Diamond Comic Distributors is importing a fully painted resin figure of Mizuho, the comely teacher, wife, resident observer of the Galaxy Federation, and star of the popular Onegai Teacher anime series. Sculpted in Japan by Tsukuru Shirashige, the statue stands 5.5 inches tall and will ship to stores in March of 2004. Diamond Comic Distributors has the exclusive North American rights to this flirtatious figure.
Bandai Entertainment distributes the 12-episode Onegai Teacher anime (also known as 'Please Teacher') in the U.S., while Comics One has the North American rights to the Onegai Teacher manga series. A sequel to the Onegai Teacher anime series, Onegai Twins, is currently airing in Japan, which means that this property isn't going away anytime soon.
