Super Sonico, that eternally kawaii 18 year old had her birthday recently. Not the character turning of age but the date of her creation was October 14, 2006 meaning she’s been around for ten years already…time goes flying! Here’s her birthday greeting which is too cute:

I love reporting on Super Sonico, I know everyone isn’t a fan but I think she’s dead kawaii. Especially her band mates in First Astronomical Velocity. Here are some pics courtesy of Tsuji Santa, he happens to be the behind the Nitroplus mascot, Super Sonico. The pics show off the Super Pochaco bunny figure, Super Sonico plus First Astronomical Velocity summer festival yukata figures and Wing’s Office Lady Sonico. And yes, they’re completely stunning and gorgeous!
Nitroplus have taken the covers of their mascot 2014 release, Super Sonico. She’s been updated with a tan and a black swim suit with a slightly elevated price. She stands tall at 90cm making it one that will tower over most of the figures in your collection.
Fans of Super Sonico waiting for the release of the 3DS game will be disappointed to hear that the game has been delayed. The game, SoniPro, doesn’t have a new release date only sometime in 2014 is all that we know. However the good news is that the delay has allowed developer Imageepoch to announce that the game will have first print run copies come bundled with a special bonus.
SoniPro will now be coming with SoniPro Special Song CD which comes with the tracks Game,” “Spaceship,” “Surreal,” “Wonderin’ Night,” “Paradise Summer,” “Dream Again,” “Run Hi,” “Music Fighter,” and “Namida.” Now that’s something worth waiting for.
And now for a really cute figure update. Good Smile Company have just opened up orders for this amazingly cute figure of a young Super Sonico as a tomboy model. GSC are handling the distribution responsibilities for designer of the figure, Wing.
The design of the figure comes from the inside sleeve of the PC game, Sonicomi. The figure as in the illustration of the first print run game sees Sonico making a mess of things with cake all over her hands. The figure is fully posable and she bends at the waist so you’re able to sit her down.
Here are the all important low down on the specs!

¥7,300 (Before Tax)

In the past few weeks, we’ve becomes HUGE fans of Nitroplus girl, Super Sonico. We agree that her anime wasn’t quite what some people were expecting but we can’t get enough of it!

Super Sonico is the spokesperson for Nitroplus music but also happens to be starring in her own anime these days. So in a stroke of genius promoting, she made an appearance at the Winter WonFes over the weekend and brought along her scary manager for the ride.
Super Sonico and manager, Kitamura, complete with devil mask were in attendance as life sized models that fans could take their picture with.
As a new fan of Super Sonico, Japandaman approves of this 🙂
