Nothing like a Pre-order to make my morning that little better! First up is Shunya Yamashita’s third art book with the working title “One Voice”. I was very impressed with “Wild Flowers” so as soon as I caught wind of this item I went ahead and ordered.
Sources indicate a late July release in Japan, with the book retailing at just under 3000yen from most online vendors. This item will go very well with the latest item to arrive on my doorstep this week ^^
The second item on my Pre-Order list is Kurumi Imari from Bible Black, police inspector version. There are two versions being release but I am sticking to the regular one as the authentic outfit colours. One thing that is immediately noticeable (other than her pantsu!) is the cool chair accessory, there are shades of Shunya’s “Mirei-san” and it seems the combination of sexy work uniforms and seductive poses around a executive chair…sells.
This figure is 1/8 scale and is being released by Miyabi-ya/Arclight and is set for a late June release, around the same time as Hyakka Ryoran’s Senhime ; so those who were not tempted by the lovely Samurai girl may be seduced by Imari this summer; Imari’s initial cost seems to be around the 8,000yen mark with discounts.
So my order list this year swelled a little but also makes up for the cancellations inflicted on me by ToysLogic.com! A silly number of boxes arrived this week from overseas, including my new Dakimakura cover and Red Stone Lancer figure (yay!). With a Bank Holiday this week, I will endeavour to get some new photos up for readers to view.
