I love Thunderbolt Fantasy!! It is really weird and unique and cool. It has extremely beautiful and intricate character designs and a very classic and exciting samurai story. There are a lot of plot twists and it never gets boring. The characters are all very unique and interesting. I am a fan of ball joint dolls and the characters give a similar appearance to that. It has a suprising amount of action, special effects, and gore, which makes it even cooler. All the men are extremely beautiful with long hair. Puppets invoke a creepy yet cute feeling that I love.
I wish I could have dolls based on the characters!
