Movie Bishoujo Archive

  • We have seen a lot from Kotobukiya this year at NYCC. Everything from their panel announcements, Squirrel Girl, Harley Quinn ArtFX+, and the Chucky Bishoujo to their DC, Marvel, Star Wars, and anime figures. And we still have a few behind the glass galleries to come! But for now, we’ve got an overview of everything else they had out on display. Like their Edward Scissorhands Bishoujo (one of my all-time faves from the line), their Clash of Clans figures, Sniper Wold and Lucky Chloe, and the painted Rainbow Mika picture.

  • We’ve brought you quite a bit from Kotobukiya’s NYCC panel so far: Ms. Marvel Bishoujo, Katana Bishoujo, DC tv shows, Spike, Star Wars, Marvel, and DC. But there are always some assorted odds and ends left over! They had information about a handful of their anime and game figures. None of it was that new, but we did get confirmation that the Street Fighter Bishoujo line would be continuing! They didn’t have a reveal here, but we were assured that Rainbow Mika is not the last one we’ll see. Along with that, we found out that the Horror Bishoujo line is also continuing! Again, no actual announcement, but they said there were “several interesting licenses” they were discussing. Which hopefully means not just one more Horror Bish, but a ton of them!

  • Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands has been a wild ride. I went from ‘what the hell‘ to ‘oh, that looks okay‘ to ‘holy shit so beautiful and I need it.’ If you told me a year ago that I’d be lusting after a goth-tastic girl version of Edward Scissorhands I would have called you crazy. But hey, we all make mistakes. Edward (Edwina?)’s outfit is basically the clothing my true self wants to wear all the time. The belts, the fluffy but torn skirt, the amazing boots and thigh-high stockings. Fabulous! And since this is the Bishoujo line, she’s got a killer butt. They sure do know what the people want.

  • I’ve been cautiously optimistic for Kotobukiya’s Edward Scissorhands Horror Bishoujo since the art was first revealed. While it seems totally wacky, moreso even than Freddy & Jason, the art was just really cool and interesting-looking. Plus, we don’t really have any gloomy goth Bishoujos (or figures in general let’s be honest) so I was anticipating a real change of pace for the line. Well, she’s fully sculpted and painted, and I am totally blown away. I mean, the detail level is just… woah. Look at how beautiful and moody her face is! All those belts and buckles! This is definitely one of the best Bishoujos we’ve ever seen, which I never would have expected at that initial reveal. And let’s all take a moment to appreciate that her name was not gender-swapped, so there’s no “Edwina Scissorhands.” I would like a few more scars, though. [via Kotobukiya’s Facebook]

  • We already saw Kotobukiya’s two pieces of Bishoujo news at Toy Fair (the art for Wonder Girl and Thor & Loki), but of course there was lots more–including the newly painted Harley Quinn v2 and Spider Gwen. And my waifu Lucky Chloe. Perhaps most importantly, we got some interesting info about Bishoujo Chucky. A few people thought she was a bit too cutesy for a horror Bish, but never fear! She will come with a second face that’s all scarred/messed up like the real Chucky.

  • We’ve had a lot of Bishoujo announcements today, but this is defintiely the strangest. Stranger than girl Loki & Thor, for sure. Actually given how ~edgy~ and ~sexy~ Tarantino makes The Bride, maybe not that surprising. But I sure didn’t expect it. That’s right, we’re getting a Kill Bill Bishoujo! With… with a zipped up top? Is such a thing even possible for Shunya to draw?? [via Shunya Yamashita, thanks to Stuart Campbell for the heads up!]

  • I was a little on the fence about the Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands announcement. I mean, I don’t want ~so sexy so emo Edwina Scissorhands.~ But the teaser looked great, so I kept my hopes up. And, well, here she is–not too sexified! I love her confused expression, it’s so cute, and of course I am a sucker for the black lacy outfit–the belts! So goth, so stylish. I wonder how all that curly hair is going to translate into a physical sculpt? [via Shunya Yamashita]

  • Just a couple days ago we got that teaser for Bishoujo Chucky, and right before Wonder Festival (which is only a few hours away) we’re getting the full reveal! And not just that, but a second announcement: Tiffany from Bride of Chucky. I was super skeptical about this release to be honest: I mean, Chucky? Really? But she’s SO CUTE! Just adorable, and not at all creepy. Plus we have glamorously goth Tiffany to go with her. What a cute couple they will be. [via Shunya Yamashita]

  • My least-favorite part of Wonder Festival (besides the crippling stress of actually covering the event) is the teasers. There are just… a lot of them, from every company, and it’s so much news! Plus it gives away some of the surprises. One of these in particular I would much rather have seen at WonFest and been like “wow, what the hell?” But alas, here we are. Anyway, we have a couple art-based announcements: Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands, Pokemon Trainer Red, and… Bishoujo Chucky?!?! Yup, she’s the newest Horror Bishoujo! We also have the painted sculpt for their KanColle Hibiki and the Cu-Poche Verniy, and a ton of totally new “announcements.” We’ll be getting a figure of Sakura¬†Shinguji from Sakura Wars (AW YIS), Anna Mochizuki from IM@S Million Live!, and Danua from Granblue Fantasy. Phew, that’s a lot of stuff! [via Kotobukiya]

  • Merry Christmas, Plastikitties! On this most present-filled of days we have a Christmas gift from one of our favorite companies, Kotobukiya. We’ve had two characters in the Horror Bishoujo line so far: Freddy and Jason. I kind of expected Michael Myers next (the 3rd member of the horror holy trinity) but no, it’s a more seasonal selection! Edward Scissorhands. While this is a surprise, it’s a pretty happy one. I mean, look at her sword skirt! Or, you know, the outline of the sword skirt, since this is really just a tease. Maybe we’ll get the full reveal early in the new year. [via Kotobukiya’s Facebook]
