Sword + kimono = pure win

I have never seen Kara no Kyoukai. Until today, the name Ryougi Shiki has never passed within my hearing.

  5. […] pre-ordered this figure when it was first announced in August. Back then I wrote: I have never seen Kara no Kyoukai. Until today, the name Ryougi Shiki has never passed within my […]
