Good Smile Company is going to release the Sakurai Yukino ( 櫻井雪乃 ) 1/8 PVC figure from the web anime “Candy Boy” ( Candy☆Boy ). Will be released in September 2009. Around 200mm tall, 6,476 yen.
Since the name “Candy Boy” didn’t attract my attention at all, I never watch this anime until today. I always thought that “Candy Boy” is about a guy going after some girls just like those usual gal-game but I was so wrong! This anime is actually about the romantic (?) story of these yuri twins, Yukino and Kanade. I just watched episode 1 on youtube today and found it pretty funny. The story isn’t so long, only has 7 episodes in total (plus 1 ONA and some extra) and each episode only runs about 15 mins. Since it’s pretty short so I might watch them all tonight if I have time. =]
Btw, Yukino is the elder of the twins. I thought she was the younger one until I read it on the Candy Boy homepage. (^^.;
——Description from Manufacturer——
The elder of the inseperable twin sisters.
From the popular anime currently being broadcast on NicoNico Anime Channel, ‘Candy Boy’, comes PVC figures of both of the Sakurai twin sisters.
Candy Boy is well known for its high quality production, and these figures have been sculpted to match up to that quality!
The elder of the twins, Yukino Sakurai, is a gentle yet slightly clumsy girl. She has been posed with her light, long hair flowing behind her creating a very feminine pose. A replaceable arm part is included to display her holding hands with her older sister, Kanade Sakurai, allowing you to display just how close the two sisters really are!
***Sakurai Kanade sold separately***
