Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Just as I thought it was starting to warm up, it was suddenly rather chilly last night! I guess it’ll still be awhile before I can completely change into Spring clothes…

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at two products that will be up for preorder very shortly! The next two figures in the new Nendoroid Co-de series…

Mirei Minami: Candy Alamode Cyalume Co-de & Mirei Minami: Magical Clown Co-de

Left: Magical Clown Co-de / Right: Candy Alamode Cyalume Co-de.

Joining the new ‘Nendoroid Co-de’ brand of Nendoroids is Mirei Minami from the popular anime PriPara! There are two different version just like with Laala – Mirei comes in her Candy Alamode Cyalume or Magical Clown Co-de!

Both of the outfits are from the bright and cheerful ‘Candy Alamode’ brand – one is the Cyalume co-de and the other is outfit that Mirei wore when she first met Laala in the anime series!

Be sure to display her together with the previously announced Laala Manaka and upcoming Sophie Hojo Nendoroid Co-de figures, which will allow for all sorts of different outfit combinations!

Oooooooooohhhh!! (´□`。)

The cute chairman of Paprika Private Academy’s disciplinary committee Paprika Private Academy’s who is normally very serious… but becomes a lot more playful and cheerful as her idol character! Her unique cat-ear style hairstyle has been faithfully converted into Nendoroid form! (`・ω・´)ゞ

Before we continue, let’s have a quick recap about the

Nendoroid Co-de Series!


Nendoroid Co-de is a new addition to the Nendoroid series based on the theme of dressing-up characters! The figures have fixed poses and each come with four parts – the head, upper garment, lower garment and shoes. Each of these parts can be swapped between characters allowing for all sorts of possibilities. The more you collect, the more dress-up options become available to you!

In other words…!

They are simple fixed pose Nendoroids, great for new collectors and with the ability to dress-up in various ways!

For more information, be sure to check out the…

Nendoroid Co-de Special Site!

Here you can find out more about the Nendoroid Co-de series as well as test out some of the possible outfit combinations that will come from the first three characters! 

Anyway, let’s take a look at Mirei Minami now! ♪

Nendoroid Co-de: Mirei Minami Candy Alamode Cyalume Co-de

Compared to Laala she has a much more colorful look – with very distinct and bright colors! The three-layered frilly skirt is not only cute but also has a lot of volume!

△ Personally I love the way her hair looks from the back!

Next up…!

Nendoroid Co-de: Mirei Minami Magical Clown Co-de

“Pop, step, get you!” (。ゝω・。)♡

Most fans will recognise this pose very quickly! ♫

It’s such a cute pose and outfit!!

These are the kind of outfits I look forward to giving to other characters!

You can easily swap around the head, upper garment, lower garment and shoes on any Co-de figure – the upper section is really cute, but combining the dress with other poses will also be a lot of fun! I can foresee lots of fun outfits to try! (*´∀`*)

△ The shoes have little ribbons on the back!

Anyway…. as these are Nendoroid Co-de, the review wouldn’t be complete without some part swapping!

Let’s try out some different outfits!!

Staring off with just some parts swapping between the two Mirei figures…


· Head: Mirei Minami – Candy Alamode Cyalume Co-de
· Upper: Mirei Minami – Magical Clown Co-de
· Lower: Mirei Minami – Candy Alamode Cyalume Co-de
· Shoes: Mirei Minami – Magical Clown Co-de

With a different expression, this pose definitely has rather different feel to it! (*´Д`)=з

It’s amazing how well he frilly dress and the vest and necktie match up! It’s very cute!! ♪

Next up, a combination using parts from one of Sophie’s upcoming  Co-des!


· Head: Mirei Minami – Magical Clown Co-de
· Upper: Sophie Hojo – Holic Trick Cyalume Co-de
· Lower: Laala Manaka – Twinkle Ribbon Cyalume Co-de
· Shoes: Sophie Hojo – White Swan Co-de

I didn’t even mean for the pose to work like this…

But it looks like she is blowing a kiss!! (/ω\)

Probably one of my best combinations yet!! 

While the arms and legs of Nendoroid Co-de figures are not articulated, the parts come together in specific poses to instantly create a very cute figure without too much effort! It’s a quick and easy way to change the feel of the figure with a few quick part changes!

Anyway, just like last time, I decided to ask some of the GSC staff involved with the Co-de series to create their own recommended combinations! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ

1) Manufacturing Team: Kamatani

The man in charge of the Co-de series manufacturing! 

To mention some other products he has worked on recently – all of the LoveLive! Nendoroids as well as the Satsuki Kiryuin: Kamui Senketsu Ver. scale figure were all under his watchful guidance!

He is also quite a fashionable dresser, so let’s see what sort of outfit he can coordinate for us!

· Head: Mirei Minami – Candy Alamode Cyalume Co-de
· Upper: Laala Manaka – Cutie Ribbon Co-de
· Lower: Mirei Minami – Candy Alamode Cyalume Co-de
· Shoes: Laala Manaka – Twinkle Ribbon Cyalume Co-de

I see, I see!!

The two Laala Manaka Co-des together with the Candy Alamode Cyalume Co-de allows for this cute design!! (°Д°;≡°Д°;)

As you can see, with just three of the figures you can really create all sorts of interesting combinations! ♥︎

2) Planning Team: Sugar Lily-Senpai

The second idol of GSC, after Hamako!

She also provides the voice for Hamiho-chan in wooser’s hand-to-mouth life! ♪

Sugar Lily-senpai’s coordination of choice is… 

· Head: Mirei Minami – Magical Clown Co-de
· Upper: Sophie Hojo – White Swan Co-de
· Lower: Sophie Hojo – Holic Trick Cyalume Co-de
· Shoes: Laala Manaka – Twinkle Ribbon Cyalume Co-de

A lovely use of white, black and red! It makes for a more mature looking outfit! ♥︎

Sugar Lily is very good at matching up the colors from the various co-de! This will be a fun idea to borrow in the future! φ(.. )

The future being right now! Let me try a lighter version!

· Head: Mirei Minami – Candy Alamode Cyalume Co-de
· Upper: Laala Manaka – Twinkle Ribbon Cyalume Co-de
· Lower: Sophie Hojo – White Swan Co-de
· Shoes: Mirei Minami – Candy Alamode Cyalume Co-de

A white center with colorful shoes and hair ribbons! ♥︎

It also has a more mature too to it than the standard co-de, but there are still some playful color touches! The ideas for combinations really differ between people in all sorts of ways, which makes it fun to see what people will come up with! Co-de Fashion is really fun!

Be sure to grab them to experience the fun for yourself! ☆

Mirei Minami: Candy Alamode Cyalume Co-de & Mirei Minami: Magical Clown Co-de!

She is up for preorder from today!

Each purchase of will also include a special original ‘Friend Ticket’ that can be used in the PriPara game! More details about that at a later stage! (。・ω・)ノ゙

Plus! Just like Laala, orders from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP will include decoration seals to add even more possibilities to your outfits! ε=(。・д・。)

△ Kuma is even included! Yay! 

You can place these on the hair or outfit for even cuter customizations! ★
