Hatsune Miku meets a kawaii pink ensemble in this totally adorable figure. Cherry blossoms are timeless, yet this figure feels fresh and jubilant. The red cherry accents on her pigtails are the perfect pop of color.

The Hatsune Miku Sakura figures were so adored when they released that there’s been a yearly version ever since. You’ll see some minor updates and improvements from year to year, but these anime figurines will always have the trademark color of the sakura and Hatsune Miku’s elaborate hairstyle.

Berserker of Black – Fate/Apocrypha, Taito

It’s amazing what people are able to sculpt and produce using PVC, and this figure is proof of that. The dynamics of the Berserker of Black’s delicate back veil and pillowy gown make it seem like anything but plastic. The gold details of the scepter are eyecatching.

Narmaya – Granblue Fantasy, Taito

Taito Granblue Fantasy: Narmaya Figure

  • Cute and collectible
  • New and sealed inside retail packaging
  • Limited availability
  • Approx. Size: 7"L x 5.5"W x 7"H

Like her character, this Narmaya figure is sweet but deadly. It’s a bit more on the risque side but not so over the top that you’d be embarrassed to display it. She comes with a long katana blade that is incredibly detailed on both the blade and the handle.

Shimakaze Love Kanmusume, Taito, Kantai Collection

Sale
Taito Kantai Collection: Shimakaze Love...

  • Very limited Quantity
  • Minor assembly required
  • Each sold separately
  • Approx. Size: 3.1"L x 2.7"W x 7"H

You can’t have Mitsuha without her body-switching counterpart Taki, and this figure makes sure of that! If you’re looking to start a collection, this is a great pick.

Even though these two figures glance curiously at each other, there is a lot shared between them. One of the best details? The stands reflect where each of the characters lives–Taki in the city and Mitsuha in the country.

Shanks – One Piece World, Banpresto Colosseum Vol. 2

Banpresto One Piece World Figure...
  • The highly praised Banpresto world...
  • Minor assembly required
  • For ages 15+
  • Officially licensed product bears the...
  • Authentic Bandai import collection...

If you’re not familiar with Banpresto’s Colosseum, this is how it works: only the top artists around the world are invited to an exclusive competition where they are tasked with sculpting the ultimate figure.

A winner is crowned as champion, and the best submissions are minted in production. This figure is a result of that battle of the artists, and you can clearly see the craftsmanship involved with it.

Shanks is perfectly sculpted, from his muscles to his casual clothes and stance. However, behind him is an incredibly rendered cape that offsets the figure.

Even if you’re not a huge One Piece fan, this figure is an amazing addition to your collection. The colors alone (including the gold detailing on the pants) make this a worthwhile buy.

Monkey D. Luffy – Stampede Movie – One Piece, Banpresto

Banpresto Onepiece Stampede Movie King...
  • Officially licensed product
  • Base stand included
  • From the popular series one piece...
  • Luffy
  • Anime

The realism of this figure of Luffy is unparalleled in the world of anime figures. You can see every fiber in his straw hat and even the veins in his muscles.

This figure specifically hails from the Stampede movie, and Banpresto did an impeccable job of replicating Luffy’s fighting stance. It comes with a discreet black stand to support Luffy in his wild lunge. This figure is a great choice to commemorate the protagonist of One Piece.

Boa Hancock – Diamond Ship – One Piece, Banpresto

Banpresto One Piece Flag Diamond Ship...
  • New Banpresto figure line, Flag Diamond...
  • Minor assembly required
  • Age grade 15+
  • Officially licensed product bears the...
  • Authentic Bandai Import Collection...

This figure is popular for a lot of reasons– but let’s talk about the craftmanship! Boa Hancock may appear relatively straightforward in her stance and outfit, but creating a figure like this out of PVC is challenging. 

Fortunately, Banpresto rose to the occasion. Don’t bother with bootleg companies. You’ll be met with mold seams, mismatched color, and fuzzy detailing.

Banpresto did a perfect job on the number of textures in Boa’s outfit, including her boots, shirt, and belt.

Boundman – Stampede Movie – One Piece

Sale
Banpresto One Piece King of Artist The...
  • King of Artist figure line from...
  • Minor assembly required
  • For ages 15+
  • Officially licensed product bears the...
  • Authentic Bandai Import Collection...

One of the neatest things to appreciate with this figure is the stand is built-in, disguised by the clouds billowing around Luffy. There’s some minor assembly required for this figure, but it’s not much at all and quite on par with the few steps required for any figure to get it looking its best right out of the box.

This piece makes great for a standalone display because it truly feels like a part of the environment, and the eye is never distracted by a bulky stand.

Roronoa Zoro – The Grandline Men – One PieceBanpresto, Vol. 2

One Piece The Grandline Men Wanokuni...
  • Official Product By Little Buddy /...
  • Cute and Collectible
  • Makes a great gift
  • Limited Availability

It’s always good to have an antagonist in your collection, and Zoro is perfect for that. Of course, the most important thing to Zoro is his blade, which is a big feature of this figurine. With his trademark grimace, he holds his sword behind his head, his hand at his sheath.

Nami – Treasure Cruise World – One Piece, Banpresto

Banpresto Onepiece Treasure Cruise World...
  • Base stand included
  • Official licensed product

This Nami figurine is fun, flirtatious, and perfect as the first piece in a beginner’s collection. Her stand is built into the base of her boots, and minimal assembly is required.

The colors are bold and striking as well. They really captured Nami’s hair color and even took careful consideration to make sure her nails are painted. That’s an indicator of a well-made figure.

The Art of Collecting Art

These figures represent some of the most adored (or feared) characters in anime history. What’s your favorite style of anime? Do you prefer action-adventure sagas, like One Piece?

Or do you enjoy the kawaii, fashion-forward world of the Vocaloids, as headlined by Hatsune Miku?

Even if you’re not a major fan of anime or consider yourself a diehard fan, you’ll appreciate the quality and level of detail in these figures. Not only will you treasure them for years to come, but they’ll even grow in value.

If there is a figure you have your eye on, it’s best to act quickly on it. Anime figures are known to sell out within minutes and often take preorders.

One of the best parts about collecting anime figurines is the hunt and thrill of the chase!

Fortunately, these fan favorites are readily available online and just waiting for you to start (or add to) your collection.

Don’t forget to share with your friends!
