Guess what today is! It’s Moeronpan’s 4th anniversary! I was actually really surprised when I saw the notification. This blog started as a way for me to procrastinate during my university years. Since then, I’ve invited Ariana to join me, graduated, started a dumb webcomic, moved to Japan, started working full-time, and fallen in and out of various fandoms (remember when I used to blog Hetalia all the damn time? Remember my Vocaloid PVposts? Vocaloid is still one of my main fandoms though (…hence this review of course) but man is it hard to keep up with). And, of course, ran out of a lot of free time which makes blogging series really difficult for me. I don’t want to quit Moeronpan, and doing the anime seasons First Impressions is still a lot of fun for me, for better or worse. But, don’t worry! Even though I didn’t blog anything this season again, there are some shows I am definitely taking on next season, including one I’ll be co-blogging with Ariana.
That has nothing to do with this review, I just thought some kind of mini-speech was in order considering this milestone. I’ve heard that the average lifespan of an anime review blog is two years, but we’ve passed that twice, even if we’re not the most jam-packed review blog out there (which is my fault. I’m really grateful for Ariana’s content).
And so, on to the really overdue review for the Gumi nendoroid.
Continuing in my tradition of doing figure reviews months after they actually come out. Let’s see if I can get this done before the figma reaches me! This does contain what is basically spoilers of episode 3 of Madoka Magica but really, if you don’t at least know about the events in the episode I can only assume you live under some kind of internet rock and thus probably wouldnt be that interested in this review anyway.

Hey everyone, it’s that reviewer that can’t even keep up with a weekly 3 minute series! But at least I can still get my figure reviews done(if getting them done months after the figure comes out counts as ‘getting them done’). But in my absence I got a new camera, plus wordpress seems to have gone all weird and won’t let me put captions on pictures but I’m sure you can live without those.
