Nendoroid Tanigawa Kanna is Available for Pre-Order

Nendoroid Tanigawa Kanna

Mikatan has previewed Nendoroid Tanigawa Kanna from Ano Natsu de Matteru, so it is time for the Nendoroid to be available for pre-order. XD

Kaito’s childhood friend, Kanna!
From the anime series ‘Waiting in the Summer’ comes a Nendoroid of Kanna Tanigawa, the girl who finds herself caught up in a complicated love triangle. She is wearing her Komoro High School uniform just like Ichika Takatsuki before her!

Kanna comes with an alternate head part that allows you to display her wearing a cat-ear Alice band, and she also comes with a crying expression which means you can recreate the cute cat pose with teary eyes. You can also pose her with Remon Yamano’s special ‘Dynamite Drink’, as well as in the crawling pose she took when she was drunk, which looks great with the included indulgent expression!

She will be available for 3500 Yen and scheduled for February 2013 release.

Along with the usual figurine retailers, she will also be available for pre-order at Goodsmile Online Shop. Orders can be placed between the 30th October 2012 (Thu) from 12:00 until the 28th November 2012 (Wed) at 21:00.

Are you going to pre-order her, Nendonesian? ^^

Nendoroid Lily from anim.o.v.e is Announced and Ready for Pre-Order

Nendoroid Lily from anim.o.v.e

The Nendoroid design for Nendoroid Lily from anim.o.v.e was initially displayed months ago. Fast-forward to today and she is finally announced and available for pre-order!

The Vocaloid who is rapidly gaining popularity – Lily!
Lily, the Vocaloid character who is becoming more and more popular by the day, is joining the Nendoroid series!

She comes with optional parts including a microphone and speaker, which allow you to recreate the pose on the ‘VOCALOID2 Lily’ packaging! She also comes with a singing expression to pose her singing out loud, as well as an expression from ‘Harii’ the fan-made bee character based off Lily!

This cute and cool-looking Nendoroid will be manufactured by Phat Company, priced at 3500 Yen and scheduled for March 2013 release – I doubt they could release it in time though, considering their track record. XD

I am glad that GSC has finally shifted to make more Vocaloid character – especially non-Crypton characters – into Nendoroid, starting with Gakupo, GUMI, and now Lily from anim.o.v.e.

Needless to say, I am putting this Nendoroid into my wishlist. What about you, Nendonesian? What do you think about this Nendoroid? ^^

(Thanks for the news tip, Allgroasai and Jarvis Delgado!)

Nendoroid Noumi Kudryavka: Summer Uniform version

GSC has just posted an updated page of Nendoroid Noumi Kudryavka: Summer Uniform version a few days ago to confirm the re-sale of this adorable Nendoroid. They announced it as a commemoration for the start of Little Busters! anime adaptation. If I remember correctly, the page was previously only available in Japanese when it went up for the first time in 2011. XD

Nendoroid Release Schedule for November 2012 (Updated)

Nendoroid Nyaruko

Going past the depressing month of October, we can see a healthy (or bloody, depending on your financial condition) list of Nendoroid releases for November. Yep, there are a total of 11 Nendoroids and a single Petite set scheduled for the coming month, which might inflict some damages to your wallet.

That said, I find it interesting that there are four fully-posable Nendoroid supposed to be released this month. Considering GSC’s recent declining release rate – possibly due to tighter quality check – I think it is safe to assume that there will be some delays among these Nendoroid, which are most likely the fully-posable one.
