I’ve always been a huge Dead or Alive fan, I fondly remember playing the first game back when it was in the arcade and have subsequently been enjoying pretty much all of the games (I don’t have the newest one for the 3DS but I think I have all the others) . Ayane has always been my favorite character, I loved both her quick fighting style and her personality. Unfortunately there have not really been that much Ayane merchandise, this particular figure had caught my interest a few times and I think I may have even had it preordered at one point but somehow I never ended up getting it. I found it this past year at Anime Boston on sale for 50% off ($40) so I finally took the plunge.
I love that the figure is of her in her default outfit, it really attracted me to it because there are not many decent figures of her wearing this outfit. My complaint is with the pose which is a tad odd, thankfully she is adequate support so she hasn’t become a leaner (at least yet).
One other complaint related to the pose, this figure ends up taking up a lot space on a shelf especially with how overcrowded some of my shelves are that is a definite downer but I managed to find space for her eventually.
The sculpt is actually quite nice, especially for a Kotobukiya figure
