Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I check my fortune online each and every day… although I often jump between sites until I find one which gives me a good fortune – so I may be missing the point a little bit. ^^;

But anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Akari Taiyo! ♪

From the anime series ‘Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou’ comes a Nendoroid of the character who holds the power of The Sun’s elemental tarot, Akari Taiyo!

She comes with an alternate expression as well as exchangeable hair parts allowing you to pose her in either her standard or transformed forms. Optional parts include her tarot card as well as her weapon, the rapier, allowing you to recreate combat scenes from the series too!

Akari-chan! Isn’t she adorable?! ♡♥(*´▽`*)

That smile is enough to make anyone crack a smile!
This is how she looks from the back!

Akari-chan’s cute casual clothes! The chibi body suits her design very nicely!
I love sailor uniform-type outfits like this one! (ΦωΦ)

There are many parts of her outfit that are quite amazingly detailed…
take a look at the skirt, frills, ribbon on her back, the neck collar or even her wristwatch!

The series takes place in Nagasaki… a city filled with hills! Which must mean Akari is fit and filled with energy – just like in this pose! (・∀・)

The badge of the sun on her necktie is also very intricate, and of course her ‘Elemental Tarot Card’ is also included to display with her! ε=(。・д・。)

If we move around to the have a look from Akari-chan’s view…!

The front of the card even has the ‘Sun’ pattern on it!

Let’s compare it to the Elemental Tarot Card that was included with the limited first edition of the Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou Blu-ray I!

*The large card is NOT included with Nendoroid Akari Taiyo!

It might be a little hard to tell from this photo, but Akari has a hip joint allowing for bent body poses like this one! ♪

But that’s not all!! <●><●>
She can also be displayed in Tenebrae form!

Waaa!!!!! (*´Д`)=з

This other side of Akari-chan is also viewable in Nendoroid form! She looks so confident and ready for battle! The flame-like hair ends with clear parts to complete the fiery effect!!

Her rapier is also included, which adds even more to combat scenes, and alternate hand parts are included to have her wearing the white gloves! ★

I really do love the relaxing, happy feeling I get from her normal version… but the Tenebrae form looks so brave and confident. They’re so different that it’s really tough to pick which I’d display! If you look close you’ll also notice the Sun badge has also changed modes!

You can pick between the modes, or even combine them as something like this – the long Tenebrae back hair mixed with the short standard form hair parts!

I was the head planner for this product and my main aim was to allow both sides of Akari to be displayed… which is exactly why these alternate hair parts are all included!

I still don’t know how I’m going to display her myself though… (´;ω;`)

Easily switch between the standard and transformed forms:
Nendoroid Akari Taiyo!

She will be up for preorder from the 3rd December! ♪

For those who are interested, the Tenebrae form of Akari is currently on display at the GSC-Tetsujin Cafe! She’ll only be there this weekend, on display at the register, so be sure to take a peek if you’re in Akihabara this weekend!

Nendoroid Seira Hoshikawa is currently in development! ♥

I’m hoping that by next month we’ll have something to show you, but no promises! I’ll let you know as soon as I have more news on her!

Yesterday on the 28th November, the new Hatsune Miku: Project mirai 2 was released!

The photo above is of the Pukupuku Pack, a special limited edition version which included a little goods set! One of the items included was Nendoroid Petite: Hatsune Miku Project mirai2 Ver.!

Decorative stickers featuring many different outfits were also included! ♪

There are so many different choices, but they’re all so cute! They’re almost too cute to use anywhere! (*´▽`*)

Hamako, GSC’s resident Miku fan, has been hooked on the game since release!

*Hitting the buttons at the speed of light as Yassan looks on from behind!*

There is even a special ‘touch’ mode, which makes the game quite easy even for people like me who aren’t great at games… ^^;

The 3DS Game: Hatsune Miku Project mirai 2

If you enjoy rhythm games or simply want to see a fully moving Nendoroid Miku… I highly recommend picking it up! It’s a lot of fun! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
