  16. Happy Thanksgiving~!

    I first heard of the series before the anime was announced, when I saw a blog post with the original jp release manga and saw the covers. Beautiful, sparkly covers. I checked out the series right away and fell in love. I’m behind with the manga but absolutely adored the anime. Sadly I couldn’t fit Phos in my preorders but the figure ended up looking even better than the prototype. Aboslutely gorgeous, loved the review! Now I’m even more in love with the figure. (*´ω`*)

    Would love to see Good Smile make a Nendoroid but as the warning in the instruction says, the hair part is delicate — Nendoroid heads are big and could lead to scratching because they can fall so easily. Yet I’d still like they make one at least.

    Reply
    • Yeah, I’m not sure they could use this same technique on a Nendoroid. The instructions warn not to touch the hair at all, because it could damage the special paint on the translucent PVC. But maybe they could find a new method to recreate this stunning look in Nendoroid form? Would be great if they could!

      Reply
  17. Wow, this figure looks great from your footage! I actually wasn’t entirely sure how good it would look just from the promo images but you definitely showed off the finer details!

    Reply
  18. Happy Thanksgiving everyone 🙂

    Reply
  19. Waiting patiently for the release of the Antarcticite figure. Phos looks great, but I’m not a fan of her early characterization. I hope Antarc and Phos do well enough for at least Diamond to get a figure.

    Reply
  20. Houseki no Kuni Phos was a good anime and i hope i get this prize.

    Reply
  21. Wow now thats a figure worth having. That magnificent hair tho. Just Beautiful

    Reply
  22. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

    This show is definitely on my watch list.
    The figure itself has a real dynamic pose I absolutely love and the semi transparent materials make it so interesting. This seems like a figure that would be delightful to experiment with lighting.

    Reply
  23. Wow! Phos looks really nice here. Loving the pose and colours. Fingers crossed for this figure (and another season for the anime)!

    Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!

    Reply
  24. I don’t know, this design give me conflicting feelings, but I can’t pin point exactly what they are

    Reply
  25. Read the manga, and the anime surely did it justice. Phos looks so dainty, but graceful. The base looks pearlescent in a way. Looks real good regardless.

    Reply
    • I was tempted to pick up the manga after the anime ended, but I wanted to wait and see if we’d get another season first.

  26. This anime is truly a hidden gem the competent use of CG was just a bonus.

    Reply
  27. It’s probably the first CG anime I’ve liked so far

    Reply
  28. The best CG anime so far. It’s not only visually aesthetic but it also has a very deep and emotional plot. I love the show and I hope they make a season two of the series

    Reply
  29. Wow, it would be fantastic to have this figure, I hope to be lucky

    Reply
  30. Adding Houseki no Kuni to my watch list.) Can we have an anime review series with Lindsay as a host?

    Reply
  31. i hope land of lustrous and steven universe do a crossover episode

    Reply
    • Now that would be really cool to see!

      Reply
  32. Awesome figure. Btw can you guys do figma for your next vid. Thx

    Reply
  33. ‘Steven Universe’ also has Gems. They’re all female.

    As for competent use of CG, there’s certainly a balance to strike — and Rooster Teeth Animation has been getting better with their CH animated series as they go. Changes in their engines haven’t been the only things marking improvements either, as their animators just keep getting better. See ‘RWBY’ and their upcoming mecha series, ‘gen:LOCK.’

  37. Found out about this show through some memes I found while looking about the net, once I figured out what show it was I had to give it a go. I loved every moment of the show and I’m looking forward to the release of it’s English dub, so I may enjoy it once more!

  38. Houseki no Kuni was fantastic, i’m waiting for more of this, in the meantime, i will tryhard for this figure.

    Reply
  39. The same i said for previous figures. I NEED IT IN MY LIFE!

    Reply
  40. Watching Houseki no Kuni has quite literally changed my life and my entire perspective of the world. There are so many subtle nuances and details that really resonate with my Buddhist background that I really appreciate Ichikawa’s stunning work! Hope I can win a Genki Phos!

  41. I know nothing about this anime, but the character designs really give you that “ethereal” feel. Good Smile did a great job translating that to figure form.

    Reply
  42. I hope they make figures of all of the main gems, mainly Bort, Dia and Cinnabar

    Reply
    • Oh man, I’d love to see those three made into figures, especially Dia

      Reply
  43. Those are some pretty amazing colors and design, pretty nice figure

  44. A friend got me into Houseki, she’d loooooove it so much.
    Btw, the manga isnt over either.

    Reply
    • That’s great to hear, I hope the anime will continue into a 2nd or even 3rd season!

