Taiga Aisaka China Dress Ver. by Wave

February 09, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Figures

First off, to everyone that celebrates it, Happy Belated Chinese New Year! I actually wanted to get this post up before the New Year, but life has been keeping me busy all week. Hope you all enjoyed getting red pockets, eating lots of food, and watching celebrations.

As you can see, I did manage to get myself this exclusive Taiga figure from Wave despite some minor major setbacks, though for a much higher price. She arrived back in December, right around Christmas time so that was a nice treat.


Figure Giveaway Contest

January 30, 2010 By: Nopy Category: Announcements

Some of you may recall that I bought two boxes of the Toy’s Works Toradora figures a few months back. That was to ensure that I got the complete set since a single box isn’t guaranteed to have all of the figures. Well, it turns out that both boxes had the complete set so now one of them is just lying around.

With that said, rather than throwing out the extra figures, I’ve decided to give them away by holding a contest. The details of the contest are below:


Toy’s Works Toradora Figures

November 14, 2009 By: Nopy Category: Figures

These shots of the Toy’s Works Toradora figures have been sitting on my hard drive for a few months so I figure it was about time to post them here.


As you can see, I bought two boxes of the figures. Why you ask? It was because When I was ordering it, there was a note that said figures were placed in boxes at random and it wasn’t guaranteed that all figures would be in one box. Considering I wanted the whole collection, I opted to buy to boxes just in case (I know, I got caught up in a cheap marketing trick).


Megami Magazine Vol. 109

May 15, 2009 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine


Time for a look at another volume of Megami Magazine. This issue has a lot of goodies in terms of posters, and some very very nice extras which you will find near the bottom of this post.


Megami Magazine Vol. 108

April 28, 2009 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine


After nearly a month of waiting, I finally got vol. 108 of Megami Magazine. This volume contains a lot of Clannad After Story and mostly posters of older series. Since I had some free time today I decided to scan the posters in to see how they turned out.


Toradora – Ending Thoughts

March 30, 2009 By: Nopy Category: Anime

Toradora has been my favourite anime this season, and the season finale certainly didn’t disappoint. So many anime start out well but have horrible endings, but Toradora kept up the drama all the way until the end. I figure there’s a bunch of other blogs where you can read about what happened, so I decided this time to just discuss what I thought about the main characters and their development through the story.



Megami Magazine Vol. 107

March 22, 2009 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine


This volume of Megami Magazine features the girls of Toradora on the front cover (yay!) As you can probably tell from my other posts, Toradora is one of my favourite series so I was really happy to see Ami, Minori and Taiga on the cover ^.^


Megami Magazine Vol. 106

March 02, 2009 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine

I had so much paper build up on my desk during the last couple of weeks that my copy of Megami Magazine volume 106 got lost in all of it. This volume features Nagi and Zange on the cover and includes part 2 of the book-in-book section for Kannagi. There were some nice posters this time, but I don’t know where half of them are from, I guess I’m really falling behind on my anime. (more…)

Toradora ep. 21

March 01, 2009 By: Nopy Category: Anime

This week’s episode of Toradora was all about drama. With the end of the series just around the corner, things are heating up and tensions are rising between the main characters.

Just a few minutes into the episode, we already see the first argument taking place when Ryuji asks Taiga why she didn’t tell him about meeting with Kitamura during New Years. They actually showed Taiga and Kitamura meeting at New Years for a few seconds in a previous episode. What the two of them talked about is obviously a secret since Taiga got mad and refused to say anything after Ryuji asked her about it.

Toradora ep. 19 & 20

February 20, 2009 By: Nopy Category: Anime

There are only a handful of episodes left in the Toradora series and from the looks of episodes 19 and 20, the climax will be good.

Episode 19 continues on with the Christmas arc where the school’s Christmas party is about to start and Taiga is doing her best to help Ryuji confess his feelings for Minori by convincing her to show up to the party. The problem with Taiga though is that she’s always hanging around Ryuji and they look like they’re going out.
