It's Working!! time Yamada! - Alter's Yamada Aoi

Man, I was gonna come up with a pun for the title but it was too much work.

Today we are taking a look at Alter's rendition of Yamda Aoi from the nice show that is Working!!.

I must say that Alter totally hit the jackpot with this one. Just from a glance I feel that Alter was able to capture the essence of the character quite well.

Just from a look you can easily tell Yamada is quite clumsy with the way she carries the menus and how everything is flying off the tray. You can see how she is oblivious to all of this with her happy expression.

She usually means well but tends to fail spectacularly in trying to do so.

I really like Yamada, her clumsiness, happy go lucky oblivious personality, and quirkiness makes her my favorite girl from Working!!

One thing I really like about Alter is how they tend to do less popular or more obscure characters instead of only going for whatever is popular at the time.

Alter being Alter did their thing and put really nice details even it Yamda is a simple figure. Detail such as the falling items on the tray.

As well as with the menus, that contain quite legible writing and nice looking pictures of some of the menu items.

Yamada's apron also contains a nice amount of details in the frills, the creases over her breasts and her training badge.

Which extends to the back with the nice bow and creases at the waist.

Yamada's stockings have the usual shine giving us a good look at your exemplary zettai ryouki.

Alter included an alternate look for Yamada with her hair clipped up. One thing I found interesting is that instead of an alternate head or so Alter merely included an alternate hair piece with the pony tail. You can swap them in a manner similar to how it is done with figmas.

While I can't remember ever seeing Yamada do her hair like that it sure raises her charm by 36%. Also, delicious nape if you are into that sort of thing.

The base is pretty simple, typical circular base with Yamada's name and the show title.

My wholly unbiased opinions says that Alter did a really good job on this figure and every one should go buy it.

How can you not if you like the show.

Plus Alter is so totally gonna make a set if you ask me. They released Yamada and announced a Poplar as well, I bet they do the other girls too.

Hmm... makes me wonder if I will end up getting them all. I really like the Working!! girls they are a fun.

Oh I wonder if there will also be a Kotori-chan one.

I almost forgot to mention but I think Alter did a nice job with the face. Looks exactly as in the show.

If haven't noticed I really like this figure. Quite happy Alter released a figure from Working!! and of my favorite girl no less.

It's been a while since I mentioned it so:

Flickr gallery with way more pics as always.

Also, you should totally subscribe to the rss feed and follow on twitter. It's been a long time since I seen anything new on those ends.

Alright then till next time.

Pre-order list: the OMG so much $$$ edition!

It's been a while since I done one of these.

Last time it was back on late June.


Ergh, so annoying I was so looking forward to have Yukari waiting for me at home after I came back from my business trip. Alas, she was delayed until the end of October, I hope there is no more delays for her.

Everybody watched Working!! right? Such a fun show, out of all the girls I must say Yamada is my favorite of the bunch. Such a fun character, Alter's rendition sure displays that.

Man, I was so hyped for this figma. I mean, it's Robocop, Robocop!

Much like with Phat's Yukari Robocop was delayed until the end of October.

This is odd, I been collecting figmas ever since their introduction a few years back. All of them have been exclusively girls, now though I want quite a few guys.

I look forward to getting Touma, been wanting to continue that CNN9 report I did back in February.

So, I know how people feel about Kirino and Kuroneko but what about Ayase?

I don't really like her but just look at those faces and cuffs, she is bound to be fun for pictures. Even more so with that unluky Touma figma I'm getting.


November can't come soon enough, I can't wait to get Homura my favorite Puella Magi.

Although, I must say, Homura needs more guns, no assault rifles? no light machine guns? Makes me a bit sad.

For a while Kuroko was my favorite Index girl. She is such a perv, I love it.

Sadly I gotta pay extra for her much like with Biri Biri and Misaka-imouto because of bundled in game. Still I look forward to use her on that CNN9 report continuation.


Earlier this year my lack of employment led me to miss out on this awesome Dizzy figure.

As a fan on Guilty Gear and Dizzy, I'm happy to have the chance to rectify that.

So I hear NISA might bring the BRS game to the west, including may be that special edition from Japan.

From that game comes this version of BRS. I think she looks quite cool with the wings and the more manageable cannon.

I'm getting all the other Index figmas so no surprised I'm getting Index herself right?

I'm curious to see how the use of cloth will turn out with her and the other figmas that make use of it.


Joining Madoka and Homura is Mami.

Was she always this busty? I really don't remember her being this busty on the show. Anyways, I'm quite happy with the selection of expressions for Mami.

We all have figures we wished we had bought, or had the chance to buy.

The original Alter Aigis was one such figure for me, so I quickly jumped at the chance of owning this figure. After all Aigis is my favorite girl from Persona 3.

People go about how this and that character is GAR or manly but none can compare to Guts.

Just look at him, Guts kills the type of things that are final bosses on a daily basis. You want manliness go for the guy that kills Eldrich abominations as if it was a walk in the park.


Sigh... this girl... out of all the Puella Magi she was the one with the design I liked the most. Too bad the rest was a lost cause. Still I look forward to owning her, too bad there is no expression to go for when she snapped before she died.


I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait for Ika Musume next year. Everything that makes her so awesome is well represented in this figma. Plus just look at the crying face of her, so darn cute.

So there you have it, biggest pre-order list I had up until now. It's only missing one figure, the Queen's Blade version of Noel Vermillion but her exclusiveness and high price is making me hesitate to commit to buy her.

So, anyone getting any these?
