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.

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.
