Go Nagai Collection

Mitsuya All Zero cider is actually kind of foul. I really don't like anything that uses artificial sweeteners, and the Japanese 0 calorie drinks are not an exception. I'm not really sure how to describe the flavor here, except that maybe it's like apple cider but more pear and less apple. Anyway, the only reason for getting this stuff was to pick up the Panson Works "Go Nagai Collection" Devilman figure. There are 6 total figures in the set - 2 styles of Devilman, Mazinger Z, Cutey Honey, Getter 1 and Enma-kun - all in the same 1"-tall blocky style. The figures were only available at certain convenience stores, with prices ranging from 125 to 147 yen a bottle.

For some reason, Panson Works doesn't advertise their products on their site, but you can see their past figures on yahoo. In turn, Asahi Soft Drinks has moved on past Go Nagai and is currently promoting the "Paperman" campaign on their main site. Buy a bottle of All Zero and get a serial number you can enter at the site for a chance to win promotional goods.
