The super attractive heroine Mumei’s realistic life-sized statue will be displayed at “Kabaneri & Battery Gallery” which is scheduled to take place on August 21st (Sunday) in Aqua city Odaiba Mediage 1F Cinema Atrium.
This life-sized statue is faithfully created based on the original illustration drawn by the character designer Haruhiko Mikimoto and surprisingly, they are even planning to offer 10 copies of this amazing statue for sale.
In this event, Sayaka Senbongi (voice actress of Mumei) will make her appearance and go on stage to commemorate the completion of the statue together. Below are a couple photos of the statue. According to the creation team, they will still make some more modifications under Haruhiko Mikimoto’s supervision and then fully paint it. Although it’s not complete yet, I’ve got to say it looks awesome already. I am pretty sure this will be a big chance for all the fans who are crazy for Mumei!
This one is an illustration of Mumei.
And this is the Mumei statue.
In accordance with the change of the neck angle, they modified the eyes.
They even reproduced the laces on her knee pads faithfully following the drawing by Mikimoto.
They added some more hair.
The rifle was created based on the character setting materials, under the rigid supervision by the general art director Yasuyuki Ebara and the overall setting director Jyunpei Kasaoka.
Tetsuro Araki checked on the rifle. He looks pretty cool!
And in the end, they took a photo of everyone involved in this wild project. Great job, everyone!
Yes, we know that’s a must-check area, director lol!
The pre-order for the statue begins after the event. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
* Details on the statue will be announced later on their official website.
