It's finally here!
And it only took more than a fucking year to get here.
I thought the sex industry was more accepted in Japan. It seems to be prevalent throughout their everyday life.
I haven't been to Japan since a kid though and the last time I was in Asia it was Korea (who are far more conservative), so I don't know..
I just ordered this. All I need is a good Char, when are we getting a good Char? That's all I need.
So, how long until her price drop due to the fact that literally everyone is trying to sell her at insane prices?
I've been thinking about that myself. I think the hardest part would be making good pegs. I'm thinking slightly too large dowel rods shaved down to the right size and then mounted into something.
They says everywhere she is cast-offable, but there's no picture of that yet anywhere.
Seems a bit strange to me
Actually hot tall are these 1/72 Macross Delta figures?
>what i meant was that jointed ones are really ugly compared to the other ones
That's subjective, more if you try to defend scales like the ones that Griffon made
One of the best part of articulated figures is all the poses you can recreate with them
dam son that looks like a bootleg, they should have licensed the original one or get the artist to draw one.
Pretty sure they got the original artist to draw that.
Kyou is the only one that looks off in my opinion, she got a chubby looking face there.
Still haven't opened my physical copy since I already payed the steam release.
Probably never, figures that aren't female basically don't exist any more
Heard that less popular or old series is getting a new figure? Haha fuck you we won't have the main character or villain, just one of the girls
I'm not the man you're looking for, the answer you seek lies elsewhere.
Being hotglued by countless faceless postmen as we speak.
But seriously, the tracking is probably just slow to update and/or your post might not be moving very fast.
Oh god I said the VA as a joke, I can't believe that was actually it.
The fucking voice actress has the human right to a personal life. How then fuck does that affect your character.
>tealtext means I'm mad
>Implying that's me
You're not fighting a war, don't be so defensive.
>can't take a joke
God damn normalfags, please stick to your super serious mfc discussion circles.
She does want to keep it a secret. That's why she's vehemently denying it, even though there's pretty hard proof, and the vid is available.
I agree that idolfags who sperg out over their favourite idols/VA's not being virgins is fucking retarded and delusional, but porn I somewhat understand.
Idols are by definition supposed to be idolized, image means everything.
If you then find out that she was paid to have sweaty sex with some out of shape "porn star", that pretty much ruins the image.
She also has a singing career besides being a VA.
She sings for the show, and has done live performances of songs from the show I think.
Maybe a few originals too, I'm not really into LL or idols in general, so I don't really know all too well.
>is not an idol
I'm not too familiar with aidoru canon but I would consider seiyuus idols due to the fact she voices an idol and therefore becomes an idol herself due to merchandise.
Yukiho's first VA had a similar incident but, because it was in the early days of [email protected], no one really cared. Some of [email protected]' VAs though, like Asami Imai, do eroge / hentai.
>voice actress has the human right
Of course she does. There only is the small caveat that her employment opportunities are conditional on not exercising those rights.
These are the same retards that think free speech means you're literally allowed to say whatever you want and no one is allowed to get mad at you or take action against you.
Live on the money of fat sweat virgin otaku, die by the creed of fat sweaty virgin otaku.
Should have thought about that shit when you were taking their money.
>Live on the money of fat sweat virgin otaku, die by the creed of fat sweaty virgin otaku.
This is the most logical thing. People get into this industry without knowing shit about it then get pissed off when they realize how fucked it is.
Normalfags and a lot of western people don't understand what it means to be in this industry and the consequences that follow.
It's the same with buyfagging.
Then again. I'm just talking out of my ass.
I know, that's one of my favorite outfits, I also want to get the Nendo but that's much easier to come by. If there was a Figma I'd also buy it. When I buy my Dollfie it'll be the first outfit I get.
Will look into it, thanks.
True, but one would hope that the higher prices would mean they don't sell as much.
>Polynian Robutt girl
Man, that is a
god-tierdisplay of taste
I regularly get and give 60-100 dollar presents among my closer friends....what kind of penny pinching ghetto do you live in?
>I regularly get and give 60-100 dollar presents among my closer friends
FUCK YOU YOU FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT. PEOPLE LIKE YOU ALWAYS FORCE ME TO SPEND A CRAPLOAD OF TIME JUST WONDERING HOW I CAN SPEND 100$ ON PRESENTS TO MAKE UP FOR THE SHIT YOU BOUGHT ME. I HATE YOU. TRUE CLOSE FRIENDS DON'T BUY EACH OTHER ANYTHING.
true close friends would buy something without expecting something in return.
>you will never surprise your best friend with a gift
>I did it because we're friends!
