As creepy as Bandai’s line of ‘Half Age Characters’ sounds, it’s really just cute, chibi versions of popular anime ladies. Given that they’ve had the Persona license for a while now, it was really only a matter of time before they gave us some nice versions of the ladies of Persona 4, and now they’re here! We’ve got 4 figures in this particular set: Rise, Yukiko, Chie, and… Nanako! I wonder why they didn’t pick Naoto? I’m not going to complain, since I adore Nanako and she doesn’t have a lot of merchandise!
Rise is wearing one of her idol outfits, Yukiko is spilling one of her “mystery meals,” Chie is eating meat, and Nanako is shopping! Each comes with extra accessories (glasses for Chie & Yukiko, an extra face for Nanako and Rise) and a single box will run you ¥700 with a January release… though of course, they’ll come as cases too! Though they are on the pricey side I really love this set, they’re just so cute. I wonder if there will be a boys line as well? I know people who would kill for a Half-Age Kanji with a little stuffed bunny.
[UPDATE] They are up for order! Snag a set here at AmiAmi.
