CNN9 Special Report

CNN? 9? Strongest? Why does that ring bell?

I heard Cirno encountered some passing by magician or something.

Hey! Convenient, someone asked to see a certain level 5 esper recently.

This is so totally not Gensokyo though.

Speaking of level 5′s I would like an Accelerator and Mugino figma.

Say, both Yuki and Aya said it was evening right? Sure looks like day to me.

Ah! I wonder who that tipster was.

What’s with that face Biri Biri? What where you looking at in that cellphone?

Ahem! Trying to subtly pretend that expression didn’t happen huh?

I am a Biri Biri fan. All thanks to the Sister’s arc in the Railgun manga. More on that latter though.

Gee, I wonder who would ask such a thing? I bet this fan already knows the answer though.

That reminds me, I anxiously await the figma of this fan.

Man, I can almost hear Aya snicker or something. Wonder why she is writting down her findings.

Indeed, I wonder how. Aya is the fastest so it must have escaped our eyes.

Hmm… wasn’t that interview a little on the short side?

Looks like the connection was lost.

Not a single word from you huh? Yuki.

Hey, I remember that. Huh? You are just moving on like that?

Wait? A fight like that is just a brawl?

Now an extra, behold my wonderful set up for these pictures!

This photo shoot was not without casualties. I lost one of Sakuya’s stickers, sigh. Also Aya fell from my desk and ended breaking a joint somehow. Luckily enough I have spares thanks to a previous broken figma.

One last thing, Aya has in my opinion one of the catchiest themes in Touhou.

  1. WAAAA~! You got Aya already. Uuu~ Uuu~… T_T
    That’s Aya for you, alright. Always looking at “different” angle. XD

    Cool diorama~! And the diffused lighting setup is something that I can note from. =D
    Also, the going-ons at the background is a nice touch.

    Me likey.

    • Yes, it was almost painful when people started posting theirs during the weekdays.

      It is, all my lightning knowledge comes from the tutorials at Happy Soda.

      Yeah, I thought that just having Biri Biri and Aya would be too boring.

  2. that great stuff !
    I wholeheartedly broke out in laughter, you had a very nice idea with Yuki as host and with Aya interviewing BiriBiri in a rather unconventionaly manner XD
    …even the figmas in the background are doing funny stuff
    also your setup looks very good, where did you get these trees ?

    thx for this nice story =)

    • Really? That just made my day.

      When I was thinking about this I just envisioned Yuki as the perfect host. Aya is Aya, if she interviews someone it has to be in an unorthodox manner.

      Those trees I found by chance when I went to look for props for this pictures in a local arts and crafts stores. Really cheap too less than $1USD a piece.

  3. Ahh, awesome interview! Aya is just how I imagined she’d be, full of win. I approve of the background story as well. Aya needs to go cover that BRS x Reimu fight btw.
    Nice lighting setup. I like how the diffused lamp reflected off the whiteboard makes a nice daylight look, will definitely have to try that one sometime. The sky and paper trees make for a surprisingly cute background as well.

    • She is, I find Aya to be one of the more fun characters in Touhou. No one has complained about the goings on the background so far. She should, she probably got out of that messy bit at the end just fine. Being the fastest and all.

      Using diffused lighting and a reflector has worked for pretty nicely for me, I find it more flexible than using a light box and so forth.

  4. This is great! I love figure stories like this :D I don’t quite have the patience to do them myself (DDs are easier for me because they’re bigger XD;;)

    And I think I started really liking Misaka during the Sisters Arc as well, if I recall. Initially I was blinded by love for Kuroko… XD;;

    • I love them too, it’s for things like such as this that I like figmas so much. I’m just lazy, too much work, and rarely do I think of something worthwhile. Those are the reasons I don’t do them often.

      Misaka was nice, I liked her enough after I watched Index. Then I read the Railgun manga and fell in love with her. Rarely does a character gets put through so much like she did.

  5. Aya fell? Noooooo. Then again, its a good thing you have spares all around there (unless her wings got clipped, then that’ll be a real bummer).

    Love your set-up btw

  6. Omg omg omg,
    This is so original! love the idea, and aya ftw! =)
    btw aya has to pull the shorts first no? or isnt misaka wearing any?
    i bet its blue and white stripes ^^ lol
    nice studio set, love the way you did the trees and skies haha oh and to make it more realistic, you should have photoshoped the holes at the back of the figmas. Great overall!

    • Cool, glad you liked it. You partially gave me the idea, I definitely wanted to do some “interview” using Aya. When you mentioned you wanted to see Biri Biri I thought she would be the perfect interviewee.

      Aya is really fast… and… you just gave me an idea. Yes, yes, I think I might do a follow up to this. Stripes huh… I think I can arrange that.
