Welcome back to the Monday edition of Hige’s Akiba! While trying to find something to keep myself entertained during this long holiday, I met some friends and watch them play some card games like Weiss Schwartz and Magic The Gathering! Was pretty fun but anyways, let’s see what’s around Akihabara today. As many of you know, Kantai Collection has become immensely popular and it has all sorts of goods out lately. One long running plastic model series also have been ganing popularity as well. Tamiya’s Japanese ship model lines!


As you can see, the outer packaging of the ship models are now using the Kancolle shipgirls instead! I think it’s pretty good that they’re using the game models to get people to appreciate the original ships more actually…and also makes for a pretty good marketing strategy. I kinda want to buy one too!
