Condolence for Merapi and Mentawai Disaster
Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel regarding eruption at Mount Merapi and tsunami at Mentawai island, but allow us to express our sympathy for those who have lost their relatives due to the disaster:
Although it is difficult to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory help comfort you to continue your life tomorrow.

sisters granddaughters in Nendoroid form. Yep, Nendoroid Asakura Nemu is now available for pre-order in some online figurine stores with a retail price of 3500 Yen and slated for March 2011 release.
For those who doesn’t know who Nemu is … well, she is actually the

Nendoroid Saber: Super Movable Edition is Released!
The first super-movable Nendoroid ever: Nendoroid Saber: Super Movable Edition has been released in Japan as of today. So, what’s so special about her? Well, of course it’s her joints. Unlike other previous Nendoroid, this super movable Saber has joints on her elbows and ankles – reminds me of Nendoroid Petit Hachune Miku. This Saber also brings along some of her swords and the sheaths – which looks to be very well sculpted.
Aside from her usual photo session, GSC staff Mikatan also held a small photo competition to celebrate this super-movable Nendoroid’s release. Here’s the details:
How to apply:
- Create an awesome pose for Nendoroid Saber: Super Movable Edition.
- Take some photos of it – mobile phone camera shoots are also accepted.
- Send it to email@example.com with the subject/title: “セイバーで遊んでみたお” along with your name and comment in the e-mail body.
- The most important factor is the POSE. Image quality doesn’t matter.
- You are allowed to use expression from any characters.
- Feel free to use other little items, but focus on the posing.
Mikatan, along with her Takanon and Ota-P will choose several winners from the submitted photos. The photos will be displayed in the blog and the winners will receive a small gift from Mikatan.
Enjoy Mikatan’s photos and read more details about the competition in her blog post here. Ready to pose your Saber, Nendonesians? ^^
New Petits Also Displayed on The Latest Hobby Magazine (Update: They Are Not Petits)
This one should be posted on the last post … but well, anyway, here’s Ore no Imōto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai characters in Petit size. Yep,
GSC is planning to release them each as exclusives (a.k.a limited). I can’t read Japanese well, but the article mentioned G’s Magazine and G’s Festival, so they must be related somehow. Expect further info in the near future. ^^
UPDATE: As Singer_Yuna confirmed in her comment, these figurines are not Petits. They are produced by Toy’s Works and have been available at AmiAmi since a couple of weeks ago. Thanks for the tip, Singer_Yuna and I apologize for the false info, Nendonesians. ^^;
New Nendoroids Displayed on This Month’s Hobby Japan
As usual, the monthly hobby magazine always shows off new Nendoroid for us to drool. This month’s Hobby Japan has four Nendoroid from GSC and there’s also a fifth made by Phat! Company. First up is the famous tsundere-otaku-little sister, Nendoroid Kousaka Kirino from the manga/anime series Ore no Imōto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai.

Petit K-ON! TBSishop & LAWSON Exclusive Version
Have you ordered the Nendoroid Petit K-ON! Set? Well, here’s another set to be added to your order listing: Nendoroid Petit K-ON! TBSishop & LAWSON Exclusive version. No real photo yet as they only released the drawing draft of the Petit. As you can see on the drawing, only Azusa, Yui, and Mio is available inside this set … sorry, Mugi-Ritsu fans. ^^;
The official price tag for this set is around 2100 Yen, but since this one is an exclusive (a.k.a limited), you could expect a higher price tag … namely … around 5000 Yen in Play-Asia? Anyway, the scheduled release date is April 2011, so there’s plenty of time for you to save up some cash to purchase this Petit K-ON! set. ^^
