Preview: Touhou Project - Remilia & Flandre Scarlet Complete Figures by Aquamarine

-----Based on our Japanese blog-----

Meshi here, ready to serve up another heaping helping of figure previews. Its unique, highly stylized designs have elevated Touhou Project beyond just another series--it's a cultural movement and a genre unto itself. Disclaimer: ZUN isn't paying me for the endorsement, scout's honor. Touhou is just that amazing. With that out of the way, let's dig in!

Touhou Project - Remilia Scarlet Complete Figure [Aquamarine]

What balance--structurally and compositionally! Normally you'd fall over if you bent that far back on your tiptoes. Then again Remilia is anything but normal.

Touhou girls are known for their abundance of frills and lace, and this one is no exception. Even under all that fluff this Remilia sculpt still gives you a rare look at her lithe body line. Bravo!

Like all great figures her expression varies with the viewing angle. One thing that doesn't change, however, is her youthful charm and vampiric allure.

These blue wings really pop out at you! With the fluttering skirt and ribbons I am going to venture that she isn't on her tiptoes at all and is in fact floating in the air.

Thanks Remilia! Now on to...

Touhou Project - Flandre Scarlet Complete Figure [Aquamarine]

After the vibrant design, the next thing that catches your eye is Flan's trademark weapon and those mysterious wings. In her left hand is a jewel and flames. Fans of the games will know what comes next...

One cool thing about Flan is that each artist interprets her wings a bit differently. This time around she is looking extra ornamental with fancy orange latches holding the jewels in place!

The vibe of the character is really brought to life with the use of clear parts in her flame and jewels. Like Remilia she also has the Touhou frilly fashion but owns the look in her special way.

Her slender frame looks like it would snap in two with even the lightest touch. It's that contrast with her actual destructive power that fans can't get enough of! I get nervous just looking at her with weapon in hand.

Of course they look great on their own but these sisters were truly made to be displayed together. Toy with the angles and you can get wildly different but equally stunning scenes!
