It's going to be a good fall for fans of the Muv-Love visual novel series that inspired the Total Eclipse anime. Kobobukiya has announced that an Inia Sestina bishoujo statue and a Shiranui Storm & Strike Vanguard mecha model are slated to be imported to North America, while a Meiya Mitsurugi will be hitting Japan. Meanwhile, Good Smile Company will be releasing Nendoroids of the Scarlet Sisters.
From the anime series 'Total Eclipse' comes a Nendoroid of one of the Soviet Army's 'Scarlet Sisters', Cryska Barchenowa!
Optional parts include an insane expression as well as a special cockpit part allowing you to display her under the effect of Prafka. She also comes with alternate hand parts allowing you to display her holding hands with Nendoroid Yui Takamura just as she was in the key visual illustration of the series. A Dragunov sniper rifle and Laser-type BETA are also included. To recreate even more of scenes from the show, be sure to display her with the other Scarlet Sister, Inia Sestina!

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Kotobukiya proudly presents an all-new Ani*Statue version of the Russian test pilot from the popular Muv-Luv Alternative side story Total Eclipse, Inia Sestina Plug Suit Ver.! An esper and survivor of Alternative III, Inia returns in her full plug suit gear, recuperating after a major battle. Seated on a pile of debris, the pilot rests on one hand while looking curiously off to the side, her long, beautiful hair waving behind her. Inia’s distinctive body-hugging two-tone blue plug suit is intricately sculpted with armored sections, heavy boots, high-tech protrusions, creases, and more. The pilot and esper is 6 ½ inches tall sitting down (1/7 scale) on the georama base as she looks at you with her huge blue eyes. Display her on her own or together with Muv-Luv Plug Suit Ver. Cryska Barchenowa and Yui Takamura with their interlocking bases!
Available October 2013.
Meanwhile, Kotobukiya's Meiya Mitsurugi hits Japan in October
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Up next in the Muv-Luv Alternative model kit lineup is an elite Shiranui variant we’ve seen before in the Fine Scale Model kit that’s now joining its 1/144 brethren, the Shiranui Storm & Strike Vanguard Ver.! This model kit gives the TSF a new look and new equipment while retaining the classic robot’s unique modular armor, aerodynamic shape, and distinctive dual-horned head. The Storm & Strike Vanguard version features an evocative violet and purple color scheme and the incorporation of some parts molded in clear plastic, really giving it a whole new look that’ll stand out from your other Shiranui robots. Even better, it comes with great interchangeable armor and weapons like a huge shield, swords, and guns! Comprised of over 200 pre-colored pieces the Storm & Strike Vanguard version stands nearly 5 ½ inches tall (1/144 scale) and offers you plenty of posing and display options with excellent articulation.
Available October 2013.
