Toradora is getting dark. I LIKE IT. It’s about time the story has thrown away its total comedy policy and give us some serious drama and development. I was surprised when Kihara started becoming really aggressive in attempting to be with Kitamura, though I don’t see her having any plan to take advantage of it. Meanwhile, the entire class has been lagging on the love tangle that’s going on now and it’s not helping.

*SPOILER WARNING*

Tsundere x Awesome = Win Win Win. The Epitome of Beauty and Harmony of the Universe has finally come upon us! Tsundere princess Kagami has finally appeared in our physical world mixed in with the internet idol Hatsune Miku, the current Goddess of Sound! Finally tangible, we must all praise Good Smile Company highly for creating such an awesome figma. Let us not forget Kyoto Animation too, which pulled off one of the most amazing cosplay mixups in anime history! Kagami and Miku is a harmonization akin to the combined singing of the Muses. More pics after the jump.

Okay, so a short while ago I managed to get my hands on a Wonderfest Exclusive figma EX001 Konata Cosplay figma. I was pretty late to the game so I had to pay a small premium on top of the figure.But it was worth it.

Today, I got home and saw the two of them fighting. I only managed to get the camera out at the last few seconds since Shana was slashing away at everything while Yuki was dodging, her katana almost cut me. I only managed some pictures after Shana’s katana broke at the hands of Yuki. She went berserk after that. Here goes!

Ok here’s probably the last of a series of very closely spaced posts on figmas after my figma shopping spree. Today we’ll open the entire cast of Lucky Star characters and put them on my shelf. I got this from beNippon if you were curious, and they’ve been very honest with me, even refunding some of my shipping when they charged too much. Kudos to them and honest traders for the win.

This time I’m gonna review my newly opened Shakugan no Shana figma. I actually opened this at the same time I opened Hayate, but soon after I opened Hayate I was left with only an episode of Index before bedtime so I decided to postpone this post. The next few posts will be about my newfound collection of Lucky Star characters. I’m not sure how I should do those posts since there are 4 of them. I might just do them all at once now since this site is fast becoming a figma bragsite, and no longer an anime blog. However, this post would probably still matter because there are probably some of you out there who are still deciding on whether or not to spend 2500 yen on Shana.

Having read Michael’s post on Toradora 20 and his vivid description of astonishment at the changes Taiga underwent after Christmas got me thinking about the changes Taiga underwent too (After reading the post before that he must have haeted Taiga quite a bit). I watched that episode again, and sure enough, Taiga wasn’t the same anymore, but what happened to Minorin was actually even more surprising. I decided I had to say something about this, but after trying to say a few words in his comment box, I decided I was writing quite a bit and decided that this means it should be a blog post instead.

After much delay, I have finally gotten in to do a Yagami Hayate figma review. This figma is one of the ones that I liked less, and I’ll show you in a moment why that is. For those of you who don’t know who Hayate is or related it to some boy who always dresses up like a trap at the whims of his master, this isn’t it. This is Yagami Hayate from Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS, not Aya**** Hayate. If you haven’t watched StrikerS, you should, now go buy the DVDs.

Toradora 20 is finally kicking up some dust as Taiga decides to stop clinging to Ryuuji and let Minorin approach him better. ITS ABOUT TIME. I could so relate to Minorin not being able to get close to Ryuuji because Taiga is always hanging around him. It took this daft girl a while to figure that out. Meanwhile, lets have a look at what’s going on with Minorin this time!
