Learning with Manga! Fate/Grand Order Collectible Figures Episode 2

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

We’re already into October! There are lots of big products coming up this month, so I hope everyone is looking forward to them!

Today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Learning with Manga! Fate/Grand Order Collectible Figures Episode 2

The cute yet peculiar characters from the manga series on the Fate/Grand Order official site, “Learning with Manga! Fate/Grand Order” have been transformed into a second selection of collectible figures!
This time around the line-up includes an all-new set of six different characters including the Male Main Character/Gudao, Rider/Astolfo, Olgamally Animusphere, Saber/Attila, Berserker/Kiyohime and Avenger/Jeanne d’Arc (Alter). The figures may be small, but they have a mysterious charm to them that will spice up any display! Be sure to add them to your collection!

A second set of the bizarre characters of Fate/Grand Order’s “Learning with Manga”!

The adorable characters illustrated by Riyo for the “Learning with Manga” Fate/Grand Order series have been transformed into adorable collectible figures once again!

▲ They are just as cute from behind!

The first set of characters has already been released!

PRODUCT DETAILS

Let’s take a look through the line-up this time around!

◆ Male Main Character/Gudao

The long arm from the manga is faithfully preserved, allowing you to easily put a different character on the other side of the hand!

◆ Rider/Astolfo 

Astolfo-chan is looking just as cute as ever!

◆ Olgamally Animusphere 


The only character in the series with an inch of common sense! Having her in the set is sure to keep things a little more sane!

◆ Saber/Attila 

Random items in games is a terrible culture! Destroy it!!

◆ Berserker/Kiyohime 

The servant whose love was so heavy she became a serpent is also slithering into the collection! 

 Avenger/Jeanne d’Arc (Alter) 

Last but not least we have Alter Jeanne d’Arc together with all of her bad luck!

Each of the characters stand just 35mm in height! The easiest way to collect them all is to buy a complete boxset! 

One boxset contains all six characters! (∩・∀・)∩

You can of course also instead choose to buy singles in store, but in that case each box is sealed as a random character until you open it!

The set is also of course great fun to display with the previously released Learning with Manga! Fate/Grand Order Collectible Figures!

▲ Recreating frames from the comic!

Be sure to add the bizarre characters to your collection!!

GOOD SMILE CHANNEL feat. Tori Bird!

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

September has come! The weather is finally starting to cool down a little bit, and yet I still don’t think I’ve had the time to enjoy the Summer!!

Anyway, today I’m going to be sneaking around the offices a little…

▲Good Smile Company’s Live Broadcast Room.
(Marked by a Popuko Mask)

While walking past I noticed voices inside and was pretty sure there was no broadcast scheduled, and when I looked inside…

It’s Tori Bird-Senpai!

It seems he was opening up the figures from the Learning with Manga! Fate/Grand Order Collectible Figures set which is scheduled to ship out next week…

▲ What a lovely smile! (・∀・)

Tori Bird was in the middle of making a new promotional video!

First of all, I hope everyone knows about the GSC YouTube Channel: Good Smile Channel!

Here you can find various TV commercials, reviews and more in video format!

⇒ GOOD SMILE CHANNEL (YouTube)

The channel also of course takes a look at Max Factory’s latest items!

Archer/Altria Pendragon

 

There are some videos like the above that simply take a close look at the figure from various different angles, but then we also have my personal favorite type of videos…

Videos Presented by Tori Bird!

Nendoroid Holo Now Available in Stores!

These videos either take a look at items that are currently up for preorder or instead items that are just about to release in stores!! Here is the video that he was taking above, freshly uploaded to the YouTube channel!

But… who is Tori Bird?!

▼ Team
Good Smile Company Planning Team

▼First Project
Nendoroid Plus: Cardfight!! Vanguard – Grade 01

▼Current Projects
Good Smile Arms: Kirby & Robobo Armor… and  more!

Tori Bird is a member of out planning team! His first project was in fact not a Nendoroid but a Nendoroid Plus!! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ

Tori Bird: Yep! Back then I didn’t understand anything about the process of making figures, it was a lot to learn and I still thank everyone for bearing with me while I learnt all the finer details!

Coming into the industry without really knowing the ropes makes things rather difficult!

Tori Bird: There are a lot of things that need to be considered when planning a figure – things like trying to keep costs down based on the way of sculpting and methods of painting! After that project I started working on a Nendoroid and remember trying my best to keep the manufacturing process in mind. For the past few years I in fact moved to the Lucky Factory in Tottori as a member of the manufacturing team, and have since become much more informed!

