Thank you, Go Nagai

Shitty picture in my poorly lit room. I didn't realize I had like 60 dollars sitting there until it was too late. Conspicuous consumption or an innocent mistake? YOU DECIDE. Ice Princess Yukiko-Hime from Go Nagai's Dororon Enma-kun. I guess the figure was intentionally sculpted to represent the anime revamp Dororon Enma-kun Meeramera, but whatever; I needed it. She looks a bit younger in the face but--er...not in the body, compared to the original manga. Of course since it's Nagai and Yukiko strips/loses her kimono in every panel the clothes can be taken off in typical Japanese PVC figures of animated hotties fashion. Damn thing essentially came nude in the box and made me feel like a voyeur peeking through her cellophane window packaging. I guess my morality and integrity were reinstated when I put the clothes properly on her after completely opening the packaging. The clothes themselves are probably my only grievance with the figure; putting them correctly on without breaking--I did once--the fragile plastic was about as nerve wrecking as The Wages of Fear, or less dramatically, Nicolas cage putting the green poison ball/sphere clusters inside those missiles in The Rock. Or whatever. It was scary and tense and slightly perverted. Overall I'm extremely happy with it and can't stop oogling at it.

I love you, Go Nagai.
