ARCANADEA Blog: Velretta is here! And so is our out-of-the-box product review!

Originally published in Japanese on November 28, 2022   Hello everyone! It’s been a while! This is Baron of Potatoes of the Kotobukiya Plastic Model Team. At long last, the second release of the ARCANADEA series, Velretta, will go on sale tomorrow! ※For overseas users, check out this page for a list of our international distributors! In today’s out-of-the-box build, I’m going to show you: ◆ The model’s amazing features ◆ Points to watch out for during assembly Also, key points in the review will be accompanied by Yuruletta-chan (drawn by ARCANADEA’s promotion staff!) so keep on the lookout for her! Just like last year’s Lumitea assembly blog post (available in Japanese only), this entry is pretty lengthy! I hope you’ll stay with us through the end!   Content Menu ◆ Normal Mode! ◆ Customizations with Lumitea ◆ Wilize Mode! ◆ Impressions and Further Information   Normal Mode! ■ Opening the box! The box itself, featuring foil printing, is a beautiful work of art all on its own! Once again, necömi’s illustrations are almost too good to be true! I could say so much more about the box alone, but let’s move on to the contents! If you’re curious about the box, check out this tweet!   Like Lumitea, Velretta’s kit allows you to assemble her in both regular appearance “Normal Mode” and combat form “Wilize Mode.” Although Vel-sama is a bit smaller than Lumitea, she has a tail, four wings and a large skirt, making for lots of runners and plenty of volume! Amazingly, there are 10 pre-painted parts! They are just gorgeous, painted in navy blue, light purple, and gold.   ■ Head Parts The hair parts use 3mm connections for the side bangs and the chignon at the back of her head, so it would seem that there are many hair-styling options available!   The ear parts use the same system as Lumitea, so they can be interchanged! And the side bang hair parts are moveable thanks to the ball joints, giving plenty of freedom to adjust her expressions! That will be a big help when posing!   And let’s not forget those big horns! Despite being small parts, they are gorgeously painted in two colors…!     The engagement ring is designed to look like a crown! And its grooves can be secured with the horns, preventing it from falling or slipping out of place! That’s convenient! The design also plays a role in the function… amazing! Is that design on the back of the ring a snake? I’d like to learn more about that…!   And now for the face parts! Four facial expressions are included, just like Lumitea! Her lively expression makes it seem as if she’s about to start talking; it’s hard to decide which face to choose…! Which one is your favorite? Of course, the face parts are interchangeable with Lumitea’s! Be sure to see the customization examples in the second half of the article!   ■  Torso Parts Next, let’s take a look at the torso parts! The number of pre-painted parts is unbelievable! The necktie parts are painted in three colors: navy blue, light purple, and gold! The ribbon at the base of the tail and the gold parts for the lower chest are quite small and easy to lose, so be careful when removing them from the runner! I recommend putting masking tape on the parts before cutting to prevent them from flying off! The painted parts work very well, and the coloring is as good as that of a fully-assembled figure product, even though this is just out-of-the-box! The back has a hexagonal joint, so it will be fun to customize with parts from the HEXA GEAR series as well as Lumitea! Her tail is connected by a 3mm joint, and the ribbon at the base is also pre-painted, despite being such a small part! Vel-sama is so adorable!!   Also, the shoulder joints can be swiveled, so they can be turned quite a bit forward!   The skirt has a 3mm joint connection and two 3mm connection points for “Wilize Mode” providing plenty of opportunities for customization!   The tail part features joint articulation at the base and has two rotation points, allowing you to customize the pose without compromising the appearance! The demonic sculpt is so cool!   ■  Arms Parts The arm parts are disassembled into several fine parts! The hand parts are newly sculpted and designed to look devilishly sharp, which is really cool!   The gold rings on the arms and white sleeves are separately colored; this is a very colorful kit, molded in four colors!   