Women always suck up the life energy of the man they marry. It's awful, I've seen it happening many times with people I know too. They marry and suddenly they lose any kind of identity and creativity they once had.
Ton of GSC and friends' stuff
Motherfucking Alter takes all my money
So when the fuck japan is gonna upload the God Hand prototype pictures?
Full story of how TH fandom may disintegrate.
Don't pick sides, just know this is a big deal right now. I myself still likes both and I'm not really planning to pick sides either.

Being Asian has it's perks. I got these from non-Japanese sources but I can read enough, and there are enough reference points I researched to say the event is legitimate.
I just do hope that Touhou doesn't disintegrate.
Kudos if you know who I am, if you don't, oh well
Gift making a swimsuit Vita? Seems kind of random.
Just how many idol shows are there in japan?
>Wake up girls.
the fuck? When is the idol thing going to die?
You're acute girl, just like all of us.
Man, are building-musume really going to become a thing? Most of Japan's modern architecture fucking sucks; I don't want to see their countless squatty crap boxes glorified in grill form with all sorts of boring lame facts about their history and who the tenants are/were.
Call me when they do New York or Chicago buildings so they can at least have pretty art deco grills and have cool stories like the time a B-25 flew into the Empire State Building.
I'm not good enough to be Miku though.
Is he even still around?
Yeah, but I am also bit sick of staleness in goods. I stopped buying doujin music because of that, also
This was mostly in Twitter. Most incident backbrews in 2CH, but really nowadays blows up in Twitter.
All these shows and guests.
Just how big is Good Smile Company?
It's not like ZUN will keep doing games untill he dies, he'll eventually quit.
There'll be always at least one dedicated touhoufag in comickets, that's for sure.
Man, not even the music circles are as big as before anymore.
Alright this is the kind of Tenryu I've been waiting for. QuesQ please don't mess it up.
I'm not asian.
I do like QT asian grills though
I will be waiting warmly for this GSC Kurumi.
2 prototypes, 4 new figs announced and colored elevator girl.
>Man, not even the music circles are as big as before anymore.
Well, I can't really blame them. I honestly can't remember any past Ten Desires song at all.
The games have lost it's charm, simple as that.
Honestly, what I have never been able to get is Kancolle. It's like one day I went to sleep and Kancolle did not exist, I wake up, and Kancolle is superpopular overnight. How did the Kancolle boom even happen?
OS and Plum
I hope these are alternate parts, because I liked Yato holding the bottle with the sword behind him.
You are literally seeing your dollars dance away in a shitty stream.
T-thanks GSC, have some more money.
Can't keep my eyes open any longer. Good night, buyfags.
>another year with no merch of my waifu besides her source material
this better be a thing
Yes, I do. The maid collection has grown considerably here.
Is your email still the same?
I'm still around. I mostly lurk, though. Or play KanColle and roll with Bismarck
Have the IS 1/4s on PO, and looking forward to my favorite, Houki. Hopefully they make one of Chifuyu Maid. I'd Day One Buy that.
Does it matter when Big Sight is confirmed for Kill before the Japanese Olympics?
Bigwigs already plan to tear it down and replace it with some venue meant for Olympic athletes and the audience.
Comiket will actually need a new location soon.
That's the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building.
Looks like all these are going into MF's new Figfix line
But she's the best
believe whatever you want. I'm only telling you what happened. How you interpret is entirely uptoyou.
yeah I seen you there once or twice. I'm still very very newfag there so people there help a lot and are nice enough to teach me shit that I don't know.
cant a guy dream of his country statue being turned into a cute girl?
Yeah, after UFO everything just feels unnecesary. It was a great game. Although SA is the best of the modern games no questions.
Sukuna was a horrible, horrible final boss compared to Utsuho or Kanako.
God damn Utsuho's theme and everything is so fucking cool, I miss that shit.
Hell yeah, good to hear.
I still have this golden egg.
Also, I decided to cave in and get the maids card game. Would you recommend it?
Yes, my email is still the same. Let's do SecretSanta again this year, if you'd like.
In a flying metal bird between Houston and Detroit.
There was Yui. She's pretty close.
Can't find a single decent Rozen Maiden figure to buy, hold me.
The BD sales weren't exceptional, but it wasn't a failure either. They were about average. All the merchandise sold out, which doesn't necessarily mean a whole lot, but I don't think it means it was a failure per se,
Another fig based on Cat Lap Milk's artist.
For those who hasn't visited Japan, I highly recommend that if you want to, do it ASAP. For 3 key reasons:
1. Japanese domestic troubles (read: Abe is retard)
2. Fukishima may blow up any minute
3. Mt. Fuji may blow up any minute
Part of me wants to buy this just to try give as gifts
Japan didn't get chosen for the 2020 Olympics, they asked for it, a secret deal in order to use it as an excuse to purge all otaku culture which is clearly the cause of their low birth rates.
What's Abe going to do? Start a civil war?
Fukushima's not going to fucking blow.
Fuji... yeah, that could happen I guess.
The main problem is the Olympics. I'm fucking terrified about what they'll do to "clean up" things like doujin and eroge.
Alter sure loves to stuff its big greedy cock in my tight little wallet
Abe will send in army to clean that up. He has full right of exercise to, now that they're setting up that army
I'd have to say dead summer or dead in the winter if it's like any other Asian places, but anyone is welcome to correct me. I haven't been to Japan in ages.
Or... They could be using this to bring in rich foreigners to forcefully inseminate their cutiepie females with STRONK foreigner genes.
Their birth rate will grow after 2020, mark my words.
It's amazing to see what fans still love.
If that's true, learn to paint just for him.
Odeya. I'm not loving the face either, but it is Cyborg 009.
Now all I need is a /glassesadust figure and I'll be able to die
>Dat Armored Mordred
>Dat Class Rep
>Dem Meat Buns
Goodie. Though the pose looks a bit boring compared to a GK I saw. Still nice.
OH GOD WHAT IS WRONG WITH HER FACE?
I want to try and go either for Winter Comiket, or a Cherry Blossom Viewing.
What is that? D-Arts?
I'm actually planning on going back in the next year or two since I know it will be gutted for the olympics.
I went in September and it was great. I'm not a fan of going during TGS/WonFes/Comiket or anything like that. I expect the general attitude for tourists is more negative and everything is more crowded around those times.
Difference being that Japan is not a third world shithole.
Also, Brazil and Russia aren't pussies who care about how others look or think of them. They don't have MUH HONOR ingrained into their fucking brains since they are born either.
I mean really, Japan is already under international scrutiny for Otaku Culture, Loli in particular.
Their response has basically been, "Would you be quiet already, we're doing the best we can, just leave it alone."
Basically they've made a few concessions, but otherwise just deflect further probes because they know it's a big fucking part of their economy.
Which Anon were you? I'd like to answer.
People are just being dumb and scared. We all know it isn't going to happen because everybody already knows about it and if they fucked with it a major portion of Japan's economy will get fucked and that's the last thing they need right now. Everybody knows the most that would come of anybody seeing anything "bad" would just be on someones Twitter going "OH JAPAN IS SO NUTTY! XD!"
I can't actually pay for mine yet do to funds not being available yet. But hopeful in the next 2 days.
The postal system works in mysterious ways.
Holy hell, that image is outdated.
I'm happy to help if I'm around, though my specialty is pic related...
Plus, none of this shit is hidden in Japan like Brazil's shit is. All a tourist has to do is get off the train in Akihabara and look at any one of the billboards with scantily clad cartoon children on it. Not a big deal now, but would become a lot more public with the world watching.
Then why in the fuck would they ask for the olympics to be hosted in their country?
They want that foreign money.
They will purge the otaku and pedoshit out and fill it with the japanese old culture, honor, and other respectful shit we don't care about.
Engineering Manager, I work for a company specialized in acoustic and thermal insulation for vehicles, mainly making interior trims. One of the new plants in MI is having serious trouble and I'll be here for a couple of weeks helping hem.
And Ford is our biggest client, not GM, Chrysler in second place, then Nissan.
Fuck yeah, this girl was shown, I can't wait to see her painted.
The world already knows about little naked anime girls. Brazil's shit is not hidden at all. It is literally one part of the country is fine and the rest of it, which is most of it, is a total shithole that you don't go to unless you want to die.
Their country is made up of 5 million people.
300k attend comiket every 6 months.
Otaku culture is a deep part of their economy.
Let's just wait 10 more years so that the old people will die off and the otaku lovers take power.
Then we will finally reach the golden age of anime.
