Title: KNT Art at Character Designer Tenko's Blog
Post by: felineki on March 18, 2008, 09:30:49 pm
Noritaka Suzuki (aka Tenko), one of the character designers for KNT, draws KNT characters every now and then at his blog. (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko) I came across his blog thanks to a reference to it at the website of Yuki Kosuzu (a Japanese KNT fan and doujinshi creator). This thread will serve to provide links to and discussion of all KNT-related art there. There's lots of other nice art there too, I'd recommend looking around.

Great, you got the blog of Noritaka Suzuki. Thanks for sharing it.

By the way, he appears in KNT manga:

I suppose it could just be an alternate rendering of Pururun, but it looks quite different from the rest of his drawings of Pururun on the blog. I've seen plenty of art before where one character is dressed as another, so I figured that was likely what this was.

How long's it been - about 20 years since it was shown in Japan? It's amazing that he's still going with the KNT characters!
Is anyone able to translate what's been written next to the drawings?

Otama (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/view/20060917)
I love that one, as well as the one of her on the manga page Daisensei posted. Very cute.

The dude in the middle is Tekkaman Blade I believe.
His alter-ego is "D-Boy" which stands for "Dangerous Boy."

All these pictures are very nice. Great quality, and it's good on the eyes to see some of these simple yet beautiful shots.

Awesome litte pics, there. At least KNT hasn't been forgotten! :)

The text with the picture of Pururun in a pan seems to refer to an urban legend about a cat and a microwave oven (maybe a Japanese variant of the urban legend about the poodle being put in a microwave oven to dry it after a bath?).

That's what makes KNT/SPC so great!  Some people have no idea how much money they are losing by not releasing the show for reruns and DVDs.  Pizza Cats fans are a loyal bunch!

Suzuki is talking about 'neko nabe'. That word sounds like 'cat dish', so the author made a drawing of Pururun being cooked. Actually 'neko nabe' is a photo/movie contest with cats taking a nap inside a earthenware pot. Check this link (http://moura.jp/culture/nekonabe/) to see more, though it's still creepy.

Yay, Noritaka made a reply to my request!!! It's hard to believe it's happening! In his blog he said:
A character from 18 years old Japanese animation...?
This is a reference for a comment posted in the 12th entry of this month.
It gives me a pretty weird feeling.

Wow, it must have been nice having a small talk with one of the creators of Teyandee. You think maybe we could ask him to make his own KNT stories or special mangas. Forgive me, I'm probably just holding my breath.


Title: Re: Karamaru art by Tenko
Post by: felineki on April 10, 2008, 04:16:04 pm
He's probably too busy to do much KNT-related stuff these days. In the past, he has submitted short comics and illustrations to various doujinshi. But as the show gets older, doujin projects become less frequent and less comprehensive (some of the KNT doujins from the early to mid 90's feature material from dozens of different contributors), such submissions would seem to become less likely. For now, I wouldn't expect much more than the occasional KNT-related art posted to his blog.

Post by: Daisensei on April 16, 2008, 04:11:01 pm
Yesterday Mr. Tenko published a not much happy  :O in his blog. The blog entry hasn't anything related with KNT/SPC though (he says his hair needs to be cut).
The link is: http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/view/20080415 (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/view/20080415)

Hey, that's when he was at Prison Island. LOL, poor Yattarou.  Main characters in anime sure get alot of bad luck, don't they?


Title: Re: Karamaru art by Tenko
Post by: Kits'Okami (fr. Dragonfox) on April 17, 2008, 02:09:17 pm
I was just wondering (but you didn't need to know that)...

Since this guy did both KNT and Eto Rangers (based on what I remember reading somewhere), has he done some Eto art as well as Teyandee?

Translation of Tenko's blog entry:
It grows without being noticed
I'm talking about the hair. I must go to the barber. After some age to be long haired isn't good, since this only attract suspicion.

Hey, that's when he was at Prison Island. LOL, poor Yattarou.  Main characters in anime sure get alot of bad luck, don't they?
I thought it was a reference to the episode KNT26 - Daibouken! Zekkouchou wo sagase (SPC26 - Cold and Crabby in Little Tokyo).



Title: Re: Karamaru art by Tenko
Post by: B.J. on April 29, 2008, 03:59:03 pm
Well, I do remember a bird carrying him on Speedy on "The Terror of Prison Island" in SPC, so that's why I think it's a reference from that episode.

But why does Yattarou always get nearly all of the bad luck? Is it due to his status of being the main character of the anime or something?

Err, this is KNT's character designer we're talking about, not just someone who saw KNT as a kid. And I was referring to the fact that even within KNT, Okinu is a very minor character (a major role in one episode, and a couple of "blink and you'll miss it" cameos later).

Agreed Felineki. Seeing Ruby again is a treat. :) I especially like this rendition of her. It looks & feels more natural. I also like the wind, and the angle the picture was drawn from.

I kinda wish we got to see more of the characters like her in more of the SPC episodes. Not as a constant character, it'd just have been nice to see her in more than 2 episodes. Granted, I don't know what other trouble she could've gotten in to... However since she appears to either not like her glasses, or just forget to wear them, I can see where she'd get herself into a little more trouble here 'n there.

Polly / Pururun as a maid. http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/view/20080909 (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/view/20080909)

My guess is Francine's having some weird fashion crisis. I'd hate to see what the guys ended up wearing.
(If they're lucky, not maid outfits...  :O )

Tenko is complaining about the newcomer waitress of the 'Matsu' restaurant. Her service was slow and she was paying attention for the customers' talk rather for the work. Moreover, she served missoshiru soup only after Tenko has eaten almost all his lunch.
I'm posting a comment in the Tenko's blog. Maybe this would make him more happy to draw KNT characters.

The story makes sense.

Hopefully the gal who was serving him is a quick learner. I'm sure she'll pick up the pace and be able to serve him (and other customers) better in the future. If anything, hopefully the next picture like this we'll see will be of Pururun serving everything to a pleased customer.
... Or at least Pururun in better spirits... Because she looks like she's having a bad day in that one.

A very lovely picture. She looks shy in this one. I'd think that would be moments before the curtains go up, and she's looking at Pururun / Polly, thinking... "No turning back now..."

Man, I just love this guy's art style.

I wonder what sort of reference material he uses.

Well, we know that the Polly / Pururun maid one was due to a bad experience at a restaurant.
As for everything else... I'd say he just has his own style that he picked up as he moved along.

No, I mean from a drawing point.  Does he draw from pure memory?

Hmm... That is a good question. We may have to kindly ask one of our resident translators to be so kind to try to post that question if they have a spare moment.

Tenko said the following:

I'll answer
... because in the 9th a comment with question appeared.
Well, after all I'm the only one “Teyandee” designer in the world, who knows everything about how they have been shaped or what part are linked to somewhere. (the huge enemy robots weren't mine though) The mega-up-parts that had been made by cleaning up the things brought from toy makers haven't remained in my memory, so they will make no appearance in a diary written in carefree style. Nevertheless everything have been stored in files.
I, who hadn't made anything better than magazine illustrations or being manga artist's assistant until then, suddenly became the character designer of a TV animations that would be aired weekly. Thus I draw with great tension, bewilderment and enthusiasm. I remember pretty well all. Except from the colors, since they have been seen only on the screen, they aren't accurate. However for “Okara” I had to see the production's file and also watched some video.


Indeed toy makers dictate the must appear items on TV.  =]


Title: Re: Karamaru art by Tenko
Post by: felineki on October 16, 2008, 04:03:46 pm
Oh, so Teyandee was one of his first character design works? I didn't know that. He certainly did a great job. Thanks a lot for translating his response, it was a very interesting read.

Good to get some KNT history from Tenko-san.  If only we could lure him and some Japanese fans to our poor forgotten Japanese EE board...


Title: Re: Karamaru art by Tenko
Post by: Sinder on October 19, 2008, 12:37:26 am
Toy companies actually do have a lot of control over the content that makes it into certain television shows; Hasbro, for example, maintained a tremendous amount of influence over what showed up in Transformers, and certain characters were created specifically so toys based on them could be sold to children.

It sounds as if Tenko was referring to the extra-topping armor upgrade when he talks about "mega up parts". I keep hearing that Bandai had a stake in the series, so it's entirely possible that this was something that was added to the plot at their insistence so they could sell action figures and model kits later on.


Title: Re: Karamaru art by Tenko
Post by: felineki on October 19, 2008, 02:25:15 am
Yeah, the "Extra Topping" upgrade is called "Mega Up" in KNT. And Bandai was involved with KNT. The show's rights are co-owned by Tatsunoko and Sotsu Agency, the latter of which is affiliated with Bandai. All of the KNT toys and models were by Bandai, as far as I can tell. The magazine that Tatsuya Souma's KNT manga was serialized in was also published by Bandai.