      Reply
  45. Anything ?
    😀
    Its soooo stunning but I am afraid that its too delicate !!
    but thats our naive air head from the start of the show I guess <3

  53. The clear plastic looks so good in this figure

  54. Watched this on Amazon Prime Video a while ago. Didn’t know it hasn’t ended yet.

  55. I liked this anime, but I didn’t love it… That being said, this figure / statue is beautiful. It manages to capture the character and the anime’s overall aesthetic, pretty spot on!

    Reply
  56. This looks like another anime I must look into. Thank you for the introduction, Lindsay.
    And I have never seen this type of figure before.

    Reply
  57. Phos looks really gorgeous in hand and gives me hope Antarcticite will come out just as beautiful.

    I definitely think as time moves forward and the medium evolves CGI will continue proving itself a valid tool. It obviously can’t do everything yet and still has some issues but the same could be said of 2D animation. Before all these techniques were developed over time it could look pretty clunky. Does anyone remember how bad digital coloring was back when it first started being used?

    Reply
  58. lol, I know people who worked on Dragon Prince

    Reply
  59. Well never heard of this before, but I have to say how lovely this looks. I love the use of translucents mixed with the almost pearl white.

    Reply
  60. Another awesome review of Phos. Thank you.

  61. We’ll never heard of this before, but I have to say how lovely this looks. I love the use of translucents mixed with the almost pearl white.

  63. Nice figure 🙂

  64. Figure looks great! First competition in a while I enter 😀

    Reply
  65. Super cool figure, I watched the show and read the manga and I fell in love with the story and the design of the characters, and also the meaning behind the story and the many references to Hinduism, and other oriental religions as well I believe. Really one of the best stories I lately discovered. I never really had a big intrest in those kind of competitions as I am kind of unlucky but I will try since knowing and understanding this character really changed me.
    Have a nice day everyone!

  71. OMG I would absolutely love to win Phos, she has to be one of my favourite anime characters in recent years, I mean the growth she goes through in just 12 episodes is insane, I really hope they continue with a season 2 so we can see the rest of her story. This figure too really is a work of art, If I don’t win I might just have to save up and get Phos for myself.

  72. Just like Lindsey, a rare stone to gaze upon 😉

  82. Nice Phos figure!

    Reply
  83. “I will refer to her as ‘her'” — thank you. I appreciate common sense even when talking about philosophical post-apocalyptic anime.

    Reply
  84. This show’s premise sounds unique and interesting; wouldn’t have discovered it if not for this review. I like “her” pose, design and materials, especially for the hair and the arm shards. Nice presentation!

    Reply
  85. I work in a library, and am currently making a viscous attempt to convince the higherups to get the series, as they only have the first three books. I will do my very best.
    Additionally, the pose Phos is in looks very complicated and the balance must be tricky. Gotta hand it to the makers, they really did a good job!

  86. so sad I didnt win the monsters inc

  87. I see that Goblin Slayer is getting a figure release, now if only my luck holds we may see slime from Reincarnated as Slime and even a Skull Face Book Seller.

  88. Land if the Lustrous has to be my fav anime to date, the suffering in it keeps me alive and on my toes

    Reply
  89. I love this series so much, it’s such a unique and beautiful way of using CGI in anime! <3 Would love to add the Phos figure to my collection as well~

    Reply
  90. Phos looks so much better than I thought they would after seeing the initial photos from Goodsmile! That hair is absolutely stunning!!! Makes me want to up my cosplay game and touch up my Houseki no Kuni wigs~ I can’t wait for the Antarc figure (and hopefully more in the future)

    Reply
  91. Really sad how the anime just stopped halfway. So many unresolved plots. Gotta read the manga I suppose.

    Reply
  92. When I first saw the Anime, I was completely speechless. The graphics, the voice actors behind each character, the plot, everything was beautiful.

    I was kind of disappointed when I saw how the Anime ended, but it made me want to read the Manga, and I absolutely don’t regret it!! I won’t say anything related to the Manga to avoid any spoilers, but I’m highly hyped to see the season 2 as an Anime and see how it turns out. 🙂

    Reply
  93. Oh man, I loved this show, it’s my favorite series right now. Following the manga updates and just seeing everything go downhill feels like your chest getting hit with a brick.

    The figure also looks soo pretty! >_< It's something I'd love to have admittedly T~T Guess I can hope…

  94. cool character designs