And now you’ve come back and rejoined the planning team! One item you are working on is the Robobo Armor mentioned above… is there anything else you want to talk about?

Tori Bird: I’m in fact working on an all new challenge!! But we’re still in the rather early stages, so I can’t say much else right now! Stay tuned!

A new challenge? That sounds rather interesting! I look forward to hearing more!

Is there anything specific you do when recording the videos?

Tori Bird: I always try to keep my reactions to the projects as genuine as possible! I want those watching the video to feel the emotions I am feeling when they watch!

When I came to take photos I noticed you didn’t have any script or anything! (;・`ω・´)

Tori Bird: That’s right! While I do confirm any important parts about the figures with the planners beforehand, we don’t have any specific script or preparation. We simply look at the figures while taking an honest look at the important details!

How about when editing?

Tori Bird: I try to edit them to be as short as possible but still packed with info! I try to keep up a quick and fun tempo!

Tori Bird edits his own videos! Both the main actor and the main editor!

Tori Bird: I do have help from the WEB team’s yα-tomo when recording the video in terms of camera work, but I do all the editing myself!

▲ Tori Bird troubled over his edits…

Tori Bird: We have a lot of tools to send new info out on the web – Facebook, Twitter, even this blog. But we wanted to try and add another layer to the promotion with videos, which is why we started this YouTube project.

There are around 3-4 videos each month, but do you have a favorite?

Tori Bird: My personal best so far was the review we did of the Nendoroid Face Maker website! 

▲ Nendoroid Face Maker ☆

Is there any other project you want to make a video of?

Tori Bird: I would love to do a video that takes a look around Lucky Factory! I was there for awhile and did have the chance to take a look around during a live broadcast, but I would love to show everyone how exactly the figures are made in the factory! I’m not sure if there is demand for that though!

I think that’s a great idea! Tori Bird’s guided tour of the factory!! I look forward to it and many more videos in the future!

Tori Bird: Be sure to subscribe to the Good Smile YouTube Channel for more!

The Eccentric Family 2 Capsule Toys

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I used to work part-time at the hotel used in fhána’s “Moon River” music video. It was my very first part-time job as a student so it really brings back memories!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

The Eccentric Family 2 Capsule Toys!★

From the anime series The Eccentric Family 2 comes a set of the mascots of the Shimogamo brothers that will also help out around your desk!! The set includes 5 different items including a Yaichiro paperclip holder, a Yajiro item tray, a Yasaburo pen stand, a Yasaburo hanging mascot as well as a Yashiro smartphone stand. Collect them all and show off the eccentric family on your desk!

* This product is sold as a capsule toy only.
* This product will be available prior to release at the Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair 2017 taking place from the 16th to the 17th September.

“An interesting thing is a good thing!”

The cute animal brothers have been converted into cute miniature figures that can also help out around your desk! Other than the previously revealed Yasaburo pen stand, today’s blog will be the first look at their final prototypes!

Let’s first see how they look from the back!

Their fluffy, round forms have been captured perfectly!

They are all around palm-size but even so are quite large for miniature figures!

▲ Approximately 5cm in height! (`・ω・´)ゞ

▲ They are more than cute enough to just display as figures!

The size does differ between characters slightly, but they are definitely on the larger size for capsule toys!

▲ Yajiro is in some water surrounded by coins! ♪

Let’s take a closer look at each of them!

Yaichiro –

▲A serious yet still adorable expression!

● Usage: Paperclip Holder 

* All figures come with the round base you can see Yaichiro standing on.

Yajiro –

▲ I love the puffy look of his froggy hands! ☆

● Usage: Item Tray

Yasaburo –

▲ This tail reminds me of these tail-shaped treats! *nom* (๑´ㅂ`๑) *nom*

● Usage: Pen Stand 

Yasaburo –

▲ You can also enjoy him prancing forward! ♡

● Usage: Hanging Mascot

Yashiro –

▲ The upward glance is so adorable!

● Usage: Smartphone Stand

As you can see, the figures are not only cute to have on display but also serve various different purposes! ヽ(*´∀`)ノ

Be sure to add the cute little balls of fur to your collection!

Palm-sized figures of the Shimogamo brothers!

The Eccentric Family 2 Capsule Toys!

They will first be available at the Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair 2017 in September 2017!

The product page will be opened on the 25th May with more information, so keep your eyes on the Good Smile Company website! ♪
