Persona 3 Fes Mitsuru Kirijou 1/8 Scale Figure - Preorder

As far as gingers go, Mitsuru Kirijou of Persona 3 fame is one of the more exotic creatures this side of Nihon. There are exactly zero ethnic Japanese folk who possess the recessive gene that engenders red hair but there she is. Maybe she's Ainu. Throw in a pair of blood red pupils and Mitsuru is almost otherworldly except she's just your average girl with a penchant for slaying demons...

Kotobukiya's Mitsuru Kirijou figure from last year was one of our best selling toys next to the Kinu Nishimura Mai Shiranui figure and CGC Poison. It's the kind of figure that stokes the fan base and forces buyers to flick open their wallets. Similar to Koyori and KOS-MOS, you can never have enough Mitsuru so Alter announces a new 1/8 scale PVC figure which features the redheaded heroine in fixed pose grandeur. The new Mitsuru measures 21cm tall or 8.26" tall and ships with extra parts so her pose can be changed somewhat.

Preorders for the Japanese territory Mitsuru Kirijou figure are welcome to ship in mid-late June 2008 at JPY7000 or US$68.90 from NCS. A domestic version of the toy distributed by Diamond Comics may also be available in September 2008 at US$58.90 from NCS but we're currently only accepting preorders for the Japanese version.
