Wooaahh what happened??!?! Where did December go? It was here for a moment and the next thing I know it’s the start of the new year… Been super busy with work and life in general.
Firstly, a fashionably late Merry Christmass and a Happy New Year to everyone. And to help celebrate the festive time, a timed Christmas 2014 wallpaper was hosted up on the Super Sonico official website download page. But if you’re like me and missed the timed window to grab a copy, you can grab a copy of the 1080×1200 wallpaper from here.
Wow what a massive year for Sonico and her adoring fans. So many new figures and countless merchandise and paraphernalia, a 15 episode anime series, a re-lease game Sonikomi on the PS3 and Motto Sonikomi on the Nintendo 3DS and it seems that Super Sonico’s popularity is by no means slowing down. But according to All That’s Cosplay. Super Sonico was the Most Popularly Cosplayed Characters of 2014.
Nitro+ had a whole bunch of Nico merch for sale at the Nitroplus / Nitro + CHiRAL COMIC MARKET 87′, And 1UP also has a featurette showcasing all the awesome new stuff for the 2015 Ichiban Kuji prize lottery.
