MegaHouse has opened pre-orders for a new Bocchi the Rock! palm-sized figure under its Melty Princess line of handheld figures, which will be shipped out in late January 2024. The figure measures at around 90 mm in height and will cost 7,700 yen (US$53.00), with tax included. 

The figure comes attached with Bocchi’s normal facial expression and can also be interchanged with the melty one. It can be purchased on most retail websites where figures are sold such as Premium Bandai, AmiAmi, and HobbyLink Japan, among others. 

 

The 12-episode Bocchi the Rock! TV anime series aired from October 9, 2022 to December 25, 2022. CloverWorks is the animation production company and the series streamed on Crunchyroll as it aired. 

The original manga series by Aki Hamaji was first launched in Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Max magazine on December 19, 2017. Five tankoubon volumes have been released as of November 2022, with a sixth volume set for release on August 25, 2023. 

Yen Press releases the manga series in English and describes the synopsis as: 

Hitori Gotou just wants to make friends, but the thought of approaching a stranger on her own makes her so nervous that she’s spent the entirety of middle school teaching herself how to shred on the guitar—to moderately successful (albeit anonymous) YouTube fame—in the hopes of seeming cool enough for someone else to reach out to her instead. After bringing her guitar to school provokes zero interest, Hitori’s just about ready to shrivel up and die…which is when Nijika Ijichi comes across her moping in a playground and begs her to fill in for her band’s flakey guitarist for their first-ever live performance! It’s like her wish came true—but does this most antisocial of introverts have what it takes to perform in front of real people?!
