Tachibana Kanate from “Angel Beats!”. At the world of afterlife, acted as an “Angel(Tenshi)” to fight against the main characters…however she is the real heroine of the story!! Seems “Angel Beats!” didn’t have much figure products, and this is the very first PVC product of Tenshi.
This 1:8 scale figure is release from Goodsmile Company, whereas original sculpture was done by 3DCG, using 3D printer to “print” the object, and finally fix and touch-up by sculpture masters. By this new process, figure could be deliver in a faster and cheaper manner, and parts like feather and guns could be sculpted in details.
Digital production of original sculpture was widely used by Plamo (esp Gunpla) companies. However its seems seldom being use to sculpt human character figures. There still being questioned for making those soft touch on girl figures, however seems goodsmile company are willing to challenge on new methodology and delivered high quality figures in relatively low price to comsumers.
By the way “Angel Beats!” was a good animation to me, and I wish to watch again once have time and chance. Well, “Angel is just like, angel!” ^^
