Donyatsu

    Squeenix, I must hand it to you: you have a penchant for picking up interesting yet odd titles.

    Some background.

    Very recently on the figure collecting site I frequent, these things were added to the database that were so cute, so bizzare that a great number of people decided to order them. (I did not, but was seriously thinking about it.) That item?

    myfigurecollection.net/item/116462

    ^This.

    Cute, right? Pure fluff? You might want to rethink this when you see the cover of the source material. myfigurecollection.net/item/136537

    Donyatsu is currently running in the SE anthology Young Gangan and I'm hoping that it gets picked up over here.
    Creepy stuff if you think about it.


    Edit: Some more info: The Mangaka is Kozaki Yusuke, who's worked on Fire Emblem and No More Heroes umong other things. He also has a deviant art account as well. kymg.deviantart.com/


    Good job in securing an oddball title, SE!

    Those are adorable figures. I never heard of Donyatsu before and thanks for bringing this up YukiTsubaki. And good job Square Enix! I'm also surprised Kozaki Yusuke has a deviantART. Definitely following him.

    Just when Donyatsu aren't badass enough, there's this thing. myfigurecollection.net/item/141766


    Wonder Fest exclusive item! I'm surprised that SE isn't releasing figures of their own for their manga series...but this is such an odd title that they've decided to let other companies do their heavy lifting. Good for us fans!


    A good number of great artists have dA accounts. Link to Redjuice's account...if you've not heard of this artist before, you might recognize the pics of Inori on this page. Guilty Crown is also an SE title. redjuice999.deviantart.com/

    Chocolate is a good flavor too: myfigurecollection.net/item/141779


    Donyatsu, second manga is now out. myfigurecollection.net/item/143535


    Still, surprised that SE has other companies making these...

    I'm seeing a lot of new Donyatsu phone straps out recently. Phone straps make nice Christmas tree ornaments! Merchandise for the series seems to have taken on a life of their own separate from the manga!

    ...And for those whose wish for said Donyatsu straps went unfilled, here is your wish granted!
