If one Misaka Mikoto is awesome, how’s 20,000 of her sound?

2011 Summer Anime Season Opinions and Recommendations… Thus FarJuly 15, 2011
Whee!!! The summer season is upon us and as always, I have yet to finish most of my previous season’s anime. But, considering that I still have one month of Summer Vacation left, I was able to, believe it or not, watch the first episodes of most of the anime on offer this season!
A feat deserving of a standing ovation… if I do say so myself. Anyways, here are my brief opinions on this season’s shows based solely on the first episode together with my rating.
In the immortal words of Mario, “Here We Go!”

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!!!

As the saying goes, you can never have enough Mikoto. This time, we’re taking a look at what happens when everyone’s favorite Level 5 Electric Princess gets turned into a figure from everyone’s favorite action figure line…

After finishing up the latest Actar’s Reviews episode, I took some time to take a couple more pictures of my (custom) Kuroko and Mikoto dolls~
Actar’s Reviews 191 – Custom Shirai Kuroko DollFebruary 12, 2011
To follow up my Custom Misaka Mikoto Doll project, we’ll be giving Azone’s 1/6 scale doll of everyone’s favorite Perverted Twin-Tailed Teleporter the articulation that she deserves.

Actar’s Reviews 175 – Custom Misaka Mikoto DollDecember 6, 2010
Here’s the video version of my most recent custom doll project, replacing the Pure Neemo Doll body of Azone’s 1/6 Misaka Mikoto with a 25cm Obitsu Doll Body.
CDP: Misaka Mikoto Onee~samaDecember 1, 2010
Nowadays, Azone’s 1/6 scale dolls utilize the Pure Neemo doll bodies. They look nice, but are horrendously lacking in the articulation department. Let’s just count the points of articulation that Pure Neemos offer.
1 – Neck, 2 – Shoulders, 2 – Upper Arms, 2 – Elbows, 2 – Wrists, 1 – Waist, 2 – Legs, 2 – Thigh, 2 – Knees, 2 – Feet
Altogether, that’s only 18 points of articulation. Not to mention, they are all cut joints that look good, but only offer a single direction of movement. While they could get away with this with non-action girls like the cast of K-On!, having Mikoto restrained to such a limited range of poseablility is a no-no.
