Kaiyodo has scheduled three tiny, but adorable sets of Capsule Q Fraulein figures for this winter. Bakemonogatari Vol.2 and Yotsuba to Shiro to Kuro no Doubutsu (Yotsuba and black and white animals) are slated for December, while Rebuild of Evangelion Heroine Anthology Part.1 hits in January. Get a look after the jump.
Kiyohiko Azuma's Yotsuba&! is a charming, whimsical manga, intended to recapture the spirit of childhood, but given that it's about a child raised by a single father, running in a mature seinen anthology, maybe it's not entirely inappropriate that it made a prominent cameo in a recent episode of frequently raunchy American sitcom Louie.
