Kantai Collection KanColle 1/8 Scale Shimakaze Prize Figure
















Kantai Collection from popular browser game to anime had been pretty successful lately. In fact, many had been talking about it even before the anime was announced.I watched the anime because of the high popularity however I find the anime ain't fantastic like the anime suited the female more. Shimakaze (translated as Island breeze) was like a mascot even though she just briefly appeared in the anime. Based on Japanese WWII, Destroyer Shimakaze, this fleet girl character was highly decorated for its speed and proclaimed fastest in the fleet. Her personality interpreted as happy-go-lucky Shimakaze in a rather playful like in this pose skidding away. 

The sculpt had also shown Shimakaze's beautiful slender body. Some nice find on the figure would be the anchor as her hairpin, the adorable Rensouhou-chan artillery cannon with float and the rudder wedge on heels. Kantai Collection KanColle Shimakaze SEGA Prize figure ready for deployment! Released in April 2015 as a 1/8 scale, 19cm fixed posed figure, even under premium SEGA Prize figure, this is probably the most affordable Shimakaze figure. I would say the face sculpt is faithful to the anime as I was kind of disappointment when I first collected my pre-ordered, as well as the quality control QC to noticed some minor paint flaws.

I find this review informative...

this is a beautiful figure, no doubt, i like specially the dynamic pose and detailed sculpt !!!... the suit is quite revealing and if not for the skinny shape of the character, it would be rather vulgar... uhmmm, an anime series based on a videogame is not a good bet as far as i know, the visual language and narrative in both cases is different and that’s why you feel inconsistencies, when the videogame plot is "accurately translated" to anime... other than that, well, heavy battleship’s armament on sweet and delicate girls, looks for me a bit "out of place and cumbersome" if you know what i mean, LOL !!!... =D

I haven't exactly played the game and somehow I like the opening song and not so much of the anime. On the other hand, my daughter luv watching it and watched it several times. Shimakaze is probably featured more in the game as her popularity preceded other female protagonists. The pose is bewitching. Maybe it's why I bought.
