Gokokuden ( 護国殿 ) is going to release the Kirisame Marisa ( 霧雨魔理沙 ) non-scale PVC figure from the doujin danmaku shooting game series “Touhou Project” ( 東方プロジェクト ) by the circle Team Shanghai Alice ( 上海アリス幻樂団 ). Will be released in January 2010. Arund 250mm tall (included base), 7,619 yen.

No, you’re not the only one. It’s my first time to hear the name Gokokuden too. They were founded on September 07 2008. They are a doujin circle that focus on Touhou stuff. Although they’re pretty new, the sculptor of this Marisa is not. The sculptor is Yoshi from Trepang ( とれぱんぐ ).

Since it is Touhou, this Marisa figure will only available in online store and so far I only see her availiable at Amiami. I think Toranoana will have her later and hope that other online store like Amazon.jp will have her too, but don’t take my words for that.

——Description from Wikipedia——

  • Species: Human
  • Ability: High-powered magic
  • Residence: Forest of Magic
  • Also known as: Ordinary Magician

Marisa is the secondary main character of Touhou games 3-12, although she makes her first appearance in the second game (Story of Eastern Wonderland) as an enemy. Marisa is a human magician who lives in a cluttered house in the Forest of Magic. She is friends with Reimu and visits her often, but otherwise is solitary and spends most of her time researching magic. She is also an avid collector stuffing her house with various items, and would go “borrowing” things from others without returning them. She is selfish, sometimes violent, and has a disagreeable manner. Underneath, though, she is honest and a hard worker. This makes it strange that she is friends with Reimu, whose powers are purely from talent while she had to work very hard to get her own to the same level. Her ability is high-level destructive magic. In the games, her attacks are characterized by stars and lasers. Consistent to her “borrowing”, many of her spells are lifted from other characters, such as her signature “Master Spark” which was originally Yuka’s, or her “Nondirectional Laser” attack, which was originally Patchouli’s attack.
