The famous BRS Curry sold at events…

01

Is soon to be available to try at home!

       ___
     /     \
   /  _ノ  ヽ、_  \   ”It’s depressing that you can
  /  o゚⌒   ⌒゚o  \      only get it at events!”
  |     (__人__)  |
  \     ` ⌒´     /
  ノ            \

We heard the fans voices, and so it has been changed into a pre-packaged sachet that can just be heated up and eaten – keeping the same unique taste of course!

Plus each packet of curry comes with a little charm!

One each of BRS-chan and DM-chan!

04

These are the two charms!

Look how BRS-chan has her spoon to her mouth ready to dive into the curry! It’s so cute! 😛

They’re quite small, but very detailed for their size!

They still look good even when I take a close-up picture like this one!

05

A closer look at the DM-chan charm!

Ah! DM-san! You’re drooling!! xD

The spoon DM-chan is holding seems slightly bigger than BRS-chan’s spoon!

It seems DM-chan is confident that she can more curry than BRS-chan 😛

06

This is how they look from the back!

Those round heads are so cute! And look at the tiny little wings on DM’s back!

03

Here we have the curry in its sachet!

There are two different options to get, but only the charm changes between them – the curry is the same in both sets. If you want both charms just grab both and then share the curry with a friend!

07

You simply warm it up in hot water!

Today’s photos are coming from the Good Smile Cafe! (which is actually a Madoka Cafe at the moment). A big thanks to the Cafe staff for taking time out of your busy schedule to let us use some of the kitchen!

08

BRS Curry!

The color of the photo didn’t come out great because of the lightin, but…

It has a more blackish color compared to other curry!

If you’re worried about the black color, then stop worrying!

The BRS Curry is made by Indotei!

Indotei is brushing up to be one of the most famous curry stores in Matsudo – they even recently featured in a magazine – there is no way their curry will not be delicious!

09

I made two servings!

The stuff on top of the rice is mayonnaise! The BRS Curry at events also had some mayonnaise on the top – it adds a nice little mild taste to the curry!

Although it’s also of course just as good without the mayonnaise. 😛

11

Lunch is served!

Here we have Megahara from the advertising team and Nagaizumi from the sales team (and the person in charge of the BRS curry product!) trying out the curry! I kinda want some myself too now… I should have made three…

10

Even though it’s pre-packaged there are nice big pieces of meat!

Plus it smells absolutely delicious! Just look at BRS-chan and DM-chan on the other side… they definitely want some for themselves! 😛

12

She is taking the first bite!

Well? Well? How is it?!

   |   . `⌒   }      
   ヽ       } 
    ヽ     ノ 
   /      ヽ 

That’s it…?

Is what I thought at first, but she ate it so quickly after that, that she didn’t really need to say anymore…  😛

13

Nagaizumi’s turn to try some!

     / ̄ ̄\
   / .\  / \ ← Nagaizumi
   | (ー) (ー) |  
   |  (__人__) |   ”It’s not too spicy and not too bland –
   |   `i  i´  |     just how I like it. It tastes even better
   |   . `⌒   }      than it looks! Plus it’s filled with tender meat!”
   ヽ       } 
    ヽ     ノ 
   /      ヽ 

Oh, I see! That’s a much more fulfilling answer!

If it’s so good though then I will just have to have a bite myself!

It really is delicious!

Much better tasting than the normal pre-packaged curries!

14

All finished!

As Nagaizumi takes the same pose as the BRS-chan charm… 😛

01


BRS Curry and Charm Set!

A set of both will cost 2000JPY!

You may be thinking that it’s “too expensive for curry!”, but remember…

They each come with a charm as well!

I’m sure some people will even buy it for the charm, and get the curry an as extra. ^^;

There are two ways you can get hold of the curry and charm sets:
■ Reserve at Circle K Sunkus stores!

15

You’ll find a pamphlet titled ‘Karuwaza Online Select’ at the Circle K Sunkus stores – they are normally found lying around the ‘Karuwasa Station’ in the stores.

        ____
        /     \    ”What’s a Karuwasa Station…?”

| | | ⌒ ーnnn        |\(⊆ソ |_|__________|
 ̄ \__、(“二) ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄l二二l二二  _|_|__|_

It’s a machine that looks a little bit like an ATM… if you can’t find it just ask in-store! If you open up that pamphlet you’ll find a page that features the BRS Curry and Charm set – just take note of the product number.

Make your pre-order at the Karuwasa Station, and pay at the register!

If you can’t find the pamphlet, you can also just trust me when I say that…

The product code is: 1106133!

Just input this number into the Karuwasa Station!
■ Internet Pre-order!

16

You can also order some from the ‘Karuwasa Online’ website!

