Nozomi Watase, Tony Taka, and more...
19 Nov 2009 01:03:18

I was actually going to add Mirim first (my more recent purchase), but for some reason I can't get into the manufacturer's page (MegaHouse). Since I just pre-ordered another figure based on Tony Taka's drawing, this one seemed like a fair choice.

Nozomi Watase Red Wine Version



The character came from a 18+ game called Shinshou Genmukan (I actually had to look that up!), but what makes the character attractive is that it's drawn by Tony Taka. Some people I've known call him "The B-Class Legend", a joke referring to his continued association with B-Class games, despite his stunning drawing styles.

I initially had no idea how I would get this figure, so when the call for the regular version's pre-order came out, I promptly forgot about it (I also didn't like the regular version's colouring that much). After a long while, I was looking into buying another one of his figure, and stumbled upon Native's homepage, and there it was, in its glorious new colouring, released not too long ago.

I decided at that point to check E-Bay...and came across a fairly decent deal for it. I promptly forgot about the figure I was checking upon, and decided to buy this instead. So far, I must say I'm quite happy about that decision, because the figure looks absolutely gorgeous and is a feast to my eyes.

Even the box it came with is stylish.





I took out my camera to take those three pictures, so I felt it'd be a waste not to take some more pictures of the figure itself. So here are some of them.








And two NSFW pictures that I thought were nicely taken.

PS: Found out yesterday night that AmiAmi has an English section now - so I won't have to get robbed blind by Hobby Search anymore. I probably could've saved more if I found out earlier, but I'm not about to complain :)

Delightful figure!

I'm not sure, but I think it's the first time I'm watching Native figure that closely. Not bad.. not bad at all :) Btw, does she stand without anchors?

Photos are quite good as well. May be not a masterpiece, but accurate and clear. Now when Nozomi has been added to our data, you can identify some of your photos (if you like). Thus you will bind them to the figurine. Maybe one day 'shelf' become popular, and someone would be looking for pics of her bla-bla-bla... My favorite pic is NSFW #1 ^^

I wish she could, but no. Slightly unbalanced to her left.

The camera auto-focuses, so I just take bunch of snapshots in same angle and cross my fingers. You can imagine how many photos I had to take to get those out :). I'm thinking of finding myself a camera with manual focus, so I don't have to do that.

And yeah, I think I'll wait until the figures I added are in database before I start writing about them, so I can identify photos I upload. It'll be much more convenient that way.

Hm, kinda strange design. No offense, but it looks like she was placed that way by the owner. Ah... but she's charming no matter what :)

Digital SLR cameras are perfect for that stuff, but they can be outrageously expensive.

Yes, it's better the way you described. The service is temporally pre-moderated, cause I don't have a team of assistants on constant stand-by. And well... I think it should be a mistake, because our database already includes Akashiya Moka figurine. I even think I noticed her on your shelf ^_^

Poor girl! Why should she stand undressed in front of everyone?? That's why I can't say I like such figures :P

Hmm... I see you have 2 monitors and Wacom! Are you a designer? :P

Actually, I'm a programmer. Having two monitors while coding a fair-sized program is a god-send :D

The Wacom tablet is a relic of my foolishness :/ I got envious of people around me drawing well and wanted to try it for myself, but gave up after a bit. The catching up I need to do is way too much for me :(

Wow! What programming languages do you know?

I have wacom too (to tell the truth, it was a gift from one of our friends to my girlfriend, but she doesn't use it)... and when I started to learn Photoshop, all what I actually managed to get - was 'how to cut something from picture with vectors' skill :D

Most of my programming these days are off of C and C++. I did a bit of Pascal and Java a long time ago, and I dabbed a bit on bunch of other languages as well :D
