KyotoAnimation is going to release the Tainaka Ritsu ( 田井中 律 ) 1/8 PVC figure from the manga/anime “K-ON!” ( けいおん! ). Will be released in September 2010. Around 203mm tall, 8,000 yen (taxed in). Kyoani Shop exclusive.

Based on the custome in the K-ON! season one ending, KyotoAnimation bring us their second K-ON! figure, Tainaka Ritsu. Maybe it’s just the photo, this Ritsu figure doesn’t look so good to me. As I said it couple times already, black is one of the hardest colors to paint because you can’t just add highlight or shading on it like the other colors. You need to use other colors (e.g. blue, brown, red) to bring out the depth of the black. This Ritsu figure shows us a really bad example on how not to paint black. It looks just completely flat black to me, no shading no highlight no nothing. Well maybe it’s just the bad quality of the photos tho.

Well anyway, the per-order of this Ritsu is opened like 5hrs ago. For those who want to get her, you can order her at Kyoani Shop here.
