Awesome news to all who loves Nendoroid or Mirai Suenaga. Apparently Mirai Suenaga, the mascot of Culture Japan TV Show will be joining Nendoroid series and it's nao available for pre-order!
As someone who loves almost all things that comes in small package and a nendoroid lover...this is definitely a good news! I mean just look at the pictures below...
Mirai holding "Moekana" card
In "Aho-Mirai" mode
(something like silly yet cute kind of face)
Isn't she adorkable? I personally love this expression on her face the most. It makes me feels like pinching her chubby cheek *coughs*. But afraid not...for those who prefers normal mode, they have Mirai in her bijin (beautiful) mode too!
How she looks like standing on the "itasha"
What you'll get from this package
From purchasing Mirai Nendoroid, you'll get Mirai, a Japanese flag, Nendoroid-sized Moekana cards, Retrokyu (the robot look-a-like sidekick), and also a miniature itasha (the car) which features Tazuku Iizuki's illustration on the bonnet as well as Ikkyuu-sensei illustrations on the left and right side!
One thing that excites me would be the fact that the itasha is installed with rubber tyres. It means that the car wouldn't be static eternally but you can get them moving if you want to. Vroom...vroom~
Comparison of the original sized Moekana to Nendroid Moekana
Some of the illustrations appeared on Moekana
Basically Moekana are cards with hiragana words on them to make learning hiragana easier and of course more fun. In fact I planned to get the original size Moekana during AFA ID. However I was being careless and didn't bring enough cash with me...*sighs*
