Lots of products and prototypes to check…!

There is one prototype that I can’t wait to show everyone, it has come out so cute! I’ll be able to show everyone soon!!

Today it’s time for a much-needed prototype review!

Good Smile is moving offices on the 29th June, but I’ll be getting through as many reviews before then as possible! I’ve already contacted the planning team to ask to keep the prototypes until the move!

So let’s get started today with…


Nendoroid Petite : 


From the popular idol simulation game, THE IDOL@STER2 comes another set of cute figures to join the first set! This time along the set includes Miki Hoshii, Iori Minase, Yukiho Hagiwara, Azusa Miura, Ami Futami and Hibiki Ganaha all in their stage outfits!

A total of 7 to collect including one secret character!

Each single figure will cost 500JPY, but just like the first set there will also be a larger box containing 8 figures.


Yukiho Hagiwara & Miki Hoshii!

The outfits are the same as Stage 01 -the outfit is called ‘Pink Diamond’ in the game! Miki is showing off her lovely body and hips!


Azusa Miura & Iori Minase!

The slightly older idols of IDOLM@STER 2! I personally think Azusa looks much better with her hair like this! It’s so cute!


Hibiki Ganaha & Ami Futami!

Ami’s twin sister was in Stage 01, so now you can display the two of them together! The diamonds along Hibiki’s pants are less than a millimeter in size – as always the Nendoroid Petites are going to cause a lot of trouble for the manufacturing team! 😛

The Stage 2 figures are looking at their predecessors…

Nendoroid Petite : THE IDOLM@STER2  – Stage 01 will be on sale from the 26th June! (・∀・)ノ

This is one of the boxes filled with 8 smaller boxes – you don’t know which character you will get in the smaller boxes until you open them!

I got the secret character first again!!

But I think most of you can figure out who it is even from the back! (`・ω・´)  


The complete Stage 01 set!

Wow! They came out wonderfully – even the small small gold areas on the outfits have been painted perfectly! Wonderful!


You can hardly tell the difference between the prototypes and the product versions!! (((゚Д゚)))

Of course you can tell which ones are the prototypes because they all have larger bases at the moment. But seeing all the idols together like this is really a lovely sight!


Nendoroid Petite :


They’ll be up on the GSC site from Monday!

Get in contact with our partner shops if you have any sales or preorder inquiries!

Now time for some news!


“Berserk : Golden Age Arc II -The Battle for Doldrey” is in cinemas from the 23rd June!

In other words it starts tomorrow! Akiyama-san managed to use his charms to get hold of one of the gorgeous pamphlets that will be on sale at cinemas early – you can see Yukipo is very interested in it! It has a beautiful cover with a golden foil logo! I think displaying this beside the figmas would look wonderful!


Even more news!


The Black Rock Shooter Blu-ray &
DVD BOX also goes on sale tomorrow!

The photo above is of the Black Rock Shooter DVD BOX (Limited First Edition). I found it over at Otanaka’s desk and quickly stole it before he could stop me!

The packaging features illustrations by huke!  


This is the contents of the box!

Obviously the DVDs with the anime are all included, but along with them you’ll also get a load of extras including a booklet with interviews and character designs, the original soundtrack of the series and a special video collection disk! A lovely set of goodies for any fan – not to mention that it also comes with…


figma Insane Black Rock Shooter!

This is just a picture of the inner packaging, but the actual version does come in it’s own box!


Posed and ready to fight!

I’m always impressed with the figmas of the BRS series! (And I’m not just saying that to advertise, they are really amazing!) They stick into really nice poses so easily and it’s so much fun to pose them. I’m certain she’ll look great displayed with the normal Black Rock Shooter figma, but note that she is only included with…

The Black Rock Shooter Blu-ray BOX (Complete Limited Edition Version) or The Black Rock Shooter DVD BOX (Complete Limited Edition Version)!

