Today’s Updates

It seems Moon Phase found some time this evening to make a short update, which yielded some great news you’ll find below along some other random items scavenged from the depths:

Aoshima’s Funny Knights Shinobu-chan details

News from the Shizuoka Hobby Show is still trickling in, and Hobby Stock brings the goods tonight on the newest entry in hobby maker Aoshima‘s “Funny Knights” PVC series. Their Masterpiece of Kuuchuu Yousai Ninja no Shinobu-chan Mashiro no Bouken No. 01 Shinobu-chan (we’ll call her “Shinobu-chan”) is scheduled for release in July at 1/7 scale, 18 cm tall, with a retail price of 7,140 yen. The supposed source of the figure (“Ninja no Shinobu-chan Mashiro no Bouken”) doesn’t actually exist, and Shinobu-chan is an original character invented by Kuuchuu Yousai for figure incarnation here. The only information lacking from her description is the sculptor and castoff potential, but given the July release date we’ll be on the lookout for preorders to appear soon with the complete scoop.

May 16th eroge release roundup

A light showing on the eroge front this weekend after last week’s complete lack of releases. The four games on the table today are all budget titles, with heroines ranging from kimono-clad katana wielding girls to housewives in bondage, to android maids and futanari cheerleaders – a surprisingly broad range for just four titles, and we’ve got the details below:

Ore no Yome #2 is Tsuyokiss’s Yashi Nagomi

Figure maker Pleasant Angels continues their recently launched Ore no Yome PVC series (begun with Koihime Musou‘s Chouun, HD review pending) with the new listing today at Digitamin of Yashi Nagomi from Candy Soft’s genre-defining eroge Tsuyokiss. She’s scheduled for release in July at 6,090 yen and 1/8 scale (height unlisted), castoffable with a shirt made from “soft material”. Sculptor information is currently unknown. Note that the figure pictured below is the Irisawa limited version, not the standard color release:

Alpha Omega does To Love-Ru’s Lala

The official anime website for romantic comedy franchise To Love-Ru updated its goods section today with a listing for a new Lala Satalin Deviluke figure from Megahouse / Alter collaboration brand Alpha Omega. She’s scheduled for release in September at 1/8 scale and an as-yet undisclosed price, with a sculpt from Alter regular Yagyuu Satoshi. The single currently available figure image is below:

47th annual Shizuoka Hobby Show (updated)

The 47th Shizuoka Hobby Show begins today! While primarily oriented toward plamo kits, radio-controlled cars, train models and the like, the show also has a minor contingent of bishoujo figure representation as well (Kotobukiya has already announced a Kizaki Emi PVC from Kurogane no Linebarrels, set to retail at 6,090 yen – can’t tell anything else from that photo, alas). From the exhibitors’ list it seems Kotobukiya, Bandai, and Yujin are the ones to look out for; slim pickings, but we’ll update this post throughout the day with any news we find from the event. Update: a collected summary of Shizuoka Hobby Show coverage can be found below:
