Bishoujo Statue: Juri Han


My bishoujo-collection got a new member some time ago. She's Juri Han, the baddest of the badasses from the video game called Street Fighter IV! I'm not a huge fan of Street Fighter games (TEKKEN FTW!!) but if I play it with my friends, I always play as Juri. She's South Korean and fights using Taekwondo. Her design is gorgeous and she's just the perfect villainess! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) ♥


Box art. Shunya Yamashita is the god of anime/manga art!!


With every bishoujo figure you get few different plastic decorations you can add on the stand. It's super nice detail in my opinion. I put the one with Juri's picture on my stand.


Here you can barely see the decoration on the base.



Isn't she beautiful?! I absolutely LOVE the color palette of this figure! Her pose is super cool and suits Juri perfectly! That spider on her back is creepy cool and I love how it's "legs" squeezes her boobs giving them extra softness. Mm-mm!! (Sorry, I sound like some pervert... XD) The hair is also very well done and the light hits it beautifully making it look more detailed. The paintwork on her skin is also top quality! Her back and belly looks so real! (ノ゚ 0゚)ノ~



Close ups of her goodies! ♥


Her face is so well done and I love that tongue BUT there's a big minus of this figure as well... She can only be photographed from one angle. Her face looks gorgeous while taking photos like these in this post, but when you turn the figure even a little bit and try to take photo straight of her face, this happens:


I think she looks a bit herpty-derp from this angle. Her eyes and eyebrows looks weird and I think they made a big mistake with this. But not that it matters when everything else is so great with her! I just need to position her to the shelf so that no one can see her from the wrong angle... XDD


Photographed like this she's one sexy villainess! She just needs to work her best angles like all real models do! Haha! XD

Here's a small demonstration of Juri in action:

My summer WonFes wishlist!

It's that time of the year again when all the figure collectors gather to Makuhari Messe convention center in Japan to get a glimpse of the newest figures and model kits! In other words it's this summer's Wonder Festival 2015!

As usual there were many new figures that I need to get in my collection and here I've listed my highlights of the event. Let's begin! o/

Love Live! School idol Movie nendoroid petit girls! When I first saw the sneak peak of these I almost had a heart attack since I thought they're going to make yet another set of nendoroids. Luckily these are smaller nendoroid petit-figures which can be bought by set and with a much cheaper price than regular nendoroids. These movie outfits are one of my favourites so this is an instant must-buy!! (Eli with her hair untied... (人´∀`*))

Goddamn Alter is going to kill me and take all my money... and the saddest part is that I will cladly give it to them with no regrets!! (╥ᆺ╥;) Alter makes the most prettiest and best quality Love Live-figures that I have ever seen and the price tag for these beauties makes you wanna desperately win the lottery... X"D I'm going to get at least 4 of these (Eli, Nozomi, Kotori and Rin) but after seeing the painted prototype of Nico I kinda want that too... And then I would only have 4 left so........ I'm going to eat nothing but noodles for the rest of my life! Goodbye munnies, it was nice knowing ya!

And then there was this one......... Σ(꒪◊꒪ ) *nosebleed*
I CAN'T EVEN EXPRESS MY FEELINGS ENOUGH FOR THIS ELI!! She's the most gorgeous, prettiest, hottest, cutest piece of plastic I have ever seen!! I couldn't be more happier to get this into my collection! The waifu-power is strong in this one! ♥ ♥

Then there were these super cute Sonicos! The first one is Racing Queen Sonico and OMG she's cute!! I'm a sucker for racing figures and finally being able to get racing Sonico into my collection is yet again one of my dreams come true! Her body looks extra soft and that face is one of the cutest I've ever seen in any Sonico figure (+ twin tails ofc!!) The other figure is Banpresto's prize figure and I can't wait to see it painted!! She's going to look stunning! I love that little starcloud she's skating on and look at those cute cakes...! So adorable! (> ω <) THAT'S how you make a great prize figure!

And of course there was a couple previews as well. I'm not so sure about that first one, I gotta see it first to make a final decision but the second one on the other hand..... SHE'S A MUST BUY. I was so bummed when I saw this love bomber Sonico garage kit a while ago, because I knew I could never have it. But luckily Ques Q heard my prayers and now they are going to release a pre-painted scale figure of it as well!! YAHHOOOO~!!