You’ll only find her with these sets, so make sure you don’t buy the wrong version if you want her!

The boxsets are on sale tomorrow!

But that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again next week!

I’ll be Kyuushuu tomorrow with the sales team that are touring Japan – if you see me feel free to come have a chat! (・∀・)ノ゛

Tokyo! Nagoya! Osaka!

(Photo from Osaka!)


The Max Factory staff have been touring around Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka to show off the popular Luka Megurine Tony ver. Prototype!

Loads of people came to take a look, and the Max Factory staff looked delighted by the numbers! A big thank you to everyone who went down to take a look!

But Luka was not the only figure on display! Can you see the figure with an arrow pointing to it?


figma Black Rock Shooter :


She is a figma from the anime series ‘Black Rock Shooter’ – a figma of Mato’s mysterious existence in the alternate world – Black Rock Shooter.

Tonight is the final episode of the BRS anime!
It is on Fuji TV’s Noitamina block, starting at 00:50!!

Those who haven’t seen the first episodes can still catch them on Nico Nico Douga at any time! Kagari-chan’s personality is just to die for!!



This is how she looks from the back!

The most notable difference is the hood that she is wearing, however her clothes and weapons have also had a design overhaul, in order for the production team to have an even harder time customer’s to enjoy her more than ever before!

The coat she is wearing is fitted with joints to make some incredibly dynamic poses!


Her sword, the Black Blade!

She is holding it in her left hand in this photo, but she can hold it in her right hand as well! BRS-chan is well known for being posed in epic poses like this, so I had to try it out with the figma! Even in such an amazing pose, you still can hardly see the joints at all!


The Rock Cannon!

As soon as the final product is released I’ll have to pose her fighting around macarons! (But I’ll eat them all up afterwards!) The Rock Cannon is so huge that it’s almost hard to believe it’s designed for a figma…

She has two expressions – a focused expression, and a standard expression (seen above)

Plus she has extra head parts that allow you to pose her without the hood and with her twin-tailed hair instead!


The Rock Cannon can open up!

This recreates the way it worked in the series! It’s wonderful to see it on the figma as well!

Plus, you can’t have BRS-chan without the blue flame!
She has a replaceable fringe part that lets you pose her with the blue flame over her eye!


The Tokyo International Anime Fair started today, and Good Smile has their very own booth at the event!

This picture is from setting up yesterday. ^^

WonHobby Booth’s ‘Peel Off’ Corner!


It just looks like little dots from here, but the ‘BRS’ is made up of loads of tin badges!

There are a total of 4000 badges up on that wall… and as the day went on those attending the event could peel off one badge each… and once they were all gone…



A lovely picture of Insane Black Rock Shooter appears!

WonFes was in fact the debut place of figma Insane Black Rock Shooter! I managed to get hold of the prototype today, so I’ll be taking a closer look!


figma Insane Black Rock Shooter!

From the anime series currently running on the Noitamina block, ‘Black Rock Shooter’ comes a figma of Insane Black Rock Shooter which will be included with the limited first editions of the Blu-ray Box & DVD Box sets. Enjoy the mystical charm of Insane Black Rock Shooter in figma form to posing her however you please!

The box-sets will be available from the 22nd of June!

They are currently up for preorder, and as they are a limited first edition – you’d better grab it before it’s too late! (`・ω・´)ゞ


This is how she looks from the back!

    /:::::::: ( ○)三(○)\  ”She is huge!!”  
     \::::::   |r┬-|   ,/
    ノ:::::::::  `ー’´   \   

She really is incredibly big!
But more importantly she is incredibly cool!!

Shooter-chan has been transformed into lots of different figmas now, but I think this one is my bets so far! Of course the main reason for that is huke’s lovely design, but the craft work on the figure is also the most incredible so far! Looking at figmas like this really reminds me just how wonderful Max Factory are!


The Insane Canon Lance!

