Wonder Festival 2015 Winter: Broccoli

Broccoli doesn't exactly have a banner year of super-popular characters on their slate (save for one), but it's not like they care. In the gallery, you'll see their bread-and-butter. Emphasis on the butt(er). Their 1/8 scale ...

Tomopop Review: Alter's Majyokko Miracle-n photo
Tomopop Review: Alter's Majyokko Miracle-n
by Jon Wills

YuruYuri was easily one of my favorite shows from 2011 and 2012. It brought lots of laughs and cute girls. Every episode was amusing and generally light hearted. It was occasionally odd, and a little creepy too. The subject matter of the show involved some light shoujou ai themes sometimes, so I guess it is to be expected. If this interest you then you may like to know YuruYuri is streaming over at Crunchyroll.

I was very pleased when I heard that Alter was making this figurine of Majyokko Miracle-n. She is a fictional magical girl from YuruYuri. It just so happens that this magical girl, when transformed, looks a lot like one of the main girls from the series Chiinatsu. Her eye color, hair, and even hair accessories match exactly, so to me this character is Chiinatsu dressing up as Majyokko Miracle-n.

Hit the jump to see my detailed review of this lovely figure by Alter.

Catch Alphamax's Chinatsu before she takes a dip

There are as many swimsuit figures as there are fish in the sea, but that won't stop Alphamax from adding to the selection. I suppose as long as there are characters to fit into swimsuits, there will be swimsuit figures. This...

Salute summer with YuruYuri's Akari

While some lucky few of us may be enjoying the onset of Winter, the rest of us are wondering why Christmas has decided to be grill weather rather than the season for yule logs and hot cocoa. An apt pre-order, then, is Alphama...
