Shigure Asa Long Hair Ver. by Kotobukiya

Let’s go back a few months, more than a few months, all the way back to August of 2009 when Shigure Asa arrived on my door step. Like last weeks review of Azaka, Asa’s presence in the wild seems lacking to almost non-existent, though having been out there longer than Azaka she has received some attention. To help make up for this deficit of Asa on the Internets today I choose you Asa.

Kokuto Azaka by Kotobukiya

Delayed by one day, but it’s better late than never. I’d procrastinated and when it came time to write up the review, I was sick and went to bed. Still sick, but awake (barely).

I have a few figures I could review such as Good Smile Company’s World is Mine Miku, or Orchid Seed’s Seena Kanon, but those are over done right now and I don’t feel like beating a dead horse. I’d rather the horse decompose for a while, cast revive, and have a zombie horse! Zombies are cool, they’re making a come back.

So in the meantime I’ve decided that Movic’s Kokuto Azaka was in need of a scrutineering.

Ayanami Rei (2008) by Alter

It feels like it’s been a year since I wrote a post, as if it must be 2010 already, but surely I jest, right? Is it really the end of another decade? Well damn, so it is. Happy New Year to everyone then! Another year another batch of figures to collect! (Or should I have made my new years resolution “stop ‘wasting’ money on anime figures”?)

Today we’ll be discussing an older figure, a figure from the year two thousand and eight, ah, I remember it like it was yesterday. Actually that’s a lie, I have no idea what happened in two thousand and eight. Anyway, Ayanami Rei here is a slightly older figure that has been previously reviewed by many other people already, but that’s ok, I’m going to do one anyway!

Shikinami Asuka Langley Plugsuit Ver (2009) by Kotobukiya

The final installment of my 3 part series I like to call Kotobukiya’s Rebuild of Evangelion series. Today we have Shikinami Asuka Langley up for review, a re-imagined version of Soryu Asuka Langley with less bitch and more dere. By no means the perfect mix of tsun and dere like Horo, but a very good attempt, I enjoyed her in Evangelion 2.0.

I previously reviewed both Ayanami Rei and Katsuragi Misato as well.

Katsuragi Misato (2008) by Kotobukiya

Today we have Katsuragi Misato from Kotobukiya’s Rebuild of Evangelion series of figures. Previously I reviewed their Ayanami Rei and Friday I will review their Shikinami Asuka Langley. Misato stands out from Asuka and Rei because she has far far less figures made in her image. In the past 14 years since the series’ debut Rei and Asuka have accumulated over 287 figures between them (not including garage kits!), Misato only 16, and of course not all of those 16 are well produced. Kotobukiya’s thankfully is, but how well?
