Shining figure update

The official Shining Series figure blog updated with news this evening that following Clalaclan Noir Kotobukiya will be releasing Shining Wind’s Ryuuna in PVC form, and the post includes a teaser shot of her prototype from behind as evidence. This will be the 9th figure in Kotobukiya’s Shining lineup, and tonight’s blog post indicates that at least three more are planned from the maker. In other Shining news, the “soft body” Xecty from Wave that we’ve been watching for the past several months will be unveiled at their official site at 11:00 AM on the morning of June 11th, according to very strong hints in this post. We’ll keep an eye out for preorders to appear over the noon hour on Wednesday. (no more)

Daiki Kougyou launches “Real Arrange” line

Moeyo! Akibajin Blog brings the news today that figure maker Daiki Kougyou is beginning a new line of fixed-pose completed PVC models they’re calling Real Arrange, based on the theme of more photo-realistic takes on 2D characters. The first entry in the lineup is a figure we’ve had our eye on since it debuted at WHF Ariake 17 last winter, sculptor D-Kura’s (diskvision) Kanu Unchou.

The kit generated some criticism back it was initially posted, and Moeyo’s review of the prototype is likely only to fan the flames (it looks like they crossed her face with a really heavily made-up Johnny Depp), but I for one am excited about the prospect of seeing yet another hot (to my eyes) Kanu from a significant newcomer to the PVC scene. She’s scheduled for release in October at 1/6 scale (21 cm from head to toe, 25 cm to her fingertips), and will retail at 13,440 yen. Images of the garage kit version can be found below:

Sugar Mint Complex Kanu castoffable?

We’ve been tracking the release of Happinet’s Sugar Mint Complex Kanu Unchou (armored version) figure since her initial announcement back at Wonder Festival, and further developments today heightened interest in what was already a highly anticipated kit. Moeyo! Akibajin Blog reports on a display found yesterday at Kotobukiya’s Radio Kaikan store in Akihabara, where a piece of her armor was removed from a resin cast sample of the kit. According to his report the area beneath the armor was contoured, but unpainted; Moeyo also notes that this is not the final PVC version, so her ultimate castoff status is still not certain. Definitely food for thought regardless, and another potential reason to pick up what looks from the samples to be a promising offering. (no more)

June 6th eroge download release lineup

We take a look today at the batch of eroge made newly available for purchase via download over the weekend of June 6th. The eight games present a decent range of titles, from brand new budget price releases (a great week for chikan fans, of both male and female varieties) to reissues of older classics, including Mink’s erotic mystery Tokineiro and 13cm’s sexfest Hatsujou Joshikousei (perhaps not a classic, but close enough).
