Shinra Bansho Ikki-Kasei no Shou Volume 2 will be coming out August 10th. Pre-orders available at AmiAmi. It looks like the story will already be moving beyond the country of Kiryuu and into the wider world. The characters shown here, clockwise from the left, are Takegami Shingen, Arthur, Zirconia, and Cleo-Pandora. Pictured to the right here (left to right) are Mordred, Palamedes, and Lancelot. Also mentioned are collaborations with Mister Donut (a donut joint), Capybara-san (a Hello Kitty-esque character product line), and a new Puzzle & Dragons collab. For more pictures, check out DM’z-iL’s blog.
The North American version of Puzzle & Dragons for smart phones will be getting the most recent Shinra Bansho collaboration, running from July 6th to July 19th. This one features all the protagonists who appeared in Tenchi Shinmei no Shou Volume 4, a dungeon with Kagato and Hikari from Ikki-Kasei no Shou Volume 1, and new versions of characters with artwork by regular P&D artists Yosuke Adachi and Ikeya. You may recall their renditions of Saiga and Asmodeus in particular got physical cards in Ikki-Kasei no Shou Volume 1 as collaboration cards, specifically C003 to C006.
This time around, as I have entered the 21st century and obtained a smartphone, I’ll be following along with it and posting my progress over on our Twitter page (@ShinraBanshoC).
In other (late) news, the full color Arcana Excellent Model figure was revealed (more images here). Also, the results of the poll to determine who the next character to get a figure should be came out: Alma managed to make it back to #1.
