Since I’ve already written about how much I like Bakuman, this pre-order probably comes as no surprise. Bt Nendoroid pre-orders have been a lot more rare for me these days. It seems like most of the characters being made into nendoroids lately are repeats of common characters, or a character I don’t know at all. When it comes to nendoroids I usually need to have some connection to the characters in order to want to pre-order them more-so than with regular scaled figures. With figures I’m easily overcome by beauty and don’t care that I have no idea who the character is. Also if you include these two pre-orders my last 5 nendoroid orders were all men (Takagi, Mashiro, Ciel, Sebastian, and Neuro). My last female was Yako (Majin Tantei Nōgami Neuro). Well, I look forward to putting this duo next to my Light and L nendoroids.

A forum member posted about this manga series and recommended it with such enthusiasm that I started the series within a few days. To be honest, I was planning on staying away from any further series by this artist/author duo. Why? Well I read Death Note (their previous work as a team) and I’m one of those fans that wished it had ended at the halfway point. I thought that end point would have been A LOT better than where the series ended up. If you’ve read/seen Death Note you know exactly where I mean. But even though the series didn’t go in the direction I wanted it to…I can’t deny the obsessive hold it had over me for the first 7 volumes. So this recommendation from a fellow fan (and some bubbling curiosity about the extreme change in story genre from what Death Note was) pushed me to try their newest series.
