About a year after Max Factory released their version of Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere archer Tomo Asama, Kotobukiya will be releasing a 1/8th scale statue of the busty character. North American fans will have their chance to pick up the figure, because she's now been confirmed for North American import in June 2014.
The recently started lineup of Ani*Statues continues from Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, a light novel series and anime about a feudal Japan in the far future. Next up after Futayo Honda is the Shinto priestess and expert archer Tomo Asama! Presented in a beautifully painted pink and red outfit, Tomo stands ready to fire an arrow with near-deadly accuracy, illustrating why she has earned the nickname “Sniper Priestess.” Everything about her shows off her focus on her shot from the unique balancing elements in her dress to her powerful pose and the serious expression on her face as she sights her arrow with Konoha (her artificial left eye). In contrast to the huge weapons she wields, Tomo herself seems soft and delicate in her skintight suit. Sculpted by Hirotoshi Nakamura, the Sniper Priestess measures over 14 ½ inches (1/8 scale) to the top of her mighty bow! Display Tomo alongside Futayo Honda in your Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere collection!
Available June 2014.
