It’s practically a running joke on Simon to disagree with the majority of the carnivores on the internet, but this year I’m just especially tired of it. Those of us girls who collect figurines and statues have been being ruthlessly spoiled by companies like Good Smile, Kotobukiya, Megahouse, and Union Creative and not only are people still complaining about the quality of the figures but they are still saying male figures are rare as well. This year alone I ‘ve obtained 36 male figures not including 16 nendoroids, 2 action figures, and 3 prize figures. So that’s 57 male figures of reasonable quality. And they’re still complaining.

Character: Rei Sakuma
Run: Limited and Exclusive
Release Date: Dec 2016

Wonfest! This was one happy fangirl. Along with this Palmate they also made Mao and Ritsu. We learned that the latter would also be getting a figure from Alter. You
guys may have seen my review for Mao, now it’s time to see how Rei turned out. Did he steal my heart back from Mao?
Here we are on the cusp of Halloween as such it seemed only right to review the cutest little yokai in my collection. May I Introduce Kogitsune.
