I am Now on Facebook (and MyAnimeList)

December 4, 2015

Yes. After years of trying to steer clear of social media, I’m actually going to give it a shot. (^.^;)

Currently, I’m still experimenting with the type of content I’ll post there and I’m also thinking about how to differentiate it from my blog. Essentially, what I’ll be posting there are updates, random musings, show reviews, opinions and even small loot posts. Stuff that I feel are important, but not important enough for a long blog post.

My blog will still be for longer, more well thought out opinion pieces, articles and loot posts – the kind that anyone can come back to and won’t be lost in a sea of updates. However, I’ll be sure to link all new blog posts from my Facebook account as well.

Please don’t hesitate to drop by and say hi and don’t be afraid to send a friend request!

You can also follow me on MyAnimeList! I’ve been a member for a very long time and I update it very, very, religiously. My favorite anime, my favorite characters, what I’m watching, what I watched, it’s all there!

World Uniform Operation Tsubomi and Erika!

November 30, 2015

HeartCatch Precure! is one of my all time favorite Magical Girl series and my favorite series from the Precure franchise. I’ve been waiting ages for the HeartCatch girls to make an appearance in the World Uniform Operation line (a brilliant name, being a pun on World Domination Operation) ever since MegaHouse started making their way through the various Precure franchises.

Tsubomi and Erika are absolutely gorgeous and look simply magnificent together with the figures of their transformed counterparts, also produced by MegaHouse.

See several more pics after the jump, including more of Cure Blossom and Cure Marine!

Why the Kamen Rider Gaim Toy Line is So Grape

November 16, 2015

Image00001

Being a Kamen Rider fan for many years, I’m no stranger to the fact that the franchise is just one big toy commercial. However, to succeed in its endeavor to sell toys, both the show and the toys need to be good in their own right and play off each other’s strengths and unique characteristics. On top of that, in order to keep the long-time fans buying, innovations and improvements must be made to keep things fresh and updated.

In my opinion, the 2013/2014 Kamen Rider series, Kamen Rider Gaim, is a phenomenal show. Whether you love it or hate it, we can’t deny the fact that it took the series to new heights and took a concept as silly-sounding as Fruit Samurai and turned it into something serious, epic and mature – a series full of intrigue, twists and high-stakes that even non-Kamen Rider fans could enjoy. Hardly surprising, if you ask me, considering it was written by none other than Urobuchi Gen, famous for his other works including Saya no Uta, Psycho-Pass, Fate/Zero and Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Yes, that Urobuchi Gen.

However, I don’t think that the show’s success can solely account for the 390% increase in toy sales and a total revenue of 10 billion yen over the course of the series run. No. If you ask me, the toys had a part to play as well. In this article, we’ll be taking a look at various aspects of both the show and the toy line to see why it’s just so ingenious.

WARNING! There are spoilers for the show within this post! While there aren’t any plot spoilers, the various forms and abilities for a number of the Riders are discussed!
