Figma: Kagura Tsuchimiya of Ga Rei Zero

My latest arrival, well, actually i got last week.. been bz with assignments and stuff... but hey.. this blogs isn't bout my shitty life... so, lets get this over with shall we...

I'm not too clear bout the difference of Ga Rei manga and Ga Rei: Zero anime, but from what i managed to look up, seems like Ga Rei Zero anime is like a prelude to the Ga Rei manga.. so, this figma follows closely to the anime.. I'll try and start reading on the manga and maybe get some details on the difference... but i'd be a lot easier if sumbody can just come up and tell me.. haha.. any takers?

According to Good smile company;

Ga-Rei, release! The young girl with the harsh fate of a spirit hunter.

  • Chain parts are included and can be attached to 'Michael #12' allowing for all sorts of action scenes.

Just another school girl chick with a blade...
Its a cute red phone, stuck to the hand...
Damn, can't get this pic to lay down...
come with 3 faces, phone in hand, Micheal 12 and sheath, the double sided blade (used to kill Yomi, oops.. spoiler.. ^.^)
Theres a hand to di the chanting thingy.. also a hand to hold the sheath of Micheal 12, or hang the chain.. oh, the chain are.. like ... chains? careful not the break it ya.. felt quite fragile...
The back of the packing can be used as a cover for the d:stage, complete with labels and logo.. now, to get a stage... hmm...
The blade is Micheal the 12, since Micheal the 13 only got one episode screen time, like final episode and got smashed to bits.. oopss.. spoilers.. hahaha...

So, enjoy the anime Ga Rei Zero.. maybe i'd do a review soon.. but i warn u first, its got a lot of blood and slicing happening in the anime... try episode one to see if you can handle it.. Enjoy!!

Kamen Rider Decade : Episode 1

Kamen Rider Decade (仮面ライダーディケイド, Kamen Raidā Dikeido?, Masked Rider DCD, Masked Rider Decade) is the title of the first of the 2009 editions of the long-running Kamen Rider Series of tokusatsu dramas. Decade, as its title suggests, is the tenth of the Heisei Rider Series, having begun with Kamen Rider Kuuga in 2000. It began broadcast the week following the finale of Kamen Rider Kiva and is featured in Super Hero Time alongside the 2009 edition of the Super Sentai Series, Samurai Sentai Shinkenger. The series ties in with the arcade game Kamen Rider Battle: Ganbaride, with Kamen Riders Decade and Diend using cards resembling those used in the game to transform and access various weapons. The catchphrase for the series is "Destroy everything, connect everything." (全てを破壊し、全てを繋げ, Subete o hakaishi, subete o tsunage?). (Source: Wikipedia)

Masahiro Inoue, who has portrayed Keigo Atobe in the Prince of Tennis musicals, has been cast in the lead role for Decade as Tsukasa Kadoya/Kamen Rider Decade. Also involved is Kanna Mori as Natsumi Hikari, and Renji Ishibashi as Natsumi's grandfather Eijiro Hikari.[1] Another member of the cast is Tatsuhito Okuda as the mysterious Narutaki. The World of Kamen Rider Kuuga, as well as most of the other Rider Worlds, sport several characters that have been renamed and cast with different actors. Ryouta Murai has been cast as Yusuke Onodera who is the series' version of Kuuga. (Source: Wikipedia)

All together there are 31 episodes to the series, with 2 movies made, "Cho Den o & Kamen Rider Decade" and "Kamen Rider: All Riders vs Great Shocker". Or somthing like that.

Funny thing too, that Kamen Rider Decade has a face book too, Kamen Rider Decade Facebook Page. More details on Kamen Rider Decade can be found on Tv-asahi . But take note because its in Japanese. SHF Figurarts has also produced Decade, which should be able soon. Checkout the links to pre-order or order when available respectively.

The bike looks ok.. but the fin on the back look wrong.. actually decade color also too pinkish.. but change is good, though i dont agree with pink.. but maybe they ran out of color to make it different and more outstanding than the rest of the Kamen Riders..
