I finally completed the set of OVA version figures from the Rurouni Kenshin series!

Personally, the only figure that's worth talking about here is Saito but that wouldn't be fair for the other three so...

Tomoe: The only thing I like about the Tomoe figure is her kimono and the sash that she's holding. Her sash and kimono's kind of glossy so they're really nice to look at. Her obi, on the other hand is matte, so it's a bad contrast to the kimono. Then there's her face. Well, it's not that different from the animated Tomoe: very dull. Nothing much to talk about there anymore.

Saito: Ahhh Saito. Like his animated counterpart, the Saito figure is very nicely made. He's the heaviest and tallest among all four and he really looks like he's about to do the Gatotsu at any minute. Gotta love Saito in the Shinsengumi uniform! 'Nuff said.

Kenshin: There's something quite wrong with Kenshin's lips. It's like he's trying to intimidate you with his stare, but at the same time, you can't take him seriously since he looks like he's making the ":3" face. He's in his Hitokiri Battousai get-up with half of his X-shaped scar. The scar looks pretty good though.

Okita: Okita kinda surprised me. Why? Because his eyes look like those that are printed on the bodies of caterpillars to try and scare birds away. Yep, he's bug-eyed. Well, it's not as if he wasn't big-eyed in the OVA...but the Okita figure is "bug-eyed" though his eyes are flat of course. Aside from that, he's pretty okay too, with the Shinsengumi uniform.

Not much to say about the four Rurouni Kenshin OVA Version figures since how you see them in pictures are pretty much how they look like up close. I'm still glad I was able to complete the whole set!

(Thanks to Shini for getting me Tomoe.)
