*ahem* Yes, I know that the last time I do the Random Gallery post was … umm … almost a year ago. Nevertheless, I do not think I will post this monthly, but I will try to post one when I come across some interesting Nendoroid photos. ^^

Anyway, this time’s gallery consists of mostly the newly released Nendoroid, such as Honma Meiko (Menma), Charlotte E.Yeager (Shirley), and Desert Army-san. Enjoy! ^^

Nendoroid Petit Sawa-chan and Menma are Delayed

Nendoroid Petit Yamanaka Sawako and Honma Meiko

Anime Style vol.5, which includes Nendoroid Petit Yamanaka Sawako from K-ON!, is supposed to be released by this month, but it has been pushed to December, while Anime Style vol.6 with Nendoroid Petit Honma Meiko (Menma) from Ano Hana is delayed from December to January next year.

I guess the delay is caused by the strong demand for both magazine issues, forcing GSC to adjust the publish schedule. Well, what do you think about the delay, Nendonesian?

As predicted, the latest GSC’s live NicoNico broadcast brings along a couple of new Nendoroid announcements. The first one is the highly anticipated Nendoroid Menma (a.k.a Honma Meiko) from Ano Hana. A couple of optional parts are spotted, such as three expressions, flowers, a pile of cakes, as well as a (music?) book Menma’s diary. Considering her production-sample-lookalike stand base, it looks like she will be ready for pre-order shortly. Anyway, did you notice the flower-pattern on her stand base? XD

Nendoroid Aragaki Ayase

Nendoroid Aragaki Ayase from OreImo made an appearance on the live broadcast as well. Three expressions (albeit missing the famous yandere expression XD) as well as a handcuff, a school bag, a cellphone, and a magazine, are all displayed there. It seems that she is still a master figure though, so her pre-order should have to wait a little further. ^^

Nendoroid Sayaka Miki

A prototype of Nendoroid Sayaka Miki from the anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica is also shown on the broadcast as well. Not much details are presented there, but further info should be available soon … I guess. ^^;

Well, what do you think, Nendonesian? ^^

The monthly magazine Anime Style vol.6 will have Nendoroid Petit Menma (Honma Meiko) included in the package as well. It seems that the popular novel/anime series Ano Hana will be getting the spotlight in this magazine. Anyway, here is the description from its official page:

Monthly Anime Style’s 6th issue features a special look at ‘Ano Hana’!
The sixth volume of Monthly Anime Style is a special issue focusing on the Noitamina series, ‘Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai’, which was one of 2011’s most appreciated anime series. As usual, Monthly Anime Style will be taking a very in-depth look at the series, from start to finish! Not to mention that the issue is also loaded with illustrations and visuals that any fan of the series will enjoy. The issue will include a Nendoroid Petite of Menma.

The second special feature in this issue is a look at Hiroyuki Imaishi’s Anime Style. Hiroyuki Imaishi is famous for his work on ‘Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagaan’, ‘Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt’ and other series – and he is here to share his creative secrets with you!

Along with both the above special features, the issue will also take a look at other series and creators – not to mention it is serializing loads of series including Masaaki Yuasa’s ‘Konnano Sekai’.

*Monthly Anime Style is a monthly publication that delves into the production side of anime while also featuring a look at some rare images of the original works. Each issue will feature a Nendoroid Petite relating to the special feature in each issue!

She will be released on December 2012 with a price tag of 1575 Yen.

Well, what do you think, Nendonesian? Are you getting this magazine bundle along with the adorable Petit of Menma? ^^
