Black Rock Shooter ... ...

is clearly a genre that is way out of my collection. However, there's this attraction in this figure that drew me to it when I saw the pre-order for this release under Figma.

 Perhaps, it was her huge ... ...

 gun and that deadly cold killer look in the petite body.

I believe there were earlier release of this and this one here is the TV animation version. I did attempt to watch the OVA but was lost within minutes of it. Then I google it and

"Black★Rock Shooter (ブラック★ロックシューター Burakku Rokku Shūtā) is a Japanese media franchise based on characters created by illustrator Ryohei "Huke" Fuke. It revolves around its eponymous character, a mysterious black haired girl with a blazing blue eye. The original illustration inspired a song of the same name by Supercell, which gained popularity on the Nico Nico Douga website. A 50-minute original video animation based on the franchise was produced by Yutaka Yamamoto's studio Ordet, written by Nagaru Tanigawa and Shinobu Yoshioka, and directed by Shinobu Yoshioka.

The figure came packed and protected in layers and layers of plastic sheets and I have to literally tear her apart to remove them.

Upon assembly I had the answers for the purpose of those plastic sheets. The 'flesh' of the figure gets stained very easily by the black paint from the costume and this figure is not as accommodating as Drossel Charming from the earlier post.

Posseability is pretty decent and the costume is made modular which is both good and bad depending on what you want to achieve.

Figma packed two stands here because the petite little body needs some help holding up the Rock Canon (huge gun). 

This version came with an alternative head with the hood up and I think I made a mistake here with costume. See if you can spot what it is?

Here's the Rock Canon and it is indeed heavy.

The signature blue flame that's in the left eye whenever she goes into battle mode.


Until the next fem Figma attraction, this would be the last for now.
