Tekken Bishoujo Asuka.....NO

Kotobukiya let's have a talk. You are really incurring my wrath with this Tekken Bishoujo line, you are taking something I absolutely love and ripping it to shreds in front of me. Why did you have to do this to Asuka Kazama, why did you have to overly sexualize her costume but keep Jaina fairly covered up.

Here is the original costume that they decided to destroy. A full covering top, a bare belly and some short shorts. Nothing needed to be altered at all but of course they give her a extreme chest and take off the top of her bodysuit. Again this is completely out of character for her, she is not a sexual character at all. Her character is one that has a strong sense of justice and is a noisy school girl.

Here would have been a great outfit for her Bishoujo debate. People seem like the school girl look and she is a school girl. It's colorful and would translate great to a PVC figure plus a cute and playful pose would only enhance that cuteness.

Now if they wanted to go for high end sex appeal this outfit would have been a great choice. I really don't know how this outfit actual works or how it actual will stay on in a fight. The pose would have worked to in a bishoujo figure as well.

I really have no hope at all with this line if they are going to keep turning the characters I love in to overly sexual caricatures of themselves. I am now legit afraid to see how they will over sexualize Ling Xiaoyu, which is one of the most innocent characters in Tekken. A playful and cute school girl who originally entered the tournament to get money to build her own amusement park. I will be shocked if Koto ever made a Tekken Bishoujo I would actually be glad to own.   read

Bishoujo Line Your Getting On My Bad Side

Now let my first state that as of now I don't hate the line entirely but with recent releases and promo art the Bishoujo line is starting to get under my skin. When Kotobukiya started the Marvel Bishoujo line I thought it was pretty awesome, the designs were nice and the characters that they were choosing were excellent choices. Then they moved onto DC and continued producing some really great statues of some of my favorite characters. So far so good, it was nice seeing a different take on comic book characters stylized in a "anime" type look. Then it happened they released Lucy the Ghostbusters Bishoujo. I raged a bit since I absolutely love Ghostbuster and seeing it turned into that was something I didn't like at all. The ripped pants, the pushed up boobs, the pink thong, this is not my Ghostbusters, this was to me a LOLOLOLOLOlOLOL SEXY GHOSTBUSTERS. Something I wished never happened. I already voiced my extreme dislike of this figure so no need to go on. Then this little thing popped up on the front page and all my rage was back.

A Bishoujo figure of the girls from Tekken and they made Christie into a skank. For those of you who don't know I am obsessed with Tekken, well it goes past obsession to be honest. Tekken is forever my favorite fighting franchise and to finally have some statues I can display in my room should be awesome but NO. I can't do that because they have been turned into this.

This is the costume her statue is based off of. As you can see NO ASSLESS PANTS and she has a very reasonable sized chest. Also I would have liked this pose better then the one she has and a covered up backsized. I honestly don't see way her costume had to be altered at all it is great as is.

Then the rage increased with this

Here it is, Alisa turned into even more of a skank but the reason this made my rage go over the edge is because this is so out of character for her.

Here she is the SWEET AND ADORABLE Alisa. That is her character a sweet and adorable robot girl, not whatever the hell they turned her into. Her costume was already cute adorable and highly colorfully, so why was it need to be altered into a no skirt, push up boobs, show off more skin thing. Both girls costume were already nice and did not need to be altered in anyway at all.

I know what you all are going to say: "but there interpretations" okay but the DC and Marvel Bishoujo's are also that but all the released girls have kept their original costumes intact and not altered in anyway at all. So why now does this Tekken line of girls have to be altered in such skanky ways. If this is going to continue I really don't want more girls released at all. I would hate to see characters like Zafina, Ling Xiaoyu and Jun Kazama get turned into these skank versions. The girls of Tekken aren't even know for being extremely sexy at all, except for Anna since her character is portrayed that way. I just don't like characters I have an attachment to get treated this way.

Though Kotobukiya has redeemed themselves from the above things with this.

Seriously announce a release date and take all my money.   read
