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.

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?

Episode 24: Heart Attack, Part 2

I was out of town on vacation last week (and stuck with poor wifi) so I was unable to review episode 23 on time. I’ve decided to write another joint review for two episodes so that I can catch up and be able to write one for episode 25 when it comes out, to keep things on a decent schedule.

Yoshikage Kira Just Wants to Live Quietly, Part 2

Yoshikage Kira’s secret has been exposed, and the one person to see it is none other than Shigechi. Kira can’t have anyone knowing what he does in his spare time continue to live, so it’s inevitable that he threatens to kill Shigechi immediately. Of course, to adhere to the JoJo trend for this arc, Kira has a Stand; he reveals it at the very end of the previous episode to anything but applause, but the reveal is essentially redone for episode 22.

Yoshikage Kira Just Wants to Live Quietly, Part 1

I’m trying out yet another format for this review, which is more traditional!

Yoshikage Kira is a strange man. He’s a good worker, and women are very interested in him, but he usually wants to keep to himself. Coworkers describe him as boring, but there has to be something more to his personality than desiring to work. After all, he’s appeared in several episodes (albeit briefly,) which should be proof enough that he has some importance in the Diamond is Unbreakable storyline.

The previous episode (which occurs after this one in the manga, if you recall) was gorgeously animated. An ‘off’ frame couldn’t be spotted, and the stained glass inspired spreads were phenomenal. Seeing that last week really pumped me up for this episode, since I knew this one was overall more important/significant to the plot and, well, why would the animation get worse after it was amazing?
