After a successful first episode of Tokimeki Radio, we chatted with some of our friends about the episode and the games we mentioned. One of our friends, Steph, made the discovery that….some of the art in the game Uh Ah! Capybara is traced! I didn’t even notice it because I was exhausted from a very busy week and I was making sure I had all the material + audio fixes done for the episode to be out on time…but it’s very much true. 😢 Another friend of ours, Ali, supported the tracing claim by comparing other images as well. Here are a compilation of Steph’s images and her own thoughts on this:

Winter Wonder Festival 2016 – Elly’s Picks!
It was a magical time for figure collectors on the first weekend of February; Wonder Festival time was upon us once more! ✨ Wonder Festival (or WonFes for short) is a semi-annual event where people can showcase their garage kits and even sell a limited amount of them. But wait, there’s MORE! Not only are garage kits showcased, but major figure companies make an appearance to announce new figures that are going to be released soon along with showing some of the prototypes. Figure collectors around the world talked about this winter’s event with their favorite picks that they want to add to their collections, so I’d like to do the same. Here are my picks for this winter’s WonFes!

Max Factory’s Aoba Seragaki Figure Review!
Hello, fellow collectors! This post is definitely long-overdue, so I’m happy to finally be able to share it with all of you! 💕 In this post, we’ll be taking a close look at DRAMAtical Murder’s Aoba Seragaki in figure form, courtesy of Max Factory. DRAMAtical Murder is the most well-known BL game, and for a good reason too! From the character designs and how well the characters are written, to the game’s setting and unique music, along with all the attainable endings, DRAMAtical Murder is just oozing in style. The game takes place in the fictional island of Midorijima, which is under financial hold by Toue Corporation. Toue Corporation has been turning the island to the seemingly luxurious invite-only resort called Platinum Jail, while the island’s original residents were left behind in the slums, where the young entertain themselves by joining gangs and playing the popular cyber game named Rhyme. I’m sure you all know I have a lot of love for this game, since I talked about it A LOT last year in May as I played through both the first game and Re:Connect.
Without further delay, let’s talk about this amazing Aoba figure! ✨
