Good Smile Company has itself a U.S. office in Los Angeles, but now, as highlighted by IshokuOsero in Veila's latest C-Blog, they have a new voice to go with it. Within the past few weeks, GSC has hired Frances Delgado of How A Girl Figures and AX Live to basically be the Mikatan for the LA office. For those of you might remember, Frances has been featured in our Tomopop Roundtable Round-up feature before, and she and I were both on an episode of Otaku in Review that focused on collecting.
Frances' alias will be Mamitan (following tradition with Good Smile Japan's Mikatan and Good Smile France's Maritan), and she's already got a Twitter and Tumblr set up. She'll eventually have a Mikatan-style blog and will be writing in both English and Spanish for the North American market. So go say hi to Mamitan (yes, you can tell them Tomopop sent you), and congrats to Frances on the new job!
