Animation studio Tatsumaki Studio are preparing for the coming year with major releases from Shueisha’s “Weekly Shonen Jump” stars including Tsubasa Ozara (Captain Tsubasa) and Asta (Black Clover.)
The Hong Kong-based studio focuses on developing and selling limited statue forms in resin and PVC based on Japanese animations, games and comics for fans. It consists of a group of collectors that understands the importance of quality details and unique touches in their figures as they are being part of their own collection.
Speaking exclusively to Arab News Japan, Founder and CEO of Tatsumaki Studio Diego Neves said: “This is part of our concept for the Shonen Stars line, affordable items with a way better quality than the PVC statues available on the market. We also want to create several characters for the line, but naturally people need to support this idea.”
Neves said that for Captain Tsubasa they were planning to release Benji Wakabayashi next. “During Tsubasa Ozara’s development we discussed how to give him a very active pose and I believe we succeeded,” he added.
“Asta in my opinion is the most successful design so far. This statue really stands out as a resin, and people were really thinking this would be much more expensive,” Neves explained. “We also want to release more characters for this line, but we are still deciding which one.”
The founder said their first articulated figure, Yusuke Urameshi from the famous anime series Yu Yu Hakusho, will be released this month.
“We expect to release Gon x Pitou, the second resin from the Hunter x Hunter line in between December 2020 and January 2021,” he added.
