New Detolf & New Matcha & New Anime

April 13, 2016

combo pic

So last week I got to go to Ikea, and finally get a second Detolf 😀 (amongst other things, like shelves and cutlery).

I also caved and got some more matcha, which was in the last post. But today I caved and opened it. Which I’m glad I did.

And the past couple of weeks all the new anime has started, and I’ve tried almost everything new out, even the shorts. Haven’t decided to pick many up though… so far anyway.

What We Did On Our Holiday – Not the heart warmer reviews promised… – Review – (BEWARE SPOILERS)

September 26, 2014
The review quotes are LIES. FILTHY LIES!! Ok I may be overreacting. But I certainly did not fall in love with this movie...

The review quotes are LIES. FILTHY LIES!! Ok I may be overreacting. But I certainly did not fall in love with this movie…

Now I’ll admit, the main reason I went to see this movie was for David Tennant. I was never a fan of Outnumbered. Children in comedy usually makes me cringe. USUALLY.

Please watch the trailer, then watch the movie, and wait for your ideas to be ripped apart.

This movie was almost in 2 halves. For me, the first half was funny, charming, I didn’t even want to throttle the kids. Tennant was lovely, Pike was lovely, Miller was lovely, Connolly was lovely. The relationship between the kids, Lottie especially, and Gordy was lovely. I really liked how it was portrayed. The way she talked with her grandad. BUT shortly after that it lost me…(See below the cut for plot & spoilers & my thoughts…)

Kotobukiya Aegis 1/8th Figure {Persona 3}

February 7, 2009

5

Now on HLJ it says this is a 1/7th scale figure, she seems too small to be 1/7th, I’d say 1/8th, I even calculated it, 162cm(the real height) divded by 20cm(figure height), which is 8.1. Making it 1/8th scale. It only says 1/7th on HLJ though, not on the box… I’m needlessly obsessing over this lol. Right. Stopped. She’s made from a combo of ABS and PVC, feels like its more ABS that PVC frankly, lighter thats for sure, but stronger.

Clayz Haruka Nogizaka 1/8th PVC Figure Review (I FINALLY GOT HER!!!!)

November 30, 2008

I got her!!!! I got her cos I pestered the guard on duty and said it was urgent! Otherwise I wouldn’t have got her till monday!!! I actually squealed….(not in front of the guard, but when I got outside lol) Up1 are always good for delivery times, like Firebox (were when they were a fairly new site lol). Next day! :woot!!:

box

My first ever Clayz figure!

I preordered her like…. yonks ago… actual months…. I think I preordered her in August… and she was due out in September… but it didnt happen…. over….:counts:… 3 months since the order was put in… and almost a month since she was actually released…(Up1 took a while to get her, but I forgive em, cos they rock.)

So! On to the review!! I took over 130 photos! Mucho-overkill!! But it meant I got 31 to post! I might not post all of em though….. depends…

The overall figure is good. I won’t lie, it could be better. But if your a hardcore Haruka fan, you’ll buy this figure over the Toys Works version, because it looks so much more like Haruka-chan. (Although I’m checking up on the pics now…. might be tempted to get this one… since I am a big Haruka fan….)

Kotobukiya Kotomi Ichinose Figure Review – Kotomi-GET!!

October 15, 2008

‘The place changes and goes. Like a wind, like clouds. Like the traces of the heart, no halt to the places.’

A quote found on the back of the box. From the song ‘Ana’ off the Clannad soundtrack. I never really liked the song, but recognised the lyrics from the beginning and from one episode….

Today I got my Kotomi!! I ordered her late-late monday night, she was shipped on tuesday, and arrived today via Parcelforce!! I finally caved… I know I should be saving money for the London Expo… but I have no clue if Kotomi will be available at the Expo… And I didn’t wanna miss out on getting her. I missed out on Fuko on the Play.com site… was not gonna miss out Kotomi… And since there is only one Kotomi Ichinose review on the web that I could find, and it’s on a foreign site, that doing my own would be ok. Took loads of pictures and got a decent amount of decent ones.

Isn’t she cute??!! The photo’s on the other review didnt make her look good, too close some of them, but when you see her in real life she’s sooo cute sweeter! So much like Kotomi in the series!(Clannad for those who don’t know lol.)

Without the props.

Without the props.

Isn’t she darling?! And I’m getting better with the camera I think…. it helps that the lighting in the room was good too. Seeing her like this just makes me wanna rewatch Clannad all over again!! But I’ve got so much to watch!!

Kotomi-chan to the side.

Kotomi-chan to the side.

I hope these photos make you all go out and buy her while you still can! Because she’s totally worth getting! (More pics below here!!!)

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu ep 7 – ‘…I love it!’ – Review

August 24, 2008
I really liked todays episode!! And for some reason… I only just realised how cute Yuuto-kun is!!! Maybe its because he didnt have glasses on the whole episode like normal… but he seems cuter, even with glasses. He’s lovely!!! But not as lovely as Haruka!!

As you know, last week ended on a cliffhanger, which most people could have probably guessed what happened. 

Her dad discovered her hobby…. and of course, her dad is Yakuza-esque. It’s an obvious choice to go with in the series like this. It’s the comedy choice at least.
