The good folks at Tsume-Art have added a bit of star power to their impressive HQS line with the addition of the ninja assassin, Black Star. As a fan of Atsushi Ōkubo's fantasy anime/manga, Soul Eater, I am ecstatic to see the series get some well-deserved attention.
The 1/8 statue faithfully captures Black Star's first encounter with the "Sword God," Mifune early on in the series. Even as, he is surrounded by 10 of the samurai's swords the meister seems cocky as ever as he grips his demon weapon, Tsubaki Nakatsukasa in shuriken form. Needless to say, I am absolutely digging everything about this remarkable figure.
Limited to only 300 pieces, Black Star is currently on schedule for a September release with a €259 price tag. Hopefully, Tsume will add more characters from the series; I would really love to see a figure of Death the Kid.
