My Favorite Anime – Top 7 – Round 5

Hello again! As I long decided that this would be bi-monthly, I didn’t want to miss out on ruining the bi-monthly bit of this which would of turned this into a tri-monthly thing. Well, what other Animes are worth watching that I can recommend? There are some Anime airing this season, and that I’m watching that I want to highly recommend. I can’t because I haven’t completed them. I’ve been itching to add them, but resisting. I already did mention quite a few that were awesome, so what else is there? Half are going to oldies so I hope you don’t ignore them because they aged!

Tulip Festival ’11 & Renge’s Sushi Appetite.

Went to the Tulip Festival again, this time for the international pavilion. I went there to see what was new and to see if I could get anything for my uh….demanding fox spirit – Renge. And I always keep forgetting that weekends keep bringing out all the tourists and locals. I could barely walk or even take proper images of tulips, Renge, the food, or see what is up for sale.  Was a nice hot day though, worth the trip to see the tent.

Busou Shinki – Fubuki – Type Ninja

I got another review for you guys/gals, and this I have Shinki Fubuki! She is a type ninja with fox traits. Though, her legging shows a bird-like appearance. You can try Konami Style (Japan domain), Mandarake, or even E-Bay. I obtained mine from Mandarake for about $100 CAD, after a few very noobish happenings, with her arriving just this Friday.

Tulip Festival ’11 – Renge

Spring sure is slow this year around. I mean, last year we had the hottest spring while this year we had the most delayed one. Global warming? Global climate change? If anything, nothing stays the same for long so patterns tend to change. Same could actually be said to the format of the Tulip Festival. I’ll go with a bit of a prologue and a recap while showing my lovely Renge twins as they curiously climb up tulips on a very nice cloudless windy day.

Battle Rondo – Tsugaru – Type Santa Claus

I activated Tsugaru on April 30th and thought I’d try and review her Battle Rondo side. I gave her some attention in Diorama studio, but couldn’t in Rondo due to her being added in Battle Rondo. She’s a lovely, jolly, and adorable girl. Her cuteness even rivals that of Renge and Kohiru! And because she wasn’t around when I reviewed her figure she gets her own little article in her Battle Rondo form.

Minecraft – Arctic Kitsune’s realm.

Ah, never thought I’d show Minecraft on my blog. However, this game is brutally addicting and it deserves some form of respect from me so I shall give it a swift spotlight before switching back to Anime related material. Survive with a cube-e-cube world.

(Note: Pardon the already known information, simply “reviewing” Minecraft while inserting my images and video embeds. This article also wanted to be seen because it didn’t want to wait till the 19th of May, the time I told it to get posted.)

Ottawa – Algonquin Figure&Dollfie meet

Hello again! This time I got a re-cap of a sudden figure.fm meet-up from April 30th that Kodama suddenly requested. We both met up at the beautiful Algonquin College’s Garden area. I brought over my beloved Busou Shinkis and props while he brought his newly adopted Dollfie and Figmas. The weather was very nice during that day as well.

Figma Luka Megurine – Vocaloid

Oh? Whats this? A Figma? Yes, I’m still interested in Figma’s, even though I’ve been going Shinki-crazy the past few months thanks to Shinki Renge haha! I’ve obtained Luka from my local AnimeStop on April 27th. I’ve been seeking her ever since she released and had a bit of trouble getting her within my grasp. I’ve been a bit lucky that she hasn’t sold out in the same way as Rider and Kos-Mos have!

The Battle Between Shinki Renges

Hello again! Been a bit more than a month? Nothing was happening in April so I decided I might as well move the site onto a new server. It took a bit longer than expected, thus the 1-2 weeks of down-time, so I got a bit of a backlog spawning. Was expecting it to only be a two day thing, though my host was being busy with his things so it ended up being longer. Well anyways, here are some images from mid-April. Both my Renge’s got into a bit of a fight….
