TOYS Yosuga no Sora: Kasugano Sora Kotobukiya Ver. - Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» In the Yosuga no Sora storyline, Sora Kasugano is one half of a pair of twins who was orphaned at a young. Sora's brother Haruka hearkens back to the past in an effort to remember and hold onto what once was. On the other hand, Sora lives in the present and uses her sibling as a sort of crutch. Two sides of the same coin, the Kasuganos rely on each other to withstand the rigors of each day.

   Kotobukiya's upcoming rendition of Sora shows the melancholy waif in a somewhat alluring pose. She's not quite swimsuit model but perhaps Victoria's Secret would give her a go. A black one-piece swimsuit covers Sora but she appears to be in the process of unraveling it. The figure is sculpted by Toshi Hazime to 1/6 scale and measures 13cm or 5.11" tall. Preorders are welcome to ship in late Sept 2011 at JPY6800 or US$90.90.