Simply access the page below and add it to your cart and checkout – there is nothing easier!
■ Karuwasa Online:
http://karuwazaonline.jp/pc/00000003/goods/16898/


The curry will only be sold at Circle K Sunkus stores!
There is also a limited stock, so get your orders in if you are interested!

Anyway, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!  (・∀・)ノ゛

Tasshi! What are you doing!?

001

You’re looking way too close! Stop staring at the poor girl!

Tasshi here was in charge of coloring for today’s figure!
He is just admiring his fine work! (I hope! :P)

16

The 5th figure in the 1/8th scale Bakemonogatari series:

Mayoi Hachikuji!

She is yet another heroine from the popular anime Bakemonogatari, following on from Hitagi Senjougahara, Nadeko Sengoku, Suruga Kanbaru and Tsubasa Hanekawa is ‘ the girl who was puzzled by the snail’ – Mayoi Hachikuji!

Take a look at the photo above and then compare below…

15

A perfect 3D rendition of the illustration!

It’s unbelievable… the more you look at it the more it just looks as if the illustration has just jumped out into the 3D world!

As before, she is also based on the BD/DVD package!
To be more specific, the original illustration was the front cover of the second volume of the anime – “Mayoi Snail”.

004

This is how she looks from the back!

Of course you can’t have Mayoi without her giant bird backpack. The little bear in side pocket can be taken out and replaced with something else!

005

A look from the other side!

Even the name sticker has been written out in the exact same font! You can also see the giant paw sticking out the bag, as well as the little rabbit patch on the side!

17

An embarrassed expression holding a ribbon in her mouth!

Such an adorable childish cuteness mixed with a wonderful adult charm!
Look around the ribbon at her slightly open shirt!

006

Plus wonderful thighs!

I was just thinking during the Azunyan figure the other day that these half-way up socks might becoming more and more popular – Mayoi also has them!

Those calves just make you want to reach out and touch them!  。・゚・(ノД`)・゚・。

You can even make out her figure nicely over her clothes!!

007

Her right shoe can be removed!

The package featured her shoe half falling off, which is great – but you also have the choice to remove it completely for a slightly different feeling!

008

This is how she looks from the top!

We normally always only get a look of figures from the front – that’s generally how they’re displayed… but sometimes it’s interesting to take a look at them from the top!
The ribbon and loose show stand out so much more!
(I’m sure at least some people will agree with me :P)

010

The map can be placed wherever!

As you can see it’s painted as a real map – the details are amazing, both on the map and Mayoi’s beautiful curves!
By the way!

Some of you might be thinking something like that! So was I in fact… but…

Her backpack is the stand!

Although because of that…
The price will be lower than the other figures in the series!

It’ll make it a little cheaper for everyone trying to grab the entire figure series!

012

The backpack can be removed as so!

Which also lets us see her back!

Her petite little back has been sculpted just as carefully as the front! There is a little bumpy bit where the backpack connects, but there wasn’t anything that could do about that – I shouldn’t bother anyone too much!

013

The second in the Bakemonogatari 1/8th scale series:

Nadeko Sengoku is going on resale!
She will go on resale on the same day Mayoi is released – if you missed out on her the first time around, be sure to grab her this time!

Anyways, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!  (・∀・)ノ゛

I really, really wanted to play with this figma, so I quietly took her back to my own desk and decided to do my own review!

001

The 4th Bakemonogatari figma!

figma Suruga Kanbaru!
One of the many heroines from the popular anime ‘Bakemonogatari’!

It’s incredible! Absolutely stunning!
It’s so detailed for a figma-size figure! The coloring team over at Max Factory really are incredible at their work!

002

This is how she looks from the back!

All of her characteristic features are all nicely visable – from her spats down to the bandage on her arm.  Plus take a look at the coloring detail on her shoes – it’s amazing!

003

She shoots, she scores!

She comes with an optional basket ball!
You can make good use of the figma stand here to create an epic mid-game pose with the basket ball! I haven’t played with a figma in so long – it’s so much fun!

004

Her first extra expression – closed eyes!

It might be hard to tell from the photo, but even her eyelashes are perfectly Kanbaru – they look exactly like the series!

By the way!
The background is from the 1/8th scale Kanbaru figure!

I just quickly grabbed a sample from the production team which is probably still going through some changes, but even so you can see how nicely it works with other figures including figmas!

005

A surprised face and monkey paw!

This face is perfect for when she is talking with Ararararagi – be sure to display the two of them together sometimes! The monkey paw is replaceable in place of her bandaged arm!

006

The Rainy Devil!

This is the reason I just had to do a review of this figma!

This is just incredible, Max Factory!!

To have included this classic option in with the figma! It’s just perfect for fans of the series – you can even recreate the awesome fight scene between her and Arararagi!

