My goals on this site:

2. Paint GK's and make WIP/tutorial-articles of it!
3. Get better in photographing figures and make a lot of pictures!
4. Like most people here: Try to get as much figures from my wishlist.
5. Make lots of new friends! \^o^/

I like to write reviews and articles about figures, so be sure to check my blog on here: (mfc link)

I'm a MOD for club #1065, club #840, club #829 and club #965 So if you have any pictures or database items from Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, figures with wings, flowers or samurai that aren't linked, let me know! ^^

I'm also trying to sell quite some stuff (like games, anime-dvd's, manga, magazines and other merchandise). Take a look! (ext link) It's in Dutch, but you can look at the pictures and see the prices! xP I also ship internationally! If you only want to see the figures I'm selling right now, you can look here: (mfc link)

My blog, things I'm working on:
- My Elizabeth Mecha Musume Project (combining my figure and cosplay hobby)
- Multiple loot-posts and mini-reviews.

All my figure reviews and figure-related articles will be posted on this site: (mfc link) and all my cosplay-related articles here: (ext link)

Maakie (7 days ago) #2620182Thanks for approving! :)
Leek me handig om je hier ook in m'n vriendenlijst te hebben over eventueel overleg ook met de Dragon Ball cosplay! ^^
Ik zie trouwens dat je item #28305 hebt! Hoe is de quality daarvan? Ik vind de setup/pose echt superleuk er van, maar ben toch wel geschrokken van een paar foto's die ik er van zag! :x Is ze echt zo slecht?


Jaaa leuk! En graag gedaan hoor!
Ik vind de figure zelf best mooi, ik ken figures met slechtere paint jobs! Ze is sowieso niet heel groot dus als je van heel dichtbij kijkt valt het voornamelijk op. Ik heb haar voor een prikkie in Japan gescoord :)

Maakie (2 days ago) #2632618No problem! And awww, thank you, haha! Although if you follow my profile, you will probably see it getting a lot smaller soon. xD I collected way too much small stuff over the years. xD

yeah i want to sell some from my mangas too to get more animes and figures *_* xD

Maakie (2 days ago) #2632665Ahhh okay, so corn can only grow on your feet. Still nasty, though! xD I think I actually had that in the past from when I sported a lot more, on both of my big toes I got it, but I got rid of it by using these special band-aids (ext link) . I have no clue how those are called in English, but they have this special fluid that makes your skin softer and the corn (that is hard) go away. I remember it not hurting, but you could feel it being there. Now I'm getting doubt if it maybe was something else and not corn, hrmmm...
Ahh in the music classes I was in at high school we only had enough keyboards to keep everyone busy. You could only play another instrument if you brought it yourself... And yeah on top of a heavy backpack full of books I didn't feel like bringing a bassguitar with me full day. :P
And aww, that's so sad. :( But it's nice to hear that you cared about a teacher that much! ^^ I actually didn't really have teacher in high school or college where I bonded with, hrmmm. :/
Haha, you can imagine I'm really curious for some uncensored pictures. xD As far as I know there are no other mousepads like this!
I never heard of an electric water heater like that! It looks super fancy when I googled it! :O Is it typically American? The type you see in a lot of Dutch homes is this one: (ext link) which would translated be literally called water boilers. :P They are these throw-away things that cost like 15-20 euros and you mostly use for 5 years at most before they are completely used and dirty. xD
Oh and if pictures aren't too much of a bother I would like to see! :)
I can get really annoyed by altered images in anime. They actually went through the trouble of editing all the moving mouths out of that part of the anime...then they would have indeed been better off by cutting that minute or so out. -.-' One of my all-time favorite anime, YGO, was also hugely censored when it was showed here on TV. A lot of images in the series were altered and scripts of certain scenes were completely put out-of-context (if you're interested, I know a few videos where people put some differences side-by-side). When I saw the uncensored, Japanese version quite some years later a new world opened up to me, lol!
And oh man, I read about Jessica getting Sonico's role! I actually wrote a reply to that topic at work, but now see I forgot to post it, lol. Anyway, Sentai made this really weird choice, where it's pretty sure they just did it to have a big name to advertise with. I saw a few of Jessica's videos in the past (I don't follow her, but I sometimes come across stuff or people send me clips) and her voice is quite...hummm...adult? While Sonica has a squeeky-cutesy-voice?
I think a lot of illegal sites have this result, haha! When they keep public lists of which places to avoid, people will on purpose go there. xD

The thing we use is called corn remover or corn cushion. The most common brand for foot-related remedies is Dr Scholls, so people just call it that lol (ext link)

Oh, wow. My junior high school had a bigger instrument selection, but if you wanted to practice at home you had to go to a music store and rent an instrument (or buy one). So I never practiced at home 'cos that's too expensive! lol The high school had enough guitars for a class to practice, but not much else. I think the people with electric guitars/bass brought their own from home.

I think I was closer to the teachers in high school than the students. ^^; Even now I miss teachers more than my classmates lol

Nah, the water heaters are actually a Japanese electronic, much like rice cookers. (ext link) They filter the water clean as well as boiling it, but every 1-3 months you run a cleaning cycle with a packet of citric acid cleaner and it cleans any buildup out of the inner chamber. Zojirushi brand lasts very long. My friend has a Zojirushi rice cooker for 10+ years and still going, so I think as long as I care for my water boiler I can keep it for a long time. If it dies I'll surely replace it. It's so warm and convenient. :D

I can take some pictures of the mousepad and the tea set when they arrive :D

I hate censorships and alterations. Maybe you've seen the One Piece edits for the US broadcast?
(ext link) (ext link) (ext link) (ext link) I think if you can't show it as-is you shouldn't show it. Even Doraemon is going to be edited...

I think inevitably people at Sentai are going to realize they made a big mistake in letting JN voice Sonico simply because her voice doesn't fit. The question is if they're going to let her continue anyway. The answer unfortunately is most likely yes... Good thing I don't get into dubs too much, and I only watched one episode of Sonicomi just to say I did. :p

Hello, Maakie-san! I've made a simple tutorial. My blog is currently down for unknown reason, I don't know when it'll be active again, so I tried posting it in MFC. Feel free to check it. ^_^

Maakie (5 days ago) #2627578I got a quick question if you don't mind! ;D
Recently this Russian song was used in an anime:

And because I can't understand the song, I was wondering...how horrible are their accents? Is it cringe-worthy or pretty good actually? :P

Oh, I saw that! It's a very famous wartime song, one that everyone knows for sure since childhood ^^
The Japanese accent is there but not so horrible. It's just the [r]/[l] and [sh]/[sh'] sounds that are really hard for Japanese to pronounce without special phonetics training. I have to admit they did a surprisingly good job at singing this song.

Here's a wiki link if you're interested how the original sounds and translates as well as some historical background (ext link) (ext link)
