Rumor: To Heart 2 Another Days lacks Ikuno route?

An update at Moon Phase has lent credence to the rumor that the long-awaited latest installment in the To Heart 2 franchise, Another Days, lacks a story route for Komaki Ikuno. The invalid younger sister of Komaki Manaka was a big draw leading up to the release of the Another Days expansion, so if this news is true it could mean we’re in for another round of hellfire from irate Japanese fans similar to the ones that accompanied the release of Light’s Dies Irae and Cuffs’ Garden. We’ll be watching for further news on this; the game goes on sale this Friday, February 29th.

Figure News: Kotobukiya’s Katsuragi Misato, Komaki Ikuno PVCs up for preorder

Kotobukiya has updated its official release info page with data on two new PVC releases coming down the pipe in March 2008, and both are now up for preorder at Hobby Stock: first is Evangelion‘s Katsuragi Misato (scooped here), clocking in at 1/6 scale and 7,140 yen retail. Second is Komaki Ikuno from To Heart 2, who is 1/8 scale and comes with a functional wheelchair at 6,090 yen retail. Both have charm points to recommend them, Misato for being Misato and generally underserved when it comes to figures, and Ikuno for her wheelchair (which is sort of sad, but you know that thing is going to be used in all sorts of creative ways).

[ERO] Figure News: Taki Corporation’s Komaki Ikuno PVC from To Heart 2 up for preorder

Word is in from Amiami last night that Taki Corporation‘s Komaki Ikuno (DVD jacket ver.) PVC figure is now up for preorder. Based on the jacket illustration from volume 2 of the To Heart 2 OVA, she’s meant to come as a pair with her older sister Manaka. She’s set for release in December at 25 cm tall (16 scale?) and a retail price of 9,240 yen, and is fully castoffable; with a face sculpt that could be use to frighten small children I’m not sure who will be in the market for such a misshapen item, but she’s out there now for fans to pass their own judgement.
