Shiki Ichinose Archive

  • I am absolutely helpless against the onslaught of IDOLM@STER figures, especially if it’s one from Alter or Phat! Company’s lines. I just… I love their designs so very much. The pink, the frills, the over-the-top aesthetic. I eat it up with a spoon (as long as the price is reasonable, which is my main concern with this cutie). This time around it’s my most anticipated IM@S girl from Alter: Shiki Ichinose! I love how unique her pose is, very creative… though you know she’s going to be a shelf hog because of it. And the level of detail is amazing! I mean, just admire the book. And her little cat-mouth, aww! Orders open tonight, and I can already feel myself hitting that pre-order button. [via Alter’s Blog]

  • Once again, Alter’s event booth is totally dominated by idol girls (and some idol boys!). Oddly enough, I kind of hate watching all those shows but I passionately love the figures. Who knows with these things. And oh boy is this a good year for idol-loving peeps. Their stunning Ranko is painted, along with Sachiko. We’ve got the world’s freaking cutest Anzu Futaba and a sassy as hell Shiki Ichinose. As for Love Live!, there are new figures of Rin Hoshizora and Hanayo Koizumi. For the boys, we have Ai Mikaze and Ranmaru Kurosaki from Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ painted and Camus is sculpted. The much-anticipated Okoi from Oboro Muramasa is here, and we have an announcement for Torahime! There was a surprise sculpt for SAO‘s Sinon, the casual Lancer sculpt, Ikumi Mito it painted, and we’ve got a very suggestive maid Lala. Oh, and Santa Alter Saber is on display too! It’s so weird and over the top but I love Christmas figures. [via AmiAmi’s Twitter]

  • Most shows do not get mini-events where the figures on display are 99% from it. But somehow, IDOLM@STER consistently does! Probably because every company under the sun has made at least one of the girls, so there is always a lot of news. And this event is no exception. There was so much on display! Alpha x Omega’s Nao Kamiya, Rin Shibuya, and Karen Houjou trio is painted, as is Alter’s Love Laika set of Minami Nitta, Ranko Kanzaki, and Anastasia. Alter also had two new announcements: Uzuki Shimamura and Shiki Ichinose. Oh, and the sculpt for Sachiko Koshimizu on display. Alter, calm down! Wave, a company that’s very much fallen out of popularity, was on hand with a few girls. Mika Jougasaki is painted, and they had a sculpt for swimsuit Ranko along with the announcement for a Beach Queen Nitta. Last but not least, Kotobukiya brought a few girls! They had a surprise sculpt for Yuki Himekawa along with an announcement for Cu-Poche Kaede Takagaki. [UPDATE] Added two of Phat’s figures! [via whitenoize & figsoku]

  • As far as figure lines go, IDOLM@STER is probably my current favorite. I love all of the Good Smile Company, Max Factory, and Phat! Company girls so much. I just can’t resist their designs! And of course they had quite a few at Wonder Festival. They’ll be doing a new Nendoroid Co-De line with Miki Hoshii, Yayoi Takatsuki, Takane Shijou, and Haruka Amami. Good Smile will be doing a scale of Shiki Ichinose & Koume Shirasaka and Max Factory is taking on Minami Nitta. Then we have Phat! Company. They showed off an amazing sculpt of Rika Jougasaki and also Fumika Sagisawa. [UPDATE] Added more of Phat’s girls! [via Kahotan]
