Character Corner: Ciel Items

Welcome to my new segment: Character Corner! (A replacement for Fan Friday?) Here, I will allow myself to nerd out over characters and series that I love/loved. I'll be offering reviews, advice, and personal reactions to various fandoms, characters, and artists. (Hopefully it will get me posting more as well!

Anyone who knows me can confirm that I am always madly in love with one anime character (at least) on a regular basis. However, there are certain characters that I hold so dear to my heart. The most important characters to me are Ciel Phantomhive (Kuroshitsuji) and Euphemia Li Brittania (Code Geass). I will most likely elaborate on this later, since the interworkings of my brain are pretty crazy weird.

Lately, I've been re-reading one of my all-time favorite manga Kuroshitsuji; thereby re-kindling my love and appreciation for Yana Toboso and especially Ciel as an entity and character. (Not the anime... its very hard for me to watch as I am so attached to the comic)

I don't know if anyone remembers quite how excited I was when I finally received my Ciel nendoroid (read; VERY EXCITED), but I've been looking into collecting more Ciel items (since there is an unfortunate lack of Euphemia items!!!). I recently came across some well-priced merch on well-known seller AmiAmi.

Static Arts: Lady Ciel 7240 JPY
That's a decent price for this rare figure!! I've been eyeing this figure for ages... I just love my traps.
Unfortunately, he's currently sold out at AmiAmi right now... I've put up a hunt for him at MyFigureCollection, but alas, no responses yet. Fingers crossed that someone is thinking about selling him or that he comes back in stock (somehow).

Ciel Plush 2980 JPY
Pretty good, considering I've seen this plushie for $60! I'm hoping that I'll find him at a con, so I'll hold off here for now. :) He's still in stock for those that are interested!!

Ciel Mini Doll 3360 JPY
Finally, a cute Ciel doll!! It's not for me as I'm saving up for a BJD, doll-wise. He's on back-order right now. :) Not particularly fond of this style for him, either.... however, if they made a Euphemia doll, I'd be all over it! 

That's it for today's Character Corner. :) Welcome to all my new followers!!! It's great to have you around. Let me know what you'd like to see!!
