Can you believe it's been almost ten years since the Oreimo light novel series first began? Celebratory preparations are already underway for 2018... but what exactly they are is still a secret. The writer encourages fans to look forward to next year. See what we know so far after the jump!

This week, the celebrations around the 10th anniversary of light novel author Fushimi Tsukasa's debut continued with a Nico webcast helping to decide on a FIGUREX life-sized Oreimo statue.

Orca Toys, whose bishoujo figures tend not to be particularly understated, have prepared their next Oreimo figure. After swimsuits the last couple of years, this time it's lingerie. A certain black cat is wearing pink to appear "-From the bedroom- cute!" in a 1/7 scale Kuroneko figure. Looking "girlie" and "slightly embarrassed," the 16.5cm statue by Yasuhiro Uchijima (essence.) is selling for 14,904yen ahead of a September release.

All this means that "There's No Way My Little Sister Can Be Campaign Girl For 18-Year-Old Voting" as Dengeki teams up with Japan's Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications to teach the public about the new changes.