>Then why in the fuck would they ask for the olympics to be hosted in their country?
Their economy is still shitty as fuck.
Olympics will help them. Not like this is anything new as they hosted the world cup in 2002.
I don't know what the fuck these are supposed to be, but since they're Shunya Yamashita designs I'm going to have to get them.
More like take it out of the dining room and put it in the closet while the guests are over.
Of course they aren't going to flaunt otaku shit in their opening ceremony or anything, that would be retarded.
That doesn't mean they're going to kill it forever though, Jesus.
And why wont anyone take a fucking picture of her.
MIWelcome to my State, please enjoy your stay.
I love them. They were some of my first purchases. I have an extra unopened set of all of them.
I also have Kazuno, but she doesn't fit on the stand, It's too full.
>Unless there's some figma/nendos that are in the no photo booth that haven't gotten online yet.
I can't believe someone still hasn't taken a clear shot of the God Hand.
Damn, you make double what I make. Keep up the good work, James.
I been listening to the online radio AnimeNexus to practice my spanish and I love hearing what their view on anime is nowadays. Dubbers are huge there.
The first one isn't even out yet (release date is still up in the air), and it's rather bland, and yet I still want it.
This is the only thing keeping me up. For fucks sake, you'd think at least a single jap cares enough to take a picture
This. Do we even know where it's going to be held in particular? There is Tokyo itself which is actually not that big, it's the greater metro area that is actually several other cities that kind of grew into each other that brings up the statistic of being a city of 30 million.
I bet what'll happen is that Tokyo gov will snoop around the seediest parts of Akiba and force shop owners to cover up / put away anything too lewd for the duration of the Olympics. Tourists coming in for the Olympics are going to be mostly interested in eating the food, touring museums, visiting temples and -maybe- trying to see some of the "wacky" part of Japan that includes Akiba/Shinjuku, for joe shmoe tourist bringing his family along, going to a maid cafe or a cat cafe or a karaoke bar just once is good enough to amuse them in that aspect, and they won't actually hang around these areas too long in favor of the other tourist traps. Not to mention it was Ishihara who was the ultra-conservative anti-otaku governor and he's been out for a while, and his successor will almost surely be gone by 2020 because he's already in a political scandal himself, so we have no idea what the mentality of whoever the governor in 2020 is going to be like, not to mention what the olympic committee thinks of this and how easily their opinions can be bought by Sunrise/Bandai etc. Chances are high they don't -really- give a shit about the otaku stuff and will be fine taking a big-ass kickback to help protect something that is going to be probably far down on their priorities compared to things like stadium safety/security and logistics support for the tourist flock.
Also the Olympics start in July, and will be over by the time summer Comiket rolls around. They won't even need to move it unless they are that afraid of being scrutinized by tourists who stayed behind an extra two weeks somehow, which will be just about fucking no one since the games themselves are already 16 days or so.
I really hope they do. Praying for the ZnT ones to look good as well.
Maybe if their K boys sells they'll make Neko.
Here you go. Some Anon was concerned about what looked pink earlier.
>Neodroids, Hakutaku figures, that figure...
I like that they went with a different illustration for Venera-sama. Not sure how the smile will look painted, but it's accurate to the source. Dat belly.
Sweet. I didn't see that kit.
And I'm happy to see all this for HnR.
I think for a few years now various manufacturers have been imagining that there is room in the market for something in between a figma and a nendoroid, and they manifest in things like this because there is little way to outdo GSC without costing a lot more and having none of the established cache to give people a reason to trust those higher prices.
Oh man, it's glorious. Then again we already knew that, but still.
There's some MaoHaoHao-chan (Hakutaku's cat) charms too.
>no Kagari in her normal Witch mode
>no Kagari in medusa mode
>no Kagari in Princess mode
>no Kagari with her dragon
well not like I expected Japan to model something challenging
I know they've show the yukata version of the dokes girls by freeing which nobody wants, but did they show anymore of the maiko version I'm sure I remember seeing a pic of the Mami one, was there a prototype shown? Also in general did Kyouko get anything good?
>telling your better sculptors to spend time on anything but boatshit
I was expecting them to use the pose from the illustration they originally showed, so it was a pleasant surprise they didn't. That other pose wasn't very interesting, but I really like the look of this one.
Where my Dorobros?
Yes. Those I saw. Thanks.
