I used to be a big Katsura Masakazu fan and Shadow Lady was my favorite and still like it so much now. I started become his fan when he started the manga Video Girl Ai (I was in um…grade 7??). I loved his drawing and story so much so I started to collect his manga. But until around 1994 when he started DNA², I started to lose interest on it. When he started I”s, I found the story was not interesting at all so I only bought the first two volumes of the manga and then I gave up. I know so many people like I”s but I really don’t know why I don’t like it at all. =(

Anyway here are the I”s figures by Bandai! The sculpture work and paint job look pretty nice on both Akiba Itsuki and Yushizuki Iori. But don’t get so excited guys, these are just prototype. This is Bandai you know, their PVC figure quality aren’t really that great. Most likely they will ruin them in the final stage just like their other PVC figures. Btw, where are those two Code Geass figures that they said will be available in Dec 2008??
