Kyoto, Haru by RubiconHearts

Kyoto, Haru
Takeuchi Takashi (Type-Moon)
Kobayashi Jin (School Rumble)

RubiconHearts is a doujin circle comprised of Takeuchi Takeshi of Type-Moon and Kobayashi Jin, artist of School Rumble. They aim to produce printed works of art that cannot yet be rivalled by digital technology, and their first work is Kyoto, Haru, (Kyoto, Spring) released at Comiket 77. Did they succeed? I'd say so.

One Year - Update

One Year

So, it's been a year since this blog was started!

I'm currently away from home for a few months doing some work, hence the lack of updates recently. I'm back home in a couple of weeks though, and some nice stuff has arrived while I've been away, so expect a big update then!

Figma Mami Tomoe - Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Mami Tomoe Figma
Max Factory

Today's item is figma Mami-san! Mami is probably my favorite Puella Magi. Her specialization is summoning hundreds of muskets - Unlimited Rifle Works, if you will.

I didn't do an unboxing of this but I snapped a few pics of her:

Saber Alter v2 Dollfie Dream Review

Saber Alter v2 (2nd Ver) Dollfie Dream
Type-Moon x Volks

Today we'll be looking at the second version Saber Alter DD!

The first release was one of the rarer Dollfies, so Volks released a new version due to popular demand. The sculpt of this version is identical, but her clothes are totally new, and her wig and face have minor differences.

Saber Extra Dollfie Dream Review

Saber Extra Dollfie Dream
Type-Moon x Volks 

The pinnacle of the arts. The flower of Olympia. The tyrant of Rome. 
In todays words, it's Red Saber!

As Type-Moon fans will already know, Saber Extra is a different character to the usual Saber we are familiar with. I've been waiting for this since it was shown a few months ago so it's great to finally have it.

The box is really nicely done, I wasn't sure online but it looks good in person.

3A Metal Gear REX Preview

I don't usually collect mechs, but this is one of the best things I've ever seen so I had to order one! REX is absolutely iconic, I love it's design. 

They aren't delivered until late August October late January 2013 so for now these pictures will have to suffice.

Love is War DX - Miku Hatsune GSC 1/8th Review

Love is War DX - Miku Hatsune
Good Smile Company

Wow, a post that isn't Type-Moon related! Today I'm showing the long awaited Love is War 1/8 scale statue by Good Smile Company. This was announced over two years ago now as far and was hotly anticipated when it first appeared, and now it's finally out. This figure shows a different side of Miku to usual and is probably my favorite vocaloid appearance along with Meltdown for Rin, which luckily also got a figure a while back.

Witch on the Holy Night Phonecards + Poster

Witch on the Holy Night Loot

Mahoutsukai no Yoru (Witch on the Holy Night) is Type-Moon's upcoming, perennially delayed, visual novel. It was first due for release in 2009, then 2010, and now the date has finally been set for April 12, 2012. The new date seems fairly solid though, seeing as a playable demo has finally been released.  I was impressed enough with the demo to order a few bits and pieces to do with the game.
