A Note to My Dear Readers :)

I wouldn’t want to make this long so I’ll go straight to the point.^^

Having a hobby such as figure collecting or watching Animes are really fun. I assume all of you agree and that’s why you are here 🙂

But we couldn’t do it everyday because we have other things to do.

Actually, my final exam for Cambridge A-level is just around the corner. I just hate exams ^^ So that means I’ll have lesser time to write within this 2 months, probably until the end of June. I’ll still write if I have free time.

I need to continue to do my preparations for the exam. Once I get rid of this obstacle, I’ll continue to write in full gear 🙂

In the meantime, I want to thank all my readers and partners for all your support. Have a nice day everyday!

Now I need to continue with my studies^^

 

 

Keep on rocking.

Figure Culture 🙂

Another huge figurine by FREEing. The price is also huge too. I seriously think this one cost a bomb. Sure the Anime is good but the figurine is simply overpriced. How many of you plan to get it?

The foolish angel with a lovely body has fallen from the heavens… wearing a bunny outfit!

Just like the Ikaros figure before her, the net tights on her legs are made from real material for a realistic appearance and feel. She is posed in a very alluring pose, leaning forward to show off her impressive breasts with a mischievous wink – a pose that will charm almost anyone into falling for her!

Experience that faithful Summer once again…

From, ‘Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai’ comes a 1/7th scale of the heroine of the series, Meiko Honma! She is wearing a swimsuit in a cute pose based on a special illustration created for Comiket 80 goods.

Careful attention has been given to all the smallest details on the figure, such as the hibiscus flower in her hair or the ‘wise words’ that were originally found on Jin-tan’s T-shirts, but are now written all over her swimming tube! She is wearing an adorable two-piece swimsuit while treating herself to an ice cream, as she enjoys a beautiful summer day at the beach!
