Reading that only makes me want to touch more!

Hmmm?
Could this be the charity auction they’re talking about?

Nico Auction at Mobauc featuring Nico Nico Douga products!

‘Mobauc presents Nico Auction’ is an auction set up between Mobauc and Niwango, to be held on the mobile auction website run by KDDI and Mobauc – ‘au one Mobauc’.
The Nico Auction will feature items from the Idolmaster series, products from Good Smile Company, products from Nico Nico Douga as well as products related to ‘Jimuin G’ and ‘Jason-san’.

All money received from winning bids will be donated to relief efforts in Eastern Japan. The Idolmaster and Nico Nico Douga items will have their proceeds donated to the Japan Red Cross Society, while the Good Smile Company items will add to the Cheerful JAPAN! Project donation pool.

Of course Good Smile will be happy to give some items for an event like this!  (`・ω・´)ゞ

The auction has already started, but I thought I’d take a quick look at today’s items!

Entry Number 1!

A Nendoroid Totori signed by Mel Kishida along with his favorite mask!

002

Oooh! Signed!!

Signed by Mel Kishida himself! Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule for this! The photo on the right is of Mel Kishida…

Meruru no Atelier has been released! Here is an illustration to commemorate!

This photo was upped along with the tweet above… it caused quite an uproar!

The mask in this photo…

001

Is also included in the auction!

/:::::::: ( ○)三(○)\  ” Eh…?

\::::::::   |r┬-|   /
ノ::::::::::  `ー’´ \

The real thing!!
The one that Mel-sensei wore himself!!

It’s almost unbelievable that someone will be able to grab that! I can’t believe Good Smile managed to get hold of that…
The model here is Gakkun from the production team – he isn’t actually wearing it on his face, just holding it in front, so don’t worry about that!

Entry Number 2!

Nendoroid Black Rock Shooter: Cheerful Ver. signed by CHANxCO and ‘Armored huke mk.2′ signed by huke!

003

These are also signed…!!!

To think you can get both huke and CHANxCO’s signatures at once… and just look how cute they look together!

The Armored huke was in fact huke himself on the WonFes night – he dressed up in cardboard boxes!

Although…

004

It was made just for this!

A once-off Good Smile item!

Even his feet are cute little cardboard boxes!! He is also fitted with Nendoroid joints so can be posed in all sorts of different ways, yay! The blue flame on his eye can also be removed – and you can even remove his head to give to another Nendoroid for some fun – there are no plans to make it a real product at the moment, so it’ll really be a unique item!

Entry Number 3

A special Saber ~Triumphant Excalibur~ figure signed by Takashi Takeuchi and Kinoko Nasu!

005

Yet another signed figure!!

Oooh…! I want it for myself….!!! A Saber figure with two amazing people’s signatures!

         ____

Super Soniko (Gothic Maid ver.) + Bed Base

I’m kind of worried…
If I up pictures of this figure, the blog may be labelled as 18+ on WordPress…

She is after all in a very lewd pose!!

But it’s not like you can actually see anything… It’s just an erotic atmosphere, so it should be alright… right? ^^

But anyway, I decided I had to go through with a review. If WordPress want to change the account I’ll have to reconsider in the future! :P

I do however recommend that anyone below the age of 15 does not scroll down!

.
.
.

001

So today I’ll be taking a look at this sexy figure!

Super Soniko (Gothic Maid ver.) + Bed Base Set!

It’s a figure of Super Soniko-chan wearing a maid outfit in an incredibly sexy pose! She’s trying her best at her new gravure idol job! She also comes with a cloth ribbon, giving you even more spice for the setting of this photo shoot!

This is one of Gift’s figures!
They’re really showing off what they can do now!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

The included bed stand is very detailed and absolutely gorgeous! The golden areas at the top really add some class as well!

There is also another version which doesn’t include the bed base!
In other words, it’s just Soniko-chan and a simple base – it’s obviously cheaper, but I’d definitely recommend grabbing the version that includes the base!

002

That worried face is so… so…!!

