Frilly Figure Review#06: Black Rock Shooter Black Blade Ver.

Welcome again to another figure review. It's a relatively new figure & I made a stupid mistake and didn't pre-order her. I ended up going through play-asia and paying around $120. 2 days later I found out AmiAmi restocked on her for half that price. Regardless..I believe she is worth the hefty price tag. Sorry if this review comes out a bit choppy, I'm kind of drunk haha.

Final Thoughts/Review:

  • Sculpt: 10/10
  • Painting: 10/10
  • Base: 7/10
  • Packaging: 8/10
  • Enjoyment: 9/10
  • Total Score: 44/50
This figure really is well made. The design,paint and pose all work very well together. I wish they used the same base as the first version but it's just a little thing. I watched the was okay but the delicious hanazawa kana voice made it watchable.  You don't have to be a fan of the animation in order to appreciate this cool character design. So if you like anorexic girls with leather jackets and blue hadouken eyesockets, this is your new religion.

Oh nice. I would have picked this up if I knew the price dropped. Now it's sold out ;_;

Nice, but I don't like the scar much. I don't like my Miku derivatives to be hurt.

You're so lucky! They have this for sale at a local shop for 180$. Feels bad.
