Figure News: official site online for Goodsmile’s Kuonji Shinra PVC from Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Ore de

Vying for the most tongue-twisting eroge title of 2007, Minato Soft’s Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Ore de officially enters the PVC realm today with the incarnation of its heroine Kuonji Shinra coming from Goodsmile. She’s scheduled for release in April of ’08 at 1/8 scale (21.5 cm tall) and 6,500 yen retail; sculpt is from the recently prolific Otsuyama Houjun with production cooperation from Alter. I can’t say I’m too excited about this one and I doubt I’m alone; despite the fact that Kimiaru is headed for TV anime land next year it’s hard to work up much enthusiasm for what looks to be a butler-themed Tsuyokiss knockoff. Probably won’t be following her too closely. Update: she’s now up for preorder at Amiami. (no more)

Figure News: January ’08 Hobby Japan preview

Hot on the heels of this morning’s Hatsune Miku Nendoroid leak comes further scoopage from the as-yet unpublished pages of the January ’08 issue of Hobby Japan magazine! On the Queen’s Blade front we get our first look at Megahouse’s Shizuka in color (scooped back at Wanfesu), along with the news that she’s due out next spring at 5,775 yen and is castoffable. We get looks beneath the clothing of both Airi and Nix as well, with Nix revealed as a lower castoff. We have word that an Izuruha figure will accompany a box set release of the four volumes of Ru Li Lu Ra manga (details in the next HJ issue). Word from Goodsmile as well that they’re producing a Kuonji Shinra figure from Kimigashu (no details yet), and a look at the MMS Yoko action figure coming from Konami in December. Last but not least we have Akashiya Moka from Rosario to Vampire coming from Shueisha on May 23rd at 5,000 yen, and what for me is the heart-stopping revelation of the issue: the Orchid Seed Ishiyama Satoshi-sculpted Witchblade Shiori kit scooped at the Miyazawa Model Exhibition is coming out in resin at Hobby Complex 02 this Sunday, November 25th. Holding my breath until the PVC announcement… visual evidence below:
