Kotobukiya’s Haruka (damage ver.) preorder open

Kotobukiya submitted another entrant into the Choukou Sennin Haruka (Beat Blades Haruka) figure fray today, though not an unexpected one – their Sennin Haruka (damage ver.) PVC follows on the heels of both their regular version Haruka and a damage version of their Sennin Narika. This damage version Haruka differs from her regular edition counterpart with an “embarrassed” face part, as well as holes ripped in her costume; coming in August her release is a month later than the regular version, but price (6,090 yen) and size (1/8 scale, 20 cm tall) are otherwise unchanged.

Beat Blades Haruka hug pillow from Cospa

Haven’t had enough news from the franchise of Alice Soft’s latest eroge tour de force? Then you’re in luck, as character goods maker Nijigen Cospa last night announced the preorder availability of a Takamori Haruka dakimakura cover from Beat Blades Haruka / Choukou Sennin Haruka. The pillowcase is scheduled for release at the end of May at 9,450 yen retail (case only), with dimensions of 150 cm x 50 cm and double-sided illustrations. The art featured on the pillow is not original (it’s take from in-game images), though according to the Cospa listing the combat uniform side has been “revised for greater sexiness”. With her up for preorder at Cospa’s official site preorders should be open at other Cospa distributors such as CDJapan
and Hobby Search soon. Pillow images below:

Kotobukiya’s Beat Blades Haruka preorder open

Kotobukiya posted a vendor product listing today for their latest PVC figure announcement, Sennin Haruka (Takamori Haruka from the recently released Alice Soft eroge Choukou Sennin Haruka / Beat Blades Haruka). She is scheduled for release in July at 1/8 scale and 6,090 yen retail, with a sculpt from Makio Munetoshi. This release was originally scooped at Wonder Festival, and follows February’s announcement from Kotobukiya of Beat Blades co-heroine Sennin Narika [PA]. With this listing going out to retailers today we can expect preorders to appear shortly, likely as part of Amiami’s noon update. Images below:

Volks x Alice Soft figure project update

A couple of news items from the Volks x Alice Soft figure collaboration project to report today: first is word that the votes from the Rance figure selection poll have finally been tallied! And the winner is… drumrolldrumrolldrumrollMasou Shizuka, from Rance VI! Receiving 5231 of the 43,747 votes cast, she narrowly beat out Rance Nazo no Shoujo to be selected as the first PVC figure in Volks’s upcoming Rance series. We’ll keep an eye out for a prototype to appear within the next few months.

In other, considerably gloomier news, HD reader Baldulf came across this scan yesterday that provides additional information on the release of Volks’s Choukou Sennin Haruka (Beat Blades Haruka) PVCs. Both Haruka and Narika are due out at 1/7 scale and 6,500 yen retail, with sculpts from Chorosuke; Haruka is set for release in June, with Narika coming in July. The unfortunate conclusion to this is that both figures will be available exclusively through Volks’s retail stores, mail order and online shop – meaning it’s proxy time for anyone outside Japan with their eye on these figures. We can bet the same will be true for the Rance project as well… Damn it Volks, when will you wake up to the reality of the international marketplace? (no more)

Alter’s Tsukishiro Miina, Beat Blades Haruka preorders open

Alter updated their official site over the noon hour today with new product listings for two figures we initially reported on at Wonder Festival: their upcoming Tsukishiro Miina and Takamori Haruka PVCs (from Getsumen Toheiki Miina and Choukou Sennin Haruka – Beat Blades Haruka respectively). Miina is due out in August at 6,615 yen retail and 1/8 scale (22 cm tall), with a sculpt from Nishimura Naoki (Pilot). Haruka will be coming in September, at 7,140 yen retail and 1/8 scale (20 cm tall) and with a sculpt from Akitagawa Noboru. Immediately following Alter’s listing the kits went up for preorder at Happinet’s online shop (Miina, Haruka) and should be available elsewhere soon as well. Images below:
