Description

日本語 | English



Tokyo Otaku Mode has teamed up with Straight Edge Inc., AKA the producers of the original light novel and anime series Eromanga Sensei, to bring you a project we like to call... “An Eromanga Sensei Sagiri Izumi Figure That’s Just a Little Bit Ecchi”.

This project all started from the web series “Eromanga Sensei The Anime: Let’s Make The Latest Anime Together!” In an episode based on the concept of allowing readers and viewers to create a figure from the most recent anime, the voice actress of Sagiri Izumi, Akane Fujita, collaborated with viewers to design the figure together. The figure you see on this project page is the result!



About the Series

Brought to you by the creators of the light novel series that sold over 1.2 million copies, “Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai (My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute)”, “Eromanga Sensei” is a romantic comedy about a brother and sister who gradually discover the fun of literary creation in the light novel industry together.

The light novel series was adapted into “Eromanga Sensei” the anime, which began airing in April 2017. Thanks to the series’ attention to detail in expression and the adorable design of Saigiri, the series became an enormous hit.

The Decoration Masters Version


The Decoration Masters Version (the fully-painted sample model) of Sagiri is finally unveiled! Her big, charming eyes have been perfectly recreated!


Take note of her slightly embarrassed expression, with which she seems to cutely whisper, “I didn’t even want to pose like this…” Ahh~ what a sight to behold!


The stand comes with a “mysterious being” decoration from the Oreimo series!
It’s known as the Green Octopus, and may or may not be fear-inspiring…?



The “pink being” has also been recreated! But the real focus is on the peach-colored, cute cushion in the foreground of the photo.


Yes, that’s right, it’s the heart-shaped cushion that Akane Fujita created herself~! (Awesome!!)



Sagiri is posed sitting in only an audacious bathing suit and a white button-down shirt! This pose, which is composed of the ultimate golden ratio between pink swimsuit and cute thighs, can only be described as top-class.



The space between her thighs and the button-down shows a baaarely there chest, but it is there! Akane Fujita supervised the shaping of this area to make the chest the perfect size. It’s truly wonderful.


Effort has been made to recreate the small love handles that are shown when girls sit like this. Sagiri’s charm is that she has a risqué side despite being so young!


Finally, Sagiri’s trademark is her long hair. The movement of her hair streams like water and even the gradation to pink has been faithfully recreated!


We have even more good news! We’ve completed this much, but we, the recently named “The Little Bit Ecchi Sagiri Research Association,” are not satisfied with just this. We want to add more shaping and paint suggestions from the Decoration Masters to create a Sagiri Izumi model that’s better, cuter, and a little more ecchi! The entire staff will be working on this project to make a figure that’s even better than these Decoration Master pictures.
To put it simply: “We’re working on revisions to make the completed version even better.”

Alright, everyone! Hurry up and send in your pre-orders! Don’t miss your chance to order a figure filled with both Sagiri Izumi and Akane Fujita’s charms!

Photo Collection Concept
”My First Date with Akane Fujita in Hakone”

~Summary~
Finally, I’ll be able to visit Hakone with the woman of my dreams, Akane Fujita.
It’ll be the first time for us to be alone on a date.
We aren’t dating yet, but surely this trip will help close the distance…
Despite my low chances, I continue to hope as I approach the fated day.

It took me a little over an hour from Shinjuku on the Odakyu Line Romance Car before I finally arrived at Hakone Yumoto Station. As I was waiting at our agreed upon spot in front of the station...the angel-like Akane Fujita came to me.
“I bought these clothes yesterday, but what do you think?” She started a conversation, seeming a little embarrassed.
Once again, I thought to myself, ‘Today is my date alone together with Akane Fujita!’


It seems this was the first day off for Fujita-san in quite a while, and she was in very high spirits.
She started to splash about in the stream that flows close to Hakone Yumoto Station, enjoyed looking at various magazines at a souvenir shop, and stuffed her cheeks with Hakone’s delicious specialty, kuro-tamago.



I watched her through sidelong glances, completely nervous the entire time, to the point where I couldn’t remember much of anything that we talked about.
Perhaps noticing my nervousness, Fujita-san said, “Let’s take a break,” and we entered a Japanese inn near the mountain railway.

After waiting in the lobby for a while, she surprised me by changing into a yukata!
She seemed just a tiny bit more mature than usual. Her shy smile and blue morning glory patterned yukata suited her very well.
Touched by her kindness, before I knew it my nervousness had completely disappeared.