She comes with a Rainy Devil face and a yellow raincoat!
Plus she also has a different monkey paw – this one is a closed paw while the previous was an open paw! Just one thing to note though, is that the raincoat might still undergo some changes before release.

009

“Will you still stay then…?”

Ah… I finally got to do it! I really loved this scene and I just had to put it up! xD
I really, really loved this part in the anime – I’ve watched it so many times, and just thinking about it while typing this up brings a tear to my eye!

The seat next to mine is Oomura’s – an Azunyan fan!
001
He goes to all the Azunyan live events and pilgrimages, and he even went so far as to steal the master figure for today’s review and keep it as his own!

     /  ─    ─  \

    \    ` ⌒´    / 
    /  し          \

H-Hey! I need that first!

002

And thus today’s blog will be taking a look at…

Max Factory’s…
1/7th Scale Azusa Nakano!

From the popular anime with a movie on it’s way ‘K-ON!’, Azusa is the Sakura High Music Club’s rhythm guitarist!  She also marks the last of the girls in Max Factory’s 1/7th scale series – we’ve got all five of them now!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

This Azunyan features a relaxed, stretched out pose as she lies down on a cushion! The size of the photos make her look a little small but that’s just because of the limits the the size of the pictures – she really is a beautiful 1/7th scale figure!
010

This is how she looks from above!

Before I continue this review, I have a request of everyone reading.
Imagine she is with you in your own room while reading through!
It’ll increase the moe levels by at least three times, I promise!

004

A relaxed and gentle expression!

An expression that she’ll show to you whenever you like! Personally I normally prefer girls to have an upward glance (thats why most pictures of me are taken from above :P), but this version of Azunyan is perfect with a gentle straightforward gaze like this one!

005

Defenseless, beautiful legs!

She is wearing socks quite high up but they’re not knee-socks nor tights – just a special length that reveal her calves for you… and if you touch them you can just imagine her embarressed face as she tries to get you to stop!!

008

Azunyan #2!

The kitty cat Azunyan #2 is also included with the figure! She is lazing around just like Azunyan as she plays with a little toy… just by looking at her it makes me forget all the bad things and enjoy the cuteness in front of me…

Oh, as a side note, the stand being used here is not the final stand for the figure – it is a temporary version. The final version will also have a furry warm feeling to it as well though!

007

Another picture from directly behind!

This is the scene you’ll have when you’re lying by her side! Being relaxing and lazy really is wonderful isn’t it… it’s times like that are so worth the hard times!

009

And my personal favorite shot!

We’ve just finished dinner, and watching a little bit of TV and I want to talk about everything that’s happened today… but she is too absorbed and relaxed… I can’t bother her!

011

You can also remove the cushion!

Of course the area where the cushion should be is still sculpted as detailed as everywhere else! You can catch just a small glimpse of her neck and collar bone – they look so cute!
012

A close up on her feet!

Although it looks fine just looking at her feet like this, if you do actually decide to pose her this way her hair doesn’t look right at all, so it’s not a perfect option…

The sculpting was done by the same person responsible for the previous four girls – Nakayaman! They look amazing when all displayed together!

The ‘Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai’ novels!!

Also known by it’s official nickname ‘Wa ga nai’, the novel is written by Yomi Hirasawa and illustrated by Buriki!

The novel series has just passed it’s 200 thousand sales mark – it’s hugely popular at the moment!! If you do a search for ‘Wa ga nai’ (well… “はがない” in Japanese) in twitter, you’ll see just how popular it is by the speed that the timeline updates – it’s incredible!

Ooh! There are indeed two!

The left is a special edition with a drama CD included, the right is the normal version!

The front cover of the special edition features an illustration of Sena while the normal version has Yozora – fans of the series will want to grab both just for that!
 
 

Then we come to the striking pink text!

“TV Anime Announced!”

Although I’m sure many of you already knew, as it was announced on the 18th of May in Asahi and Yomiuri newspapers. ^^;

But when is it going to start!!?

 
I decided to take a look around for the dates, but it seems they are not decided as of yet… but they do have a very interesting cast list up on the official website!

-Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Official Site-
http://www.mediafactory.co.jp/bunkoj/rinjinbu/

The top page of the site is really something to behold… those of you who understand Japanese can take a look and enjoy the joke on the top page… just mouse over the notice and read the characters that appear.

Anyway, I’m sure a lot of you are wondering why this is appearing on the blog! And the reason is this!

003

Yozora Mikadzuki and Sena Kashiwazaki…

Nendoroids are incoming!!

Yep, really!

