Skoshbox Review November 2016

Skoshbox Review November 2016

Skoshbox had stated a few months ago that it would be forming a partnership with Tokyo Otaku Mode, but things wouldn’t really change much. Needless to say, I was kind of surprised when I saw how different November’s box looked from the previous ones. It’s still blue, but taller, resulting in a space above the snacks. This space isn’t necessarily a good thing, as it makes you feel like you’re not getting a whole lot in the box.

(Note: Sailor Moon isn’t included in this box, unfortunately. She’s just a little Prism Cafe Ochatomo figure I bought on Amazon a while ago. She’s very cute!)

Still, I’ll look past that and see how November’s selection holds up.

Minissimo vs Nendoroid comparison

Minissimo vs Nendoroid comparison

I have a few Nendoroids by Goodsmile, and I really enjoy them. Sure, they aren’t perfect as they consist of so many small parts, but they’re adorable! Needless to say, when Di Molto Bene announced their new line of mini figures modeled after Nendoroid, I was excited.

The first Minissimo figure, Josuke Higashikata, has arrived! I decided to take the opportunity to compare him to one of my Nendos to determine if he’s worth the price or not, and whether Di Molto Bene really ripped all of Goodsmile’s ideas.

Skoshbox Review October 2016

Skoshbox Review October 2016

I didn’t end up reviewing last month’s box because it was honestly very underwhelming, and I wasn’t particularly inspired to take the time to talk about it. The inclusion of another umeboshi candy and another sour cola gummy was unappealing to me, and there wasn’t anything in the box that was so great it made up for those two lackluster choices.

That being said, this month’s box is much better, so I’m happy to review it!

JoJo – Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 28 Review

Rohan hates Josuke THAT much.

JoJo – Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 28 Review

Highway Go Go (Highway Star), Part 1

Immediately, this episode begins where the dice game left off. Rohan, very suspicious of Josuke, leaves the table and promptly returns with a magnifying glass. Just what is he up to?

JoJo – Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 27 Review

JoJo – Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 27 Review

I’m an Alien

So, this is another one of those episodes that kind of hurts me, much like episode 21. It’s for the same reason, too; the animation is very inconsistent. When it’s good, it’s good; when it’s bad, it’s down right awful.

I’ve heard that this episode was outsourced to the same studio that did episode 21, and it really shows. I’m honestly beginning to feel like David Production is the opposite of Toei now, in terms of consistency. Remember how awful the first two seasons of Sailor Moon Crystal looked at times? Diamond is Unbreakable is getting to that point. Now, the thing is that David Production CAN really shine if they have the budget/time/motivation, I know they can, and Toei had to change up a decent amount of the staff to make Sailor Moon Crystal shine.

I honestly don’t know what’s going on with David Production. It’s probably just budgeting issues, but darn if it isn’t really obnoxiously annoying.
