[Cherry Girls] January guest illustration #4 – Taira Tsukune-san

The fourth (and final?) Cherry Girls guest illustration for January is here! Rio-kun just made a mess but manages to look cute while doing it ^^ (and somehow managed to shrink himself down to fit in the palm of your hand? Or that is just one big menu). Illustrated by Taira Tsukune-san (Route1).

comment from the artist:

Thank you for inviting me (to participate in this feature).
The boys from “Otosuki?!” are all cute, but out of the four, I’ve drawn the one that really grabs my heart the most. The Alice in Wonderland inspired clothing is really cute! I’m looking forward to see what will happen.

[Cherry Girls] Boys that enjoy maid clothing!? — Story 8, Chapter 1


December — At the maid cafe where the maids are all boys, 『Cherry Girls』, a special Christmas Event is taking place to thank the Masters and their patronage. A present has been prepared for them and it is…yup, Yuki-kun! Previously, Yuki-kun had pushed Tomo-kun into an incident. Now, he must obey Tomo-kun’s commands.

[Figures] Niθ x Alter x Hobby Japan collabo…!!

Ahh I love it when great people work together! Over at Hobby-Channel, they’ve got a special bit of news announcing a project that parent company Hobby Japan will be working on for their 40th anniversary celebration alongside with awesome illustrator Niθ and also excellent figure company Alter. This dream project (oh they all are, aren’t they? lol ^^) is called “Hyakka Ryoran -Samurai Girls-” (Hyakka Ryoran / 百花繚乱 meaning an abundant blooming of flowers, or a gathering of beautiful women), and the official site just opened today. This will be a somewhat full fledged project along with Hobby Japan’s Queen’s Blade series and Cherry Girls as well. It will encompass so far I think a short novel, as well as the yummy figures that we all want.

[Figures] Alter’s 1/6 swimsuit T-elos (sorta)


If you recognize her, she’s actually Alter’s 1/6 swimsuit Kos-mos, but for the upcoming Megahobby Winter Expo event taking place on Feb. 11th, Alter will be selling the same figure but in T-elos’ color scheme, which as you can see above, means dark/tanned skin, a dark bikini, sexy red string ties and beautiful blue eyes. I thought Kos-mos was kinda plain, but somehow the dark look really brings out the beauty in her for me. It’s just too bad that she’s event exclusive :\

[Figures] Queen’s Gate Iroha


Pshaaww as if there were any doubt :P. So far all of the Queen’s Gate characters have made it to figure form, both general and exclusive releases (and also including both forms of Alice), so I don’t think this should have been any surprise. It was only a matter of time! Anyway, she is of course the lovely and loyal Iroha, from the fighting game series Samurai Spirits, by SNK Playmore (Queen’s Gate game book illustrated by Iidzuki Tasuku). She is open for preorders but she is a magazine exclusive (I’m guessing through the latest issue of Hobby Japan). Whether other stores will be able to get her is up in the air :\

edit: A few more pics of her at Akibablog, along with a nice, clean image (aside from the Akibablog logo) of Queen’s Gate’s newest cast member, Dizzy from the Guilty Gear series:


[Cherry Girls] January guest illustration #3 – Tama-san

The third Cherry Girls guest illustration for the month of January. This time we have the Cherry Girls quartet chilling in uniform. Illustrated by Tama-san (Songe).

comment from the artist:

The boys from “Otosuki?!” are so cute, whenever I look at them my face just melts…
I was wondering who to draw, but in the end I couldn’t decide and drew all four of them.
I excited to see what direction the story is heading, so I’m looking forward to it!
Thank you very much for letting me participate in such a wonderful feature!

[Movies] Keanu Reeves as Spike Spiegel

Whooooa. Haven’t really been following this, but Sunrise officially announced plans to bring out a live action movie version of the anime series Cowboy Bebop, with Keanu Reeves taking the lead role of Spike Spiegel. It’ll be a collaboration project between Sunrise, 20th Century Fox, and 3 Arts Entertainment. Good news for the fans of the series I guess is that the original director and script supervisor for the series, Shinichiro Watanabe and Keiko Nobumoto respectively, as well as the president of Sunrise, Kenji Uchida, will be on hand personally as associate producers to the film. Original series’ producer Masahiko Minami will also act as production consultant.

I’ll reserve my judgments until we actually see some footage lol. After recently seeing the Dragonball and Street Fighter trailers, I hope it won’t end up grouped up with them. With a big name like Keanu attached to the film and many of the people who were responsible for the original series on the film, it may turn out better than most people currently are making it out to be. However it turns out though, I’ll probably still check it out just in support for the fact that anime series are gaining more exposure in some way or another. Another one that I am interested in checking out is Leonardo DiCaprio’s Akira. Despite what most people may be saying blindly in light of the fact that it’ll be produced by Leo’s production company and will have him star in a lead role as well, I think he might actually make a pretty good Kaneda.

Thank you for letting me participate in such a wonderful feature. The boys from “Otosuki!?” are all so cute, and when I’m reading, I fall for each of the four’s charms. I’ve really enjoyed it. I really look forward to the continued serialization of the story and comic! Good luck to this year as well!
