Furude Rika & Hanyuu Wave Figures

Wave has announced two new figures from anime/manga/game horror series Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. First one is Furude Rika (古手 梨花), cute, little girl and miko of Hinamizawa shrine. The second one is Hanyuu (羽入), her mysterious friend. They are non-scale PVC figures, approximated heights are 14cm for both of them. Release date is September, but you can already reserve them at Hobby Search or HLJ. Retail prices are 6,500 yen each, but you can get them at HLJ for 6,125 now as an early bird, or you can always buy them from Hobby Search at the same price as HLJ’s early bird.

First, Furude Rika.

They are probably the best Rika and Hanyuu figures I’ve seen so far. And for me, a big Higurashi fan, this is very tempting because I’ve always wanted a Rika figure, but there were no nice ones and I have always hoped for a company like GSC or Alter to make one. But this one looks good. It’s quite plain, but it still looks good. I will think it over whether to buy it or wait and hope for another one. It’s also a little expensive for a 14cm figure without any extravagancies or fancy clothes. There are so many nice figures due to July-September so I have to think carefully what to buy and what not. That’s why I haven’t decided yet what about Rika, and perhaps even Hanyuu. I’ll see.
