Puchi Nagato Nendoroid


This limited-edition Nendoroid Puchi (Nendoroid Mini) version of Nagato Yuki from the Haruhi-chan series is a furoku (freebie) packaged along with the new volume of the manga.

As it comes with a manga and not an expensive limited edition version of a game, this is one of the few limited edition Good Smile figures to come out that is actually accessible to international buyers.

Eroge gamer Nagato Yuki can be seen singing the catchy Ga-rei Zero OP, Paradise Lost, in the new episode 6 of Haruhi-chan.

Fans with in-depth seiyuu knowledge will immediately get the joke – 茅原実里 / Minori Chihara voiced both Nagato and Ga-rei’s main character Kagura Tsuchimiya, as well as singing the show’s OP.

The reign of quality publisher Kadokawa continues with the news that both second episodes of Haruhi-chan and Churuya-san have been released quietly without drama or boatwatching; however, fans may be dismayed to note that the main feature is barely longer than its opening, having become even shorter.

Kadokawa Grovels After Haruhi-chan PR Disaster


Kadokawa’s grotesque marketing of its Haruhi-chan anime (to say nothing of the rerun of the original) seems to have resulted in such a negative backlash that their marketing department has launched itself into urgent damage control, replacing the “it wasn’t ready” nice boat announcement with a typically grovelling Japanese apology:
