Over the long weekend, I went to the Bonbori Festival with Oda-P!

Yep! Today’s figure has a load of wondrous optional parts! I almost wanted to start today’s blog with them, but I’ll start as normal – scroll down fast if you can’t wait! 😛

002

From Hanasaku Iroha:
Nendoroid Ohana Matsumae!

Her character designer is Meru Kishida, well known for his work on the Atelier series of games! Meru’s detailed character design has been shrunk down into adorable Nendoroid size!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

She is wearing the uniform she wears for her work at Kissuisou – the Japanese inn that she started to work at. The apron, ribbon, socks and even geta shoes are all very detailed even as a Nendoroid! As a side note… Oda-P seem s to be in charge of loads of characters in kimonos at the moment. ^^;

004

Let’s move onto the optional parts!

First up is a determined expression!

A perfect expression for the honest and frank Ohana-chan! Working as hard as she can, even when she is new to the work!

She also has trays with legs for the customers at the inn!

These are of course the trays she used to carry food to those staying at the inn – and she even comes with two, stacked up on each other! You could probably place all sorts of things on the tray for an even more convincing rendition!

006

Next up is a surprised expression!

Ohana has all sorts of expressions in the series – so it’s nice to have some variety on the Nendoroid as well! Both the shoulder area and the area where her bare arms start are posable, allowing for all kinds of poses!

007

A wooden broom and arms to hold it!

Once she has finished carrying the food t all the customers, she needs to head to the entrance and clean up a bit… it seems she has come across a rather peculiar looking animal though. (Kyubey isn’t included! ^^;)

The extra parts that come with Ohana-chan are really nice big things like the trays and broom, it’s fun to play around with them!

008

A Blue Heron!

       / ̄ ̄ ̄\

    /  <○>   <○>  \   Is that from the Dokidoki Animal Series?”
    |   (__人__) し |
    \    |r┬-|    /
    /  し  `ー’´     \

Not this time! The Blue Heron is included as well!

Ohana meets with this giant bird on the way to Kissuisou’s rival inn, Fukuya. She really isn’t good with dealing with this particular bird!! The gradient used on the wings is really beautiful… plus it is really posed in a menacing pose which is perfect for the series! 😛

And finally…!!

We’ve already seen so many amazing parts… but this next one is quite different to normal. Of all the Nendoroids that have been made… I never expected parts like these! xD

009

A Bondage Body!

Those who have not seen the series might be wondering just what Good Smile gets up to in their spare time… 😛 I don’t want to spoil too much from the series, but let’s just say that she ends up like this in a scene from the third episode in the series – and these parts let you recreate that scene!

She even comes with the mouth gag!!

Which can also be removed, of course. I was quite amazed to see the permission to make these parts come out! ^^;

010

This is how it looks from the back!

Looking from this angle, experts might point out that the tying isn’t done correctly – but even in the series the line “I just can’t get it right” came up. You have to be impressed that he at least tried it, right? 😛 I can’t wait to use these parts with some other figures… ^^;

Tomorrow is the start of another long weekend!

001

In preparation for the long weekend, everyone at GSC is hard at work to finish everything up! Amongst all the work, I spotted this interesting looking box on the design team boss’ desk!

That Momoclo photo on display is definitely rather interesting… but I think I’ll steal the box first, I can’t wait to see what is inside!

003

Inside was of course this lovely figure!

Cheerful JAPAN! Part 6:
Nendoroid KAITO: Cheerful Ver.!

As I’m sure a lot of you may have figured it out already, but this is effectively a KAITO resale – he is coming back as a Cheerful! version!

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!

Cheerful JAPAN!
http://www.cheerfuljapan.com/

For each figure sold, Good Smile will donate 1000JPY to aid relief efforts!

002

This is the original Nendoroid KAITO!

The Cheerful version includes all the expressions and optional parts that the original had!
The original KAITO was Nendoroid No. 58, he was first released in 2009/02! I can’t believe it was a year and a half ago that it first came out!

004

This is how he looks from the back!

KAITO’s trademark scarf looks so cute in Nendoroid form! You can also turn the scarf to the front if you prefer!

005

His lovely smiling expression!!

How much of my heart can you possibly steal, KAITO!!!? You’re just too adorable! I’m sure everyone who already has KAITO has loved using this expression with loads of other Nendoroids as well!

Plus, KAITO has to come with an ice cream!

It’s not an official thing, but KAITO has definitely become well known for his love of ice cream! He also of course comes with arm parts that let him hold it!
006

Plus the impressive, ‘Hero Expression’!!

A very different expression to the smiling face above, but this is also an expression that just can’t be left out! Parts to recreate the Hero pose are also included!

007

Now lets move onto the Cheerful Ver. parts!
First is a brand new cheering uniform!

As you can see, the body has had a complete makeover for the Cheerful version!
The idea behind this was from Oono, and handled by Sacchan – the newbies at GSC are really doing wonderful things!!

All the female Cheerful versions have had cheerleader outfits, so this is definitely what KAITO needed to blend in with them!

008

This is how he looks from the back!

KAITO’s image color is of course the lovely blue, so a blue cord is tied onto his back! The orange armband is also a lovely touch!
013

Let’s move onto the optional parts!

Pompons are included as with all Cheerful versions!
His pompons are a lovely bright blue – very suiting for KAITO!

They connect the same way as Cheerful Miku, Rin and Len – with a stub that connects to the arm! I know some people think pompons are girly, so that’s why I decided to give them to Miku instead. 😛
010

He also comes with folding fans!

You can have him hold both of them and he really looks ready to cheer on for everyone! I’d be glad to do my very best if I had KAITO cheering for me!

The hands for holding the fans are wearing white gloves!
There are standard hands as well, so there are all sorts of ways to pose him!

011

On the reverse side of the fans is the Japanese flag!

It’s been seven months since the disaster, but Japan is still far from what it was before the disaster… there are lots of people who are still having a very hard time. The Cheerful project has been going for a good six months now, and hopefully it has brought some smiles to the people who need it most.

012

He also comes with a head band!

The headband needs to be tied yourself (double-sided tape works too), and it really adds even more to the cheering atmosphere!

He also has these cheering hands!
Both arms are lifted up into the air!

009

Miku decided to try on KAITO’s outfit!

It’s just way too cute!!

It’s really, really amazing! I love the standard Miku, but when I saw this my heart just melted! I never thought a girl would look so great in guy’s clothing… 😛

Aki-san leaning forward on the table during a meeting!
What could be so important that it would warrant him climbing on the desk??

001

And next to him I see a master figure’s box!

Last week I didn’t get to play with a single figure, but this week I’ll be be taking a look at a lot to make up!

002

Starting off with this one!

Nendoroid Nymph!

From the popular anime that is about to hit the cinemas with ‘Sora no Otoshimono’ comes a Nendoroid of the Electronic Warfare Angeloid, Type Beta – Nymph.

The second Nendoroid from the series, following on from last month’s Ikaros!

And what a wonderfully lascivious outfit she is wearing!!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

Her wings are made from clear blue plastic, and just like Nendoroid Ikaros, they can move up and down!

Also take note of the tiny little slits at the bottom of her mantle – such fine detail!
004

The mantle can be removed!

       / ̄ ̄ ̄\
     / ─    ─  \    ”Is she wearing any?
    /  <○>  <○>  \.    Well? Tell me!!”
    |   (__人__) し |  
    \    ` ⌒´    / 
    /  し          \

No other Nendoroid has had so many slits is such revealing places…

I’m not going to show you more than this – you’ll have to check yourself!

Mikatan blog has a magical barrier blocking any photos under skirts!

005

She comes with an upset expression!

Nymph is well known for her sudden mood changes, so this had to be included – the bright red cheeks trying to hide her embarrassment are so adorable!

That bent right arm suits the expression so well!

Was anyone wondering where the wings went for this photo? Did you think I forgot to attach them?! Don’t be silly, there is no way I’d forget! 😛

006

She also comes with her cut wings!

Nymph’s wings were cut off by a harpy in the first season, so this allows you to recreate her after that time! To include extra options like this… once again we are seeing Take-chan’s love for the series that me makes figures of!

007

A different bent right arm!

This one allows you to recreate this pose with her hand placed near her mouth, giving you another option when displaying her in tsundere mode!

But seriously… that expression is just too cute!! Σ(゚∀゚*)

008

Of course she also comes with this expression!

A chibi face, potato chips and arms to hold them!

Nymph was always carrying those around with her and munching on them! Just looking at her like this makes me feel all happy inside!

009

 
Displayed with Ikaros!

゚ | ・  | .+o   ____* o。 |。|   *。 |
゚ |i    | +   /_ノ ‘ ヽ_\   | |!    |
o。!    |! ゚o /  (≡)   (≡) \   | * ゚ |
  。*゚  l ・/::::⌒(__人__)⌒::\ |o  ゚。・    
 *o゚ |! |      |r┬-|     |  + *|

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

It’s too much! It’s just too cute!
If anyone could call this not cute then they couldn’t possibly find anything that is cute!

001

Mori from the planning department looks so refreshed with his new hair cut!

