This figure is among the most original, based on the main female character in Gosick. The character’s aesthetic in the show is pulled from the 1800s as it is, but this figure adds more style to the already stylish character design.

Neon Genesis Evangelion is one of the most popular anime series ever, so it makes complete sense that the marketing and merchandise would be over-the-top in many cases. These figures are life-size 1/1 scale renditions of the main characters Rei, Kaworu, and Asuka.
