Updates and Upcoming Plans!

Alright so I’ve been slacking.  I’ve been meaning to, or at least attempting, get some new posts up but I get distracted pretty easily now that I am free from any school work.  But never fear, I’ll get started on something soon(ish).   Maybe… In terms of what I’ve been doing, so far I caught up on most of the Anime I had to skip over the school year.  Considering bringing back the ole Anime posts …

ARTBOOK: To LOVEru Darkness – Harem Gold (Yabuki Kentarou)

ARTBOOK: To LOVEru Darkness – Harem Gold (Yabuki Kentarou)

Well guys I guess my old age is finally catching up to me since this was something I started 2 months ago but forgot to finish.  To my defense though I did start this the week my home was getting fumigated with finals week right afterwards.  Though it is kind of sad it took a figure preorder to remind me that I had not finished this.  What is “this” actually you ask?  Well I am a …

Top Five of 2015!

Top Five of 2015!

I was originally not planning on doing this sort of post but after some time, mainly just sitting around doing nothing, I figured “Why not?”.  This is my personal top five(s) list of 2015 consisting of several different categories!  Again this is my own personal list and is by no means anything official or really reputable.  The categories are: Top Five Figures (Purchased) of 2015, Top Five Missed Figures of 2015, Top Five Preordered Figures …

Anime Expo 2015: Exhibit Hall, Random News, and Loot!

Anime Expo 2015: Exhibit Hall, Random News, and Loot!

So it was once again that time of the year for Anime Expo!  I know I was saying last year that I was not interested in going again this year but after a tough and long school year I really needed a mini vacation and an inexpensive one at that.  So unlike the past few years I actually spent all four days at the expo at a block hotel, the JW Marriott.  Scored a really …

2014 EKING’S YEAR END REVIEW!

2014 EKING’S YEAR END REVIEW!

2014 is reaching it’s end.  Really does seem like it was yesterday that this year started.   2014 definitely felt like it flew past really quickly.  Asides from my “real-life” goals (getting into a MBA program and quitting my dead end job) I did I accomplished quite a bit in terms of my hobbies. Sure I made some blogging promises that I didn’t keep, namely Anime posts, but I did try to keep up posts …

UNBOXING: Nanoha StrikerS’s Yagami Hayate Summer Holiday Figure Unboxing!

UNBOXING: Nanoha StrikerS’s Yagami Hayate Summer Holiday Figure Unboxing!

The second of the three figure unboxings that I will be posting throughout this week, going to try to stretch these out throughout the week.  This is a figure I really was not expecting to be released honestly.  From having a definite release date to not having one I sort of expected this figure to be stuck in delay limbo.  But I guess Alter proved me wrong here.  This figure of course is part of …

PREVIEW: To LOVEru Darkness’s Yuuki Mikan Swimsuit Figure by Alter!

PREVIEW:  To LOVEru Darkness’s Yuuki Mikan Swimsuit Figure by Alter!

Since I got rid of some of my preorder stock of course I had to add more to make up for it…  Seriously though one of my favorite Animu imoutos has to be the delicious Mikan from To LOVEru Darkness.  I just simply love her as much as I do with Momo, whom is by far my favorite of the girls but that aside…  I skipped out on a few Mikan figures already.  I even …

UNBOXING: Asuna (Titania ver.) From SAO by Max Factory!

Well I spent all day yesterday (Saturday) taking photos of three new figures…  That’s right THREE FIGURES!  This is the first of the three figures, a figure that has been delayed multiple times throughout this year.  This is Asuna from Sword Art Online dressed in her Titania “slave” outfit brought to us by Max Factory!

UNBOXING: Kurosaki Mea from To LOVEru Darkness by Max Factory!

UNBOXING: Kurosaki Mea from To LOVEru Darkness by Max Factory!

Wow it sort of feels like it’s been over two months since my last unboxing… Well it HAS been over two months, thank the summer figure delays for that…  But it’s mid-September and I finally got in one of my orders in!  Bout time I’d say!  This is a figure I’ve looking forward to getting my hands on (think I say that about most of the figures I get…) ever since I got my hands …

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works TV Series and Heaven’s Feel Film!

Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works TV Series and Heaven’s Feel Film!

I generally don’t like posting about news but this is something really exciting at least to me.  One of my favorite visual novels of all time has to be Fate/Stay Night (FSN) by Type Moon.  The series is highly popular spawning multiple Anime series and spin-offs, several video games, and lots of merchandise such as figures!  Not to sound too much like a hipster but I’ve been a fan of the series since probably the very …

Sword Art Online II 1-3

Sword Art Online II 1-3

As you can imagine I was pretty reluctant to give the second season of Sword Art Online (SAO) a chance with my known hatred for the ever so popular series.  But I usually stand by my rule of giving an Anime series a three episodes watch before I completely give up on it.  So here’s my completely bias impressions and opinions of the first three episodes of SAO II!  And yes I sort of expect you …

Move Aside Suguha! Sinon from SAO II Is Here! Kotobukiya Figure~

Move Aside Suguha!  Sinon from SAO II Is Here!  Kotobukiya Figure~

Think I have made it clear my hatred for Sword Art Online.  The only two things I liked from the series were “rape victim” Asuna and Suguha/Leafa.  Everything else about the series is completely inferior to Reki Kawahara’s other “game Anime” Accel World which sadly is virtually unknown to many.  But I’ll save that rant for some other time.  This post is about a new character that emerged from SAO II that I will have to add to …

Aldnoah.Zero 1-2

Aldnoah.Zero 1-2

!WARNING POST MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS! It’s been a while since an Anime has captured my attention and left me wanting more.  Aldnoah.Zero is definitely that Anime this season.  What else would you expect from a series with a production pedigree that boasts not only animation from A1-Pictures but original work from Gen Urobuchi of Fate/Zero fame?! Immediately within the opening minutes of the first episode you get the feeling that Aldnoah.Zero is going to be vastly different from all other shows …