New angled wrist joints are included to avoid interference with the sleeves! This is an innovative new design that will really help when posing her!   ■ Leg Parts The thighs have the same pop out design as Lumitea’s! When I saw the dark blue pattern on her thighs in the illustration, I wondered how it would be sculpted, but it has been beautifully reproduced thanks to very clever parts separation! Observing how the model has been assembled from individual parts is one of the most interesting aspects of building plastic models!   The legs have the same structure as Lumitea’s, so while they maintain their beauty when extended, the range of motion can be expanded by pulling out the joints, allowing the legs to bend sharply. Of course, the ankles and toes are also movable! The feather decoration on the ankle ring is also connected by a 3mm connection!   As with Lumitea, Bachi-P’s special base is included! This time it’s molded in clear purple, a perfect match for Velretta’s image! Makes me wonder what color bases we’ll be getting in the future!   One of the features of her normal mode is the large umbrella! It’s heavy, but as you can see in the picture, there are support parts that can be connected by 3mm connections, so it can be easily held up!   You can assemble it as it is without any problems, but the drill-like part at the tip of the umbrella is pretty sharp, so it will be easier to assemble it if you protect your hand with a tissue or something!   And with that… Normal Mode complete!     Devilishly cute!   You can easily see the benefits of the movable side bangs and newly-designed wrists! What’s more, the large umbrella and other features unique to Normal Mode are really fun to play with!   Let’s take a look at her side by side with Lumitea! Angel and devil… white and black… the contrast between their respective designs is interesting! Lumitea is about a head taller. It’s more fun when you have more characters, isn’t it? Lumitea looks so happy!   Customizations with Lumitea   Lumitea and Velretta have interchangeable face and ear parts. Let’s try it out! Here is a shot of Velretta with Lumitea’s smiling face and ears attached. She’s so cute… I’m blown away…! She’s transformed from the mischievous Vel into a fluffy beauty!   For Lumitea, I swapped out Velretta’s open-mouthed smile and ears! She looks more like an elf or a vampire than a devil! Velretta has several distinctive features, such as her slightly visible fangs, and her pointed ears, so there’s a big change in the appearance when these parts are swapped! I’m sure I’ll want to play around with swapping parts every time a new Dears comes out…! Of course, the other three faces can also be swapped, so users can try them out for themselves! Her snickering face is fabulous…!   Wilize Mode!   Now let’s take a look at what everybody’s been waiting for: Her Wilize Mode!   Let’s get right to it… ■ Transform!   Ta-daaaah!! Velretta! Wilize Mode!!! In Normal Mode, she had cute little devilish wings, but in Wilize Mode, she has four large wings, pointing up and down! Her skirt changes dramatically as well, expanding her silhouette! And her right leg and left shoulder are now armor-clad, so her defense seems to be pretty high!   Impressions and Further Information   My impression of Velretta is that there are so many colorful pre-painted parts that even straight out-of-the-box she looks great, and the kit will give fans more than enough to enjoy! Also, as mentioned in my comments for each section, most of the connections use 3mm joints, so you can easily rearrange the parts even of just this kit alone! Of course, it will be fun to customize the kit with M.S.G series parts or other Kotobukiya products too. I’ll put up examples of my work in a blog post like I did with Lumitea  (available in Japanese only) when I have something good! I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s original Velrettas! By the way…the images in today’s blog were taken with a Toruhako, Kotobukiya’s photo booth product! The underwater background that was included was perfect for capturing Velretta’s atmosphere! It’s easy to carry around and prepare for the shoot, so I recommend it to anyone who wants to experiment with scale model photography but doesn’t have a lot of space…! Unfortunately, the lottery-based order window has closed, but we are considering offering it to the public, so please keep an eye out for further announcements. Thanks for reading all the way through to the end! See you next time!

