My Bootleg Levi Pt. 2

IMG_3712

Hey guys, back again with an update on my Bootleg Levi (ノ^ヮ^)ノ*:・゚✧ So the vender emailed back and said it’d be a waste of time and money to give me a refund, so they want to ‘give me half and let me keep the figure’. Ha, okay. Anywho, gonna contact Amazon and see if they can do anything about it, but before I ship him off I decided to take a few pictures for you guys. I didn’t bring out the box he came in since it was basically a floppy crushed piece of red cardboard with a titan in the back, but here’s a look at the figure itself.

My Bootleg Levi

OHMYGOD YOU GUYS IM LAUGHING SO HARD RIGHT NOW! After weeks of research I finally found a Levi figure that I wanted on Amazon, it was the Sen-ti-Nel Brave Act Levi scale figure. All the reviews were good and the pictures in the reviews looked like he was great, so I ordered him. The seller’s name was HyTan, so if you come across this, don’t buy his or hers stuff! Anywho, I waited almost a month for it to arrive, and today, it came in a battered package on my front door. It was wrapped in tape and was almost impossible to open.
Apparently it came from China, but the description said it was being shipped from Japan. Interesting.

So I opened it up and saw the weirdest looking box art. I knew what the box was supposed to look like so what I saw came as a shock to me. It had two fake stickers on it, Petit Chara Land and Chimi Mega, two brands that sell mostly Naruto Chibi figures. Odd.

Random Recs: Spring/Summer 2015 Anime

Hey! Tsuntaku here with a new set of Random Reccomendations. This edition is for some of the shows that I have finished/currently watching for Spring and Summer 2015 (shows that were airing during this time). Let’s begin! Also note that this list isn’t in any particular order, just by the ones I wanted to write about first. The words I put in the parenthesis show whether I finished the show or am still watching it.

1.)  Your Lie in April (finished)

 I aM ACTUALLY GROSS SOBBING LOOKING AT THIS PICTURE OMIGOSH. I think that sums up the show…Basically it’s about the main character, Arima Kousei, who was a piano prodigy up until his mother passed away. After that, he wasn’t able to hear the notes. That is until he met Kaori, who basically forced him to play piano again and she became his reason for playing. Omg, this show was so so so good. It was beautiful, the scenery was great, the music was amazing and is a huge part of the entire series (it has some of my personal favorite piano pieces in there), and all the characters are lovable and grow throughout the story. The ending, on the other hand, is aBSOLUTELY HEARTSHATTERING!! It wasn’t out of the blue, or unexpected, since through most the series the ending is hinted to be inevitable, but it was still heart breaking and made me cry nonstop for a week afterwards (I’m still not over it). Still, at the same time, the ending was beautiful, it was sweet, and it tied things up perfectly. Some happy tears were shed at the end, but they were quickly replaced by onES OF SORROW. To sum it up, this show is absolutely amazing, and I highly recommend that you watch it. But be warned, the end will crush you then stab you in the heart then crush you some more. So watch out.

BACK FROM THE DEAD

HEY ITS ME

about that last post….I tried to get away (I tried, I really did) mostly because I wanted to be ‘less nerdy’ because I felt like an outcast and stuff. And I did, and made more friends, but then I found some other friends who were into the same stuff, and I kinda went ‘nO MORE! I AM A WEEABOO AND I ALWAYS WILL BE’ so yeah, I am back. I’ll try to write some more random rec’s and maybe make some favorite character lists because, why not. I haven’t gotten many new figures, so I might review some older ones :D. Thanks for sticking with me this long!

Anime

I can bet that the me in the fifth grade never thought that she’d end up growing out of anime. When I first got into it I though, “Wow! I’m going to be into this forever, aren’t I?” but I guess it just started fading away. My “relationship”, we’ll call it, with anime began to fade a little more every year. I guess it had to do something with getting older and having less time to watch japanese cartoons, and part of it was wanting to be like everybody else.

To be honest for a few years after I got into anime it was pretty obvious that I was into it, I had posters all over my room and I just had that look if you know what I mean. I can’t say I had crazy dyed hair, or wore cosplay everywhere I went, but when I was younger I did indeed wear shirts of my favorite anime shows.

Then as I got older each year I noticed how much the people at school who shared the same interest as me didn’t fit in, and I’m certainly not saying that everyone doesn’t fit it, but a couple of them truly didn’t. I live in a town where hardly anyone is Japanese, me being half Japanese (yet everyone thinks I’m full on white) I’m as “exotic” as it gets. The only other people at school who were into it where white.

Anyway everyone else at school is basically the same, they all look the same, they all dress the same, and they all act the same. I couldn’t really talk to any of them because the second I’d bring up anime they’d go, “Oh those cartoons?”. And I really didn’t want to talk to the people who were actually into it because it pissed me off that they pronounced manga like mango.

A New Beginning?

Hey guys,

Yeah, I’m still alive ^^; ahaha. To be honest I don’t know, I didn’t think this day would come but..it did. I’m just not as into anime and figure collecting as much as I used to be. I kind of wish I had gotten a co-owner, so you guys wouldn’t just be waiting for something new and have nothing happen. Sorry about that. Anyway so this is where I need your guys feedback. I’m thinking about “expanding” this website, if you know what I mean. Write about other shows like Supernatural, Sherlock, Doctor Who, etc. Of course I’ll keep my figure posts, and anime ones as well, but there’ll just be more! If you think expanding is a good idea comment below, and I’d love to hear any of your ideas for the website! Thanks 😀 and I look forward to getting back to posting in the future!

I’m alive!

Hey guys, I haven’t exactly posted anything since, what, April? And it’s July now :/. I haven’t had much time to go out and take pics and to be honest I’m not as into the whole collecting shabang as I used to be, so naturally I haven’t gotten anything new since December. I didn’t go to AX this year which is normally my big “I LOVE FIGURES” thing so nothing really kick started after that like usual. I know I’ll get to something eventually, but until then, thanks for reading all the random stuff I’ve dished out!

Figma Hatsune Miku 2.0: Review

Image

I never wanted to purchase the original Miku Figma. I don’t know, there just wasn’t anything that stood out about her, and she looked a bit stare-offish (not only that but she’s not the best Figma Max factory has made.) Luckily, to celebrate their 200th Figma they decided to make something they’ve done before, to illustrate the new style of Figma. Therefore Hatsune Miku 2.0 was born!

Image

This wasn’t just a big jump for Miku, but for the Figma line as well! They’ve changed up a few things about how the figure works. At first sight this Miku obviously looks much better than the previous one, she’s a lot brighter with some more “personality”

Her legs are shiny…
