    Kotobukyia Unveils Their Kill Bill Bishoujo

    Kotobukiya is so unpredictable with their Bishoujo announcements! We always know that big events in both the US & Japan will have a few, but they tend to spring totally finished figures on us out of nowhere. Like today, when we’re getting the fully sculpted and painted Kill Bill Bishoujo! Her art was over a year ago, so perhaps it’s not so surprising that we’re getting it before 2016 is over.

    I was really sold by the art, but I’m not sure how I feel about the finished version. I feel like the face is missing the angst and attitude you expect from the Bride. It’s a little too placid for my taste, though I do think the pose & outfit came out looking very on-model and happily not overly sexed up.

    Kotobukiya Announces A Kill Bill Bishoujo

    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??
