We have already seen an info card of Nendoroid Suenaga Mirai last month on AFA Malaysia, but there was no prototype back then. Fortunately, it looks like we won’t have to wait for long, as she is supposed to make her debut in the upcoming WonFes. How so?

Well, Danny Choo of Culture Japan has posted a few teaser pics of a mini Mirai Itasha that is supposed to accompany the Nendoroid. XD

Along with the pic, Danny left us the following note:

Danny Choo:
This Itasha will be displayed with a certain figure of Mirai Suenaga at this months Wonder Festival. Can you guess what figure series it will be?

Obviously, the majority of the commenters on the pic have “Nendoroid” as their answers for Danny’s question. XD

Culture Japan‘s mascot, Suenaga Mirai is (finally) going to be available in Nendoroid form soon. Yep, Danny Choo has setup a Culture Japan booth in Anime Festival Asia Malaysia 2012, featuring merchandises and goodies related to the brand.

As you can guess, Nendoroid Suenaga Mirai‘s display card are being showcased there, along with a large “2012 Winter on sale” writing, which leads to the fact that the Nendoroid will be released between December 2012 until February 2013. XD

Another version of the display card shows us the potential expressions to be included with this lovely Nendoroid:

That said, we are still waiting for further announcement regarding the exact venue, ticketing details, and programs rundown.

Meanwhile, the popular blogger and Culture Japan owner Danny Choo mentioned that he will also come to the event. I do also hope that GSC open a booth there. XD

Well, what do you think, Nendonesian – especially those who live in Indonesia? Are you excited? ^^

Whoa … what do we have here? An illustration of Nendoroid Suenaga Mirai, along with her comrades Haruka and Kanata, as well as Nendoroid Gumako: Cheerful version as a cameo. Reading people’s reactions on the Facebook page, it looks like folks are giving positive response to the realization Nendoroid Mirai – and perhaps her buddies as well. In any case, I guess that Danny and GSC are currently working closely together to bring the Nendoroid rendetion of Mirai-chan into production as soon as possible. ^^

We have discussed about a possible Nendoroid rendetion of Suenaga Mirai previously, and now it has just gotten more official. Danny Choo has announced about the future availability of Nendoroid Suenaga Mirai on his blog post about Mirai’s figma sample review. Danny got a green light for the production of Nendoroid Mirai after the pre-orders were sold much higher than expected. ^^

Well then, now it is just a matter of time before we would see the actual Nendoroid rendetion out of Danny Choo/Culture Japan‘s mascot character. Are you up for Nendoroid Mirai, Nendonesian? ^^
