So you haven’t got your chance to purchase Nendoroid Kuroneko (a.k.a Gokou Ruri) when she was released a couple of months ago? Well, here is another chance to get the adorable gothic lolita friend of Kousaka Kirino in the OreImo series. Yep, she is getting a re-sale scheduled for next month (October 2011) release.
If you still haven’t made up your mind whether to grab her or not … well, why don’t you take a look at the review first? XD
When I watched Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai (a.k.a Oreimo), I find that Kuroneko left me a strong impression of her personality and habits, compared to the main heroine, Kousaka Kirino, although they are both tsundere. In fact, Kuroneko is my favorite character from Oreimo, despite her role as merely a supporting character in the series. ^^
Now that GSC has made Nendoroid Kuroneko, let’s find out how they present her look and feel in the Nendoroid rendetion. ^^
Nendoroid Kuroneko (a.k.a Gokou Ruri)
Yes, Nendoroid Kuroneko will be released according to her schedule – this month. GSC has just posted an update regarding their products’ release dates, and Kuroneko is one of those which received an exact date: April 27, 2011. Yes, you will be able to create an argument-duel scene between her and Kirino soon, Nendonesian. ^^
Anyway, if you are looking for GSC’s release schedule for April, here is the article. ^^
Box of Nendoroid Kuroneko
OK, we might have seen Nendoroid Kuroneko‘s box design previously, but it was empty back then, wasn’t it? Well, now we get another view of Gokou Ruri’s box with the Nendoroid herself packed inside. Nothing is surprising here, though it proves that Nendoroid Kuroneko is still on-track for her release schedule which should be due in this month. ^^
Anyway, we also had a pic of the box of upcoming re-issue Nendoroid Kirisame Marisa, compared to the first release one.
Original, first release box (left) and re-issue version (right)
So far I could only see a few differences between those two:
- The font size used by the number box and name are smaller
- The number box is using pink color instead of black
- A slightly brighter color on the stars pattern in the background
- The frame shape is slightly altered
Well, what do you think, Nendonesian? ^^
See the uncolored Nendoroid beside Kousaka Kirino?
Well, I apologize for failing to get a decent photo of Nendoroid Gokou Ruri (a.k.a Kuroneko), but it is pretty obvious that the one beside Kirino is the gothic lolita otaku, right? Mikatan has also taken a photo of this scene from another view, which you can see after the break.
