Make it a shrine festival date with Aniplex+'s Mami figure photo
Make it a shrine festival date with Aniplex+'s Mami figure
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Aniplex+ is back again with another Madoka Magica girl clad in their best kimono. Joining Madoka and Homura is figure number three, Mami (Maiko edition) in a very cute pink kimono. The detail is quite exceptional with lots of bright and vivid colors, every piece covered in flower petals. Her hair has some very intricately sculpted and painted decorations and even her bright blue fan looks great! Just like with the other two this is certainly a figure made to impress. As if that wasn't enough she also comes with a little Charlotte figure laughing at her feet. 

The figure itself is 1/8 scale and stands at 190 mm. She's expected to be released in April at US$119.98. As an Aniplex+ exclusive she's only available directly through Right Stuf or Akiba Anime. Pre-order cutoff to guarantee a figure is October 31, but both shops have ordered additional figures in the past to continue taking orders after the date, though you're taking a big chance!

Oh, and check the gallery for a preview of the Sayaka and Kyouko figures!

FREEing's Houki Shinonono is pretty foxy

I've not kept up with Infinite Stratos but its cast sure has gotten a lot of figures. I rather like FREEing's 1/4-scale Houki, mostly because of the way her expression works with those fox ears. Very cute indeed. If you want ...

Now that we've had a while to unpack the information assault from the Wonder Festival/SDCC tandem (both happened on the same weekend!), the Tomopop crew thought it would be a good idea to highlight some of our personal favorite things from both events.

It would take too long to cover everything I want, so it looks like a top 10 list is in order. Read on to see what tickled my fancy!
