Ryomou Shimei Figma




Ryomou Shimei is one of the main characters of the manga/anime series Ikkitousen. This particular version is from Ikkitousen: Great Guardians. I picked her up from Hobby Search for 2,261 Yen, and she's still available right now if you're interested. I never got into the anime much at first because of the overly excessive fan service, but lately I've decided to start watching, and it's not that bad after all. So far, Ryomou is my favorite character, for various reasons.






First off, Ryomou comes with 3 different faces, 10 hands, and a pair of handcuffs. The handcuffs are a pretty cool accessory but they are pretty thin and stretchy so I'd be careful with them. The hands switch out smoothly with no hassle at all, and no worry of breaking them. I especially like her gripping hands, the ones that look like they're for choking. Almost her entire french maid dress is soft PVC, which is pretty nice if you ask me. Her oppai are even squishy because the dress is merely raised in that area. I guess the only complaint with her would be she doesn't have the battle damage option for her clothes like Kanu does, if that's really something to complain about. I don't mind it a bit actually, because her dress looks great the way it is, with no ugly lines in it. Her maid cap comes off with her front hair piece, and you'll notice she even has a small ahoge in the back of her hair. So, if you're an Ikkitousen fan, like bad-ass women who know how to fight, or you just have a maid fetish, you might consider picking up this Figma.







Well then, I couldn't resist having Ryomou and Kanu Unchou fight it out, so I decided to take a few more pictures with the two of them. Of course, you can see Figma Kanu's review as well if you haven't already. But, since this is Mou-chan's review, I couldn't let her lose the battle.

As a fellow Ryomou figma owner, I agree wholeheartedly with this review!

...except I would have preferred having a battle damaged clothing option; the tits were really the only thing in Ikki Tousen that kept me going.

I'd take Ryomou over Kanu any day. Prefer her outfit for one. But I wouldn't get either really lol. Looks nice though.

As for Saimoe, Kagami won the Japanese Saimoe. Apparantly there are like, loads of different ones for different countries. Not for the UK though I bet. Not enough hardcore fans to get a decent number of votes I bet...
This be the international Saimoe!! I dunno who won last years ISML....
Anyways, glad you liked my choices. Love your new Chi figure btw, so cute.

Most of her dress is soft? That's interesting and allows betting posing I guess, but squishable chest is a bit o_o to me

Ryomou is my favorite Ikki Tousen Character aswell and its one of my Guilty Pleasures to watch Ikki Tousen^^

You should try reading the manga (stay away from the tokyopop translation).Its alot better than the anime

Like the nice white and blue shininess that comes off the images.

Did your Kanu or Ryomou's joints ever become loose?
