You don't have to pretend to love Alter's Chitoge Kirisaki

Being the self-assured daughter of a yakuza leader is probably stressful, so taking time to jump around and express your inner happiness (and I guess taking off your jacket mid-leap) must not be a common occurrence. That coul...

Alter's Shinobu only gets cuter with gluttony photo
Alter's Shinobu only gets cuter with gluttony
by Tianxiao Ma

The Monogatari series went from quirky Shaft show to a powerhouse franchise, and Alter's cashing in with a Shinobu figure! I love Shinobu not just for her moe attributes, but also because she's secretly a badass. However the figures are going to focus more on her being totally adorable.

We've had a look at the unpainted prototype before but it didn't stand out all that much compared to other Shinobu figures. The painted dekomasu looks great, and I really appreciate the bit of personality the additional expressions bring. Shinobu will be up for pre-order next week, but in the meantime you can check out the preview on Alter's blog.

Max Factory's Aoi Sakurai derails my heart
by Tianxiao Ma

I've been feeling rather uninspired by 2015's pre-order outlook so far. It looks like Max Factory will come to my rescue with Rail Wars' Aoi Sakurai.

Kahotan has a preview up of the 1/7-scale figure, and it's a cool design. The pose, detailed sculpt, and disheveled look all make for a memorable piece - certainly a contrast from the way most of Max Factory's figures are in a generic standing pose.

Aoi will be up for pre-order soon, but make sure to check out Kahotan's full preview in the meantime.
