Popular With The Ladies: Figures for Fangirls in Wonder Festival 2010 Summer
(This article was originally posted in Japanese at 22:49 July 25, 2010)
Wonder Festival is admittedly a male-oriented event in that the majority of visitors is male and majority of the products exhibited, namely the numerous garage kits of bishoujo characters, robots, vehicles and weapons, are aimed at male.
But there do exist female-oriented garage kits. Here are some products we've seen at Wonder Festival 2010 Summer from anime/manga/game titles popular among female audience, including Hetalia: Axis Powers, Nintama Rantaro, Big Windup!(Okiku Furikabutte) and Gin Tama.
