Contrary what its name might suggest, the Manga Erotics F anthology is home to acclaimed artistic, often sensitively written manga like Takako Shimura's Aoi Hana and Natsume Ono's Ristorante Paradiso. Proving there is absolutely no manga that cannot be merchandised, next month Japan's Animate stores will be carrying a series of trading figures based on the alt manga anthology's series.
The 3.8pre-painted PVC figures will be sold in blink boxes for ¥525 (around US$7).
