Dakimakura Review – Nagomi & Sono from Illust Guerrilla (NSFW)

Illust Guerrilla Nagomi and Sono Dakimakura Review

When I wrote my first dakimakura review, I mumbled something about wanting the raunchiest one I could find. And yeah, the Tony one is pretty explicit, as are many things based on Tony’s art. My newest pillowcase – my seventh dakimakura – however, stands far apart from my other ones in terms of salaciousness. Compared to it, Tony Taka’s dakimakura are as mild and inoffensive as 3-2-1 Contact.

Mari Illustrious Makinami from Neon Genesis Evangelion

Kotobukiya Mari Illustrious Makinami from Neon Genesis Evangelion Figure Review

The longevity and impact of the Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise is nearly without peer in anime, and a large part of its lasting popularity is due to its iconic characters, particularly Rei and Asuka. And what’s not to like about them? Both are young, sexy girls who are curiously well-developed for their age and wear tight bodysuits when going into battle. One is a taciturn, robotic introvert and the other is an assertive, mercurial hotshot with the temperament of nitroglycerin.

None of Gainax’s other properties have come close to the endurance of their foremost creation, and so they’ve taken the obvious course of action and remade the series, sticking in a new girl in the process. In this hobby, it’s the closest thing to having your own money printer.

Psylocke from the Uncanny X-Men

Kotobukiya Psylocke from The Uncanny X-Men Figure Review

When Kotobukiya introduced the world to their Marvel Bishoujo line, I immediately thought that Psylocke was an obvious choice for that series. She’s Asian, she’s hot, she doesn’t wear many clothes, she’s a perfect match. Kotobukiya took their time announcing her, but announce her they did and while I was thrilled, my happiness was tempered by the fact that Rogue and the Black Widow fell short of what they could have been. Regardless, Psylocke is my favorite Marvel Comics character, so there was never any question of whether I would acquire her.

Hyper Nurse Victory Yuno from Keumaya (NSFW)

Hyper Nurse Victory Yuno from Keumaya Figure Review

I’ve reviewed a couple of Keumaya figures here and I think I’ve converted a few people on the interwebs into Keumaya fans. I’ve been looking forward to Hyper Nurse Victory Yuno for a while and now that she is here I am happy to spread the good word about Keumaya once more.

Elwing from Shining Wind (Goddess of Forest Version)

Kotobukiya Elwing from Shining Wind Figure Review

You know, character introductions can be really tough for me to write sometimes, especially when I don’t know jack about a character’s background. When I do, it’s pretty easy, but for a character like Elwing here, I don’t really know anything about her and I’ll sit in front of the keyboard trying to come up with something witty to write, but in this case, I want to go back to playing video games and admiring my new pillowcase, so I’m just going to say that I like Tony Taka’s art, I like big figures, I like cheap figures, and I like figures where the subject isn’t wearing many clothes. Put all those together and you’ve got my attention, and that’s why I have Elwing.

Dakimakura Review – Natsuru Senou from Kämpfer


Natsuru Senou from Kampfer Dakimakura Review

As expensive as dakimakura are – for rectangular pieces of fabric with a picture printed on them, anyway – I keep buying them. Here we have one of the main character of Kämpfer, and also probably the closest that this site is going to get to featuring a review of a hobby item with a dude.

Shoujo M from the Art of Hanaharu Naruko (NSFW)

Native Shoujo M from the Art of Hanaharu Naruko Figure Review

Ahh, it feels like it’s been a while since I reviewed a porno figure. Too long it has been. But to my great pleasure, I have a new one here, and it’s from the best ero figure maker in the business. New h-figure, the weather is great, payday is tomorrow, and I’ve got chili dogs for dinner, I can hardly ask for more.

Seira Orgel from Chaos;HEAd

Orchid Seed Seira Orgel from Chaos;HEAd Figure Review

I’d planned on wrapping up my reviews of Alter’s Ikki Tousen figures by doing a writeup of Kanu Unchou, but then I got Seira in the mail and I figured that the world doesn’t really need another Kanu review right now. Accordingly, I decided I’d photograph Seira first, being that I’m still trying to think of a way to shoot Kanu without making it look utterly boring.

Ryomou Shimei from Ikki Tousen


Alter Ryomou Shimei from Ikki Tousen Figure Review

I hadn’t planned on picking up any of Alter’s other Ikki Tousen figures, but Amiami had Ryomou and Kanu in stock the other week and with their shipping discount promotion still ongoing, I couldn’t really think of any reason not to buy them, so I did.

Kakouen Myousai from Ikki Tousen


Alter Kakouen Myousai from Ikki Tousen Figure Review

Ikki Tousen is a staple source for anime figure manufacturers, and with the manga still ongoing and its fourth television series currently being aired, it can be expected that they will continue chucking them out. For years, fans of busty kung fu girls with exploding clothes have been fed a steady diet of Kanu Unchou, Hakufu Sonsaku, and Ryomou Shimei, with Orchid Seed being the latest to exhibit a figure of the latter. Now I’ve got no problem with that, being that I lived off of chicken nuggets and hot dogs back in school, day in and day out. However, even one with a diet as poor as I hungers for something different every now and then. Sometimes, a man wants steak tartare. And with that admittedly discursive and not entirely relevant introduction out of the way, we have here a figure of Kakouen Myousai, the humorless, dress-wearing enforcer of Kyosho High.
