Latest Loot!

Latest Loot!


…my latest loot!
This is a quick post, because I’ll soon be displaying the loot in more details.
See anything you like?
I was very lucky… found several figures that were on my priority list.
The sad part is that I wasn’t able to buy not even half of what I wanted, and I bet the next time I go to Liberdade they will not be there anymore. T_T
But can’t complain… no no no. 😛





The Diversity of Suzumiya Haruhi

21 11 2008

Awesome pic with several versions of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu anime characters:

(click the image to make it larger)
I saw several versions of this pic, but Sankaku Complex recently posted the most recent one.
I can’t read japanese, but I know among all the versions, there’s: Anime, manga, doujin, jav (japanese adult video), cosplayers, seyuus (voice actors) and some others.

I don’t see Suzumiya Haruhi-chan though. Churuya-san version is on the second column.
Kona-chan cosplaying Haruhi isn’t there also.
And I guess Haruhi figures just wouldn’t fit a chart… but it would be interesting to see all of them side by side.

If you still dunno this anime (bakabaka), take a look at Yuki figure post for more details.

Dragonball Movie: Release Date and a pic

14 11 2008

Quick update on Dragonball Movie.

Dragonball Movie

Dragonball Movie


First, this weird pic that rumors are saying is the “big ape” version of Goku.
Only it doesn’t look anything like an ape. Which isn’t much of a surprize, considering how Picollo also looks nothing like a green alien, Goku is a caucasian teen and Master Roshi has no beard.

And second: The release date. At first, it was at August 15, 2008… than, it switched to April 10, 2009, and now it’s scheduled at April 8, 2009.

Anyone else hoping it gets rescheduled to… you know, February 31, 2000 something?

Fruits Basket theatrics – by all male cast??

31 10 2008

Quick news: famous manga/anime Fruits Basket is getting a stage play… with an all male troupe. O_O

Fruits Basket

Fruits Basket

Quoting AnimeNewsNetwork:
“Gekidan Studio Life is aiming to open the production in The Galaxy Theater in Tokyo on February 25 for a two-week run. In an attempt to cast unknown actors looking for their professional stage debuts, the theatrical company has been holding auditions from October 1 to November 28. “Healthy males 23 years old or younger” can audition, although a guardian’s permission is required for minors.”

I know this isn’t unusual for a japanese play… those who know something about japanese culture will remember that Japan has a historic background where live plays could only be done by male actors.
But I dunno if I’d be able to overcome my own prejudices to watch this play… even Fruits Basket being one of my favorite animes of all times… XD
