If you’re out and about in Akihabara and want to see something really cute, you might want to take a look at the fourth floor of Kotobukiya. Walking up there you’ll see Haruka Amami from hugely popular, The Idolm@ster, who will be plastered everywhere you look. The Idolm@ster have launched their own line of figures called “Cu-poche” with Haruka being the first one to be produced.
The figures launch in Japan tomorrow, April 5th, and in the US later this year in May. In fact the US store of Kotobukiya is now accepting pre-orders for it as well. The “Cu-poche” figures come with a chibi style, very familiar to the Nendoroids from Good Smile Company and Chibi-Arts from Bandai.
Apart from the Haruka Amami figure, they plan on releasing more during the year including Saber (Fate/stay night), Madoka Kaname (Puella Magi Madoka Magica), Dark Magician Girl (Yu-Gi-Oh!) and Kirino Kosaka (Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai).
