• Seiyuu Sayaka Senbongi Unveils Life-size Mumei Statue from Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress

    After weeks of teasing, the official @anime_kabaneri twitter page has finally tweeted a picture of the completed version of the life-size statue to one of the hottest anime last season, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress. And the person who unveiled the completed work was none other than seiyuu Sayaka Senbongi, Mumei’s own seiyuu.

    While she is best known for voicing Mumei in Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, Sayaka Senbongi is also known for her roles in The Chronicles of the Going Home Club as Claire Kokonoe, as well as Biscuit’s little sister, Cracker Griffon, in Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans.

    Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress character designer, Haruhiko Mikimoto, supervised the making of the statue himself. It is currently being displayed at the noitamina Store and Cafe, together with other exhibits from Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress and Battery. The cafe is holding a joint exhibition for the two anime.
