Prince of Tennis Archive

  • Like every year, there are too many Nendoroids. We showed you some: Sakura, Batman & Supes, Deadpool, Meta Knight, Zelda, Hotaru, and of course my boo Kylo. But there’s more. So much more, guys, I wanna cry whenever I look at this gallery. It’s TOO MANY. But, you know, they’re all cute. We’ve got more Kantai Collection Nendos than anyone needs, lots of boys from Orange Rouge including, of course, Touken Ranbu out the butt, the adorable Ainz from Overlord, Nendoroid Co:de outfits for Miku Hatsune, Fire Emblem, Mega Man, and SO MUCH MORE. Because there are so many, we have both the full gallery after the jump AND a full list of everyone (compiled by Stephen, because you all know I am too lazy for that).

  • Wow, so tennis! Much handsome. Wowwww. I’m not really a fan of the whole guys playing sports theme (which is funny because I like sports a lot in real life as long as they involve football), but I am so, so happy that companies are finally listening to their female fans and making sport boys. Who play tennis with FLOWING CAPES and MAJESTIC STANCES with butts and such. Cause everyone can enjoy good butts and deserves them in their lives. [via IoryHamon’s Twitter: 1 | 2]

  • Ah, more teasers. Kotobukiya doesn’t show off as much as some companies, but we’re still getting a pretty generous peek! We’ll start with the boys (since there are a lot of them!). We’ve got three from Prince of Tennis: Kunimitsu Tezuka, who was announced a while back, is now sculpted and we are getting a full shot of him along with two announcements. He’ll be joined by Kuranosuke Shiraishi and Seiichi Yukimura. It also looks like we’ll be getting a double dose of Marik Ishtar: his figure is painted, but there is also an unpainted sculpt… of him totally topless! Fanservice for the ladies~ Of course there are some female figures as well! The Tomo Asama they announced ages ago seems to be sculpted, and the Kasumi Yashiro they announced a few days ago is already painted. Fast turnaround! We’ve also got two brand new girls: a second Hitagi Senjougahara and Sumika Kagami from Muv-Luv. [via es_series, tenipuri & RED☆STAR Blog]

  • Shin Tennis no Ouji-sama, better known as The Prince of Tennis here in the US, is one of those mangas/shows that I never really got. As Stephen says, “its the Dragonball Z of tennis!” Aka, it’s long and nothing happens yet tons of stuff happens and it involves… tennis. But lord knows it has lots of fangirls, and if Kotobukiya knows one thing it’s how to please the ladies! So it’s really no surprise that they’ve added some of these guys to their ArtFX J line. First up is Ryouma Echizen along with his delightfully fluffy companion Karupin. Seriously, I will buy this figure for the cat. Because I collect mini PVC cats, no joke. Plus he looks amazing! And he retails for ¥6,800–yes, you read that price right. He’s going to be released in September, and Keigo Atobe is next up in the line. [via Kotobukiya]

  • Figures shown off at a prize fair usually go up for order shortly after the event, but companies seem to really be rushing to orders this time! The 29th Prize Fair was only a few days ago, but we’re already getting tons of figures from it (and also Wonder Festival) up for order! There’s Taito’s amazing Aegis & Izanagi, the SAO gang, Tiger & Bunny, Fate/Zero, Working!!, a totally gorgeous Kuroyukihime,and of course tons more. Orders are currently up only at Big In Japan, and like usual some of the big-name characters like Soniko have already flown off the shelves [EDIT: the Soniko set is back in stock!). BIJ usually has small stock, so these are all likely to pop up elsewhere–especially Otacute and HLJ! We’ll update as soon as more orders become available.
