[ERO] Figure News: Orchid Seed presents Miraroma’s Seihouin Erika in PVC, set for September release

Orchid Seed began taking preorders on their official site today for an ero-ero PVC kit based on one of the heroines of Marmalade’s Miraroma eroge, Seihouin Erika. The sculpt only bears a passing resemblance to her original design, but it’s hard to mind too much given her statistics: 1/7 scale, 21 centimeters tall, fully removable apron… :3 A cursory search for information on the sculptor Ranmaru (蘭丸) came up empty-handed, but I’ll give it another shot as further details come to light.

Protoculture News: Fate / stay night [Realta Nua] on sale today

The release of a new Fate title is of such monumentally colossal importance to the otaku universe that it could not possibly be described as anything other than a Protoculture (sales) Event. That said, in this writer’s humble opinion Type Moon should move on. They’ve only produced a single game (and a fan disc) as a professional unit, and as much as we all know and love the elaborate cosmology they’ve created it seems to me that they’ve been resting on their laurels for a bit too long. I guess I could see the Fateverse becoming something like a D&D campaign setting for visual novels, which would be fine, but where would TSR be now if they had stuck with Greyhawk alone? Probably owned by Hasbro or something… Anyway, Realta Nua is now on sale and as I type Fateheads everywhere are deliriously inhaling the bajillions of lines of spoken dialogue from Ayako and Kana-chan, and I’m sitting here without a PS2. *weeps softly* (no more)

Figure News: New Line Revy cold cast from Black Lagoon up for preorder

Hobby Stock has just listed a new Revy figure as available for preorder, a cold cast produced by New Line and due out in late July. The sculptor goes by the handle “Goemon” (五右衛門), quite difficult to search for due to both its historical, restaurantial, and Lupinial associations; the best I could dig up was that he’s done other work for New Line in the past and been featured in Replicant a few times. Not the most stellar resume, but the kit looks nice enough; pity it isn’t PVC. (no more)
