As the autumn wind begins to rustle through the trees, the idyllic days of summer vacation fade further away into nostalgic memory. But there's always next summer to look forward to.

Expected to go on sale next Spring, this swimsuit figure of Akane Shinjo, the lovely main antagonist of the anime series "SSSS.GRIDMAN," may help fans bide their time until then, not to mention provide a beautiful addition to their collection.

新条アカネ 水着style (Akane Shinjo swimsuit style)

Anime goods and figure maker Aquamarine Co., Ltd. has announced a pair of figures from 2018's hit anime SSSS.GRIDMAN featuring frenemies Rikka Takarada and Akane Shinjo in swimsuits. Two days ago, details on Rikka's figure were revealed in a press release and today it was Akane's turn. (If you're a Rikka fan, you can find more information here.)

Both figures were designed based on an original illusrtation of Rikka and Akane playing at the beach.

Akane is holding an inflatable ring with a Gridman motif and she stands on a customized acrylic platform. With her winsome smile and bubbly expression, she'll surely brighten up your shelf or wherever you place her. Of course, she'll look great with the Rikka figure too.
