Frame Arms Girl – Materia Normal Version

Welcome back to a revived and alternate Busou Shinki line named ‘Frame Arms Girl’! I need to thank Kotobukiya for keeping it alive in one manner or another. I also, on a whim, also purchased this lovely ‘Materia’ in curiousity to see what the fuss was all about.

– Surprised at the size of the delivery & main box. Quite a nice simplistic box art that I love.

[Parfom] Yuudachi Kai Ni Figure

POI! Yuudachi finally managed to arrive at my naval base after a few months of delay, and a little while longer enroute from her base in Japan. She was a nice lovely gift gifted to me by a long-time Busou Shinki comrade from early summer. This Yuudachi is made by Phat & is a Parform figure.

– My lovely Yuudachi finally arriving from AmiAmi’s departure zone, and with a cute card to boot.

Busou Shinki – Mizuki Type 2 – Type Ninja

Greetings! Mizuki unexpectedly arrived on Monday, soon after I received my cradles arrivals from HLJ for about $61 CAD. She is indeed a very awesome figure, surprising me at ever part equip stage that I ended up taking loads of images of her. I wanted to take images of Mizuki for as long as possible but I had to post this.

Also, if you want,  you may consider this article a continuation  of – My History with Anime.

I spy with my little eye something that is….Orange & white, has a “d” logo, and with a name that means future. Who could that be? Danny choo’s mascot – Mirai! I’ve obtained my Figma Mirai from J-List. Why not? Everybody else seemed to have went with AmiAmi but eh…let’s create our own unique path!