I don't know if Tenko understood my question, but anyway he gave an answer. He said he got nothing about "Teyandee". His job wasn't of an animator so he only made the plans of the characters plus few illustrations.  Moreover, he thinks he watched the series like an ordinary TV viewer at that time.
Anyway he gave us a very cute Usa-hime (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/view/20081121). Seriously, I didn't see a Usa-hime cuter than that.  :-*

Oh-ho, that's awesome.  That's like that weak pose people make right before they go berserk and whup the bad guy into submission with unexplained untapped power.
Tenko is commenting about the announcement of a new toy based an old animation character (Cho Majin Hero Wataru (http://www.sunrise-anime.jp/international/works/detail.php?cid=113)). Besides he told Nyagoking hasn't been remembered for any toy yet, despite being from the same company. Yes, this is sad.  :(

Moreover Tenko said that, with only 9 episodes, there weren't enough raw materials to work and play with. Unlike other compilations, he had impression that the 10th episode was very simple, driven merely by the narration. One of the comments wonders why a compilation episode had been made so early in the series. Would be this another KNT mystery?

Otama as a "dorobou neko". (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/view/20090517) This is a pretty archetypal look in Japanese media. For example, if you're familiar with the Kirby series of video games, you'll notice quite a bit of similarity to TAC (http://kirby.wikia.com/wiki/TAC).

In that blogs entry, the title says "Goodby Michael day", but the comment is about "When the wind blows" animation film.  Tenko is unsure if he would or wouldn't buy its DVD launched lately.

i think that the image of catton is more likely him blowing the crud out of something on a mountain than posing in front of a volcano.... cause his cannons are still smoldering. but, that's just my opinion.

I think this is a reply to my comment in Tenko's early blog entry.

In his latest post, he says it's impossible to draw a 20 years old guest character relying only on his memory. Moreover he comments about that episode, it has been taken much time owing to difficulties in defining Yankee's looks to make them somehow alike Japanese counterparts but also somehow different, and to make images from their names. He feels somehow responsible for the delay in the making of this episode, but he is unsure if the delay was due to his fault, since he worked in a location far from where the series had been produced.

He didn't do any of the animation work, he drew the character design sheets which the animators then used as reference. You can see some examples of the character design sheets here. (http://www.angelfire.com/ca/savespc/model.html) I think he also did illustrations for things like the soundtrack CDs and the VHS boxes.

An earthquake made Tenko wake up at 5:00 am. That day he remembered about how Yattarou fears earthquake (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/comment/20090811/1249980554#comment) (in the episode "Quake, Rattle & Roll", I think).

Tenko depicts a very weird robot toy in this blog entry (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/comment/20091023/1256287705#comment). He found it in a book titled "The Big Illustrated Book of Fake Toys" (not sure if my translation is good...  :P ).
After a short research, I found the photos of the real thing at http://homepage3.nifty.com/oremaga/kemocha/etoranger.htm (http://homepage3.nifty.com/oremaga/kemocha/etoranger.htm). Really this robot is very creepy!  :O

Power Rangers Zeo...you know, before the Eto Rangers modifications...

I have the deluxe version of that toy.  I also have the Red Battle Zord that connects to it (thereby upgrading it's power).  That's not all the Power Rangers robots that I have by far.

I used to have a bunch of megazords as a kid, back when the the series was one big long arc. I even had the limited edition original Megazord (which a boxed version of goes for at least $500 on E-bay) and a few others sparingly throughout the years. Next to legos, I loved playing with those things the most...

Oh, I remember seeing photos of that toy online when I was searching for Eto Rangers stuff. I guess it's supposed to be Kirinder, although it looks nothing like the one in the show. The little character faces in particular are rather creepy. And is that the Pepsi logo on its right shin? :D Funny that Tenko decided to draw it.

Here is a translation of his blog entry:

"After receiving an unusually high number of messages, most from overseas, I feel in obligation to give a reply. Thus I drew this picture. The layout looks like something that already has been seen. Perhaps I had drawn something like this before...? Was it a jacket picture of a video...? Dunno where have I saved it."

The translation isn't completely accurate, because I don't know how to express some phrases in English  :P, but I hope everybody can understand what he meant.

Another post about KNT in the latest Tenko's blog entry (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/comment/20091116/1258362305#comment).

He said:
If “Teyandee” had been aired 1 or 2 years later, perhaps it got help of the big boom of claw vending machine of that time, and many fancy items could be released. I think I said this once already. Not the robot-like toys, but I preferred a plush or something alike toys.

My brother was always good at getting stuff from claw machines.

The Pizza Cats end up not needing to do much of anything because Big Cheese's plan backfires on him when the Ninja Crows realize the machines are full of shinies and spend all their time trying to win prizes instead of fighting the cats. They do, however, have to prevent Bad Bird Good Bird their fellow crow friend from giving in to the mass merchandise madness. When the robot explodes, the crow-d scrambles to claim the goods.

Cute picture. I liked your comment, too: "Naze koonna ni samuinda?" ("Why is it so cold?")  :)

On a related note, one of the things I've found interesting in my Japanese studies is that there's two separate words for "cold": "samui" for weather or atmosphere and "tsumetai" for something that's cold to the touch, like ice.

if we're talking about cold...maybe koon will catch a cold X3
am I right about this?
japanese for wind is kaze...but when you got a cold you also have a "kaze"

Karamaru and Itsumo no... may be seen in my old post (http://www.edoropolis.org/forums/index.php?topic=1836.msg35581#msg35581).
Tenko answered to my request and has drawn Usa-hime/Pricess Vi (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/comment/20091224/1261645724#comment). In his words:
Thus Usako is here.
It's Christmas Eve.
Despite that, if I didn't draw new material, world stops.
Owing to that, I don't want spent any time thinking in something else, and I drew exactly as requested.

Nice to see a new KNT character posted in Tenko's blog.

Today (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/comment/20100115/1263545450#comment) Tenko has drawn :polly: in a similar manner of other characters he did early. She is posing showing her tail.

One thing intrigues me, Tenko did mention in his blog entry that he found in the Amazon.co.jp a western language book entitled "Samurai Pizza Cats" (http://www.amazon.co.jp/Samurai-Pizza-Cats-Lambert-Surhone/dp/6130323328/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=english-books&qid=1263556935&sr=8-1).  :O Moreover he commented that the book is very expensive (about 7500 yen).

I searched about that book in the web, but the only thing I got is this link (http://www.bod.ch/index.php?id=296&objk_id=296787). Doesn't appear to be something we fans are looking for, the cover is unrelated to the TV series. The book looks fake, but could be this possible in Amazon site?  ?:|

I think "Perfect" means "Perfect Paperback" (http://askville.amazon.com/Perfect-Paperback/AnswerViewer.do?requestId=1582828).

Tenko has posted in the same entry (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/comment/20100115/1263545450#comment) an reply for me (funny, he addressed myself as "Daisensei-san", despite I ever had signed as "Nekomata Reikainosuke" in his blog). He seeked the publisher at Amazon (http://www.amazon.co.jp/betascript-publishers/s/qid=1263644466/ref=sr_pg_2?ie=UTF8&rs=52231011&keywords=Betascript%20Publishers&rh=n%3A!52231011%2Ci%3Aenglish-books%2Ck%3ABetascript%20Publishers&page=2) and found many books with similar cover design. Moreover he was in doubt, if the books were mere "traps", why are 2009 the year of publication of all them?

Hinted by Tenko, I seeked for Beta Publishing in the Google and found what appears to be its official site (http://www.betascript-publishing.com/index.php?&act=nav&nav=10049). It claims to publish interesting articles available freely in the Wikipedia in the form of books. I said to Tenko what I found, and about my disbelief to find someone willing to buy such kind of stuff.

Well, if this book was a compilation of "Samurai Pizza Cats" article and other related articles taken from Wikipedia, it is a waste of money. Nevertheless it is still interesting to know how SPC has drawn enough attention to be picked and published for such kind of company.

Tenko remembered 20th year anniversary of "Teyandee" (it was first aired at Feb 1st) and, using his own words, drew  "a conventional picture after a long time" (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/comment/20100202/1265105893#comment). He is also wondering if Teyandee's DVD would be eventually released. We, KNT/SPC fans, are expecting the same thing.

Probably because of Gabya's statement. But it's interesting how she's UBER SRS while cooking. What could she possibly be cooking that would require such...dedicated attention. (Or possibly...who is she cooking for?) Or maybe, in some hilarious fashion, every-time she cooks she looks like that!

