Puella Magi Madoka Magica Soul Gem Strap S

Are you hungry for more Madoka Magica trinkets and merchandise but, do not have anything else to get? Well, I have good news for you as Bandai has announced a new series of Gashapon Soul Gem charms! Slated for release in later March 2017, these Soul Gem strap charms are Bandai's latest iteration of their Soul Gem charms hence, the "S" designation. Together with the addition of two new designs, these new Soul Gems also boast extra sparkly radiance thanks to new reflective holographic material within each gem. The 7 individual designs are as follows.
Madoka's Soul Gem
Homura's Soul Gem
Sayaka's Soul Gem
Kyouko's Soul Gem
Mami's Soul Gem
Nagisa's Soul Gem
Devil Homura's Soul Gem
Individually, each and every one of these Soul Gems look great. Although, to be honest, I would be wary of the final product as everything except Nagisa's and Devil Homura's Soul Gem looks unnaturally bright. Each one will be sold at 300 Yen and because it is a Gashapon toy, luck will be the biggest determinant upon which Soul Gem you receive. Unless of course you are a seasoned Gashapon collector who knows their ways around the contraption.

A domestic release would definitely come first with urban areas in Japan likely to receive it first. As such, if you are planning to pay a visit to Japan, do not get your hopes up on it being there in March unless you are in the heart of the city.

I certainly am excited to learn about new merchandise constantly being added from the series whether it be big or small. What about you? Are you excited for this new release or are you looking for something more substantial instead? Let me know what you think in the comments section below. Until the next time, thank you so much for reading and have yourself a wonderful day ahead!
