GSC is currently running the Cheerful JAPAN! Project!


– Cheerful JAPAN! –

Good Smile Company has formed a support group of a few companies named ‘Cheerful Japan!’ which will strive to support the relief efforts for the 2011 Touhoku earthquake and tsunami for as long as possible. For at least one year we be releasing charity products on the 11th of each month to raise donation money for the cause, in hopes that Japan can recover as soon as possible.

This month’s charity product is Nendo Ren & Len: Cheerful ver!, who are pictured above!

For each sale of this month’s figures, Good Smile Company will donate 1000JPY to the relief efforts. Orders will be taken until the 29th August until 20:00 (JST), and you can place your order at the link below.

And as another part of the Cheerful JAPAN! project…


Cheerful Japan feat. Hatsune Miku Cheerful Illustration Contest!

First Prize is a figure being made based on your illustration!

– How to Enter –

Simply draw an illustration of Hatsune Miku that has the ‘Cheerful’ theme of the Cheerful Japan project (for example, a cheerleader). The expression, hairstyle, posing and background are all entirely up to you!

The illustration will be made into figures of the following types:

(゚д゚) 1/8 Scale
→ For example, like this!

(゚д゚) Nendoroid Petite:
→ For example, like this!

The illustration should be the full sized Miku, and GSC will change that illustration into the deformed Nendoroid Petite version based on your design.

Oono, the newcomer to the Web team, drew as an example!


Miku is such an angel!!

This is of course just an example – your illustration doesn’t have to look like this at all. The design is completely up to you! If you’re interested in entering, take a look at the following page:
