figma Kiryuin Satsuki

Warning: May be NSFW if you have an aversion to skimpily-clad girls!

Kill la Kill is probably a well-known anime by this point. I didn’t catch it when it first came out, and missed out on figma Ryuko which seems to be fetching a pretty penny on the secondary market.

Cheerful Japan! is a collaboration project between Good Smile Company and other figure makers to help support the relief efforts in Northern Japan. Every month for the next year we will be announcing a new charity project on the 11th of each month. We hope the money donated will help Japan get back on it’s feet even if it’s just a little bit faster!

figma Homura Akemi

It was almost necessary for me to get figma Homura to pair up with her Madoka. In my review of figma Madoka I mentioned that I was disappointed with its quality. This time round I didn’t have high expectations. In terms of quality control, Homura somehow did much better.
