Japan Expo 2013 and ANIME EXPO 2013 took place in France and America this last weekend! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ

Here is a picture from France!

It’s Monday evening here in Japan right now, but because of the time difference the events have probably only just finished over on that side of the world!! All the staff that went over for the events have probably just finished packing everything up! But I’m sure we should be seeing them all again soon!

I was hoping to review a prototype today while we wait for everyone to come home… but when I spoke to Hamayama to try and get hold of today’s prototype, I was told it was over at one of the overseas events!!

W-What am I going to do now?!

Although I’m actually quite happy to hear that! There aren’t a lot of chances for people outside of Japan to get a look at prototypes, so I hope everyone on the other side of the world got a good look this time around! ^^

That said, today’s blog is going to have to be done a little differently to normal! I’ll be using the professional product photos and commenting on them instead!

From Vivid Red Operation:
Nendoroid Akane Isshiki!

From the anime series ‘Vivid Red Operation’ comes a Nendoroid of the ever-cheerful main character, Akane Isshiki!

Her hover-bike ‘Wanko’ is also included as an optional part for her to ride on, and the otter form of Kenjirou Isshiki, ‘Uso-kun’ is included to stand by her side! Of course a bottle of Akane’s favorite mayonnaise is also included, allowing you to recreate a number of your favorite scenes from the series!

She can be posed riding her hover-bike, Wanko!

This creates the same pose as the 1/8th scale figure! The Nendoroid-sized Wanko is adorable! (*´∀`*)

Even in Nendoroid-size the amount of detail you can see on the bike is fantastic! Of course the Nendoroid can get off Wanko and take many other poses too!

The ever-optimistic Akane-chan!!

Using the bent arms and legs you can pose her energetically running about! Her twin-tails also have joints so you can create a really dynamic pose with the wind blowing through her hair too!!

Akane-chan has such an innocent, natural feeling to her which is captured in the Nendoroid perfectly! She’s come out looking great!!

Her beloved mayonnaise bottle is also included!

Akane-chan loves mayonnaise so much that she even covers her rice in it, so it simply had to be included with the Nendoroid! You can even pose her holding it with both hands just like in the series! Σ(゜∀゜ )

I wonder how she stays so thin while eating all that mayonnaise! I’m jealous!!

This is how she looks from the back!

She even comes with a school bag to pose her on the way to school! The uniforms in the series made use of hot-pants, which is quite rare in anime series and Nendoroids, but they look very nice here!!

I can think of so many fun poses to put her in!!

“Ignition! Texture on!”

The pose just before her transformation scene! The special ‘key’ she needs to transform is also amazingly detailed – it looks exactly like it did in the series!!

Her grandfather Kenjirou Isshiki is also included in the otter plushie form that he ends up in! Isn’t he adorable!! (*゜∀゜)=3

I love the shape of his mouth and cheek area! It just makes me wish he was real so I could squeeze them!! When I think about it, the simple fact that I can make out the cheeks on the tiny figure is amazing in the first place!!

From Vivid Red Operation:

I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛
