Griffon’s Iku Nagae Disappoints Oarfish and Humans Alike

 Iku Nagae from “Touhou Project”

The Dragon Palace’s oarfish messenger youkai, Iku Nagae, receives the obligatory Griffon Touhou figure release. However, true to Griffon’s inconsistent tradition, Nagae is one figure whose looks have not been translated well into PVC form. Her trademark oarfish shawl lacks any dynamic movement and majestic flow and even her facial sculpt leaves something to be desired compared to the original drawing from the “Scarlet Weather Rhapsody” game below…

Griffon’s Nagae will be released this October 2011 for the unbelievable price of 7600 yen.