I didn’t think the photo alone would give a good feeling for just how big this weapon is, so I but a 30cm ruler underneath! 😛 With Insane-chan included, they are a little over 25cm in length!


The chain is also included!

Insane-chan was also introduced on the figma blog, and there you can see the default is to connect the chain into her back, but you can also pose it like this – it’s completely up to you.

Completely unrelated to the chain… but I have to say that I think that the hat on Insane-chan’s head looks kind of like a nurse’s cap, it looks great! I don’t think I’d want a nurse with such cold eyes though! 😛


The Insane Blade Claw!

You can’t really tell from the photo, but the edges of the sword are actually quite rough and very realistic! The same goes for the Insane Canon Lance as well as with her armor. Every single part is so very detailed – I can really see the passion that was put into making this figure!


Flame parts are also included!

You attach the flame by inserting it into the nurse cap (at least, that’s what I call it :P). Insane-chan has a beautiful purple flame in contrast to the normal blue flame we’ve seen on the normal Black Rock Shooter figures.


There are two expressions included!

A standard expression as well as a much more evil looking glaring expression. She has very unique looking eyes, they really have a strong impact! It’s unbelievable how wonderful this figma has come out… you can hardly even see the joints at all, which is ideal for a figma! I could make almost any pose, and still almost never see the joints.


figma Insane Black Rock Shooter!

Hi there everyone!
The Mikatan Blog Takeover has not ended yet!

Today’s blog will be taken over by me, Sacchan – yet another newcomer to Good Smile Company! (I started about 5 months ago)

But I don’t even have a camera! I suppose the first thing I’ll need to do is borrow one! (´□`;) But I know that Shuuchan will let me borrow his!

“Use this to change the shutter speed, and this to change the ISO.”


I think I forgot about 70% of Shuuchan’s explanation, but I’ll give it a go anyway! Today we’ll be looking at this figure!!

From Black Rock Shooter:
Strength -animation version

Strength is the mysterious character that appears at the start of the Black Rock Shooter anime and watches over BRS’s fight – and now she is here as a lovely 1/8th scale figure! She has a lovely light looking pose that makes it seem like she is floating up in the air. She is heading out to shops very soon, so I thought I’d take a look at one of the samples that arrived here!

She looks all floaty from the back too!

Strength herself has quite a small build, but her giant arms known as ‘Ogre Arms’ are definitely the biggest highlight of her character! Although the long tail is also very cute!

A face shrouded in mystery!

Her fringe seems to just cover up the top of her eyes giving a very mysterious feeling – scale figures really are on a different level to Nendoroids or figmas! Her mouth is also subtly covered up by her clothes, adding even more to her mysterious charm. (`・ω・´)

A close up of the Orge Arm! 

It really is ginormous!! It also has a very realistic metallic feeling to it. (´Д`*) I really expected it to be all cold and metal like when I touched it (´Д`*)

A close-up of her long, windy tail!

It appears her tail is coming out of her skirt! (*´Д`*) The little white ribbon at the base of the tail adds a strange cutesy feeling to the tail! (`・ω・´). Her bare shoulders and back are also a lovely sight! (*´Д`*)

My personal favorite part of the figure…! 

Her hidden mouth!!! (゜Д゜)=3
Normally you can’t see her mouth as it’s hidden behind her clothes, but when you make the effor to take a look, it’s just such a cute little mouth! Somehow when a part of the figure is hidden except for at a specific angle, it makes it all the more interesting to look at! Be sure to take a look at your figures from any angle possible! (*´∀`)


Last but not least, her cute little legs!

The knee-high socks give you a nice look at her thighs, and also come with the same cute little white ribbon to give her that strange cute side once again! The ribbons give her a really girly feeling, but the contrast of that cutesy girl feeling with the huge Ogre Arm is incredible… (*>▽<)


Strength -animation version-

She’ll be in stores from the 12th September!!

Just look out for the package above! (*`・ω・´)
For sales and order information be sure to contact our partner shops!

