Bishoujo translates from Japanese as “Beautiful Girl” and the statues in the Bishoujo line from Kotobukiya are just that, beautiful. Some of the statues in the line are of female characters but some put a gender spin on some well-known characters from popular culture. This time around I must admit that horror never looked so pretty.
The latest entry in Kotobukiya’s Horror BISHOUJO series is the long-awaited Ash Williams from Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn! Ash’s appearance is expertly translated into the BISHOUJO style by series illustrator Shunya Yamashita.
Reflecting the violent nature of the film, Ash’s clothes are tattered, exposing her robust form. Ash stands on an exquisitely detailed base modeled after the floor of the cabin from the film, with a decomposing hand peeking out from the cellar door. The Necronomicon Ex-Mortis is detached, allowing you to display it wherever you like. The contrast between the bold, Chainsaw-Brandishing hero and the intricate details in the craftsmanship make this BISHOUJO one you won’t want to miss!
