I review what I see at first glance and have known before hand when reviewing. These reviews contain rantable content as I randomly speak from my mind that may confuse people.
For more Figma related material may want to check out Figma Photoshoots or request more information/images about the Figma.

Fate/Extra – PSP – North American version

This was quite unexpected! Fate/Extra actually managed to reach North American shorelines for the PSP. However, there were problems with the shipping causing those interested to wait and wait. Patience! For those that know me shall know that I love Fate/Stay Night and the various other series and games, Fate/Extra obviously entering my collection twice.

Busou Shinki – Battle Masters Mk. II (PSP)

Hello fellow Masters! It’s about time for another review. What is it? Battle Masters Mark two! That’s right, Mk. II. The sequel to Battle Masters for the Japanese audience on the PSP. Various tournament filled with highly intelligent and customizable 15 cm tall battle robots!

Note: Sorry, but I don’t have the bundle because it was too costly for me. If you want to gift me one so I can review that then feel free to do so! But ya, I have this very strong doubt you’ll ever do that so……hell would have to freeze over first……moving on! Let us enjoy this lovely game instead! Kon!

Busou Shinki – Sharatang – Type Violin

Music is a beautiful thing in this world. Yet, it can also be a dangerous piece of beauty when used as a weapon. Sharatang is such an example with her being musically elegant while wielding her violin. I’ve obtained her from HLJ for a total of $93 Canadian while checking to see who had what Shinki’s in stock after the WonFes ’11 update.

Gran Turismo 5 – Review & Photoshoot.

Hello again!
I wanted to share Gran Turismo 5 with you this time just because I like this kind of game, and the previous versions. It’s a tad bit late, but probably still a good time to personally review it now that I got a PS3 that can play this lovely game! First PS3 yellow lighted on me – 60 gig PS3 (2006/7-2010?). The game also released some times around December and received around 6 big patches, which could be considered DLC.

Shorty Miko Dress – Foxy Renge

Kon! My lovely Renge finally turned into a divine fox spirit! How? By getting a lovely 1/12 Azone made shorty  miko dress with a broom. Basically the female shrine outfit that you see at Japanese shrines around Japan, and in Anime. I’ve been looking at getting something neat for my Renge for a long time and finally got such from HobbySearch. I kept checking AmiAmi but had my little issues with it. And because people are calling Shinki  dolls, not figures, I’ll treat Renge like a “doll” today. Might as well play along, right? 😛

IL-2 1946 Sturmovik & J7W1 Shinden

I just feel like flying for these past few days and weeks that I picked up IL-2 1946 Sturmovik. I obtained IL-2 from Steam for just $10 CAD (Canadian), and been wanting to play it for the past 2-3 years. I’m also pretty sure that the majority of people already have this within their possession. I’ve been holding off  on this because of Flight Sim X, Figma’s, Shinki’s, life, and because I couldn’t find the hard-copy. Also, this article isn’t purely aimed at the IL-2 1946 game, but the the J7W1 Shinden itself. I wanted to focus on the Shinden.

I have to thank Kodama within the IL-2 modding community for this gorgeous plane!

Figma Mirai – Culture Japan

I spy with my little eye something that is….Orange & white, has a “d” logo, and with a name that means future. Who could that be? Danny choo’s mascot – Mirai! I’ve obtained my Figma Mirai from J-List. Why not? Everybody else seemed to have went with AmiAmi but eh…let’s create our own unique path!

Battle Rondo – Fubuki – Type Ninja/Ninjya

Hello guys! As planned, I’m deciding to review Shinki Fubuki in her Battle Rondo form! I have Fubuki in figure form, and also have her in her “trial” form in Battle Rondo. Let us review the abused, thrown out, and shy little ninjya girl? Guess we need to also harass you guys for abusing her in the first place >.>

Busou Shinki – Fubuki – Type Ninja

I got another review for you guys/gals, and this I have Shinki Fubuki! She is a type ninja with fox traits. Though, her legging shows a bird-like appearance. You can try Konami Style (Japan domain), Mandarake, or even E-Bay. I obtained mine from Mandarake for about $100 CAD, after a few very noobish happenings, with her arriving just this Friday.

Battle Rondo – Tsugaru – Type Santa Claus

I activated Tsugaru on April 30th and thought I’d try and review her Battle Rondo side. I gave her some attention in Diorama studio, but couldn’t in Rondo due to her being added in Battle Rondo. She’s a lovely, jolly, and adorable girl. Her cuteness even rivals that of Renge and Kohiru! And because she wasn’t around when I reviewed her figure she gets her own little article in her Battle Rondo form.

Figma Luka Megurine – Vocaloid

Oh? Whats this? A Figma? Yes, I’m still interested in Figma’s, even though I’ve been going Shinki-crazy the past few months thanks to Shinki Renge haha! I’ve obtained Luka from my local AnimeStop on April 27th. I’ve been seeking her ever since she released and had a bit of trouble getting her within my grasp. I’ve been a bit lucky that she hasn’t sold out in the same way as Rider and Kos-Mos have!

Battle Rondo – Kohiru – Chopsticks

Victory! After a lengthy time of being stuck in Diorama Studio, she finally made it into Battle Rondo. Kohiru’s wave sister Merienda (spoon) also made it in. Also, BrigthFeather (nurse) and HarmonyGrace (Nun) accompanied the food cutlery in this update. With this, Battle Rondo had a necessary update on March 30th inserting older Shinki’s due to fans requesting their older Shinki’s into the MMO.

Pokemon White Bundle (DS)

Ah, Pokemon! The good old days as a kid playing Pokemon Red & Blue on the original Gameboy before the Gameboy got looted from me at school. I acquired the Pokemon White bundle due to nostalgia and because a few people I know used to, or still do play Pokemon. Makes a nice themed purchase for my Arctic Fox persona, with it being white and all. It was also a nice gift to myself on my special month – Epic March!

Shinki Renge P2 – Battle Rondo Review

Welcome back to part two of Renge’s Review! Why? Because she was finally added into Konami’s Battle Rondo! My other review of her was too large to add to so I thought I’d split it up into her own second review article. It’s been a long time waiting for her to appear in Battle Rondo, even when planned to be the first Shinki in my collection back in August 2010.
