あなたのハートににこにこにー♪

It’s July the 22nd, a day significant to the Love Livers as it is the birthday of Yazawa Niko, the buchou of Idol Research Club as well as a part of μ’s, a School Idol Unit.

Despite being one of the oldest of the unit, she looks the youngest amongst the 9-girl-ensemble and proud of it. XDc

To coincide and in celebration of the 25252 Day, Kahotan tweeted a fully painted prototype of Nendoroid version of her! ^~^

提督の Heart を掴むのは、私デース!

The popularity of Kantai Collection, or more commonly referred to its shortened term Kancolle, is going stronger and stronger.

Announcements and releases are flooding the world of figure collection as well as never-ending supplies of merchandise (Unlike the flow of Bauxite XDc) 

Nendoroid_Kancolle_Kongou_01

After the overwhelming demand of Nendo/Figma Shimakaze a few months back, it’s no surprise that many more will come courtesy of GSC, including Nendo/Figma Akagi as well as this gem… :3c

良妻たるもの、節約節約♪

After a couple of months of delay as well as a prolonged delivery due to the galloping holidays, Tama-chan latest scaled figure finally reached ashore, safely docked in my den earlier last week.

After a fatal accident that befell upon Tama-chan (Dollfie Dream ver.), I’ve finally got myself to gether for a session of photo shooting this new subject. :3c

As always, the obligatory box shot.

Printed in a nice pinkish-black hue, the packaging has several display windows in the shape of Sakura (Cherry Blossom) petals all around the box.

Sisterly Love… Winter Sonata

February the 14th, the Saint Valentine’s Day. A day where couples of the world celebrate. Also celebrated by forever-arones all around as the Singles Awareness Day. XDc

The 15th day of the 1st month of the Lunar Year also falls on the same day. Called the 元宵/十五晚 (Yuan Xiao/Chap Goh Meh), which is also known as the Chinese Valentine’s Day. Such coincidence! :3c

A Collection of Kantai Musume

Last year the world was caught in the blast of a new form of moe (Considering by many as the new Touhou Project…) that is the fleet management browser game called Kantai Collection, or Kancolle for short. =w=

Spanning across all types of mediums and forms, the various bishoujo rendition of World War era battleships charmed the likes of the otaku scene, driving its popularity to the max especially in recent Moons. 

Kancolle_Chibi

Merchandise of these lovely Kanmusu, most of them voiced by high-profile seiyuu veterans no less, are popping out like mushrooms ever since.

The recent announcements of a Kancolle anime which will be directed by the same person who did the Nanoha series, as well as a PlayStation Vita version of the game, certainly further accelerates its new-found fame, much to the delight of all Admirals (Or Teitoku aka T, affectionately referred to one another by the players of the game itself…).

撫子だよ~!

A random post while preparing myself for the upcoming Comic Fiesta 2013 this weekend, which is just T-minus 5 days left! w

Anyway, if you’ve followed the Bakemonogatari Second Season since last season, you’ll know about the bubbly middle-schooler being Shaft’d into a pale, radiant goddess/deity.

The recent arc from Koimonogatari even fully moe-fied her appearance with a dash of “Nadeko dayo~”! XDc  

 photo Nadekodayo_Koimonogatari.gif

Why the mention of Sengoku Nadeko you ask?

Well, ever since she’d become Nadeko Snake-sama, I’ve silently cried out for a Nendo and/or Figma version of her. Unfortunately GSC have yet to hint, let alone announce the possibility of her figure creation. :/

Cultural Night After AFA13

Anime Festival Asia 2013 maybe over, but there’s still a social assembly left to attend on the day after… the usual Post AFA gathering of Culture Japan Night.

AFA13_CJN_01

Held at the Kallang Theatre near the Stadium MRT station identical to last year, it was more of a Culture Japan Noon as the event started at roughly 1500 hours until 2000 hours of the day.

Exhibits of CJC13

Continuing from the post-con report from yesterday, today let’s have a look at them displays that were spread across the halls of Culture Japan Convention.

Found a gigantic fluffy tentacles curling around the ticket counter as soon as I approached the destination during Day 2.

So much d’awww-ness tho…  :3c

Attractions of CJC13

Last weekend on the 17th and 18th, on my island one of the larger ACG event of the country happened.

Thanks to the machination cooperation between Danny-san and Penang Global Tourism, many comrades and I from all over the surrounding region and even from overseas were fully enjoying ourselves in the wake of like-minded individuals and one another. 

CJC13_Attractions_01

As what I always did during any past ACG events I’ve attended, I’ve paid the 6th floor of SQCC a visit the night before the actual opening day, the site where Culture Japan was held, as an early reconnaissance along with inspection to find out how I will approach the site.

