Could this flag be a brand new prototype…?

But of course it’s more than just the flag… but I do wonder where the actual figures are then… I guess it’s time to activate my prototype sensor and take a look around the offices until I manage to find the new prototype!


The 8th part of the Cheerful JAPAN! Project…

Nendoroid Saber & Rin Tohsaka : Cheerful ver.!

The eighth product to join the Cheerful JAPAN! project is a set of two Nendoroids of TYPE-MOON’s popular characters – Saber and Rin Tohsaka, both wearing adorable cheerleader outfits! The Nendoroids are based on an illustration by Takashi Takeuchi, the original illustrator the series, which featured younger versions of the two girls – and now they’ve been shrunk down to adorable Nendoroid size as well!

“Based on an illustration by Takashi Takeuchi”

“Younger versions of the two girls”

Just what I wanted to hear!!
I’m sure fans of Fate/Zero are thinking the same thing!

   / ,_ \ \/\ \

Plus, we also even got a comment from Takeuchi-sensei about the illustration!

Here we have younger versions of Rin and Saber wearing cheerleader outfits.
I believe this is the first ever debut of a younger version of Saber!

Aaaah! Thank you so much, Takeuchi-sensei!

Just having your comment on my blog was more than enough, but to think it’s also the debut place for the younger Saber!! I don’t know how I can thank you enough!


This is how the look from the back!

I’m sorry… I know I shouldn’t say it and I’ll probably get into trouble for this, but I can’t help it!
Those outfits are way too sexy!!



As with all the previous Cheerful products, they come with pompons to cheer everyone on! She also has a bent leg to really recreate Takeuchi-sensei’s illustration to the fullest!

Saber has lovely long braided hair, which is also fitted with a Nendoroid join for some different poses – it can swivel around left and right!


Rin Tohsaka!

She also comes her own set of red pompons! Perfect for Rin, and so cute!

This is actually the first Nendoroid of Rin since Yasagure Rin!
That really was one of the very first Nendoroids, so I’m sure there are a couple who don’t have her, so now is your chance to grab her!


This version comes with the same face!

This giant support flag is also included!

As with the pompons, some kind of support flag is always included – this time it’s a giant one like this! 🙂 They both have to hold it up together!

As you can see, they also have bent arms included!
The arms work for either of them, so you can use either use both on one of them, or one each, like this!


They also come with sitting parts!!

They also switched outfits! It’s a bit modest of me to say this about a GSC product, but they really are so unbelievably cute like this!!

You could even display them back-to-back! I think that would look great!
I’m certain any Fate addicts will love these two!
Even simple fans like myself will be very happy with them!! So cute!!

Nendoroid Nero Yuzurizaki

I spy with my little eye… something on Oda-P’s desk…!

“Tantei Opera Milky Holmes Summer Special ~Farewell, Kotori-chan. A Long Good-bye, Forever~”

The Blu-ray version! (That’s a really long title! xD)


The Sonic game beside also peaks my interest… (I grabbed the 3DS version myself!), but even more important is what is beneath it!

The 3rd Milky Holmes Nendoroid:
Nendoroid Nero Yuzurizaki!

The playful Milky Holmes member from the anime series with a second season on the way, ‘Tantei Opera Milky Holmes!”

Sorry for the long wait, Milky fans!  ・゚・(ノД`)・゚・
I last looked at Elly back in August, so it’s been four months since the last Nendoroid release! I would also like to point out that I am one of those Milky fans!


This is how she looks from the back!

She is the only Milky Holmes member that is wearing shorts!! Nero is in fact the only one of the girls that really shows off her thighs!  Her legs are connected by ball joints which really work nicely with the shorts and allow for all kinds of poses!


I’m sure I don’t even need to say it, but…
The hat is of course removable!

I also don’t think I need to tell you that Nero looks super cute without her hat! 😛 She also comes with bent legs as you can see in the picture – they let you add a nice dynamic running feeling like this!


The flying machine from the last episode!

The flying machine that Twenty was using in the last episode of season 1 is also included! Plus it can also be equipped to other characters! I must say I really loved Twenty in the anime series… he was such a pervert. 😛

You can’t have a Milky Nendoroid without…
A Toys Expression!

As with all the previous Nendoroids from the series, she also comes with this lovely expression! For those unfamiliar with the series – each of the girls have a special power called their ‘Toys’, and when they use these powers their eyes start to kind of sparkle like this!
Nero also comes with the metal rod she uses for her ability!
Nero’s ability lets her control any electronic equipment!


All the previous Milky Holmes Nendoroids have had some really unbelievable optional parts… what about Nero!?


Possessed by her ancestor!

Just as I expected! 😛 When I saw the parts that came with Elly, I wondered if the same would come true for Nero… it really did! A quick summary of the parts here:

Wolfe Face, Wolfe Hair Parts(!!), Wolfe Upper Body as well as a bent left arm and a tasty snack!

I’m not quite so sure how much this actually represents Nero Wolfe, but I do know that that face is absolutely adorable! 😛 I can’t try right now, but later on I think I’ll try using this expression on some other characters!!


The three members lined up together!

They really look great all lined up together! The Milky colors are so vibrant – they’ll really brighten up any figure collection!

Nendoroid Elly will be sent out from GSC on the 15th December!
The quick stores should have her up on the day after, so preorder your Nero and grab your Elly at the same time!

For preorder or sales info, be sure to check out our partner shops!


By the way, the Blu-Ray that was mentioned at the start of this article…

“Tantei Opera Milky Holmes Summer Special ~Farewell, Kotori-chan. A Long Good-bye, Forever~”

Is a Summer Special that precedes the second season of the anime series! It’s also got a load of great extras and is on sale right now, so if you’re a Milky fan do consider grabbing it as well!
Anyway, that’s all for today.
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛
