Ritsu, the one and only K-On girl I plan to purchase and she comes with drums! Guitars are so over done these days, drums are in.
Ritsu was really the only character on K-On I actually liked, Mio was boring, Yui was just crazy though her sister was fine, Mugi’s eyebrows are obscene and Azunyan was a killjoy. Though the best character of all remains Sawako-sensei, or rather “Katherine” as her stage name apparently was, but she was a secondary character. At any rate, the most unique thing about Ritsu is her drums, I suspect many people will be ordering her because of them, myself included. Ritsu on her own is rather bland, as are all the girls in their school attire, but throw in their instruments they become a little more exciting, but everyone has guitars. I’ve never seen drums on a figure before, they probably exist but I’ve never seen them.
Ritsu’s sculpted by Numakura Toshiaki in the standard 1/8th, she’s pricy at ¥9,800 / $120 CAD but discounts drop that to ¥7,820 / $96 CAD. It already feels like I’ve been waiting for this figure forever, but she wont be arriving anytime before February 2011 unfortunately.
