Takamatsu from Phat! Company has an army of Sachikos!
I know I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of money on Cinderella Girls (to the point that it’s painful to think about :P), but I’m nowhere near the levels of Otanaka and Takamatsu! Those two truly adore their idols!!
As a side note, Takamatsu is a Passion-type player just like me! One of my rare comrades in the IDOLM@STER world!! His favorite idol is Sachiko Koshimizu!
It’s not hard to see why… Sachiko is so cute! I love her too!! （*´∀｀*）
Minicchu IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls 02
From the popular social game ‘IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls’ comes a second set of idols based on the adorable illustrations of Kengou Yakumo, here to join the chibi Minicchu series of figures from Phat! Company.
The second set includes Airi Totoki and Ranko Kanzaki, the two idols who were voted most popular in the first and second Cinderella Girl Elections respectively. The others in the set include Mika Jougasaki, Rika Jougasaki, Uzuki Shimamura, Sachiko Koshimizu, Koume Shirasaka and one secret character for a total of 8 different idols to collect!
The second set is just as amazing as the first!
I really think that Phat! Company’s Minicchu figures are an incredibly well-made series! Plus they only cost ¥680 each! For the amount of detail that you get on these figures, that price is incredibly cheap in my opinion!
There are another 8 idols to collect, including one secret character!
Each time you buy a single figure you won’t know who is inside until it’s been opened up! It’s so much fun to see who you’ll get! Alternatively you can order a larger box of 9 figures – I recommend this to anyone who wants to get the whole set all at once! (・ω・)ノ
This is how they look from the back!
Aaah! Just look how cute Totokin’s hair looks from the back! It’s super cute! (She is 2nd from the left on top). Ranko’s twirly twin tails also look great! The most amazing thing about the Minicchu series is the intricate sculptwork and painting, even though the figures are small!
I can’t even imagine how much work will be needed to get each of these figures mass produced!! They’re so finely detailed! Try and pay attention to all the smallest of details as I take a closer look at the idols in this set!
Passion Type: Rika Jougasaki!
A picture together with her Nendo Petite counterpart!
Comparing the heights, you can see the Minicchu is about two thirds the size of the Nendo Petite – they’re so tiny!! Nendoroid Petites certainly are adorable, but the Minicchu series has a different kind of cuteness – they give the characters even more of a childish charm! I can’t help but crack a smile when I see their cute expressions!
The Rika Jougasaki Minicchu also comes with a rhinoceros beetle to display alongside her, or with anyone else!
The other Passion types:
Airi Totoki and Mika Jougasaki!
Totokin is so adorable!! She’s too cute!! I remember that I started playing Cinderella Girls just as Totokin was voted into first place during the first Cinderella Girl elections, and the ‘Cinderella Girl’ capsules were released in the game. I couldn’t believe how cute she was when I first saw her… （´∀｀）
Of course I love Mika as well though! I have all her cards in the game!!
Next up we have the Cool types:
Ranko Kanzaki and Koume Shirasaka!
Ranko was voted as the top idol in the 2nd Cinderella Girl elections! Have a look at the detail on her outfit and expression – it’s almost unbelievable!! I’ve zoomed in almost too much so it’s quite hard to tell, but if you look close you can see the ribbons on her sleeves and the front of her outfit – and they are each individually painted! Normally when there are such tiny parts on figures they’re just simplified and made a single color… but not this time!
Plus I know that the Cool-type players have been eagerly awaiting Koume-chan! The shadow under her eye is so cute! If you remove her front hair parts you can actually see her with both eyes open!!
Finally we have the Cute types:
Sachiko Koshimizu and Uzuki Shimamura!
Sachikooooo!! Just look at that triumphant expression on her face! She only got 4th place in the 2nd elections, however within the GSC offices she is really popular even with the Passion and Cool-type players! Stop being so cute Sachiko! Takamatsu’s wallet can’t handle it anymore! :P
We also have Shimamura-chan in her fairly standard looking school uniform – but although it has a simplistic look the detail is still incredible. The school emblem and inner-side of the blazer, not to mention the chequered skirt are just as amazingly detailed as all the other idols!
