No one can escape the cuteness and fun of the K-ON series, even the avid figure collector. When in the market for a Hirasawa Yui figure, I came across this very cheap “prize” figure of Yui and had to take note.

IA -Aria on the Planetes- Figure Unboxing

fig-iahdr

While IA isn’t the most talked about Vocaloid in the family, I still think she is by far one of the best designed. It also helps that she has a voice bank from a personal favorite of mine, Lia, who did music for Clannad, Clannad Afterstory, Little Busters Refrain, and much more.  Sadly, with little to choose from when it comes to IA figures, IA -Aria on the Planetes- 1/8 Scale Figure by Aquamarine is the best choice.

After beginning a serious collection of anime figures here a few months ago, I noticed quickly that Saber from the Fate series keeps popping up in my purchases.

Wolf Children made quite an impression when it was released not too long ago. A spectacular movie with great characters, and more importantly, great soul. So it was only natural that when I seen the hardbound novel compilation of the manga Wolf Children Ame & Yuki on the shelf of a store, I snatched it up quicker than the naked eye could see.
