Sweet Jiji loves his tea! I’m always happy to see more boys in my Nendoroid collection! With the new Orange Rouge line now it can be filled with only boys all the time! You never see what Jiji looks like from the back, so we had to take some [...] Read More »

Nendoroid Sakura Miku

| Good Smile Company, Nendoroid

While in Japan I was lucky enough to pick up one of these adorable Nendoroids at the Good Smile Company Office. Sakura Miku was a Good Smile Company Online exclusive, so sadly unless you ordered her online or happen to be in Japan and can stop by the Good Smile Tetsujin Cafe there aren’t any retail stores that should carry her. However please be very weary when purchasing her online from sites like eBay as this Miku has an interesting history. Sakura Miku actually started out as a small key chain design for an event in Japan. She was quite popular and fans really begged for a full Nendoroid version but it didn’t get made for many years. What then happened was [...] Read More »
