A settei (groundworks/designs) package from Love Live! Sunshine!! includes seven sheets of color guidance and reference, plus 38 sheets of design guidelines, shadow referring and character models. Even the sale's preview is offering some insight into the Aqours designs.
I'm used to seeing figures, figmas, nendoroids, hug pillows, oppai/oshiri pads but never dolls.
Kanagawa-based doll company Azone International has listed a 1/6 scale PureNeemo doll of Chika Takami from the Love Live! Sunshine!! anime franchise, wearing the costume for Aqours' 1st single "Kimi no Kokoro wa Kagayaiteru kai," for a July 2017 release. The line previously released the dolls of the nine members of the first series' idol unit μ's, and other members of the second series' Aqours are also planned to be added soon.
The price for the regular set of the Chika doll is 14,040 yen (including tax/about 127 US dollars), and a limited set including the uniform of her Uranohoshi Girls' Academy school uniform is available only at Premium Bandai at 16,200 yen (146 US dollars).

Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.

Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.

Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.

Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.

Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
