Up at the big 3, also on Amazon Japan here:

Total is 17.6k shipped, quite pricey. I don't think I need any more figures and I predict it'll drop.


Also comes with an alternative face:

Uhh, is that trailer 30 fps? It says 720p60 but it doesn't feel right.

Been trying to sell off my love live arcade controller for a while with no luck, maybe someone here is interested?

Quote from: me

iPad 32gb (third generation) w/ general wear, charging cable, original inserts, box, US version. Rooted and currently hooked up to the Japanese iOS store running iOS 7.

The controller uses Blutrol over Bluetooth and there's no lag whatsoever. The iPad is hooked up to the Japanese iOS store and everything has already been configured good to go. The controller is made out of high-res art on Sanwa buttons in an Arthong case. The controller can also be hooked up over USB to charge (side of the case). The iPad comes in its original box and everything that came with. Here's a video of it in action:

The button coordinates can be changed to anywhere on the screen so there should be no problem with future games, hell, this even works with Tokyo 7th Sisters.

I'm asking $350 shipped. This includes the iPad and controller. I am already selling this way under cost. I could sell separately, but you'd be on your own for setting it up with your own device.

Prefer selling together as everything is already set up and ready for the buyer, but selling separate is fine if you're okay with setting up the controller manually on another iOS/Android device.

I can also include a free Dekke Slope iPad stand, usually sold for $50

I also received the same email concerning one of my videos which I uploaded in 2008, of shiny smile.

Video in question

I don't live in the US and I don't really give a shit if anyone in the US can see my videos, so whatever. This is just another way of Youtube to charge customers for content which has been online and available for free for the past seven years. I don't think it's a good look.

I was going to preorder these, but since my PS3 sounds like a jet engine and I didn't even bother finishing the anime, I passed. And thank god, because they have received some heavy price drops already:

 TVアニメ アイドルマスター シンデレラガールズ G4U!パック VOL.4
[バンダイナムコゲームス]     定価¥10,778→売価¥3,680(税込)

TVアニメ アイドルマスター シンデレラガールズ G4U!パック VOL.2
[バンダイナムコゲームス]     定価¥10,778→売価¥3,980(税込)

TVアニメ アイドルマスター シンデレラガールズ G4U!パック VOL.1
[バンダイナムコゲームス]     定価¥9,698→売価¥2,400(税込)

Mind you, these are used prices, but still, if they're this cheap and the entire series isn't even released, it's probably a good idea to hold off and wait until the entire set is out before buying.

Other iM@S games / [Vita] iDOLM@STER Must Songs announced, 12/10 release

Official site:

Originally found here:

Red/blue versions with 40 songs each, 5700 each, digital versions also planned. Taiko no Tatsujin based. First print bonus includes a Vita theme.

She's $83.99 at Tokyo Otaku Mode, but first time buyers get free shipping, which I think is EMS, you can save about $30USD if you want her quickly:

I only ordered Makoto from this collection so far, but this one is so well done and captures her preciousness so well's tempting.


It's 90.99 USD which is 11,229 Yen "with free shipping" (read: included in the price) or 6,980 yen on Amiami, probably around 2800 EMS which is still lower than buying from TOM. Registered SAL should be under 2k yen.

Unless you(re absolutely dying to waste 1500-2000 yen for no reason, don't use Tokyo Otaku Mode.

I think Takane's base will change, it would be weird if it were different from the rest. It doesn't release until July, so there's plenty of time.

The same thing happens with other figures: (official shot) (actual product)

Dude, the forum was hella pink. Like, embarrassingly so.

Like, pink is one of my favorite colors and if I would be pained to log on to the old pink forums even if I do miss it.

I can't really say much about how different it was between now and then bc 1)I was like 13 and hella poor so I couldn't import anything at the time 2)I've been out of the fandom since like 2010? 2009? 3)Importing and crusading is how it is for my current fandom, so I have nothing to really compare it to haha

IIRC these forums basically stemmed away from GameFAQs, back in the day. I remember Kaminos posted about them there. (edit: yeah, I still keep in touch with HeartNana. Also pretty sure the forums were not originally pink, but they did completely die back in, I think 2009 and everyone had to re-register.

Technically I didn't import a 360 for the game, rather I found a J-360 locally. Since I've always been into shmups it was just pretty convenient to buy, especially because Senko no Ronde had been released (this was before the localization). Actually, I mostly used it for Bomberman Live, and I remember being in the Top 20 a bunch of times. I had easily over 100,000+ games and lots of free time. Vaguely remember downloading the iM@S (15? 30 sec?) trailers from the J-360 marketplace, back when the original 360 "blades" dashboard existed. I think this was 2007. Also gamerpics and stuff like that. I think this was before 720p hit YouTube and before 360 HDD disc installs. I eventually started seeking out merchandise like the original 360 Miki faceplate (haha, I can't even use this any more, since I upgraded to a slim J-360 unit) and Wedding Azusa. It doesn't really seem like it was that long ago.

Honestly, even though I bought 2 for 360, 2 for PS3 (regular, then eventually the LE and the entirety of G4U), I have a really soft spot for iM@S and L4U's character models and largely prefer them over 2/OFA onwards. There was just something unique about them which I don't really feel present within the other games. These models don't transition into art at all, either. I have issues with the fundamental design choices of 2, and OFA is relatively casual, but as far as I'm concerned the original iM@S and L4U fandisc were definitely something I spent a lot more time on by comparison.

Makoto painted:


And it seems like Azusa will come afterwards. Also, Phat's also going to be doing Anastasia from CG and Nanao Yuriko from ML.
