Opening SongNo Scared by One Ok Rock

My Thoughts

 Untitled-3

I’ve been a Black Rock Shooter fan for a while. When I first heard about this game I went all nerd gamer syndrome and pre-ordered the Japanese release instantly.  I’d like to give a shout out to NIS America, the publisher for North America and Europe, for letting me review this game. Here we have Black Rock Shooter the Game but unlike it’s original release you can find this version on the PSN for $19.99. I did a review on the Japanese version of this game about a year ago with the White Rock Shooter Figma. So far the only real difference I see between the two versions is the English translation, other than that it’s a complete port from the Japanese version with the opening theme song by One Ok Rock.

Black Rock Shooter the Game Hoodie.

fountain

A while back I met up with some old friends and I found out one makes custom fleece hoodies, so I asked if he could make me one from Black Rock Shooter, as long as I had a design he could do it. So a bit about who makes these hoodies, his name is Koru Fox from Snow Flash Designs and also makes Fursuits, Plushies, Chain Maille, Accessories and more! (Read more…)

BRS – Black Rock Shooter Animation Figma

With a growing popularity Black?Rock Shooter (BRS) has been seen as a few different Figmas in the past and with the release of Black?Rock Shooter The Animation, yet another BRS makes it’s way to the Figma line but this one is a bit different.  1st off the jacket, if you didn’t know better you would think it’s made out of rubber since it’s flexible, also the tail coats have independent joins to them allowing for posing or dynamic action stances.

BLK – Huke Selected Works and BRSB Figma!

A few months ago i posted a re-review for a Art Book called BLK. I just received this and it’s just beautiful!! 240 pages of art work by Huke who designed the characters for Steins; Gate and Black Rock Shooter. The book it self is hard bound with a cover sleeve of some featured art work from the book and a small insert of BRSB for what i think is a freebie of some sort. Flipping through some of the pages i was very impressed on the deal of work that went into these pages of art, so much that i had to share this with everyone. There are some i think original art by Huke of some Mechas, Armored Troops and some characters i don’t think i recognize from any one anime or manga so if anyone has picked up this art book let me know if you happen to figure it out.

Black Rock Shooter the Game Figma

It’s been one hell of a year and on the last day i got Black Rock Shooter the Game Figma. Of all the Figmas i’ve got over the past year this one i wasn’t expecting to be all that great from all the pictures and ads i’ve seen since she was announced and released but after i got her she turned out to be a great buy.

From the original BRS to BRStG version they in my opinion made her more proportioned, looks better and doesn’t have as much shiny clothing like her hands and coat. The wings on her back do get in the way and isn’t as movable as i would hope for but does come off very easy so if they do get in the way just remove them, plus the smaller wings also move as well. This version on BRS is a bit taller as well and well has a very big belt buckle, I don’t know why this caught my attention  but i felt i should mention this. Some of her draw backs would be the front hair piece and face. Normally when you take off the front hair piece the face doesn’t come off but with her the face sits loose on the face base but as long as the front hair piece is on that doesn’t really matter, it’s more of a observation than a real flaw. The hands are very tight as well, so if you got her you know what i mean. When you place the new hands in the arm sockets they feel like if you try move or remove them, it’s almost like your going to break the hand off it’s peg. (I do recommend being careful with them.)

Over all this version on BRS i like better and i hope to use her in future projects, at least until the end of the month were there will be another version of BRS coming out with the Art Book “BLK”. I hope you come back when it comes out and read on what i find out about the new version and this neat art book! Oh yes i must mention that i noticed i have way to many black things on my desk and a lot of the pictures kinda of blended in, so i’m sorry about the shots, i’m hoping to set up a real place to take pictures in the future.

Interview with the Dead.

Here we have another Black Rock Shooter (BRS) Figma, Dead Master. With a large bone looking scythe and 2 floating skulls, this Figma does prove to be very nice and very unique. From the BRS Figma line, Dead Master is one of the harder ones to find and thus has become rare among collectors.

Like most of the Figma lines, Dead Master does show to be very possible for various battle scenes or action posses. But alike some Figmas, there is some things about this one that are annoying. The 2 skulls that she comes with have a hard time fitting into the stand that come with. I don’t want to force them in to hard since i’ve had issues of almost/have broke parts of the figures by doing that. Since her hands are very long and boney like, getting her to hold the scythe can be hard and if your also trying to be careful, you’ll have a small fight waiting for you trying to get her to hold that. This isn’t a real issue but more of me just being careful, but the wings on her back i just feel could break off easy. So if you just got Dead Master i would be very careful around her back area.

If your a BRS fan and want to get Dead Master for your collection i would advise to check out http://ekizo.mandarake.co.jp/shop/en/ since i’ve seen her pop up there from time to time for about 4000 yen.

BLK Limited Edition (figma BRSB Included)

Okay so i’m a fan of art, and i’m not just talking about gallery art. But illustration art, here’s just an example of what i mean that i just found.

 

Now, this version of this publishing comes with a figma from Black Rock Shooter. If your not familiar with BRS, its a anime short that is now a game on the PSP. But this ver seems to be a off shoot of BRS but don’t know all the details about this ver.
It seems to be a nice figure and has this, Kingdom Heart feel to it with the blue crown on her head, and i’m still torn on if i like it or not.
