Yuri [Angel Beats] [PVC Fig.]

property of 1999.co.jp

property of 1999.co.jpGood Smile company came with this incredible PVC version of Yuri, the protagonist from the Angel Beats series.

The figure consists of numerous details that stay true to the original artwork.

The uniform, the gun, the other parts of the equipment and she looks younger and cuter than she was in the anime.

The producer was Sanzigen, manufactured by the good Smile Company.

Yuri is one of a kind. The story of Angel Beats set us into this afterlife universe where people tried to pass their existence and move on .

Yuri was angry with her fate so she decided to fight against God and her minions. The show is very good – you gotta check it out if you didn’t saw it.

The figure will hit the market April next year and she can be pre-ordered for 4.695 yens.

Alter presents: Dizzy

Figure expos seem to bring out for fans all that is best when talking to PVC depictions of anime/game characters.

Recently there’s been made public the newest sculpture of Dizzy [from the Guilty Gears series and with a special apparition in the Queen’s Gate artbooks collection].

And by the look of it – only one word comes into my mind right now – AMAZING.

Just look at the details – the outfit, the well-proportioned limbs and the two entities representing Good and Evil from which Dizzy gains power.

If you played Guilty Gears at least once, you probably know Dizzy can become your favorite character in just a few minutes. Speaking of which – I gotta play GGXX #Reloaded today, just for the sake of seeing Dizzy in action again 😀

Kosaka Kirino Wave Ver.

From the series “My Little Sister Cannot Be this Cute” for all moe-suckers, there’s been released the possibility of pre-ordering the figure.

Kosaka Kirino in a colorful bathing suit with interchangeable parts – well-proportioned, interesting facial expressions which stay true to the animated character and moeness all along.

The figure will hit the market in may 2011 and it can be pre-ordered on Hobby Search for 3230 yens.

Producer: Hokusho, manufactured by Wave.

Super Soniko Babydoll vers. [PVC]

It’s been a while since I last reviewed some anime figures, but this one was too attractive not to be mentioned in here.

Super Soniko babydoll has two distinctive editions. This one, a lovely character, with a totally ecchi expressiveness, half-naked and ready to…hmm…party?!?

The music is directing her feelings. the cookies make the figure more enjoyable and we have also other cute elements like the cats.

The other edition, the DX, presents a refrigerator, a teddy-bear [not pedo, hopefully] and a guitar.

The association of the guitar with her headphones is amazing.

Other aspects: very interesting choice of hair color [thanks to the creator/illustrator and respected by the manufacturers and producers]. You should totally like the outfit and if you’re up for spending 6630 yens, you should add this to your collection.

Alodia Gosiengfiao

Danny Choo’s first episode of Culture Japan is now on Youtube – for those who didn’t had the chance to see it. And among the stars featured there is a sweet little cosplayer from the Philippines.

She is Alodia Gosiengfiao – she is 22 [born in March 1988]. She has a passion for Ironman – and besides that she is a gamer/cosplayer/model/anime fan/artist and pianist. She is interested in almost everything related to art.

Her success began in 2003 when she won the C3 Convention – when she wore a Final Fantasy X-2 costume. Since then she really made a career out of modeling. Because of her popularity and choice of passion – she is now one of the most influential women in the Philippines. I totally agree with that – mostly because of her way of life. She lives for her passion – and that is respectable.

You can follow her on Twitter or be a fan on Facebook. Also you can hit her official site for more cosplaying goodness. I used some of her pictures to create this slideshow. So all the pictures belong to their respective owners.

About Culture: Japan – more details to be revealed soon.

Shikinami Asuka Langley – Apron Vers.

Yes – indeed you can enjoy some new Evangelion goodness.

Manufactured by Wave and developed by Yozo Ogawa – this figure brings another note of fan-service in anime series. As you know many characters have a thing for girls cooking. And I can say that in real life the same thing is available.

But wearing an apron over your bra is definitely something anime-inspired. You could observe that in different series. Just ToLoveRu crossed my mind right now.

She looks sweet, with a bit of madness reflected – she seems like she’s going to use that tool as a weapon. Pre-orders are available and the figure will come out in January next year. You can have it for 3825 yens.

Choun Shiryu Figure Review

Griffon Enterprises brings us again some new Ikkitousen goodness.

From the producer Masahiro Yamamoto comes the figure of Choun Shiryu – one of the protagonists of the latest Ikkitousen series – Xtreme Xecutor.

Of course that being related to Ikkitousen, the figure must depict the beauty of the female body.

We have a nice Chinese blue-dress with the clicheic pattern of dragons and of course the white stockings to fire-up the buyer.

I couldn’t help but to observe the details of this figure – I mean I adore that weapon she is holding in her hand. About those closed eyes – the producer maybe wanted it this way to suggest her spirituality [who knows – I was just saying].

Anyways, this seems to be a must-have for collectors. It costs 6.460 yens.
