This is a thing

Well, this is something I didn't expect whatsoever. Kotobukiya has had its weird concepts for its popular Bishoujo line. Sure, there's the oddball, at least to me, of Freddy and Jason, not to mention the MiB Agent. The latest... read

One of the loveliest corners of the floor
Jul 25
You didn't think that I'd leave out the Bishoujos, did you? Of course not, what would a Kotobukiya booth tour be without the popular line of ladies interpreted by Shunya Yamashita? It wouldn't be complete, that's what. And let me tell you, Kotobukiya really outdid themselves this year at San Diego Comic Con. Hit the jump to see the photos we got on the show floor as well as my impressions. read
