A big thank you for all the support in 2015! Here is to making 2016 another year to be remembered!!

I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things after the end of year holidays… but this year I managed to get a nice helping of omochi, so I’m ready to face 2016 head on!! _(:3 」∠)_

Without further ado, the first blog of 2016 will be me taking a look at GSC’s New Year’s Card!! 

This time around the card was made to look like a cardboard box, with ‘Nendoroid Moving Center‘ on the left side and a rather mysterious ‘Carrying New Year’s Greeting with a Slight Fragrance‘ on the front!

On the top there is a small perforated ‘OPEN‘ section! I wonder what is inside!!

△ Opening it will tear wooser through the middle though… oh well! <○><○>
W-What is this?! 

△ Eh? New Year’s money?! No wait… this isn’t real money…

Inside is a special bank note-themed 15th anniversary card!! (●´ω`●)

△ The stamps and design really make it look like an actual bank note!

On the reverse side is wooser, the GSC mark and more all in the form of icing cookies! Plus a little message to welcome the new year!! ★

△ Based on real cookies hand-made by last year’s new graduate, Chii-chan! ♡

Plus, as you may remember the box was labelled ‘Carrying New Year’s Greeting with a Slight Fragrance’… and if you take a closer look at wooser…

“Rub for the smell of pheromones”…?

While a little unsure at first, I have wooser a rub and a sniff and received the fragrance of vanilla and caramel cookies! An incredibly sweet smell!! ♥︎

“So this is the smell of pheromones!”
Nendoroid Ayumi Otosaka‘s blissful expression captures my reaction!
Plus… on the reverse side of the box is a little bonus info!
△ This section reads ‘Moving to Akihabara’! (/ω\)

The GSC Offices will be moving!!

More details regarding this move will be officially announced on the GSC site at a later date!

While I have been really lazy staying at home for the New Year Holidays, I am now back in working mode and ready to bring everyone an entertaining blog this year!! I hope everyone enjoys it!! (`・ω・´)

△ I did an Umaru-chan during the holidays!
Snacks, games and naps!! It was wonderful! ♪
