Nendoroid Yamada Aoi from manga/anime series WORKING!! is available for pre-order as of today.

Here is her official description from her GSC page:

Yamada has arrived, and she wants someone to spoil her!
From the popular anime series, ‘WORKING!!’ comes another Nendoroid to join the Wagnaria staff, Aoi Yamada!

She comes with three expressions including an astonished face, a smiling face and a crying face. She also comes with various optional parts including a plate for her to hold and a broken plate… to show that she is the queen of breaking things! An attic door to attach to the ceiling is included along with extra hair parts to pose her hanging upside down – allowing you to recreate the scene where she pokes her head out of the attic!

Wagnaria’s troublemaker is here for everyone to bring into their own homes, where you can watch over her and spoil her however you wish!

… and this is the official photo of that hilarious pose:

Mikatan Previews Nendoroid Shinguji Sakura and Koubu set

Nendoroid Shinguji Sakura and Koubu

Nendoroid Shinguji Sakura and Koubu

After being shown in fully-colored fashion on the latest WonFes, it is only natural that Nendoroid Shinguji Sakura and Koubu set gets a preview treatment by Mikatan.

For you who are unfamiliar with this character, well, both of them came from a (classic) game series titled Sakura Taisen (a.k.a Sakura Wars), which was firstly released on 1996. Due to its success, the series spawned and branched into other platforms and media, including OVA, animated TV series, manga, as well as mobile games.

Nendoroid Shinguji Sakura will bring along two expressions, as well as her sword and some optional body parts. Perhaps, the most interesting part of the set is the inclusion of Nendoroid Koubu Sakura. Aside from having several Nendoroid joints inside its body, this unit is also mountable! You can do so by opening the Koubu’s top hatch and put Nendoroid inside – although you have to remove the lower body of the rider Nendoroid. XD

This Nendoroid set will be available for pre-order shortly, but in the meantime, you can take a peek at some nice pics over Mikatan’s blog. ^^
