The Dengeki entertainment brand is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year! One of the projects is the “Dengeki 25th Anniversary Special Figure Project”, which includes the “Love Live! Sunshine!! Birthday Figure Project” that started this August.
The first in the series is Kunikida Hanamaru, who went up for preorder on Aug. 5 on Dengeki’s official webshop Dengekiya. Watanabe You will be following her soon on Aug. 19.
This project aims to celebrate the birthdays of the Aqours members together, featuring them in their outfits from the song “Mirai Ticket” at 1/8 scale.
