Kotobukiya Michiru Yamada ~ToHeart2 Another Days~ 1/8th PVC Figure – An every-otaku review

November 23, 2008

Welcome once again to my humble photoshoot! Which I agree! Is too dark…. I tried pointing another light at them, but there arn’t many plugs in my room. And many wires are already tangled behind my workspace lol.

Today we look at the lovely specimen, Michiru Yamada, from ToHeart2 Another Days. The character is friends with Chie Yoshioka :woop woop!!:, who you will see a little later, and of course, the main protagonist of the first ToHeart2 game, Konomi Yuzuhara. Chie is still my favourite. Although megane on figures are lovely.

She’s rather moe if I do say so myself. She has nice scruffy looking hair too. And the same uniform as Chie Yoshioka. Slightly different yellow to Chie, but fairly close.

The hands don’t rest exactly on the edge of the brick wall which she’s sat on, which is a shame, but not the worst possible thing. That pose reminds me of an episode of Friends lol. One of the ones after Ross finds out about Rachael and Joey and Joey tells Rachael to say ‘I’m so sorry!’ while doing pretty much what Michiru is doing with her jublees. And as far as jublees go, they are smaller than Chie’s, but bigger than Konomi’s lol.

Michiru is not as ‘muchi’ as Chie by any means, looks more tomboyish in figure, hair etc. The jumper seems to be a slightly different plastic/finish/feel what have you. Chie’s is slightly smoother. They both have nice shading in the jumper aread though. And sleeves. I love the skirts. I do. I believe they’re clear pvc painted on the top layer. Because the under skirt looks very funky. And looks like it won’t leave paint marks when removing the skirt either. Many more pics to be seen, read on folks!

London Expo Cosplay

October 30, 2008

On sunday, I vowed to ignore the stalls(for the most part) and just get many, many photos. Which I did. Not all decent enough to post here, I need a better camera… I do….. GAH…. And beware… theres a shock at the end of the post….

There were game characters…

There were eroge characters! Which I was uber-happy about! (Misuzu!!!) I even saw some cosplayers of Shuffle and Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru(I think…)

Manga/anime characters and more! (Love this Sakura’s outfit, hairs not right, but its still a great outfit.)

Rosette from Chrono Crusade.(I spelt Rosette right, right? She is Rosette….right? I’m too lazy to google all these characters I’m not sure of the names.) And some character from Bleach.

Apparantly a character from the Chronicles of Riddick.

Some of Danny-sans comrades. Only got a back shot of these while I was in the queue. I have other Trooper pics I believe…

Many more photos below the belt.

London Expo Weekend – Figures + Cosplay + More!

October 27, 2008

Expo has now come and gone. And so has over £250 of my money. But all to a very good cause!! Which you will see later on.

This is the first time I’ve been to both days of the Expo. Usually I just got for the sunday, cheaper travel and alot less people. I didnt realise just how many less people went on a sunday… Saturday was so busy….. too busy…. So busy I’m almost definately never going on saturday again…. We got to the Excel Center a little later than we wanted… because one of our group got lost.(They weren’t travelling with us to begin with, we met up at the hostel we stayed at.) So… we got there just before they should have stopped selling fast track tickets… but they’d stopped early…. so we had to join the MASSIVE normal entry queue….. which we were stuck in for just over an hour I think… might have been more… I can’t remember well… have blocked it from my mind….

After we got in the queue people continued to turn up… it was insane… And we didnt start moving properly for AGES…. it was so boring…

Getting closer… round the corner of the building lol

Finally…. So nearly there…. Along the way I did get some shots of random cosplay though. Not all bad being stuck in the queue.

Name that Twilight Princess character…. since I’ve forgotten her name… lol It’s a really awesome outfit though. Great headpiece.

Name that cosplay! I think they’re from Final Fantasy….12?

London Expo – 2 days to go!!!

October 23, 2008

2 days till Expo!!!!! RAWG!!! Getting totally stoked!!!!! I’m just trying to figure out which figures I hope to purchase….. I do hope they have the Hatsune Miku Figma there…. and I can see how big the GSC Miku is too. BUT one of the ones I want most is the Nono-chan from Yotsuba!!! I hope to god she’s available there… for under £30….. She’s soooo cute! And I would love a Tsurya-san…. I’m gonna try and optimize my spending…. maximum figures for minimum amount, so I’ll make my usual rounds to each stall, then go back for my choices, hope to god they’ll still be there… I did that with the Himekuri Girl and she had completely disapeared…. For £10 its not unexpected…. Lucky I got her for about the same price a little earlier on this year.

This Expo there are soooo many awesome actors going!!! 4 members of the cast of Primeval(british tv series on ITV), 4 members of the Heroes cast, including Greg Grunberg!! :wooooot: Cast members and creators from Merlin, and cast and creators of a new series called Demons, about vampires apparantly. AND, I totally forgot, that Ben Barnes dude from the new Narnia, he played Prince Caspian in Prince Caspian!! I haven’t seen it, but he’s cute! Brad Swaile(voice of Raito(Light) Yagami is gonna be there too.
