This Naoe Kanetsugu is so cute! And she is more affortable then the Penguin Parade one (8.8k vs 9.5k). It sux that this one is not castoffable but still I really want to get her. But with all those Madoka figures (BQ Mami & Kyoko, figma Mami, Madoka PVC, Madoka Nendorid Petit set), January is really isn’t funny for me. Let’s hope that I still have enough money to get this Kanetsugu in January. (@@.

——Description from Manufacturer——

From the 40th anniversary Monthly HobbyJAPAN project “Hyakka Ryoran” is “Naoe Kanetsugu” joining its lineup!

She’s the user of “Naoe style battle technique” using a beetle bigger than its self! Powerful but a little bit clumsy Naoe is sculpted with an attractive smile.

Her softly waving twin tails and a big sized beetle held in her hand brings out motion!

It can also be displayed with beetle’s chain part removed.
