Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
Every time I see Kyubey the first thing I want to do is stroke his tail! I don’t normally get along with animals all that well, but somehow I think I could get along with Kyubey!
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at:
~The Beginning Story / The Everlasting~ ♪
|From the movies released in 2012, ‘Puella Magi Madoka Magica The Movie: The Beginning Story / The Everlasting’ comes a scale figure of Kaname Madoka in her Puella Magi outfit. The figure is a complete rendition of the key visual for the movie, originally illustrated by character designer Ume Aoki. The sculpting work is by Hiroshi (Sakurazensen), the same sculptor who brought you the 1/8th scale Ultimate Madoka. It’s a figure filled with amazing detail for fans to enjoy.
Ooooh!!! ε=(｡＞д＜｡)I’ve been waiting so long!!
We showed off the unpainted prototype at the Summer WonFes, and now finally we can take a look at the painted version!
The soft pinks and whites are so lovely and relaxing!
The colors used by Ume Aoki-sensei have been faithfully preserved! Not to mention all the minute details!
Just look at the detail of the creases on her clothes as her body twists…
Or her cute skirt with such amazing volume!
From the underside you can see all the layers of frills that make up her skirt! It was quite a nerve-wracking experience putting this prototype together… (ﾟＡﾟ;)
The rose at the tip of her bow has also been faithfully sculpted!
The dynamic pose has her hair flowing behind her in a pose that captures the split second of motion perfectly! ♪
The heart-shape area cut out from the dress on her back is also lovely, and personally I’ve fallen in love with the back of her knees! ﾍ(ﾟ∀ﾟ*)ﾉ
It’s a figure you could happily lick stare at for hours..! I think I need to show everyone a video instead of just photos so you can see every angle! ＜●＞＜●＞
(・∀・) “Then let’s show a video!”
Today We’re joined by the head planner for this product, Oda-P!
A video… but I heard she was being sent off to China as soon as I was done with my photos! Where will we get a video from?!
(・∀・) “Fear not! I have managed to borrow the figure from the factory!!”
…I should expect no more from Oda-P! He can do anything that us normal people can never achieve… although one can’t help bu-
(・∀・) “Plus I have an announcement to make!”
(He cut me off…! (・ω<)） W-What is it?!
(・∀・)”The Kaname Madoka ~The Beginning Story / The Everlasting~ advertisement is currently up on YouTube and NicoNico Douga!!”
Ooh! What lovely news! ♪♪ヾ(*´∀｀*)ﾉ
You can watch the commercial at either of the sites below:

If you borrowed the figure from the factory, can I take another look at it and take my own video? ((o(´∀｀)o))ﾜｸﾜｸ
(・∀・) “It’s not in Japan again yet…”
… Huh? (ﾟДﾟ)?
(・∀・) “She’s currently crossing the ocean!”
What!!? When will she arrive?! (ヽ´ω`)
(・∀・) “She should be here in time for the live broadcast on Friday.”
*:.｡..｡.:*・゜Yay — (*´∀｀)ﾟ・*:.｡. .｡.:*・
I knew I could rely on you Oda-P! You would never let me down!
With that said… let’s get to announcing that live broadcast!! ♪

Date: 25th October 2013 (Fri)
Channel: Good Smile Company Official ‘Gussuma’ Channel’
Kahotan Station: October ⇒ http://live.nicovideo.jp/gate/lv156389891
(You can request timeshift from here!)
We’ll be taking at a couple of figures including Kaname Madoka ~The Beginning Story / The Everlasting~, other figures announced this month and a look at some of the events that took place!!
I’m sure we:ll be sneaking in some sneak previews of new figures too, so be sure to tune-in!! ( -ﾉｪ-)
The figure above might make a little debut there too! It’s my second broadcast this time, so I should be a little less nervous than last time!
Another thing to remember is that this weekend is the start of Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie: The Rebellion Story! （*´▽｀*）
(・∀・) “The commercial you saw earlier is also scheduled to show in cinemas!”
… ( ﾟдﾟ)! (“Oda-P says such important things as if they were nothing…!”)
Apparently it will show as one of the adverts before the movie! I’m sure it’ll look amazing on the big screen! ☆
-Cinema’s Scheduled to show the Advert –
Shinjuku Wald 9, Cine Libre Ikebukuro, TOHO CINEMAS Shibuya, United Cinemas Toshimaen, Umeda Burg.
A prefect rendition of Ume Aoki-sensei’s lovely illustration:
