Sinbad from Magi is another good looking manly anime guy reference: http://i.ytimg.com/vi/rlbieq1mImg/maxresdefault.jpg
Wow Eiji is looking goood! Best anime style male doll I've seen! But he's still a tad too feminine for my taste (while I'm sure many will love that BL look!) Personally I'd like to see him with a wider, more confident smile/grin and a bit thicker eyebrows. I think that would help making him more manly like Onizuka sensei :http://blog-imgs-36.fc2.com/z/e/r/zerokara345/gto002.jpg
No offense but I think she's too dark

Kenggantengen, kurang nggaplek XD
I love Solid Snake n Dante ll be looking forward to see them soon.
He's beautiful, kind of reminds me of a particular VN character I really like.
haaaa que HERMOSO yo quiero quiero uno haaa que triste sin dinero no hay Dollfie ToT
Ikuto from shugo chara
Nice to see a side-by-side comparison of all the current dolls...
Will there be emotional faces brought out for all the dolls? It'd be great to see some slight smiles, huge grins, and sad / worried faces.
I personally think his eye size is just fine, but would be interested in seeing the difference. Really hoping he comes with megane!
He looks gorgeous - I think the eyes look better on the grumpy version, but I prefer him smiling. So a combination of those two would be perfect!
I know a lot of people are suggesting bishounen characters like Sebastian as inspiration but I humbly ask that you keep Eiji's original character design in mind. I think it best that he looks gentle and friendly - characters like Sebastian have this smug, asshole faces that just wouldn't work for him I think.
Thank you for all you've done and I cant wait to see the end result.
He kind of looks like one of the guys from "Free!"
It's nice to see a doll with a little smile. There are already too many broody boy faces. Lets have a happy boy for a change
let him wear nice long coat ^.^v
Maybe it's the picture but she looks a bit purple.
Why so serious, son?
Omg I must have him!!!
That black hair...... with white skin...
The doll has my name ^^
She's gorgeous !!!
This looks infinitely better than the first mold test! I'm loving the improvement to the facial shape! I think the eyes are a wonderful size, not too big and not too small a very good balance, I hope you make them in more colours in the future! This is such an exciting development I can't wait to own one myself thank you for all your hard work!
For the faceup I suggest moving the double eyelid lines a little closer to the nose define the eyes more. Here is a good example of what I mean! https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8185/8390705545_01fac957dc_b.jpg
You could also add a subtle touch of darker blush near in the same area to define the brow line a little and make it look more masculine!

He's absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to purchase him!
I like the grumpy look tbh
that first dark brown wig isn't so bad, I think the shorter hair frames his face better.
If you put him with the girls he doesn't look girly.
Your doing a great job! I really want to see Solid Snake's inspired Smart Doll x3
I just want to see him smile without much makeup
Oh Sexys Dolls
Danny your is Like a Boss :D
What about a smirk? That seems like a nice medium between smiley and broody.
What about some inspiration from the Type-0 guys? :) It would be nice to see Eiji's uniform too ^^.
I think he looks fine the way he is but his torso looks weird. I don't think his eyes are too big. Please don't give him beady little eyes. His makeup looks fine to me.
What about a shiny amber eye color?
He is starting to look absolutely yummy! I might actually have to obtain him for my Mirai ;)
Is this the final face up?
That is hot!!
I would love to see a doll of Haruka Nanase from Free! He is my favorite character from that anime.
Will you be getting different hair colors later, like blue or pink?
I most hate the center one.It sooooo black!!!!!!!
Julisa pretty enough? :D
I love his physique. I hope you style him like in the illustrations, those were super cute! It would be nice to have bust (more like shoulders/back) and torso options. Just like a male vinyl anime doll is rare, so to are their back option parts.
Makoto Tachibana from free! Would be super nice for a licensed boy. But be way beefier on the back/shoulders area. *v*
I'm addicted to figurines and cosplay. Hoping to helm my own game development company someday.
Are those Rainier cherries I spot with the mentaiko? Quite a combo!
Yoko's hair is amazing! It would be much more difficult to recreate on a human scale.
Nia's eyes look really weird in real life, yet they're awesome in the anime. Some things should only stay in 2D. And I don't like the jewels, they're just metallic rocks, they should be clear resin or matte plastic IMO.
O-Omg why am I looking a Dolfies anyway, they creep me out but the cosplaying ones are just so pretty ugh I'm so weak
Always order your drinks without ice! It's kind of redundant since liquids usually are kept cold to preserve them.
Well, I think it's impressive they paid for all that. Anyone can amass a huge collection from downloading and the most you pay is for Internet/computer fees. Still can't knock down DC++ too much, it's pretty convenient IMO.
Yes we have fansubbers too. d^____^b
We should hold a "Calanimage" Summit one year and gather all the CA anime clubs together. I feel the anime club is becoming less relevant in the digital age and it'd be cool to have a mass anime club meeting.
You should come to UC Berkeley, Cal Animage Alpha is probably the oldest anime club in the West Coast (this year is our 20th anniversary, it's older than me!) and I'm an officer. Unfortunately we don't have a spiffy club room and we've been losing members because everyone downloads their shows now . . . trying to switch to a more social club, but it's mostly officers who participate in events, so maybe a talk by Mr. Choo will help things along? ;D
Anyone can join since we're a public university, so if you're in the East Bay area you should come to our showings (although personally I advocate Game Night, since it's much more social and you can interact with fellow officers) More info at http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~animage/ If you see me feel free to say hi and that you're a DC user. Sorry for the shameless plug. ^^
Banana chai siu!
