Hey hey otome lovers! Are any of you Uta no Prince-sama fans? If you are, you might have recently heard that the new Uta no Prince-sama Debut Plushie series has released its first pair of characters – Ittoki Otoya and Tokiya Ichinose. Originally what attracted me to the series was the amazing music. I watched both of the series at once right after Uta no Prince-sama Maji Love 2000% finished earlier in the summer. So when I saw that a second line of plushies were released, I had to get Tokiya! He’s my favourite!!
I ordered my Tokiya from HobbySearch which is a really great site for anime related figures, plushies and merchandise. I’m really pleased with my overall purchase because the prices for Uta no Prince-sama plushies on North American sites are outrageously expensive.
When you buy from HobbySearch, the prices are closer to what I normally see in hobby stores in Japan. The only thing you might be slightly concerned about is the conversion from the Japanese yen to your home currency. The shipping is also super reasonable with HobbySearch. Everything is by weight; the plushie itself was 3000 yen and the shipping fee was only five dollars for me. However, if you order hard figures or nendoroids, that will definitely change due to the packaging and weight.
I’m a big plushie collector and I’m completely blown away by the detail that went into designing and creating Tokiya. His eyes are two shades of blue and the detail in his performance uniform is replicated so well from the art in the Uta no Prince-Sama Debut Game. It’s so princely and I like the design of the debut uniforms much more than the tassels and fur from the first line of Uta no Prince-Sama plushies. I’m currently trying to decide if I want to order Ittoki as well, or wait for Ren and the others >.< I can’t wait for the next pair of plushies to be released!
