one, I found they’re meant to be like that. They’re from a series about battle dolls, like Angelic Layer! And better yet, theres an online game which you can play and unlock Busou’s with the codes you get with the figures! The games called Battle Rondo I believe, and gets new characters updated when new Busou are released. Which is a mucho cool feature if I must say so myself!

Like the sucker I am I fell for this franchise and was under its spell, and wanting more!!! I haven’t downloaded the game yet… will when at uni probably… The pic above came from wiki, tis all the Busou’s to date I think… there might be a couple missing… it looks like they’ve got progressively cuter as time went by, which I’m all for personally! Below you’ll find the opening for the first game released.

Love the op music actually, the rest ain’t too bad either, but you can go hunting for that if you’re so inclined too.

This is a sneak peak of my three newest Busou Shinki’s, MaoChao to the left, Arnval in the middle and Howling on the right. I’ll post more pics of them later on! Enjoy for now and go investigate for yourselves!!

Suprise Loot Aqquired!!

I went to one of my local game/figure places today, expecting just Busou Shinki’s, like my brother told me. And I was totally gobsmacked when I found a gold mine of figures!!! And a good few rare ones too!! I never even knew they made a Shion/Mion figure before today… and pretty much all these figures, Bome’s, Kotobukiya’s etc, were all £10($20) or under!!!! I was sad they didnt have all the Busou Shinki’s my bro said were there, I wanted the angel too, aswell as the devil type. But the other figures more than made up for it!! I only spent £36($72) aswell…. wish I could have spent more… but I was controlling myself, so I only bought Serio from To Heart, and left Akari….:sniff: But I got Himekuri girl finally!! (The white one, would have gotten either.) Only £8($16) for her!! The Busou Shinki Devil Strarf was just £8, and the Mion/Shion(with two backs of hair.) was only £10 too!!! GAH I felt so lucky….

Prices(for those who dont want to read the whole rant lol)
Kotobukiya Serio (To Heart) – £10($20)
Konami MMS Busou Shinki Strarf Devil – £8($16)
Kaiyodo Himekuri Girl – £8
MegaHouse Sonozaki Shion/Mion (Higurashi no naka koro ni) – £10

There was also several Bome figures, the Kiddy Grade Twin pack, Full Metal Panic(twin set?) And there were 4 different kinds of Gundam figures, 3 girls and one guy, Meer Cambell was one of them. (Not familiar with the Gundam universe…. Might have been 00…) So much awesome stuff… there were three To Heart figures actually… Serio’s sister(?) was there too. There were some mecha revoltech and gunpla too. But no Gelgoog, so no deal…

(I’m sorry, but I had to rant, it was like the expo!! So many goodies!!!)
(The local figure and game place in question, which usually does not sell this kinda stuff, just final fantasy, star wars, dr who, wrestling, other cult stuff, is called Toyz and Gamez. They have an amazon.co.uk marketplace shop tool.)

(I know… I posted this as a news item… but I wrote so much in my rant I’m reusing it. Waste not – want not lol.) I will take pics of new goodies once the camera is charged. (I have to go fetch the charger first…:sigh: So lazy…)
