Tohsaka Rin ~Unlimited Blade Works~ 1/7 (GSC)

Your favourite, twin-tail, grade-A zettai ryouiki tsundere, Tohsaka Rin, looking all badass in the Unlimited Blade Works route. More like grade S zettai ryouiki! This is just the first of a long series of post-unboxing, backlogged TYPE-MOON figure reviews. After moving to my new place, I set up a nice corner of the room for figure photography and took a bunch of review-style photo sets of figures as I re-unboxed them. Most of these figures are second hand, B/B grade, so keep that in mind when going through the photos. Info – Type: PVC figure – Character: Tohsaka Rin – …

Saber ~Triumphant Excalibur~ 1/7 (GSC)

This time, it’s the original Saber from Fate/stay night, releasing her Invisible Air and readying to strike you down with Excalibur. Rawr, rawr, I’m Saber Blue, the original and most boring of all the Sabers! This is just the first of a long series of post-unboxing, backlogged TYPE-MOON figure reviews. After moving to my new place, I set up a nice corner of the room for figure photography and took a bunch of review-style photo sets of figures as I re-unboxed them.

Maid Cafes in the USA

Yesterday, a friend of mine living in New York linked me to a new maid cafe (website here) opening in downtown Chinatown. While I’ve been to Japanese maid cafes in my previous travels, I’ve yet to visit a permanent one in the US. Which got me thinking, why? And yet, I also knew the answer; Japanese-style maid cafes cannot be successful businesses in the US. And here’s my long rant about why.

Akicon 2013

A few weeks ago (Oct 25-27th), I attended Akicon 2013 as my first big anime convention since moving to Washington last year. In the northwest, there are two large anime conventions, Sakura-con and Akicon. I somehow managed to miss both last year, but made sure to attend this year (and plan on attending Sakura-con 2014). 5,036 total views, 3 views today

Takuechi Takashi’s Pre-TYPE-MOON Doujinshi

Takeuchi Takashi (武内崇) is a Japanese artist best known as the illustrator and co-founder of TYPE-MOON. In otherwords, he’s the artist behind all the characters from Tsukihime, Fate/stay night, and Kara no Kyoukai (yes, he drew your waifu). But before TYPE-MOON became a commercial company in 2004 with the release of Fate/stay night, TYPE-MOON was a doujin circle. And before TYPE-MOON became a doujin circle in 2000 with the release of Tsukihime, Takeuchi and Nasu were publishing other doujinshis under various circle names, including Bamboo Broom (竹箒) and CoCiCaCe CLUB (腰掛倶楽部). The following are some of the pre-2000 doujinshis drawn …

Enjoy the photos! ^_^ 5,084 total views, 3 views today

For the full Saber Lily DD unboxing and review, see my previous post Saber Lily, the Princess of Knights In between unboxing and putting together Saber Lily (see link above), I took some time to take nice, clean pictures of her in her various outfit.

Saber Lily Dollfie Dream (Volks)

Photo warning: This is a VERY photo heavy review. If you just want to see Saber Lily in her completed outfits, see the photoshoot post While I’m not all that much of a Saber fan (as opposed to most TYPE-MOON collectors), there is one version of Saber that I do really like (purely due to her character design). and that would be Saber Lily. Back when I was thinking about creating a custom Dollfie Dream, I was looking through all the existing Volks DDs and the Saber Lily DD caught my attention. Originally the high price, rarity, and poor official …
