I’m going to be very blunt here–I really dislike Danny Choo’s insipid mascot Mirai. I have nothing against Danny Choo himself, but Mirai… yeah, I kind of hate the entire concept. She has no substance and it’s a painfully boring design, and worst of all she’s popular for absolutely no reason. Danny Choo picked her, and that’s literally it. After her popularity started spiking he came up with a stupidly complicated backstory involving time-travel and boobs. Now, she’s got an anime, a game, apparently a card game, a figma, and…. three Nendoroids.
That’s right, Danny Choo’s entire cast is getting the Nendoroid treatment! Just what everyone wants, right? Boring mascots instead of, say, the Disgaea Nendoroids to actually go into production? Kanata, Haruka and Mirai are ALL getting Nendoroids, so you can look forward to even more boring schoolgirl Nendoroids.
So, now that my bitter rant is out of the way let’s look on the bright side. It seems like they come with some cute expressions, unless these aren’t going to be included on the final one, and we can at least hope for some spiffy accessories. And hey, it must be pretty cool to get your designs made as figures.
