About This Artist

I am a huge anime and art fan. This is blog where those interests can collide! Also figures. There will be lots of figures.

Tears to Tiara II came out today. I was only able to play a little bit, but I am enjoying it so far. The story seems strong. I do think it was kind of an odd choice to have such a serious story and have the character models be so SD and cute. 

Anyways, I found out that the leading lady, Tarte, got a rather lovely figure from Vertex back in July. The figure is based one of the key illustrations, and it looks like they did a good job with it.

I have only seen one Vertex figure up close - their BlazBlue Noel figure - and will say I thought it was quite well done. So the quality of this is probably pretty good too.  I think I will wait until I am a bit further in the game before I decide if I will order though. I would hate to end up spending so much on figure of character I could end up hating. First impressions were good, but she has only just shown up.

If you can’t wait though she is still up on AmiAmi.

Look who popped up for pre-order!

If Megahouse keeps doing PreCure girls for their Seifuku line I could become very poor. Both Love and Setsuna look lovely. Fresh was a really fun season of PreCure and it is great that it is finally getting some scales (even if they are just 1/10)

I wonder if Kanade from Suite will get a figure in this line? I would be thrilled~

Is everyone else as psyched as I am about Margaret in P4A Ultimax?
I downloaded her last night, and I am determined to make her my main. I like the way she handles generally, then you combine it with the awesomeness of her being basically my favorite character from Persona and you have a very winning combination. 
So far in P4AU I have only done VS matches. I never finished the original P4A’s story really so I haven’t been sure if I should give this one a try. I may try and get started on it this weekend.

New Sailor Moon Crystal bento-ware went up and is due out in November.

I love bento supplies - decidedly more than I like making bento if I am going to be perfectly honest. And I love the art they are using with these. The eye catch art for Crystal has been a joy.

Did everyone get a chance to watch the first episode to the new Fate/Stay Night? Because if not you need to make time to do so now. It was a really impressive step off that covers the prologue to the game - which means it is a Rin centric episode. As a friend of mine put it “Rin got more development in that one episode than she did in all of the original Fate/ Stay Night anime.”
Ufotable does not disappoint from an art or animation perspective either. The series is lovely - as we would expect after having seen the good work they did on Fate/Zero.

This is a really fun comic. I mean, it is only one issue so it is really short. But  it lays the groundwork for what feels like is going to be a great story. It is the story of an Irish-Japanese girl who moves to Japan to live with her Mother. While exploring one day she runs into a group of evil Kappas and is helped by a strange cat-like girl. The issue ends shortly after that but it left me looking forward to the next issue. The art is really nice too.

009: Blastoise
I haven’t posted a Pokemon in a while. I was working on Blastoise for a while and couldn’t quite get him where I wanted him. Still, I am ready to move on.

I started watching Revolutionary Girl Utena recently for the first time. I just finished episode 6, and I must say - what circumstances conspired to keep this from my life for so long? I am in love. One minute or heroine is fighting a dramatic battle for the sake of her friends, the next a student council member is punching out a kangaroo to save his sister. I can’t really get enough of this show.
So naturally a memory of figure long since on the front page of AmiAmi came creeping on me. On a whim I checked, and yes, due out this month is an Utena figure. And she looks like she will be lovely. So not even a quarter of the way through and I am ordering a figure for it. What can I say - it is a rising star of my heart.
She is still  available at AmiAmi if you wanted to preorder her too.