These Miku's are the only one's that I got my eyes on. The first one is from Rage of Bahamut - series and I was sooooo happy to hear that she's going to be released as a figure. I love the style in RoB and this Miku looks super pretty as well!! That other Miku on the other hand... I'm still kinda struggling wheter to get it or not. Her limbs gives me a bit of a daddy long legs - vibes and I think she would look much better if they would've pose it horizontally. Now she kinda looks like she's doing some weird ass kung-fu moves or something.... ( u__u )

 Only few new nendoroids this time! I'm such a huge fan of Yuru Yuri and I'm so happy that they're going to release Yui next (the first picture)!! I only have Kyouko right now but I try to find Akari from Japan so I can have all of the girls when Yui and Chinatsu are released! The second nendoroid, Hestia, is kinda on the maybe pile right now. I want to see more of her before making the final decision. Last but not least is the Big Boss from MGS V! We already have Solid Snake so of course we need Big Boss as well! Although I'd have preferred the MGS3 version over this one, but beggars can't be choosers and this is what we get! Haha!

Umaruuuuuun~~ She's just too adorable to pass by!!

Last but not least are these two. The first one is Yuzuruha from Oboro Muramasa-game. I hope to get Kongiku figure at some point as well because these two would look so gorgeus together!! Can't wait to see the paint job on Yuzuruha, I can only imagine how gorgeous she'll look! The other figure is Nakiri Erina from Shokugeki no Souma. I'm not a huge fan of Erina, but damn, this figure of her just looks unbelievably detailed and reflects her personality perfectly! So she's going to the maybe pile as well... XD

* * * * * * * * *

That's it for this years WonFest! Now I need to work even harder if I want to get all these figures and still be able to eat.... ehehehe. (not funny!) X"DD Did you find anything intresting from this summer's Wonder Festival?

Until next time ~ !!

My summer anime list ★

I was supposed to make spring anime list some time ago, but never got around to actually do it so I decided to skip straight to summer animes. XD Few years back there was a looong period of time when I didn't watch anime almost at all, but since last winter I got hooked on anime again and nowadays we try to watch new episodes of our favorite shows as soon as they are aired. I mostly enjoy slice-of-life and comedy shows but on some rare occasions totally different kinds of shows might catch my eye (i.e. Kill la Kill). But now on to the list we go!

Spring leftovers:

Shokugeki no Souma
(comedy, ecchi, school, shounen)

The story centers on Yukihira Souma, a middle school student who is determined to surpass his father’s culinary skills. One day, his father decides to close down their family restaurant and hone his skills in Europe. Before leaving he enrolls Souma in an elite culinary school that is extremely difficult to enter with a graduation rate of only 10 percent. Will Souma be able to improve his skills, or will the kitchen prove to be too hot?

OMG this show is so brilliant!! Pat has read the manga and when he showed me the first episode of the anime adaptation of it I was instantly hooked! This anime is so extravagant and the animation is  top notch! All the main characters are funny, lovely (♥ Tadokoro ♥) and well balanced with each other, and the food looks absolutely delicious! If I have to say something negative about the series, it's the fact that this anime will make you hungry! Haha! If you've yet to know what a foodgasm is, you'll learn about it after the first episode of SnS!

* * * * * * * * * *

Ore Monogatari!!
(comedy, slice of life, romance, school, shoujo)

Takeo Gouda is a giant guy with a giant heart. He spends his days peacefully with his super-popular-with-girls, yet insensitive childhood friend, Sunagawa. But one day when Takeo saves a girl named Yamato from a harasser on the train, his love life suddenly takes an incredible turn! Could this be the beginning of spring for Takeo?

This anime reminds me of Pat and me in so many ways, that there just isn't any other option than to love the show! I know it might be silly to compare your own relationship with some anime, but for me it makes the anime even more interesting and special if it has similarities with my life. (>w<) The story itself is really light and every episode just makes you smile like a jerk from the beginning to the end. Takeo's and Yamato's  relationship is so goddamn adorable that it makes me feel super warm and fuzzy on the inside every friggin' time! I hope this show never ends! Haha!

* * * * * * * * * *

New titles:

Himouto! Umaru-chan
(comedy, slice of life, school)

Umaru is a renowned beautiful 16-year-old girl in town, living with her elder brother Taihei. She acts a perfect sister with a kind heart, intelligence and popularity, who everybody admires. So who would believe how true Umaru is at home? Sleeping, gaming, watching TV, eating junk food, drinking cola… that's almost all she does at home, leaving all the housework to her brother.

Pat says that this show is an accurate documentation of my life! XD And I must admit that I see a lot of similarities in my and Umaru's personalities... Don't know if that's a good thing, though! Ehehe... Anyhow, Umaru-chan is a great comedy and fun to watch! There's only two episodes out so I don't know much about the story yet and I have only read few volumes of the manga as well. Video games,  closet otaku, junk food, funny jokes... what else do you need? This is one of my favorite anime for this summer! (( I even pre-ordered Umaru nendoroid before I knew nothing about the series! ))

* * * * * * * * * * 

Gakkou Gurashi!
(mystery, horror, school, slice of life, supernatural)

Takeya Yuki is in love with the school. For her, it's a wonderful place, where she enjoys her school activities, especially the activities of her club: School Life Club. The club has Rii-chan as the president, Kurumi-chan as another member, and the teacher, Megu-nee, always there for them. Yes, she is in love with her school... in her mind. Because, for her, the reality of the school and their club's activities is way too hard to be perceived...

