Angel Beats! – Tenshi 1/8 PVC figure by ASCII Media Works

Will be released in March 2013. Around 200mm tall (included wings), 8,400 yen (taxed in). Dengekiya exclusive.

 

What!!!??? A castoffable Kanade??? And it’s by Good Smile Company??? I’m quite surprised beacause Good Smile Company don’t usually do castoffable figure, especially those that comes with the ‘naked’ feature. Maybe it’s for fan service? Yet, I like this idea (^o^)

 

As seen from the magazine:

Yuru Yuri – Magical Girl Mirakurun 1/7 PVC figure set by Alter

Alter is going to release the Magical Girl Mirakurun ( 魔女っ娘ミラクるん ) 1/7 PVC figure set from the manga/anime “Yuru Yuri” ( ゆるゆり ). Will be released in January 2013. Around 200mm tall, 8,800 yen.

 

Yeah, which reminds me 🙂 A Japanese friend recommended me to watch this anime but haven’t got the time to do so 😦 Anyway, I kind of know that Mirakurun is just an anime character which appears in the Yuru Yuri anime. 🙂 It means that it’s not part of the Yuru Yuri official characters. Put simply, a character that appears in TV in the world of Yuru Yuri. Kind of like Meruru in Oreimo anime 🙂 Even anime characters are watching animes nowadays (^o^)
