It has been over 20 years since T.M.Revolution, the solo project of Takanori Nishikawa, made its debut. To celebrate, the T.M.Revolution’s 20th anniversary project will create figures of cute female characters wearing the famous costume from his Hot Limit music video. Their visuals have now been revealed!
The three characters are Super Sonico, the mascot of Nitroplus, Uzuki Shimamura from the game The Idolmaster Cinderella Girls, and Eriri Spencer Sawamura from the anime Saenai Kanojo no Sodatekata (How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend) .
Information on their release date and prices have not yet been announced.
The song Hot Limit by T.M.Revolution is best known for its sensational music video in which Takanori Nishikawa is wearing a unique costume that looks like a black ribbon tied around is body. Also unique is how he is singing on a small stage in the middle of the sea while being blown by the strong breeze made by an electric fan.
To commemorate T.M.Revolution’s 20th anniversary, Toppu Co Ltd was established in April 2016 to manage the anniversary-related goods. Nishikawa himself is the CEO of the company.
On top of this, the company began the sales of Official Hot Limit Suit which looks exactly like the costume from the music video in December of the same year.

Nishikawa joined Summer Comiket for the first time as a regular booth in 2016. The booth’s doujinshi, which sold out during the morning, included an illustration of Super Sonico, and it was announced in October that this illustration will get a figure adaptation in the near future.
