The most featured character figure on the fourth floor of Kotobukiya's Akihabara store now is Haruka Amami from the super popular The Idolm@ster series, which is the first product from their newly launched figure line "Cu-poche." The Haruka figure will be released in Japan on April 5th and in the US in May this year. Kotobukiya's US store is now accepting pre-orders for it.
"Cu-poche" features small posable figures with a chibi style, a kind similar to Bandai's Chibi-Arts and Good Smile Company's Nendoroid. Following Haruka Amami, Madoka Kaname (Puella Magi Madoka Magica), Saber (Fate/stay night), Kirino Kosaka (Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai), and Dark Magician Girl (Yu-Gi-Oh!) are scheduled to be released in this year.
