SDCC 2016: Kotobukiya’s Motoko Kusanagi Gallery


The focus at Kotobukiya’s US event booths is, predictably, more on the comic and movie side of things. Lots of Bishoujos, lots of ArtFX and statues. But they always bring a few anime figures to the table, and one of my most anticipated ones from them was at SDCC: Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell ARISE!

GitS is one of the first animes I can remember hearing about as a kid, so it’s pretty nostalgic for me (even though I never actually finished it, go figure). And while it’s a little weird to see Motoko out of her signature suit, I love her super pissed off face and sassy pose here. Plus the base is to die for!
