Ichijinsha ( 一迅社 ) is going to release the Kirisame Marisa ( 霧雨魔理沙 ) Rev.TOKIAME 1/8 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 ) and manga “Silent Sinner in Blue” ( 東方儚月抄 ). Will be released in December 2009. Around 230mm tall (base included), 7,143 yen. Figure is manufactured by Kotobukiya.
It was rumored that this Marisa figure is those stupid magazine exclusive, but she is not! You can actually buy them on those online store like Amiami and Hobby Stock. I don’t see other online store listed her yet. It would be great if 1999, HLJ, or Play-Asia have her available too (cross fingers) =D
FYI, Ichijinsha is the company that publish the official Touhou manga “Silent Sinner in Blue”, “Rabbit of Moon, Rabbit of Earth”, and the light novel “Cage in Lunatic Runagate”.
|——Description from Touhou Wikia——
Marisa Kirisame (霧雨 魔理沙)
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.
