Today I’ll be making a couple of Good Smile related announcements.
Let’s get started!

– Announcement 1 –

A Good Smile Cafe x Hibichika Radio collaboration menu has started at the Matsudo Good Smile Cafe!

Normally whenever I take a photo of the front like this, I always catch someone in front as well, but today there was nobody… ・゚・(ノД`)・゚・。

Hibiki and Chikagi look absolutely adorable!
This is the collaboration menu!!

Based on the ideas sent in by customers, this is the menu the GSC Cafe and TYPE-MOON came up with in the end!


“A Man’s Romance!”

This menu item was thought up by Tawashi! The rice is made to look like Neko Ark!
This was previously seen at the Carnival Phantasm Cafe, but this time is tofu in place of the veggies, and it’s twice as spicy!

It was a little too hot for me just by itself, but mixing in some salad or egg really made it perfect!

For those who don’t think it’s spicy enough, you also get a little bottle of spice to add however much you like! If you’re feeling courageous, try some!


“Gáe Bolg!

This one was thought up by Nekosakura, JIN and takemiho1314!
This is Lancer’s weapon made as a hot-dog covered in a salsa sauce! With pickles, lettuce and onion slices, it also makes for quite a healthy meal!


“Petite Ahnenerbe!” (Desert)

A menu thought up by Kimagure Gokku!
Syrup-covered anko with fruit that makes use of Hibiki and Chikagi’s image colors! Hibiki is orange, so there are oranges, while Chikagi is red which is anko! Plus the ice cream and blueberry on top!

You can only grab this at the Good Smile Cafe!
Don’t miss out, come along and try it! There is also a light-up Excalibur on display!

The Nendoroid Gumako Comi-Po! results are out!!


A big thank you who entered!

There were so many options to choose from – Good Smile had to pick a ‘Good Smile Prize’ and a ‘Mikatan Prize’… it was really hard to pick! (I ended up reading most of them multiple times to help decide…) It’s so nice to see how much Gumako is loved! I hope we’ll have another similar competition in the future – keep an eye open!

GSC is looking for a Graphics Designer!!


The job involves making packages, catalogs, pamphlets, adverts and various other printed goods! Here is one quick comment from the Design Team’s Boss:

The three most important things for this job are ability, passion and resolve! We want a reliable comrade to join our team!

The design team’s boss was once my boss as well! He’s a bit strict sometimes, but has a very kind heart! I really respect him and the work he has done! I was really glad when he said to me : “You did really well this year” at the end of last year. ^^

The application period is from 18th November to the 15th December 2011!
You need to have some working experience to apply, and need to speak Japanese!

That brings the announcements to an end! I hope at least some of them were interesting to you!! There were hardly any figure photos in this article, so I’ll end with this dog model on my desk! :P

It’s a cast figure, not PVC, and is actually one of threeA’s products! That confident upward look is great! And look once again at Kyubey’s front paw! I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again – that paw is incredible!! xD

Anyway, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again next week!! Enjoy the weekend! (・∀・)ノ゛
