yes, and Haruka25 put the price above 9800 yen. (thank you)
you can place the order from 3 Feb 2012 and you can receive the figure around July 2012.
the overall size including the base is a little big around H340mm*W200mm*D200mm (the figure is around 320mm) and ppl said if you compare the mao's photo and the figure, you will find out Mao has smaller face and longer legs Smile

in the page, you also can find Mao's comments
"デジタルスキャニングをしてもらい、「3Dデータ」や灰色の「フィギュアの原型」を見たときには、
これが自分なのか、よくわからなかったのですが、色がついてくると自分と似ていると思いました。
周りの皆さんにもよく似ていると言われます。
スパイラルのポーズも本当に自分の形とそっくりです。
衣装の細かいところまで、そっくりに仕上がっていたので、びっくりしました。
是非、本物のフィギュアを実際に手に取って見てもらいたいですね。"

I think the clip showed that they met each other in the beginning of the game, Taka was going to top left and Mao is going bottom right of the map.
I remembered I saw other pic that Taka was in the place Mao were hiding.
After watching run for money several time (we have re-broadcast all the time), I found out Taka was leaving the place near Mao was hiding after the Urashima Tarō mission.
so he may meet her again in the middle of the game Smile

thanks everyone~ i am running program again and will work overtime AGAIN..uh.

http://www.nikkei.com/sports/column/article/g=96958A88889DE1EAE4E7E0E2E7E2E2EAE2E0E0E2E3E0E2E2E2E2E2E2;p=9694E3E0E2EAE0E2E3E2E1E6E6E4

this is article about Taka, but very interesting he talked about in page 4 and page 5.
Japanese readers can enjoy it first.
Basically he talked about the scores in Japanese nats are lower than other countries'. when others with higher scores in their own nats may make ppl think they are so great then sort of gaining reputation for high scores in international competition.

In the end, I can feel his "unhappy" about not getting the assignment for 4cc. since he said he didn't have chance to compete with P-chan to see the difference *laugh* I don't think he is saying he is very good or something like that but he more likely is "against JSF".

Sorry it's not real translation, it's my "reader's comments".

his comments fit our feelings, right? if mao can't get credit for her combination jumps in nats how can she get credit from international competition especially those judges still feel Mao can't make full rotation for her combination jumps.

Thanks shikure The article was an interesting read. flower

Yeah, the reader comments are correct. Taka was basically saying that the general consensus of skating fans think that scores in national competitions are always going to be inflated. But that is not the case in Japan as evident by the score received by Takahashi in his sp when he won nationals with a 4-3 combo. He thought Takahashi was going to receive a score over 100pts, but instead only received a score of 96.05. And that it's tactful on the part of the Canadian Skating Fed and Russian Skating Fed when they give out scores like total of 302.14 to Chan and 100.09 to Plushenko in the short. Those scores are not going to be on record on the ISU, but they work in a way to appeal to the skating world that our skaters are that great. Even if judges will think, "those scores are way too much" it leaves an impression on them. Taka went to the U.S. to tweek his LP in the first week of February so it'll be easier to do the quad. The former part of the article talks about endurance, quad, how anayltical he is towards skating and skate boots and how they affect his skating.

Mao landed safely at Narita Airport
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YSPx5ZamoU

"The best thing about 4CC was being able to include the 3A in my programs"

"If I land them it's something I can build confidence from so I definitley want to work hard to be able to do them at the world championships"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=eU4elnrPmeM&NR=1

"I viewed the 4CC as a 'step' towards the world championships, so I feel I am going up the ladder step by step towards the world championships"

"I was able to rotate the 3A and jump them as soon as I got to Colorado Springs so I don't want to forget the sense of that and be able to do them in Japan in order for me to go for the 3A at the world championships"

Thank you shikure sunny and I love Mao's beanie cap too Rose.
But I agree with you that the article really pinpointed a lot of feelings inside and described a lot of what we were feeling. It's almost as though the judges at the Japanese Championships are trying so hard to look fair even if it means not giving the benefit of the doubt to skaters and support them. And Taka even said he wished he received a higher score at national competitions because other countries use them strategically. I mean people are already viewing the scores as being inflated yet if you still give the strict scores the judges might think they're even lower skaters than that score really encompasses. Sigh. I wish they'd fire Hiramatsu Junko and Hashimoto Seiko because I don't think they really care about their skaters.

oh that's really nice to hear... which means Mao is becoming more confident... it really funny that Mao seems most confident after she has gotten silver compared to win she win.. it just seems like she becomes eager to reach the highest stage and has her goal set in the next competition, her determinatio is really impressive and i sooooooooooooo look forward to see her at worlds...
