After many months of waiting, the highly anticipated Ship Daughteru finally reached my harbour for maintenance!
The Nendoroid Kongou from Kantai Collection, is a regular release. However, since I got her from GSC Online Store, she comes with a couple of extras not available through normal channels.
The special sleeve cover adorn on top of the regular Nendo template package, creating a rather beautiful scene of the Nendo engaging in a raging naval battle.
You could catch a glimpse at Kongou’s sister-ship Haruna behind her, hinting of her possible Nendo release in the near future.
It’s July the 22nd, a day significant to the Love Livers as it is the birthday of Yazawa Niko, the buchou of Idol Research Club as well as a part of μ’s, a School Idol Unit.
Despite being one of the oldest of the unit, she looks the youngest amongst the 9-girl-ensemble and proud of it. XDc
To coincide and in celebration of the 25252 Day, Kahotan tweeted a fully painted prototype of Nendoroid version of her! ^~^
The popularity of Kantai Collection, or more commonly referred to its shortened term Kancolle, is going stronger and stronger.
Announcements and releases are flooding the world of figure collection as well as never-ending supplies of merchandise (Unlike the flow of Bauxite XDc)
After the overwhelming demand of Nendo/Figma Shimakaze a few months back, it’s no surprise that many more will come courtesy of GSC, including Nendo/Figma Akagi as well as this gem… :3c
Last year the world was caught in the blast of a new form of moe (Considering by many as the new Touhou Project…) that is the fleet management browser game called Kantai Collection, or Kancolle for short. =w=
Spanning across all types of mediums and forms, the various bishoujo rendition of World War era battleships charmed the likes of the otaku scene, driving its popularity to the max especially in recent Moons.
Merchandise of these lovely Kanmusu, most of them voiced by high-profile seiyuu veterans no less, are popping out like mushrooms ever since.
The recent announcements of a Kancolle anime which will be directed by the same person who did the Nanoha series, as well as a PlayStation Vita version of the game, certainly further accelerates its new-found fame, much to the delight of all Admirals (Or Teitoku aka T, affectionately referred to one another by the players of the game itself…).
It’s finally the time for what you’ve been waiting for: piccies of lovely and sexy cosplays I acquired from during my roaming hours in Comic Fiesta.
Have a relaxing Rilakkuma relaxing at the side of the hall and the lovely kitsunemimi Coffy, the mascot of Comic Fiesta, as an entrée for the post. XDc
Many comrades have referred to CF as Cosplay Fiesta nowadays due to it being more cosplayers than comics at all.
I must say I do agree with the sentiment: most doujin stuff I saw are of merchandise and artwork variety instead of manga/booklet. That and the halls are practically fully packed with cosplayers. =w=
