Announcement

First of all, Happy New Year to all of you. I actually wonder if there is someone who still read this blog.... OTL

Anyway, I decided to close this blog and (already) moved to Wordpress. I chose Wordpress for its light template ^^;

I actually already thought about this several times. I got some reasons why I finally decided to close this blog and make to another one.

First, I wrote too many topics in this blog and eventually, I ended up abandoning some topics. It's just lack of focus. Where does this blog go, I'm myself not sure. Back then in my childish time, I also posted some rants from my personal life. And I feel like it's all too messy.

Second, I often posted some download links in this blog. Let me remind this again, THE UPLOADER IS NOT ME. Some people commented about the broken link(s) and asked for a re-upload. I'm terribly sorry, but since I'm not the uploader, I can't help. This thing made me thought, too. I just posted links that I found. When the links are broken, I can't help at all. Well,  I think this blog is getting useless, am I right?

Third, I really want to make a blog that has a clear direction. What is it about, where does it go to, things like that. That's why I decided to make a new blog.

So, this is my last post in this blog. All things that I had written here are still precious for me so I WILL NOT delete this blog.

My new blog is on Wordpress and you can visit it here.

It will be about action figure reviews only. Currently, the blog is still empty due to some problems I'm having now. I hope I can start it soon :)

Kara no Kyoukai: Mirai Fukuin Gets Anime


As announced in the TYPE-MOON Fes. -10th ANNIVERSARY EVENT-, Kara no Kyoukai's side story, Mirai Fukuin has been confirmed to get an animation version.

The release date is still unknown and more details will be announced later.

Mirai Fukuin is Kara no Kyoukai's side story which is divided into two parts: Mobius Ring and Mobius Link.

Mobius Ring sets in 1996 and 1998. In 1996, it mostly revolves around Shizune Seo who can predict the future. She meets Kokutou Mikiya and predicts his ill fate if he decides to stay with Shiki. While in 1998, Shiki deals with a young terrorist named Kuramitsu Meruka who also has the ability to predict the future with the special eyes that he possess.

Mobius Link sets 10 years after all the events in Kara no Kyoukai. It revolves around Ryougi Mana, Shiki and Kokutou's daughter, her ex-terrorist caretaker who happens to be Kuramitsu Meruka, and Mother Mifune, an old fortune teller.

If you haven't known about Mirai Fukuin yet and you can't wait to see the animation, you can read the story by downloading the PDF version here or read it online here.

Design For Nendoroid Snow Miku 2013 Announced

Just now on Good Smile Company's live broadcast on Nico Nico Douga, the design for Nendoroid Snow Miku 2013 has been decided with polling from fans.

This time, the broadcast also talked about Project Diva f for PS Vita and a little bit about next year's Mikupa (which will be held once again by 5pb). But I will talk about the Snow Miku only :D

As you know, yesterday Mikatan announced the four candidates:

 Snow Miku: Borage Flower Ver.

Borage flower on hear head is usually used to decorate dessert. The tip of her twin-tails are made to look like cream. The color of the entire design which has a gradient from light blue to white is made to look like ice shaved with syrup.

 Sweet Pâtissier Snow Miku

The earphones are made to look like macaroons and her ribbon on her back is made to look like a sugar sculpture.

Fresh Cream Snow Miku

The frills on her clothes are made to look like whipped cream. Her ornaments are shaped like soda candy.

Strawberry Daifuku White Kimono Miku

She has a strawberry leaf on her head and a snowflake lacing. The white kimono has snowflake pattern on it.

Then just like last year, they also held a polling to decide which design would win. As you can see, I actually chose for design number 2 xD


And the result....


THE NUMBER FOUR WON!!! So it's decided then! Nendoroid Snow Miku 2013 will be Strawberry Daifuku White Kimono Miku! Everybody was very surprised with this result!


Actually I was surprised too! This Snow Miku will make a whole new face in Snow Miku line up! Usually you would see Snow Miku in her western styled clothes but now she will be available in Japanese kimono! Isn't that interesting? ^^

And don't forget that this Strawberry Daifuku White Kimono Miku costume will also be included in Project Diva game by SEGA! ^^

Now since the design has been decided, all we gotta do is to wait for the prototype! ^^

The new project includes a new Maxi Single, a new album, a concert, and soundtracks for a 3DS videogame from Square Enix titled "BRAVELY DEFAULT".

The new Maxi Single titled 「ルクセンダルク小紀行」 (Luxendark Shokikou or Luxendark's Small Diaries in English) will be released on 22nd August 2012 while the new album, 「ルクセンダルク大紀行」 (Luxendark Daikikou or Luxendark's Big Diaries in English) will be released on 19th September 2012. The covers for the new Maxi Single and album are already visible in Linked Horizon Official Website.

A concert will also be held on 25th November 2012 in Yokohama Arena. The concert will be held twice in one day. The first one is from 12:30 PM to 01:30 PM and the second is from 05:30 PM to 06:30 PM.
