Hatsune Miku fans, prepare yourselves! Figure company FREEing is releasing a Senbonzakura version of Miku this July. For those unfamiliar with the digital idol, here’s the description from Kahotan’s Blog:
From the popular Hatsune Miku song by Kurousa-P, ‘Senbonzakura’ comes a figure of Hatsune Miku in her unique outfit from the song! The figure is based on Itto Maru’s original illustration featuring Miku looking over her shoulder with her hand pointing in the shape of a gun, as if firing behind her.
