PSP Takuyo Mix Box First Anniversary - Preorder

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» Our first Takuyo-published game import was a Saturn title named E'tude Prologue. That was back in the winter of 1998 when Sega's Saturn was still in contention. Takuyo had published Super Famicom and Gameboy games prior to their transition to the Saturn and eventually the Dreamcast and Playstation 2 where it unleashed a bevy of RPGs and interactive adventures. The company's still going strong and later this year, they're releasing a collection of mini-games featuring characters culled from 10 selections in Takuyo's library of software.

Fans will get to challenge an assortment of characters, watch a new cinematic introduction, and win credits upon successful completion of the mini-game challenges. The credits may be used to purchase and unlock special features in the software such as voice samples, illustrations, and BGM. Sounds like a lot of fun.

The Gekko figure stands at attention at 14cm tall but if you bop him on the noggin, his head will undulate up and down for a few seconds before resting.

In the manga/anime, Gekko uses the scissors to snip the shadows from hapless victims which he uses to animate his zombie underlings.

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» When Kanu Unchou is alone in her boudoir, she dresses herself in ribbon-width undergarments and proceeds to cup her own bosom with both hands. It has to be true because that's what Taki Corporation has wrought with their latest interpretation of the Ikkitousen superstar.

Kanu is dressed with hosiery on her legs, lacey armlets around her biceps, a whisper of frilly underwear, and a thick red ribbon which covers her bosom and terminates into a bow on front.

PC One Piece 3D Mouse Pad - Import Re-Preorder for July 2010

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» The girls of One Piece are generally attractive and have a bit of fashion sense. Nico Robin always looks chic and Nami looks better than most female pirates who spend their days on the high seas. The girls of One Piece are also very robust as evidenced by Morimoto's upcoming One Piece 3D Mouse Pads which feature three girls from the popular series. Please note Morimoto has re-opened preorders to ship in July 2010:

» Nami - Her expression seems to convey vulnerability as her ample bosom is barely constrained by a meager bikini.
» Boa Hancock - One of three Gorgon sisters who enjoys a human-appearance as opposed to her younger sisters. Boa's bosom on the mousepad is as plump as her bosom in the One Piece animated series.
» Nico Robin - Nic raises her arms because they just get in the way and all attention must be on her bosom.

The "3D" in the product title refers to the protruding "breasts" that jut out from the bottom of the pad. New preorders are welcome.
