Figure Review: Shuraki vol. 5 – Rizfis (Rize) Luttiva Mente

The first round of the explosively popular Shuraki multimedia figure series concludes with the appearance of Rize, Italian Shuraki and member of the mysterious White Raven organization. Armed with a massive halberd and clad in a diaphanous blue gown, her design is surely a match for any of her predecessors – but how does she compare in figure form? Read on for the final installment in our Shuraki review series (until the second batch is announced):

Figure Review: Shuraki vol. 4 – Nida (Needa) Schuetlich

Volume four in the wildly popular series of Shuraki multimedia figures is in some respects a return to more familiar territory, as design duty for Nida was entrusted to the ubiquitous Yamashita Shunya. His designs have been adapted in figure form by just about every major PVC manufacturer in the past few years, but as the first Yamashita offering from Goodsmile there was curiosity regarding how the maker would handle the adaptation compared to those with longer track records. As we’ve come to expect with this series the result is very favorable indeed:

Figure News: Shuraki vol. 5 Rize preorder “unsealed” tonight

The fifth and final volume of the Shuraki multimedia figure series goes up for preorder tonight (December 17th) at midnight! Rizefis Rutetiiva Mente (aka. Rize) was designed by Yano Takumi, voiced by Shintani Ryouko, and sculpted by Kaiya Hajime of circle Acetone. Like vols. 2-4 she will be priced at 6,800 yen retail, with release scheduled for April of next year; with reissues already announced for the first two volumes it’s expected that the rabid preorder frenzy that has plagued her predecessors will abate somewhat for Rize, but the next 24 hours will tell for sure… (no more)

Figure Review: Goodsmile’s Shuraki vol. 2 – Riu (Liu) Meifeng

The multimedia figure series that earlier this year redefined the scope of the figure otaku feeding frenzy is back in its second installment! Shuraki vol. 2 brings the incredibly cute Riu (Liu) Meifeng to the fore, in yet another dynamite combination of character design, sculpting and voice acting talent. How does she compare to the series’ first installment, Akatsuki Mishiro? I’d say incredibly well, but pictures speak louder than words:

Figure Review: Goodsmile’s Shuraki vol. 1 – Mishiro Akatsuki

The cause of preorder frenzy and subsequent despair for those unable to hit the refresh button in the five seconds they were available, the first entry in the much-hyped Shuraki line finally hit store shelves (albeit very briefly) last week. I was able to snag a copy, and I have to say the franchise’s first multimedia figure offering is a very nice item indeed. She’s not without a couple of flaws however, which we’ll address in the review below:
