E2046 GK Contest 2014

E2046 GK Contest 2014

E2046 is one of the popular online store for Anime and Figure fans and if you are staying with us, you probably heard some of the little stories we’ve talked about recently. E2046 has announced the 2014 GK Contest, a competition of painted model kits where fans around the world can join and win prizes. The contest includes three categories, Figure, Robot and Diorama. You can enter any or all of the categories which will require a separate work.

Ichijyou Manami

Ichijyou Manami

Today we’d like to bring the a nice figure exclusively from Hong Kong based online store E2046, the Ichijyou Manami from the Adult Manga Menkui! which was originally released by Orchidseed as a 1/7 PVC figure (which is NSFW). The version on E2046 is different and was created by the Gathering brand which focuses on bringing high quality hand-painted resin figures. You can read more about the Gathering brand on the official website.

Nendoroid Shimakaze from Kantai Collection

Nendoroid Shimakaze from Kantai Collection

We just talked about the announcement of new TV Anime of Kantai Collection (Combined Fleet Collection, or short for KanColle) coming summer next year, and guess most of the fans are happy about the news. Apart from the numerous fan arts and Doujinshi around the game, we are more than happier to learn that Good Smile Company is going to release an Nendoroid of Shimakaze, who is probably best known as an icon in the series.

Kuroyukihime Death by Embracing

Kuroyukihime Death by Embracing

As we are still wondering whether there will be a second season of TV Anime Accel World, Good Smile Company is going to release another new figure of Kuroyukihime. The pose is from the cover illustration of the 6th volume of the light novel. Don’t look quite good? Surprisingly, the 1/7 Kuroyukihime and the Black Lotus can be displayed separately or in one as the below image. When disconnected, Kuroyukihime is Ero, to an extend that it appears to be not a good idea to show you. The figure will be released in August for around 10800 JPY or $115 USD.

Asuna Nendoroid

Asuna Nendoroid

Knowing that most fans love TV Anime Sword Art Online, it would be a giant failure if we failed to mention the related figures of the series. Good Smile Company is going to bring up a new Nendoroid from the series and this time is, our female protagonist Asuna. The Nendoroid comes with several different face expressions, as well as accessories including swords and menu window. Also according to GSC, the Nendoroid of her boyfriend Kirito is also on the way.

Mirai Suenaga Nendoroid

Good Smile Company is about to release the next interesting product and the now the pre-order is available to the Nendoroid version of Mirai Suenaga, the mascot of Culture Japan (aka, Danny Choo). The Nendoroid comes with two different smiling expressions, together with the standard one based on Nao Shirahane’s illustration. The Nendoroid will be released in December 2012 and with a price tag of 4,000 yen.

Kuroyukihime Beach Queens

Kuroyukihime Beach Queens

Few may doubt Accel World was one of the best series of the Spring season, and with Sword Art Online which was written by the same author airing since April, we are having a really good Summer. We’ve seen some figures of the series recently and were happy to learn that WAVE was going to release another Kuroyukihime PVC figure early next year. Not the super nice body that you might expect but it is quite an attractive purple/black bikini that you seen in the recent episode.

Charlotte Dunois Bunny Style

Charlotte Dunois Bunny Style

Though not a big fan of Giga Harem Robot series Infinite Stratos, I do like the cute characters, especially Charlotte Dunois, one of the female protagonists. Kotobukiya is going to release the 1/7 Charlotte Dunois PVC figure dressing in Bunny girl costume. If you happened to notice Tomoyasu Kurashima, the illustrator of the series, has painted the bunny version of all the female protagonists, you may get an idea that this is only a start.

Kuroyukihime

Kuroyukihime

The Nendoroid of one of the cutest heroines of the season Kuroyukihime will be released by Good Smile Company in this September. Originally from April TV Anime Accel World, Kuroyukihime is the female protagonist of the series (except that we don’t know her real name). As a bundle, the lovely black butterfly dressed up Kuroyukihime and the little pig which is refers to as the most impossible hero across the Anime industry are included, and both characters are Avatars of original characters.

Inori Yuzuriha Nendoroid

Inori Yuzuriha Nendoroid

One of our favorite TV Anime series Guilty Crown ended last month, leaving us lots of questions unanswered. Shortly after the ending, we learned that there would be an short OVA of the series bringing us more insights into the background of the series, i.e., the story of Lost Christmas. One more thing that we know is, there will be tons of related goods of the series coming right around the corner, and today, let’s take a look at one of my favorite, the Nendoroid version of Inori Yuzuriha. From Good Smile Company, the Nendoroid will be available in July.
