There were so many good anime in the last anime season. I really didn’t have time to watch time all, so I dropped couple anime and Phantom was one of them. I only watched 2 episodes and I think it’s really good. I will pick it up again once I have more free time to spare.
As for this figure, you may think that she doesn’t really looks like Ein. Well, it is because the sculptor of is Toda Satoshi ( 戸田聡 ). He is a sculptor that has a really strong style of his own. I guess most of you should remember the 1/8 Saber from Gift, yes, that was his work. I have 3 of his figures and like them a lot. You can check out his works here in his figure circle homepage. But on the other hand, I know a lot of people dislike his works coz of his style. Well, to each their own. =P
——Description from Manufacturer——
Her codename: ‘Phantom’.
Phantom was originally the debut PC game from the popular ‘Nitroplus’, but as a commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the game, a new TV anime was created and is currently being broadcast! The assassin heroine from the series, ‘Ein’, is now on her way to the world of figures.
With knowledge of exactly what fans are looking for, Toda Satoshi has sculpted the figure with a dark, realistic ambiance. Ein holds her trusty Colt Python in hand, as she stands right in the center of combat, even the finest details down to each hair and small ripples in her skirt carefully sculpted – creating a figure full of delight to any fan of the series.
