September Lootage

September 5, 2009

My September HobbySearch shipment came in today. Last month I only added one figure to my collection, the Alter Bounty Hunter Yoko, and I sort of missed getting the huge bulk package to tear into.

FREEing 1/8 Nagi

April 24, 2009

Nagi is one of my newest favorite characters in anime, and she is receiving several figure treatments, including the 1/8 PVC one by FREEing that I’ll be going over today.

In that review, the Kotobukiya Nagi in her nekomimi costume makes a guest appearance towards the end. The FREEing Nagi however, is wearing the standard attire that you see her wearing for the majority of the show, and is holding the mahou shoujo-ish wand that she uses to banish impurities, while standing on the stump of the sacred tree that was used to create the statue that she materialized from.

Kotobukiya 1/7 Zange-chan Bunny Girl

Happy Easter folks! In celebration of the mainstream secular version of the holiday and its mascot, the Easter Bunny, I will be reviewing my very own bunny today. This is Kotobukiya’s 1/7 PVC sculpt of Zange-chan, the Catholic nun, idol, and sister goddess to Nagi from the manga turned anime Kannagi, in a bunny girl costume. Although she is not edible like so many of the chocolate Easter bunnies around this time of year, she is still very mighty tasty. This figure of Zange-chan is part of a three figure set of the three main Kannagi girls. Nagi in her nekomimi costume has already been released, and Tsugumi in her inu costume will be released in the near future.
