Canaan - The Land of Hope

by 01:32
Honestly, I was at the edge of my seat when I heard Type-moon was starting another series project. As far as I have seen, these guys have yet to fail me in my expectations...

One the most awesome animes this summer, Canaan, by Type-moon started with a very explosive and action packed beginning. No qualms there as it was definitely the type of show I'm into.

Set in Shanghai, China, a woman who goes by the name of Canaan, jumps over rooftops while firing bullets with deadly accuracy, in a batle with a group know as the "Snakes". At the same time, she starts to discover herself when she ran into an long friend, Osawa Maria whom she had met in the past. Despite her poker face and age, she is different from all of us due to her deadly ability, Synesthesia. She is able to tell apart from foe and ally by judging them from the "colour" they emit from her blood red eyes...

So far, the storyline has been very intriguing, from the alleys of China, to foreign dialogues in the show, to American bombers and deadly viruses. A definite must-watch for all those who have interest in 'power' animes.

Gracing our figure stores in Dec 2009, the Nendoroid Canaan is ready for pre-order (which I have already done) for die-hard fans. Dressed in her infamous red and cargo pants with her signature pistol is an awesome set up for a mysterious character. Quite detailed for a nendoroid as the leg parts can move in a ball-socket joint.

Usual for Nendoroids, they come with different faces and items that your figure can pose with. Her we have smile on her face while eating a candy bar.

She comes with her knapsack slung at the back of her. Although there is much to say about her hip size, I shall refrain from commenting...lol

Now, is it just me, or is Type-moon obsessed with eye-related powers? Think about it...

  • Tohno Shiki : Mystic Eyes of Death Perception
  • Ryougi Shiki : Mystic Eyes of Death Perception (Eyes of Death)
  • Arcueid Brunestud : Vampire Eyes?

But whatever. Still think eye powers are freaking AWESOME~! Now it's Synesthesia~!
Gotta love this pose!

Now, for those who can't stand looking at a chibi version all day or you simply have money flowing out of you pockets, I suggest you take a look at the 1/7 PVC Canaan!

Certainly a masterpiece in my eyes. Heavy intricate detailing has gone into this figure. Bravo to ALTER~! Trebien~!

The base itself looks amazing, adapting the harsh environments Canaan is exposed to. Those stones look pretty real to me~! What has really impressed me is the flow of the figure.

As you can see, she in a mobile/slanting position, meaning she is in combat when this pose was planned. Movement of hair, clothing and other movable stuff on Canaan must be adjusted to the pose. And I think ALTER did a splendid job on that part.

The body and hair are awesome, with the figure arching the body along with the flow of her hair.
The cape, which is from the bonus item from the game I think, also is worthy of noting with intricate detailing there.

The fabrics and accessory on Canaan complements the entire figure, creating a free-flowing style for the it. Even the pendent around her neck is adjusted to the angle of the body.

The only shame here is that she does not come with her signature bloody-eye look...

Not sure if pre-order are still up, but don't hesitate at this chance~! Remember to pre-order your today~! If you would like to find our more of these figures, head over to the following links;
