  4. What, no snark about the "four-inch" reference?

  5. Wait... is that Ako from 'Mahou Sensei Negima'? The kid's got good taste in manga at least if he reads that one. True, it's got an overload of fanservice, but the characterization is great, it's got some hilarious moments, and it's got one of the tightest plots I've read.

    Of course, the kid probably wanted it for its overt fan-servicey nature, which is kinda wrong, but hey, if you put it up for sale, people are gonna buy it...

  6. That's actually Ryomou from Ikki Tousen (or uh...Battle Vixens, as Tokyopop thought that would be a good name). Yeah, it's just fanservice + fighting all tied together with some weird Three Kingdoms allegory.

  7. Nah, looks more like ikki-tousen or 'battle vixens'... I seriously hope his mom isn;t letting him read that...

  8. It gets funnier. That particular figure is topless, might explain why the photo was taken from behind.

  9. Sadly, that probably justifies why the kid was screaming at his mother to buy it for him.

  10. Stuff like that is why I buy my comics at a store that doesn't sell toys!

  11. Ah, teenage boys and their need for mostly-naked female action figures. Isn't puberty a beautiful thing?

  12. I'm a gentleman. I take my vinyl statues out for dinner before I remove their detachable clothing.

  13. @totz: Negima is a terrible comic for pedophiles.

  15. You should charge double that

  16. BOOBIES AM GROSS.

    What are all of you "GROSS" people 10 years old? At least the 10 year old that wanted the figurine has at least learned that girls aren't ICKY anymore.

  17. When I was a teenage boy I didn't know things like this existed... I was quite content with my collection of stuffed Muppets. Even though my mother never did by me Fozzy. Bitch.

  18. Man, that kid has balls. If I'd have asked my MOM to buy me a statue of a naked anime chick I'd only have to picture the face she'd have made at me back then that would have probably been enough to just not bother asking.