Aaah! She’s just too cute! I want her to be my wife! For those of you who don’t know Soniko-chan, here is a quick profile:

SUPER SONIKO

Gravure idol, musician.
Debuted as the mascot girl at PC Game Maker Nitroplus’s live event, ‘NITRO SUPER SONIC’. At the moment she is a gravure idol, game character and musician, as well as completing her studies at university. She is the main guitarist and vocalist in the girls band named ‘Daiichi Uchuu Sokudo’. She is known by the name ‘Niko-chan’ in the band.

There we go!
She is Nitroplus’ mascot girl!!

005

Speaking of Soniko…

So big….          _  ∩
             ( ゚∀゚)彡  Boobies! Boobies!
              ⊂彡

It’s even more erotic when you take pictures of it!!
My blog tries so hard to keep up some boundaries, but I don’t think it’s possible with this figure! :P

006

Everyone loves a garter-belt!

The details on the clasps are outstanding! Those tights are also so touchable! I just can’t help myself!

And a little unrelated, but I once did some research into the controversy of whether or not a garter belt should be worn above or underneath one’s panties… it really brings back some memories – search through the blog history if you’re interested! (Although, the blog was only in Japanese at that time, sorry!)

004

Let’s take a look from the side!

This picture is really pushing the limits now, but I do really like this shot!  From the breast area down to the turned up skirt… it’s so hard not to look! (I actually think I’d consider displaying her at this angle!!)

008jpg

She also comes with her headphones!

That is definitely one item you’ll never see Soniko-chan without! I’m fairly certain she even wears them in the bath! :P

007

You can tie the ribbon however you want!

This is just one example of what you can do with it – I think it works very nicely!

Although I think I might also choose to tie her ankles down to the bed instead… I’m not sure if the included ribbon would be long enough, but at least that’s not something too hard to get hold of if you want to try!

009jpg

Super Soniko (Gothic Maid ver.) + Bed Base!

I couldn’t take quite as many pictures as normal based on the figure… but just looking at that expression and cleavage should give you more than enough to appreciate!! ^^

If this is the first time you’ve heard of it, here is a quick summary!

フィギュアメーカー・グッドスマイルカンパニー勤務 『ミカタンブログ -松戸駅から10マス進む-』
 
Cheerful JAPAN!
http://www.cheerfuljapan.com/

The damage that has occurred during the March 11 quake in the Touhoku region is astounding, and in order to get over the destruction caused there is a lot that needs to be done, and lots of support that needs to be given. Good Smile Company has formed a support group named ‘Cheerful Japan’ which will strive to support the relief efforts for as long as possible. For at least 1 year we be releasing charity products among other efforts to raise donation money for the cause. To everyone who supports the Cheerful Japan movement – thank you, and know that your money is going where it is needed!

The first Cheerful Japan products were ‘Nendoroid Gumako: Cheerful Ver.’ and ‘Good Smile Seijin Plushie (Giant)’!

002

Nendoroid Gumako: Cheerful Ver.!

Gumako is the Good Smile Mascot that was born from an April Fools joke in 2008 – and now she is joining the Nendoroid world! A little petite-sized Good Smile Seijin is also included with Gumako!
For those of you who don’t know about Gumako…

Gumako’s Secrets

She was once a show girl for ‘GSC Udon’ at a udon shop in Matsudo.
She had a side job working as an announcer for GSC.
The things on her head are ‘udon’.
She gives depressed people some of the udon to cheer them up.

- More Info -
Gumako once ran out of energy and collapsed only to be saved by the owner of an udon shop. She then realized the power that udon has at cheering people up and giving them energy, and named that ‘Udon Power’.

That about summarizes her! Those things coming out of her helmet are in fact ‘udon’!

009

This is how the packaging looks!

The Good Smile Seijin actually is actually a nice size and very noticeable!
By the way, Gumako marks the 200th Nendoroid! Yay!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

Gumako makes use of the arm-type Nendoroid stand, while the Good Smile Seijin stands on a standard Nendoroid Petite stand, which means they can both be posed floating in the air!

004
Lets take a look at the optional parts!
A bent left arm and bent leg!

The arm can be removed at the area of skin on her arm, so you don’t need to touch her shoulder parts to attach it. I must say that the orange and white outfit is really adorable! The colors look so great together!