Our date continues on.
Fujita-san catching her breath at the inn, Fujita-san enjoying her food, Fujita-san pouting because she was tired of walking, Fujita-san saying, “Shhh,” when it seemed we might get caught by her fans, Fujita-san being prim and proper while admiring the flowers in Gora Park…
Today, during this date, I’ve caught a glimpse at many sides of Fujita-san that I’d never been able to see before.

Finally...

This is the present that Akane Fujita showed to me in Hakone, a gift given only to us: the shape of “Akaneiro.”

Please look forward for Akane Fujita's first Photo Collection, “Akaneiro”!!




The Figure’s History

On the show, Akane Fujita became a “poseable figure” and enacted several poses which were voted on by viewers.

Interested in seeing how it happened? Watch the episode here: Eromanga Sensei The Anime: Let’s Make The Latest Anime Together!




When the results of the survey came in, the pose with the most votes was...


The sitting pose!

Next, we turned Akane’s pose into a sketch of Sagiri.

Now, we turn the sketch into one awesome figure!



The Package

Get ready for a brand new illustration of Sagiri by anime production studio A-1 Pictures! The figure’s package will feature an adorable illustration of Sagiri in the same pose as the figure.


The Outfit

You guessed it - the outfit that Sagiri is wearing in this figure was also designed by viewers. We received countless outfit suggestions, and from them the following two were selected: “swimsuit” and “white button-down shirt only”. We combined these two suggestions to create the outfit you see here!


The Model

To fully reproduce Sagiri’s sweet, charming appearance and soft feel in figure form, we handed the job to a master sculptor of bishoujo figures. The sculptor for this figure is Kei Takahashi of Mirai Eizo Laboratory LLC, who has extensive experience in character modeling for anime films.


Even More Details

And we didn’t stop there. Kei Takahashi is making sure that this figure is perfect down to the smallest details. And for you Akane fans out there, guess who modeled one of Sagiri’s cushions? Yes, Sagiri’s voice actress Akane Fujita personally designed the heart-shaped cushion that comes with this figure!


Printing the 3D Model

With the help of DMM.make 3D Print, we were able to print the very first prototype of this figure in full color using 3D printing technology. The printing process was properly supervised and inspected under the eye of Akane Fujita, as well. (Alright, maybe she was just watching.) You can watch the printing process, too, on Niconico Live here!

This 3D-printed model is a sample composed of plaster and is for the purpose of form inspection only. The material, form, color, and other aspects of the final product for sale will differ.


Taking a Closer Look

This figure aims to faithfully reproduce the “puni puni” (soft and squishy) characteristic of Sagiri Izumi.
In the story, Sagiri is the age of a middle school student. One of our goals with this figure is to reproduce as faithfully as possible that youthful glow unique to young girls. And not just in appearance; we intend to perfect the feel of the figure as well, so that simply touching it will conjure a soft, feminine image in one’s mind.

Sagiri is a “hikikomori” (shut-in), which means she probably doesn’t get as much exercise as she should. With that detail in mind, we’ve appropriately made her just a little bit plumper. Along with the feminine curves from the chest area down to the abdomen area, we’ve fully incorporated the “puni puni” (soft and squishy) characteristic of Sagiri as well.

So, what do you think?



Hang on, that oversized shirt… Does that belong to Masamune?
In this figure, Sagiri is wearing a skimpy, vividly colored bikini. Loosely clad over it is a white button-down shirt.

You may be thinking, if you’re going to call this figure “a little bit ecchi”, why not ditch the shirt and just have her in a skimpy bikini?

No. No, desu.

Just imagine, what if that shirt belongs to that certain someone Sagiri has feelings for? That’s right. That changes everything, doesn’t it. It’s precisely that kind of maiden’s mindset that the addition of this white shirt expresses.

And we haven’t forgotten Sagiri’s trademark, either.
Sagiri’s most charming characteristic is the long, straight, silver hair that flows from her childlike body. Taking full advantage of the playful posing only possible with a figure, we’ve given the flow of her hair a dynamic final touch. And of course, we haven’t forgotten her charming pink ribbons, either!

Details, details everywhere!
Sagiri sits on the figure base surrounded by all her favorite stuffed toys. The pile of colorful, plump plushies really are the icing on the cake.

Behold, a Sagiri figure that completely recreates the world of Eromanga Sensei!
