Nendoroid Kokoro Akechi

“Just give me 30 minutes!!”

Is a conversation I have with the production team, or manufacturing team fairly often… luckily everyone is always super friendly and says I can use it quickly first… I’m quite glad for that, because if they said ‘Be quick, dammit!’ I’d probably end up with very blurry pictures. 😛


Today we’ll be taking a look at this Nendoroid:

Nendoroid Kokoro Akechi!

She is the super genius that attends Harvard university, and is a part of the mystery investigation team, ‘Genius 4’ (also known as G4).

She will be included with the PSP game,
‘Tantei Opera Milky Holmes 2’! (・∀・)ノ

Those who are watching the anime series will have seen the Bushiroad commercial that features the Kokoro Nendoroid!


Above you could see her smiling face, but she also has:

An upset face and golden mask!

Even when she is upset, she is still super cute! Plus her weapon, the golden mask, is also included! The mask looks incredibly realistic too… I was rather impressed. The bent arms can be rotated at the shoulders to pose her with her hands on her hips!


A snapped face and folded arms!

Oooh! What a wonderful choice of expression! This really shows off Kokoro’s real personality! 😛 I also somehow have this strange urge to put my finger in her mouth…

She is so cute that you just can’t help but tease her – it only makes her cuter… and she was already so cute to begin with!


A Segway and patrol light!

    /:::::::: ( ○)三(○)\  ”You said that Korkoro-chan…
    |::::::::::(__人__):::|    is included with the PSP game, right?”
     \:::::::   |r┬-|   ,/
    ノ:::::::  `ー’´   \

This extra that may make you wonder if it’s not rather from the anime…

This allows you to recreate the scene in the first season’s opening theme!

She also comes with hands to hold onto the handlebars! I wonder if other characters could ride the Segway as well…?


Elly decides to give it a go!

If you just move Kokoro’s hand parts onto Elly, she can ride on it just fine! Plus as you can see, the expressions are fully exchangeable! (Assuming there are no changes in production…)

The snapped expression has no eye color, so it’s very easy to stick onto other characters without looking too strange! Plus it’s just so cute!


“Don’t call me Kokoro-chan!”

Nendoroid Hercule Barton

    /:::::::: ( ○)三(○)\  ”W-What the?!”
     \::::::::   |r┬-|   /

Where did all the figures go!?

There were so many of them there yesterday!!

Ah, I know! They’ve all been taken to the Figure Maker Exhibition Event organized by GSC! Which means I have free reign over any of the figures that have been left here!! Whee!!


The 2nd Milky Holmes Nendoroid:

Nendoroid Hercule Barton!

She is from the popular anime ‘Tantei Opera Milky Holmes’, and is also known by her nickname, Elly!

I myself am a Milky Green fan!!

Whenever I go to a Milky Holmes live I make sure to have a green glowstick! 😛 Even at WonFes I took a quick break from work to run down to the Milky Holmes event on stage!


This is how she looks from the back!

Her long green detective outfit really has made it’s way into Nendoroid format perfectly – the lacing on the hems and the checkered design on the hat all look so adorable!


The hat can of course be removed!

She looks just as, if not even more cute without the hat!! The way her hair sticks out the sides is so cute!!

She also has hands that can be placed in front of her!
These are perfect for a sky looking pose, which is of course perfect for Elly! I’m so glad I can be with Elly all the time now! 😛

She comes with a crying expression!

This is the expression for whenever she has to use her ‘Toys’ ability! 😛 She also comes with a bent let arm, which can be used for a pose like this or can be used to hold her hat. Doesn’t the expression just make her look like a little angel?


Moving onto the optional parts!

Those who have seen the anime will know!

In episode 9, Elly gets possessed by her ancestor and ends up looking like this!

To seperate the different parts – there is a Poirot face, a kind of bald wig and a fat stomach part! 😛 I’m sure fans of the anime are glad for the extras, buy I’m also fairly sure that those who haven’t seen the anime must be somewhat confused by these extras. ^^;

But we’re not finished yet!


Elly has fallen over!!

You can make the embarrassing pose from episode 3!

Just for this pose a whole extra body is included! Apparently the person in charge of the figure was also a huge Elly fan! You can also attack the fallen over legs on the standard body – they just look more like bent legs that way.


Sharo tries on the bald wig!

It’s also rather strange how cute Elly still looks with just the Poirot face. 😛


The second Milky Holmes Nendoroid:

Nendoroid Hercule Barton!

She’ll be on the GSC tomorrow!

For preorder and sales information, please take a look at our partner shops.


Today, the 3rd August 2011, is the 10 year anniversary of the day that ‘Kimi ga Nozumu Eien’ (The Eternity you Desire) went on sale!


Happy Birthday!! Kiminozo is one of the games that almost any eroge players will know! It’s hard to think that it’s been 10 years since it went on sale!

It’s also the the 10th anniversary of Haruka Suzumiya’s voice actress, Minami Kuribayashi!

She is releasing a 10 year anniversary best album today, so dash out to your nearest CD store and grab it!

For those who don’t know, GSC is also in it’s 10th year at the moment! I’m glad we were able to share the 10th anniversary year with others!

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