Flare has a new Roselinde Freyja, complete with giant triangle

Someone's going out for a night on the town; and taking that enormous weapon with her. From Shining Blade (one of the more recent entries in Sega's decades long Shining franchise), the priestess with the leastless fun: R...

Tomopop Review: MegaHouse's Natsume Yuujinchou Petit Chara Land
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Natsume Yuujinchou (Natsume's Book of Friends) will probably always rank as one of my favorite top anime series of all time. For four seasons I laughed and cried with this series like few others. I was pretty sad when the final season, Natsume Yuujinchou Shi, ended back in 2012, but thankfully not all is lost. Not only is the manga still ongoing, there are still companies like MegaHouse more than happy to keep making figures. In this case we'll be looking at their recent entry in the long running Petit Chara Land series featuring Natsume Yuujinchou

Can these little figures really hold up to the discerning eye of a fan? Find out after the jump!

Don't wait until the spring to view Sakura Saber

Fate/stay night's Saber has had many faces, but none as Japanese as Sakura Saber. If you're not familiar with Good Smile Company's latest take on Saber (first announced nearly a year ago!) don't feel bad, she comes from a rat...

NYCC 2014: Good Smile Company

We got the teaser just the other day, now we get to see the whole thing! It's fairly rare for Good Smile Company to tackle properties from the west (though that seems to be changing every event), but with recent efforts to gi...

Pre-order Yotsuba and Danbo in space!

The greatest thing to come out of Wonder Festival Winter was Sentinel’s take on Danboard. They took this charming cardboard robot and threw him up in space. That sounds kind of cruel, but no they made him a spaceship! ...

Tomopop Review: Good Smile Company's Nendoroid Tomoko Kuroki
by Vanessa Cubillo

One day I came across this odd manga called No Matter How I Look at It, It’s You Guy’s Fault I’m Not Popular. Not only was the title something that reminded me of early Panic at the Disco song titles, the main character was bizarre. Tomoko Kuroki is strange, socially awkward, and sometimes down right crazy.

Still, there’s a part of me that roots for her, and that’s why I was very happy when Good Smile Company released a Nendoroid of Tomoko. So does this figure live up to the truly weird character that Tomoko really is? Click the cut and  read on to find out.

Sentinel's Danboard figures are ready to blast off!

For me, the coolest thing to come out of Wonder Festival Winter was Sentinel’s Danboard. I mean, come on! It’s Danbo in space! So now we have a preview of three of these Danbo figures. None of these are from the ...

These Danbo figures look good enough to eat

Why is Danbo such a popular figure? I couldn’t wait to get one! Of course, I am a fan of the manga, Yotsubato, but Danbo is hardly a main character there. So, really it’s just a figure of a cardboard box, and th...

figma Captain America and Ninja Slayer share a preview

A preview gallery has appeared for both (as in one gallery for two unrelated characters) Max Factory's upcoming figma Captain America and Ninja Slayer. Pre-orders are expected to open tonight/tomorrow. Unfortunately the photos themselves are dark and blurry, but we should see better images of both figures when pre-orders open shortly.

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...

Aniplex's 'very business casual' suited Saber now available for pre-order

The American comic strip Dilbert has recurring bits about business casual going too far. This would certainly seem to be the case with Aniplex's 1/6-scale Fate/Zero suited (or barely suited) Saber, if she had ever worked in a...

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Giant figma roundup

I'm sure it comes to no one's surprise that there were a lot of new figma on display at Wonder Festival. But could you really predict just how varied the offerings this time around would be? They really dug out some unexpecte...
