Happy 5th Birthday, Kagamine Rin & Len!

Click image to see the full-size version!

Today (or yesterday, if you live in Japan!) marks the fifth anniversary of the yellow Crypton Vocaloids. In those five years no other Vocaloid has even come close to their positions near my heart and I'd like to celebrate alongside my readers.

Happy Holidays 2012!

Happy holidays from Bunny and Gary! Looks like Gary has already gotten this party started, but he and I hope all the readers have a wonderful holiday season and a great New Year's!

And yes, I have taken away Gary's car keys, just so you know.

Issues Leaving Comments

It has been brought to my attention that people are having issues posting comments on the blog, mainly with Wordpress via OpenID with Firefox (there appears to be no issues while using the Internet Explorer browser). While all my settings appear to be completely fine, it seems to be an issue with OpenID that has not yet been resolved by Blogger.

I will continue to do what I can to try and fix this issue, but for now I ask that if you are unable to leave a comment with a username, please leave one using the anonymous option and leave your username and site URL so conversations can still be held. If you leave a comment, I promise to write you back!

Again, sorry for this issue.

Movie Review: Rubber (2010)

Sometimes a movie will roll into your life that you don't get tired of. Or it leads it's way into endless puns and not-sure-if-I-just-wasted-eighty-minutes-of-life-or-not.

Fig Jargon: December 2012

Wow, already at the last Jargon post of the year. Time sure flies. Pre-orders for releases next year have been in motion for several months now. My furthest out order is on March (two Nendos and one scale). I so want the Mami RAH selected for May though....

Monthly UTAU Ranking 2012.09

This month has been crazy busy, though I feel like I haven't really gotten anything done (at least not art, blog, UTAU-wise). Sorry for the wait!

Fig Jargon: November 2012

I actually have no items on order for November. o.o But after October's orders, I'm not unhappy about that. For this month I'm seeing even more Griffon re-releases (mainly "Queen's Blade" characters), though I'm not really interested in most of them. There's also been a ton of October delays (I avoided them~). That's not to say that things aren't catching my eye....

Monthly UTAU Ranking 2012.08

Sorry things have been late the past while; I got very sick and then had to move. Hopefully things will settle down soon.

Fig Jargon: October 2012

Looks like Griffon is re-releasing several "Touhou" figs this month, including some PVCs of the Scarlet sisters (some of which I own~). If you've been wanting some of those, I'd suggesting placing an order at AmiAmi.

If you watched this week's VOCALOID Ranking, you may have been surprised by the sudden appearance of UTAU. Read on for some more details.

Fig Preview: Kamui Gakupo Nendoroid

I have made it my goal to own all the standard Vocaloid Nendoroids and figmas (I can't afford to buy all the other variants, nor do I care for some of them). I was jumping up and down when Gakupo went up for pre-order and I simply cannot wait to get him in the mail.

Fig Jargon: September 2012

I actually have only two items on order for this month, though my husband is getting the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector's Set, so money is being spent!

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Fig Preview: Suenaga Mirai Nendoroid

This will be the first post where I present official images and details on figurines that I personally am buying. Money away!

BC's Trip to Toronto

So recently I hopped on a plane and went out to Toronto, Canada. This was my first time both on a plane and going out of the country.

Monday, August 6, 2012

Fig Jargon: August 2012

Sorry this month's post is a little late, as I was out of the country. Also, I didn't originally have anything on order for this month, though last month's Duram Sherif got delayed, so my July orders are on hold to ship until she comes in stock (I do so love HLJ's new Private Warehouse option~).

Monthly UTAU Ranking 2012.06

I've been super busy lately, so I'm VERY behind on the Weekly UTAU Rankings, so I'll be hearing a lot of songs that are new to me this month.

Anime Review: Upotte!!

The "Upotte!!" anime is an original net animation (ONA) series based on the manga by Tennouji Kitsune. Lets "shoot in" and see what I think about this slightly-odd series about anthropomorphized guns.

New "Sailor Moon" Anime and What It Means to Me

Anime News Network reported yesterday that a new anime for the "Sailor Moon" franchise was announced for summer 2013. I have a few geeky words to say about this news.

Saturday, June 30, 2012

Fig Jargon: July 2012

Every month I'll be taking a look at the upcoming figurines for that month and what I like and don't like. Theres a lot set for July, so lets get ready!

MELTDOWN Vocaloid Photoshoot 2012-05-25

"Roshin Yuukai" (also commonly known as "MELTDOWN") by iroha(sasaki) (music) and kuma(alfled) (lyrics) is my number one favorite Vocaloid song. Period. So when my friend Chikane-chan asked me if I would like to be Child Rin to go with her Adult Rin cosplay, I was on that faster than a person with half a brain cell walks out on a "Twilight" movie.

Bunnychan's UTAU Voicebank Very First Test Run

I spent most of today recording for my UTAU voicebank, which I've been wanting to do since forever. Honestly, I don't really know what I am doing (HAH) but I'm really, really excited. Video after the break!

Berserk Photoshoot 2012-05-26

At Animazment I was able to meet a fellow cosplayer, Damian, from the same series I was doing, "Berserk" by Miura Kentarou. Thanks to my husband we were able to get together for a photoshoot, which turned out to be a ton of fun!

Monthly UTAU Ranking 2012.04

I was encouraged by AdventSora on YT to continue covering UTAU and Vocaloid in some way after I left the Vocaloidism blog. While I can no longer do the Weekly Rankings, I see no reason why I could not do the Monthly ones. *knock on wood* So here I am, with the first installment of what I hope is many to come!

Animazement 2012 Con Report

To start off this blog it was suggested to me that I do a recap of this year's Animazement convention. It is held yearly on Memorial Day weekend in Raleigh, North Carolina (some early years were held in Durham). I've been attending since 2002 (I STILL kick myself that I couldn't attend in 2001, since Kotobuki Tsukasa, my favorite character designer, was there. ARG!). I haven't been to a lot of cons, but I see AZ as a special one.
