A 1/6 doll! (Again)
Season 2 of Kuroshitsuji, The Black Butler (黒執事) anime may have ended but the manga and related goods sure are still going on strong. Azone International will now make 1/6 sized dolls of Ciel Phantomhive and Sebastian Michaelis!
What do you think of Ciel’s Azone doll? I find him rather cute ^^ He has nicely detailed clothes and accessories. He was first revealed during a Doll Show in Japan sometime in August/September 2010. Compared with the Dal version, which do you prefer?
I’m still waiting eagerly for prototype photos of their Sebastian doll. Azone usually has no major issues when it comes to cute/boyish/girly dolls but their adult male dolls? Hmm… I wonder.
As for Ciel’s doll, pre-orders have opened recently.
