Nitroplus has released a teaser video featuring Super Sonico in the mysterious wedding dress revealed last October in commemoration of the game company mascot’s 10th Anniversary. Sonico is credited as writing “Kamu Kamu Wedding” which is described as the musician imagining married life as she takes her first steps toward adulthood. Get a look after the jump.
2016 was Super Sonico's 10th anniversary, and the year brought such embarrassments as her summer Comiket 91 urinal promotion. Well, it's Christmas, and the bashful idol has been put in some rather lewd attire for the occasion. For a limited time, fans can download the pic in smartphone and PC dimensions from Nitro+'s character page. Get a look after the jump.
First, there was Nitro+ music mascot Super Sonico, who is celebrating her 10th anniversary in 2016. Then character designer Tsuji Santa introduced her zaftig buddy Super Pochaco. Last fall, they were joined by Super Taruko, who is described as a bit more dour and delusional. Now, Taruko has joined Sonico and Pochaco in merch.
Nitro+'s Super Sonico (specifically tied to the SoniAni anime) is ready to hold your drinking draw, though she looks a bit embarrassed to be doing it. Genco's Super Sonico Holstein Bikini de Straw Figure is now on sale at 12,960yen for the 1/7 scale figure that measures 25cm with included parasol. Release is scheduled for March 2017.

What is sometimes called "chibi" character designs can be referred to as "super deformed" or "SD" for short, or, alternatively, "nitoushin" (Japanese for "2-head size"). Well, character goods maker Di molto bene has introduced "Nipaishin," a new design style, where the character is deformed to just be a head and chest. And, after releases of keychains, they are now ready to apply this to a palm-sized Super Sonico figure.
The big day is here. It's the 10th anniversary of the creation of Nitro+'s music mascot turned multimedia phenomenon, Super Sonico. Fans had a chance to select what sort of art should be created to commemorate this, and what they picked was a look at the music child at age 31. Check out the results after the jump.
While Super Sonico is officially (and perpetually) 18 years old, she takes her birthday from her October 14, 2006 date of creation. Meaning, she sort of has a 10th coming up this weekend, and she's so excited that her heart can hardly stay in her chest. So far, the birth-week celebrations have introduced a special greet on the anniversary site, her tour at the Machi Asobi event, and a whole bunch of release announcements.
The 17th iteration of anime/manga/another Cool Japan media event Machi Asobi, has a long lead-in starting September 24th to its main "Climax Run" October 8-10. It takes place in anime studio's Ufotable home town, Tokushima, and their Fate/Zero bus wraps are back, but the Fate/ that has the biggest presence in the lead-in is smartphone RPG Grand Order. More after the jump.
While Super Sonico is officially (and perpetually) 18 years old (her taste in music is also set in stone: Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Sonic Youth, Iggy & The Stooges, The Clash, Patti Smith, Avril Lavigne), she takes her birthday from her October 14, 2006 date of creation. Meaning, she sort of has a 10th birthday/anniversary coming up this fall. Of course, her employers at Nitro+ had to talk this up Comiket. And, what better place to do this than the WC.
From the anime series SoniAni comes a figure of Super Sonico as the Nitro+ music mascot appeared in episode 10 of the series, dressed in the 2013 Racing Miku Supporters' outfit! The figure is based on an illustration by character designer Santa Tsuji, and faithfully keeps all of the impressive volume. The 1/7th scale figure is on sale now ahead of an early 2017 release.
Looking ahead to the idol raising game, JAST USA has posted a new gameplay preview of Sonicomi: Communication With Sonico. (Not to be be confused with "SoniCommie." There's no connection here to Karl Marx's May 5th birthday.) Get a look after the jump.