005

She also has a content expression!

She looks so very happy – it makes me fell happy as well – and the reason she is so happy is of course because she also comes with…

Udon, chopsticks and hands to hold them!

Gumako knows of the power that udon has to make people happy! When you’re feeling down, you just need to look at this figure and you’re bound to cheer up!

006

Nendoroid Petite Good Smile Seijin!

His tentacle things are posable!
They are fitted with ball joints, so there is a limit to how they can be moved around, but you can still make all sorts of poses!

008

She can use other Nendoroid expressions!

Just pick your favorite Nendoroid expression and give it to Gumako to try on! The expression above is Nendoroid BRS’s CHANxCO Face! The eye color matches perfectly so it looks super adorable on her!

007

Trying the helmet on other Nendos was unsuccessful…

It’s very rare for the helmet to fit neatly on a differently sized head part, plus the helmet has tabs inside to place on Gumako. But you can always do it the other way around and just use Gumako’s body with a different Nendoroid’s head! :P Gumako cosplay!

011

Two stickers are also included!

The stickers are the same size as the square stand, so you can stick one of them onto the stand if you like – or anywhere else you want! You will need to poke a hole in the sticker for the point the arm fits in.

010

Nendoroid Gumako: Cheerful Ver.!

Plus,

Good Smile Seijin Plushie (Giant)!

   /`ー、_ノ /      /

It will be sent out to everyone who ordered on the 29th!
The GSC-Seijin Plushie is really huge! Prepare yourselves! :P

There were a few extras made, which will be sent to animate stores. Get in touch with your closest animate store for more info!
 
 
But that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛

001

It’s huge…!

I’m sure it must be a prototype or a figure that just went on sale… but which one could it be!? With such a huge smile on his face, it’s got to be something really great!

002

And inside was this wonderful prototype!

From the Touhou Project:
Ran Yakumo!

From the famous Touhou Project series by the doujin circle Shanghai Alice comes this 1/8th scale figure of Ran Yakumo, the nine-tailed fox youkai! This is the third Touhou project from Phat! Company following on from Chen  and Yukari Yakumo!

003

This is how she look from the back!

Her tails are so big and fluffy you almost can’t see her at all! :P
Her trademark 9-tails are absolutely gorgeous!

004

Here is a view from the side!

It really is a huge, fluffy tail! Because this is a prototype the tail was incredibly heavy as well… I’m not sure how it’s going to be supported on the actual product…

     / ̄ ̄\
   / .ー  ー \ ← Uchitarou

   |   . `⌒   }
   ヽ       }
    ヽ     ノ
   /      ヽ 

Ah, I see! By making it hollow inside it’ll be a lot lighter! You can find out how the tail is supported here over on Phat! Company’s blog – it’s quite an interesting article and well worth the read!

http://ameblo.jp/phatcompany/

005

What adorable eyes!

They’re very finely painted on – the expression all in all is very cute and detailed! The tips of her hair also have a light pink tinge to them which looks wonderful! I wish I could get her to make me dinner everyday – bringing it to me with a smile like this on her face!

006

Ooh! Very nice!

It almost looks as if she is supporting her breasts with her arms there – it looks really nice! I’m sure I know where everyone’s eyes went first – but also look at how detailed the sleeves have been sculpted!

007

This is how her feet look!

Her skirt is sculpted as if blowing out a bit, and the frills on the bottom have a nice Touhou feel about them! Her boots have an enamel paint job which looks great – you can’t even see the feet that easily but there has been a tonne of work put into them!

009

Her hat can of course be removed.

You can pick which you prefer or dress her up differently each day! The little seals on her hat are also very detailed!

008

The Yakumo household!

From the left we have Ran Yakumo, Yukari Yakumo and Chen! The two on the right are already released! (Well, Yukari is out in October – not long now! )

Fans of the Yakumo household – it’s definitely worth it to grab all three of these lovely figures!

002

From the Touhou Project:

She’ll be up for pre-order soon!

As with all Touhou products, you’ll need to contact Niconico Chokuhan, animate, Gamers or Tora no Ana for pre-order and sales information.
After she is announced at the Good Smile Company site, you’ll be able to grab her at those stores.

