BRS is done so let’s move on to my favourite in this franchise, the alluring Dead Master! In the OVA she was seen clashing with BRS various times and now in the anime, she sports rocking new glasses and a slightly altered costume! (Yay?) This Figma was based off the OVA so let’s dive straight into the review!
DM comes with the standard large Figma sized box and despite the size, she seems to be packed with lesser stuff than BRS. =3
DM has a really simple design, just a black dress with leggings and heels. Everything about her is black or close to black so it does seem slightly dull. There are 2 ribbons though, at the front and back to break up this bleak monotony and also green shading on her hair so it isn’t all doom and gloom. =3
You can see how her skirt flares up and that will really aid in her posing later.
In case you haven’t realised, both her ‘wings’ and ‘horns’ are made of clear plastic which is a pretty neat touch by Max Factory. Her wings are glued into her back and it just feels rather fragile so be careful handling her there, you don’t want anything breaking off~
DM comes with stands for her skulls, the Figma stand, hand rack and her Dead Scythe. Her other expression wasn’t included for some reason but she has a licking face as well. =3
Her skulls looks really cool and has some sort of weathering done to it to make it even more realistic and battered. The jaw can be shifted as well so it’s brings some playability to the table. =3
The scythe is really heavy and her wrists can’t support it when it’s raised…at least DM can support it by herself though..unlike a certain blue-eyed loli~
The scythe has a marvellous paint job across the blade giving it the used, rough look and generally the scythe is my favourite part of this release. Look at how wickedly it curves~
The very fact that DM can balance on her scythe while licking her fingers just re-defined evil in a very cute, moe way~ Love this expression!
However when you make DM hold the scythe with both hands, it’s much easier to pose her with it and you can do some really mean stuff with that~
The skulls are fun but it just pales in comparison to Dm wielding that scythe~
Personally I think DM is a better release than BRS but I might be biased. Let me list down why exactly, first off, DM is just simpler and easier to pose with her design. Secondly her weapon can actually be posed with her without any issues and thirdly, she just looks meaner! However if you’re new to this whole BRS thing, I would recommend BRS over DM due to the fact she is the main character but if you already have BRS, DM is a worthy addition. =3
