What a big surprise from Megahouse! In the 15th anniversary of the Ruoruni Kenshin anime, Megahouse is bringing us this Himura Kenshin PVC figure!!! You know I usually don’t post male figure, but Kenshin is (was?) really popular that I don’t think I can skip him!

There are two version available, the standard version and the limited version. The standard version Kenshin comes with his signature red clothes that we’re really familiar with. The limited version Kenshin comes with the blue clothes that he used to wear when he was still in his killer era. Personally I like the old blue clothes one a lot! But I guess it is just me. =P

The manga was finished more than 10 years ago, so I think some of you might not know about it. But Rurouni Kenshin was one of the manga I like the most back then when I was in college. I think I still have the whole manga set somewhere in my bookselves. This figure really brings back memories. =D
