Tomopop Review: Max Factory's Mea Kurosaki

Mea hails from To Love-Ru Darkness, and as you can probably tell, the manga has its fair share of ecchi elements. Before Mea, Max Factory has also made a 1/6-scale Momo Velia Deviluke from the same property. The two share a theme in terms o...

Alter unveils promo shots of their second Mikan Yuuki

To Love-Ru has recently gotten a couple of high quality figures from Max Factory. Now Alter is gearing up to release their second Mikan Yuuki figure. If you'll recall, Alter's first take on Mikan had her lying prone in her casual cloth...

Tomopop Review: SHFiguarts Momo Velia Deviluke

You know, there's something to be said about the harem show. Sure, they're usually puerile, insipid and lacking in any sort of redeeming value. Yes, they usually rely on fanservice in lieu of good animation or solid design. You know what......

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Art Spirits

Art Spirits likes to take things slow. After they first announced their To LOVEru Darkness Precious Collection Momo Belia Deviluke figure it took some seven months for them to finally reveal it. The same seems to be true with thei...

Rapunzel's got nothing on Max Factory's Mea Kurosaki

[Update: Added links to previews and more pre-order links] Max Factory's Mea Kurosaki didn't fly under my radar. It was nowhere near my radar. If Mea was a Soviet bomber and I was commanding NORAD, let's just say we'd all be speaking Russia...

Vertex's Nana joins her sister in pre-orders

If you like Vertex's take on To Love-Ru's Momo, you can now complete the set by ordering Nana, her twin sister. This figure shows her more energetic personality compared to Momo, whose pose is more reserved. As with Momo, you'll be able to ...

Vertex adds Momo Velia Deviluke to their Dwell line

I haven't really been keeping up with Vertex news, but it looks like they've been ramping up their releases over the last year. First announced at WonFes, Vertex's Momo Velia Deviluke figure is up for pre-order now. She almost looks like a ...

Preview this Art Spirits Mikan Yuuki

Mikan is a younger sister type from To Love-Ru Darkness, and now she's getting her very own figure thanks to Art Spirits. I think her face and pose are pretty cute, but there isn't anything super fancy going on. Her outfit may look plain bu...

Alphamax's Golden Darkness looks golden in this preview

I make no bones about it: I'm critical of swimsuit figures because to me, they're pretty lazy from a design perspective. There is, however, one thing that sets Alphamax's Golden Darkness apart. It's all about that little tug she's givi...

S.H.Figuarts Golden Darkness pre-orders finally shine

It's been a bit over three months since Bandai first revealed their Golden Darkness S.H.Figuarts figure from the ecchi harem manga and anime series To LOVEru Darkness. With nothing much else to go buy some people were questio...

Comiket 83: Gift plushes

Over at Comiket 83, Gift had quite a few of their poseable plushes to showcase. Some of them (Golden Darkness from To Love-ru, To Aru's Shirai Kuroko and Misaka Mikoto, and several of the Vocaloids) weren't so new and are, in fact...

Miyazawa Model Exhibition: Vertex

It's always great to have more options when there are choices to be made. Like when a new manufacturer enters the market to bring new figures for us to be interested in. The latest is a company by the name of Vertex who made an appeara...

To Love-Ru's Momo works her devilish charm on your wallet

Back at the MegaHobby EXPO in November, ALTER revealed that they would be releasing a figure of the devilish Momo Velia Deviluke from Motto To Love-Ru. It's interesting since you would think for ALTER's first foray into this title, they wou...

MegaHobby EXPO: Alter's anime ladies

Sure we'll get the usual figure from One Piece here and game characters there, but we mustn't forget that there will always be the cute anime girl, too. And that's what ALTER presented at the MegaHobby EXPO 2011 Autumn event. The company ha...

Under the Radar: Bandai's To LOVE-Ru R-Style trading figures

Cuteness is not something that typically comes to mind for the raunchy manga and anime title To LOVE-Ru, especially with its current running season. However, leave it to the folks at Bandai to make it so with the release of their R-Style se...

Tomopop After Dark: Puchi Chara-land's Haruna of To Love-Ru

While at Anime Expo, Tim and I pressured our photographer, Ace0fClub5, into buying something from the Expo. So, when we went over to Kinokuniya, he bought this Puchi Chara-Land figure of Haruna from To Love-Ru, one of those great harem seri...

Banpresto's Ichiban Kuji Premium for To Love-Ru announced

I don't know what Banpresto is thinking of making more of these, especially because they are extremely expensive. But I guess they must be selling them if they keep making more. I wish they wouldn't sell them in bundles because I seriously ...

Shueisha's Haruna Sairenji Animal Cafe version

Sometimes, there are figures I'm on the fence about, and Shueisha's Haruna Sairenji Animal Cafe version figure falls into that category. This figure is apparently based off a scene from the To Love-Ru manga, which I have not read, so I'll h...

Devilishly Cute: Alpha Omega's Lala (school uniform version)

While I never got into To Love-Ru (which is odd, considering I liked Urusei Yatsura and the premises of the two shows are a bit similar), I can't deny that the characters from the series are cute. Doesn't matter if it's Haruna or Yami or an...

Shueisha presents To Love-Ru's Haruna Sairenji

I've read some mixed reviews about the young lady you see above in figure form, but I actually think she's pretty delightful. Due out in September, Haruna Sairenji is from the anime To Love-Ru and is due to release anywhere between July and...

Alpha Omega's Konjiki No Rami from To Love Ru

I never really contemplate what it would be like to be blonde, but this figure is so gorgeously imagined that I have to admit for a moment I thought, would it be glorious to have flowing golden locks? The moment passed, but you know the scu...

Good Smile's To LoveRu Lala 1/8 PVC

Plain and simple: the world needs more girls with pink hair. Don't tell me it can't be done -- enough bleach and determination can do anything. Hopefully the anything happens before one's hair turns into spaghetti and falls out (that's happ...
