Kotobukiya's Naruko and her giant belt open for pre-order

As seen in the latest batch of scans (and in prototypes before), Kotobukiya's Naruko from AnoHana isn't too bad of a 1/8-scale figure, even if that giant belt around her abdomen makes me question her fashion sense. But now, she's open for p...

Kotobukiya's Naruko from AnoHana looks pretty with color

The problem with a lot of characters who go to school in anime is that when there is a figure of said character, they are either going to be in a school uniform or a swimsuit. So it's always nice to see a figure release sporting casual wear...
