Random Anione polls – 23/06/2013 – 29/06/2013

Technically this only covers until half of the 29th, because I’ll be busy this weekend. However this post does contain the rest of the spring series-specific character rankings. Next week’s rankings are postponed because I will be in LA for AX.

Summer 2013 anime expectations

Where I give my expectations for each show in anywhere from 1-100 words.

Blue = Watching
Dark Blue = Possibility of watching exists
Black = No.

There are enough outstanding things this season that I’ll more likely mark something vaguely interesting as black rather than dark blue. Only covering TV series because OVAs just end up being about what I’ve already watched anyway.

Alter Laura Bodewig -Maid ver.- 1/8 PVC figure

The other half of my shipment! さすがAlter… my phone camera just doesn’t do it justice. She’s so pretty ;_;

Adjustable parts:
– Hair (normal or TWINTAILS!!!)
– Eyepatch on or off
– Expression (stern or blushing)
– Hand (holding a tray with teapot & teacup, or holding a gun)

This is my first Alter figure and I am very satisfied. Detailing is great, twintails+blushing combo is ultra cute, and of course, a frilly maid dress. Socks, shoes, and base are also classy. And in true Alter detail, if you remove the top part of the gun, you can see the bullet inside. My only gripe is that there isn’t a view where you can see both her face and the front of the apron. Other than that, it’s perfect~

Aquamarine IA -ARIA ON THE PLANETES- 1/8 PVC figure

This arrived together with Alter’s Laura Bodewig maid! Aquamarine is fairly new to the figure industry so I was concerned about the quality, especially with the steep price tag (¥9,975!!!) but it was pretty enough for me to take the leap anyway and preorder it.

You can tell that a lot of detail went into the hair. She has so much hair! There are plastic stands to help keep it in place although it seemed fine on its own to me. Guess they didn’t want to take any chances with it. Her design is quite nice, although some of the fine details could use some work. But it’s a new company so my expectations weren’t very high anyway.
