Kyoto Animation began streaming a new 25-second stop-motion figure promotional video on Friday for its upcoming line of super-deformed figures for the K-ON! anime film. The "K-ON! Singing! Series" of figures refers to the film's ending theme song "Singing!" by voice actress Aki Toyosaki. (Note: the below video has no sound.)
The video introduces the addition of the figure for the character Tsumugi Kotobuki. The company streamed a previous stop-motion video last month. The figure line already features figures for the characters Mio Akiyama, Ritsu Tainaka, and Yui Hirasawa. The Yui figure will ship in August, the Ritsu figure will ship in September, the Mio figure will ship in October, and the Tsumugi figure will ship in November. The poseable figures are 10 centimeters (4 inches) tall. Pre-orders for the Tsumugi figure went on sale on Saturday in Japan.
The Yui figure costs 4,000 yen (about US$49), and the Ritsu, Mio, and Tsumugi figures cost 3,500 yen (about US$43).
