Loretta's Toy News
August 10, 2006

At my local Japanese market, I found some new Bandai figures, had to snare a Togepi:


I also managed to find a Bandai Manaphy keychain; I couldn't find any scans on Bandai's site (well, it's in Japanese--and the product is brand new to boot!), but, the series from which it came has other characters from the 2007 Japanese movie release. The keychains are "action"--you tug (gently, please! :) on the chain and the character moves in some fashion. Kyogre flaps its fins and the Manaphy I got closes its eyes, too cute!

Lastly, if you haven't picked up the Sept. Nintendo Power yet, I have to say, the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon comic insert "Ginji's Rescue Team" will be of interest to younger manga fans. It was translated from a Corocoro series released last year in Japan; Nintendo has respected the original right to left Japanese format (THANK YOU!!!) and also seems to have kept the original Japanese character's name intact, "Ginji." Props to them for that; I made sure I sent in my reply/comment card to express my appreciation for this bonus and how it was handled. I still cringe whenever I see Satoshi (Ash!) eating rice cakes and they call 'em "donuts." Anyhow, the manga follows the adventures of schoolboy Ginji as he awakens one day to find himself turned into a Torchic who meets up with a somewhat timid Mudkip and they go on one wild rescue adventure (to be continued in 5 more Nintendo Power issues). Obviously, a giant ad for the September video game releases, buy, hey, it's manga, yay! :)
