    Kotobukiya’s DC Bishoujo Katana Is Sculpted

    It’s been like a mini Bishoujo festival these past few days! First the art for Chun-Li and Supergirl, and now we’re getting a look at the sculpt for Katana, whose illustration was revealed at Toy Fair. This is just the initial sculpt and is not the finished version, but she looks pretty polished to me!

    I’m loving the detail put into her outfit, and also of course dem hips. Is this the first time a Bishoujo is thicker in sculpt form than art form? I also like that they fixed the kind of strange gap between her breasts in the illustration that made them look like they were floating.

    Kotobukiya Announces Supergirl Bishoujo Version 2

    It seems like it is a day for old Bishoujos getting an update! First Chun-Li, and now Supergirl. Granted, her first Bishoujo was ages and ages ago, but this is still a bit of a surprise.

    Check Out The Art For The New Chun-Li Bishoujo

    I’m going to be honest: when Kotobukiya announced a version 2 Chun-Li Bishoujo, I wasn’t exactly over the moon. I like the first one well enough, and do we really need another of her when there are so many awesome Street Fighter ladies waiting in the wings? Survey says… maybe we do!
