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]

Good Smile Amamiya Manami – Massugu GO!

Sometimes I miss out on the first release of figures, then what happens? I cry and cry and cry and wish I hadn’t missed out on that figure. I beg people who have that figure to sell it to me. I didn’t bother getting Manami since when she was released back in ’07 i was still buying figures based on characters i knew and loved. I had yet to see Manabi Straight so i skipped out on Manami. Then a few months later after she was sold out I watched the entire series and then cried myself to sleep at night because i missed out this this beauty.

I was very lucky to catch her on Hobby Search in the Restock section of the site. I snagged her up immediately since it’s been impossible to find her!

This energetic pose, just exuded happiness and brings me back to the feeling I got when I saw the series.

I love the bright colors, her cute pink hair with the white refection line. A nice touch since that’s how the show was animated.

Massugu GO!

The base is totally awesome, with her scooter over the water. I at first was a bit apprehensive with the stand but the metal pins keep it in perfectly!

I just adore her face! The overall quality of Manami is just so amazing, I have no complaints about her at all.

Did i slip? Nah! These are her panties!

The detail on her phone deaily is pretty badass too!

I love these backpacks! but aren’t they usually only for elementary school kids?

Manami is officially one of my most favorite figures. It’s hard for me to choose 1 figure to say as my favorite, but in a top ten with no list with no actual value among those ten of which I love most Manami would be in for sure! She is just about perfect, the pose, and sculpt just exudes confidence and that Genki-ness that is Amamiya Manami! Her paint is perfect with no hiccups, there is no noticable seam lines. Just pure perfection from Good Smile Company. Figures like this are a main reason why I buy figures and why keep collecting them after so many years. If you don’t have her, you must own her.

    I remember getting this Manabi figure. The best of all that have been released of any Manabi figures.

    Never seen the show, I tend to buy figures only from stuff I like, don’t have nearly enough money to buy all the figures I think look good (though I would love to).

    And as always great pics.

  3. I love this photoshoot! It really brings out the beauty of this figure :3

    What a kawaii, genki figure! Love the background and the shoot, it really shows her well and matches her personality to boot :3 Just looking at her makes you feel a little more upbeat!

  6. Very cute and energetic. It makes me want to finally go and watch Minabi Straight ^^;

    Yes, yes I totally agree with you and ended with a similar experience. I watched Manabi Straight long after it aired so I didn’t even knew about this one. Once I did how did I crave Manabi, it might have taken me 3 tries but I got my hands on her. Yup, must do a photoshot for her soon.

    the other Manabi figures are all just sub-par compared to this beauty

    oh it’s such an awesome show and worth the watch

    @coco the Bean:

    she is! just adorable!

    yes, i love how juts looking at her raises your own spirits

    it’s an awesome series


    @Moe Emperador:
    yep yep yep

    i can’t look at the re-stocks or i’ll end up spending tons too

  12. Figure Maniac Edwin says:

    Did you make the background? Is it your hobby to make cool back drops for all your photo shoots?

  13. I could never get into Manabi Straight. I’m not sure what it was…the show just felt like soulless moe fluff to me. This figure, however, is really eye-catching and I regret missing out on her. Maybe I’ll pick her up from Amazon.jp (but their shipping is ARGH)

    I didn’t even know she’d existed until I saw her a little while ago up on DC.com. I’m sad I missed out on it… 🙁
