Sekirei Musubi, Tsukiumi hug pillow announced

A preorder listing went up at Chara-Ani yesterday for a Musubi and Tsukiumi dakimakura from the anime version of Sekirei. Images of the product weren’t initially available, but today the listing was updated and we now have a look at what’s being offered. The pillow features images of Musubi and Tsukiumi that appear here for the first time, but also on other items as well (oppai mousepads and telephone cards); pillow dimensions are unknown, but appear to be different from standard dakimakura size. Preorders are open until June 14th for the pillowcase, which retails on July 17th at 7,140 yen. Images below:

[ERO] Figure Review: Movic’s Tsukiumi PVC from Sekirei

When it comes to Sekirei I must confess my guilt: like the manga’s hapless protagonist I am unable to choose who among his harem is highest in my affections (though Musubi does have a slight edge on the others); today’s favorite is the token tsundere Tsukiumi, due in no small part to the release of this very nice figure from Movic. I’m not usually a huge fan of the tsundere character type, but I can’t think of anyone I’d rather see cross her arms below her voluminous bosom and gaze at me sternly with just a hint of petulance…

Figure News: Movic’s Sekirei Tsukiumi, Yamashita Shunya Cocona now on sale

Just a quick heads up that Movic’s [ERO] Tsukiumi PVC figure from Sekirei [Play Asia] and their original Yamashita Shunya designed Cocona figure [Play Asia] [J-List] both shipped to retailers yesterday. Mine should be coming in tonight and I’ll be reviewing them here in the next day or two (still working on Clalaclan and Fasalina), but those waffling on the purchase might want to act fast, as I’m guessing Tsukiumi especially will be gone from shelves with alarming speed. You can help HD out by ordering from the links above should you so desire~. (no more)

[ERO] Figure News: Movic’s Sekirei Tsukiumi sample up at Toranoana, castoff 99.9% confirmed; Musubi (race queen ver.) castoff scooped

Akiba Hobby posted yesterday evening with a review of a PVC sample of Movic’s Sekirei Tsukiumi figure (the same one we’ve been reporting on for a couple of months now). Whether by accident or by design, the bust part of Tora’s sample was left slightly askew in what stands as the clearest evidence yet of her castoff possibility without actually being [ERO]. Those on the preorder fence over this are advised to take action now… In other Sekirei news, Akibajin Blog recently and very definitively confirmed the castoffability of Movic’s upcoming Musubi (race queen ver.) that we scooped at Wonder Festival. Aside from her official Movic preorder page she’s not available anywhere else yet, but we’ll keep you posted. 9/14 Edit: It’s official: Akibajin presents confirmation of the Tsukiumi castoff, both above and below. Matsu is up as well, and she’s looking great! (no more)

Figure News: Alter’s Exelica, Movic’s Tsukiumi and Matsu go up for preorder

Alter posted an official page for its December-release Exelica PVC from Trigger Heart Exelica earlier this morning, and Amiami responded at their noon update with listings for both it and the earlier scooped Sekirei Tsukiumi and Matsu PVCs coming from Movic in October and November respectively. At 15,540 yen retail Exelica’s price is as astronomical as the figure is impressive, but for the Sekirei fan that I am the Matsu and Tsukiumi are looking like fine items indeed. :3 Still no word on the second version of Musubi they have in the works; hopefully she’ll be on display at Wonder Festival. Decent resolution Matsu and Tsukiumi pictures below:

Figure News: Goodsmile presents Iori Minase and Onegai Onsen, Movic lists Tsukiumi and Matsu

Goodsmile has just uploaded pages for a November release Iori Minase figure from Idol Master Xenoglossia, along with the earlier scooped Max Factory ero-ero Onegai Onsen trading figures from Onegai Teacher / Twins due out in December. Movic also updated earlier this morning with preorder pages for their Sekirei Tsukiumi (October release) and Matsu (November release) PVC figures. Time to man the preorder lookout posts… Edit: Movic’s listings mention that this second round of Sekirei figures will include a new version of Musubi as well, rounding out the trio.

Today’s Updates

See below for several other bits of news that didn’t quite make post status, including the Sekirei anime cast list, an eromanga to watch out for, and a figure that may have you washing your eyes out with soap:

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)

Figure Review: Movic’s Matsu PVC from Sekirei

As an ardent fan of the Sekirei manga and an equal opportunity devotee of the various female members of its cast, back when she was announced I found Movic’s Matsu impossible to ignore. I have a critical weakness for brainy girls with glasses, and despite her uncharacteristically racy attire in this figure Matsu fits the profile perfectly… How does she compare to Tsukiumi and Musubi? Read on for our third Sekirei figure review!

Figure Review: Movic’s Cocona PVC (Yamashita Shunya original)

We first brought news of Cocona when she appeared at Hobby Stock on August 10th, and in the remarkably short turnaround time of two and a half months from announcement to release she was here on the doorstep at the end of October. I wasn’t interested in Movic’s first Shunya-designed figure Rosanna, but Cocona’s design really appealed to me so I decided to take the plunge; despite the lack of castoff or other gimmicks she’s a decent item, though not in the top rank of stuff we’ve seen from Yamashita in the past.

[ERO] Figure News: cast-off checkup

In the prurient interests of comprehensive figure coverage, some updates on a few of the items we’ve been following here recently: Akiba Blog scoops the castoffability of Megahouse’s soon to be released Queen’s Blade Tomoe figure, albeit the limited color edition. Updated Amiami listings also bring good news, in the form of new shots of Taki Corporation’s ero-ero Kanu Unchou Ikkitousen kit and Movic’s recently announced Sekirei Tsukiumi and Matsu; relevant images reproduced below:
