AAA Anime To Distribute Exclusive Ikki Tousen 'Kanu' PVC Figures


El Monte, CA – August 14, 2006 -- AAA Anime Inc., the premier distributor of anime and manga related products in North America, has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Griffon Enterprises in Japan to release a premium Ikki Tousen PVC figure of ‘Kanu’ for North America.

The figure is originally produced by renowned anime figure house, Griffon Enterprises. Based on the best selling anime (manufactured by Geneon Animation) and manga (published by TOKYOPOP) -- An eternal struggle has been waged between ancient warriors for hundreds of years. Now, the battle renews as the warriors are reincarnated as students of the seven top schools. The fighter Kanu will be posed kneeling with her pole and produced to 1/7 scale.

Retailers and consumers should be warned that these high quality premium PVC figures have been the target of counterfeiters in the past with release of imitation figures prior to release of the actual product. Buyers beware: these imitations are made through a cheap recast procedure and will appear to be a quality product upon first inspection. Further review will reveal imperfections in the PVC and difference in the painting on the figure. The counterfeit will lack gradation and shadowing on the clothes and has completely omitted the actual paint on the body itself. Also note that the counterfeit has been outfitted with a different colored skirt than that of the original character and that the difference of color between the original and counterfeit is not a “variant” or “premium” item.