This. I love buyfagging a lot even when it's not for me so I don't really care if I get nothing in return.
Getting my buddy this figure actually made me jealous because the base was really nice. I kind of wanted it for myself.
Good thing I sold all my Love Live stuff.
This is funny as shit. There is no way they'll keep promoting this. It's on to the new generation asap.
See this is why [email protected] is superior. With [email protected] the seiyuu can even have done hentai voice acting and no one gives a shit, and she can even be one of the most popular characters. With Love Live, that shit is marketed to little kids so now you're fucked.
At least they did their final concert.
>See this is why [email protected] is superior
>[email protected] is superior because its seiyuus can be whores and no one cares
Of course, [email protected] just lives off of horny otaku, all its girls are whores anyway.
Literally just fapb8 the franchise, which is why it has like 5 mobages to sell its softporn images through
In the manga they're just described as being muscles so probably red and black for the hardened parts. The anime made every kagune a special color to distinguish between characters but it just looked tacky.
Saber gets one or two figures a Wonfest. Popular idol series monopolize whole lines and get multiple figures per girl. Fads come along like boats or swords that do the same thing but those eventually die out.
>idolfaggotry is the cancer killing figures.
How? Because they sell?
>Wahh I want them to make my super obscure character that only 10 other people want
Figure companies are in a business to sell, and Idol figures sell.
If anything, Idolfaggotry is whats keeping the figure business afloat by selling a lot so they can take a chance to make a not so popular character here and there.
She did work for [email protected] after the scandal and she even said that [email protected] allowed her continue meaning that people didn't really care.
The death threats was more just crazy 2ch fuckers. They did it to everyone. There was too much anonymity and people got away with sending death threats to everyone and everything. Eventually that broke down and people started getting arrested and completely fucked for it. If that scandal happened now, I doubt many would care, it's just hair nudes. Yuzuru did hair nudes and no one gives a fuck about that. It was just the 2ch faggots trying to purify seiyuu, like they try to purify everything else.
I don't think parents are going to let their children idolize a porn star though. Once this hits parents ears it's over for this generation.
>Friends are nirmalfags
>I still managed to convince them to go to the MikuExpo with me here in Mexico
>Gonna upload photos with them to stain their social life
Friends are great.
No, love live doesn't.
The [email protected] franchise is 80% lewd art in mobage games, that's where they make their money, exploiting horny shut ins with lewd cards to throw money trying to get in their RNG ingame lotteries. The other 15% is all the merch they print this art on and ridiculous amounts of dlc in their console games, and of course 5% is live concerts and CDS.
LL has one mobage as opposed to [email protected] 5 and the lewdest you get there is swimsuits, never in lewd positions like pic related.
Not that I don't like [email protected], I do, but their fanbase and their business tactic is what it is, and that's all about whoring out their girls to make young men spend money because they're thinking with their dick, and thats what I like it for, for pleasing my dick, although I'd say its music is way better than LLs.
Of course Love Live exploits their fan base too, but instead of just whoring out their girls in countless lewd cards/art, they do it in a more tame way with cuteness and yuri pandering with maybe throwing horny fans a bone every once in a while with some swimsuits.
Yeah, if that's really the original artist he got moeblobber with time
Good lord. If I didn't make much progress after 5 years of drawing I would just quit. This should all be crammed into 2 years.
>Let me put as many sparklies as possible in this drawing to hide the fact that I no sense of proportion after 15 years of drawing.
Anyone bought Dimension of DRAGONBALL figures? Worth buying?
>tfw have skills of 2009 on paper but of 2000 on computer
I see where he is coming from though. Most people who develop this style and nothing else can't really draw for shit. Assuming he draws nothing else. That said, still kinda garbage for that style.
What the hell are you talking about? Sayori's pretty decent.
No no no, stop that. Nekopara came out on Steam. Everything about it is entry level garbage. The game is casual-tier babby's first eroge. I definitely didn't post about how much I liked Wanko to Kurasou 7 years ago even though they're basically the same thing, especially since they're not because it didn't come out on Steam.
The things I would do to those two.
Love is lost
I think it was already posted in some of the many love live threads but okay.
You are joking right?
>lack of dynamic shading/lighting
>unoriginal and uninspired style
Most artist that develop this style struggle with basics. Ask them to draw architecture or real anatomy and they suck. Without developing the founding principles of composition, anatomy, proportion and perspective these artists become limited. See how the bottom row didn't change that much? >>139670152 This artist has all but stopped developing.
I'm a huge LL fag and I find this autism quite humorous.
You know, this would be perfect for that one dream image google thingy.
