Shigure Asa Long Hair Ver. by Kotobukiya

Let’s go back a few months, more than a few months, all the way back to August of 2009 when Shigure Asa arrived on my door step. Like last weeks review of Azaka, Asa’s presence in the wild seems lacking to almost non-existent, though having been out there longer than Azaka she has received some attention.

Surely it must be Lance, right? riiight? *sigh* Continue reading Sill Plain by Kotobukiya

Tohsaka Rin & Berseker by Good Smile Company

Plus I purchased a┬áNikon SB-600 so I wanted to try and figure out how to use it before shooting some pictures of the figure. I think I’ve gotten better results with this flash than before, they’re more consistent anyway. That said, there is still inconsistency with light levels and such.
