Super Deformation Formation!
As most of you are aware, the Nendoroid series will be going digital onto a PSP platform sometime soon, titled Nendoroid Generations (ねんどろいどじぇねれーしょん). This is the result of a collaboration with Namco Bandai and Good Smile Company, announced as a project at GSC's 10th Anniversary party which had JAM Project rocking the house ^^.
Doesn't she look familiar?
A custom "Nendoroid Gotou Imouto", the younger sister of Kuroneko (or Gotou Ruri) has been given the custom treatment and the detailing is incredible.
She even comes with her plush toy! Such dedication and fandom from a 2ch user ^^
20 April 2011
UPDATE: New images added, along with 2 new sections created:
"Nendoroid 00 - 170 + No Numbers"and "Nendoroid Puchi and Nendoroid Plus"
UPDATE 2: Nendoroid Racing Miku 2011 ver. just arrived at Goodsmile Cafe today! (4/20)
She's been added to the Nendoroid collection at the "Latest Nendoroid Closeups" section. ^^
Guma-chan welcomes and beckons you to join her at the Good Smile Cafe in Chiba, with their latest cafe theme, Nendoroid Cafe, starting from April 5th (Tuesday).
For the duration of this theme, the cafe has been decorated with tons of their flagship figure series "Nendoroid", plastered everywhere from walls to shelves and even tables.
Come and drown yourself in this amazing Nendo-experience as you are surrounded by hundreds of Nendoroid faces while enjoying a "dining together with a Nendoroid" encounter, with a special menu.
This is heaven-sent for Nendo lovers and I can't blame them. This is absolute eye candy to any lucky customer that walks through those doors. Makes me wish I was there too ^^;
A definite must-go if you've visiting Japan anytime soon.
Of course, to those who would love to teleport themselves right now but can't, I hope these images can bring you that much closer to the cafe which is the purpose of this post. Also, it seems this "cafe" segment is becoming a regular thing, hence the birth of the "CAFE" tag ^^
Special thanks to Zero for unleashing his Reality Marble; Unlimited Copypasta Works for lining the images from our server. Big cheer for the poor guy! ( ´∀`)
Lord help me...
The day started out like any other day; wake up, power up the PC, check my mail, then take a quick bath before returning to my desktop to reply some emails.
Except, I never got the chance to reply to anyone.
When I emerged from the bath, a Tako Luka was on my workspace with the other monitors featuring its siblings.
And thus began my days with Tako Luka and their invasion (in progress).
Since they're here to stay (and its not like I can make them move out on their own or have a choice), I've decided to carry out an observation journal on my findings on such a rare species, concerning mostly of their behaviour and natural diet in our world.
May this serve as a guide to caring (or maintaining) for you own Tako Invasion when one does arrive at your doorstep.

Kyoani/ Tokyo Mx must be going all out for this show.
And I'm a little proud my national language was used in Nichijou. Keiichi Arawi (mangaka) or someone at KyoAni must have visited Malaysia or Indonesia or picked up that phrase somewhere (probably a staff ^^).
I predict the next word will be NASI LEMAK! (you might wanna google that ^^)
Bitter, cause all the good shows have ended but sweet since I'm on break and its Spring!
Finals has ended and yours truly is on a (short) spring break and I've been playing non-stop all the game titles that have built up and watching final episodes of series that has ended ever since. Been playing Shogun 2 and it's been a blast.
Truly, the path to ascension from the Daimyou (Clan Leader) to ultimately Shogun (Ruler of Japan) after toppling the previous Shogunate is indeed a hard and long path. The Date clan were impressive, but the shogunate deemed me too dangerous and sent the whole (or what's left of the clans after conquering 20+ provinces) nation against me. Tried out Chosokabe next and with their farm income bonus, funding my war plans was relatively smooth as I took the South and East Japan easily.
Also, if you've noticed, I've changed my banner and background image after playing around with some image editing tools to suit my current obsession, Hatsune Miku and Nendoroids, along with a few companies and figure series that I love. Funny part is I swore I would cut down on Nendoroids but alas, Evil Smile Company won't let me off the hook that easily. ( ´∀`)
Zero says theres too much cuteness here now and he'd like the previous banner back.
I say ( ゜∀゜)アハハ八八ノヽノヽノヽノ ＼ ／ ＼／ ＼
What do you guys think about the new banner and background image? ^^
But enough about conquest and figures. It's time to summarise the previous season's lineup:
This season's was smaller compared to Autumn 2010, but nonetheless, it was fun. Almost everything ended within the same season, with a couple riding on and joining Spring much to my delight. The number of interesting shows has plummeted but that shouldn't stop me from enjoying whatever the industry has to throw. Spring looks really promising so we'll have to see how that ends up later.
Time to sing out my youth!
Some personal opinions on what went down in Winter's lineup with, again, bold ORENJI on those particularity worth watching;
Now here's the fun bit: it's an anime.

Yes, you read that first part right.
Its seems that fleshlight manufacturer, TENGA has expressed interest in advertising in superhero anime,
Tiger & Bunny", which has already received numerous "sponsors" from companies such as Bandai, DMM.com, UStream, Softbank and others.

And looks who's greeting us; Guma-chan!
The previous Panty and Stocking theme has been taken down to make way for the new "Nendoroid theme".
Behind her are rooooooows of Nendoroid packages and Nendoroids displayed as part of the deco! Wow!
Will soon cover the new theme with pics, menus, deco and whatever the cafe may surprise us with ^^
But for now, you'll have to settle with these pre-opening teasers; （＾∀＾）

The original designs (left) are from the novel, followed by the adaptation designs (right).
The drawings give off a feeling of vintage and retro-ness that is rarely found in today's character designs. Maybe its just me, but I've come to appreciate how they retained that UC era feel ^^
Why isn't there a bigger reso for such a divine image...
Hikasa Youko, or as I and many others like to call her, "Hiyocchi" has voiced quite a handful of noteworthy characters up till now. Thou she may sound pretty common as any other seiyuu to many viewers, Hiyocchi's talent for singing is real, blowing away everyone's eardrums when she debuted in music comedy anime "K-ON!", propelling her to stardom as a noteworthy and talented seiyuu too.
As someone who grew up watching Doraemon from time to time, this had me spilling my drink.
Even when time travelling, do remember to look out for paradox crossroads and the occasional warp tunnel bumps ♥
Now, if only we can jump forward in time to see the supposedly leaked 12th episode scenario title.

To make up for the April Fool's joke, the guys at Wagnaria are happy to announce the sequel of restaurant-cross-dressing anime "Working!!" is underway, with a BD BOX for the "Working!! Season 1" releasing in August.
01 April 2011
A compilation of sites found to be "announcing" some questionable information.
Companies such as TYPE-MOON, Good Smile Company, Nitroplus and even Akihabara join the foolwagon.
On the 1st of April, Wagnaria.com has ended the countdown, revealing a surprising announcement; an anime project.
A trailer has been prepared, introducing brand new characters into the "Working!" series with the new series as a WEB animation project.
The web versions will be sold on VHS (that's right, V-H-S tapes) starting with Vol.1 going on sale today.
The trailer, available at the previous link or here, shows a brief introduction of 2 characters. Make sure to watch it till the very end, where they reveal a surprising conclusion which is...
With today's release of the new PS2/PSP Amagami game "eb!+colle Amagami", fans waste no time in splurging everything for their waifu Ayatsuji limited edition copies.