I've only seen the first episode of this but it was really enjoyable! And kinda shocking at the end of the episode, so it left me wanted to know more... right now! I don't know if this is going to be an upbeat, happy-go-lucky anime or a some sort of horror drama so I'm really curious about this one! At least the characters are super cute (the main character looks like a young Sonico! >3<).

* * * * * * * * * *

Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai
(comedy, ecchi, school)

Sixteen years after the "Law for Public Order and Morals in Healthy Child-Raising" banned coarse language in the country, Tanukichi Okuma enrolls in the country's leading elite public morals school and is soon invited into the Anti-Societal Organization (SOX) by its founder, Ayame Kajou. As a member blackmailed into joining by Ayame, Tanukichi ends up taking part in obscene acts of terrorism against the talented student council president Anna (for whom Tanukichi has a crush on).

After the first episode I think this will be the funnies anime on this season! There is a lot of dirty jokes and perverted humor without it being too gross. XD The other main protagonist is a girl with a panties on her face so it can't be nothing else than a great fun! I don't know much about the story yet, but if you don't get upset about dirty jokes I really recommend to check this one out! Laughs guaranteed!

* * * * * * * * * *

Kangoku Gakuen 
(comedy, ecchi, school)

On the outskirts of Tokyo stands Hachimitsu Private Academy, a storied all-girls boarding school for elite young women full of potential and good breeding. But as the new school year rolls around, one tradition is going out the window: For the first time in the school's long history, boys are being allowed to enroll. But on the first day of school, only five boys make the cut. Kiyoshi Fujino, one of the lucky few, is thrilled by this discovery, his heart leaping with joy at the thought of being surrounded by all those girls, day in and day out. But little does he know of the shocking fate that awaits him.

I have read the manga which is a combination of funny and sometimes really dirty things, so I'm eager to see how loyal this anime will be to the original work. XD The first episode was fun to watch and the characters were much like in the manga! The facial expressions were almost identical which is a great detail in my opinion! But now I just want to see how far the anime adaptation dares to go... Haha! 

* * * * * * * * * *

Bikini Warriors
(action, comedy, ecchi, fantasy)

Set in an RPG world with swords and magic, warriors must form a party to defeat the demon lord. But, these warriors are all wearing Bikini armor!

I knew right away that this is going to be a perfect anime for me! Pretty girls with big boobies and almost nothing to wear! Perfect! Haha! No but seriously I was surprised how funny this short series actually was! The episodes runs about 4 minutes so it's quick fun for everyone! I would love to show the first episode to all the feminists who complain about female characters armors (in games or in anime/cartoons/movies) which shows too much skin, and see how they react to it! I'm an awful person I know... Sorry! XD

* * * * * * * * * *

Other series I watch:

Miss Monochrome - The Animation 2: Cute and fun short series!
Wakaba*Girl: Super cute and kawaii and rainbows and lollipops! Really laid-back series!
Wooser no Sono Higurashi: Mugen-hen: Second season of Wooser! Funny and quite "no rhyme no reason" series.

What are you watching on this season?

Princess Sonico

Long time no see my lovely readers! How have you all been? ヾ( ̄◇ ̄)ノ
Sorry for my long absence and the lack of blog posts and replies to your lovely comments! I guess I'm having some sort of inspiration block and small burnout going on right now and my poor blog is the one to suffer from it... After my graduation I've been working like crazy so my freetime's been almost non-existent and all the spare time goes to repaying my sleep debt or playing games just to relax. ( ´•︵•` ) Luckily I only need to endure this until next October and after that I'm going to find a new job with normal working hours! Haha!

But that's enough of the real life problems. More important is that I haven't touched my camera for over a month (shame on me!) and today I decided that it's time to move my lazy ass and go outside to take photos of my newest Sonico. So here you go!



So here is the beautiful princess Snow White Sonico from FuRyu. She is from the same fairytale series as this Queen of Hearts Sonico I reviewed some time ago. That "sexified" version of Snow White's dress is really pretty and suits Sonicos style perfectly without being too trashy.... though many might disagree with me on this, but oh well! XD I absolutely LOVE these fairytale themed Sonicos and hope that FuRyu makes a lot more of them in the future (but seriously, new face templates would be much appreciated as well)! What do you think about her? I'd definetly choose this Snow White over the original! Huhuhu! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)



She's my perfect, little summer girl~!!

* * * * * * * *

I really try to get back on track with this blog again, and to ease the workload I decided to start writing only in english from now on. I hope that it's not a problem to my finnish readers! (๑•́ ₃ •̀๑)
Until next time~!!
