Figure News: Max Factory’s Shiranui Mai PVC up for preorder at Hobby Stock

Just when I thought I was finished with figures for the day, up comes the biggest catch of them all: Max Factory’s Shiranui Mai PVC from King of Fighters is now available for preorder and scheduled to ship in August. After Hobby Stock the listings at other online dealers can’t be far behind… I recommend watching your merchant of choice like a hawk and pouncing as soon as she’s posted to insure your reservation gets through.

Figure News [ERO]: Fight Ippatsu! Juuden-chan!! Plug Insulator ver. PVC up for preorder from Kotobukiya

The latest creation from mangaka Bow Ditama of Mahoromatic fame, Fight Ippatsu! Juuden-chan!! (eng. fight one shot! electrification-chan!!) has been serialized in Comic Gum since January 2006. The eponymous heroine Juuden-chan is featured here in this dapper kit from Kotobukiya, the second of the day to feature removable chest parts (though anatomically the inverse of the earlier-scooped Young Hip Cover Gal). In the realm of figure announcements it doesn’t rain but it pours, apparently… (picture below)

Figure News [ERO]: Orchid Seed’s Chichinoe+ Young Hip Cover Gal comes to PVC

Orchid Seed updates its official site today with news that their Chichinoe+ Young Hip Cover Gal figure, previously only available as a garage kit, is now available for preorder in PVC form (complete with replaceable chest part!) and slated for release in July. The second in a line of Orchid Seed figures based on original designs from the venerable Inoue Takuya and sculpted by Ishiyama Satoshi, with the recent release of PVC samples of the first Chichinoe+ kit due out later this month I’ll be able to rest easy in preording this… I just wish they’d ditch the earring. -_- (pictures below)

Figure News: Amazon posts sample photos of Megahouse Queen’s Blade Tomoe and Erina

As reported earlier, the next characters cast in Megahouse’s Queen’s Blade Excellent Model PVC lineup are slated to be Tomoe and Erina. Today Amazon posted sample photos of each (Tomoe, Erina) which give a slightly better feel for the kits than the earlier scans; I’m especially amused by Erina’s sausage-wielding ways. Perhaps it’s Maritan sausage? They’re both Hobby Japan properties, after all… Both figures are currently listed as intended for ages 15 and up, though I’m guessing that may change to 18+ as further details are revealed. Edit: Hobby Stock now has them up for preorder as well (Tomoe, Erina), listed at a July street date. (no more)

Protoculture News: Suzumiya Hahiru JAV recieves a sequel

News today from Temple Knights (via Moeyo) that I.B. Works‘ TMA brand’s Suzumiya Hahiru no Yuuutsu, the adult video Haruhi parody that made such a splash last December, is to receive a sequel (scroll down at the following NWS link): Suzumiya Hahiru no Shoushitsu (eng. the disappearance of Suzumiya Hahiru), slated to street on May 25th. Looking closely, the jacket photo bears a striking resemblance to the cover of the 7th and final volume of the R2 Haruhi DVD release… (no more)
