Another lovely figure arrives today.
One of many figures that I was eagarly awaiting that were released this month. Here we have Alice Carrol from ARIA The Animation, one of my most favourite anime series last year. Released by Yujin (and it being the third ARIA figure) and still available from HLJ for only 2500 yen. I already have Mizunashi Akari which I may take pictures of later but I have yet to get Granzchesta Aika as I missed out on the chance on preordering at the time. I find this to be a very nice figure. Alice even comes with interchangable faces but they look no different except for the lips. She even comes with two Maa-shachou (President Maa) figures, a miniture one standing and a larger one lying down. Now my rating on this is 8 out of 10 though the only thing I don’t like about this is the requirement to use a support to stand her up. Just like Akari it is a bit of a pain to keep it absolutely still. Now all I need is an Aika figure, which unfortunetly can only be bought from eBay, and I will have the complete set. Though now I wonder will Yujin release figures of the Three Water Fairies Alicia, Akira and Athena? Only time will tell.
This time I tried my actual desk to take pictures this time, And I am quite happy with the results. I had a more consistant result as there was more control of lighting and a more flat surface. Though I may have to try using walls for the left and right side to help reflect more light.
