DOAX 2: DEAD OR ALIVE XTREME 2 - KASUMI ANI*STATUE

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! The XBOX 360 sequel to DOA Xtreme takes the players well beyond combat and volleyball. In Dead or Alive Xtreme 2: Venus on the Beach you can enjoy additional beach activities, such as personal watercraft races, gambling, and more! All the while, the women of DOA look as hot as can be in a variety of stunning beach attire, making use of the series' revolutionary physics engine that provides outstanding anatomical movement!

A female ninja and member of the Mugen Tenshin Ninja Clan, the rebellious KASUMI abandoned her training and destiny to compete in the Dead or Alive tournament. She secretly joined the event to confront Raidou, the man who crippled her brother. Kasumi wins the first tournament when she kills Raidou, and then goes on to participate in each subsequent event.

The beautiful runaway ninja kneels seductively at the edge of a swimming pool, resting on one hand and one knee while she dips a foot into the crystal clear water below her. Kasumi comes with two sexy bikinis (called “Azami” and “Himawari!”) that you can exchange by swapping out certain parts. Both outfits show off the beauty's amazing body, and along with the removable “water” of the poolside base give you great display options! Kasumi is approximately 7 ½ inches tall (in 1/6th scale along with the other Venus on the Beach Ani*Statues) and was sculpted by Yuzo.

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! The beautiful women of Dead or Alive are part of a whole new world in the XBOX 360 sequel to DOA Xtreme, going well beyond combat and volleyball.

All the while, the women of DOA look as hot as can be in a variety of stunning beach attire, making use of the series' revolutionary physics engine that provides outstanding anatomical movement!

Former DOA tournament winner and recurring character in the Ninja Gaiden series of games, AYANE sheds her ninja costume for something a bit more appropriate for beach life.

You will have a tough time deciding which of these display options looks the best on your shelf!

Sculpted by Yuzo, Ayane stands almost 10 inches tall (in 1/6 scale with the other Venus on the Beach Ani*Statues). Posed as she stretches her right leg at the ocean, the beauty comes with a unique diorama base.

HOUKAGO PLAY ~ KANOJO (GIRLFRIEND) ANI*STATUE

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Hōkago Play is a 4 koma (panel) manga series that tells the story of a high school student and his girlfriend. They both enjoy playing and talking about video games, but have a much harder time discussing their feelings for each other. KANOJO (“girlfriend”) is a perfect example of the “Tsundere” archetype, violently teasing her boyfriend while hiding her true feelings for him.

The striking Kanojo is a perfect representation of her character design from the manga series. Stark and minimalist in appearance, the girl is tall and extremely thin, with fantastically long legs. She wears a traditional school uniform and trademark black tights, with plenty of sculpted detail in the wrinkle lines, buttons, necktie, and flowing skirt. Her stylized face is dominated by her large yellow eyes. Striking a pose from the manga cover, Kanojo stands with her hands behind her while her beautiful jet black hair twists around her in long tendrils. Originally released as a garage kit sculpted by Goumoto-dou's Shinpei Yokoshima at Wonder Festival 2009, it is now available as a fully colored statue! Kanojo stands 10 ½ inches tall (1/7th scale), and is constructed of high-quality pvc plastic.

SHINING FORCE FEATHER ~ ALFIN UMBRIO ANI*STATUE

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Another member of the Japanese “Shining” series of games, Shining Force Feather is a turn-based tactical role-playing game from Flight-Plan and Sega available exclusively on the Nintendo DS. The game features character designs by Japan's renowned illustrator Ito-Noizi (best known for his work on Haruhi Suzumiya and Shakugan no Shana). The first Shining Force Feather character brought to life is ALFIN UMBRIO, a curious young artificial life form.

No one knows exactly why, but Alfin Umbrio is remarkably lively and curious for an artificial intelligence. Her inquisitive nature is captured perfectly in this new Ani*Statue. The pretty girl sits atop a rocky pillar base, reaching out to touch something that has caught her attention. Alfin wears a remarkably detailed dress with flowing lifelike “fabric,” lots of frills, and a matching headband, shoes, and stockings. The black dress and accessories are decorated with purple highlights, and intricately sculpted purple roses adorn her chest, arms, and shoes. Alfin's long purple hair spreads out behind her in dynamic and natural movement, and her soft face really captures the character's sweet spirit. Sculpted by Shou Kojima, Alfin is approximately 7 ½ inches tall (1/8th scale) atop her pillar base and is constructed of high-quality pvc plastic.

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! The ToHeart2 Another Days line of Ani*Statues is joining forces with the “Four Leaves” series of iconic Japanese character archetypes to present the latest special version of the ultra-popular childhood friend of Konomi and Takaki, TAMAKI KOUSAKA “PANIC!” While the previous incarnations have brought you Tamaki both as a sweet girl and an evil seductress, she now appears in a very compromising position with both her bikini top and bottoms coming undone!
