Update 30 July 2012 with wonderfest summer 2012 pics. Look at these gorgeous boys! ♥
The Okumura brothers are from one of my favourite animes, Aoi no Exorcist, based on a manga by Kazue Katou. In the anime, Rin is voiced by Okamoto Nobuhiko 岡本信彦 and Yukio’s seiyuu is Fukuyama Jun 福山潤.
Update 30 July 2012. Wonderfest Summer July 2012 coloured prototype displays! Megahouse definitely nailed the sculpt. They’ll be including a normal face Rin with this figure too.
Look at my heart-marked eyes with its loving stare at Yukio (♥o♥)
The brothers placed next to each other. Love them! Now considering if I should wait for the price drop (which happens for most Megahouse figures) or preorder immediately when they become available orz;;
Last update 26 May 2012:
Woohoo~ prototypes of both boys are out!
Rin’s prototype was first revealed in Wonderfest Winter in February 2012. And now Yukio’s sculpt is out! Gosh they look gorgeous! :D
RIN!!! :D Too awesome! He is one of my fav. characters ever <333
I love the sculpt and pose! Hopefully the final coloured figure will look even more awesome.
Blame motherly instincts again. These boys are so adorable <333
And this pic is here just because… I can ( ^o^)/yukata-moe
Summary (from wiki):
The story revolves around Rin Okumura, a teenager possessing abnormal strength and endurance who, along with his younger twin brother Yukio, was raised by Father Shiro Fujimoto. Soon after Yukio departs to study at the prestigious True Cross Academy, Rin learns that he is the son of Satan, the strongest of all demons. Witnessing Shiro dying to protect him, Rin ends up doing what his guardian asked him never to do: draw the demon-slaying blade Kurikara, which restrains his demonic powers, from its scabbard. From that moment on, Rin not only gains permanent demonic features like fangs, pointed ears, fiery “horns” and a tail, but also the power to ignite himself into blue flames that can destroy almost anything they touch…
If you haven’t watched the anime or read the manga, I highly recommend you do so! :D It’s one of those rare stories where plot is interesting, characters are fun, adorable and very importantly, female characters are not annoying! :D Many heartwarming and comedic moments as well. Makes me miss my time in school too ^^;; And the seiyuu cast in the anime is also quite the dream, starring Nakai Kazuya, Kaji Yuki, Ono Daisuke, Kamiya Hiroshi, Yusa Kouji, Fujiwara Keiji and more… don’t miss it!
Although I don’t actually ship the brothers as a couple, their fanart is amazing and I quite enjoy them lol. Their coupling sure is popular! And Rin is like overall uke to everybody else lol~ a “Everyone x Rin” harem. Kind of like Everybody x Natsume harem (Natsume Yuujin Chou) and Everybody x Kuroko harem (Kuroko no Basket) :D
I’ll update again when coloured pics of the prototypes are up! :D
