Ten Characters That Should Get The Bishoujo Treatment

I’ve never made it a secret how much I love Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo Collection. Combining the stylized Bishoujo (or “pretty girl”) design, courtesy of Japan’s leading Bishoujo artist Shunya Yamashita with classic pin-up girl sensibility, Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo collection offers a unique take on the top ladies of pop culture.
