I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not a fan of Shunya Yamashita. While his artworks and sculpted works are somewhat pleasing to the eye, none have ever really grabbed my attention. Except 1…

And that 1 was Mirei-san. I’m not sure if it was because of the whole executive look or the ridiculously sexy pose from the first figure (where she was sitting on a chair) but she really caught my attention. Fast forward a while and the current selection of Shunya Yamashita works are a set of original character busts. Again, somewhat pleasing but not attention grabbing, not until Mirei appeared again!!

Although she lost her legs (and her chair) the bust version captures the same qualities which made her a head turner in the first place, so I thought I’d grab one. Be warned though, she commands a pretty hefty price. This little number set me back £55 but when you take her out of the box, you understand why.
Held snuggly in a polystyrene box, it becomes pretty apparent that this isn’t the usual completed PVC figure readers often buy. Her weight also betrays her (shouldn’t really be talking like that about a lady, but hey). She’s a polystone resin figure!
