Up for Preorder: Nendoroid Mirari Suenaga

Being a member of dannychoo.com and figure.fm, I love it when Danny releases Culture Japan items. Sadly, I haven’t been able to preorder any yet, but this may be the one! Introducing… Nendoroid Mirai Suenaga!

Here’s some info about Mirai and the Nendoroid version

Mirai Suenaga, the mascot character from the Culture Japan TV show and main character of the original story ‘Mirai Millennium‘ is joining the Nendoroid series! Her standard expression is based on Nao Shirahane’s illustration of Mirai, but she also comes two different smiling expressions based on illustrations from the Moekana cards illustrated by Ikkyuu.

A variety of extras are also included to display together with Mirai, including a Japanese flag, Nendoroid-sized Moekana card, Mirai-chan’s sidekick Retrokyu and even a miniature itasha featuring Tasuku Iizuki’s illustration of Mirai on the bonnet.

A miniature pack of the original 50 Moekana cards plus six brand new cards are also included, so you can continue to improve your hiragana as well!

  So let’s see what she looks like!

I really love the eyes on Nendo Mirai. This time, instead of GSC designing the eyes, Danny and his team were the ones who came up with them. They also had a Version 1, but they apparently made her look yandere. She also comes with Retrokyu and some other parts in which you’ll see in a bit.

This is what she looks like from the back. As you can see, there it a lot of detail put into her hair with the ahoge and the braid.

She also comes with a japanese flag, an eyes closed face, and arms to hold the flag. She looks very cheery!

Vroom-vroom!

  She also comes with this awesome itasha! I think this is a really cool feature, as you only see Nendoroids such as Hatsune Miku Racing Ver. get them. It’s nice to see another car that doesn’t belong to Miku!

  Even Retrokyu can fit in the car!

My favourite face from this Nendo! Notice she also comes with a Nendo-sized Moekana card. It’s the Tora Card! Not only that, but she comes with a Dolfie-sized set.

This is an example of what you’ll see. You’ll have to cut them out.

Like most of the other Nendos, you can exchange her faces with others!

  What a great Nendoroid! She can be preordered on the following sites:
AmiAmi

Want Listed: Griffon’s 1/8 Yuyuko Saigyouji -ver.2- (Man tears have been shed)

So, as many of my readers know, I have become obsessed with Touhou. Some of my favourite characters are Futatsuiwa Mamizou, Youmu Konpaku, and Yuyuko Saigyouji. The latter of the which was 0ne of the main influences on my introduction to Touhou (Yuyuko’s Nendoroid Form). Now, Griffon Enterprises, who have been making Touhou figures for a pretty long time, have just put up a new Touhou figure for preorder. And holy crap, it is amazing.

Though she’s a whomping 8100 yen, I still plan on considering buying her. As Griffon has become amazing with their figures lately, I  know I would not be disappointed.

Actually, the first time I saw this, manly tears were shed. My initial reaction:

 

Anywho, are you planning on picking her up? Leave a comment in the comment section!

Also, you can preorder her from Amiami here:
