Comment on Dolls vs Figures: “Are Ball Joints Really That Sexy?” by Imyou:

Avatar of Imyou

Doll joints look like really nasty prosthetic limbs, and the hair and faces often look creepy too.

Figures are like 3D snapshots of 2D characters. To be fair, sometimes the faces on those are pretty awful too, but it’s rarer and not on purpose.

Figmas are cool, just because they hide the joints skillfully when they can.

    Searched おじモン on Canadian Apple store… found. Confirmed it’s available outside Japan.

    Do you know the eyeglass market in Japan? (I don’t…) It could just be that they’re not under the thumb of the Luxottica price fixing cartel over there. I order prescription eyeglasses from the USA (via China I suspect) for $10-20 sometimes and they work great. With modern tech there’s no good excuse for glasses costing upward of $100 unless they’re crafted as fine jewelry.

    “Circle lenses” – they make your irises look bigger, so if you open your eyes wide, you can get a “cute, anime look.” …in theory.

    Fact checking is always appreciated. Thanks.

    IMO the Kenshin duels with Saito Hajime and Seta Sojiro were better. By the time he reached Shishio, things were getting into the edge of ridiculous Dragon Ball fight territory.
