Konami updated their Beatmania IIDX figure page today with news that Iroha Umegiri, the first in their planned Bemani character figure series, has been given the green light for production.

Those willing to overlook her deformed appendage and other design flaws can look forward to her release on October 26th at 4,935 yen (tax included). (no more)
