Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
＼Today marks the last blog of 2018!!!／
As with most years, I’ll be talking with Good Smile Company CEO Aki-san to close out the year!
Around the start of this year, the company GOODSMILE FILM was established!
This season, GOODSMILE FILM had a hand in the making of three shows: GOBLIN SLAYER, IRODUKU: The World in Colors and Merc StoriA: The Apathetic Boy and the Girl in the Bottle!

Then, in Spring, Good Smile Arts Shanghai was established!
Recently you may have seen the Good Smile Arts Shanghai logo on some product pages for products from Chinese contents!◎
On top of all of this, last month Good Smile Partners was also founded!
So you’re saying that rather than venturing out into a new business, the goal was to take an existing aspect of Good Smile Company and split it into an easier-to-understand, separate company?

While our 2018 has been filled with new business, it’s been filled with new products as well! ♪
Capsule Toy Series

While increasing the variety of Good Smile products, new ways to play with our products have been developed as well! Such as Nendoroid Doll, a series that had its first release this year!
Nendoroid Doll: archetype bodies are currently available for preorder, so please take a look! ♪
There’s also Nendoroid dolls of established characters and outfit sets available. (`・ω・´)
Speaking of dolls, this year marked the first release of a product of the Harmonia bloom brand!
Is there anything else you were interested in this year?
(By the way, last year’s answer was “Kizuna AI”!)

By the time this article goes up, the last episode will actually be out!
Finally, what are you hoping for in 2019?!
How was your year, everyone?
I think one of my most memorable parts of this year was being able to work with the Takarazuka Revue! ◎

I hope all of our fans had a fantastic 2018!!!
I hope to see you all on the blog again in the New Year!!!
