Toy’s works is going to release the Kanzaki Kaori ( 神裂火織 ) 1/8 PVC figure from the light novel/manga/anime “A Certain Magical Index” ( とある魔術の禁書目録, To Aru Majutsu no Index). Will be released in September 2009. Around 155mm tall, 6,648 yen.
They haven’t upload any photo in the Toy’s works homepage yet, so I took the photos from amiami for now. I’ll update this post once I get the photos from Toy’s works.
A lot of people say that this figure doesn’t looks like Kaori at all. But to be fair, since “Index” is originally from light novel then officially got the manga and anime treatment afterward. All of their character design is really different. You can’t say which one is the right one. I think this Kanzaki Kaori looks pretty good tho. The paint job and sculpture can’t really compare to the Kotobukiya one, but for the pose I like this Toy’s works one more. =]
Btw, the anime of “Index” spin-off, “A Certain Scientific Railgun” ( とある科学の超電磁砲 ), is coming in October this year. I’m really looking forward to it. =D
