Last December 17, 2011, Team Onii-chan Figure Display Crew had its first ever Christmas party which was held at Yumemiya Japanese Cafe.

Seven Two is a new company known for making a big splash with their trio of Kyubey releases, but this time, they’re out to show that they’re not just in the business to make a marketing pitch for white contract-making trolls. Following the said Kyubey releases, Seven Two will be following them up with this Nendoroid Petit set for the just concluded Paris-bound anime, “Ikoku Meiro no Croisee.” Unlike the previously featured book bundle which only included the adorable Yune, this set also includes the hardheaded Claude and the hyperactive oujo-sama, Alice. All 3 will be included with accessories easily identifiable to each of them so that you can at least recreate some of the scenes in the show. The set will retail for 2000 yen and will be released next year in April. Loved the show, but I’m not a big enough fan to get this.

In fact, given the limited space, we still managed to put up a great display with a good mix of old favorites and stunnin new releases. Continue reading
Mikatan once again shows more cute things to spend our money in with this set from two singers from a certain known Imouto anime, ClariS. Clara and Alice are depicted in Nendoroid Petit wearing what seems to be the same outfit they used performing the opening song “irony” of the anime “Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai”.
Wide-eyed Japonese’, Yune, of surprise hit anime, “Ikoku Meiro no Croisee'” will also be released in a more pint-sized Nendoroid Petit form. Continue reading
