When children are playing on a residential wooden swing set they need to play safe just like at the playground. Kids should understand the safety rules and why each rule is important. This includes only one child sliding down the slide as well as only one person to each swing seat. Educate them so they [...]

The manga and anime series Yuru Yuri revolves around the daily life of the Amusement Club's members. Yoshikawa Chinatsu [吉川 ちなつ] is one of those members who is going to get the figurization treatment into a 1/8 scale sukumizu clad figure by Alphamax.
Head directly to Alphamax for more info about Chinatsu.
If you are interested in pre-ordering this figure then check out the following trusted online retailers.
And for those who are not familiar with Chinatsu or Yuru Yuri then check her out in action in the video below. If the video has been eaten then check out this search query on YouTube. I love the Yuri Yuri girls - especially their big round upper eyes!
So todays figure topic is "Are you buying less figures?"
Was prompted to bring this up after I spoke to several figure retailers who have observed a decline in figure sales over the years. Some of the reasons they think are the cause are the increasing cost of figures (some now hitting the 12,000 yen mark) and another reason simply being that there is now too much choice.
So how about you? Are you buying less figures and if so what would be the reason for you?
There is a poll embedded in this article.
Not only does Ikebukuro in Tokyo have anime shops like Animate (which is also packed with fujoshi goodies), they also have Gamers which is also filled with anime goodies with a bit more focus to ecchi stuff that includes eroge, magazines and dakimakura - if this sounds like your cuppa tea then you need to pay them a visit!
The Gamers Ikebukuro store is located below. Get off at Ikebukuro station East Exit.
And if you are in the Osaka area then you can check out their branch at Otaroad.

I had absolutely forgotten that Hot Toys would be releasing 1/6 versions of G.I.Joe - specifically from the "G.I.Joe Retaliation" "live"-action film (yes, THAT postponed one), and the first salvo goes to SNAKE EYES! And gosh does he look "gorgeous" here! The last time we saw a Snake Eys 1/6 was the mass market version from the first film (*shudder*) and the "Classic" version from Sideshow Toys

The time of year has come when the warm days here in the NorthEast are few and far between. Similar to those who can’t play outside in the extreme heat, our kids don’t go outside for recess in extreme cold. Those of us with active kids, we know that life seems to be just a [...]

Yesterday’s post was the rarest promotional CARS diecasts (giveaways not available to the general public). This list is the rarest-lowest number production CARS available for sale.