He's probably drawing them because it's something he enjoys, and he knows that we fans enjoy it as well. But that's a far cry from trying to animate a whole series, which can't be done by one person alone. And frankly, as much as I love KNT and SPC, I wouldn't want to see a new series. I don't think it can be done. For starters, they probably wouldn't be able to get all the VAs back together and I hate when characters get voice changes. The only "new" material I'd want in the form of animation would be a real movie, based on Tatsuya Souma's manga. Other than that, I don't want the show revived, but I WOULD like some DVDs to get released already! We loyal fans have wanted this for years, and still no luck.

Probably she is frying a yakisoba. Tenko said he has bought some raw yakisoba noodle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yakisoba).

About Hobby Shop Section 9, he is referring to the virtual toy shop where he draws a comic strip (http://www.bidders.co.jp/user/8698010/a61) starred by Kokono (http://www.edoropolis.org/forums/index.php?topic=3157.0).

Quite interesting. Such a simple silhouette, yet unmistakeably Lucille; the defining details are all subtly there.

Hmmm... Something tells me that she would never wear a maids (or waiter?) uniform. It would be degrading for her status as princess ...But then again, there WAS an episode where she wanted to be with the common people... Still a cute picture nonetheless.

A piranha biting Otama/Francine's tail (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/comment/20101209/1291900689#comment). Ouch!

Dude...they have a whole episode based around the battery packs, and a two-parter on how they have to cut them off from sunlight to derive them of power.

But those are the battle armors, not the SPC themselves...


Title: Re: KNT Art at Character Designer Tenko's Blog
Post by: Blackcat on December 10, 2010, 07:15:30 pm
Then why do they pass out from lack of energy?

Cause the armors weight a ton without power and because they where tired from fighting...

Tenko has heard some suspicious noises in his front door. Frightened, he looked through the window and find nothing but a crow playing with something grabbed by its feet. Owing to that, Tenko has drawn a ninja crow (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/comment/20101223/1293102677#comment) in his latest blog entry.

March 3rd is Hinamatsuri (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hina_matsuri) celebration day in Japan, so Tenko has drawn Yattarou/Speedy and Omitsu/Lucille (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/comment/20110303/1299151013#comment) dolls.

Although  ;) :lucille: for now, I'm afraid things will more likely go  :O >:[.

It's little off-topic, but I think this is relevant for all Tenko's fans.
In his last blog entry (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/comment/20110311/1299833810#comment) Tenko comments about the recent devastating earthquake in the Japan. Fortunately no harm has been done to Tenko himself, only an external hard drive has fallen onto his head.

Yes, it's Vi. At first I didn't understand what was Tenko talking about, but in his later post (the one with all the Shogun's family) it was explained he was just wondering why Usahime could have a panda as her father.

I'm not sure, but I remember that we have discussed something about this.

It's like a Swiss Army Umbrella. It hypnotizes enemies, fries up Ninja Crows, conceals a sword, is useful for whacking people, provides ample shade, makes you look cool while posing, and yes, even protects you from the rain! It's the most versatile umbrella weapon since The Penguin's collection.

One other one from earlier this month. (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/view/20110511) When Tenko was out walking, he saw two crows sitting on top of an electrical switchboard box. It inspired him to draw this.


Title: Re: KNT Art at Character Designer Tenko's Blog
Post by: Tigriss on May 28, 2011, 09:16:16 am
Cute. You just reminded me of a few times I saw some crows earlier this month. Once was when I saw a crow sitting on top of the traffic lights and joked about crows now being "traffic cops". I can't remember where I saw the other one, but it might have been on a speed limit sign or other traffic sign. Seems like the crows around here are out to bust all the bad drivers we have! ;)


Title: Re: KNT Art at Character Designer Tenko's Blog
Post by: Tigriss on May 29, 2011, 06:38:44 am
Yes, but can they do those other things as well? No? That's what I thought.

Oh, and I forgot to add that it makes a good shield and is surprisingly strong. And didn't Guido once use it to shoot rings out to bind Ninja Crows with too? You can't get that from an ordinary umbrella, so I still stand by my statement. Now if only he tried using it as a dragchute sometime, that might save him from crashing into buildings so often when he gets launched by Francine.