1/8th Scale Homura Akemi

001

Now we continue with last week’s teaser!

Last week I gave you a quick look at her, but today we’ll be doing a much more in-depth review!

I think I may have been looking forward to doing this review even more than you all wanted to see it – so I’ll be taking a load of photos. :P

001
The 2nd in the Madoka Magica 1/8th scale figure series:

Homura Akemi!

She is of course the mysterious transfer student from the popular anime series, ‘Puella Magi Madoka Magica – now here as a wonderful 1/8th scale figure to join the first figure from the series,  Madoka Kaname!

002

This is how she looks from the back!
She is posed as if the wind is blowing through her long black hair!!

Plus those beautiful legs just have to be mentioned!!
That body-line made from her thighs to her knees is just stunning!

003

A closer look from the front!

A much simpler design when compared to Madoka’s Puella Magi outfit, but it’s still very detailed when you look up close!  Just look at the folded over sleeves and neck area, as well as that thin ribbon – such fine craftsmanship!

007

This angle gives the SHAFT pose effect!

As I’ve said on the blog many times before, I don’t normally take photos from below the figure, because they generally look much cuter when you look at them straight on or from above! :P

But Homura-chan really looks good from this angle!
I really think it brings out her personality nicely!

005

Her skirt is absolutely fantastic!

I love the way the frills are blowing up like that – it’s such wonderful sculpting. And just look at the thigh on the right! It’s so perfect!

006

That S-line is the perfect shape for a girl!

The wrinkles around her waist area are so subtle but really add a nice depth to the figure! The design of the outfit really suits her so perfectly!

004

A Soul Gem on her hand!

This picture is actually enlarged – the gem is even smaller than this, but as you can see it’s really almost scary how detailed it is for such a tiny part of the figure… her pinky finger is also lifting up a little bit higher than her other fingers… such wonderful detail!!

012

Those legs really are incredible!

I don’t only mean that in a sexy way, I mean they are amazing sculpted as well! Just look in particular at the thighs and knees – they’re just perfect! You really have to get a nice close look for yourself! If you think you have the same tastes as me then this is definitely a figure you’ll enjoy! :)

Of course she will!

010

Replaceable parts for a shield and pistol!

The parts just replace her arms entirely from the shoulders down. It wouldn’t be a real Homura-chan figure without these as an option!

Ah, by the way – the Kyubey here is the one included with Nendoroid Madoka, and isn’t included with this figure. (I was a bit worried balancing him on the prototype like this…)
009

Today’s best shot!

Aaah! She is so adorable!!
I want to take her home with me right now and put her on display!

The 2nd in the Madoka Magica 1/8th scale figure series:

Homura Akemi!

Can you tell who it is from here…?

That pose, color… I’m sure you can tell who it is! Let’s take a closer look!

002

Those tights look familiar too!

The drapes and frills on the skirt… they look so beautifully sculpted!! You can’t help but take a good long look and appreciate them!

003

Long, straight, black hair!

The hair, ribbons and skirt all look like they’re blowing in the wind!! I also love the way the backside of her knees have been sculpted! It just makes you want to touch them when you see that smooth look!

Tokyo Game Show 2011

         / ̄ ̄ ̄ \
      /   :::\::/\   ”It’s so hot…
     /    <一>:::<ー>。   It’s September, but it’s still so hot!!”

    /  ⌒ヽ゚  '”‘”´(;゚ 。 

001
Tokyo Game Show 2011 @ The Makuhari Messe!

There have been so many events at the Makuhari Messe recently, that I’ve finally managed to memorize the route from the station to the event hall I’ll never get lost again now! But that doesn’t help the fact that it’s so unbearably hot!! As you can see, I went to the once-a-year Tokyo Game Show event this year on a hot and sunny Monday!

002

SEGA~ ♪

Arrival at the Sega booth!

“H-huh? There aren’t many people here…?”

Indeed – but that’s because this is still before the event had actually started! The staff is just checking everything is ready for the crowds! I’m actually here to bring a special Nendoroid Petite to the Sega stage!

003

Project DIVA extend!

