SHII ARISUGAWA from Kotobukiya
Shii Arisugawa, released by Kotobukiya, is a damn fine recreation of Shunya Yamashita’s designs. She (or Shii – hahaha..ha…. sorry) is a 1/7 scale PVC figure, and comes packaged with her sword, a pink mobile phone and glasses.
Shii is one of my favourite Shunya figure – scrap that – one of my fav out of my whole figure collection. I still remember seeing her in a hobby shop, months before I started collecting myself, and I couldn’t get her out of my mind. Returning to the store months later, I was disappointed to find out it was sold out (can’t blame them!) – this lead me onto a searching hunt, which also introduced me to several other figures, thus triggering the domino affect.
I ended up buying Shii from a seller on eBay, second hand. It was in very good condition, but I still wished I’d bought her new now (“no other guy can touch her! NO ONE!!!”). Lame jokes aside, enjoy the pictures of Shii!
space – doh! you caught me!
