Do You Have Akiyama Mio On The Brain?

Okay, its been a few months now. My over inflated negative opinion on K-ON! has cooled a bit, such that now I can just appreciate the sheer merchandise cash cow the series has become. Even now, Kyo-ani are still milking away furiously with calloused fingers producing memorabilia like K-ON! backpacks. However while a lot of these products are just sheer wastes of  hard earned moula, this new figure of Akiyama Mio is drop-dead gorgeous. More after the jump.

If you are thinking: "Wow, another figure of Mio...who cares?" then prepare yourself, because you will automatically receive a mental facepalm from yours truly in 3...2...1...

This 1/8th scale figure is the final prototype, with Mio in her wonderful ED costume. Facial expression and pose are very attractive...just look at her face! The figure as a whole looks animated, and that is what sets apart excellent figures from the pack. The wonderfully sculpted dress flowing around Mio as she does a half spin is a perfect example of this.  Forget all previous Mio renditions, this is the new yardstick, the money maker. I want her.

Unfortunately no information on release dates or costs yet, I shall keep you posted.

  • i’m not really into the whole figurine thing when it comes to anime, but i got to hand it to them, that’s a good one, if it’s small enough to fit ontop of a desktop computer then they have themselves a deal.

    • Yeah, depending on the quality of the paintjob, this is going to be a must get for me. On another note, you dont have to be totally into figures to be able to buy them. Getting one from the series you really loved was my way.
