Papercraft: school bag (Sora Kake Girl)

For this new category, I did a LVL noob papercraft: the school bag in the anime Sora Kake Girl. I had the idea to design it by seeing the Figma / Nendoroid Bag on Tsukiboard.

source blog figma.

Besides I watched lately the anime so I knew there was this bag 😛 I designed it for the 1/8 scaled Akiha Shishidou by GSC, but feel free to be inspired to do whatever you want.

Kara no Kyoukai ~the Garden of Sinners.

Avant d’éventuellement faire une review sur une figurine de KnK, je voulais en fait “réviser” pour appréhender les personnages. J’ai donc voulu voir ou revoir les films.
J’avais déjà vu les 3 premiers films à l’époque… et je les ai revus, puis j’ai continué avec les 4ème et 5ème films : un film par soir 🙂
J’ai trouvé l’ensemble excellent et je suis devenu un KnK fanboy =3 Voici donc mes impressions pour vous pousser à les visionner. Comme à mon habitude, je vais donner des détails triviaux sur l’intrigue afin de ne pas la révéler, et je vais plutôt insister sur mon ressenti.

Before maybe writing a review of a figure of KnK, I wanted to study the basis. So I watched again the first movies (1, 2 and 3) and I watched the 4th and the 5th: a movie an evening =)
I loved the movie series and I became a KnK fanboy 😛 I will give in this article my personal feelings about it. Maybe I will make you wanna watch them 😉 Don’t worry I am not spoiling.

Games on Tsuki Board ^.^

I didn’t imagine I would write again so soon, but that’s not for an usual kind of article:
I’d like to promote new games that appeared on Tsukiboard.

Take and give back
Lenneth has begun the game: the main rule is to virtually steal a figure of the collection of the person who wrote a message before the one you’re going to write… and to give back one from your collection. Someway it looks like a trade.

Indiana Jones Raiders LostDr. Henry Walton “Indiana” Jones, Jr uses to play this game.

As I am concerned I succeed to get Alice (Queen’s Gate) by Alpha x Omega and Hayate Yagami (MSLN StikerS) by Alter \o/ I am checking to rob a Saber Alter (Fate/hollow ataraxia) by Solid Theater Ltd Edition… impossible to get >.<
Let’s play right there !

Recognize them all / the figure is right.
The second game is a kind of “blind test” for figures. The purpose is to recognize samples from figures. We are setting up the game so if you have some comments or ideas about that, please let me know 🙂
For the moment, one of the main rule is to grab samples from official shoots only (pics marked as official shoot on Tsukiboard). How much do you know about the figure world? 😛
Here is the first game :

The second game will be start very soon, don’t miss it !

Stand by.

Hi (Kamen) Readers !
With a such titel maybe I could have been dealing with the “Nanoha STAND BY ready” figure. But that’s not the case.
I decided to take a break with this blog for several personal reasons. I wish you had fun on reading the articles that I already wrote (Chuck Norris, Aubade, etc…): as I’m concerned I had fun again by rereading them a bit when I was closing trackbacks, pingbacks and comments on my previous posts. That’s why I will let online the whole content of the blog.
To tell you the truth I don’t know how long will last this break or if I will write again anything on this blog… but let’s be optimistic.
Oh, don’t worry, I am not (yet) going to stop all my activities related to my passion for Japanese culture: you should still be able to talk to me on other websites 😉
Best regards.
Agent J.
