In continuing coverage of Revoltech’s Fraeulein series of bishoujo action figures, the maker’s official blog reported and online figure shop Digitamin confirms that the first item in the series lineup, Ayanami Rei of Evangelion, will be up for preorder on November 1st with release scheduled for January 1st, 2008.

Goods Review: Ikkitousen’s Kanu Unchou and Ryomou Shimei dakimakura covers from Machi Chara

Entering a bit of new territory for HD this evening we take our first plunge into the world of hug pillow reviews! Tonight we take a look at the recently released Ryomou Shimei and Kanu Unchou offerings from Machi Chara, and I must say they’re quite well done. Being new to the pillow review thing this is a rather experimental post, though hopefully it will be of some use if you’re contemplating a purchase; those turned off by the concept of a body-length pillow with scantily clad 2D girls printed on it will probably not want to read past this point.

[ERO] Gekkou no Carnivale Anna PVC gallery updated

Figure News: Alter’s Nagato Yuki (swimsuit ver.) PVC from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu up for preorder

Blink these days and another Nagato figure is announced…. Alter put a page up this morning for their Nagato Yuki (swimsuit ver.) PVC figure from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu, and Amiami responded almost immediately with a preorder page (Chara-Ani has a limited edition white version as well). She’s due out in March of next year at 5,040 yen retail and 1/8 scale (14 cm tall), with a sculpting job from Tanaka Touji (Amiami search). This may be the most tempting Nagato kit yet, for me personally… (no more)

Goods News: Uno Makoto artbook illustration compilation “UNO!” to be released on November 30th

My hands are shaking as I type this, trying to restrain the complex yet primal web of emotions surging forth at the news that anime character design god Uno Makoto has produced a compiled volume of his illustrations set for release from Shueisha on November 30th. Dubbed “UNO!” the book (ISBN 13: 978-4-08-782160-4) will retail at 2,800 yen and feature illustration work from recent anime he has designed, including Dragonaut, Witchblade, and Uchuu no Stellvia. The page count and format are still unknown, but Mangaoh has a preorder page up and Amazon should soon as well. Thanks to cortana for the orgasm-inducing promotional image below! Update: it seems Shueisha has an official page up to promote the book, according to which it will be A4 size and contain an A3-size original poster as well as a complete collection of his Newtype column art.

[ERO] Anime News: new eroanime brand Suzuki Mirano launched, flagship title dubbed “Grope”

New eroanime brand Suzuki Mirano opened its official site on October 29th, along with the news that the first title in its production pipeline will be “Grope: Yami no Naka no Kotoritachi” and is based on the 2003 May-Be Soft eroge by the same name. Looking at the character designs and the font used in the page’s promotional text I’d bet dollars to donuts that this joins Himajin and Amour in the Anik brand portfolio, but with the current lack of information on the site it’s impossible to say for sure. It seems we can expect a full site opening some time in December. (no more)

Figure News: CM’s’ near-lifesize Kokonoe Rin vinyl figure goes up for preorder

The full purchasing details of the Kojika Rin figure we’ve been tracking for the past few weeks are now online, and it’s not good news for international fans. You can put her in your shopping basket, but to check out you (or a proxy) needs to be in Japan, pay either the lump sum of 70,000 yen (shipping included) up front via bank transfer, or pay 10,000 yen via bank transfer and then the rest when the item ships. We still don’t have a precise release window, but at least there are some higher resolution pics online (albeit of the unpainted prototype). We’ll keep an eye out for a finished version of the kit, and any additional news about possible international availability. (no more)
