Junji Ito Uzumaki Kirie Nendoroid Announced

A Junji Ito Uzumaki Nendoroid of Kirie Goshima is in the works. Good Smile Company announced the figure at Anime Expo 2022. It also showed art of the heroine. However, there’s no concept art of the chibi figure or prototype available.

Here’s the official announcement for the Uzumaki Kirie Nendoroid. It suggests that the figure will feature hair with the story’s distinctive spirals. Due to the nature of the reveal, we might not see an unpainted or painted prototype until later in 2022. She, alongside characters like Shuichi Saito and Chie Maruyama, is one of the major characters in the story.

This comes ahead of quite a few Uzumaki announcements. For example, an anime adaptation is in development. Ito will even play a role in it. The live-action movie will also be coming out on Blu-ray. There’s an expected 2022 release window for that.

There’s no release date for the Junji Ito Uzumaki Nendoroid of Kirie. The Uzumaki anime will appear in October 2022 on Adult Swim. Viz Media handled the localization of the manga.