Not to mention since I’m to display my Servant at one of them booths, I need to make sure the amount of items I needed to bring beforehand. :3c

A Wonderful Hobby Preview of the Summer

Barely half a year since the last event, the 18th Wonderful Festival Summer once again was here to poison the minds of fellow figure collectors and otaku alike last Sunday! 

Figma_Shingeki_no_Kyoujin

Showcasing and announcing many of their upcoming releases and prototypes, it’s no wonder many respected makers strive to prove their worth by bombarding the event with loads and loads of eye-candies. w

III-rd Party of Moe

A local ACG event was held during the last weekend, spanning across the 25th and 26th of May. ^_^ 

Dubbed the Moe-Party Cosplay Workshop III, it’s a small workshop event or something, at least according to my own pal for many years, Donny Choo-san!

Moepa_III_01

Incidentally, it was he who had invited me over as I wasn’t aware of the event itself. The surprise when I was told of it dat time! 0_0

Anyway due to strict schedule I was only be able to attend Day 02 of the event, missing all the on-stage fun on Day 01…

チョコの日

It’s barely several days after the dawn of a new Lunar Year, but the 14th day of the 2nd moon is here once again!

P4G_Valentine

The annual Give Your Big Bro Chocolate Day Saint Valentine’s Day is the very day when girls of all ages prepare chocolates as a gift to their loved ones (Well at least in Japan, everywhere else it’s the guy’s responsibility to dish out hard earned monies on expensive romantic dinners. ^^;)!!

A Wonderful Hobby Preview of the Winter

Falls on the same day, Day 1 of the Lunar New Year also marks the day when major and amateur figure creators from all over Japan gathered  in one large specialised event to show cast all their latest and upcoming releases…

ご主人様の誕生日サービス

I don’t usually celebrate my Coming-to-Earth Day…

But when I do it’s not my plan at all since I always forgot about the day itself every year!

「お帰りなさいませ、ご主人様!」

Ooooh~! Tadaima, Tama-chan!

Culture Japan Noon

When Danny-san announced the news some weeks earlier, it was an incredible surprise to all of us Islanders that he’s going to hold a CJN on our island!

To be held in the St. Joseph’s Novitiate at the Gurney Paragon, Penang, the gathering will begin at a rather odd hour: 1300 – 1800 on a Saturday (Thus Culture Japan Noon instead of Culture Japan Night… XDc)… 0_0

For the uninitiated, St. Jo’s is a heritage building made anew via reconstruction, and is now a hub for community events with rotsa restaurants surrounding it…

改めて、あけお萌え!

Another year ends, and another new year takes its place!

Tama-chan and Kotama-chan, readying themselves by the balcony of my den, eagerly awaits the obligatory fireworks at the strike of 0000 in the mid night…

The calm before the storm fireworks! ^_~

Just a few minutes left until the btoom! ^0^

Post AFA Syndrome: Culture Japan Night

After an incredible experience of merchandise temptation, lovely daughters and mouth-dropping cosplays aside, AFA12 has officially ended…

Well at least for most of them public. Enthusiastic comrades will not let the joy die down so easily… XDc

An Invitation to The Teens

Last weekend spanning across both days, a graduation exhibition for a local design studio was held within an abandoned local shopping mall in conjunction with the Lost Gospel Cosplay Club…

During the event entitled “The Teens”, a cosplay competition and many ACG shinanigans will be held… ^_^

As a guest exhibitor, I was invited to be part of the event by none other than my own pal for many years, Donny Choo-san!

To my surprise, he is part of the LGCC and a cosplayer in the event too! 0_0

Moe ka na…?

Ever since the acquisition of the Moekana learning cards twin packs from AFAMY12 two moons ago, I’ve been pondering of a way to integrate them into my usual figure 4koma shenanigans…

Thus the rise of another 4koma sub series of Osaka! XDc

While pronounced as Moekana, the title of this new series is actually “Moe ka na…?”, meaning “Is (Was) it Moe (Cute)? :3c

A blend between my usual randomness with the Moekana learning cards, Moe ka na…? will expand the standard example given by the cards with lingo used by the Otaku culture, further improve the fun of learning new Hiragana especially to the comrades and fans of Japanese anime and manga.

Mirai of the Future

Who is Suenaga Mirai? She is the kanban musume of Danny Choo-san and Culture:Japan, and soon to have her very own anime production titled Mirai Millennium.

She rose to such fame and popularity in these past years that she’d made many cameo appearances in various anime series and games. :3c

A Figma version of her was made some time ago, and now finally a cutesy rendition of herself in Nendo form… ^_~
