Yay, I love this contest. Smile

However, the figure shown is actually of Phryne, not Nessa. Wink

Happened to me too, but I entered again just to make sure, and it says "Sorry you have already entered this contest" so I guess it counts.

Boo, not the Good Smile Company figure.

Remind me again why these contests always come so late? I've already received the blu-ray in the mail and watched the first 5 episodes. I feel like the giveaways would mean more if they came several weeks before release - like YOU ARE GETTING IT FIRST! As opposed to "Here's something you probably already have if you were interested in / liked the show!"

/ blah blah blah, yes I'm being whiny.

Awesome I hope I win.

BTW, the Japanese limited edition discs came with Nendoroid Petits. Maybe FUNimation got some of those leftovers LOL.

Happened to me, as well. I didn't try submitting my data again, so hopefully the first submission was picked up. Based on bravetailor's post, I'm going to assume it was.

Just to be safe, try and submit it again. It can't hurt. Better to be safe than sorry, right?

Haven't seen this show, but the purple-haired girl looks pretty cute. Entered! ...Aaaand redirected to Funimation's page. Probably okay because this seems to happen to everyone.

It's supposed to redirect you. Anyway, where the winners from any of the previous contests notified?

Ah, yes, sorry. If you haven't been notified via email regarding Natsume, then you didn't win; sorry! All winners are notified by email.

Also, you're all correct; that is Phryne. I will make the correction. Thanks!

I wouldn't worry about it. The last giveaway contest took you to Funimation's site, too.

I really need to get around to composing an essay regarding my thoughts about Fractale. Hiroki Azuma really surprised me with how well he intertwined his theories from Otaku: Japan’s Database Animals together with Yeatsian ideals.

If you have not yet watched Fractale, I urge you to read Otaku: Japan’s Database Animals before you do. Doing so will give you the proper contextual background in which to understand the argument that Azuma is putting forth with Fractale.

By the way, that figurine is really the perfect gift for this contest. A fictional character named after a woman who became the archetypical model for statues of beautiful women in Ancient Greece is now being offered as an anime figurine.
How far away are we from the original at this point? Wink
