Studio Saru-Bunshitsu-Kasetsusho took Hiromu Arakawa's cow persona from her autobiographical manga Hyakushō Kizoku, and turned her into a figure for sale at Sunday's Wonder Festival 2013 Winter event. In the manga, Arakawa (Fullmetal Alchemist, Silver Spoon) recounts her life on a Hokkaido farm. Her father from the series was also transformed into a figure.
Each 3,000-yen (about US$32) resin kit is molded in four colors, so the builder only has to draw in the eyes and other lines with a mechanical pencil.
Another group, Hariko to Rocket-ya, also sold two kits of the bovine alter-egos for 1,000 yen (about US$11).
JManga licensed Arakawa's Hyakushō Kizoku in 2012, and that same year, the second volume was released in Japan. Arakawa currently serializes Silver Spoon, a manga about a boy's life in an agricultural school, Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine. The manga is being adapted into a television anime to air on Fuji TV's Noitamina block.
