VF-31J Siegfried Hayate Custom Deculture version – Macross Delta – 1/72 Bandai model kit

Having missed out on the VF-25 Macross Frontier’s deculture kits, I bought the Deculture Siegfried immediately. I’m a big fan of fancy aircraft art ๐Ÿ™‚  This particular variant of VF-31J is the final version, after Hayate customized Messer’s aircraft to be his own. But with all the Freyja hearts you probably can’t tell ๐Ÿ™‚  I…

VF-31F Siegfried Messer Custom – Macross Delta – Bandai 1/72 model kit

Second of the 4 VF-31 I’ve built so far, I got Messer’s ride for its grim reaper goodness and the extra Walkure decals from the promo campaign. Turns out these decals weren’t in short demand so now I have 3 sets :-/ Macross Delta has its critics and Messer is a cool character that just…

Wang Bailong – Blade Arcus from Shining – 1/7 figure model kit

Wang Bailong (็Ž‹็™ฝ้พ) is a heroine in the game Blade Arcus from Shining, which appears to be a 2D fighting game set in the Shining universe from the illustrator Tony. His design are quite adorable and have spawned a number of nice figures, with me buying a few of them such as Sakuya. The original…

Macross Delta VF-31J Siegfried Hayate with Fast Pack – Bandai 1/72 model kit

Macross Delta isn’t the best of the Macross series (and I have yet to finish the highly rated Frontier), but the Siegfried is a nice plane in concept. I’m not sure why I’m building so many of them really (this being the first of 4). They’re lacking the armored variants even. I’m not super thrilled…

1/24 Takara/Wave Scopedog mania

I’ve been largely ignoring the 1/24 Takara/Wave scopedog kits in my backlog and written them off as “will not build” after the 1/20 Bandai versions came out. The former requires a lot of work to make them look good enough whereas the Bandais were easier to build into nicer kits. Case closed? Except I’ve been…

Nankurunaisa

Have been sick for a bit so I could find time to finish Blood+. The ending is what you’d expect except for a few small twists, but overall a very well-done ending to a nice series, and very emotional as well. One of the best endings I’ve seen in a while… unrushed, well-paced and resolved…

Yuuuuukikaze!

Just finished Yukikaze tonight, a sci-fi OVA mixed with great aerial combat scenes. I said earlier that I like Macross Zero for its aerial fight scenes, but Yukikaze’s make up for the lack of flashy missle chases with very realistic cockpit-centric angles and stylish goosebump moments! The whole alien(JAMs)-human struggle backdrop is quite interesting, but…

Jigoku Shoujo

I got a bit burned out from working on Four continuously for the past two weeks (and still have to fix some stuff ๐Ÿ™ ), so I took a detour and started watching Jigoku Shoujo (or Hell Girl). Basically the plot revolves around a girl from hell who answer people’s wishes for revenge by claiming…

Blood+

I’ve finished the 2nd arc of Blood+, and I must say I’m liking the show a lot. The basic plot is pretty standard – evil corp turning people into monsters, girl kick-ass fighter, forgot who she is, lived peacefully with family until it got destroyed, trying to find herself. But the details somehow pull the…
