Kotobukiya 4-Leaves LG (Legend Girls) is going to release the Kaho ( 花穂 ) School Uniform Ver. ( 制服版 ) 1/7 PVC figure from the light novel/anime series “Sister Princess”. Will be released in December 2009. Around 180mm, 5,500 yen.
Beside the doujin game “Sispri Gauntlet” by D5., I know nothing about Sister Princess. I always thought that Sister Princess is originally from eroge but I was wrong. It’s too long to explain so I’ll just copy and paste it from Wiki. =P
It seems that Kotobukiya is starting a new series called “4-Leaves Legend Girls”. According to Kotobukiya, this LG series means “eternal heroines” ( 永遠のヒロイン ) and “traditional model” ( 正統派の造形 ). I guess we will see a lot more girls from some old anime/game from this series later. I’m hope to see some characters from Air and Kanon in this LG series. (@@.
——Description from Wikipedia——
The history of Sister Princess can be traced back to March 1999, when it first appeared in the monthly Dengeki G’s Magazine. Originally, there were only nine sisters, not twelve. Readers were able to vote for their favorite sister and following the tremendous response from the fans, the magazine decided to serialize Sister Princess.
In March 2000, a decision was made to renew the series, this time by featuring the short letters that the girls wrote to their beloved brother. Three more sisters were added to the mix: Haruka, who came from Germany; Yotsuba, who came from England; and Aria, who came from France.
A year later, on March 8, 2001, the game version of Sister Princess — about the older brother spending a month with all twelve sisters, and featuring original artwork by Naoto Tenhiro—was released on the Sony PlayStation. Priced at 6800yen (9800yen for the limited edition), the game was the third best-selling title in Japan in its first week of release.
In July of the same year, a new series of stories began in Dengeki G’s, right up till April 2002. While the magazine was preparing for yet another renewal of the Sister Princess stories for its May 2002 issue, a premium edition of the game (the original plus two other Christmas and Valentine side stories) was released for the Sega Dreamcast on Mar 28, 2002.
Sequels include Sister Princess 2 and Sister Princess RePure.