In January 2022, we have decided to announce the reproduction, so if you didn't get it this time, please give us another chance! As such, Lumitea is scheduled to be reproduced in [January 2022]. Isn't it! This article is recommended for those who This part of "Lumitea" is amazing! point Be careful here when assembling Lumitea! point I would like to introduce you. "Yurumitia" will appear everywhere, so please keep an eye out and take a look at the points of interest ! I received Bachi-P's hot baton pass, so I would like to do my best to write a blog! ⬇ Then go ahead! ⬇ Click here for the menu on the page! Start with normal mode! Let's switch to Willize mode! Next time preview Start with normal mode! Opened! Last blog "Finally unveiled! After the Lumitea product package was released, many people responded on SNS, saying, "This box is thick from the first release...!" Lumitea is a kit that can be assembled by recombination of "Normal mode" in the body state and "Willize mode" in the armed state in one package . Especially in "Willise Mode", the wings are bigger and the armor around the suspension is increased, so the silhouette changes completely, so this amount of parts is a satisfying volume! Just by looking at it, you can see how well it fits together! head parts This is a runner with hair parts. Hmmm…. this is…! Even though he's a short-haired character, the parts are very detailed! ! ! That should be it... Look at this back hair part! In order to reproduce this three-dimensional effect, [8 parts] (excluding the base part) are also used... You can really see how serious the designer is...! There are many sharp and pointed parts, so be careful not to poke your fingers! And the part that I wanted to tell everyone how good it is! That's the ear! please look! Split this part! If there is one left and one right, it tends to be a very small part, but what a one-piece! Even those who want to customize their ears will appreciate this! We are waiting for the sample! And don't forget face parts! Lumitea comes with 4 facial expression parts! One up! What do you think! The fineness of the eyes of this tampo printing! The image of the eyes of Mr. necömi, who drew the character illustration of Lumitea, has been incorporated into the plastic model as it is! To borrow the words of an in-house developer... "There's a universe in your eyes..." terrible! I talked too much with just my head. Next! Next! body parts Don't worry about parts around the torso! The gold and white parts around the hip joints are pre-painted parts , so it's a good point that the details can be improved even with just the unassembled parts! The golden texture is also luxurious and very nice! The 4 parts on the front side of the skirt are also articulated! (Details will be explained in Willize mode!) And here is what I want to raise as a discerning point! ! Another painted part is this neck ribbon! When trying to color-code paint on a very detailed part, the size makes me a little nervous... but it's okay! The factory workers have finished it with beautiful paints, so even a "non-kneader" like me can feel at ease ! leg parts It was also introduced in the past Arcanadea live stream, [Arcanadea] Introducing the first knee joint mechanism! I will introduce the internal structure by removing the parts on the front side of the thigh! The second image above is the parts used for the knee joint. While keeping the leg lines beautiful when the legs are extended, the range of motion can be expanded by pulling out the joint parts when bending the legs ! When you bend your legs like this, you pull out the axis, so there's a lot of clearance! And your feet are amazing! In order to reproduce the standing pose of the illustration as it is, the gold on the tip and the black on the sole are color-coded. Be careful when attaching the legs! The parts around the waist are very delicate and the hip joints are quite stiff, so be careful not to damage the parts when assembling! It was easier for me to attach the skirt part by holding down the base of the skirt part as much as possible and pushing the bearing of the hip joint diagonally upwards! * This method is not guaranteed, so please try the method that is easy for you. Don't get me wrong... Did you notice the image above? That's right! I forgot the gold thigh ring! ! ! ! ! ! Don't forget everyone! engagement ring parts When talking about Arcanadea, you can't miss this part! yes! [Engagement ring parts]! This part does not have a pin to fix it, so it will be fun to fix it with a little ingenuity! There is a dent like this on the back of the ring, but if you put a kneaded eraser on it and put it on your head, it will be stable! Please try it! * Please note that leaving it as it is for a long time may lead to parts damage. display base parts The plastic model of the Arcanadea series comes with a special display base ! The base of the arm can be selected from a cylindrical type and a ball joint type , so you can use it according to your preference! It's a point that makes me a little happy! Here are the 3 images above... you get the idea... Each motif of [Seraph], [Demonic tribe], and [Phantom beast tribe] appearing in the Arcanadea series is designed! Furthermore, this exhibition base. There is also a behind-the-scenes story that Arcanadea Producer Bachi-P himself created it using CAD. You can do anything... it's amazing! and…! Normal mode complete! Let's move around a little and play! Posing with a sharp face is fun, but this "funny smile part" is the cutest and irresistible! Let's switch to Willize mode! Well, next is the true value of the Arcanadea series! Let me introduce you to Willize Mode! First of all, don this! ! ! I tried arranging the parts list when switching to Wirise mode! Since there are so many parts, the image will change completely when you transform into Wirise mode! leg armor parts (Hey, it was hard to line up...!😅) This color coding! I'd love to! I want everyone to see it! And I want you to team up and experience it! The greatness here that you can understand by assembling! I thought, "Are you going to color-code that much?" wing parts Everyone please wait! The part that many people are most interested in in Lumitea is probably the [Wings]! You can already feel the three-dimensionality and dynamism that makes you feel like you're about to take off from the runner! The number of parts is 8 parts except for the base of the connection part. I think that it may be a little small, but the movement is amazing ...! This is a point that I would like you to experience for your hands! And finally...! Transform! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Birthday! ! Lumitea! Willize mode! ! ! I think you'll be able to feel the powerful and solid feeling that is different from the beautiful curvaceousness of the normal mode! As for the movable parts of the legs, the 4 parts on the front side of the skirt are movable, so the legs have a good range of motion! The action pose is also as you like! Let's have some fun! The wings give it a great sense of depth! When I was taking pictures, I thought that Lumitea looks great no matter where you take it, so let's take a picture when it's finished! I'm sure you know how much fun it is! Next time preview I've been writing a blog so far after receiving a hot baton pass from Bachi-P, but in this flow, I have to pass the hot baton to the next person in charge...! So next time notice! Next time, Kotobukiya's [that person] will introduce an example of a modified model using "Lumitea"! Kotobukiya's in-house genius of recombination , if you say interesting examples , that person! I'm really looking forward to seeing what kind of examples will pop out! It will be updated around mid-January , so don't miss it! Well, thank you very much for your long time! See you next time! Well then ~~👋 © KOTOBUKIYA

ARCANADEA Blog: Lumitea Product Specs Overview

Originally published in Japanese on May 27, 2021 Hello everyone! This is Ba-chi, the producer of ARCANADEA. Did you catch the promotional video we released last week? What did you think? The warm comments we received from everyone really thrilled the entire staff here. Thanks so much! Perhaps the part that was most surprising was…   The Dears can eat food! Unlike the characters from Frame Arms Girl or Megami Device, the Dears are living creatures, not robots or Battle Hobby kits, so wouldn’t it be great if there are fun food-related episodes in the upcoming stories? Also, as you can see from the new video, they are the same size as characters from FA Girl and Megami Device, so there may be something related to this in the future…or maybe not? As suggested in some of the comments we received, it will be interesting to see battle scenes, how their real world changed after the explosion at the research institute, and other aspects of this world. We hope to bring you all that and more as things develop, so we look forward to your continued support! I’d like to bring together many of the bits of information that we’ve been releasing on Twitter and at various events, and bring you a comprehensive overview of the first release of the series, Lumitea. Some of the images are appearing for the first time here, so be sure to read through to the end!   Product Specifications   ■  About the Size Let’s start with the size. Although the model is described as NON-scale, the height is planned to be close to that of FA Girl, slightly taller than Gourai and about the same size as Stylet.   This photo gives a good idea of the width of the model when the wings are folded. Note the range of motion in the wings; they can fold over and cover the front side of Lumia (short for Lumitea). It had been a while since I last handled the paint masters of GOURAI-KAI and STYLET XF-3, and I’m impressed at how great these models still are. The overall volume, sculpt, articulation, and customizability of the new model are all on par with these; and to think that Arcanadea exists thanks to these girls reminds me of the greatness of Nouchi’s planning and Shimizu’s sculpts. (I’m too embarrassed to praise them in person, so I’ll just write it here; they probably won’t see it.) I strongly recommend building one of these models if you haven’t yet. If you build Lumia after building these other girls, you’ll be able to appreciate the techniques that were passed down to the new model…or something like that. I guess… lol   ■ Facial Expression Parts Speaking of techniques that were passed down from the FA Girl series, the Arcanadea series parts will come with four different types of facial expressions pre-printed with tampography! The four expressions we’ve created range from faithfully reproduced expressions in the original design materials to cute looks full of personality. Which is your favorite?   ■ Focus on Articulation By changing out certain parts, the model can portray either non-combat “Normal Mode” or the combat “Wilize Mode.” The Normal Mode features a simple and light design. But the most interesting point is the leg joints, which feature an all-new design! By incorporating pop out type double joints, the slender beauty of her legs is maintained when they are straight, as there are no visible joints or raised surfaces for articulation when viewed from the front. When posing the legs, the joints can extend out to provide a sufficient range of motion, allowing the knees to pose into virtually any position. So one of the model’s key points is definitely the way we’ve achieved both form and function! And while we slightly changed the model’s pose in the images above, take another look at the waist from the photo above: For the sake of clarity, I removed the parts behind the waist, but did you notice? The feather-like skirt, which extends from Lumia’s sides down to her waist, has front pieces that are independently movable! This allows Lumia’s legs to be posed in various positions without the skirt interfering, expanding your creative possibilities for posing! While it is a small point, this is the kind of detailed sculpt that you can expect to enjoy with the models of this series. I really hope that you will be able to obtain one soon and enjoy both the sculpt and articulation.   ■ Connection Points Wilize Mode is for combat, so the model wears decorated armor. The characteristic wings are also enlarged creating a striking change into a model with an overall pure, sparkling appearance.   In Wilize Mode, the number of hard points has increased making more armor combinations possible. Depending on the tactical situation, the large, decorated armor on her legs can be moved to her shoulders, for example.   As some of you have already noticed and mentioned, and as we’ve shown in some of the images, her iconic wings emerge from the magic circle on the back, and the connection points for the magic circle part and the main body use the same shape that’s in our HEXA G-R.A.M System. If the connection point on the back were to connect with the large wings—or any other upcoming parts—via a round joint, the weight of the parts could cause them to easily rotate out of position to either side, so this was an area we needed to make especially rigid. So it was necessary to create a polygon shape that would not rotate and could be firmly fixed at an angle. Since we had enough space in the design, we sort of adopted the HEXA G-R.A.M standard on the spur of the moment, as it would reinforce both strength and interchangeability. Some folks have pointed out this link to our HEXA GEAR products in the comments, but those who also enjoy the world of HEXA GEAR can rest assured. Currently there is no relationship between the two series. We just hope you’ll enjoy the even greater possibilities that this part’s interchangeability provides. As for the connection joints for other accessories and decorations, you’ll find the familiar 3mm joint that is also present in other Kotobukiya original plastic model series, allowing for great customization.   ■ Mixing and Matching I am sure many of you are already thinking of various ideas for customization, so I’m only going to share two examples to avoid spoiling the fun. As we have already shown you in some previous images of the sculpt reveal, you can simply make your favorite girl into an angel! I mean, a mecha girl in a bunny suit as an angel? She’s perfect !   With a little help from our M.S.G parts and HRESVELGR=ATER, we have a half mecha-girl design! I think stuff like this is fun! What’s more, two additional neck joint parts are included—one for FA Girl and one for Megami Device—so if you happen to have built either of those, you can enjoy customization with them as well. The diameter of the ball joint for Lumitea’s neck is the same as those used in the FA Girl series, so some characters can be swapped as they are. Lumitea’s neck is designed a little shorter than characters from FA Girl, so the neck joint parts for FA Girl compatibility are slightly longer to fit some characters.   I had Gourai’s anime version head on hand and swapped it with Lumia, only to be surprised at how natural the combination came out.   ■ The ____ can also be customized! Well, we are almost at the end, but I’ll leave you with this last pair of images. Did you notice the difference between the two? If you figured it out right away, that’s pretty amazing! You have great potential as a Dearmaster!       ・・・       ・・・・・       The answer is “ears!”   The theme of Arcanadea is “Science Fiction x Fantasy,” and there are many different species in fantasy settings besides angels and demons, right? Some species have different ear shapes, some wear ear ornaments, and going forward some may even wear earrings or cuffs that match those of their masters, right?? So, with that in mind, the Dears’ ears have been designed as separate parts. For now, due to the shape of their hair and facial contours, we can’t guarantee that all characters will have fully customizable ears, but we thought that if we could make the ears as interchangeable as possible, it would help the owners of each model to bring out their originality in yet another way. By the way! You know that cute demon-style character we revealed in an illustration we posted the other day? The one with the slightly pointed ears that have a heart decoration… They fit perfectly on Lumia, too! Keep your eye out for more images coming in the future!     So, did you enjoy our introduction of new information and images covering Lumia’s features? — Yes. — Yes, I did. — I can’t wait for her to arrive. — That’s all I’m thinking about now! To be perfectly honest, I feel the same way as everyone else does! Even I’m a little scared of handling this paint master – there’s only one in the world! ※ This photo with Lumitea on his shoulder was taken with a Kotobukiya employee who just happened to be around!   That’ll be all for today.

ARCANADEA Blog: Introducing ARCANADEA, a Plastic Model Kit Series by Kotobukiya!

