Some Announcements: Blog Appearance, Meetup & New Games Category…

Hi Everybody,

How have you been?

We’re almost at the end of the year, which means yearly review and 2015 objectives. Well I know I haven’t been very active this year for several reasons #:-S , however I decided to correct that and bring more content and cool stuffs for you, my lovely and very understanding readers  :"> .

So, as I said before, just blogging about figures is boring. Therefore I plan to add more stuffs as long as they are related to the hobbies spirit. Sure I won’t post things related to sewing or knitting  ;)) , but well I will extend the scope of topics discussed to toys, write more about goodies whether it comes to jewellery or books and, last but not least I am starting a new games category ;) . And here I want to stop and add something. Sure I will write about video games, but the thing is that this category is not just about video games. We’ll be also discussing mobile games, social games and even boardgames. As long as they are interesting and funny, I really don’t mind at all :) .

Boargames

Oh and yes, I will be making some changes on the blog appearance. Nothing major (I would love to, but I don’t have time, unfortunately #:-S ) just some small changes here and there.

Finally, as I was writing last time, our first meet up has been scheduled. So if you’re living nearby Hong Kong, feel free to join us on November 27th (Tursday) at the Charly Brown Cafe, 58-60 Cameroon Road, TST. You can chat with me and the others by joining our group here. Hope to see you there!

That’s it for today!

See you  :*

Yes My Lord: Kotobukiya, Megahouse, Medicom & Kuroshitsuji Book of Circus Figures Gallore…

Hi Everybody :-h ,

How was your week-end?

Yes I know, Monday mornings are somewhat annoying, reason why you should always start the week with things you like. At the moment I’m watching one of my favourite anime , Mononoke (I’m still trying to figure out what’s happened in episode 6 8-> ), and writing this blog post.  ;)

So today, we’re going to talk about Kuroshitsuji or Black Butler for our US friends. “Book of Circus” was so good and refreshing that I guess at this point, we all want some figures of sebas-chan or cieeeru in our collection (and I try to be reasonable here, truth is we want them all   ;)) ).

So to help us in our quest, I put together the latest announcements below:

* Megahouse – GEM Series Sebastian Michaelis

I put this one first become it’s the one I like the most. I love the paler skin tone, the devilish red eyes as well as the terribly attractive wicked face expression. I have always been a big fan of the GEM series (even if I don’t own any) and well, this one is definitely a must have. I guess we’ll have  a Cieru coming soon too.

Figure is around 240mm tall and will be available in April 2015. Will put the pre-order links at the end of the post.

Anyway, some pics below, more on Megahouse website.

* Kotobukiya – Artfx Series Sebastian Michaelis & Ciel Phantomhive

This Sebastian looks less evil and much cuter with the frame.  Cieru looks also kind of cute. If I am richer at release date, I’ll get both and display them next to each other  :"> .

Ciel is around 180cm tall and is scheduled for March 2015. Sebastian is around 250mm tall and will be released in April 2015.

Amiami has exclusive version of these (with additional/different accessories) but no pictures yet it seems. Let’s wait.

Feel free to check more pictures of Cieru and Sebastian on Kotobukia website.

* Medicom Toy – RAH 689 Sebastian Michaelis

This one has been announced for quite a while now. RAH Sebastian is around 300mm tall and will be available in June 2015 ( that’s quite a long wait actually). As usual, the best butler in the world will come with several additional parts as well as candlestick, tea pot, teacup, tray etc.

So as you can see, there are several figures scheduled for next year. Please check Amiami or Hobby Search websites for Kuroshitsuji Book of Circus related goodies. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed :-P .

That’s it for today.

See you  :)

Announcement: New Figure Meetup Group in Hong Kong!

Hi My dear friends  :-h ,

Some of you might think that I’m a very lazy young woman   ;)) , considering the updates frequency. But the truth is that there’s a lot of work behind the scenes  :-P . I am tired of writing just about figures release, and I took “some time off” to figure out how to provide richer and better content that would be valuable to you, my dear readers :"> .

One of my first resolution is to be more active offline. I want to meet more collectors/ enthusiasts/ Jojo fans, talk with them, let them share their opinion, expectations, regrets etc.

So, I’ve created a Meetup group for Toys & Figures collectors living in HK. Feel free to join,  attend the scheduled events, chat with us and help me to create a better content for this blog. Check the page for more info.

Hope to meet you in person very soon. Until then take care!

Cool Anime Suggestions (Up August 2014)….

Hey Everybody,

It has been a while! How have you been?  :)

As for me I’m ok. Was a bit melancholic lately, raison why there wasn’t much updates here: too much work, not much rewards… Anyway… The thing is that now I feel much better   :-P and I think it’s time go back to work.

For today, just a short post about some cool anime suggestions like I did last time.  Before I start, I highly recommend Jojo Stardust Crusaders anime series :) . We are already at episode 20, so if you haven’t started yet, please feel free do so. Check the related post here.

1) Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus

Kuroshitsuji book of circus

Yes yes yeeees….  :"> Our sublime, handsome & mysterious evil butler is back with Cieru for a new adventure. As the title says, this time things take place in a circus with a mysterious yet suspicious group of entertainers. OMG I can’t possibly convey how much I love this series and its settings. The opening theme (ENAMEL by Syd – see below) is awesome, like the two previous ones. The ending is good too, but I’m not super fond of it. Well, I don’t want to spoil so I will let you discover the series. If you don’t know where to watch it, check animefreak. More info about the series here. Enjoy!

 

2) Sengoku Basara Judge End

Third season is focusing on the Sekigahara battle: Tokugawa Ieyasu vs Ishida Mitsunari. But who cares? Well…. we all know that we shouldn’t take very seriously the historical references in Sengoku Basara ;)) . The thing is that Date is back, Sanada is back and well… Date is as cool, even cooler than ever (except at the beginning though) :-x . More characters are involved as well and we get to see Motonari manipulation skills. To my opinion Ishida is a stupid puppet so far and Tokugawa is a dreamer but well, let’s see how things will go.

This time I don’t like too much the opening, so I’m putting back the one of the first series: my favourite. You can watch the series at animefreak. More info about the series in SB wikia.

 

3) Persona 4 The Golden Animation

Well you know I love Persona :) . So the animation is back this time with a new character named Marie. Setting, story and main characters seems same as Persona 4. Let’s see how different it will be from the original series. Check the episodes on animefreak. More info on the series here.

That’s it for today. Hope you’ll find this list useful. If you have some other interesting anime to recommend or just some comments, see you below.

Enjoy your summer vacations!  :)

See you   :*

Cool Anime Suggestions…

Hello :) ,

How have you been since last time? Yeah I know, it has been a while I haven’t updated this blog :(( .

The fact is that I don’t have much time on hand,  I’m a little tired of blogging about figures and I am getting perhaps a little lazy  :-P . I have nothing to say for this post, but as it has been a while I haven’t posted anything, I’ll just pretend to write something interesting (reminds me some Gintama episodes).

So here are a few anime you can add on your list:

1) Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Stardust Crusaders

Well… I told you I had nothing interesting to say. Of course I would recommend the new Jojo Anime Series. This blog is at 90% about Jojo anyway ;)) . We’re only at episode 2, but it’s quite good so far. Will wait a bit before writing a review.

2) Bayonetta Bloody Fate 

Only episode 1 has been released so far, and it’s basically the summary of the game, for those who played it a couple of years before  :) . It is good and I liked it a lot. Hope there will be more coming soon. Looking forward to see other adventures of Cereza & Jeanne.

3) Hoozuki-kun no Resetsu

Lol this one is very funny. It is in hell and well, I love those demons and their minions a lot. You should take a look, it quite cool to relax on week-end (not as cool as Gintama though)

Hoozuki no Reitestu Anime

I’ve heard some cool reviews about Nobunaga The Fool, but haven’t tried yet. And you, do you have any interesting anime to recommend?

Enjoy your Easter Holidays!  :)

See you   :*

PS: I still post some figures news on our Facebook page. Check from time to time!
