Kotobukiya is going to release the Elmina ( エルミナ ) 1/8 PVC figure form the “Shining” game series “Shining Wind” published by SEGA. Will be released in May 2009. Around 185mm tall, 6,510 yen.
——Description from Wikipedia——
Shining Wind (シャイニング・ウィンド) is an action role-playing game developed by Nextech and Amusement Vision, and published by Sega for the Sony PlayStation 2 video game console, and the eighteenth game in the Shining video game series. It was released in May 17, 2007 on Japan. The game is also the sequel to the Shining Tears game, with an upgraded interface. The main characters from Shining Tears will appear in Shining Wind as well. An anime adaptation of the game, along with its prequel, called Shining Tears X Wind, began airing in early April 2007. Like its predecessor Shining Tears, this game is illustrated by the renowned hentai artist Tony Taka.
I guess Shining Wind is the most popular series in the “Shining series”. After the game released in 2007, so many figure manufacturers released a lot of figures for this series. Even though I never play the game or watch the anime, I like their characters a lot. Maybe it’s because the character designer is the really popular hentai artist TONY. =P
