So in the span of two months I go from having nothing JoJo related aside from Viz’s release of Stardust Crusaders to having all these goodies.
w-who needs self-control
So I had never paid much mind to doujinshi. Then a classmate lent me a few of his and the floodgates opened. I primarily collect gag books, though a few smut ones managed to worm their way into the collection.
"MARVEL BISHOUJO" BLACK CAT
1/7 scale. Made by Kotobukiya. Released in 2011.
Not much into Marvel or DC much, but there have been several characters in Kotobukiya’s “Bishoujo” line that have caught my eye. Black Cat’s action pose and Spider-Man themed base made her a stand-out for me.
They’re heeeeeeeeeeeere! My first Super Action Statues. After putting it off for a few years (seriously, I’ve owned Viz’s Stardust Crusaders books for ages) I finally got around to reading JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. And now I got the JoJo fever REAL BAD.
To help deal with the symptoms I got these two guys. Part IV’s “Rohan Kishibe” and Part VIII’s “Josuke Higashikata”. I’ve been hearing rumors that Medicos’s quality has gone down lately, and it seems to be the case. Gappy, the more recent release, isn’t bad at all, but is a step down from Rohan.
1/8 scale. Made by Phat Company. Released in 2012.
While I had been aware of the Fate series for years, I held off on getting into it for as long as I could. Then Fate/Extra came around with one of its available servants being a pink-haired kitsune. As a fan of both pink hair and fox girls, I could not resist. Now I find myself buried in the Nasuverse mythos…can’t wait for the Fate/Stay Night anime by ufotable!
GOOD SMILE RACING MIKU 2010 VERSION
1/8 scale. Made by Good Smile Company. Released in 2010.
I’m honestly not a huge fan of Miku (Luka all the way, baby!), nor am I fond of Good Smile’s endless whoring of the green-haired idol, but I’ll admit that she gets some really great figures. I love this design to death but 2010 Miku seems a bit unpopular compared to the other racing Miku figs.
My only complaint would be that forward lean. What, is she trying to do Smooth Criminal or something?
!!! NSFW !!!
Made by Yamato/Cerberus Project. 1/6 scale. Released in January 2012. Based on an illustration in Nishieda’s “Dendrobium” artbook.
I had always considered Yamato a bottom-of-the-barrel manufacturer as the few figures I owned from them were all mediocre at best. And then came Violet with her near-perfect quality. Yamato (now “Arcadia”) really outdid themselves!
1/8 Scale. Made by Alter. Released in 2012.
I’ve got a serious love-hate relationship with Panty & Stocking as a show, but I really liked the character designs. Especially Stocking’s. How could I say no when Alter offered up this gorgeous figure of her?
Made by Alter. 1/8 scale. Released in 2013.
Ah, Kongiku. It doesn’t matter how graceful and beautiful you look in your shimmering golden-orange kimono. Everyone will always focus solely on your gigantic tits. I mean, yowzers! How do those things not get in the way all the time?
Made by Max Factory. 1/7 scale. Released in 2011.
I’m more of a foxgirl kind of person, but Xiao Mei was too cute to pass up.
