Survey: Summer Break edition 2013 Kotobukiya es wants to make your man! (bishonen, boy, male figures, figurines)

Summer Break 2013 survey by Kotobukiya for female-oriented goods and figures!

So busy orz;;; but managed to post this since it is time-sensitive. Anyway, Kotobukiya has opened a survey soliciting suggestions for their es series of figures that are targeted for the female audience.

1) Title: Kotobukiya Summer Break 2013 (female targeted) figure/goods survey コトブキヤ 2013夏休み 女性向け商品化希望アンケート!
Survey for Japanese works. Link:
(Survey for general audience figures. Similar questions:
Closing date: 4 August 2013

I haven’t had the time to think about this in detail yet cos some wish-listed goods and figures characters from the previous years were manufactured by Kotobukiya, like the awesome Dream Cushions of Utapri and DRRR!!, figures from Yu Yu Hakusho, etc. Some items were manufactured by other companies, like No.6 Dakimakura cover and 1/7 scaled Figure of Aoba from Dramatical Murder. Btw, Goodsmile is planning to make Nendoroid of Aoba too! OMG! I will post when I have time.

Let’s discuss and share your wishlists here before we post so that we can make a full offensive for characters we want XD

I suggest entering the Japanese names of the titles and characters. If you’re not sure how to write them, please discuss with us :D As always, Google is your friend too.

In case you’re not sure what the questions mean, here’s the quick translation:

  1. OMG nendoroid Aoba *A* yes plz though am still waiting for one coin DMMD where are they D: kind of unusual. I’d love to see figures of the other characters though I have the 1/7 Aoba but hopefully the other guys wouldn’t cost the same as him or we’d all be broke XD. I would also love to see Omerta figures (and re-release of lamento would be nice because I missed the chance to get them and now its pretty much impossible unless you’re ok blowing $100 on a used figure) ahh there’s too many I’d like to see.

  2. This is brilliant! Do you have a myfigurecollection account? Because you could post this as a blog on there and gain more voters!

    If not, may I be allowed to create a blog post there and copy/paste the relevant survey details? I will acknowledge and link to you in the end of the post.

    I ask because I believe this would make a lot of people happy ^^
