S.H. Figuarts Sailor Moon is getting a re-release

S.H. Figuarts Sailor Moon was certainly one of the more eagerly anticipated figures of last year, causing a pretty mad pre-order scramble that you don't see too often. It was worth the hassle too as Natalie discovered in her ...

Pre-orders are up for Good Smile's Shinobu re-release

As we talked about yesterday, the fact that Good Smile Company is re-releasing their lovely Shinobu Oshino from the Monogatari series is fantastic news for collectors, since it allows fans to get their hands on a figure ...

It's been more than two years since we originally had a chance to pre-order Good Smile Company's rather adorable take on the Monogatari series's resident vampire loli, Shinobu Oshino. As with all things Monogatari she was a big hit and a near instant sellout, commanding high prices on the secondhand market. Fear not those of you who missed her first time out though because today it was announced she'll be re-released later this year!

Kahotan also gifts us a re-preview (is that even a thing?) using an original production run version, which confirms she's just as lovely as ever. Her huge pile of doughnuts base is highlighted, complete with references to the show's other characters, and Kahotan also points out her removable mouth doughnut and ability to sit flat on other surfaces.

There's bound to be big demand for this re-release, so I'd prime your browsers if you want in. The blog states pre-orders begin tomorrow from the Good Smile Online Store, but I'd be amazed if regular retailers aren't in the loop as well. In any case, check back and we'll have a list of links for you.

Enjoy a good book with Lilith at your side

Yami to Boushi to Hon no Tabibito was one of the first blatantly yuri anime I ever got into, and as little known as it is I'll definitely remember it for a long time to come. I also remember Clayz' kit of the series' library ...

Build yourself a pair of demons with Elsie and Haqua

Recently I managed to find the time to see what all the fuss was about with The World God Only Knows, and I'm certainly glad I did. Burning through the first two seasons and all of the OVAs in about a week, it's only a matter...
