Nendoroid BRS TV Anime Ver Review

Today’s review is on Nendoroid Black Rock Shooter TV Anime ver! I got her last summer, but never got to writing a review!

Black★Rock.Shooter.(Character).full.146889Black★Rock Shooter (ブラック★ロックシューター Burakku Rokku Shūtā?) is a Japanese media franchisebased on characters created by illustrator Ryohei Huke. It revolves around its eponymous character, a mysterious black haired girl with a blazing blue eye. The original illustration inspired a song of the same name by Supercell, which gained popularity on the Nico Nico Douga website. A 50-minute original video animationbased on the franchise was produced by Yutaka Yamamoto‘s studio Ordet, written by Nagaru Tanigawa and Shinobu Yoshioka, and directed by Shinobu Yoshioka. A “Pilot Edition” was released on DVD and Blu-ray Discin September 2009, before the full version was released on DVDs bundled with select magazines from July 24, 2010, subtitled in seven languages, followed by a retail release on December 17, 2010. An eight-episode anime television series aired on Fuji TV‘s Noitamina programming block between February 2 and March 22, 2012. The franchise has also spawned several manga series and a video game for the PlayStation Portabletitled Black Rock Shooter: The Game, each set in their own universe.

Now then, let’s begin the review!

Black Rock Shooter has been shrunk down to Nendoroid form! Her iconic starred jacket and short pants are painted neatly for such a small figure.

IMG_2885 IMG_2887The dark blue of her hair is complimented by a light blue gradient. I wish they did this more often on Figmas, but sadly they don’t.

IMG_2889Shooter’s two twin tails are on ball joints and can be rotated as you please (her hair joint was sticking out a bit when I took the picture, you can’t see most of the joint when you push it in)

IMG_2895BRS’s clothing is covered in a nice silver metallic paint, which shines in light!

IMG_2897On to her accessories! She comes with two faces, a stoic and emotionless face.

IMG_2899And an angry face for combat! Mine has a black smudge on it that rubbed off from another accessory…

IMG_2901This accessory. BRS’s hood that shows up in the anime is also included. She also comes with two different hoods that you put under he head. One that has a full hood that hands over the back, and the one she’s currently using right now, only the bottom part of the hood.

IMG_2905The blue flame that makes BRS, BRS is included! It attaches to the back of her fringe with a little knob. So you can take it off if you don’t want it on.

IMG_2911She comes with her Black Blade that slips into her special hand. There really isn’t anything unique about the sword, since it’s completely black.

IMG_2915This one is my personal favorite. It has a fantastic metal look to it, and is really large too!

IMG_2916And her final weapon, a blurry picture! (The sun suddenly moved from where I was taking the pictures…) Actually, this is her Rock Cannon! Similar to the previous weapon it has a metal look to it.

IMG_2919BRS comes with an assortment of legs!

_To Sum it Up_

Black Rock Shooter TV Anime Ver. is a great looking and adorable figure, but is not recommended for someone new to nendoroids. She’s wonderful to take pictures of, although her parts and stands fit loosely and are difficult to put on.

Sort of Recommended

Thanks for reading! I’ll have a review of Figma Ultimate Madoka up soon!
