Our apartment – 2016 NSFW

It's been not only a long time since I've posted here, but it has been a long time since I shared photos of my place. The last time you guys saw where I lived I was still living at home with my parents. It was back in 2012, so easily 4 years ago you saw my collection. Now you can see not only has my… [more]

[Alter] – Melty Review

So since I've moved into my new apartment I still hadn't set up my photography studio. Seems work has me busier than I thought I would ever be, however I took some time this past weekend to set up my studio so I could take some photos of my latest purchase, Alter's 1/8th Melty from Shining Hearts. Now… [more]

[Orchid Seed] – Yuki Review NSFW

Pre-ordered this figure the moment she was released for pre-order. I needed for for multiple reasons, she's sexy/half naked, plus while she's not Sora she reminds me of Sora from Yosuga no Sora! But she's Yuki from Maid Yome and she's pretty amazing. The only issue is her adorable mouth really looks… [more]

Nendoroid Storage Container

I recently went on a trip to a magical place, The Container Store. Ok it's not really magical, but I happen to have discovered a love for organizing my home. I tend to prefer Ikea and Daiso but we went to The Container Store on a whim and I discovered this lovely storage container! I've been needing… [more]

Pajama Party with Miyama Yuna

When it comes to anime there are some series that stick with you, there are some that you liked but never really just cross your mind again, and there are gateway series. When I was younger and just started watching anime a series that I had seen in the early years was Maburaho.

I don’t remember much about Maburaho other than that I did enjoy it and it’s silliness. Wasn’t the best series ever made and when I started collecting figures it wasn’t so memorable enough to find a Maburaho figure.

So the other day when I went to Small Wonders and spotted this Yuna figure I was blown away, I didn’t even know they made Maburaho figures.

Now Yuna here is a pretty old figure, released in 2004 I’m so amazed that I even found her!

For an old figure and even for a Chara-Ani figure her detail is pretty good.

Little cast-off feature, you can remove part of her pajama shirt, kind of pointless.

Plus a nasty gap between her stomach and her top.

Now as I mentioned for a 2004 figure she’s pretty good. You can’t compare her to the quality of Good Smile, Max Factory, Alter, Megahouse, or Kotobukiya figures now since they all have upped their quality over the years. My only complaint is that the paint on her legs is very shiny and very glossy, the rest of her is great but her legs are so very glossy it’s distracting. There is a noticeable gap in her shirt but I can live with it and her legs have some seam lines. Other than that her eyes are so very cute, her hair and her green clips are very nicely done, it’s a cute pose and nicely sculpted. The only other Chara-Ani figure I have that I can compared her to is a Ren figure from Dears I bought on impulse a few years back, not the best figure and compared to that figure, Yuna is wonderful. But I don’t know much of Chara-Ani’s work so I can’t really say much.

    Oh that’s a rare figure and a pretty well made some as you mentioned since it’s dated 2004. Agreed with the shiny legs but the cute expression more than makes up for the small deficiency

    Gratz on another rare acquisition!

    It isnt that her legs are glossy! They are just fresh shaved! ^^
    Looking good for a 4 year old figure

    @Kairu Ishimaru:
    yep she’s a cutie

    yeah her legs are the only bad part of this entire figure

    yep the pose is adorable

    yep, amazed she’s so good yet so old

    thank goodness they stopped making them glossy

    thanks, it’s so fun to play with

    hahahahha good one, but hey legs do look glossy like that once shaved

    @Coco the Bean:
    i love her hair, at least her hair isn’t glossy too

    the series was a favorite of mine when i first started watching anime a while back

    @Otaku Dan:
    yep, general consensus agrees

    I didn’t realize they made a figure of her either. I encountered Maburaho a few series into the true beginning of my anime addiction and was underwhelmed by it. I did like the look of Yuna though. I agree that gap she has when her PJ middle is on is real big. Personally I’d display it without it just to avoid showing that gap.
