What is GK?
Garage kit is a term referring to the niche, cast resin models that are made in small quantities, often by hobbyist in his/her garage - thus, the name sake, garage kits. The subjects of GKs are diverse, from anime to realistic-looking models to animals, and even mecha. The focus here is the anime figures. Below is a picture of what a GK look like:

Please Dont Call Them Dolls

Ninja Demon - Chapter Twelve“Hiro? Are you really okay?” Seki asked. “You were at the edge of unleashing your full power already. It really got me scared.”Ninja Demon - Chapter Twelve4 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Hiro laughed. “So if I became a demon and became blinded by the hunger of blood that you think I might kill you along with it?” Seki blushed. Hiro laughed even harder. “Stupid, I don’t care if I become a monster, I won’t ever hurt you. Not a scar or a scratch. I swear.” He leaned down so they were looking at each other eye to eye. “So… Is this a mushy moment?”
Seki fake coughed. “Y-Yeah, back off. I hate mushy moments. I hate you!”
Hiro grabbed her wrist before she could slap him. Slap him playfully, of course. “Look, I know you don’t hate me. I also know that you don’t want me to back off. Why? Because you defended our other ‘mushy moment’ just a few minutes ago!”
“Shut up,” Seki’s face became flustered. “I-I
Forever FriendsTruly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave and impossible to forget.Forever Friends5 months ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
It all happened on that first day
The day you and I met
We were strangers, shy, yet curious
It's a day I will never forget
I said hello and you replied
So quietly, yet so clear
Then we talked and had our laughs
With a smile, smirk and merry cheer
We joked around, had some fun
Then laughed without end
That's the day we made a promise
To stay forever friends
Ninja Demon - Chapter Two“Seki? Sekimura…?”Ninja Demon - Chapter Two5 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Seki’s eyes widened at the familiar voice. Her eyes glanced around the crowd and quickly found who called her name. A woman. A very beautiful woman. Her long, luscious ebony hair coiled behind her back. Her golden eyes added on to her beauty in a mysteriously unique way. Her lips were a bright yet natural red. Even though she didn’t like it, she showed a human emotion, a weak emotion, in front of the people she loathed so much. Sadness.
“Mother...” Seki whispered, tears escaping from her eyes. “I thought… I thought you died… When Elder attacked the village…”
The woman smiled warmly. “No, Seki. I had survived. Were you… Worried about me?”
“Ayumi! Why do you call your daughter by her demon name, not her real one?” one of the guards in the crowd complained. “She is a monster! If you see her as your daughter, use her human name!”
“Shut up!” S
Ninja Demon - Chapter ThreeSeki’s heart skipped a beat. She hadn’t heard that name in ages. Make that seven years, to be exact. It was seven years ago that Firefox was destroyed. That her father and brother were killed. That Elder was killed. That Chiaki and Takamori were transformed. The day of destruction.Ninja Demon - Chapter Three5 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
My childhood nickname… she thought. But who would call me Sekiaki? The only people that know of it are me and... Seki gasped to herself and searched for where the voice came from. In an instant, she spotted the familiar fiery red hair being blown in the wind. No way… Hiro?!
The boy stared at her, his golden-orange eyes locked with Seki’s emerald orbs. Instead of the usual brown, tattered training outfit he wore before Seki was transformed, he had a blazing red and orange ninja outfit, along with a coal black sash that the demon had given him when they were small.
Seki recognized the sash immediately and tears were brought to her eyes. She tore her eyes fro
