Since I've entered this wonderful world of collecting and financial ruin I've hit that point when all you want to do is indulge, I'm sure everyone else feels the same. But I've also hit a hard spot, a really selfish and frustrated one. I've been wanting figures/merchandise that doesn't even exist.


About a year ago or so I watched Ouran Highschool Host Club and fell in love with it! I'm not a big harem fan but that anime did it for me! So I've recently been on the hunt to add some of their things to my collection and come to find out there isn't a damn thing except for a GK! and petit PVC figures. Are you kidding me? Now the manga was very popular in Japan and even in North America, but still nothing. Not sure if it's because Haruhi is too boyish for bishoujo collectors or whatever but it's a shame. One anime that outraged me because I became obsessed with the female character: Devil Hunter Yohko! Another one with literally a couple of GK's and a couple misc merch that no one has any idea if they exist! Same goes with Eden of The East, extremely strong story line in my eyes, yet another anime doomed to only GK's! I have no problem with a GK but let's be honest, How many of us are talented in the painting and building of one? I've seen some built by individuals and they look amazing! But I know I'm terrible at such a thing.

But the anime that bothered me the most was Outlaw Star and it's lack of ANYTHING figure and merchandise wise. Literally, 3 things or so and once again GK's and one PVC figure. What the hell? Now I know that Outlaw Star had a huge reception in the 90's and early 2000's and we've got nothing. Of course I weigh in the facts of company approval for merchandise and the money to produce but honestly it's just a huge bummer.

I'm seeing a little bit of these problems with some of the newer animes I am currently watching such as MAGI. Figures have been produced and I own the petit set and have pre ordered Morgiana but Bandai no longer has the rights to their figuarts after prototypes were created?!?! I would hate to see such a well developed line go to the trash.

But that's just the way things are some times in this cruel world of collecting.

I've put together my own list of anime's that I'd love to see more figures/merchandise from:

1.Ouran Host
2.Eden of The East.
3.Future Diary.
4.Princess TuTu.
5.Outlaw Star.
6.Angel Sanctuary(ANYONE ELSE A FAN OF THE MANGA'S?!?)
7.Devil Hunter Yohko**
8.PROPER Gundam Wing character figures. PROPER!
9.Kimi Ni Todoke.
10.Gravitation.
11.(There's plenty of Kuroko figures coming out and ones that have been released but.) I need a Hanamiya Makoto figure ASAP.
12. MORE SYAORAN LI! Please.
What's yours?

1. KAGEROU PROJECT. KAGEROU PROJECT. KAGEROU PROJECT.
2. Diabolik Lovers
3. Dramatical Murder. I know Aoba has a few but what about every one else?
4. Kyoukai no Kanata
5. Some actual figures from K, not just trading ones
6. Kirito because all of his are baby figures and trading ones. He only has a few decently sized ones and they look terrible.
7. Danganronpa (the FIRST game), again non trading

I'd also really like to see some Matryoshka vocaloid figures.

darkrose (4 years ago) #2037531Agree with you for proper Gundam Wing figurines!!
Unfortunately Wing is not as popular in Japan as it is in Western


A friend of mine told me that. He visits Japan often and was told and saw that it isn't favored there. Such a shame. Amazing series!
