Interest One Piece Hancock & Salome 'chibi-arts' Figures Coming Soon
posted on 2013-02-13 03:00 EST
Bandai is currently accepting preorders for the newest entries in their “chibi-arts” series of super-deformed anime figures. The two-piece figure set features One Piece character Boa Hancock and her snake Salome.
The set includes a re-released version of the original chibi-arts Hancock figure, in addition to a new figure of her companion Salome. The Hancock figure includes three changeable face plates for displaying different emotions, as well as separate bottom halves to change her from a standing to sitting pose.
The set retails for 3,990 yen (about US$43). It will be released in March

If this film causes more permanent damage than most Pokémon outings, that's wholly the fault of its main character, Keldeo.
On the whole, The Battle for Doldrey is a mixed bag of strengths and weaknesses. While that may be true of most things, there are few places where those lines are so clearly drawn as in this film.
When the set ends, it's on a note of combined hope and sadness that drives us onto the next volume as surely as the mounting disasters of last volume drove us to this one.
You may not get anything substantial from this brief OVA, but it's a lot of fun to watch regardless.
The story may have progressed, but what makes this series great hasn't changed: it's still one of the most convincingly heartfelt and emotional of all anime action series.
