Figure News: Clalaclan and Fasalina released, Didii up at Play Asia, release schedule updated

Just a quick note that Max Factory’s Fasalina PVC from Gun x Sword [Play Asia] and Kotobukiya’s Clalaclan Phileas from Shining Wind [Play Asia] both went on sale today, and that if you were on the fence I’d recommend prompt action as they’re both looking like items hot enough to disappear from store shelves with alarming rapidity. Reviews of both will be up at HD in the next day or two. In other news, Hobby Japan mail order limited [ERO] Jingai Makyou Didii PVC is currently available for preorder at Play Asia as well, as is the recently announced Kuro no Franco from Zoku: Satsuriku no Jango. These listings and more have all been gathered on the newly updated HD release schedule page for your reference and perusal! Clalaclan and Fasalina preview pictures below:

Eromanga Toshokan vol. 007: Happiness!

In today’s edition of our stroll down eromanga lane we take a look at the most recent work* from Amatarou, an artist who is tenacious in his pursuit of the awesome. I hope you’ll agree that “Happiness!” in the title is not mere hyperbole, and while reading this review might not make you a better person it will certainly uplift your spirits (or something else). 18+ ONLY, NWS.

Manga News: Hatsune Miku manga announced, to begin serialization in November

According to Moon Phase Diary a manga featuring Yamaha’s virtual idol Hatsune Miku will begin serialization in the January 2008 issue of Comic RUSH (on sale November 26th), and will be penned by Miku character designer KEI. I haven’t done much Miku reporting (Zepy‘s the man to go for for up to the minute news on everyone’s favorite voice synth) but this is a great development in my book; too often characters are poorly interpreted by mangaka other than the original creator, but with her designer on board for the project I’d say Miku is in safe hands.

[ERO] Figure News: Atelier-Sai’s Mahou Senshi Sweet Knights 2 action figures in limited edition castoff

GA Graphic brings the scoop today that Atelier-Sai is producing a castoff limited edition of their Sweet Lip, Sweet Kiss and Sweet Passion action figures, heroines of Triangle’s 2004 eroge Mahou Senshi Sweet Knights 2 (Erogamescape). The post contains no information about where the limited edition versions can be obtained, though it does list them as up for sale in “fall 2007” at 6,300 yen each. For 16 cm tall action figures that seems a bit steep, even if they are [ERO]; at typical Atsai quality and with the weird action figure seam beneath the bust line it seems these will be easy to write off unless they hit the bargain bin, alas.
