A friend in an IRC channel (thanks topz) posted a link to this awesome video of Nagi-sama singing the Kannagi opening song, Motto Hade ni ne!, and I just had to share it ^^.
Apparently, the video was made by a new software application called Dance Mixer that allows you to create a character, customize her appearance, and then program her to dance to your imported songs ^^. There doesn’t appear to be a demo of the program available and it costs 15,980￥ so I haven’t had a chance to try it myself >_<
After watching the Kannagi anime and thoroughly enjoying it, I found myself looking for more of the lovely Nagi-sama. I discovered that there were already a few Nagi figures out and about. Wave, Kotobukiya, and FREEing all had their own Nagi figures available and an additional Clayz version is out later this month. Sadly, these Nagi figures all seemed to have something slightly off with them but I thought the FREEing version was the most appealing and I decided to place an order for her. Continue reading →
Yep, another Nendoroid acquisition :) I had forgotten I used Hobby Search to order my Kannagi Nagi-sama Nendoroid which means it was shipped with EMS and arrived sooner than I expected. Not that that is a bad thing, of course!
In between trying to force myself to watch Macross Frontier episodes, I started watching Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens. This series aired last fall so while it has been around a while, I’m really glad I got around watching it.
Two big boxes arrived yesterday and when I opened the first one, a Nagi greeted me! Sanzen’in Nagi from Hayate no Gotoku, that is. Yep, the cute little otaku was finally convinced by Hayate to leave her room and go to the pool. She even agreed to put on this cute, star-patterned swimsuit ^^;
Since it was the first sunny day after a week of raining, I decided to take Nagi outside for a little field trip. It was still a bit muddy but the grass was green and the dandelions (tanpopo) were all around. Read on for more pics!
This show is labeled as a “Love comedy” with a ridiculous premise of a high school boy, Hayate, whose parents rack up 150,000,000 yen of debt and then desert their son, leaving him to fend off the “とても親切な人たち” (Very Nice People) debt collectors… i.e. the yakuza trying to harvest and sell his organs. While running away, he meets a hot headed little rich girl, Nagi Sanzenin, alone in a park. While scheming a plan to kidnap and ransom her, he witnesses real kidnappers trying to capture Nagi and can’t resist chasing them off. Nagi, unware of Hayate’s plans, thanks him for saving her. As repayment, Hayate tells Nagi he wants her to “Go with him” and he “wants” her (for ransom). Continue reading →