I wonder if one of you /g/entlemen still does these
Thanks, I finally decided my mind. I was searching for good future trunks, this is gonna be great.
She doesn't come with anything, but she's the lowest bullshit price Nendoroids come now of the ones that come in a full box.
I fucked up and didn't order from GSC for the faceplate, but I probably would have gotten fucked and gotten nothing anyway. Whoever got the Akio Watanabe one lucked out. Maybe it'll be on yahoo auctions for some insane price
>tfw all these are going to get posted online at a discount since this fag opened them all for this
It's funny you mention this because Picaso mastered all the skills posted before he branched out which only reinforces the point. When you become au fait with your skills then you can go about breaking the rules. This is usually true of any profession such as design, art, architecture and fashion.
I will also address
>complaining about bad proportions in Chinese cartoons
This work is a mediocre and the first post was critiquing it in the considering the context of this style.
Here, have a sand panda:
It's standard moege/nukige fare.
>when you become au fait with your skills
Most anime artists that actually go on to make professional works are fairly well versed in the foundations.
>the first post was critiquing it in the considering the context of this style
It really isn't, you're just attacking the style itself.
>wasting time learning shit deprecated by photography
There were girls cutting themselves over that one direction boy weren't there?
Also pretty sure I've never seen people hording their poop or keeping their pee in glass bottles on 2ch.
The difference is that globally people see anime as kind of normal and slightly childish. But in Japan some types of anime are on par with pepe memes. Idol anime is basically selling rare pepes. You guys are just shit artists so no one wants to buy Pepes, but imagine if you were good artists and knew how to write music.
>tfw spanish customs are going to hold my Tama for 1-3 months and jew me 100eur
I swear I'm moving to burgerland and stuffing my home with guns and tax-free pvc butts
>Most anime artists that actually go on to make professional works are fairly well versed in the foundations.
Never disagreed with this and was in fact the point I was making.
>It really isn't, you're just attacking the style itself.
No I'm not. Now you are just mind reading. I like the style and that's why I'm a regular here.
This coming Friday
Just the right amount of chubby, not like that fat fuck Pochaco.
>just found out about Animator Expo having merch
>see these pretty cool shirts
>JPN only shipping
fucking come on
>Half of your criticism (i.e. the shading and proportions) .
No, they are just errors, I am not talking about stylistic choices such as eyes & hair etc. There are also errors with lighting, nothing to do with the 'stylization'. Look at where the sun is positioned then compare the shading between the two figures. (I mean, this is only 1 problem) and if you suggest water refraction then again the lighting would again be behaving differently on the other objects in the picture. It's both objectively and subjectively shit. The anatomy/stiffness of the girl in the background is especially bad.
>not wanting to fuck a gundam
>not being an idiot with money and letting the industry destroy you
>that many duplicates out of the box
>he considers his korean toy collection an "investment"
>there are also errors with lighting, nothing to do with the 'stylization'
But it does. Anime in general tends not to have realistic lighting, as backgrounds and foregrounds are often drawn separately and composited together at a later date, which usually results in two contradictory light sources.
Anyone know where I can preorder this?
PlayAsia is out of stock, AmiAmi either doesn't have it or I can't find it.
>backgrounds and foregrounds are often drawn separately and composited together at a later date, which usually results in two contradictory light sources.
Are you saying that if I draw the foreground during daytime, and I draw the background at night, it will affect the lighting in the final work?
It's like saying all art in animation is 'good'. There is a difference between good and bad art direction. There are both in the industry right now and cutting corners is usually the reason for poor animation/art. However, if you obey the laws of lighting and composition (only breaking them to in concise and meaningful ways) you generally arrive with a far more pleasing aesthetic. What I am trying to say to you is there is a very real indicators by which we can measure the overall merit of a work that lie outside of just subjective opinion.
2 new celias this time suntanned. When will they stop milking this shit? Yes im mad that my sluts never gets the attention they deserve.
But in terms of the prevalent style at the moment, those aspects are considered superfluous and may in fact break the overall aesthetic flow of the image if applied realistically.
In the case of >>139673359 realistic lighting would significantly deemphasize Vanilla's presence and the image as a whole would lose it's colorful luster.
>bought an HJNN Nico and Rin on Buyee
>consolidated and used EMS
>shipping turns out to be twice what I payed for both originally
I sure hope that the Love still Lives after all this is over.
>But in terms of the prevalent style at the moment.
Now you are just pulling shit out of your arse. Just because it's prevalent, doesn't mean it's good.
> realistic lighting would significantly deemphasize Vanilla's presence and the image.
