What’s in the Box? – Episode 4

And if you thought Episode 4 comes quickly after 3, 5 will be up in 2 or 3 days, once I’ve filmed that, and after that it’ll be at least 1 photo-review, and a few more unboxings. I figured I’d fill up my YouTube channel as much as I can before I’m off to Japan, where approximately 98,36% of all new content will be about food.

Enjoy!


What’s in the Box? – Episode 3

And here’s What’s in the Box? Episode 3, as promised!

A fairly small box when compared to the last 3 episodes, mostly because I turned down my BUY ALL THE THINGS-knob a fair bit because of my upcoming trip to Japan (3 weeks left!).

Sorry about bits being out of shot half the time, I moved the box around after centering the camera on it, and didn’t think it would be that bad. Next one will be shot with my new 35mm lens, which has helped quite a bit with that problem.

Unboxing: Touwa Erio Beach Queen by Wave

And here’s the third unboxing I promised – uploaded a bit back by now, but might still be new to some people.

Tomorrow will bring a new What’s in the Box?, and hopefully either another video from the Japanfestival or an unboxing.

Enjoy!


Unboxing: Amano Touka Nendoroid by GSC

And here’s today’s unboxing: Good Smile Company’s Nendoroid incarnation of Amano Touka, the Book Girl who’s absolutely not a demon. Or a gremlin. But she is incredibly cute.

Apart from CthulhAmano, though it is one of the more unique Nendoroid-faces you can get.

Also, sorry about the weird glitch after about 10 minutes, my camera decided to stop recording all of a sudden. And it had some trouble focussing, so I’m sorry it’s a quite a bit out of focus in the second half of the video. I’m probably not going to use AF anymore… though with the lack of better lighting I sort of need to. Ah well, something to worry about tomorrow when I’m shooting more videos.

Enjoy this one for now! (Also, note it’s longer than 15 minutes! Yay longer upload limit ^_^b)


Unboxing: Saber Alter by Good Smile Company

I really should stop procrastinating  and actually post things here… I shall blame it on partying last weekend due to it being my birthday on Sunday. All the other times I shall blame on laziness.

Anyhow, I got around to filming 3 more unboxings, and will be posting them up here for the next few days, and in the mean time I’ll film a few more and render out the latest unboxing video (from last weekend), and I’ve also got some more videos from the Japanfestival to render out, one overview and one for the karate-demonstration. I might also film another unboxing tonight, since even more things arrived at my parents’ place during the week, if I don’t get around to that, I’ll do that next weekend.

And I’m still waiting for my LED video lamp I ordered… It’s been 1,5 month now, and the tracking code gives up 2 different statuses, one of which can’t physically be possible, the other indicating it got shipped back to China for some unknown reason. So until that’s sorted, lighting’s going to be fairly wonky, as I’m reliant on sunlight, which isn’t constant with clouds moving around. At least my 50mm lens is pretty light-sensitive, and I’ll get a 35mm soon, which means better close-up shots, and when combined with the video lamp, proper lighting.

For now, enjoy the unboxing:

 


What’s in the Box – Episode 2

Episode 2 of my What’s in the Box series is now uploaded, watch it below – now in glorious 1080p with good audio, thanks to the wonders of my new Nikon D7000 and Audio-Technica ATR-3350 microphone!

… and me actually looking up some tips about filming with a DSLR, instead of just fumbling around like I did with the previous videos (except the Japanmarkt ones, I knew what I was doing there) ^.^;;

Anyhow, enjoy the video!


Unboxing: Fiolina Germi by Embrace Japan

Today’s unboxing: Fiolina Germi from Metal Slug 4 by Embrace Japan.

Please forgive me for mispronouncing her name for the entire video – I really shouldn’t record these when I’m tired.

As usual – watch it at 720p or it’ll look horrible.

Bought from Hobbystock for ¥8316 (RRP ¥8800).

Review: Shirai Kuroko by Penguin Parade

It’s a bit late, but here’s the review for Penguin Parades Shirai Kuroko, companion to  the Misaka sisters I reviewed last week.

Stuff I Want: Kobato & Maria Catgirls


In the category of “Shut Up And Take My Money!”: Hasegawa Kobato and Takayama Maria, from Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukanai, by Max Factory.

Just over 13 cm tall at 1/7 scale, I found both of them a few days ago on MFC, and was seriously hoping they wouldn’t be opened up for pre-order for a while. Then, Hobbystock sent out their newsletter today, and sure enough – open for pre-order…

Oh well, at  ¥5100 each, it could’ve been worse, and they are very pretty, especially the eyes.

Unboxing: Aisaka Taiga Nendoroid
