Ikki Tousen – Kan’u & Ryomou: Cast-off Swimsuit Figures by Griffon (NSFW 18+)

ikkitousen

Illustrated by Rin Sin (mangaka).

With its attractive character designs, Ikki Tousen has spawned loads of merchandise.

The protagonists of Ikki Tousen share a unique destiny with the historical figures of the classic 14th century novel: Romance of the Three Kingdoms. While the events of the Han Dynasty may seem dry, the elaborate premise of this series creates an acceptable excuse for these animated vixens to engage in clothes-shredding battle.

Figure-wise, the massive amount of Kan’u Unchou releases in existence rank up there with Saber (of the Fate/ franchise) or virtual pop-idol Hatsune Miku.

So, aside from being the latest, what makes these newer Ikki Tousen figures desirable ?For one, they appeal to diehard fans of Ryomou Shimei, who are likely 3 for 3 on the fetishistic maid/eyepatch/restraint trifecta. Also, you may be like me, and missed out on this super-cute Ryomou sculpt the first time around.

Lastly, despite the gazillion Kan’u figures available, the unique yuri factor is so compelling in this set, it would be a shame to pass up. Both figures are a part of R-Line by Griffon Enterprises.

  1. Hmm, I wonder why this franchise is so popular…😉 I have read the first three or four volumes of manga and stopped when I got tired of all the fan-service and the clothes shredding you mentioned. That written, the models do look very high quality.

  2. Nice statue! They are pretty hot and sexy, and the expressions are great!😀

  3. Statues that go together and are not on giant bases? Nice! They are really good looking. Might need to go on the ‘ol wish list.
