I am Miette-chan, for those that wonder about where that name came from “miette” is French for crumb. I chose this name as I wanted a single nickname to use both online and in games. I went for something feminine sounding as I tend to choose female characters most of the time.

I enjoy watching anime, reading manga and the like.

I equally enjoy playing video games of all genres and have no obvious preference to any console or handheld.


This is my blog Otagamer, the title comes from the words “Otaku” and “Gamer”. I concider myself part of both groups thus my choice for the name of this blog.

What you will find here is a variety of posts that will include:

  • Figures I buy, including both scaled and articulated figures and accompanying photos.
  • The occasional figure review.
  • Photos about my Dollfie Nanoha.
  • Musings about games I play.


I became increasingly interested in pvc figures in particular with figmas.

When my friend went to Japan and brought me my first figma Yuki, it opened the world of figure photography for me.

I love playing all types of video games and have been doing so practically all my life.

My desire to share these two worlds plus my interest in consumer generated media led me to create this blog.


Every week on Sunday, simple as that.

    Neat blog there! Ok if i have a link exchange with you?
    =D anyway, I got this question actually.

    How do you do that white border with drop shadow around your photos? Plugin or customize in CSS?

    • Miette-chan says:

      Sure, that’s fine with me.

      As for the border that’s part of the theme, I only thing I can suggest is taking at the source code for the theme.

      • Kiro says:

    Ah, Miette. Do you speak French by any chance? Just wondering.

    Anyway, nice blog. I’ll be stopping by from time to time, since I’m not much of figurine collector and hoping to make an entry. Be looking forward to your post and hope to stay in touch.

    BTW: Mind if I add you to my Revitalize Network project? It is a blogroll of sorts. For more information you can contact me.

      No I do not, I do know Miette is French name though.

      Glad you liked my posts, while it is mostly figures I do post other stuff every now and then.

      Sure I don’t mind, you can add me to your blogroll.
