OMG! Time sure flies. Within a blink of an eye, it has already been almost a month since I’ve posted something on this blog! Anyways, the reason that I’ve been away for so long is because of my finals, which just ended this past week (as stated on my Youtube Channel). Now that it is three months of freedom, it’s time to crank up the dial to 11 and get some posts, reviews and Anime watching done!!! First off, let’s start off with the stuff that I’ve acquired over these past two months. Basically, these things are the stuff that I’ve refrained from opening till summer break and now’s the time to indulge!!!

Review: 1/7 Scale Fate Testarossa ~Phantom Minds~ by Alter

February 19, 2011

We have well established figure producers like GSC, Max Factory, Kotobukiya, Wave, Freeing and Megahouse that always churn out quality products. Then we have Alter. I don’t think many would disagree with me when I say that Alter is definitely one of the best, or if not the best, figure maker at this point in time. What can I say? Alter’s figures are definitely a league above all other brands. Their figures are consistently excellent, utilizing one of the best feeling materials, having quality paint jobs, gorgeous poses and intricate sculpts. This usually yields a figure that any collector would be proud to own and proud to have displayed on his shelf.

Now, why am I singing such high praise of Alter from the get go? Well, that’s because it’s true.

…and also because I’ve been completely smitten by their latest offering in their Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha figure line, their 1/7 Scale Fate Testarossa figure.

Actar’s Reviews 180 – Fate Testarossa Voice Clock Showcase and Translation

December 27, 2010

Let me introduce to you the Talking Alarm Clock. Not really something that is commonly talked about or easily obtainable, Talking Alarm Clocks are precisely what they are. Alarm Clocks with alarms that are specially recorded lines of Anime characters by their respective voice actors. These phrases are usually along the lines of trying to wake someone up as we shall soon see.

I’ve been wanting to get one of these for quite awhile, partly out of curiosity and partly due to the novelty factor. However, as far as I know, such clocks aren’t usually readily available at regular online stores. I’ve never seen the Haruhi, Railgun or Bamboo Blade ones up for sale and yet they exist. I suppose they were event or online store exclusives or something to that effect.

However, the clock that I have infront of me can indeed be purchased from any online hobby store. They are tie ins with the Nanoha movie that feature the voices of both Nanoha and Fate, who are voiced by Tamura Yukara and Mizuki Nana respectively.

This one is the Fate Version that has 4 different alarms. The first three are all voiced by Fate, but the last one is by both Nanoha and Fate. While the Nanoha clock has 3 lines voiced by Nanoha and one voiced by both of them.

This is my first attempt at translating, hopefully I’ve done the lines justice. (^.^;)
