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. With Ayase Aragaki winning out over Kirino and Kuroneko, the next step was to pick a pose. And, presented to the fans, Ayase's provocative handling of her skirt got quite a reaction.
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.
New Hampshire and BernBros are already old news. Today, it's all about the KirinBros. Last June, Japan's Diet enacted legislation lowering the nations voting age from 20 to 18. 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.
Orca, whose bishoujo figures tend towards the risque, is back with another inspired by Oreimo. After their "Cheerful" swimsuit Kirono (which had a huge 1/2.5 version made), and swimsuit Kuroneko, it's now time for a "From the bedroom" version of the rival. Sculptor Yasuhiro Uchijima is back for this latest 1/7 scale, 16.5cm figure. She sells for 14,904yen with shipping planned for July. Get a look after the jump.
Japanese retailers including Amazon Japan today started accepting pre-orders for Orcatoys' latest 1/7th scale character figure from the popular Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai/Oreimo series, "Kirino Kousaka MIZUGI version Cheerful!." Check the details after the jump.
Bishoujo home decor maker Curtain Damashi, anime stamp maker Itaindou and the self Anishuga Anime x Sweets have joined forces to celebrate Oreimo weddings. Fans can choose from Kirino or Kuroneko curtains, stamp sets or cakes. Get a look after the jump.
Orca Toys has revealed their companion to their previously presented mizugi (swimsuit) figure of Oreimo's Kuroneko. The 1/7th scale, 15.5cm figure scheduled to be released in May for 10,000yen. While this one certainly makes an impression, she pales next to Griffon Enterprises' 1/2.5 scale 70cm catgirl swimsuit "superfigure." Scheduled for April, she's available in 38,880yen regular version and 41,904yen "soft bust" edition.
In time to order at the end of summer, but not shipping until December, Good Smile Company is now taking orders for a 1/8th scale Oreimo Kirino Kousaka yukata festival dress figure. The figure by FREEing is set to be paired with a forthcoming Kuroneko figure. Get a look after the jump.
Art book Hiro Kanzaki Artwork Collections Cute hits Japan today collecting art by the Oreimo light novel illustrator covering the first six light novels plus doujinshi and other works created up to until 2007, plus a special novella. What's really tantalizing fans about this book is that there's a follow-up planned for 2015, featuring "After Story." Get a look after the jump.