I said dynamic lighting and no, dynamic lighting can greatly enhance a characters presence. At this point there is no point responding to you. You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.
Is it just me or did they fuck up her face? I wanted to order her but now I don't know
If the lighting choices are stylized it's not realistic anymore. Semi-realistic is not realistic by the definition of that word alone.
Also, what exactly are you referring to as mistakes?
Thats exactly what i said from the start.
Azusa is good but she was like a fluke, Mugi looks like shit, Ritsu looks nearly nothing like her with too much volume to her hair, and Mio, my favorite, looks like a prize figure with an awful paintjob, particularly the gold parts and a lackluster belly.
Shit line of figures, I love K-ON to death but I'm not paying out the ass for this mediocrity.
What's an annoying ass scale figure you guys own?
I mean, tell me about how much of a pain in the ass it was to put together. I've been ordering a lot of scales lately that come with so many stupid fucking little objects and accessories that go with the character that putting them all on can be a hassle at times.
FUCK THIS SHIT
My wallet would be okay with this. I'm in the middle of putting together a budget and scaring myself a little as it is. I'd be in less trouble had I planned like this earlier.
So why not just shit on a page and call it a day? Like I said, you can break the laws as long as you know what it is you're doing. This is stylised lighting that isn't obeying the laws but the artist understands lighting concepts. How fucking hard is this to understand?
Man I was hoping this would be better, I don't know if its the poor lighting, but its a bit disappointing.
I just finished marathoning love live. Didn't even go online today, just watched anime the whole day. Man this show was so good. I want to buy some figures now. Probably going to buy some of my waifu Honoka.
Which figure should I buy?
>you will never ever be so baller to carry around a waifu pillow around.
My March order is finally here. I'm glad I got the big postcard, I was really worried I'd missed it.
Want to see something funny?
With that ugly purple and garish red, I'm fairly sure no one wants it anyway.
What the fuck were they even thinking. There's no blending in, it just goes over from two clashing colors.
I have Re2200-chan already, always on the lookout for the other two.
I'm amused by how much taller Bf-109-chan is compared to Re2200-chan. I wasn't expecting it.
I think for the most part we understand that people don't tend to come from nowhere and become big stars. We know they probably had to do some shitty stuff in order to get to where they are. A voice actress doing porn as one of her first gigs in order to get by and work towards her career goal is really not all that surprising.
But >>139676013 is at least right in that there are those in the west who do get to that level of autism. When One Direction were on a tour, some idiot thought the check in desk lady was flirting with one of the boys. They doxxed her and the legions of fans went apeshit on her social media.
Pretty sure there's been occasions where they've ripped up stuff or set things on fire when they've felt like they've been betrayed by their idols too.
>Bikini Madoka follows a Beach Queen
>all that Disney
Every time I see your room I spot something else that confuses me. I've never met anyone with such a bizarre configuration of tastes.
I don't mean that in a bad way. You seem fun
Vania that just came out. Basically have to take the whole fig apart (except at the usual places, though it still seems like it should) to get her wings on. I have nendos that were easier to deal with.
Oh boy what do we have here ! Shall we open it together buyfriends ?
Isn't she the perfect amount of CUTE and LEWD !!
Native Elevator Girl. Pretty lewd.
That's uh, actually just the first shelf. I have just about every animated Disney movie ever made.
I agree that the older ones were better though. Walt Disney was a true visionary and I hate what they've done to his company and image.
post old grails >=4 years since release
she wasn't released exactly 4 years ago but she's close (2012-10)
This doesn't look so well.
And also, why is this series only getting bikini outfits and that's basically it? There's like one outfit for Celia that isn't.
So, I'm trying to buy the Hime dakimakura from Dengekiya, but it doesn't seem to accept my card or something. Any tips?
You'll probably need a proxy service.
>No Frolaytia daki
That would be surprising since the boatsluts are less varied and interesting than that touhou sluts who all look very different. I'm actually surprised boatsluts took off so hard, they're pretty shit. They slap a couple of antennas and runway segments onto an anime gril and suddenly it's a franchise. What the fuck
>who all look very different
He's kind of right though. I don't follow anything to do with Touhou but I could still identify some of them, whereas if you asked me to identify any boats I wouldn't be able to.
I'm not into Touhou and I can't identify anyone besides poor shrinemaiden, cuntbag witch, 07 meme bunny loli, and yukari milf.
i can at least tell which boat is classified into from the obvious shrine maiden uniform, the seifuku, the german dark colors, the abyssals etc. I've actually started to learn some of their names. Boatsluts a best.
