Comment on Insane Black Rock Shooter TV Version Figure by Imyou:

Avatar of Imyou

Yeah. Late 90s, there were a few prepainted figures, but often cheap in price and appearance. They were sort of like upscale action figures. I figured with the flying hair, they might have had to use something stiffer than PVC and maybe make it plug into her head so it’d keep the right shape in shipping.

Either way, it’s awesome that you don’t have to be a master artist to have a figure like this now.

    Nice. I don’t follow figures closely, but it’s crazy that you’d get one of this quality at that price point now. great to see.

    Forgive my ignorance – I’m from the past… Some of those parts look pretty breakable – how would you receive a figure like that? Fully assembled? Mostly assembled with a few slot-in pieces? In the 90s, a figure like that would be made of brittle resin, cost 2-3x as much, and come in a bunch of unpainted pieces you’d have to sand seams off of, glue together, prime, and paint yourself…

    Fair point. I got into J-pop in the 90s so I missed Onyanko Club. My main point is that these groups are juggernauts and it’s probably really uneconomical to try to compete with them (unless you already own all the others.)

  • Nogizaka46 Madoka BD CM “A Disgrace”:
    The fan outrage(?) is probably because it bears no resemblance to PMMM in the first place. It’s just a bunch of girls in gothic lolita fashion with a couple props – Kyuubey and a soul gem. It’s like if a clean-shaven guy in blue jeans, a white t-shirt and a ball cap showed up and went “hey, itsa mee – Mario!” Actually, it’s kind of what we see in most video game movies – no respect for the source material, because the director thinks they can do “better” with their own ideas… which no longer …

  • Nogizaka46 Madoka BD CM “A Disgrace”:
    Not only is it a ridiculous concept that takes a lot of resources, but the founders may have Yakuza ties, so it seems like an unwise choice – not that they’d come and kill you, but you may not even get a fair chance at taking on the AKB monster. It’s possible Morning Musume/Hello! Project is a kind of competition – but not really rivals, or on the same scale. Probably what inspired AKB48 though, or at least acts like it.

  • Top 10 Most Wanted Anime Movies:
    I agree. Great series, but it seems well suited to short stories.

  • Anime: Smoking “Uncool”:
    Even back in FLCL, Mamimi was always smoking a cigarette, but when she got close to Naota, he said “you stink like tobacco!” …though it’d also be as easy or easier to find characters like Spike Spiegel or Daisuke Jigen or Lupin III who smoked without effect.
