Goodsmile Racing performed very well in last night’s 800km race during SUPER GT Round 5 at Fuji Speedway, and secured a 2nd place victory! The victory brings the team to a total of 49 points, and 5th place ranking overall in the GT300 class for the season thus far. With 3 races left to go for the season, this definitely puts a championship victory in GSR’s sights.

A 1st place victory in this race proved difficult, likely due to a combination of GSR’s 32kg handicap, and the competing BMW ARTA M6 simply proving too fast. Hopefully good strategies and performance will turn positive results in the future races!

SUPER GT Round 6 will be in SUGO September 15th~16th. Fight, GSR!

If you’re heading to Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2018 in Osaka or Tokyo, then you’re in for a special treat! The previously teased Hatsune Miku: Magical Mirai 2017 ver. Nendoroid will be making its prerelease debut at Good Smile Company’s booths at the exhibitions.

The nendoroid wonderfully recreates last year’s Magical Mirai main visual art design by iXima, and comes with three different faceplates: A gentle smile, and open-mouthed happy smile, and and lastly a cheering smiling face, based on artwork by illustrator Nokuhashi! Additional accessories include the microphone staff, and a nendoroid-sized glow stick (finally)!

She’ll be available at the events for 4700 JPY ($43 USD), with additional preorder details coming later! Check out the gallery below.
