Idolish7 ~King Pudding~ Ichiban Kuji Set!

Phew, my blog is finally back-up!

Philhosting pretty much screwed my blog over and didn't even bother helping me set up my DNS. Since I still own the .net domain of Heroine Complex, I'll just transfer it to GoDaddy. Having said this, for a while, I was debating as to whether or not I was still going to keep this blog. I was stressed as Philhosting didn't even have instructions and would ~sass~ me whenever I'd ask for help managing my DNS. "Ask Blogger for help" tf? 

Anyhoo, I decided that this blog is such an integral part of the HC brand. It's something I just can't dismiss or throw away. A lot of people look to my blog for my travels. I couldn't just let it go because of some domain problems. Hence, I took the plunge and got a new one! I'm so glad we're back-up and running again!

We'll be changing our blog design sometime within the year. For now, it's here to stay! I'm so relieved. ; u ;

Today, we'll be talking about the much anticipated Idolish7 ~King Pudding~ Ichiban Kuji! 

This was released last December. My supplier got into a bit of conflict as Japan had year-end  + New Year holidays, but we've managed to get them now. 

I'm so happy!

Everything is so colourful and vibrant within this set.

But first, if you'd like to purchase items from this set, feel free to visit our shop!

Let's get started!

The A-Prize is a 2017 calendar which contains illustrations from this line.

Now, would I say this is worth being an A-Prize? Hardly. I mean, to me, from all my experiences with kujis... an A-Prize is a bag or a huge plush. But is it pretty? Yes, in every sense of the word. If you love the illustrations from this set, then by all means, this is a wonderful addition to your collection. It's a good size and would look great on anyone's desk!

Now, we have the highlight(s) of this set! (At least in my opinion!): The Pudding Plushies! B-M Prizes!




I honest had to resist myself from getting anyone from this set! We sold out on the other characters easily! They're made of amazing quality and has a good size, too! Honestly, get your best boys soon because they are not going to stay in stock for long! Just the sheer cuteness is enough to get your heart pumping with love!

N-Prizes are clear file sets. There are 2 pieces in each set with different characters. The clear files are translucent with opaque printing. I love these especially Tenn and Riku's image together. Absolutely beautiful!

O-Prizes are rubber straps featuring King Pudding! These are absolutely beautiful. I'm personally attracted to vibrant colours and just hit right in the KOKORO! I recommend these straps to any fan. <3 If you can't commit to a single best boy yet, get yourself a strap of your favorites! They'll be happy to accompany you everywhere you go!

Last Prize is... a King Pudding Plush! What a wonderful way to end the set!

So how do you find this set, darling?

I'd give it a solid 4.5/5! Everything is worth your buck! These kujis are only available at selected convenient stores so please do try to get them before their aftermarket prices jump to an all time high!

Haikyuu!! Ichiban Kuji ~Karasuno Gakuen vs. Shiratorizawa Gakuen~ Set

I'm so sorry!

I accidentally published this entry without any text. I feel like I'm slowly letting this blog down, so I've decided to redo this entire entry and republish it on the succeeding week. Again, I apologize to any one who's seen the original post. I can get quite clumsy at times. Personally, I don't like how I get too caught up with something and neglect other aspects of my life. It's just not right nor acceptable, so I will work harder!

And, Happy New Year, everyone!

Shall we do amazing things again this year? I'd like to thank you all for the kindness and love you've shown me and HC. 2016 was such an amazing year filled with opportunities. I am truly, certainly blessed.

If you'd like to purchase this set, please visit our Facebook Page or our Storenvy!

Ah, the Last Prize (ironically, what we're starting with) is a tote bag along with straps of Ushijima and Tsukki. The design is quite simple for my liking. But at the end of the day, you're getting 2 straps along with it so it gets an acceptable grade from me! It's a horizontal shaped bag... honestly, I'm not too fond of bags like this. (Horizontal-wise, I mean.) They seem a little shallow and can easily be stolen from...? That's my opinion though, heh heh.

Bath towels for the A-F Prizes

I honestly despise selling towels... not because I don't like them. I actually do! But I've always been careful of our customers' preferences. Would customers legitimately like / buy this? I'm quite relieved whenever people purchase them as I always get scared that they won't! These towels are soft and the colours are vibrant which is rather unusual for bath towels from a kuji. With that said, I'd have a difficult time bathing in this because then >///////< 


G-Prizes are pin sets~ Karasuno vs. Shiratorizawa! These are quite a fun addition to the set! I love how they're presented in such a 'battle' themed way. 

H-Prizes are standard rubber straps featuring the Karasuno boys and (some of the) Shiratorizawa boys~ They're quite cute, aren't they? I just love Tendou's expression! <3 <3 <3 

I-Prizes are straps with our leading boys' quotes. Compared to the previous rubber strap collection, these are bigger (and not to mention cuter) with quotations beside them! I love how they just went all out and gave us 2 pieces of each character. Like, this is great especially for me, y'know? I mean, I want to keep a Kenma for myself but sometimes... well, no, not sometimes but I've got to sacrifice for the customers if they want him. It's only fair! So I'm glad that they gave us one of each. And they're quite kind to just put 1 of the Dateko boys. (Not to be rude or anything! They just hardly ever sell... I'm sorry, don't slice me.)

J-Prizes are quotation badges~ As if one set wasn't already enough, they just had to give us another pin set! This time around, you get quotation badges and a silhouette of our leading boys from each team. <3 They have the same packaging as the previous set BUT BUT BUT with an ultra cool and chic drawing. at the background and text. WOW WOW WOW. 

O-Prizes are, once again... rubber straps! And they went overboard this time, darlings! Why? Because we get plenty of Oikawas (5), Iwaizumis (4) and Akiteru (3)'s! <3 Just awesome! <3 Aoba Johsai wasn't the main forefront for this set. But fans get the awesome captain and co-captain of the series along with Tsukki's super adorable brother.

So, let's rate this set. I'd give it a 3.5/5. 

I'm not all too pleased with everything, but I can forgive it because we still get our favourites in the set. Somehow. However, if I were coming from a customer's perspective, I probably won't be all too crazy. To draw one ticket would most likely land you either a strap or a pin set. And are the items all to great to buy lots of tickets from? Honestly, no. Fans will still be able to enjoy and push their luck to try for their favourites out of fun. And if just like me, you like Haikyuu!! then you'd definitely still appreciate this set nonetheless even if you're not a fan of Shiratorizawa. 

Anyway, that's that for this short review!
