I was an IDOLM@STER guy growing up, and I still fully respect its superiority over Love Live. Accept no substitutes! I also acknowledge I’ve long been in the minority, so I’m always happy to see when the enduring franchise gets some attention.

But this AmiAmi rendition of Morino Rinze from SHINY COLOURS may be one of the best figs I’ve ever seen, full stop. Material science has come so far that such a detailed fig is now not only possible, but economically feasible at scale. And check out all that colour!

I’d hoped that Handa-san would have got a similar fig with him brandishing his giant calligraphy brush in that now-legendary scene from Barakamon. Clara and I hold out hope.
