Nendoroid Eli, Nozomi & Nico training outfit version!

Hello!

It has been a while since I’ve visited my own blog. But I find it hard to share my pictures somewhere, so I decided to post them here again.

LL-3rd-years-1

I’ve received the last 3 Love Live Nendoroid training outfit version last month. And with this I have all 9 Love Live Nendoroids. Playing with all 9 of them led me to the conclusion that Nico is definitely the most fun out of all of them. I love how all 9 Nendoroids come with different types of accessories (except Eli, she just has a hair piece). The second awesome thing about these Nendoroids is that they are perfect for photography, because they can be posed in so many ways together. Now if I only had a cute diorama, I would take more pictures. Therefore I’ll try to make one, so I can get more into figure photography. Besides photography, I had decided to make videos of my figures. They’re all up on my Youtube channel and the next video is already in the making!

Here’s the review of Eli, Nozomi and Nico. Enjoy!

Unexpected loot from a friend!

Hello whoever reads this!

I haven’t visited my blog in a while, but I’m back. I’ve been busy recording videos of my hauls and a review. You can watch them here, please subscribe if you like it! I really appreciate every support. c:

Anyway, here’s the backstory behind this loot. My friend went to Tokyo for 2 months and of course, I wanted to see Japanese goodies. So I had sent her some money to spend for me in Japan and today the parcel arrived!

I have no idea how she was able to put all this stuff inside. The box was packed in pink paper with a bunny on the front and a bear on the back.

Food
We’ll start with all the food that was inside.

IMG_6622 IMG_6623

Chocolate doughnut candy! It has 5 different flavors and every doughnut has 2 different shapes. The flavors are almond, cookie, choco banana, strawberry and flour (?).

IMG_6619

Love Live’s Maki! But wait.. Maki chips? Maki caramel corn! I have no idea what that is and what it’ll taste like.

IMG_6620

I guess this is some kind of chips. I do not know what they’re showing on the package. It looks like something that tastes like meat or fish covered in flour.

IMG_6621

The super famous matcha tea Kit Kat! I will definitely try one tomorrow, they look super tasty.

IMG_6642

One of my favorite cookies! I had found these back then at an anime convention, because I was hungry. They taste very salty when you put it in your mouth and when the cookie starts to melt on your tongue it tastes like those children/baby cookies which also melt on your mouth because they get so soft. And yes, I like salty and yes I like baby cookies so this is a great combination.

Merch
Anime/cute stuff related merch!

IMG_6630

A Rilakkuma pouch! Not sure what I will use it for, but the outside of the pouch is super fluffy!

IMG_6634

Gashapon! She has got me two.

A hamster with a leaf on his head and apple pie with a puff of whipped cream. I like hamsters and I like apple pie, this is perfect! The size is actually pretty nice for Nendoroids.

IMG_6637

In the other gashapon is a Nico key chain! I hung her next to my Kotori key chain on my dream catcher. I just hang them somewhere in my room since I would break or lose key chains if they would actually hung on my keys.

IMG_6633 IMG_6632

A super cute Maki cup! I will definitely drink lots of water from it this summer.

IMG_6627

More Love Live?!

A Maki long clear poster from TatePos!

IMG_6662

Nana volume 1 and Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun volume 1! I actually wanted to read Nana, because I had seen the anime and the same story goes for Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun. Although I can read Japanese (only Hiragana and Katakana lolol), I barely can translate anything. So this will be fun.

Random

IMG_6625 IMG_6626

A free magazine which had a map of Akihabara in it, it showed stores that sell anime merch and other nerd stuff. Hello Kiss-Shot!

IMG_6640

Fake eyelashes and a face mask. Two things I barely use in my life, but I wanted to give it a try.

IMG_6641

A pen to write pretty in Japanese! Or at least, I hope I can write in Japanese with this pen.

Figures
I’ve kept the best for last. The figures!

IMG_6643 IMG_6644IMG_6645IMG_6648IMG_6649IMG_6650IMG_6653

Shimakaze from Kantai Collection by SEGA! Although Shimakaze has a lot of figures made by big manufacturers, I really prefer this one. This one might not be the prettiest or has not the highest quality, but it does have the best pose. Or at least, I preferred a more dynamic pose and SEGA’s Shimakaze had it! I like her size, she might be 1/8 or 1/8,5. Her base is her biggest con, but it probably can’t be helped because of her pose. I just hope she won’t lean, because she’s a prize figure.

IMG_6654 IMG_6655 IMG_6656 IMG_6657 IMG_6658 IMG_6659 IMG_6660

Battleship Princess or Senkan Seiki, also from Kantai Collection by Taito! Apparently my friend had a lot of trouble finding this figure. But she did find her in the end and I love it! Her crazy base makes up for how tiny she is. Her size should be around a 1/12, because her proportions look like Figma proportions. While I was trying to get her into the base, I kept looking at the hand and at some point the hand freaked me out a little. Because the sculpt of that hand is very good.

Here you can see the huge size difference between the two prize figures.

This is the end of the blog post! Thank you for reading.

Loot: FuRyu Kuubo Wo-Kyuu (Wo Class) from Kantai Collection!

Hello everyone!
Today we’ll be looking at FuRyu’s Wo Class figure. Wo Class is from the enemy fleet of the Kantai Collection browser game (also has an anime adaptation!). She has a very interesting and unique design, so I decided a few days before her release to pick her up! Even though I’ve also ordered a scale version of her (Good Smile Company’s Wo Class), I just want more Wo Class!

Wo Class
She’s only 19 cm tall (including her base) and she was released the 26th of February. Wo Class often pops up for around ¥1500 – ¥2000 on second-hand websites if you decide to pick her up!

Loot: Nendoroid More After Parts part 1 and part 2!

Hello everyone! (Somehow the pictures ended up looking crappy, click on the pictures if you want to see the picture in high quality!)
Today I’m going to show you an extra set to dress up your Nendoroids. They’re called Nendoroid More After Parts, there were 2 sets available and I’ve bought both! The sets were fairly cheap in my opinion and they were definitely worth it. It was a lot of fun to dress up my Nendoroids and give them a different look than they’d normally have.

This is what the boxes look like.

Loot: Nendoroid #204 Menma!

Hello everyone!

It has been a few days since I’ve posted something. But I finally found time to represent to you guys an adorable little girl from Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day (no Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai). I’ve ordered a lot from the Good Smile Company brand. With Sinon and Menma I have several other GSC pre-orders waiting. Unfortunately, all 3 pre-orders from late February are delayed! We’ll see Nagato (Kantai Collection), Sinon (Sword Art Online II) and Wo Class (Kantai Collection) in a few months. I’m trying to hunt down the Wo Class Nendoroid for this month, because I really want her!

Now back to the special girl that we’ll look at today. I did  try something new, called a video review. You can watch it here if you prefer a video of Menma!

Loot: My first Nendoroid, #452 Sinon!

Hello guys!

It has been a little while, seems like the winter season is a busy one! There’s lots of stuff to do (especially in Guild Wars 2). Today I’ll be chatting a little bit about one of my most favorite characters ever, Sinon! I already own a prize figure of her and I couldn’t stop myself from getting a cute chibi version of Sinon. I present to you.. Nendoroid Sinon from GoodSmileCompany!
