Slightly less late than the figure reviews usually are!

I did mean to get this done before the end of last year, but  failing that I can at least get it done before the new anime season First Impressions kick off.

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.

Such a bright and energetic box too!

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.

My figure reviews always end up really belated, but at least this one isn’t as late as the HMO Miku was!

The box is so cool!

Hey remember when I posted here? Here’s another overdue nendoroid review.
Since I work full-time now (and try to devote any free time to my webcomic – by the way the character poll is closing soon so I’d vote now if you haven’t done so yet hinthint), I can’t say for sure how many (if any) series I’ll be taking on next anime season but I hope I can do at least one. I’ve currently got 4 other figures on preorder though so there will be  of course those reviews when they come out, at least.

Hey everyone! I’m actually alive, believe it or not! (which shouldn’t be too surprising for anyone who follows my tumblr). I havent had time to review anything (or even really watch anything) because of moving to Japan and all but I took all the photos for this review before I left Australia and decided to assemble the review here when I got some decent time. This review really should have been done months ago,this figure was released at the end of January… but… oh well.

Tada!
