NYCC 2015: Kotobukiya’s Kusuriuri Gallery


While we occasionally get more artsy figures and we occasionally get male figures, rarely do the two overlap. In fact, I can’t recall a single male figure that really went all-out on the color & atmosphere other than Benten. Thankfully the blight has ended, because we now have the gorgeous Kusuriuri from Mononoke!

Probably the most stand-out thing about this piece is the colors. They’ve vivid, vibrant, and very different from what we usually see on a figure. He’s anything but subtle! Add in the gorgeous background and you have a real stunner. And while the price is a little higher from what we usually see from Koto (¥12,500), it’s still way below the large, artsy prices we see from other companies. I’m tempted to order him, but I feel like you’d need to dedicate a crazy display just to him and I’m running out of space!
