About two years ago an Indiegogo project came up that Anime fans could get behind. That combine Cat Ears (Nekomimi) with working speakers in them, headphones with LED lights to create the Cat Ear Headphones. The crowdfunding project was asking for around $250.000 but far exceeded their goal, ending with just over $7 million and even more pre-orders. The small company known as Axent Wear had a huge hurdle to cross 20,000+ of people backed their Cat Ear Headphones, finding a place to manufacture them all. Over the course of two years most of the backers were thinking that the company wasn’t following through with their promises till an announcement in late 2014: they had partnered with Brookstone to manufacture their headphones and will be shipping in the 3rd or 4th quarter of 2015. The Axent Cat Ear Headphones were released to the backers on Nov 30th and now can be found at all Brookstone locations for $149.99. It comes in 4 colors, Red, Green, Blue and Purple.

Real Acton Heroes is a doll manufacture of popular shows from Star Wars to Legend of Zelda (LInk) but don’t get these mixed up with the dolls hanging in your grandmas house. This Saber comes from Fate/Zero that came with a bonus summoning circle for first release buyers. What drove me to like this Saber she comes with more than one face pallet, which isn’t very common for Real Action Heroes.
The Real Action Heroes dolls are more like big action figures since they have ball joints and double jointed elbows that allow them for more of an array of poses. What makes these dolls different is under the skin is a frame or the skeleton for the back, shoulders, hips and head to move more freely. (Read more…)
Another year has past and left good memories, so many in fact that it was hard to choose my top 5 anime’s of 2013 so I’m doing something a bit different. I’m choosing my top 5 anime’s I liked and the top 5 best mentions of 2013. But my favorite memory of 2013 was when I did the Sumo Ramen Challenge (photo above).
Number 5) Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko
What’s better than throwing Hentai everywhere but a show that’s not about Hentai. With the colorful cast and a very funny story Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko places 5th in my top 5 mainly because it was so out there that it left me smiling and laughing at the antics of a perverted kid and the stony cat statue. For a side buster check out Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko and be sure to have your body pillow near by.

Once again Nis America brings us another RPG and like the rest you have the love story, the conflict and the fighting to win against the baddies but unlike other RPGs it’s brought to you in a whole new way. This game I’m torn from being pleased and not pleased and I’m going to give both reasons as I go through the game details, but I will say that it was just fun to play through this game and gave a refreshing take on the RPG genre that it really needed.
When you get board ideas pop in your head that sometimes just sounds ridiculous but so ridiculous that you have to do it. (Read more…)

Like most of you, I like FLCL (Fooly Cooly) and been on the fence on whether I should get a Canti figure or not and as you can see i ended up getting the RIO:bone Canti by Sentinal co. ltd. First i like to say that he’s a lot bigger than the pictures and by far the best possible figure i have yet to receive. This version of Canti is known as the “Pirate King” Canti where his counter part is blue colored. This figure comes with 4 set of hands, 2 heads with the Pirate King symbol and removable screens, 1 Guitar, 1 Cape and Stand. (Read more…)

To help me with this I had to turn to the internet to remind me what came out this year and oh the memories~ (Read more…)
