In today’s update: we catch up with the week’s figure news with several blockbuster release notes, including a new round of items from Megahouse (Air Gear’s Shimuka and Ringo, and Mizuki, a Tsukasa Jun-designed character that’s the spiritual successor to the infamous Sengoku Cannon Koyori), an all-Yukino trading figure set from Yakitate Japan, Haibane Renmei’s Rakka in PVC form (at long last), some nekkidness from Ikkitousen, and nekomimi from Toranoana in the misty far-off future.

August’s edition of Hobby Japan came out a couple of days ago, and it has some scoops that haven’t made it into the Hobbynet listings yet (though many of them have). I’ll try to get caught up with the rest in the next day or two.

What’s up with HD?

As Bilbo Baggins would say in response to the interrogation of a trio of hungry trolls, “lots! – no, none at all.” A flurry of posts every couple of weeks is hardly a good way to blog, and HD’s spotty posting pattern is going to change – hopefully in the very near term. We (and I use the term loosely) are currently hard at work on a major site reincarnation that is going to engage the full potential of our superlative adjectivial power and propel HD into the stratosphere of sheer coolness I firmly believe it can achieve, but such preparations take time. More details are coming soon, but until then please ascribe all posting delays to a big UNDER CONSTRUCTION sign.
