I’m not a follower of Bleach series cos it was already 200+ episodes when I got back into watching anime ^^ but I liked the first episode when I sampled it.
Anyway, this is one of the latest male figures to come under Megahouse’s GEM stable. So far, Megahouse’s figure releases include most of the boys from Gintama, Kaworu from Evangelion, Kimura from Rurouni Kenshin, Night Rikuo from Nurarihyon no Mago and Kakashi from Naruto. Their poses are usually relatively static with variations by giving the figures interchangeable parts (see: Kakashi post) and/or create fluidity by giving them wind-blown hair or flowing fabric.
This “Bankai version” of Kurosaki Ichigo is given the wind treatment too and as you can see, the prototype looks rather beautiful. According to the description, his Zanpakutou is in Banaki style as well with chains! … … Well, not that I know what that is about lol~
The flowing coattails (if that’s what you call it) and folds of the hakama is lovely.
I’m terribly moe-ed by the shot from his back (^///^) and I quite like his angsty face and the lined details of this figure.
And… did you notice it? YES… THAT! That sexy, SEXY collar bone :D~
Grabbing him from CDJapan at 29% discount! Made me wonder if they made a mistake at first when I saw the price ^^;;
