——Description from Manufacturer——
Next up in the ARTFXJ line of statues (a bold new expansion designed “to bring classic Japanese characters to their fans worldwide”) is another star athlete from the popular Japanese sports anime/manga series sequel Prince of Tennis II: KURANOSUKE SHIRAISHI! Getting ready to serve at the start of his next exciting match, the captain of Shitenhoji steadies his racket with one hand while he clutches the ball in the other. The embodiment of “Perfect Tennis,” Kuranosuke wears his iconic green, yellow, and white uniform, and you can see the incredible attention to detail in the sculpt as the clothing creases and moves around his body in motion. Accurate down to the last detail, the team captain even wears the signature wrappings on his left arm that hide his secret weapon! Standing just under 8 ½ inches tall (1/8 scale) on a special stylish base decorated with the title of the series and his name, Kuranosuke was sculpted by Tatsuya Hattori. Whether you display him alone or facing off against other previously released Prince of Tennis ARTFXJ statues from Kotobukiya this Shitenhoji champ will inspire you to greatness!
