Black★Rock Shooter Love! ♥

Apologies folks for the lack of posts for the past… *checks date of last post* month. Goodness. That has really been a while since I last posted. Well this isn’t much of a new post but hopefully, I’ll get off my lazy ass and start a few articles that I’ve been meaning to start for a while.

So *cough* on to the topic… as the title says, and probably fellow (avid) BRS fans have already know by now, pre-orders for the figma and nendoroid incarnations of Black★Rock Shooter are have been opened at your favorite online retailers (like AmiAmi, Otacute, and HLJ) since 12:00 noon JST today.

I was pretty ecstatic that I actually was able to catch the pre-orders on time. I missed BRS as a scaled figure because of the lack of funds… but since I’m more of a Nendo + figma collector… and the price of both would make up for a single scaled figure… I went and got myself these lovely incarnations of BRS. It’s going to be my very first AmiAmi purchase so I might make a post about their services. Hopefully, it won’t end up as a rant like frost first did on his purchase of figma Cute.

For those who have not yet gotten the chance to pre-order BRS nendo and figma, they are still available in the following stores:

In other news, it seems that the Black★Rock Shooter anime is going to be streamed online in Japan for free. Although there’s no news yet if it’s going to be yet again, a Japan-exclusive thing or there would be official streaming sites for the International audience. Now… the skeptic in me thought initially that they might use this as a marketing opportunity for the DVD and make yet another exclusive release for a figure… since GSC seems to be liking that treatment very much lately. Thankfully, they didn’t choose figma and Nendo BRS as the limited edition items… but I’m really thinking they’d pull something like the free eroge when you buy the eroge character’s figma strategy. Although, hopefully, if I do fall into that temptation… I won’t end up broke. ><;

So, have you pre-ordered your own Nendo or figma BRS? Or would you rather stick with the scaled figures? And, thoughts on the free streaming promotion for the anime?

    Can’t wait for the anime! And free in Japan… that makes it really EPICly AWESOME@! All the more reason now to love GSC! ^_^ that is after what they did with the pilot episode of BRS… maybe they got enough sales to do something like this… anyways, still awesome to know BRS is not cancelled yet!

    BRS is a nice character design IMHO. Didn’t plan to buy the static figure, but seeing more preview pictures of the figma makes me want to get that instead; I always like having interactions with the stuff I like.

    I will order Figmas and nendos, but in general I prefer scaled figures. Usually if there is a scaled figure, figma, and nendo available…I’ll only get the scaled figure. BUT there are exceptions where I can’t resist owning the scaled figure and the figma/nendo!

    Ordered both nendo and figma.

    WHO IS THIS GIRL??? I have a habit of looking up the charateur before buying any merch, but I can’t seem to find any info! all I know is that she’s super cute, that I will likely spend that check grandma gave me for christmas on both figma and nendo, and thats it.

    Will somone help me?

      I don’t know if she has a specific name but I know she is Black Rock Shooter. She is on First click in “Moetron subs Black Rock Shooter”. Then you will find a Japanese song and that video explains a lot. They also have a trailer.

    Oh holy mother fucker. I’m not a huge BRS fan, but even I can tell that figma is world endingly awesome!

    We have almost the same statement in our blogs regarding the pre-order.XDXD haha!

    I’ve ordered the nendoroid but I’ll pass on the figma.. though I’m really really tempted. If this would have an ActSta, I’d definitely get one.. but figmas are too small (and thin) for my taste. Sorry, I know you’re a figma fan. Yes, nendos are small but hey, at least they’re in chibi form.

    This is officially the first Figma I have ever ordered. But I know where I can get it cheaper. E-mail me to find out where.
