Some diary-ish post on my otaku room and a couple of other things – It’s been almost 2 months since I started working from home and one thing I came to notice was how quiet the house was during the day and how long or maybe short that day was – you wake up in your room, work in your room, eat in your room, sleep in your room and the cycle goes on. Being the indoor type, I never minded environments like this and rather welcomed it. No need to ride the super-congested trains in the morning too which was great. However as the days passed, it’s come to my attention that it’s not always easy keeping your concentration up and working efficiently when you’re in a room with no windows and stuck with the same scenery. It’s not much but to alleviate some of the ongoing situation, I’ve spruced up my workspace over the few weeks by adding more lively figures, plants and some gadgets. Thought I lost my passion for figures after the dolls (Sora, Aura and Xera) came but it’s still there alright :3 Continue reading ‘Workspace 机周り 2012/11/5’

As mentioned in the last post, me and a few other guys went to the Wonder Festival Summer 2012 held in Makuhari Messe yesterday. Wasn’t with my usual doll group but I did meet a few other doll owners I knew from twitter and such. Some were carrying dolls so they could attend the DD festival (Miss Contest & Group photoshoot) held in Akihabara Volks later in the day which I also dropped by near its end. Must’ve taken over 200-300 photos in all since this was a very special occasion but had to flick some away due to blurriness or restrictions. Still, there’s loads of images up ahead so I’ll keep my usual blabbering very brief (‘ω`)
For those that are not familiar with this event, “Niconico Chokaigi” is basically a huge otaku convention held in Makuhari Messe from April 28th-29th which mainly features popular contents inside Nico Nico Douga (nico nico). Such were Vocaloids, Idol M@ster, Toho, Singers, Dancers, Illustrators, Billy Herrington (Aniki) and what have you. A lot of other companies and events like Good Smile Company, Aniplex and Itasha G Festival were also invited as an exhibitor so it was a pretty chaotic event. Not as many visitors as Comiket but there were estimated to be over 92 thousand visitors in the 2 days. Didn’t have a whole lot of chance to browse around during the event since the information booth where I was stationed at was kept pretty busy so these pics were taken during the preparation hours. Nothing interesting to see here back then except these Itashas but hope you’ll enjoy them ;3
Good Smile Cafe holds an anime campaign every once in a while and arrange their interior, goods and meal to the theme of the anime in topic. Previous campaigns in Good Smile cafe featured Black★Rock Shooter, Panty, Stocking and Garterbelt and its latest installation is the much controversial Puella Magi Madoka☆Magica. Although there was no rush since the campaign will continue for over 2 months, over hundred people lines up daily to get a glimpse of what was inside and things like this tells you just how much attraction this anime is getting. Most animes are forgotten shortly after it ends^^;
On thursday me, @Syaorankun, @ddotark and @fransgaard met up at Matsudo Station to see what all this was about and took a couple of pictures to share with you guys/gals here. Was surprised tho to find out that I was the only one in the group who watched all of the episodes.
2~3 hours of waiting in line didn’t bother me much since I was a huge fan of the series but I can imagine the experience was somewhat different for those who weren’t….(･ω･;)
A very brief review of the Dead Master figure I’ve come by a few days ago. As far as my eyes can tell, this figure is free of any defect unlike the Black★Rock Shooter animation version and is easily one of my favorite figures I have purchased up to date. It has a good worn-out texture in places where it needs to be, the details on her clothes are replicated very well and the over-all paint job is above satisfaction level.
