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!

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

 
Me:
“O-ok…?”
(´□`;)

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!!

001
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!

002
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!

003
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・´)

004
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`*)

005
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`*)

006
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! (*´∀`)

008

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… (*>▽<)

009

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!!

The famous BRS Curry sold at events…

01

Is soon to be available to try at home!

       ___

   /  _ノ  ヽ、_  \   ”It’s depressing that you can
  /  o゚⌒   ⌒゚o  \      only get it at events!”
  |     (__人__)  |
  \     ` ⌒´     /
  ノ            \

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!

04

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!

05

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 😛

06

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!

03

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!

07

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!

08

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!

  ヽ::::::::___,ノγ⌒ヽ)ニニ- ̄   | |  |

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!

09

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. 😛

11

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…

10

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! 😛

12

She is taking the first bite!

Well? Well? How is it?!

     / ̄ ̄\
   / .ー  ー \ ← Megahara
   |  (≡) (≡) |  
   |  (__人__)|    ”Ooh! It’s really good!”
   |   `i  i´  | 
   |   . `⌒   }      
   ヽ       } 
    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…  😛

13

Nagaizumi’s turn to try some!

     / ̄ ̄\
   / .\  / \ ← Nagaizumi
   | (ー) (ー) |  
   |  (__人__) |   ”It’s not too spicy and not too bland –
   |   `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!

14

All finished!

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

01


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!

15

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.

        ____

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!

16

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:
http://karuwazaonline.jp/pc/00000003/goods/16898/


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゛

Hi everyone.

Good Smile is doing there utmost to keep releases and announcements up to date, but things like transportation problems may get in the way, so bear with us if some things get delayed!


001

Of course, I’m trying to keep the blog up to date too!

In the hopes that I can bring a smile to everyone who reads it!


003

That said, let’s move onto today’s figure review!
The 4th Nendoroid in the BRS series:

Nendoroid Strength!

Strength is a mysterious character that featured very briefly in the Black Rock Shooter anime – she was watching over one of Black Rock Shooter’s fights. Just like the previous Nendoroids from the Black Rock Shooter series, she also comes with a huge weapon! This time some very unique weapon at that!!


004

This is how she looks from the back!

If you look at the bottom you’ll notice she also has a little tail! Does anyone remember the tail…? ^^

It’s also a posable little tail, so you can swivel it around a bit so it suits whatever pose you need.


007

Her weapons are giant mechanical arms!

They are called ‘Ogre Arms’. They look super cute in Nendoroid form, and really make her noticeable.


005

Plus they are fully posable!!
 
There are joints on the elbows and all of the fingers! They really move around however you need them to!

       ___
     / ⌒  ⌒\
    /  (○)  (○) \   “You’ve outdone yourselves!
  /  ///(__人__)// \    …I can’t wait to try it!!”
  |       `Y⌒y’´    |
   \      ゛ー ′   /
    /      ー‐  ィ


002

Now let’s take a look at the optional parts!

Lifted shoulders and bent legs!

A separate set of shoulder parts lets you pose her with her arms more extended out. The Ogre Arm itself is also really posable so the combination of the two let you take all sorts of different poses.

The figure also makes use of the same stand as the previous BRS Nendoroids – a checkered base with a posable arm, which allows you to pose Strength is dynamic mid-air poses like the one above!
006

She also comes with normal arms!

As I mentioned above the Ogre Arm really makes her super noticeable… but without it she becomes super adorable!
 
It would probably also be interesting to attach just one of the Ogre Arms and let the other one stay as a normal arm. (Although I only thought of that after taking all the photos.. ;_;)


008

It wouldn’t be a BRS Nendoroid without…

The famous CHANxCO Face!
There are even extra parts to recreate the CHANxCO pose!

The new expression, new hair parts, new arms and even an extra lower body!

000

This is the original illustration!

The illustration was drawn by CHANxCO specially for the release of Nendoroid Black Gold Saw!

You’ll just have to enjoy a picture of these three instead… They’re so cute!!

Black Rock Shooter started off as a single illustration… but look at all it has become now!

018
This was when I was interviewing huke in Akiba…!

I can’t believe it’s already been 2 years since that! I’m sure you’ve heard, there is currently a Black Rock Shooter game in development…<

But that’s not all!

Today I’ll be taking a look at the most recent developments to the BRS world!


★ Puchitto Rock Shooter
 This is a NicoNico App, which is basically a browser-based game!

I’ve been interested in this ever since Mikage-shachou announced this at the JRPG Action Meeting!!

001

This is the title screen!

     ____
   /      \ 
  /  \   ,_ \     “Hmm… this looks familiar…”
/     (●)゛ (●) \
|  ∪   (__人__) |  
/     ∩ノ ⊃  /
(  \ / _ノ |  |  

You might very well recognize the designs, as they are done by CHANxCO – also known for her Nendoroid expressions! It’s going to be great fun to have such cute designs in a game!


017

You can find the application by using this button on NicoNico!

You can also find it directly on the NicoNico app page: http://app.nicovideo.jp/


003

But what kind of game is it?

You are a bounty hunter that wanders the universe in search of rare bounties. Having heard of the rumor of the ‘Great Purattorian, who will grant all the wishes of the one bound to her, you find yourself traveling to Planet Puratto and starting a new adventure in search of such wonders. The rarest of resources on Planet Puratto are in fact the people of the planet – the Purattorians… so as you collect more of them you will receive rare and powerful items. You can also trade or steal the Purattorians from other players, allowing you to get hold of them much faster.

Ah, I see!! So that thing above is a Purattorian! I need to catch him!


002

As I catch more of them I get items like these!

You get a whole bunch of cute cosplay items to dress up in as well! ^^


006

Who is this!?

A character made by another player…? Can I become friends…? You can also trade Purattorians (or steal them) from other players to collect them faster!!


004

There are baddies as well?!

Oooh! How will the battle turn out!?


005

Darn… I lost… 😦

          ____

007

W-Who is this sexy lady!!?

Apparently this is the Great Purattorian that will grant all the wishes of the one that is bound to her! Now I just need to find out what the heck it means to be bound to her!

But you’ll have to find that out for yourself…

Puratto Rock Shooter

You can start playing from the 9th March!

You might think so, but that’s really not the case! GSC was only involved in the final confirmation of the products so we had no real say on the release dates… it really was pure coincidence!

A PSP game, a browser game, a manga adaption…. Black Rock Shooter continues to expand more and more! (・∀・)ノ
 
 
I can’t wait to see what is coming up next!
 
 
But… that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow! (・∀・)ノ゛

Today we’ll be starting the WonFes figure reviews with this cute pair!

Nendoroid Petite: Mato & Yomi Set!

The two girls are Mato Kuroi and Yomi Takanashi from Black Rock Shooter.

003

This is how the packaging looks!

These two don’t come with any optional parts, but there is a base for them hidden at the bottom there. I’ll go into more detail about the base a little later.

004

Mato Kuroi and Yomi Takanashi!

Takanashi’s name is very clever in Japanese – the kanji for her name mean ‘Small’, ‘ Bird’ and Playing’. But ‘Takanashi’ also means ‘No hawk’, because small birds will only play where there is no hawk around!

The energetic Mato and the refined Yomi both manage to keep their personalities and look adorable in Nendo form!

That little gap that let’s you see Mato’s waist is priceless!!

005

This is how they look from the back!

They use the usual stands for Nendoroid Petites with a prong to push into their backs. Mato’s twintails are fitted on an axis so you can move them up and down! It’s so cute!

006

A special diorama base for the girls!

Oooh! The road they walked on!! ((((゚Д゚)))

If you choose to display them on this base it’ll make them look as if they are walking to school together!

007

They look so happy!!

So cute!!

000

The poses are based on this illustration!
It’s a really stunning scene that really captures the two of them nicely!

It’s impressive how similar the figures are to the illustration!

008

Displayed with Nendoroid Petite: BRS Set!

These two were extras with the BLACK★ROCK SHOOTER Blu-ray & DVD Set (Limited Edition).

The two bases are both the exact same size so they look really nice together!

Seeing all four of them together at once really stirs up my emotions!! (´;ω;`)

009

You can put other expressions on them!

(Although expressions from some products might not fit them.)

This expression comes from the Nendoroid Petite Fate/stay night set’s ‘Saber Lion’ Nendo! This is an incredible level of cuteness… it’s like I could forget all the bad things in the world just by looking at the two of them like this…

010

Let’s change her into Miku!

For those of you who are too lazy to exchange the expressions, you can take the easy way out and just exchange heads entirely!

If you have a lot of Nendo Petites then there are so many weird and wonderful combinations you can make!

011

I hope you all enjoyed New Year’s Day!

Just a few days ago I finally managed to reach the higher level of the assembly hall in Monster Hunter! I got so absorbed in the game that at one stage while I was walking down the street I swear I saw people throwing paint balls at me…

But that’s enough about me…

It’s time to get this blog started once again for the new year!

I hope that everyone has a great 2011 ahead of them!!

 the very first figure of 2011 is right here!

And it’s not wooser!!

Black Gold Saw -animation version-

It’s a 1/8th scale PVC figure of the mysterious character that appeared at the very start of the Black Rock Shooter anime… locked in combat with Black Rock Shooter herself!

The sculptor for the figure is Ken Kawanishi, the same sculptor that did both the BRS and Dead Master animation version figures, so the series really looks great together.

Let’s take a look from another angle!

The contrast of her black outfit with her white skin is stunning!

Her stylish boots go all the way up to her knees!

She has much more of a mature atmosphere when compared to BRS and Dead Master.

Isn’t she beautiful!?

The relaxed expression across her face gives her a nice sexy feeling as well!

This is how she looks from the side!

 ノ            \

Whilst the -original version- focused on a more calm pose, the -animation version- has a much more dynamic pose!

Plus for a 1/8th scale figure, it really has an impressive size!

Her sword, ‘King Saw’!

This was the saw-like sword she was wielding when she battled against BRS-chan! If you look carefully you can also see all the small little scratches and dirt marks from all of her previous battles!

Her sexy stomach and lowcut shorts!

The sculpting really makes the skin look so smooth!

I also really like the shape of the ribs you can just see beneath her breasts!!

And those little gaps between her clothes and skin…!!

I already mentioned it on twitter, but I think those gaps have a special kind of energy that enthralls people… I almost can’t resist trying to stick my finger into them…!!

Don’t do it! Bad Hand!

Unusually large for a character designed by huke!

BRS might have been a flat-chest, but Gold Saw definitely has something to boast about!

Either way, they both have their own charms to enjoy!

A stand that brings the BRS world alive!

As with all the other figures in the series, a very unique stand is included to set the stage of the BRS world.

This time you can see the floor is covered in broken up into smaller rocks with chains suspended in the air. It adds even more to the dynamic feeling of the figure!

Figure stands really are starting to look better and better!