I must say that the two Nendoroids in the background as well as that strange green mask are definitely grabbing my attention… but today’s review is of course not about them, it’s about the Nendoroid in Mori’s hands!

003

Nendoroid Totori!

Totori is from the popular role-playing game “Atelier Totori: Alchemist of Arland 2” – her full name is actually Totoria Helmont, the young alchemist who is traveling the world in search of her missing mother.

A figure of Meru Kishida’s beautiful illustration! ((゚Д゚))

The beautiful translucent color from the illustration has been preserved by using clear plastic parts!

002

This is how the packaging looks!

As you can see it is loaded with loads of extras for us to take a look at! Be careful when you open it up that none of the small parts bounce out and go missing!

004

This is how she looks from the back!

She makes use of the arm stand, which connects into her hair rather than her back. A part of the hair can be removed allowing you to replace it with a version without the hole for the arm – in case you want to display her without the stand.

005

Let’s move onto the optional parts!

A crying face, plus red and blue test tubes!

This crying face was used in one of the key illustrations for the game – and you can even recreate the same pose from the illustration. (If you do a Google search for ‘トトリのアトリエ‘ it’ll be the second picture that pops up). The red and blue test tubes also make use of clear plastic for a really nice and detailed-looking effect!

006

An energetic smiling face!

That is one expression just packed with happiness!! Just by looking at it I feel like I can get through anything….

Plus the flask in her right hand has measurements on it!

Unfortunately they’re on the other side of this photo – but do take a closer look if you decide to grab her!

007

She also comes with some ‘flamm’!

This is an item that you made using alchemy in the game – it’s something like a bomb. She also comes with right arms that stretch out horizontally as above!

You can use these arms with the flask to recreate yet another one of the game’s key illustrations!

When her arms are out like that it gives a kind of dynamic feeling to the figure! It’s so nice to have so many useful optional parts to play with!

008

But we’re not done yet…

Sitting parts plus a different ribbon!

She comes with a whole extra lower body to place her in a sitting pose like this one – she also comes with a different ribbon for her back to suit the sitting pose!

010

Magical Girl transformation!

As with most Nendoroids – the expressions and parts can be switched around for some more fun! Pick your favorite Nendoroid and give them a little makeover – as you can see her headband can also be removed! (although the two parts of it are stuck together).
009

The ‘Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai’ novels!!

Also known by it’s official nickname ‘Wa ga nai’, the novel is written by Yomi Hirasawa and illustrated by Buriki!

The novel series has just passed it’s 200 thousand sales mark – it’s hugely popular at the moment!! If you do a search for ‘Wa ga nai’ (well… “はがない” in Japanese) in twitter, you’ll see just how popular it is by the speed that the timeline updates – it’s incredible!

002

This is the 6th volume, which was released this month!

Ooh! There are indeed two!

The left is a special edition with a drama CD included, the right is the normal version!

The front cover of the special edition features an illustration of Sena while the normal version has Yozora – fans of the series will want to grab both just for that!
 
 

Then we come to the striking pink text!

“TV Anime Announced!”

Although I’m sure many of you already knew, as it was announced on the 18th of May in Asahi and Yomiuri newspapers. ^^;

But when is it going to start!!?

 
I decided to take a look around for the dates, but it seems they are not decided as of yet… but they do have a very interesting cast list up on the official website!

-Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Official Site-
http://www.mediafactory.co.jp/bunkoj/rinjinbu/

The top page of the site is really something to behold… those of you who understand Japanese can take a look and enjoy the joke on the top page… just mouse over the notice and read the characters that appear.

Anyway, I’m sure a lot of you are wondering why this is appearing on the blog! And the reason is this!

003

Yozora Mikadzuki and Sena Kashiwazaki…

Nendoroids are incoming!!

Yep, really!

The planning for the figures is to be done by Otakana, who has been dying to do figures from the series – when the anime announcement was made he jumped at the chance and is now super happy that there will be figures! 😛

That’s all the info I have for now, but I will continue my stalking and let you know if I find out more! Those of you who just can’t wait might want to bookmark the following site… 😉

How naughty of you, Take-chan!
But you’re welcome to carry on… as soon as I’ve had a chance to play with her!

005
Thus today I’ll be taking a look at this adorable little Nendoroid that was on display at the Good Smile 10th anniversary party!

Nendoroid Ikaros!

She is Battle Angeloid Type Alpha from the anime series ‘Sora no Otoshimono’, which is getting a film version very soon!
She has a lot of bare skin – quite rare for Nendos!!

006

This is how she looks from the back!

Her huge white angel wings are fitted with little joints which let them move up and down. The ribbons floating around her hair have also been sculpted ever so cutely!

008

Her shoulder armor can be removed!

Oooh! This way you can enjoy even more beautiful bare skin!! The blank expression on her face is also so perfectly suited to her personality – it’s so cute!

009
Let’s take a look at her other expressions!
First up is the chibi face!
 
The chibi versions of all the characters are definitely an important part of the Sora no Otoshimono series – and this expression lets you recreate the expression used by the chibi Ikaros!

She also comes with chibi wings!

010

 She also comes with… a watermelon!

Watermelons are Ikaros absolute favorite food, so the Nendoroid just had to have one too! She even comes with arm parts that allow her to hug it like she always did in the series!

003

Uranus Queen Mode!

The combat mode of Ikaros from the final episode is also included!
The wings of this version are made from clear plastic with a very slight gradiant effect – they’re very pretty! You can replace them with the normal wings whenever you wish!

Plus that expressionless red-eyed face!

002

The ultimate weapon, APOLLON!

Look at the incredible sculpting done on this extra! It’s made using 3D data, so it has absolutely perfect symmetry left and right – it really looks amazing!

Arms to hold it are also of course included!

004

It can also shoot leeks! 😛

By just switching the hand parts you can let any other Nendoroid hold it as well!

011

Panties Collection!

I’m sorry! I really tried, but I just couldn’t get them to fly properly…
If you decide to pick her up, be sure to try yourself and send in your attempts!!

Oh… and the panties aren’t included with the Nendoroid – those were collected up myself. 😛

He always keeps some aside for me like this! How can I ever repay you, Koyamada!!

Today I’ll be taking a look at:

Nendoroid Nemu Asakura!

Nemu is the main heroine in the romance adventure game ‘D.C ~Da. Capo~’, which was recently also released on PSP!


026

This is how the packaging looks!

A total of three expressions.  (・∀・)ノ

She also comes with the Da Capo mascot ‘Utamaru’ and a bunch of extra arm parts!


028

This is how she looks from the back!

The trademark yellow ribbon in her hair can be moved backwards and forwards!

As you can see, Nemu makes use of the popular ‘arm-type’ stand!

029

Onto the optional parts!

A bent left arm, a pointing hand and her school bag!

This set of parts recreates the atmosphere of Nemu heading toward school! She also comes with the D.C. mascot, Utamaru…. and even though he is absolutely tiny, his neck is still posable!


030

A blushing, smiling face!

It’s a little boastful for me to say it… but I really think I got this posing and photo perfect! Don’t you think it looks adorable?!
This pose also uses a different bent left arm, which creates a nice embarrassed looking pose like this one! You can also pose her combing her hand through her hair by twisting the left arm upwards!


031

The AFTER BANANA Face!

This is the face Nemu has in the mini game called ‘AFTER BANANA’. This is an expression for the fans! ^^


032

It also suits other characters quite well!

Even Utamaru comes with an extra expression!

He comes with an extra face eating a fish!

033
Nendoroid Number 140!

The box is decorated in true D.C style with cute spring colors!

It’s finally Spring!!

April is here, which means a new anime season is upon us!

035
I got the chance to visit the dubbing session for the upcoming anime ‘DOG DAYS’, which is made by the same team that did Lyrical Nanoha!

Animation is done by Seven Arcs with original work and scenario created by Masaki Tsuzuki! It’s the perfect team for a great anime!

Not to mention that I even managed to get some comments from some of the cast!

 Mamoru Miyano playing the role of Shinku Izumi
Yui Horie playing the role of Millhiore. F. Viscotti

Thank you for finding the time during your busy schedule!!

While playing your characters, what parts of the characters have you found the most interesting?

Miyano
Shinku is a 13 year old middle school student, but when I’m voicing him I was told I should worry less about the age and should focus more on speaking with spirit. He has a really strong will and it’s conveyed through his words very nicely.Personally I also like the fact that he is portrayed as a real ‘hero’ should be. When something needs to be done, he does it, and he has the typical hero characteristic of wanting to protect others. I think that straight appeal as a hero is a great point to him.

On the other hand, he is also a little clumsy, and has his fair share of scenes such as bumping into Eclair or peeping in on the princess while she is bathing, or accidentally ripping Eclair’s clothes…. on that end that clumsiness is fairly fun as well. All in all I’m certain he is a character everyone will enjoy watching!

  Horie
Millhi-chan has a very pure and gentle personality which I find very cute. Whenever the team wins a battle she sometimes bursts out in song, which I think is a very appealing part of her character. I’m sure if there was a concert for her she would be singing for everyone.

 

Thank you for your wonderful comments…! (´;ω;`)

Really, thank you so much! I want to bow down in thanks in front of my monitor… I know you are both very busy!!