Tenko says when he was at the supermarket he saw a sign warning that the store can't be held responsible for damage done by crows. So he drew this funny picture of some Ninja Crows threatening a shopper. (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/view/20120317)

Usahime and her maidservant.

He made Usahime's maidservant a kangaroo due to them having a maternal image with the pouch and all. He made Okinu a tanuki due to her name sharing two syllables with the word "tanuki".

Possibly a character from an unrealized KNT spinoff? (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/view/20120808)
One of the stranger bits of trivia that has come out with the recent DVD release and event is that there was apparently an idea for a spinoff/spiritual sequel to KNT. It would have been called "Kyattou Keisatsu Beranmee" ("Cat Poilce Beranmee"). The bad guys would have been police dogs, and the good guys would have been Okappiki (Edo-era police) cats. It seems that they didn't get very far before the idea was scrapped, though.

Yeah, he was wondering why the dub decided to call them samurai instead of ninjas. I offered some of my thoughts on the matter in a comment (that "ninja cats" would have been too similar to "ninja turtles", and that without the whole SD mecha context, since that fad was limited to Japan at the time, the helmets and armor would give more of a "samurai" vibe than a "ninja" one to western audiences.)

:violet: draws Godzilla's portrait. (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/view/20140406) Tenko mentions that it was because he was a big fan of Godzilla that he drew one of the fake monsters as a Godzilla wannabe in the episode where Nekkii/Spritz gets captured. He also mentions he particularly liked the scene in said episode with Usahime/Violet's drawings, where the drawings are never actually shown and we're left with only the crowd's reactions and our imaginations to fill in the blanks.

Nyankee :francine:? (http://geocities.yahoo.co.jp/gl/suzukitenko/view/20140416) It looks like the Geocities blog service Tenko has been using will shut down in June. However it appears that they have options to transfer to Yahoo's blog service, and even to transfer all past content over the new blog. So basically, it's looking like Tenko's blog will probably continue, albeit at a different address. But just to be on the safe side, you might want to download and backup any art from his blog you would like to keep.

Pizza Hut has launched a new "Pizza Cat" ad campaign in Japan. Tenko notes that the parodying has come full circle, as "Pizza Cat" was originally a pun on Pizza Hut, and now over 20 years later Pizza Hut themselves are using that same pun. (http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/robototenko/39047028.html)

Nyagoking arm (and :catton:). (http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/robototenko/39785078.html) Tenko saw pictures of the painted Dyanamite Action Nyagoking prototype that was on display at Wonder Festival this weekend. (https://twitter.com/figsoku/status/625183218837250048) He wrote a bit about how its blocky design makes articulation a bit hard when it comes to making figures of it. He says that Nyagoking's rough initial design came from the toy sponsors involved in the show's development, but that he did quite a bit of refining. The beckoning cat in the forehead, the cheek flaps on the helmet, and the overall blockiness were the result of his work.

He was referring to the ES Gokins in particular, who finally had prices announced.

I made a summary post (http://digitalshokunin.tumblr.com/post/139012840603/teyandee-at-wf2016) on my blog, and if you look at my likes on Twitter (https://twitter.com/felineki/likes), you can find more images.

:badbird: looking cool. (http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/robototenko/40669479.html)

Tenko mentions that a few years back he met with the company making the ES Goukin figures and provided them with model sheets. The company was very pleased with this, as they had very few references to work from, even Tatsunoko themselves having few materials left from the show's production. He also mentions that he tried to convince them to make a Karamaru with Komusoutector, but in the end they wouldn't agree. Disappointing, since that's something I and a few other fans have anted to see. Tenko also mentions providing the creators of the fanbook with model sheets in a similar fashion.

I really want that Speedy action figure.

Francine is so entertaining. You picked a good favorite character, IMO.

Yeah, I think it's cool that there is still activity on this website. I like coming here, and I especially like having a reason to COME here.

I think this is a nice thing to chronicle. I mean, chronicling all these cute images of one of my favorite shows? Yus.

I haven't seen a Bad Bird one in ages. Lol, they're so cute.

Yeah. Speedy is great, ya know? He's fun loving, but he's also badass when the time calls for it. That picture could be any of the Pizza Cats.

I think she is just a random cat type animaroid in a western setting...

The pointy bangs look like Madonna's and the gun could indicate that she is Otama but the character here doesn't look too much to neither of them... Can anybody translate the text?
