Pokémon Symphonic Evolutions & Pokémon Center Plushies Sighting!
Early last month on December 4th, the Dr. Phillips Center was taken through a journey to Victory Road. The Pokémon Symphonic Evolutions tour made a stop at downtown Orlando to bring orchestral arrangements of music that Pokémon fans all know and love! 🎶 We were fortunate enough to be able to go to the show and enjoy a night filled with familiar melodies played in a style that I never thought I would hear.

Gift’s Early Summer Campaign to start soon!
Gift’s online shop’s sale event is about to begin real soon, so it’s time to prepare your wallets! A quick update though: Gift tweeted a few days ago that they have added a new plush to the list of items that are going to be on sale…the Mikazuki Munechika plush!
Yes, our dear jiji plush will be available for order as part of the Early Summer Campaign! I’m pretty psyched for this, as are many other fans, especially since it was unknown whether this plush was going to be an exclusive to some other event or released normally on shops like AmiAmi. It would be nice if they would release it normally, but knowing how Gift works, it would mostly likely be a webshop exclusive.
Let’s take a closer look at the plush!

Gift’s Early Summer Campaign!
Gift tweeted early yesterday that they will be holding an online sale event called the Early Summer Campain. The event will be open online from May 15th to May 25th, where people will be able to purchase select exclusive goods from Gift. If you spend over 10,000 yen, shipping will be free, which is pretty nice. This event introduces some new items that haven’t been available before along with some re-releases, so if you’re a fan of Gift’s plushies, it’s worth it to order some of their webshop-exclusive plushies!
There are plenty of items to choose from, but these are the ones I think are worth noting!
Nitro+CHiRAL Plush Series (#21): Noiz from DRAMAtical Murder!
Hello, fellow collectors! Yesterday, I got this adorable little gem of a plush in the mail! It’s the Gift Noiz plush, from DRAMAtical Murder, which is probably the most popular BL (Boy’s Love) game ever released. The game takes place in the fictional island of Midorijima, which is under financial hold by Toue Corporation. Toue Corporation has been turning the island to the seemingly luxurious invite-only resort called Platinum Jail, while the island’s original residents were left behind in the slums, where the young entertain themselves by joining gangs and playing the popular cyber game named Rhyme. DRAMAtical Murder gains its popularity from its unique characters and setting, not to mention the endings that players are able to attain. Anyway, without further ado, let’s talk about this cute Noiz plush!

Unusual Poké Dolls Sighting!
Poké Dolls are an incredibly cute little plush toy line that were named after an in-game item. The Pokémon Company has released various of them in Japan, and they’ve been slowly making their way to the US via certain shops like the Nintendo World shop in New York. The best way to get a good number of them are online…or so I thought! On one of our late night trips to WalMart, we browsed the trading card section near the registers to find…Poké Dolls plushies?!
