as fans of arland seris I happy to see rorona become loli/child but I curious the reason behind that,to know the reason we must play the game but I don’t understand the japanese text,well I understand only little so I wait for the english version released and that still long,but thank to GLAY8492G’s, now I know the reason and he Upload the video on youtube :
and here the video :
you already watched the video ??? here the point that I understand :
Totori shocked because her teacher become child,she explain to meruru that this child indeed her teacher,astrid explain that the reason why astrid and lolona so young because she made the elixir of youth( I called it :p)
here the more detail explaination by astrid,she say she made the elixir of youth so rorona and her look more younger and at least she want to see 14 year’s old rorona but because some accident or unknown reason rorona become 8 year loli :p
meruru ask why astrid do that and here the answer,WHO WOULD WANT SEE OLD RORONA at least I don’t want to see it,so I made the elixir of youth so rorona will become 14 years old because that the most cute form ~( is this astrid reason or gust staff reason :P)
the rest of video is explain to make lolona normal astrid need time and she want totori and meruru take care of lolona when she made the medicine also the introducing hom-kun and hom-chan as assistant of meruru etc
so now we know the reason,damm astrid I want that elixir of youth 😛

well in figure we often hear about PVC,resin,Abs etc, like this figure made from PVC material or This is Resin figure,figma made from soft PVC etc,here the explanation about that I found on Google 😛
Basically, no heat is applied when the material is set in the mould. By mixing two types of liquids, a tough plastic compound is formed. It is the most expensive type of material for figure. Nicer and more live color compare to PVC.
Polystone is the common name for Polyethylene, just another plastic. But there are two main types, High and Low Density. High density is used for the figurines. Polystone offers good resistance to moisture, impact, heat, sunlight, cold and has good rigidity. I mean good compared to PVC. Everything here is compared to PVC.
Polystone distorts of about 80 degrees Celsius. It is not that ductile, lighter than water, and can be moulded, machined, and joined together using welding (difficult to glue). Itâ€™s a thermoplastic as well, meaning it can be heated and reshaped and cooled. This is easy to mould and rather durable. The higher heat resistance and rigidity also means figurines do not lean or distort, or worse, start degrading in sunlight. But for this added quality, polystone figurines are more expensive than PVC ones and the selection is a lot less.
Unlike PVC which is more ductile, Polystone does BREAK because of the higher rigidity. So shipping overseas is a bit more of a risk for these. Use EMS at all costs.
And yes, itâ€™s also known as polyethene, the plastic bag. So people who have been fooled by the fancy name, please hang your head in shame.
Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC)
PVC is one of the most common plastics used in the world. Itâ€™s quite similar to rubber and the toughness/malleability of PVC is dependant on the plastisers added. More plastisers = more softness, since they straighten out neatly the long macromolecular polymer chains into neat rows. Some figure collectors complain of an oily film after a while and I would think this is due to the plasticisers migrating to the surface of the plastic. Small plasticiser molecules are pretty mobile and after a period of time, they accumulate on the surface to produce a oily crud.
This is also why PVC tends to get a bit crappy and brittle after a long time. Oh yeah these plasticisers are quite toxic too. And if you have a fire at home, dump your figurines at them to extinguish it, since the chlorine produced retards the flame. Btw, some plasticisers are thought to reduce the quality of MAN SPERM.
A very large percentage of the figures sold are made of PVC. From gashapon, trading figures to 1/6s, these are mainly PVCs. Cheap material cost, easy of moulding, ductility (it wonâ€™t break much, just bend) are the reasons why it is used.
Never leave them in the sun. Ultraviolet rays produce free radicals on PVC, chlorine free radicals, that combine to form chlorine gas and the material is decomposed. The sun also heats them up and PVC distorts at a temperature of 60 degrees Celsius. Being a thermoplastic, you can actually heat it up and bend it, then cool for it to maintain that shape.
PVC, due to the addition of chlorine atoms which have a pretty high molecular mass compared to C and H, is heavy for a plastic.
ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)
ABS is commonly used for the bases of figurines. Itâ€™s pretty recognisable, just think of LEGO blocks. Thatâ€™s what they are made of. ABS has good impact strength and is not really flexible but rather stiff. These properties plus the glossy surface make it a suitable material for figurine bases. Interestingly, unlike all the above, ABS is not a compound but just a blend of 3 types of plastic.
“ABS is an amorphous thermoplastic blend. The recipe is 15-35% acrylnitrile, 5-30% butadiene and 40-60% styrene. Depending on the blend different properties can be achieved.
Acrylnitrile contributes with thermal and chemical resistence, and the rubberlike butadiene gives ductility and impact strength. Styrene gives the glossy surface and makes the material easily machinable and less expensive.” -Designinsite
ABS is more expensive than PVC and is slightly lighter too. Its price is commonly used as the dividing line between common plastics like PVC and more expensive industrial plastics. ABS has a higher distortion temperature at 75 degrees. Its properties are also easily modified by varying the proportions of its components. Its natural colour is an opaque ivory but dyes can be applied.
Every day leading up to the game’s June 23 release,gust will update the site with new content,be sure to visit here http://atelier-ps3.jp/meruru/cdfes/ everyday so you will get the latest news about meruru 😀
here the first video show about meruru want to become alchemist and introduction to meruru world :
second video,lets you build up the game world. This video provides an introduction to the system, with textual commentary from director Yoshito Okamura.
you can find a meruru app for iphone,gust made it to promoting Atelier Meruru, due for PlayStation 3 release on June 23
The app allows you to interact with main character Meruru, who will react with various actions, shown via Live2D animation. There’s also a timer feature, complete with voice-based time alerts from Meruru herself
you can download atelier meruru app in here : http://itunes.apple.com/jp/app/id440229844?mt=8
a Opening video from BRS the game for PSP,is look awesome too bad I don’t have PSP hahaha 😀
for anyone who already pre-order I think you will not regret it ~
well I am die for this last 2 month,too lazy for update and busy with something.
I planning on 8 figure review that I pre-order :
- figma kos-mos,
- figma miku append
- Rin 1/7 ubw PVC,
- nendoroid snow miku play time edition,
- nendoroid madoka
- nendoroid kawashima minami,
- nendoroid totori,
- 1/7 triela PVC
and that maybe the last list figure I buy this year 2011,because I want to buy android smartphone maybe from samsung or HTC 😀
I am not rich so I happy that I already PO all the figure and I hope I can give a nice review to all of you who visit this blog and maybe I will review some old figure hahaha 😛
soo see you again ~
