Rei - White Two-Piece// Submitted @ 7:25 PM on 10.21.2012
Anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion
This is a small 'NGE Portraits' figure from Bandai. I either didn't like or was unable to obtain other figures of Rei in swimwear, but this one really drew my admiration. It's small, but quite well-detailed for a prize figure. The white bikini is simple, fresh, and attractive for a stoic character like Rei, without being inaccurately sexy (she's 14, guys!). Also of note is the ever-so-slight contrapposto of her stance, which looks quite graceful along with her raised arms. I don't ever collect figures for pure titillation value, and this piece is about as tasteful as it gets to a depiction of one of my all-time favorite anime characters. It's just so... pretty. Non-collectors question it, but I feel no shame at all in owning such a work of art, even if it features Rei Ayanami in very little clothing.
