BAKEMONOGATARI ~ MAYOI HACHIKUJI ANI*STATUE
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! From the smash hit anime series Bakemonogatari comes the second in a series of Ani*Statues, the ghost MAYOI HACHIKUJI! Forever trying to complete her journey to her mother’s house, the young girl met up with Koyomi and eventually reached her destination. Always on the move, Mayoi trudges along determinedly, clutching the straps to her plush animal-inspired overstuffed backpack. She wears a school girl outfit with a white short-sleeved shirt, bowtie, high socks, and a pink suspendered skirt with matching shoes. Mayoi has lots of unique details including a bandage on her knee, embroidered cherries on her skirt, a bracelet, headband, and leafy hair decorations! While her whole body is in motion, the ghost girl stares straight ahead toward her destination, a slight smile on her lips. Sculpted by Koei Matsumoto, Mayoi stands 7 ½ inches tall (1/8th scale) and is constructed of high-quality pvc plastic.
Available in JANUARY
MIZUIRO ~ YUKI KATASE -NEKOMIMI BLOOMER- ANI*STATUE
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! The main heroine of the hit game Mizuiro, YUKI KATASE is well known to fans around the world as the mascot for the Nekoneko brand. She’s also the quintessential Imouto or “sister” character, and the perfect addition to the “4 Leaves” series of iconic archetypes. Based on the main illustration from the “Neko Neko Fan Disc,” Yuki is posed bent over, supporting herself on a giant golden spoon. She is dressed in a colorful school uniform embellished by cat ears, a tail, and cat’s paw shoes. Yuki’s “ears” are removable, as is her short skirt to reveal her pretty blue bloomers. As a special bonus, she comes with a 40mm scale Mecha Shindo mini figure! Yuki stands almost 6 ½ inches tall (in 1/7th scale) .

TORADORA! ~ TAIGA AISAKA ANI*STATUE
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Coming straight out of the TV series finale of Toradora! is the beautiful but antisocial TAIGA AISAKA. Dressed in a black school girl uniform complete with thigh high black stockings and blue shoes, the “Palmtop Tiger” stands nervously with her hands behind her back and one foot pointed innocently inward. Fans will adore her cute “tsundele” face, and “moe” lovers will especially appreciate the “absolute territory” between her skirt and coat! Sculpted by former garage kit dealer and star of Wonder Festival 2010 Winter “Okamoto Dou Noa Sakura,” Taiga stands fully 10 inches tall (in 1/6th scale)!
