Today’s Updates

Trying to catch up a bit on sleep so I’ll keep this brief. See below for a list of newly available figure preorders – Play-Asia beats Japan to two new Yamato items! – along with a hot hot Horo:

Wafuudou Ganguten’s Kusugawa Sasara preorder open (updated)

Amazon does the honors this evening with the first preorder listing up for Wafuudou Ganguten’s Kusugawa Sasara PVC figure from To Heart 2. Wafuudou’s official site for the figure has been online for a little while now so we knew preorders were imminent; it seems shops were waiting until after Golden Week to make the listing, so now that things are back to business as usual we can expect listings to appear elsewhere shortly. She’s scheduled to retail in June at 6,980 yen (tax included), clocking in at 1/7 scale (19 cm tall), castoffable down to her lingerie and with a sculpt from Cerberus Project‘s Sunny Day. Update: image gallery below:

WHF Ariake 18: Lucky Star, Gurren Lagann, Vocaloid

The fervor surrounding Lucky Star, Gurren Lagann, and the Vocaloid virtual idol character Hatsune Miku (and now Kagamine Rin and Len) has continued strong since the summer of last year, and WHF Ariake 18 saw a fresh crop of kits emerge based on these popular franchises. We’ve got a round up of many of them below (and a few older ones as well), for your perusing pleasure:

Medio enters the dakimakura business

Via the Dakimakura Integrated Research Center: Based on user feedback solicited last September, online otaku goods shop Medio yesterday announced the first in what is to be a series of original dakimakura hug pillowcases from the brand: Ryouko-san no Moe Moe Haa Haa Dakimakura Cover. The case features original illustrations from Atelier Kaguya character designer Choco Chip of the popular Shirakawa Ryouko, who appeared in both the Anejiru and Nurse ni Omakase eroge. The pillowcase is double-sided, 160 x 50 cm in size, and is available for preorder now at 12,000 or 11,000 yen retail (depending on the fabric type desired). Release is expected on June 27th.

Eroanime brand Nihiki no Dozeu official site open

An official site was opened on Monday for eroanime brand Nihiki no Dozeu. The maker is the Anik subsidiary brand responsible for the production of the second episode of Sora no Iro, Mizu no Iro that we’ve been reporting on over the past month or so, and is apparently taking over operations from the Amour brand as well (Anik subsidiary Suzuki Mirano remains a discrete entity; their flagship brand Himajin closed in 2006). This is all very confusing but it seems the upshot is that we can keep an eye on this new site for current and upcoming news on Anik brand releases. The second Soramizu episode is still on target for its June 27th release. (no more)

Yujin does SR Sekirei gashapon set

Yujin updated their official figure blog last night (they have one?) with a post giving a teaser glimpse at two figures in their upcoming SR Sekirei gashapon capsule figure set. My first thought after seeing these was “and I thought Movic’s versions had a few issues”… Tsukiumi in particular seems to be suffering from a wasting disease around the eyes, but given that the entire set will probably be available for around 1,000 yen this might be something worth looking into for Sekirei fans. No word on a release timeframe, though the post hints they may try to have the set out in conjunction with the anime’s debut in July. (no more)
