Figure Preview: Azumanga Daioh x2

Azumanga Daioh has been one of my absolutely favorite shows ever since it made its way to America. The sense of humor is unparalleled, the characters are lovable to a fault, and everything about the series just oozes charm. Though there are many characters to pick and choose from when it comes to crafting a PVC figure, Kotobukiya has announced a lovely duo that would make creepy Mr. Kimura's jaw drop.

First up is Osaka:
You can almost see her daydreaming and spacing out. Great pose in my opinion and truly fitting of the character! Osaka is 4 inches tall (1/7th scale) with an MSRP of $49.99

Next is Sakaki:

Being the athletic and, um, most mature of the girls Sakaki's figure certainly fits the bill for many otaku collectors! The only thing missing is a cut nekko walking by causing Sakaki to blush. Sakaki is 4 3/4 inches tall and 7 3/4 inches long (1/7th scale) with am MSRP of $59.99.

The details on both of these figures looks very good from the high resolution pictures, but of course it's a picture and we do not have the figures in hand to review as of yet. If you're an Azumanga Daioh fan, such as I, then you'll definitely want to look into these figures when they are released in March.
