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: It looks like reported coronavirus cases in Japan have stayed fairly stable since the country's state of emergency was lifted. Unless there's a major spike in cases, don't think we have to worry about production delays for this season.

Dream: Currently on the third and last volume to the True Tenchi Muyo light novels, Washu. Got about 40-50 pages left to read of it before I'd say I'm done.

Taka: Nice, that reminds me to finish watching Tenchi Geminar and GXP.

Taka: Virtual anime conventions - this year has been taking twists and turns. People are making adjustments. I think I spend over 100 dollars every time I go to Anime Expo each year (counting in total of badge cost, food, transportation, and merchandise).

Taka: I'll be saving money. Though, the pandemic has caused a lot of folks to have reduced hours, took time off, or laid off. Most folks' disposable income is a bit tight.

Dream: Done with TTM. See if I can get a review for it up sometime tonight.

Taka: Happy 4th of July to those who live in the states!

Dream: With Appare Ranman resuming in a few weeks, guess I'll cream through whatever episodes were released before its delay to see if I'll stick with the remaining ones this season.

Taka: So Tenchi Geminar has a school full of mostly girls just like Infinite Stratos and many harem shows.
Jul 8, 2020 6:50:40 GMT
Dream: Yeah. After Tenchi Muyo, Masaki Kajishima dabbled into several other harem titles, some of which not being based in the Tenchi timeline, which all have the same resolution of where the male lead "has them all." But they aren't really as popular.

Taka: I need to finish Geminar and GXP. Just cancel FUNimation which leaves me until July 23rd unless there are at least 3 shows that catch my eye from this season.