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting our blog. My name is Shohei Chiba, and I am in charge of planning and producing our new series, ARCANADEA. In product blogs and at hobby events, many folks refer to me as “Ba-chi,” so please feel free to call me by that name! My new project Arcanadea was announced at Wonder Festival 2020 Winter. I regret that I can’t say much about it at this point, but I would like to share a little bit about how this project came about, and what we have planned for the future. And while this is just a blog post, I would also like to share a few words from a special guest, so I hope you’ll take the time to read through to the end. Now let’s get started by showing you our first key image! As the Japanese text in the graphic explains, Arcanadea is a new fantasy-themed character plastic model kit series! In this blog entry, I’d like to tell you a little bit about how this project first started, and its overall theme. These days I’m working on plastic models of characters, but before I joined the Planning Team, I was a CAD sculptor for plastic models as a member of the Sculpting Team, and primarily helped design licensed robot-related products. After that, I helped with sculpts for the Frame Arms Girl series (hereafter “FA Girl”), and when the anime project launched, I worked on checking the show’s visuals at the production studio as well as working to promote the show. So, from sculpting, anime production, to planning and development, I’ve been involved in the character plastic model industry for at least five years. I think I probably have the broadest experience among those in the Planning Team. Among these experiences, the most important for me was the Frame Arms Girl anime. Up to that point, plastic models were just something you built, painted according to the package or illustration, and then displayed in your favorite pose. However, when the anime aired, I felt a change in the community and its culture. Not only did we have users that were plastic model fans already, but we now had fans that would pick up the hobby for the first time after gaining interest through the anime. In addition to social media, we have had many opportunities to see our fans’ creations at events and Niconico live streams. Many would send us incredibly creative pictures of their characters blending into their daily lives; photos of their characters in interesting locations they visited, cute clothes or rooms they made for their characters… We even saw a photo of FA Girl models at the Arc de Triomphe in France. Some fans made special cases to bring their creations to events, and a few even came to visit us with characters peeking out of their shirt pockets. I could clearly see that the users were enjoying the series not just as a product or a work, but also as a character, as a partner of their own. This turned into the main catalyst for this project: To create something where users could feel a strong “connection” or “bond” between themselves and their characters; something they could become more deeply immersed in. And that is what led us to the theme for this project: Will you engage with me? When one thinks of the word “engage, ” something that comes quickly to mind is an engagement ring, or in other words, a marriage engagement or contract with your partner, right? Note how the title logo for Arcanadea also includes the rings that one might associate with this theme of engagement. Of course, this word has other meanings as well! It can mean “to draw in,” “to become involved in,” and in military terms, “to fight against” or “to battle.” So just like the word “engage” itself, we want to develop this series to contain these various elements. By “drawing in” as many users as possible and for them to find captivating characters to “contract” with—whether it be to fight together or to develop a bond—we hope to make this series enjoyable in a variety of ways and become a part of our users’ lives. To launch this series, we will start with plastic models, but of course, our aspiration is to create something big enough to grow into other genres as well! While I’m a bit hesitant to say this myself, with this new Arcanadea series, we are planning on creating a world and setting on a vast scale! The main character designer who will be building this new world with us is necömi , a prolific designer of VTubers (virtual YouTubers) and illustrator for light novels, mobile games, and more! Twitter: https://twitter.com/necomi_info Tumblr: https://necomiinfo.tumblr.com/ We have received a comment from necömi, which we would like to share with you below: Hello, my name is necömi and I am an illustrator!   I usually work on character design and illustrations, but this was my first time working on a plastic model project and to be honest, there were many parts that I found difficult.   However, it was a lot of fun to develop my concepts while actually handling and playing with Kotobukiya’s plastic models, and I think I was able to create designs that are both fun and expandable!   I look forward to creating characters who will be great partners for everyone who plays with them, and I hope you look forward to meeting them!   necömi   This is the first time that we’ve worked together, and we are getting along great as many of our outside interests are also very similar. I will often make some wild or ambitious requests, but necömi always happily accepts and creates fascinating characters one after another at an unbelievable pace! In addition to the character shown in the key graphic, we’ve already come up with many other fascinating characters, and I look forward to sharing them with everyone soon! Since this was the first entry, I focused on the background and theme of the project, but in the next post I would like to talk about the project’s fantasy genre as well. Thanks for reading this post. I’ll wrap it up here today, and I hope everyone is really looking forward to our new series Arcanadea!   Ba-chi © KOTOBUKIYA