I must say, cameras really aren’t that easy to use, are they… I’ll have to work on my photography skills for next time! I’ll see you then!

Next up in the Mikatan Blog Takeover… the baton passes back to Shuuchan!!

Golden Saw-chan!


Sailor uniform! Sexy!

 /   (=・=)  (=・=)\   Plus apparently there are a whole bunch of
 |       (__人__)  |       new illustrations just for the art book!”
  \     |r┬-|   /
  ノ     ー’´   \

huke’s very first art book will be titled –


And it will come in two different editions.

(゚д゚) BLK
        → The art book alone, which will sell for 3200JPY.

(゚д゚) BLK Limited Edition (With figma BRSB)
        → The art book plus a figma, which will sell for 6800JPY.


And so….

Today I’ll be taking a look at the included figma BRSB!

Master figures of figmas are very fragile so I can’t be too bold with my posing, but I’ll try my best!


BLK Limited Edition (With figma BRSB)!

huke is the creator of Black Rock Shooter, but also famous for his character designs in other series such as the popular Steins; Gate – his first ark book ‘BLK’ brings all his work together, and to commemorate it’s sale will also come with this figma of another of his illustrations – BRSB! (Black Rock Shooter BEAST)

       / ̄ ̄ ̄\
     /  ─    ─ \    ”Eh?
    /   <○>  <○>  \   Black Rock Shooter BEAST? I’ve never heard of it!”
    |    (__人__) し|  
    \    `Y⌒y’   /
    /      ゙ー ′  \


The mysterious BRS on the front cover of the art book is in fact BRSB!

You can see the illustration above! I do wonder how exactly she differs from the normal BRS-chan… I guess maybe she is more wild and ‘beast’-like as the name suggests?

This is how she looks from the back!

Isn’t that a skirt…? Plus it looks like if you opened that zip the skirt would just fall off! 😛 I also really love the legs – the futuristic look suits her really nicely! The tatoo design on her back also adds a nice sexy feel to her!


A giant sword – the BRS Blade!

It’s absolutely humongous, and when BRSB-chan holds it she looks awesome!

She also has a blue flame on her eye like BRS-chan!

By the way, the crown thing on her head can be removed, but it will leave a little hole where it attaches – it doesn’t really stand out though, so it shouldn’t be a problem.


The ‘Seven Shot’ that featured in the illustration!

Plus she has special hands just to hold the huge gun as well! I think I’m doing pretty well with the poses for once – it’s so easy to pose!


The back of the BRS Blade is incredible!

Look at the minute detail on the patterns and writing!! This has to be my favorite picture for today – she just looks so cute there!


She can even hold both at once!

There are a load of extra hand parts included which even let you do things like this! The spiky bit on her knee also has joints put in it so it’s easy to get into a pose without struggling.

An expression with closed eyes!

Her mouth also looks tightly shut as she is deep in thought… another cute expression!! The blue flame can also be used on this expression!


As another bonus to getting the BLK Limited Edition…
You’ll be able to get a BRSB Avatar in Puchitto Rock Shooter!!

It’s a lovely avatar illustrated by the popular CHAN x CO! For those not playing Puchitto Rock Shooter, you should give it a go – it’s a lot of fun once you give it a try!


BLK Limited Edition (With figma BRSB)!

Yep! Tomorrow, August 25th…
Is release day for Black Rock Shooter THE GAME!

You’ll finally be able to give it a go, I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait!

The picture here is of the
Black Rock Shooter THE GAME: White Premium BOX!

It’s a limited edition with figma WRS, BRS Artworks and the Limited Soundtrack  all included! Must have products for fans!


figma WRS !

Just who is WRS-chan??? If you keep the figma by your side while you play the game, you might figure it out! 😛

This figma really had a lot of work put into it by Gakkun from the production team! I’m sure you’ll all be very happy with it when it arrives at your homes!


Black Rock Shooter THE GAME WRS Charm Box!

This special first print edition comes with a little charm based on one of CHAN x CO’s illustrations of WRS! This one is cheaper than the figma set, so have a discussion with your wallet and then decide which one is for you!

But Black Rock Shooter is only getting started now!
Next year in January there will be a TV anime of it on noitaminA!!


A few years ago I interviewed huke in a cafe in Akihabara… It didn’t seem like such a big thing at the time… but now…!!
Anyway, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛

Tsukki is still away on his trip to China! 

The Bramble is valiantly defending his desk, just like when Gakkun was away in China!! Although I do wonder how he managed to move between desks…


He seems a bit  busy at the moment though…
So I can grab this sample away from the desk!! 😀

And so today I’ll be taking a look at…

Black Gold Saw -animation version- !

She is of course one of the girls from the anime of Black Rock Shooter – she can be seen watching one of Black Rock Shooter’s battles in the movie. She is also the 3rd figure to join the 1/8th scale Black Rock Shooter -animation version- set of figures!


This is how she looks from the back!

Her outfit has a very similar design to BRS-chan – it even has that same famous star mark. At the moment we don’t really know exactly what their connection is, but I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough!


Isn’t she a beauty!

She has a more mature feeling when compared to the previously released BRS-chan and DM-chan figures. That upward glance is also wonderful – I makes my heart skip a beat every time I see those eyes!


A long angle between her hips and breast!

She definitely has much more of a bust when compared to BRS-chan. ^^;

But just as stunning as her bust is her stomach line!!!
There is so much skin visible as well! You can even see her pelvis bone!! It’s just so tempting!!


Incredible thighs! (Front)

They are so soft and slender, yet still have a nice padded feeling to them! I also love the way you can just see her socks sticking out the top of her boots here!


Incredible thighs! (Back)

Looking from the top like this you really get a feeling for how baggy her pants are – anyone who says this isn’t sexy needs to get their priorities straight! xD


Just like previous figures from the series, the stand features a diorama from the BRS world!

Golden Saw-san’s stand is covered in crumbling blocks and signs of a big battle taking place – which really suits the dynamic pose of the figure. The chains can all be attached easily by reading through the included instructions.


Beautiful, long flowing hair!

As if the pose itself didn’t give enough of a dynamic feeling, her hair adds even more of an impressive effect – it really feels like she’ll jump to life at any second. That view of her back is also incredibly sexy!


Her giant sword, ‘King Saw’!

A unique sword that is filled with sharp edges like a saw – it’s really huge and looks like it could cut through anything!! It is also covered in a number of scratches and dents – clearly a sign of all the battles Black Gold Saw has been in during the past!

The Hatsune Miku Good Smile BMW has come first in a major race!
A new set of personal sponsor courses are going to include a new figma to celebrate!
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-』

The racing team ‘GSR & Stsudie with TeamUKYO’ driving a Hatsune Miku itasha in the high speed ‘SUPER GT’ race has achieved it’s first win in the race that took place on the 18th/19th June at Malaysia’s Seven International Circuit.

Their First Win!

(It’s important enough to say twice!!)

It’s been three years now, but the Miku car has come far over time and has finally been able to win! It really brings a tear to my eye!!

A new figma will be available with all the personal sponsor courses to commemorate the victory! 

For more info be sure to check out the Good Smile Company official website: (Actual photos of the figma will be up shortly)

The famous BRS Curry sold at events…

We heard the fans voices, and so it has been changed into a pre-packaged sachet that can just be heated up and eaten – keeping the same unique taste of course!

Plus each packet of curry comes with a little charm!

One each of BRS-chan and DM-chan!


These are the two charms!

Look how BRS-chan has her spoon to her mouth ready to dive into the curry! It’s so cute! 😛

They’re quite small, but very detailed for their size!

They still look good even when I take a close-up picture like this one!


