The production on Sailor’s Naginata Togi and Cross series had been on pause since December 2015, but Sailor had announced today that full production will resume on October 5th, 2018. The series will be completely revamped with a new look, feel, quality, and craftsmanship. There is also a slight price increase between 40~50% depending on the type:
Naginata Togi 25,000 yen → 50,000 yen
Naginata Togi Emperor 35,000 yen → 60,000 yen
