Project Haruhi First Anniversary Contest Winner!

We asked you, the readers, to help us come up with a witty and fun tagline that would suit this website. Well, congratulations to Kamanashi for the winning comment! Project Haruhi: We're not interested in ordinary cartoons is definitely something Haruhi herself would say and captures the vibe of the website perfectly.

Kamanashi, please forward your contact details to ryoko[at] projectharuhi.net and we shall send you your prize, a $50 gift certificate for J-List. Once again, congratulations!

Figure Fever: Good Smile Senjougahara Hitagi

Posted by Chris

Good Smile have finally released some preview coloured photos of their yet to be released Senjougahara Hitagi figure. Now if you are like me and adore figures, you have been drooling over this since you caught that first glimpse of an unpainted prototype. So get ready to grab the napkin (or bucket) and behold!

Figure Fever: Seena

Posted by Chris

One of the latest offerings from Goodsmile is the "Red Rose Cavalier" Seena, from the JRPG game Shining Wind. Before I delve any further into bluster about how I have already preordered Seena, it should be known by you, dear reader, that she is based on designs by the well known manga artist Tony Taka. Know of him? You should. A simple google search will "reveal" a huge amount about this fellow and his art. Explore his world, if you will, but be warned: you can never turn back. And don't research his doings while you are at work either...be told. More after the jump...

Tokyo Animation Fair 2010

Posted by Chris

Just a short post before I make my way westwards in my journey of life and career. This year there have been lots of prototype figures released that all have the potential to blow my mind as well as my wallet; chief of whom is Senjogahara Hitagi from the SHAFT anime series Bakemonogatari.

Akiyama Mio On The Brain Part Two

Posted by Chris

Recently I posted about a new K-ON! figure of Akiyama Mio, and upon reading you may have sensed, through the marvels of the interweb, my prolific drooling. Well prepare for another onslaught as Kyoani have finally posted colour pictures and opened up preordering for this 1/8th scale lovely, retailing for 8,000 yen. More after the jump.

Do You Have Akiyama Mio On The Brain?

Posted by Chris

Okay, its been a few months now. My over inflated negative opinion on K-ON! has cooled a bit, such that now I can just appreciate the sheer merchandise cash cow the series has become. Even now, Kyo-ani are still milking away furiously with calloused fingers producing memorabilia like K-ON! backpacks. However while a lot of these products are just sheer wastes of  hard earned moula, this new figure of Akiyama Mio is drop-dead gorgeous. More after the jump.

Figure Bliss: Akiyama Mio

Posted by Chris

Akiyama Mio is gracing our screens yet again. Except I believe this is the best adaptation of her stage costume in figure form I have seen yet. She is gorgeous.

Figma Heaven ~ Vocaloid Kagami and Co

Posted by Chris

It really is turning out to be Kagami idol day for me. Kagabobo-whatever-its-name-is (see previous post) ticked me of such that I decided to pose my Lucky Star Figmas. I apologize in advance for all the drivel that may be evident in this post...but would you just look at this lot!

Kagami is seriously pissed at having to dress up as Hatsune Miku (watch the OVA), much to Konata's delight. Tsukasa records all on her cell, while Miyuki just smiles...
