The support post and base of the Nendoroid Petit aren't hard to put together o_o. Pop the small end on the figure, and the bigger end on the base?
What US law prevents the sale of Dengeki?? XS

IIRC, I think it had to deal with the characters looking underage or something. =|.

Sometimes the stands just don't want to fit in the back of the figure. I've had this problem with the Petites I have from the Vocaloid and first Death Note set; the two I have from the second Death Note sets fit very easily into their stands.

I had the same problem with the vocaloid petits (the hole on their backs was simply too small)
There's no use applying direct pressure on the post b/c you'll just end up breaking it. Instead try circle it around the hole (with a small pressure) until it fits in

Hm, makes sense, but can it really be called pr0n? I think that in pr0n you have to state that all involved persons are 18 or older; would Dengeki count as disregard for that law or just indecent exposure of underage girls?

(Speaking of which, why are high school girls so popular in bishoujo? It's so rare to see of age women in bishoujo, and even then they're more often than not extremely minor characters. I think that early 20s is a better riper age, not so young and innocent as at 16 )

A friend of mine mentioned to me today that unopened copies of the G's Festival issue with the Tenshi pillow cover are selling for $300 on eBay, so you may have the right idea here. By the same token, you're also helping exasperate the problem by artificially reducing supply.

...And there goes HLJ as a source.

What else do we have left now?

HobbySearch is where I'd go but they haven't listed anything about vol. 17 x.x'

So did I from HLJ.

Great, I'll be getting the Tenshi and the Yuri pillow in about the same time (end of next month)


Anyone who got DX Vol.6, what is the magazine like?
How many pages, all in colour, is it all about AB and nothing else, etc? Now that I'm getting one, I became curious

How do you like to use your dakimakura

Do you guys like to use it like a wallscroll of sorts? Or do you put it on a pillow?or...

I personally have Kanade [Tenshi] on my pillow right now.

Oh my god guys.

AmiAmi is charging me 3850 yen to ship the damn thing, and its only one copy, because of the wall scroll apparently...

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH THATS MORE THAN THE PRICE OF THE MAGAZINE ITSELF.

I'm pretty sure the wallscroll is folded into the box as well (check the pics), and it isn't larger than your usual Dengekis - probably just a bit heavier. If it contains two poles for the wallscroll, those must have been taken apart.
HLJ "only" put 1380yen (SAL) on it...


Photos of Dengeki Vol.17 in the store (from AkibaOS.com)

Spoiler for Photos:




I pin my pillows up on the wall. If it's double-sided, then I occasionaly turn it around to display the other side for a while.
