The Ciel Alencon Preorder Events (Osaka & Nagoya)!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Whenever I ride on a bullet train I always feel super sleepy throughout the entire ride… I just…. can’t… resist… ・(。-ω-)zzz. . . (。゚ω゚) Ah?!

Anyway, today I’ll be taking a look at the events I took part in over the weekend!

*Some of the photos were from my iPhone! Sorry for the quality!

7th June 2014: animate Nagoya
Over the weekend I took part in two events – one in Nagoya on Saturday and another in Osaka on Sunday! The events were a special campaign for the 1/8th scale Ciel Alencon figure!

Details here: http://event.goodsmile.info/

The previous day had been heavy rain and my train had been suspended… which meant I needed to transfer between a standard rail and the bullet train in a very stressful two minutes, but I managed to succeed and arrived safely in Nagoya for the event! (; ・`ω・´)

Just Before Opening Time at animate Nagoya

By the time I had arrived on the scene, the Nendoroids and figma were already out in the showcases!

(´-`).。oO( Eh? So you didn’t help out with the setup at all?)

It may seem that way, but I was in fact left with a very important task! I had spent the previous day with Noguchi-sensei from the production team, carefully learning how to put the Ciel Alencon figure together for the event! (`・ω・´)

Unlike Nendoroids and figmas scale figures aren’t normally separable into many parts, but the prototype is often make in various parts making it easier to work on and transport. There is a special order to putting them together, and some of the parts are really small and intricate so it was a rather delicate process.

Even though I’m well known for my clumsiness, Noguchi-sensei’s excellent lessons allowed me to successfully put her together at both of the events last weekend!

By the way, Noguchi-sensei was the painter for the figure! (o・ω・o)

At both events we also had a number of other figures on display including figma Iron Man Mark VII, figma Captain America, Nendoroid Nadeko Sengoku, Nendoroid Levi and Nendoroid Nagisa Momoe!!

It was raining at the start in Nagoya, but after a little while it cleared up for some rather nice weather! Normally the Kantou area is headed into the major rainy season around now, but we were blessed with quite nice weather on both days! ♪

We headed to Osaka on the 8th!

8th June 2014: Volks Osaka Showroom

The showcases were placed out of the sunlight by the entrance ensuring they didn’t get any sun damage! ♡

Although… the bright sunny day made the showcases rather dazzling as they reflected the light…!

Lots of people stopped by and took a look at the figures out on display – it really made me all happy inside!! (´;ω;`)

Thanks to everyone who stopped by!

This lovely smiling Nendoroid was also on display!

Another figure from GOD EATER 2 following on from Nendoroid Alisa Ilyinichna Omela and Ciel Alencon! – Nendoroid Nana Kouzuki!

If everything goes according to schedule she should be up for preorder later this month! ( -ノェ-)

We were also running another little campaign on the side at these events! Those who showed they were following me on Twitter got a free badge!!

I was happy to give out the badges to my followers! Thank you all so much! (Thanks to Murakami for handing them out while I was away for lunch!)

Handing out a Kahotan Badge @ Osaka

I must admit that I was quite worried when we started that we would end up hardly giving away any badges at all… my position in the company would be in danger…!

But both fans from Nagoya and Osaka came by and grabbed them! Thanks for the support everyone!! I saw people placing them on bags, shirts and more throughout the event!

A big thanks to everyone who came to the event, to everyone who grabbed a badge and everyone who preordered Ciel! Not to mention those who talked to me even through my awkward personalty!

Thank You!!! (。・ω・)ノ

I’ll be sure to stop by again in the future, and I hope to see you there again!

There was also another event which took place last weekend!

The Mikakunin DE Shinkoukei event, where Mashiro Mitsumine’s Nendoroid was announced!

Rattatta ♪ Rattatta ♪ FuuFuu Yeah! ♪

According to the head planner Chanshuu-senpai

(・∀・) “Her arms are fitted with a ball joint allowing them to twist and turn and move up and down however you see fit…! Just like Mashiro in the series!

I’m sure she’ll be a load of fun to pose!! (*´▽`*)
Displaying her in the pose from the ending theme would be great!

I’ll let everyone know as soon as I have new info! ♪
