quesQ is going to release the Saigyouji Yuyuko ( 西行寺 幽々子 ) 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.

Saigyouji Yuyuko is one of my favrite “Onee-san” characters in Touhou. She always acts so silly and says stupid things, but in fact she is one of the smartest people (ghost?) in Gensokyo. I like her bullets a lot, I love the fan behind her in her starting from her 3rd spell card (see the Youtube clip at round 2:56). I think she got the most beautiful bullets in all the girls in Gensokyo. =]

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——

Saigyouji Yuyuko ( 西行寺 幽々子 )

  • Species: Ghost
  • Ability: Invoke death
  • Residence: Hakugyokurō
  • Theme Song: Bloom nobly, cherry blossoms of Sumizome ~ Border of Life

Final stage boss, also a playable character in Touhou 7.5, 8 and 10.5. Yuyuko is the princess of the netherworld pagoda, Hakugyokurō. She is a ghost, but unlike most of her kind, looks entirely human. Living in the netherworld, she doesn’t socialize much with the rest of Gensokyo. Her only friend from outside is Yukari. Her family name Saigyozi suggests relations with the famed poet Saigyo. Yuyuko, at first appearance, is a ditz; her mental processes seem to be dedicated mainly to teasing her gardener and servant, Youmu, and anticipating her next meal. However, her usual manner conceals a sharp mind and an almost prenatural depth of insight. For instance, she was the only one to perceive what sort of being Fujiwara no Mokou was at first sight. Yuyuko has the power to invoke death in any mortal; however, she uses it rarely and with discretion. Her danmaku are characterized by butterfly-shaped bullets.
