First seen at the Tokyo International Anime Fair 2009 , here is some further information of this Figma Mitsurugi Meiya. Mitsurugi Meiya is from the Muv-Luv Alternative PC game by âge.
Meiya definitely is can be classified as an AFF (armed female figure) with that huge katana sword. Color scheme for this Figma is really nice with contrasting purple against black done very nicely on her UN Army Armor . She doesn't have as many accessories (weapons) as the recently featured Signum but i think that is reflected in the slightly lower price. Only minor gripe is that at certain angles, the neck seems a tad too long...but we'll have to wait to see the actual figure to accurately judge that.
A must get for me as I can never resist cool AFFs with beautiful color schemes.
