AOU 2009 shows off Clannad, Evangelion, Gurren Lagann and more

4:00 PM on 02.20.2009 // Colette Bennett

AOU Anusement Expo took place in Japan starting Friday, February 21st, showing off the latest and greatest in prize toys which US citizens will likely never get their mitts on. Akiba Hobby was there to take plentiful photos, which I advise you go scrutinize in their full gallery, although I've thrown a few of my favorites in our gallery here. 

Seeing Clannad and Lucky Star figures in the bunch was hardly a surprise, but the old school anime fan in me was rather thrilled to see a Devilman figure in the bunch as well. Also of note were a couple of new Yokos and a short-haired Nia (that last one ought to come as a delightful surprise to those of you starving for more Nia figures!), Toro and Kuro from Mainichi Issyo in Halloween pumpkin costumes, chibi Higurashi figures and much, much more.

Which ones would would you kill to get your hands on? For me it's that adorable Nia...