Lady at the counter also gave me a machine gun concealed in a guitar case, not sure what was up with that.
MY FAVORITE MIKU SONG
I might actually consider getting it, since I totally have room for a photo frame. Smart space saving design. Now only to get $$$.
Long summary is long, but bear with me.
Mirai is an alien from a future dimension. She and her sister are orphans who were adopted by and work for a secret intergalactic police organization headed by a mysterious man (in white armor with black censored box on eyes, called "D.C.") and thus has special powers including costume changes, traveling though computers (how she comes to Earth in the first place), guns for weapondry, and her own personalized mecha-armor. They fight mindless alien monsters who destroyed their original home planet and target "high culture" races, an immune system of the universe against overdeveloped life. Anyway her younger sister disappears one day and Mirai tracks her down to modern day Japan.
She tries to assimilate herself into Japan to not attract attention (going to school, working part-time at maid cafe, etc.) and each initial chapter will highlight some new aspect of Japanese culture she tries to understand from an outsider's perspective. (People assume she's a gaijin, which she kinda of is. ^^) Because Japan is "high culture", it soon is under constant attack by mindless alien monsters that traveled from a rip in the space-time continuum (that Haruka first opened, and Mirai followed) and she ends up doing "magical girl save the world" work on the side. Japan becomes obsessed with their new heroine and ends up churning out unauthorized merchandise like figures, manga, etc., much to Mirai's chagrin who gets no royalties and suffers in a terrible shitty apartment, and discrimination for being a foreigner. But she finds herself fascinated with the country and not wanting to go back.
She finally finds Haruka, who had ran away from home for Japan because she's a total otaku (from watching anime on computer, which connects the two worlds) and doesn't want to go home. Haruka was also the one who created the "Miracle Mirai" franchise and is living the good life as an internet idol/blogger/otaku, and is getting ready to premiere the "Miracle Mirai" anime. However, this "Miracle Mirai" is actually fueling Japan's "high culture" status and attracting even more alien monsters, but Haruka refuses to stop and believes there's a way for culture and the universe to coexist, while Mirai wants her to stop and to come home. So Mirai and Haruka end up fighting against each other for a while.
Tons of space aliens swarm Earth the day before the anime premiere. Mirai and Haruka battle over the Tokyo Tower which is broadcasting it. Final battle ends up with D.C. turning the moon (yes, the moon) into a huge TV projector screen that shows the first episode of the "Miracle Mirai" anime, and all the mindless space aliens fall in love and become otaku themselves, and move to Japan (taking jobs as Godzilla, sentai shows, anime characters, etc.) Mirai realizes she loves Japan as well despite everything, and decides to stay with Haruka on Earth now that the universe is safe again.
Ends with D.C. teleporting to another dimension and starting an otaku website with Mirai and Haruka as the mascots . . . lol
Pretty cliche, but it's short with no need for extraneous characters or milquetoast love interests, and it could be adapted into an OVA if there's an anime. Plus, it highlights the mascots while providing a medium for highlighting Japanese culture, which is the main purpose of the site.
Why did you have to announce this contest during Spring Break?? All my figures + really nerdy things are back in my college apartment . . .
I'll put up a photo of my room at home later tomorrow when the lighting is good, it's still pretty nerdy if a little outdated lol.
Shokotan I love you. This is the greatest thing ever.
Okay, I admit the Kino cocoon is cute.
And, um, are your Dolfies "hiding" anything if they use the Tenga as "playthings"? As if Dolfies couldn't get any creepier. XD
Love Kagami in the Tachikoma. Reminds me of Kemeko!
. . . the wasabi is in a terrible position underneath Mikuru, it looks like ________.
It's a real life Kei from Moyashimon, lol.
Wow this is amazing. I'm curious though, do they consider her Hatsune Miku or an original character?
Favorite Hatsune Miku song is still "World is Mine", would love to see a figure of her in that + Kaito. ^^
Shokotan is in the Doraemon clip's panel, ha ha.
And Astroboy/Atom is pretty accurate, actually . . .
I've been almost everywhere you have been (born in Vancouver, visited Seattle/Grand Canyon/Las Vegas/China, live in LA, college in Bay Area . . .) Still haven't visited Japan or Europe though. Aiming to go there + Egypt within the next 5 years. Wish me luck!
Also this article makes me worry about getting a job when I graduate next year, wish the economy wasn't so shitty and unpredictable. Maybe I should do Peace Corps or JET - kill two birds with one stone.
LOL I love Kanon. <3
And maybe I should invest in a humidifier, my lips and skin dry out during winter, and I have to wear too much Chapstick and drink too much water.
More gym uniform Kyou hell yeah!
Although that last one . . . that apple is so inaccurate.
Oh, that's cool. I was just surprised to see a fellow Berkeley student on DC. You should come to Game Night on Thursdays, it's a lot more social and interactive than just attending the showings.
WHOA sorry for the off-topic but are you also a Cal student? If so, are you in CAA?