Following on the from the hit PSP game ‘Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- 2nd’ comes extend which adds more to the system as well as adds new songs and modules! I’ve been playing the original for quite some time!! ((Although I’m still yet to finish the last level on extreme mode…)

004

Project mirai
!

Today my focus is on this title!

Sega have made a 3DS game using the Vocaloid Nendoroids!! (*゚∀゚)ノ *゜・。+ *゜・

This is… this is incredible! I’ve been watching the Nendoroids ever since #00, and to think I’ll be able to see them dancing and singing inside a game is just incredible!

005

I want to play as well!!

Normally I’m a bit reclusive, but I decided to be courageous and ask the staff! Even though they were so busy with preparations they were happy to let me try it out! Yay!

006

Al-Alright!!

This is actually the first time I’ve used a 3DS too!
Just seeing Miku on the screen was incredible… but then when I actually played…

゚ | ・  | .+o   ____* o。 |。|   *。 |
゚ |i    | +   /_ノ ‘ ヽ_\  
o。!    |! ゚o / (≡)   (≡) \     “Aaaah!

 *o゚ |! |     |r┬-|     |

 |o   |・゚  >         |  *。*   |    
* ゚  l|  /           |    | +|

The game is really fun! And the Miku-san dancing in the back is so adorable!

The game is also a music game similar to DIVA, but it does have it’s differences and is fun in a whole new way! Plus it has Nendoroid Miku-san dancing in the background!! It’s really hard to decide whether I should concentrate on the game or rather on the Miku dancing!! :P

001

This is 3DS Miku-san!

It’s a pity I can’t get the 3D effect to work over the camera, but she is of course in full 3D in the game! You can always simply turn it off through if the 3D effects make you uncomfortable.

All the characters modelling has gone though Good Smile to get the real Nendoroid designs into the game!

The main people at GSC working on it were myself and Gakkun from the production team! They really look like the real Nendoroids!

       / ̄ ̄ ̄\
     / ─    ─  \   ”To be honest, I think they look too good”

    |   (__人__) し |  
    \    ` ⌒´    / 
    /  し          \

Sega really showed what they are capable of when it comes to 3D modelling! I’m really impressed! The Nendoroid cuteness really comes through perfectly!

016

Nendo Petite Miku’s Debut!

I came by today with this prototype to show at the Sega booth!

She will be included as an extra with Project mirai!

You can find more info over at the Project mirai website!

 – Project mirai -
http://miku.sega.jp/mirai/

 
 
Eep… while I was playing around with the games…

The show had actually started!
008

SEGA~♪

I decided I had to take a look around for myself seen I had come out all this way! My HP and MP were full and ready to take on the other booths!

009

The queue to play Project mirai!

The numbered tickets had already run out… talk about popular! I’m glad I managed to get a game in before the crowds! xD

010

Giant Nendoroid Miku-san!?

A human-sized costume of Nendoroid Miku also found its way to the event! It was huge! Apparently she will be back even better in the future!

011

The girls of Kurohyo: Ryuu ga Gotoku Shinshou

I think this photo came out wonderfully! What do you think!? I actually used up most of my HP and MP here…

        ____
      /::::::─三三─\
    /:::::::: ( ○)三(○)\  ”Everyone taking photos is a guy!”
    |::::::::::::(__人__)::|
     \:::::::::   |r┬-|   /
    ノ::::::::::::  `ー’´ \

I think I was the only girl in an entire squadron of guys… it look a lot of courage! :P But I just had to get a photo for myself!!

014

Sony’s booth!

The crowds were quite exited about the upcoming Vita! I really wanted to try it myself, but the queues were just too long for me to wait in… what a pity!

012

Bushiroad’s booth!

There were a load of card things going on, as well as my favorite Milky Girls! Bushiroad really went all out this year!

015

And that ends by Tokyo Game Show 2011 coverage!

Just look at the image above!

I just didn’t have the HP and MP to wade through those waves of people… just by going to the Kurohyo booth I got a status ailment that prevented me from going any further. :P
 
Apparently this years Tokyo Game Show reached the most visitors ever! The game industry just seems to be getting stronger by the day!
 
 
Anyway, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow! (・∀・)ノ゛
