Kotobukiya has officially unveiled the newest product from the hit mobile game Azur Lane, it is the winless Africa commander herself, Akagi! The 1/7th scale statue is currently slated for December 2018 release.
The Sakura Empire aircraft carrier Akagi is based on the Akagi aircraft carrier in the old Imperial Japanese Navy. In the game, Akagi is a Yandere resembling a nine-tailed fox, sporting a short red skirt and black kimono. She appears devoted at first, full of love for the commander, but behind all that affection is an intense desire for control. Acquiring Akagi is no easy feat, even a daily act of random kindness may not be enough…
Kotobukiya’s Akagi is inspired by her basic art design as she leaps into the air. Her kimono is adorned with golden patterns, her fluttering hair and tails are made from a translucent material for a more delicate gradient and luster. The burning deck and ocean design display base are made with translucent materials as well.