The planning for the figures is to be done by Otakana, who has been dying to do figures from the series – when the anime announcement was made he jumped at the chance and is now super happy that there will be figures! 😛

That’s all the info I have for now, but I will continue my stalking and let you know if I find out more! Those of you who just can’t wait might want to bookmark the following site… 😉

How naughty of you, Take-chan!
But you’re welcome to carry on… as soon as I’ve had a chance to play with her!

005
Thus today I’ll be taking a look at this adorable little Nendoroid that was on display at the Good Smile 10th anniversary party!

Nendoroid Ikaros!

She is Battle Angeloid Type Alpha from the anime series ‘Sora no Otoshimono’, which is getting a film version very soon!
She has a lot of bare skin – quite rare for Nendos!!

006

This is how she looks from the back!

Her huge white angel wings are fitted with little joints which let them move up and down. The ribbons floating around her hair have also been sculpted ever so cutely!

008

Her shoulder armor can be removed!

Oooh! This way you can enjoy even more beautiful bare skin!! The blank expression on her face is also so perfectly suited to her personality – it’s so cute!

009
Let’s take a look at her other expressions!
First up is the chibi face!
 
The chibi versions of all the characters are definitely an important part of the Sora no Otoshimono series – and this expression lets you recreate the expression used by the chibi Ikaros!

She also comes with chibi wings!

010

 She also comes with… a watermelon!

Watermelons are Ikaros absolute favorite food, so the Nendoroid just had to have one too! She even comes with arm parts that allow her to hug it like she always did in the series!

003

Uranus Queen Mode!

The combat mode of Ikaros from the final episode is also included!
The wings of this version are made from clear plastic with a very slight gradiant effect – they’re very pretty! You can replace them with the normal wings whenever you wish!

Plus that expressionless red-eyed face!

002

The ultimate weapon, APOLLON!

Look at the incredible sculpting done on this extra! It’s made using 3D data, so it has absolutely perfect symmetry left and right – it really looks amazing!

Arms to hold it are also of course included!

004

It can also shoot leeks! 😛

By just switching the hand parts you can let any other Nendoroid hold it as well!

011

Panties Collection!

I’m sorry! I really tried, but I just couldn’t get them to fly properly…
If you decide to pick her up, be sure to try yourself and send in your attempts!!

Oh… and the panties aren’t included with the Nendoroid – those were collected up myself. 😛

I have been waiting for this!!

I really have been waiting for this day for so long! I’ve been a huge fan of Togashi’s works for ages, and now one of his works is being Nendorized!

Time to have some fun with a long awaited Nendoroid!

002

Nendoroid Prince!

With it’s recent anime conversion, the series ‘Level E’ has become more well known – and from that series comes a Nendoroid the genius first prince of the planet Dogura, simply known as ‘Prince’!

This is the very first figure of him!

If anyone reading this blog thinks they have a mindset even close to mine, then trust me… just grab this one!

There might also be some fans who are thinking they want a figma as well (like me), but at least this is a start! We finally have him in figure form! Don’t miss this figure of him or you might never get the chance to have a figure of him! If you’re a fan of the series you won’t be disappointed!

003

This is how he looks from the back!

His long wavy blond hair looks great in Nendoroid form!

The Nendoroid doesn’t come with a load of little items to play with, but instead comes with a huge amount of extra parts for different poses – Prince is very well known to over-exaggerate on his poses a bit, so it’s great for him to have the parts to do so! Let’s take a look at some of the poses you can make!

004

First up is his acting face!

The same expression he would always give when people made him out as the bad guy!

He also has bent arms to hold his hands to his cheeks!

005

Next up is the plotting face!

A fairly serious expression ideal for when he is coming up with his next prank! You can tell just how cunning he is by looking at the expressions that come with the Nendoroid! ^^;

A bent right arm lets you pose him with his hand to his mouth as well!

006

Those are the three expressions, let’s move onto the optional parts!

A cat and arms to hold it!

It’s the kitty that he saved from the car! He can hold onto it tightly and keep it safe now! The kitty connects onto the right arm, so you can replace the left arm with a different one and still keep the kitty.

007
And last but not least!

A chair, sitting parts and a book!

All the parts to recreate Prince sitting cross-legged on his chair while reading a book! Plus he even has the coffee cup resting on his knee!

Fans of the show may or may not have realized, but this is…

The exact pose from the scene where he first met Yukitaka!
Which was inside Yukitaka’s room… somewhat illegally. ^^;

008

A look from another angle!

It’s probably quite hard to get a Nendoroid to sit cross-legged like that, but it actually looks really great! You could even recreate Yukitaka’s room using the ‘House’ playset sold by Phat! Company!

009

Switch some parts around with other Nendoroids too!

This sunglasses from from Nendoroid HMO Miku! If only I had a hat as well then it would have been perfect!
