Young Ace November '11

To tell the truth, this is the first time I buy a Young Ace issue, and was only for the extra:

Young Ace November issue included a figure of Saber made by Kaiyodo and sculpted by Enoki Tomohide.

The figure is small (about 11 cm) and I really hate Tomohide previous works on Fate figures (revoltech and bust collection) because he sculpts the faces sorta chubby and with an excesive space between the eyes (like this one). Unexpectedly, this figure face is rather pleasant.

The questionable part of the figure is Caliburn; the hilt is badly bended and unpainted.

As for the magazine itself, I didn't follow any of the series so the only interesting part was the Fate/Zero chapter by Shinjiro:

I'm also buying next month issue (i. e. the issue released this month) because it will contain a Takeuchi drawn cheap clock featuring Saber, Iri and Illya:

Oh, so the clock actually comes with the magazine? I had assumed it was a mail-order item of some sort. Though I haven't bought Young Ace before, I've been tempted by the Fate/Zero extras they've been including lately. I might have to get the next issue for that clock.

Hi, thanks for the reviews. One question, how do you get your anime from Japan? I want to preorder Carnival Phantasm 3, but cdjapan is charging and additional 2000 yen fee without shipping, so Ive been thinking about using a proxy service to buy it from amazon jp. You can reply to my mail lwglass43@gmail, thanks for your time.
