It’s not only one of Chun-Li her win quotes in Street Fighter Alpha but it also reflects my view on Kotobukiya’s first entry in the Street Fighter Bishoujo line; I expected better…

It’s a shame really because when I heard/read that they were going to make Street Fighter bishoujo’s, I couldn’t wait. I love their Bishoujo line and adding SF to it definitely isn’t a bad move. But when I saw this, I was disappointed…

I don’t like the face, it’s too tranquil or almost happy looking for this pose she’s pulling of. I’d prefer her with a more focused or even angrier looking face. Also, what annoys me most, are her hands. They’re almost positioned as an afterthought, one fist and one open ‘look-at-me-I’m-so-feminine’ open palm. I know that it’s what the original art looks like, but still, I don’t like it…

Even though I don’t like it, we’ll probably get her anyway simply because Ingis wants the complete game-related bishoujo line. Ah well, maybe she’ll be better in person.
