1/8 PVC Figure- Toyosatomimi no Miko [Griffon Enterprise]

Well, this is my first post..

It’s a 1/8  PVC scale Touhou Project Figure – Toyosatomimi No Miko- released at Late July 2012 from Griffon Enterprise..

it’s the first Griffon’s Touhou figure of the “Ten Desires” game..and the last Boss at that..


start from the Box, it’s kinda different from the lastest series i’ve known.
They actually crop the Front box picture of the figure, which  the box design become more neat from what i thought..

This is the back of the box. nice art, i love the combination of colours they use for her box ^_^


Now the figure.. and i use the box background inside the box figure which is quite nice ..

(actually i don’t have time for taking a nice background yet -_-)

she’s the only figure that i bought because i thought she look’s cute for Griffon’s usual overal.. (other being Satori,and Hina).

she comes with two accecories, one being her Sword Seven Star Sword (七星剣 Shichi-sei ken) – a Taoism sword known to be worn by Prince Shoutoku(<wikia) and a shaku.

ow yeah, her headphone doesn’t coun’t as accecories for me, since it was already attached.

the ropes behind her back actually can be attached as well, but i don’t need that. her hand is quite a grip 😀


Her Stand.

ohhh yea.. i forgot about her Shoes. which actually the ++ mark for the figure. =_=’

the shoes is very well painted, the combination of Gold and White with smooth slender legs…


Rotation


the belt on the front kinda nice looking too, with some decorated flowers(?)


anddd editedd,idk, i know it’s still no good, but i hope it’s better than the last time.. XD.


Culture Japan Night – Jakarta 2012

Another late review of event…
This time I want to share my experience visiting Culture Japan Night…
Most of photos here were taken by Yoga, a friend of mine…

Culture Night Japan – Jakarta 2012 was held by Culture Japan President, Danny Choo…

This event originally was planned to be held at Mall Taman Anggrek…
But, under some circumstances, the placed was moved to Hotel Borobudur…
It was my luck… if it was held in Mall Taman Anggrek… probably I couldn’t attend Culture Japan Night…
Hotel Borobudur is near from my office… a few hundred meters distance…
So, I went there after work… still using my office uniform… xD




I arrived there approx 17.30… and the place was already filled with a lot of people…





One point that interested me…
This event is where the first official Moekana Tournament was held…

The best three got special prizes…
Mirai Music Album that hasn’t been release yet… Mirai T-shirt… and artwork+signature from Dr.Vee and Danny Choo…

And the tournament…





And the winners… along with Danny Choo, Dr. Vee, and the cosplayers…



Apart of the tournament, you could talk, or take photos with Danny, or make him sign any stuffs you brought…
I asked him if he would make a game or two based on Mirai-chan… and he answered that he will develop and make them surely…
And also I got my AKB0048 and ID card signed…

This picture is The Otaku Network leader (NeoHybridKai; left) and the photographer (Yoga; right) along with Danny Choo holding Wedang Jahe Kalengan “Dry Ginger”…

Some of The Otaku Network members…

The special guests…



And the following photos are the ota-stuffs that were brought by the attendants or already there placed by officials…
If I know this earlier, I would bring my Keine figure from my office…





























I guess that’s all…
and this final photo was taken by official…


Journey Through Anime Festival Asia – Indonesia 2012

Finally I can write this article…
Maybe it’s too late to make a review of Anime Festival Asia – Indonesia (AFAID) that was held in the beginning of September at Jakarta International Expo…

I went there both days… but, I only entered exhibition and stage area… I didn’t attend the Super Anisong Stage…
So, the review is mostly from the Exhibition Hall…

First of all… I went there in the morning… but ticketing queue already long…
What I must say here is… the ticketing system was awfully bad… I bought the ticket on the spot for few minutes, but my friends who already purchased ticket by pre-order, they took 3 hours to redeem the ticket… my friends arrived earlier than me…
Ticketing Queue Level: Indonesia

After that I entered the JIExpo area… ticket check…



Thus, I directly entered Exhibition Hall…
Actually I’m only interested with Good Smile Company and Culture Japan booths…
I must say that the area is too small… under my expectation…

This location picture was taken by my friend in the very morning…

As I entered exhibition stage… there was large dueling ground… Bushiroad Vanguard tournament was held there…

In the edge of the room, you can see a Moe-Moe Kyun Maid Cafe and Ateller Royale Buttler Cafe…
I intended to go there, but after seeing super long queue, I dropped my want…

Next… there was a local bookstore that also opened a booth…

S.H.Figuarts Indonesia also opened booth… they displayed their collection there…
S.H.Figuarts Indonesia is a group for people who loves collecting S.H.Figuarts line action figures… I’m actually also the member of it…


Next to S.H.Figuarts Indonesia booth, you could see the Nendonesia booth…
Nendonesia is a group of people who loves collecting Nendo line products…


Next one is Video Game Indonesia stand…
They held a Persona 4 tournament…

There was also Canvas Ranger booth… they caught my attention…
Apparently, they made a family card game that is called Pet Wars
The characters in the card game are taken and adjusted from Indonesia-based ghost, event, etc…



ANIMAX booth… they featured and played Eureka Seven: AO anime in the stage hall…

Also… there was a Gatsby booth…
I didn’t take any photo of their booth… so, you better see this advertisement video instead…
This video was played a lot in the stage hall =_=;a

Actually there were more booths such as Sony Music, AFA Shop, etc…
Most of them were selling collectible goods…



And now… I would like to share some photos that were taken in Good Smile Company booth…
They sell a lot of Vocaloid Nendoroid (pretty mainstream), some of Idolm@ster Petite, and Moekana packs (both standard and booster pack)…
Actually, I’m more interested to display-only items…



Culture Japan booth…
Miraiception Level: Danny Choo…
This booth displayed mostly Mirai-related stuffs… posters, figures, dollfies, software, cards, ita-car, etc…
Along side the booth, I also attended Culture Japan Talkshow in the Main Stage by Danny Choo… and appearance of special guest Takanori Aki the Good Smile Company Director…
Because of Danny’s presentation, I’m bit interested to Mirai-chan… and also, he is a good motivator actually…
I guess I should buy if the scaled figure is released by Max Factory later day…
Too bad, photograph is prohibited in the stage…









Following section is for you who interested with cosplay thing…
I only took a few photos…
Among the photos below, only 0048 Takamina and Flandre that were taken by me… the rest were taken by my friends Vaporizel and Zield

This video is from official…

Actually there were a lot more cosplayers… but, I can’t upload them all…
I noticed there were 2 Flandre, 2 Marisa, Youmu, Tewi, and Patchouli…



That’s all that I can post…
Btw, this is a photo taken by official during day…
Crowd level: Indonesia…



Since I didn’t attend Super Anisong Stage during that days… you can read the review in my friends’ blog in Bahasa Indonesia though…



In the end… I only bought Moekana Cards from GSC booth…





EXTRA – 3 DAYS AFTER AFAID…

He is friend of mine that stayed few nights in my living place before he returned to Yogyakarta again…


希望について [Type-B] Limited Edition

I usually don’t buy CD album… But, I’m interested to AKB0048 anime…
The anime itself is… idol story added with robot wars…
Its characters based on real-life AKB48… I don’t have knowledge about AKB48 though…

I bought this album from CD Japan and it arrived a week ago…
I took the limited one… because if you buy regular edition, you won’t get bonus DVD which contains PV and video making…



Front cover…

Back cover…

Booklet, CD, DVD, and Kanata photo (AR Card) as bonus…
I expected that I got Chieri photo… T.T

The differences are in their cover and their bonus DVD content…
