Back when we reported on the contents of the current issue of Hobby Japan, what we failed to mention was that along with HJ’s mail order offering of Ignis the Black a Jingai Makyou side story novel began serialization in the magazine as well. Yesterday Akiba Blog picked up that story and more, bringing news that “Makimoto-san“, a character appearing in the February 2006 initial novelization of the game, will be appearing in next month’s iteration of the story. While the Akiba Blog article only mentions that she’ll appear within the text of the serial novel, the side by side presentation of a photograph of Yume no Kagutsuchino Koukoku‘s Makimoto-san sculpt (along with her apparent disappearance from the sculptor’s site) raises the hope that we’ll see her incarnated in figure form at some point in the future. Pictures of novelized Ignis the Black and Makimoto-san below:
