Sahra Nostalgic Story Collection DS ver., Azone Doll Box Opening and Review (with video)

En français
This is the first video of the kind since the move so it's pretty exciting. I decided to start reviewing again, since I finished to install all my Azone dolls on their shelves yesterday afternoon as you might have seen on my facebook page.
I'm very happy with the new shelves organisation as I have all my Sahra's a la mode dolls on one shelves for themselves so I can just add more of them there instead of always wondering where to put my new dolls.
Today, I'm reviewing Sahra from the Nostalgic Story Collection series. She is the doll show limited version. I decided to get her because I love her hair color and also because if I ever want them all, the Doll Show limited is definitely going to be one of the harder to get. So it was better to grab her while I could.
She is dressed all in white in a sort of Gothic, medieval dress, top and over skirt. She also comes with an awesome Gothic style background. The Nostalgic story collection is the first Series of Sahra's a la mode made by azone, before the dolls would come out in pair with different style. Back in 2012 when this series was created, there was no Yuzuha yet so despite having 10 dolls, we only have Maya (3), Sahra (2), Alisa (3) and Lycee (2).

 Here is the video:

Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 114

Welcome to a new part of Vampire Heart unedited. Have you been bitten yet?
Sign up to be part of our awesome Vampire Friday blog hop team! You know you want to!

Summary of the previous episodes: Viorel has been tortured by his supposed family who wanted to have him burn in the sun. Strangely enough the sun didn't burn him as expected but Viorel has no memory of who he is. Following the advises of his supposed father, he left Sighișoara and is now traveling to the West. After some skirmish in a previous city, he found refuge on a boat. Viorel is now in Vienna. The little problem is that the guy at the inn was a bit of an asshole and helped capture Viorel thinking he was a vampire, which he is but nobody needs to know. Now there is a huge man (which I call the colossi) taking care of Viorel and a priest. They brought a girl. Torture my holy water... Fail. Viorel managed to confuse everyone, now he would like to get out of here. But the girl seems pretty useless. They still managed to escape and he left the girl to the care of the boat lady before going back to have two words with his captors but his power of persuasion were failing him. The priest wanted to crack a deal but Viorel is not really up to help his enemies. He finally got some blood but he can't risk to stay in Vienna. He travel to Linz were he stays a bit to learn German.
Viorel wanted to go to Praha but redirect himself toward Augsburg instead where he wants to get a horse, except that the horses are a bit scared of his vampirism and maybe something else. Viorel is really not a horse expert. Then he comes into an altercation with couple of people, he wants some fear in his blood. The girl Viorel has found seemed to enjoy the game. Viorel prepares for the nightmares that come with a feast of blood, in a rush to leave, he cross the dukedom of Lorrain.
We introduced Sorina, three weeks after the beginning of Viorel's escape.
Viorel dreamed of Sorina and woke up not really remembering anything. Traveling to Paris, he arrives at "La cour des miracles". He is rescued by a stranger who turned out to be Nicolas Flamel, the alchemist he was looking for. Nicolas does some strange experiment without Viorel's agreement. Some people are looking for Nicolas's secrets. On the other side of Europe, Sorina awakes and Viorel's past in haunting him.

Now, let's continue with Vampire Heart, right where we left of last week

You paid those men to attack you, that’s why you didn’t yell when they attacked but you yelled the second time when they were attacked, you meant to get the money for yourself.” I said.
It was becoming clearer and clearer to me, once the smell of perfume and fear were overcome, I could feel the disease spreading inside of her. She was going to die soon for her bad choices. She started to laugh hysterically. She wasn’t beautiful anymore, her hatred of this world was reading on her face. One part of me wanted to pity her and the other part wanted to hurt her for being so weak, then I remembered, I had wanted her to feel the way I had felt when the vampires had taken everything that mattered to me away from me including my memory but the more I was looking at her the more I knew that those kind of deep and profound feelings would never reach a hardened heard like her. I walked around the room to the window. Heavy deep blue curtains were hanging in front of it but they hadn’t yet been closed for the night. I needed fresh air and I needed to get out here. She was still proffering insanity to me but I couldn’t even bother to listen to her. I feel attracted by the moon light. I widely opened the window the air of Praha filled the room, it was fresh and revigoring, I could smeel the blood coming down from the streets we had left, I could hear the steps of the policeman and I could hear them talk. They weren’t far, they were too close, I was feeling a bit uneasy, she could say anything about me. I walked out on the balcony uneasy, there were some stairs going down, it was my way to escape. She kept on welling at me, of course she wanted something that I ha never any intension to give but now I had decided that she could keep her wicked life. That’s when I saw it, the full moon staring at me in all it’s brightness. It seemed to be calling for me. I hasted my way down, I needed to go home before it happened. I knew that I could change when I had met my horse for the first time but I wasn’t really sure that it was a memory, it could as well have been a dream. I had never read anywhere about vampire transformation. The only report of it was tales and it was pretty foggy as well. I forced myself not to look at the moon, I walked along the street, as close to the houses as I could, I avoided to walk in the moon light. I had chosen the worse night to go out, Nicolas was probably still angry at me. This had really chosen the right moment to happen.

Wednesday Snippet: Demon World 117

Welcome to a new part of Demon World unedited, we start right where we left off last time.
“Then why Kion….” Torsti started but he didn’t finished, his face illuminated as if he suddenly was able to see farther than ever. “you think that Kion wants us to kill the witch so that the red fire would come after us and the hunters.”
“Of course, seeing his current state, I don’t think he likes the hunters very much”, Odeon said. “I have no doubt that he can read the future but I clearly doubt that he is using his vision genuinely to help the hunters get what they want.”
“And what do they want?” Lonan answered from behind the bed.
“They want to open the doors between the world and transform everything into the demon world, maybe”, Odeon said.
“That could be fun”, Lonan answered smiling like crazy imagining all the redecorating he could do.
“That would be extremely dangerous we might die, or worse, lose our powers.” Odeon answered.
“We cannot die, we are too strong” Lonan said laughing but he suddenly stopped. He had seen death, he had killed, he had seen the other demons in this cave fall one after the other but it was the first time that he was envisioning his own death. So far he had never thought that what had happened to others in front of him could happen to him.
“Say Odeon, is it painful when you die?” he said walking out from behind the bed, passing as far away from Torsti has he could to come near Odeon.
Odeon pulled him closer and made him sit on his lap.
“I don’t know Lonan, but what I know is…”

Doll Show 49 in Asakusa (with video)

Today was the Dolll Show 49. Once again they changed the location and put it in Asakusa instead of Ikebukuro. This is sort of nice for me since it's only about 30 minutes away from where I now live.
The doll show was pretty big since instead of the usual two floors, it was help on fourth floor, the last floor being for putting your own doll like a doll meeting and have some food. It was the first time they actually had ood present normally you would have to go out to eat something.
Strangely, there weren't many big company represented. Actually Groove and Cu-poche generally show up but they weren't around this time.
Azone had their usual announcement, they presented the new character azone 50cm, the new Alisa and Lycee Meow Meow a la mode which all have a sort of purplish color involved. Then they finally introduced Aoto and Yuta Otogi no Kuni which I have been waiting for for so long. They also have a new Snow White and a new Alice tea party doll in this series. I'm thinking that I might need to get them both so I'm not very sure. Then there is the new Adventure Steampunk collection doll, which are coming out in April and May. This is pretty exciting. I'll probably have some comparison pictures as they apparently made changes on their faces since the last announcement.
I went a bit over board with taking pictures with 428 in total so this video is pretty long. I'm giving my impression at the end if you want to skip parts.
Anyway guys, enjoy the pretty dolls!
