Simple and elegant would be the best way to describe this recently released figure by Kotobukiya. Emi Kizaki is a character from Kurogane no Linebarrels. This figure is the first one to be released from Kurogane no Linebarrels amd there will be others coming along in the future, however, I am not planning to get the others ^^.
One thing that I really like from this figure is her natural/dynamic pose and expression. It looks like as if a gust of wind blows gently from the side. Her black shirt + skirt just makes her even more attractive in addition to holding a sword.
As for sculpt and painting, I only noticed very minor imperfections and it may be just a manufacture defect in my case since it is impossible to manufacture every figure exactly the same. Overall, Kotobukiya did an awesome job on this one and really live up to my expectation.
