Hello and to those who don’t know me it’s nice to meet you! There might be some of you that remember me back when I took over the blog for a day quite some time ago…

My name is Chan-shuu (@gscs_hirase), a member of Good Smile Company’s planning team! You may have read the introduction blog that Kahotan wrote for me the other day! I will be writing an article for the blog on weekends around two times a month!

With that said, the first item I will be taking a look at is…

Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika: Cheerful Ver.!

We wish to express our condolences to those who have been affected by the earthquakes that struck Kumamoto prefecture in April 2016. We want to work with our fans to bring back the cheer to Japan by bringing back the ‘Cheerful JAPAN!’ charity project, to help raise funds to aid relief efforts in the Kyushu region.
This product is released as a joint charity project with Nitroplus and DMM.com.Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika: Cheerful Ver. comes with a banner and folding fan as optional parts, as well as a lovely smiling expression to spread the cheer! The Nendoroid will also include badges of Nendoroid Doudanuki Masakuni, Nendoroid Hotarumaru, Nendoroid Heshikiri Hasebe and Nendoroid Petite Kasen Kanesada.
(*Please note that only one expression is included with this product.)For each figure sold Good Smile Company, Nitroplus and DMM.com will donate ¥1000 to aid the relief efforts in Japan.

The previously released Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika is being released in a special version as a part of the Cheerful JAPAN! project!

▲ Here is what is included with the product!

The main body for Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika is kept the same, but he comes with a selection of special parts including a new smiling expression, a ‘Cheerful Japan’ banner as well as folding fan parts!

These are of course all included under the theme of ‘cheering’ to cheer on those who were affected by the recent earthquakes around Kumamoto.

Waving his folding fans with a huge smile!

That bright smile on his face and the large folding fans show he is ready to spread the cheer! Not only do I feel happy looking at him, but he also somehow makes me feel so relaxed… (*^ω^*)

▲ The Good Smile mark can be found on both folding fans!

Both fans are also printed on both sides, so no matter what angle you look from you can feel the cheer! ╭( ・ㅂ・)و ̑̑

The second ‘Cheerful’ item item is this banner with ‘CheerfulJapan!’ written in Japanese on it. The special thing about this banner is the thickness of the pole! It is made the same size as the Touken Ranbu Nendoroid’s swords, and seen all of the Nendoroids can hold their swords…

That means that they can also all hold the banner!

Here we have Nendoroid Ichigo Hitohuri holding the banner! He just shipped out to fans last week!! The smiling expression fits with the cheerful theme rather nicely! (*´∀`*)

Even Heshikiri Hasebe who is currently up for preorder…

Can confidently show his support!! 

Plus, each purchase of the  Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika: Cheerful Ver. will also come with all of these badges!

Special badges of Nendoroid Doudanuki Masakuni, Nendoroid Hotarumaru, Nendoroid Heshikiri Hasebe and Nendoroid Petite Kasen Kanesada!

I’m sure there are some fans that may have noticed the connection here, but all of these characters are characters that have some kind of connection with Kyushu – the area that was most badly affected by the earthquake.

Display them together with your Nendoroids or carry them around on your bag to show your support!

Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika: Cheerful Ver. is currently up for preorder!!

Last but not least, I want to expression my condolences to all those who have been affected by the Kumamoto earthquakes. We came up with the Cheerful Japan project as it was a way for us as a company to support those who need it while still doing what we love, as well as giving fans a product that they can purchase and be proud to own knowing that the money spent will be going to a good cause. I hope this Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika: Cheerful Ver. will bring some cheer to those who need it in some way or another!

Anyway, that’s all from me for now! I’m sure we will meet somewhere again sometime! (・ω・)ノ
