Monomi Archive

  • 99% of the time, my decisions about a figure are based on, well, the figure itself. How is the character posed? Is the clothing realistically sculpted? Is her face well done? How are the body proportions? Are the colors cohesive? Will it fit in with the rest of my collection? But sometimes that 1% takes over and I want a figure because of things like floating televisions. YES, floating televisions. Like the ones that come with Phat! Company’s Chiaki from Super Dangan-Ronpa 2: Sayonara Zetsubou Gakuen. There’s also a floating Monomi and an amazing giant Monokuma face base. Chiaki herself is kind of meh (what even is happening with her torso/bust) but do I care? No. Floating television. Pre-orders start on the 27th and I am terrified of what her price will be, but I kind of need this in my life immediately. [via Kahotan]

    Phat! Company’s Chiaki Nanami Is Accessorized To The Max

  • Empty is a strange company. They barely make any figures–in fact their last big release was Solange (!!)–but when they do produce something, people tend to notice. Out of the blue they’ve announced a figure from Dangan Ronpa of Nanami Chiaki, a PVC version of a garage kit that won’t even see release until Winter Wonder Festival. It’s a strange situation all around, but I’m sure fans aren’t complaining! I’m a bit behind on the Dangan Ronpa hype, but it’s hard to deny Nanami’s cuteness. I mean… her hair, the outfit, that gorgeous color palette, and she even comes with Monomi! And all for the very reasonable price of ¥8,925 with a July release. [via Amazon JP]

  • Good Smile Company tends to fast-track Nendoroids they think will be particularly popular, and given how many people are totally freaking out over the (apparent) awesomeoness of Super Dangan-Ronpa it’s no surprise how quickly Monomi has flown to production. She was announced at Wonder Festival, sculpted at ACE, and painted at Miyazawa Model Exhibition. In fact, that might be the single fastest announcement-to-completion I’ve ever seen on a Nendoroid. However, the rush shows. Monomi comes with almost no accessories. She’s got a crying face and a twig. That’s it. All of the cool accessories in Mikatan’s shoot? She borrowed them from other things. The musical notes are part of the ‘Nendoroid More’ line and the rope doesn’t come with her either. Everything else comes with Monokuma. Sigh…. I’d have waited another month if it meant a more complete package. [via Mikatan]

  • Good Smile Company & Co sure do love an excuse to show off their figures. They’re at it again with a handful of Nendoroids on display: none of the sculpts are new, in fact we saw them all at Winter Wonder Festival! Well except for Monomi, who was only art at the time and got a reveal later on. We’ve got two versions of the redone version of Nozomu Itoshiki, who will be manufactured by Gift and comes not just in his regular colors but also in black and white! The ghostly vibe is quite fitting, given how his goal in life is, well, to die. They’re both priced at ¥3,800. Akane Tsunemori from the very popular Psycho Pass is also painted and looking adorable! Check them all out in the gallery. [via GSC_GUMA]

  • Dangan-Ronpa has had a sudden surge in popularity recently. We have the REFLECT-sculpted Junko, two figures announced from Phat! Company, and of course Nendoroid Monokuma! As announced at Wonder Festival Good Smile Company is doing at least one more in the line: the ladylike Monomi! While I am not really digging the whole diaper aspect, Monomi is pretty cute in a very strange sort of way. Like Monokuma I assume she’ll be quite simple in the end, but will have a price to match.

  • I have officially overdosed on Nendoroids. Do you know how many there were at Wonder Festival? 38. THIRTY FREAKING EIGHT. Over 40, counting the petits. So we’re just going to dive right in: all of the teasers are here, Chariot, Monokuma (and his pink counterpart Monomi), Hitagi, Shizue, Sheryl (and a matching Ranka), Tsukiko (petit and full sized), Rin Natsume and Darth Wooser. As far as BRS goes, we also have a full Strength and Petits of BRS herself, Strength, Black Gold Saw and Chariot. The next Touhou Nenodoroid is Aya Shameimaru, and unsurprisingly Akane Isshiki will be getting a full Nendoroid and a Petit along with Rei Kuroki. Nozomu Itoshiki is getting a second version, which seems a little weird! Then we have Inia and Cryska from Muv-Luv, a new set of Vocaloid petits, Sasami Tsukuyomi, Misaka Mikoto, Charles Yoshino, Tooka Yagotami, Cecilia Alcott, Akane Tsunemori, Maou, Tia, Amy, Ricca Morizono, Miyuki Takano, Alice Kuji, a petit of Rachel Alucard, more Nanoha and Aegis. PHEW! Check them all out in the gallery. [via GSC]
