Super Sonico Sunkissed Cheer Girl Ver figure.

Firstly, the Sonicomi Project is now Calling out beta testers for partial patch which is excellent to see. I’ll be applying shortly to try it out for the PC. Great to hear that they’re making progress :)

02LLike tradition, Orchidseed are releasing an alternate version of their latest Super Sonico figure. I’m referring to their 2014 Super Sonico Cheer Girl Ver figure. This one is called the Sunkissed Cheer Girl Ver. If you missed out on getting the original I highly recommend to jump on this one as it looks amazeballs! (Since when hasn’t an Orchidseed Sonico figure has not???)

Neko Magic has also featured it in a recent post. (18+) Nitro Super Sonic – Super Sonico Cheer Girl Ver. -Sun*kissed- 1/6 PVC figure by Orchidseed

You can pre-order the figure already from cdjapan, amiami and j-list

Miss Yaya Han. Now has signed Nurse Super Sonico prints up for sale, here and here and Mandee Sim is also selling her Super Sonico Black Bikini (Signed!) (▰˘◡˘▰) print too.

I was looking around for PS4 super sonico themes, didn’t find anything but I came across this PS4 skin decal SUPER SONICO ANIMATION playstation4 console/Controller Sticker. Most likely bootleg and I don’t like the design much so i’ll give it a miss.

Some cool new Youtube videos.

DSC_0122Over the weekend I attended a local mini-con on the weekend and a few of the traders had Sonico loot. Picked up these two lovelies and I’m super impressed by the quality of the Space Police figure for their price. And double surprised that it’s actually a dark navy blue rather than black. Highly recommended.

Huge news has just been annouced. SGCafe report that Cosplayer Jessica Nigri to voice Super Sonico in the English Dub. Which is expected to be released in the USA on DVD and BD on the 26th May 2015 by Sentai Filmworks

Totally surpised by this news. I was under the impression that SoniAni didn’t do too well in the Japan DVD / BD sales but obviously the western cultures crave more Super Sonico goodness and rightfully so. Anime News Network also has coverage of this story.

Keeping with the Nigiri-news. Here is a nice interview with her dressed up as Sonico in the tiger hoodie outfit. Very nice.

And in figure release news. I received my Nico-chan version a few days ago, but notification from retailers state that the Daichi Uchu Sokudo – Fuuri Watanuki and the Suzu Fujimi Yukata Ver figures have been shortly delayed along with the Super Sonico After The Party figure. has been delayed once more. But the Super Pocacho: Bunny Ver by FREEing is being shipped on the 26th January 2015 so it’s not all sad panda news. See the full details of this months releases and delays here.

Where Did December Go? (Merry X-Mass & Happy New Year 2014)

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.

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.

NEW MERCH

Miscelanious News: 2nd Week November 2014

Sorry for the lapse in updates people, I’ve been distracted with many other hobbies of mine and there has not been all too much Sonico releated news or things to make mention, or so I had thought so..

The Sony PlayStation 4 has now received the v2.0 firmware update that brings customisable theme support to the console, with the PS Vita getting the same treatment. However make sure you have now updated to v2.01 as this has a fix for the “rest mode” bug where if have the option to allow your PS4 to go into sleep mode after a certain ammount of inactivity you could not wake it up. I was affected by this bug and it was very annoying but everything is good now. :)

But anyway hopefully we’ll see some Super Sonico themes emerge for us to enjoy.

SGCafe reports that Griffon makes big figure announcements in Treasure Festa in Ariake 11, Basically a Super Sonico version of their Super Figure line which will be a 1/2.5 Scale. Which acording to SGCafe’s other article Griffon’s new 1/2.5 scale Kirino figure stands tall at 70cm and features a soft chest will also feature a Soft chest too. WoW!!! No prototype or development photos of the Nico-chan version yet but i’m excited to see how it turns out!

NekoMagic has coverage on a new Super Sonico – Super Sonico More More Parka Swimsuit Ver. 1/8 GK by Volks CharaGumin which was on display at the recent Hobby Round 12 fair. There appears to be three colour variants versions and will available for purchase on the 22nd November 2014 from the volks website store but I’m unsure if it these figures will be available through other retailers, time will reveal all. Volks English website.

Super Sonico Summer Santa Ver.

NekoMagic also tells us about the limited edition Megahobi Expo 2014 Super Sonico – Super Sonico Summer Santa Ver. 1/7 PVC figure by Alter, which is basically the Santa Swimsuit ver figure but with an alternate colors,Only availble either at the venue or from the Megahobi Expo website. Official Alter figure page found here.

 

Wieselhead has released two Super Sonico figure reviews, high praise for Alter’s Swimsuit Santa Ver figure which I wholeheartedly agree, it is an absolutely stunning figure, full of details and screams high quality. Same goes for the Super Sonico – Cheer ★ Girl by Orchid Seed figure. Older Sonico figure reviews by Wieselhead.

Also the After The Party Super Sonico figure‘s release has been delayed till December 2014

Post Birthday Celebrations, Ichiban Kuji Lottery & New Merch News

Happy Birthday Sonico 2014So as you all were well aware, it was Sonico’s Birthday on the 14th October. And it appeared that the whole internet went crazy with celebrating the special day.

Crunchyroll has a nice round up of some of the buzzing twitter activities including many gorgeous fan art and magnificent cosplay and birthday feasts and Sonico themed cakes! SGCafe also covers the grand day’s celebrations including photos of in store displays.

On the 11th of October the Super Sonico The Animation Ichiban kuji prize lottery began. with some sweet unique event only items available for the winning. If you’re lucky enough to be in Japan (normal I would be this time of year) Here is a location guide towards the bottom of the page where you can purchase the lottery tickets for your chance to win. You can purchase tickets at Tatio Station too. And hobi-repo.com also has some further details on the prizes available. If you’re not visiting japan or live there you can probably check on ebay in the next few weeks for the items up for sale. But remember to be selective and shop around as prices will vary from seller to seller.

Super Sonico Boxer Shorts Are you in need of some new underwear? Why not teat yourself to a pair of Super Sonico boxer shorts. These will be released to retailers on the 31st October 2014 and are expected to cost around 4000 yen which is fairly typical of a good quality set of boxer shorts.

And as a treat for us all to admire, Mary Elizabeth on Tumblr has posted photographs of their Super Sonico collection. A nice and healthy collection proudly on display indeed.

Happy Birthday Super Sonico!!! (News Update: October 2014)

Sonico CakeHi all, sorry for the lapse in time since the last post. There hasn’t really been all too much Sonico related news to report till recently. It’s Super Sonico’s Birthday tomorrow 14th October. So a big Happy Birthday Nico-chan!!! And to help celebrate,  you can purchase the download version of Motto Sonikomi from the Sony Entertainment Network for a discount price. Remember you need a Japan SEN account and Credit Card or Japanese registered Paypal to purchase from the Japan SEN.

ps3-motto-sonicomiHowever. I just noticed now that CDJapan has 40% off the listed price for the Special Edition of Motto Sonikomi so it’s only $49.05 USD!!! So that is a much easier and better deal!!!

Keeping with the Sonikomi theme. I’ve been keeping myself busy with playing Motto Sonikomi on the PS3 and I have begun writing a bit of a guide, this is very much a work in progress so please be patient with updates on the page.

External to this site, the sonicomiproject is an effort by others to fully create an English translational patch for the PC and PS3 version. Looks like they’re already under way with the work and I shall be volunteering to help out anyway I can with this worthy cause. Soiredi (Reddit) discussion here. I love playing Sonikomi but It sucks that I’m missing out on the story and not understanding the clients requests.
