Long time not seen any IKKI TOUSEN figure on mukyaa.com, don't you think? Well, this serious lack is filled today with some pictures of another great ALTER release, representing the proud Kanu, main character in second anime season « Dragon Destiny ». And now the thrid titled « Great Guardians » has started, it is a good occasion to plunge once again in the flying-skirts mood of IKKI TOUSEN.
Kanu is a charismatic girl in this universe. First because of how she fights, with that legendary and invincible Blue Dragon Crescent Blade. And the way she appeared in the first season lets the spectator knows immediately she is a tough lady, and even with her status of minor opponent, she became very popular.
I am not going to chatter about the origine, but I recommend to read the tones of information on wikipedia about the Romance of the Three Kingdoms and famous names who inspired IKKI TOUSEN story and characters, starting from Kanu's, Guan Yu.
Then she takes the lead in Dragon Destiny, wich is focused on Seito Gakuen and the rise of Ryuubi. And consequently, there were more fantastic scenes featuring Kanu. Remember, during the fight in the river, when she get up again like a mermaid with a wonderful hair flow… ahhh~ love ♥
And with those intense moments, it is always possible to have a peek at her most significant trait: the reverse-cleavage.
That's why Kanu is great ^^
Can't wait to see her in « action » in Great Guardians, as much as Ryofu who is back from nowhere - wasn't she dead!? - for more ecchi scene. I won't complain about that, love Ryofu too ^^
*uh-huh* well, shall I stop fantasizing? ^^;
Kanu figurine, from ALTER
Mirano has sculpted one of the first Kanu figurine based on Dragon Destiny's character design, easy to recognised thanks to the typical crossed-hair-fringe. The shapes of the face and the eyes are also widely different, but one thing is sure, the modelling is quasi perfect!
The main attraction is definitely the flow of her exaggeratedly long hair, rolling around herself. This is somehow magic, isn't it?
And at last, a very short skirt blown up enough to reveal everything under. That is the Kanu I saw in the anime show, the Kanu I like, and I am completely seduced by the result.
So I have high expectations about Chou’un Shiryuu figurine I have also ordered. See you next month for that ^^
I just have one reproach regarding her spear, the Blue Dragon Crescent Blade. It does not look as impressive as it could have and a bigger blade would have been perfect I think. But that is just a detail.
Mmmhh in fact I have a second reproach, easy to find by looking at the pictures. Or rather by looking at what is not on the pictures : the base. Yeah, one more time, that damn base. It is large. It takes a lot of place for nothing. And it is ugly. Just a plain transparent light blue disc. No inscriptions excepted copyrights and where it was made… *sigh*
A good thing Kanu can stand without it though. Hope I won't be blamed for not showing it ^^
End of complaining, end of blablabla.
Above, just a off-centered picture to show the spear's guard.
Below, Kanu's legendary reverse-cleavage. No very marked on this figure though ^^;
