Special exhibition for the classic fantasy anime also opens today at Shibuya Marui in Tokyo
Today on the release day of the 4K remaster edition Blu-ray box of Genmu Senki Leda/Leda: The Fantastic Adventure of Yohko, Toho revealed product photos of a new 1/7 scale figure of its protagonist Yohko Asagiri to be released in late December of this year. It has been 34 years since the 72-minute anime was released in Japan on March 1, 1985, as one of the titles in the earliest days of Japanese OVA (Original Video Animation).
The 264 mm-tall limited production figure is produced to commemorate the release of the remaster Blu-ray. Pre-orders for the 16,200 yen (about 150 US dollars) item are now received on TOHO animation STORE.
Meanwhile, a special exhibition to commemorate the remaster Blu-ray release also open on the seventh floor of Shibuya Marui in Tokyo today. A painted prototype of the Yohko figure is also displayed at the event. Check out photos from the event posted on the anime's official Twitter below.
In addition to the DTS-HDMaster original monaural Japanese audio and an original theatrical trailer, the set also comes with a special 116-page booklet (illustrations, key animation drawings, never-seen-before production materials) and two reprint pamphlets for the OVA and theatrical releases.
