That figure looks very nice.

I don't know anything about Emi though. Is that her or her transformed self? Does the character actually look like that in the anime?

The figure depicts Emi, who is the alter-ego of the young heroine, Mai. The picture to the upper right of the article shows Mai (brown hair) in front of Emi (aqua hair).

It's worth noting that the figure is a relatively faithful reproduction of an illustration by Kikuchi Michitaka (aka Asamiya Kia) who worked on the series. See here

Kinda hoping they announce a funding plan for the show soon too. Magical Emi's one I've been hoping to get.

The figure's really nice, but it's not for me.

Are they trying to gauge interest in the series with this figure preorder? Are they just looking for big spenders? The number of people who would shell out for such an expensive figure from an old series can't be high.

The figure's weird because it's about lusting over what's essentially an elementary schoolgirl in an 18-yr-old body. Laughing

Exactly,I';m a huge fan of this series,so I'll clear thuis up for yopu guys Anime smile

The Man character's Actual form is an 11 year old orange haired Elementry school school named Mai Kazuki,what your seeing right now in that picture figure is her disguised Transformation form,thibnk of it as Usagi's Disguised Transformation Pen. it's the same with Mahou no Tenshi Creamy Mami,infact alot of Magical girl animes in the 80's and early 90's were like that before Sailor Moon came out when a Magical girl protagonist is given a magical item to disguise herself anyway she wants too, another primne example of this is the Minky Momo franchise. Very Happy



but yes,this is a really good series and defentially worth checking out
