1:8 scale Kill La Kill Ryuko Matoi Senketsu Version
From the Anime and Manga Kill La Kill, Ryuko Matoi is the lead protagonist of this crazy, over the top a brilliant anime. I could try to describe the plot but the effort may cause me to lose the fragile grip on my sanity. So I will let the Wiki do it!
Kill la Kill is set at Honnōji Academy (本能字学園 Honnōji Gakuen), a fictional high school in Tokyo Bay that is dominated by its fearsome student council, led by Satsuki Kiryūin. The council members wear special uniforms called Goku Uniforms (極制服 gokuseifuku, lit. high-quality uniform, from gokusei + seifuku) that grant them superhuman abilities, which they use to oppress the rest of the school’s students and staff. Ryūko Matoi, a student wielding half a scissor-shaped longsword, transfers to Honnōji Academy in search of the owner of the other half of the scissor blade, the person who killed her father. Defeated by the council after interrogating Satsuki over the killer’s identity and whereabouts, Ryūko comes across a sentient sailor uniform she names Senketsu, who puts himself on Ryūko. Using Senketsu’s special abilities, Ryūko stands up against Satsuki and her henchmen, the Elite Four (四天王 shitennō), to liberate Honnōji Academy from their iron grip and find out the truth behind her father’s murder.
Painted with a mix of Tamiya, Vallejo, and Alclad. Of special note is the scissor blade. This was primed in Alclad Gloss black base, chrome then candy coated with Tamiya Clear red. The were done with the supplied decals. Skin-tone is a mix of Tamiya pink, white, red and yellow custom mixed for this figure. Pastels have to be used for shading.
