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]

Hirasawa Yui Azone Doll

Kinda sorta review this time, never had a “Doll” before. Now I’ve owned dolls, tons of barbies, and such when I was younger but never any one of these types of dolls.  The most expensive “Doll” I’ve ever gotten before! I figure it’s also great practice for when I save money for my Dolfie Yoko!

Of course had to get the cutest and my favorite K-on! girl Yui! I know everyone is bonkers for Mio but while she’s a cutie I rather prefer the energetic, hyper, silly characters. Yui is the epitome of the type of characters I love and see very close to my own personality as well.

Hugging her precious Giita!

Now I can’t full review her and tell you the pros and cons, when this is my only doll I have nothing else to compare her to other than my old barbies. But I figure pictures speak louder than words, so have a few pictures! You’ll have more soon as well! I’m  leaving for London, United Kingdom and then Paris, France today! I’ll be taking Yui with me to enjoy the wonderful sights! See what crazy hi-jinks she gets herself into!

You can now follow me on

  1. She’s quite cute :3
    Recently acquired the Mio and Ritsu dolls but still prefer this Yui ^^

    You’re so lucky you get to travel to so many places! Have fun!
    As for the Yui (who is my favourite character form the series as well), the only thing that really bothers me is her lack of neck?

  3. LilSeebs says:

    a Pure Neemo huh?
    Those are the best (and a whole lot cheaper than super dollife, that’s for sure.)

  4. pterodactyl says:

    I-it looks like she doesn’t have a neck!
    Either way she is very cute.

  5. K says:

    That is one beautiful doll @_@. her face resembles the character very well :3. GIIIITAAAA! XD

  6. IshokuOsero says:

    I had to get Yui also, she’s so adorable! Definitely my favorite K-on! girl, and I’m getting really sick of seeing Mio absolutely everywhere I look…

    Either way, I have a few pictures of Yui up on my blog also, she’s too cute not to take photos of!


    I love her so much, haha. She’s my first anime doll as well.

  7. Flip says:

    Not my cup of tea, I do sort of like the way Dolfies look but as a guy I think thats a bad thing…

    LONDON! I love London, I lived there for a semester and was happy with the city I was living in every day I was there. I think fondly of those days often 🙂 I hope to go back again someday. But before that! I need to go somewhere else first! JAPAN! I already have a few hundred dollars saved specifically for the trip I plan on taking in 2 years.

  9. andy says:

    omg i rely want this yui doll i love how cute she is and hay its not weird i love cute things!!!

  10. icitea says:

    Eee! Yui <3 She looks a litte stuffed into her clothes around the neck though… is that an Azone pecularity…? Congrats on getting your first Doll, by the way.

    How articulate are her joints?

    • Dancing Queen says:

      Nah i just pushed her head into her neck a little too hard, didn’t notice until after these pictures were up >_< The joints move well enough but I've heard there are better bodies for these particular Azone dolls

  11. breeman says:

    Sweet figure! Giita looks very detailed too. What would be awesome would be a robotic version of this you could plug an iPod into and it would play along to your music XD

  12. MG says:

    Awww! Yui is so adorable. I love how nicely detailed Giita is, too.

  13. I never have liked Azone’s dolls. They just look too cheap to me. Then again, I may just be spoiled since I already have a Dollfie Dream Nia.

  14. Max Lingley says:

    Not a doll fan myself, maybe because I’m a guy? Looks nice for what it is though.

  15. Otaku4Ever says:

    I’ve always wondered why people would buy dolfies which are meant to represent a character from an anime? They bear not much of a resemblence and I’d rather have a completely unique doll.

  16. Jaeten says:

    Hey all, had fun reading your discussion and wanted to join in. I’m a figure collector but never had a doll until I pre-ordered Kanata from Sora no wo to recently. Just couldn’t resist, too cute and love the outfit.

    I guess my question is, how weird is it to collect Azone or Dollfie dolls as a guy? A couple of you commented on that, I’d love to hear more thoughts on that. Not that it’d stop me from getting my Kanata!

    • Actar says:

      Beleve me, it’s mot weird at all. Most of the people who buy and collect dolls are guys. Besides, guys like girls, it’s the natural order of things.

      Tell the people who subscribe to the common stereotype that Dolls are for girls that. (^.^)

      • jaeten says:

        Thanks Actar, glad to hear that! It does make sense, since so a majority of figures seem to be of girl characters (it seems like there are at least 150 Kanu Unchou figures with her clothes in various stages of ripped-upness). Glad to know it isn’t too different for the dolls, and man I can’t wait for Kanata to arrive later this month
