quesQ is going to release the Konpaku Youmu ( 魂魄 妖夢 ) 1/6 PVC bust statue 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 October 2009. Around 90mm tall, 3,200 yen. Will be only available at some online stores and doujin stores.

Konpaku Youmu, one of the youngest youkai in Gensokyo and always get teased by the other girls in Gensokyo. Even though she is the stage 5 boss, she doesn’t seems to be really powerful to me. Maybe it’s because her mastress, the stage 6 boss Yuyuko, is way overpowered compared to Youmu. (^^.;

There are the Touhou statues from the GK circle “quesQ” ( キューズQ ) that we always saw in the events recently. Wow, they looks really really nice to me, and the price is very reasonable. But since it’s quesQ first time to turn their GK into PVC figure and they didn’t mention which manufacturer produce these figures, I’m really worry about the quality. Well, at least the paint job will not be as nice as you see in the prototype photos below. But for Touhou fans and the attractive price tag, they’re must have. They will be only available at some online stores like Amiami and doujin stores like Toranoana ( 虎の穴 ).

——Description from Wiki——

Konpaku Youmu ( 魂魄 妖夢 )

  • Species: Half-human half-ghost
  • Ability: Swordsmanship
  • Residence: Hakugyokurō
  • Theme Song: Hiroari Shoots a Strange Bird ~ Till When?

Stage 5 boss and stage 6 midboss, in addition, she is a playable character in Touhou 7.5-9, and 10.5 as well. Youmu is the gardener of the netherworld pagoda, Hakugyokurō. She comes from a very rare breed, the half-ghosts; in this strange combination, the human half and ghost half exist in physically separate bodies, but are always close by one another. Youmu is very young for a half-ghost, under 60 years; her exact age is unknown. While straightforward, focused and loyal to her mistress, Yuyuko, Youmu is still rather immature, and tends to be a target for teasing by the other girls of Gensokyo (particularly her mistress Yuyuko). Paradoxically, she is afraid of ghosts (the imaginary sort). Her talents are swordsmanship and speed. In the games, she is characterized by creating powerful danmaku with her sword slashes, and slowing time (this is not due to magic as one might expect, but because of time slowing around her body as she goes past at unimaginable speeds).