A closer look at the DM-chan charm!

Ah! DM-san! You’re drooling!! xD

The spoon DM-chan is holding seems slightly bigger than BRS-chan’s spoon!

It seems DM-chan is confident that she can more curry than BRS-chan 😛


This is how they look from the back!

Those round heads are so cute! And look at the tiny little wings on DM’s back!


Here we have the curry in its sachet!

There are two different options to get, but only the charm changes between them – the curry is the same in both sets. If you want both charms just grab both and then share the curry with a friend!


You simply warm it up in hot water!

Today’s photos are coming from the Good Smile Cafe! (which is actually a Madoka Cafe at the moment). A big thanks to the Cafe staff for taking time out of your busy schedule to let us use some of the kitchen!


BRS Curry!

The color of the photo didn’t come out great because of the lightin, but…

It has a more blackish color compared to other curry!

If you’re worried about the black color, then stop worrying!

The BRS Curry is made by Indotei!

Indotei is brushing up to be one of the most famous curry stores in Matsudo – they even recently featured in a magazine – there is no way their curry will not be delicious!


I made two servings!

The stuff on top of the rice is mayonnaise! The BRS Curry at events also had some mayonnaise on the top – it adds a nice little mild taste to the curry!

Although it’s also of course just as good without the mayonnaise. 😛


Lunch is served!

Here we have Megahara from the advertising team and Nagaizumi from the sales team (and the person in charge of the BRS curry product!) trying out the curry! I kinda want some myself too now… I should have made three…


Even though it’s pre-packaged there are nice big pieces of meat!

Plus it smells absolutely delicious! Just look at BRS-chan and DM-chan on the other side… they definitely want some for themselves! 😛


She is taking the first bite!

Well? Well? How is it?!

    ヽ     ノ 
   /      ヽ 

That’s it…?

Is what I thought at first, but she ate it so quickly after that, that she didn’t really need to say anymore…  😛


Nagaizumi’s turn to try some!

     / ̄ ̄\

   |   `i  i´  |     just how I like it. It tastes even better
   |   . `⌒   }      than it looks! Plus it’s filled with tender meat!”
   ヽ       } 
    ヽ     ノ 
   /      ヽ 

Oh, I see! That’s a much more fulfilling answer!

If it’s so good though then I will just have to have a bite myself!

It really is delicious!

Much better tasting than the normal pre-packaged curries!


All finished!

As Nagaizumi takes the same pose as the BRS-chan charm… 😛


BRS Curry and Charm Set!

A set of both will cost 2000JPY!

You may be thinking that it’s “too expensive for curry!”, but remember…

They each come with a charm as well!

I’m sure some people will even buy it for the charm, and get the curry an as extra. ^^;

There are two ways you can get hold of the curry and charm sets:
■ Reserve at Circle K Sunkus stores!


You’ll find a pamphlet titled ‘Karuwaza Online Select’ at the Circle K Sunkus stores – they are normally found lying around the ‘Karuwasa Station’ in the stores.

| | | ⌒ ーnnn        |\(⊆ソ |_|__________|
 ̄ \__、(“二) ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄l二二l二二  _|_|__|_

It’s a machine that looks a little bit like an ATM… if you can’t find it just ask in-store! If you open up that pamphlet you’ll find a page that features the BRS Curry and Charm set – just take note of the product number.

Make your pre-order at the Karuwasa Station, and pay at the register!

If you can’t find the pamphlet, you can also just trust me when I say that…

The product code is: 1106133!

Just input this number into the Karuwasa Station!
■ Internet Pre-order!


You can also order some from the ‘Karuwasa Online’ website!

Simply access the page below and add it to your cart and checkout – there is nothing easier!
■ Karuwasa Online:

The curry will only be sold at Circle K Sunkus stores!
There is also a limited stock, so get your orders in if you are interested!

Anyway, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!  (・∀・)ノ゛
