1/7 Lancer Kiyohime Figurine


 Since i played Fate Grand Order last month, i keep more in tune with the merchandises related to this Hit Mobile Phone Game. One of the new Servant from the game that caught my interest is Kiyohime and her Summer event version is getting a figure treatment by Phat Company. The figure will be released on August next year with the 14800 Yen Price tag. Long gone the days of  affordable figurine as i had Caster Tamamo made by Phat for the half price of this figurine. In the FGO Game, Kiyohime original class is Berserker though she fought like Caster and in the Summer Event she changed into Lancer class which the one that got the figure treatment. Kiyohime is depicted as Yandere servant yearning for her master's affection since she thought Gudao/Gudako was the reincarnation of her love who she accidentally killed in the past. To be honest i don't mind getting this figure but i still prefer her berserker outfit in particular her second stage one. But i suppose the main deciding point would be the FGO Summer Event which NA server will be getting next year.

SCM Soul of Gold Sagittarius Aiolos Review


 Since i am a Sagittarius i think this is the right opportunity to make a review for my Sagittarius God Cloth. This My First Saint Cloth Myth and likely the last one too since i don't really follow Saint Seiya series. Got this one for 10000 Yen from my company after some cashback campaign which is very good deal for these kind of products. Arguably this a Review of Saint Seiya Myth Cloth product from Non Saint Seiya Follower.

Persona 3 Figma 049 Aigis Review


 Since i got Figma for Makoto Yuki, i might as well complete my collection for Persona 3 which Aigis was the only one left. Aigis, being the flagship mecha waifu, got her Figma back in early days of the Lineup predating way before Makoto Yuki's figma. Since i just need to complete my set, i didn't mind getting a preowned Copy for Aigis. I had a choice between the Ultimax Version or the Regular version and chose the latter. Becose i dont find over encumbered armaments fit the Aesthetics for Aigis who is more suited as precise and lethal killing machine over sheer firepower.

Soul Of Chogokin GX-70 Mazinger Z DC Chrome Noir Ver Mini Review


 Got another chance to do a mini review again since recently we got some Tamashii Nation Exclusive that are requested by my boss to be presented for local toy community for review. As i was asked to watch over the session, i got opportunity to fondle these expensive toys yet again. There are three items for the community to sample and one of them is SOC Mazinger. As I haven't had any SOC in my collection so far, it is a great learning lesson for this High End Toy Lineup by Bandai.

Aoshima 1/48 ARX-8 Laevatein


 It took Three Years for Aoshima to catch up with Kotobukiya but finally they release their 1/48 Laevatein in preparation of the new anime season. The kit will be released on April Next Year with 5800 Yen Price tag, a little bit more expensive than Kotobukiya's take. I will most likely get this kit as my physical representation for Laevatein considering i was pleased with the FMP that i had which were made by Aoshima, To be honest i still prefer Arbalest over Laevatein because the latter got jobbed so much with its little screen time. I hope Aoshima is generous enough to release 1/48 for Belial as well.

1/144 RG Unicorn Mini Review


 Have been asked to assemble RG Unicorn for work purposes and took some liberties of taking some shots for this kit before handing it to my company. Since I only collect 1/100 Scale for gundam. Real Grade is out of my Radar. However i am quite amazed with the progress reached by Bandai's engineering represented by this RG Unicorn. Since the shots for this review is hastily taken, the photo quality is not as good as usual. But i will do it better next time if i have another opportunity.

AFA SG 2017


 This makes my second time i attend Anime Fair Asia convention in Singapore and i suppose working in Toy industry does change your view on this kind of event. While AFA SG is definitely better organized than the indonesian counterpart i find this year's event to be really lacking. What ticks me off the most is that sizable amount of the venue space are used by Kadokawa to spread their rubbish. As for the shopping part in AFA Venue, i find it to be lackluster. I guess Singapore also had a hard time this year as resellers find difficulties to dump off their products considering the major ones still sell stuffs from last year's AFA. I am still willing to give AFA SG a chance but it is not longer a must go event in my book. Unfortunately i doubt it will get any better as Japanese hobby will get more expensive as time goes by.

Yami Starting Fate Grand Order


 Never thought i would touched this Gacha Game but it seems that curiosity gets the better of me. Being an oldguard of Type Moon series, My disdain toward Type Moon with the direction took with Fate series still remains. However as i gave FGO a try for a week, my opinion toward this game got slightly better. Now i can see why this game is one of the most popular Gacha Game out there, and to be honest, the FGO gameplay mechanics is quite good. In a way, Mobage serves really well for Fate as it provides the means to keep the interest of the series high longer than the time length than your regular video game could do. My main gripe with FGO is still with Oversexualized or Historically innacurate characters plaguing the servant Rosters. I am willing to play the game but compromising on the point that i will never use Servant characters that i find to be distasteful which probably constitute around 60-70%. Speaking of SSR, i happen to get Scathach as my first SSR which i even got it from my First roll. And apparently my friend said it will cause some serious amount of Salt because Scathach is one of the most highly sought servant in the game.

HGUC 1/144 MS-15 KG Gyan Krieger


 For Gunpla i only care about 1/100 Scale Master Grade or its equivalent but this is another Exception straight after PG Exia i suppose. Slated for next year as P-Bandai exclusive with 1800 Yen, we are getting a model kit for Gyan Krieger at last! Gyan Krieger is an original Mobile Suit from Gihren's Greed being the Ultimate MS from Gyan family tree, Gyan Krieger serves as the counterpart of Gelgoog Jager should Zeon choose Gyan for its mainstay MS line. In Shin Gihren it is not the best unit Zeon could field in OYW but this thing literally murder everything in Melee! I had nightmares when i play EFSF campaign when facing these units but when i played as Zeon, i steamroll every EFSF unit that caught into melee with Krieger. As much as i love this MS, i won't be getting the kit since i only collect 1/100 Scale kits. Here is the Bios for Gyan Krieger from Shin Gihren

Thermae Romae


 By far this is probably the best manga that was based on Roman Period and it was an award winning too. Ad Astra might come close but Thermae Romae simply is the best of its kind for making a solid series using Bath as the theme which straight makes it one of a kind manga. Taking on the period of Five Good Emperor Period, Thermae Romae narrates the story of a Roman Public Bath Engineer, Lucius Modestus. Whenever Lucius in need of inspiration, he somehow transported into Modern Japan and got into misadventure and gaining his needed inspirations in the process. Using Bath as a manga theme might sound weird but the Mangaka did a good job to keep the story interesting. The Mangaka couldn't done without intimate knowledge of Roman Civilization which she probably got from her study in Italy. Thermae Romae has finished its serialization in 6 Volumes which has got official translation though u can still find it hosted online even though it is harder to find. One of these days i probably give the movie a watch too despite FujiTV cheated the mangaka for her IP right.
