Kill some time with this Seki-kun desk set

Nobody knows how to kill time in class like Seki does in Tonari no Seki-kun: The Master of Killing Time. Be it having one sided Shogi wars, making stamps out of erasers, or playing with a  family of robots he can somehow...

Miyazawa Model Exhibition Spring 2014: Cu-Poche Rikka Takanashi

Another season of Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions has come to an end, but the characters still continue to be a hot commodity. Too bad companies are being painfully slow in catching on to this otaku cash cow. Well at lea...

Miyazawa Model Exhibition Spring 2014: A little donut-loving Nendoroid vampire

Nendoroid Shinobu has been on my radar for a while, and looks to be a winner. Her more animated, post-Bakemonogatari form is perfect for Nendo-fication (disregarding a certain uncomfortable bathing scene). The version at Miyazawa Model Expo is still unpainted, but she still has that melts-your-heart cuteness. This is one Kahotan preview I'm really looking forward to! [via Hobby Search's Twitter]

Homura beats the stuffing out of Kyubey in this figure photo
Homura beats the stuffing out of Kyubey in this figure
by Natalie Kipper

It's about time someone taught that albino talking squirrel-thing a thing or two! In Aniplex+'s latest 1/7-scale figure, Puella Magi Madoka Magica's Homura Akemi definitely looks determined (and dare I say, more than a little hardcore). With wisps of her time-traveling magic captured beautifully at the base combined with Homura's hair and outfit frozen in motion, the figure does an excellent job of capturing the magical girl's grace as she steps out into a battle. For those of you who don't dig girl-on-Incubator violence, it appears as though Kyubey can be removed from the figure. I kind of like that its there, though.

This figure unfortunately seems like it is exclusive to the Japanese Aniplex+ online store, where it costs ¥9,999 to pre-order. It is tentatively listed to ship in October of this year. So those wishing to purchase it have two choices: use a proxy service or hope that it will eventually come to the newly-launched USA store. Whatever you do, don't make a contract to get the figure. It isn't worth it; trust me.
