My Plushies

Ever since I was a little kid, I've always loved plushies. Teddy bears, puppets, stuffed animals, you name it! I would give them names, talk to them and... Uh... Make them talk to me... I'm a very imaginative kid, to put it lightly.

Plushies are also one of the most essential things in the otaku world. Many would kill to have these cute, soft, huggable versions of their favourite characters. Myself included... Okay, I probably wouldn't kill, but you know what I mean. Here, I'll show you some of my favourite (and ones that I was able to carry to this one spot from my bed) plushies.
Luka and MEIKO! It's nice to see MEIKO get plushified before Luka... But I definitely need a MEIKO figma and Nendoroid to complete the collection! Come on Max Factory and GSC... I'm waiting for my MEIKOs!

Apparently it's Yui's birthday on November 27th ^^; Oops! But I did take this picture on the 27th... Here she is as a part of the Bonkler group including Ayumu "Osaka" Kasuga and Fuko "Hitode Desu" Ibuki.

Here are some of the smaller ones (from left to right): Grunty (Puchiguso), Puchiko, Pyocola Analogue III, Polar Bear Rei, Kireihana, the dog from Harvest Moon, Winry Rockbell, Rafra and Yumi.

Puchiko is my favourite! She's definitely the cutest! Hokke-Mirin, the cat in her arm is a separate purchase. She is somewhat my conscience. She's almost like her anime rendition where she's got a somewhat mean streak, but she's like my voice of reason, like telling me to sleep when it's already 4:30 am... She is one of my favourites, so she's somewhat worn out, specifically her left eye... I wish there's a way to fix that =/

Kireihana is one of my favourite Pokemon and probably one of the first anime-related plushie I ever bought. I couldn't resist how cute she looks! The Harvest Moon dog is one of my newer plushies. I got that one when I bought Harvest Moon: Another Wonderful Life for the Game Boy Advance.

This is Rafra, a ferret from Infinite Ryvius. I watched that show by accident when I was trying to watch Jungle wa Itsumo Hare nochi Guu but copied the wrong file instead... However, I did enjoy the first 2 episodes enough that I bought the DVD box from Bandai which had this Rafra plushie included.

I still haven't opened this Rei yet... Her head's a bit too big to put anywhere probably ^^;

So why am I posting my plushies? Well that's because I'm incorporating my plushies into The Melancholy of Saber Lily 4koma :P This was planned for a while in my head as a continuation of Saber Lily and Mikuru arc. I apologize for some of the quality of the photos... I had bad lighting for some of the photos...

Hmm... What is Saber Lily saying that Mikuru is covering up by her yelling? And no, I'm not going to explain why Mikuru has a giant co... ferret for a ride.

Umm... Yeah, just to explain, that's supposed to be me who's suggesting the dolphin ride ^^; I suppose if you don't know what the dolphin is about... It's an inside joke at where we replace a certain appendage with the word "dolphin", lol.

These dolphin plushies are bought from Daiso at $2 each. I was only going to get one, but I liked both colours too much ^_^ They don't sell them anymore at the local Daiso, so I'm glad i got them.

This was the fastest title I ever came up with! I immediately laughed at "Grunty Style" considering what's happening in the comic! This has been happening in my mind over and over. Finally glad to finally put it down on file. Yumi's position of her hands just look perfect for this ^^; "Buhi" is the noise that a Grunty makes. I used to play .hack where they make this sound after every sentence they say. And yes, Grunties speak...

Here's another unopened plushie... But what kind of plushie is it?? :3 Whatever it is... It will be in the future 4koma ;)

That's it... Now close the door! I'm gonna be waxing the dolphin...


  1. What a nice collection of plushies! I feel so sad because I technically only have one plushie and it was a handmade gift from a friend. ^^;

    It's funny to see Saber Lily fawning over dolphins XD reminds me of my Nendo Kagamiku riding one. XDD

  2. I must be the only otaku heretic who doesn't care that much about plushies ^^;

    I lol'ed a lot at this strips, I think they're my favourites right after the yaoi ones XD

  3. While I am not a fan of character plushies, I do have many animal plushies, and many actually are still with me even though they are put in storage.

    Dolphins are also actually my favourites too, because the way they look as if they always have a natural smile on them. Though nowadays many people refer them with sexual innuendo always give me a huge sweat drop on my head... ;;;;;;

  4. @ninjovee: Ooh cool! A handmade plushie is great! Wait... You only have one?? And I have this many!? 0.o Haha, yes, Lily likes her blue dolphin ^w^

    @yakuri: Maybe I shouldn't have used those lines about needing to have one ^^; Hmm... So Mugi plushie is... ? :P Thanks, lol. These 3 particular ones been in my head for the longest time. I bought those dolphins almost a year ago!

    @Q: Oh yeah, it was the animal plushies that got to me. I had a caterpillar one that I had to leave behind in Jakarta. I asked about it later on and I was told it wasn't in a good shape anymore =/ Ah yes, dolphins do look like they're always smiling don't they? Haha no worries, I haven't heard many people still referring dolphins as sexual innuendos anymore... Just the folks who did remember it really. Now I wonder if I can make ferrets as a sexual innuendo after this...

  5. I can tell what that unopened plushie is...
    but I won't spoil it for your 4koma fans...
    if you pay me a bribe.

  6. @FatB: Hahaha I have nothing to bribe you with XD I'm sure some people have figured it out. It's more of a tease anyway :P

  7. So many sexual innuendos in this. ^ ^
    Anyways, lovely plushies! I want to get some too.

  8. Mugi plushie is an exception and special because she is both a present from you and MAI WAIFU. So she's special OM NOM NOM NOM delicious as well

  9. I too adore plushies.
    The Zetsubou-sensei and Otousan plushies are great to have around when DD photo-shoots:3 keeps good company too I think.

    and btw, even tho my username doesn't say so I'm Haku^^;

  10. @Yi: I guess my mind has always wandered that way, lol. Which kind of plushies would you get? :D

    @Yaku: Hehe, glad you enjoy eating her >:3

    @Haku: I'm pretty good at remembering other people's alternate name :) So I know, lol. Oh! Zetsubou-sensei plushie?? I didn't know there is such a thing! Zetsuboushita!
