Azusa Adventures

Time for a short filler post. I have Azone’s Azusa Nakano doll since some time now, but I still haven’t reviewed her and mastered doll photography not as much as I would like to. Buying clothes is plenty of fun though, you could say when grown up guys buy clothes for loli dolls it ends in a disaster ^o^. But I try my best to spoil the little lady from time to time.

Earlier this year in June I went on vacation to Le Castellet located in southern France, the area is the best when you desire a hot, not rainy holiday, the opposite to Germany this year.

As on every vacation I took some figures with me, Sonico PKG, Sonico Figma and little Azusa with a small set of clothes, I forgot some parts, which lead to some improvisations later on.

This post is focused on Azusa and her small adventures, it’s nothing spectacular, but since I already took the pictures, I should actually show them. Azusa went swimming, even though she can’t even float, tree climbing in questionable wardrobe and buying bread in the sticks.

Cerberus header

Based on Shingeki no Bahamut, a popular smartphone and tablet Game, Max Factory manufactured Cerberus, the cute dog from hell. I love cute demon girl characters, danger mixed with some cuteness is something I really appreciate in anime media and figures.

I tried to play the Game, but after many crashes I was fed up after a few days of playing, maybe the Game was buggy or my late Xperia U couldn’t met the requirements. Nevertheless the Game has a nice concept, it is one of those card collecting things. A distinctive feature of Shingeki no Bahamut are elaborate character artworks with rich details you would not expect from a simple flash game. Especially the demon class character designs are super appealing.

Do you have a favorite character design in Shingeki no Bahamut?
There are many great designs, but I really like Lilith+, it would be great to see a figure of her.

Are you up for some more Wonder Festival 2014 material, in this second part we will take a look at the coverage from some more figure manufacturers which took part in the event.

It’s always a strange phenomenon at Wonder Festival, the less popular companies seldom get the attention from photographers as for example GSC, therefore we people in front of the screen must be happy with less quality pictures. Well, I guess it’s still better than nothing,

The new summer Wonder Festival figure & GK fair is close, before a new figure avalanche begins, I want to take a look at the figures that caught my interest in the last few months.

I didn’t place any figure preorder lately, not that there wasn’t any appealing stuff for me, but somehow I feel quite conservative about preorders at the moment. I can’t really put my finger on it, but it might have something to do with rising prices, 10.000 Yen have became common for regular 1/8 scaled figures. Also the sheer amount of figures make it difficult to decide for one figure out of a bunch of really pretty figures. I thought just with waiting would sort out things by itself and I could see my priorities more clear. It worked a bit actually, but not as efficient as I imagined it to be. Hey selling some things might end my misery at once.
