Limited Edition Ultimate Nipako Manga Comes with Nippers

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Japanese toolmaker God Hand introduced its mascot character Ultimate Nipako and she's since appeared in a manga series and as a GPS guide voiced by Rumi Ookubo. She's even pitched alcohol.

She's also the star of her own manga series, Kyūkyoku! Nipa-ko-chan (Ultimate! Nipa-ko-chan), by Yūji Kōji and Eiji Mano. In the comedy manga, Nipako is an alien princess named Celine P. Nippanu who settles on Earth. It also stars the new, maroon-haired girl Rajiko.

The series premiered last year and Mag Garden is releasing the first compiled volume on November 28 in both a standard and limited edition. Unsurprisingly, the limited edition bundles a special gift: a pair of nippers.

The character recently appeared in Frame Arm Girls, an anime about sentient model kit girls. As far as collaborations go, Nipako was a shoe-in. God Hand's Ultimate Nippers tool's primary purpose is for model building. You can spot her in episode six. She also showed up in episode nine of Nurse Witch Komugi-chan R last year where she's shown assisting other minor characters.
