From Kotobukiya to the world! Kotobukiya’s ARTFX J series is a bold expansion of Kotobukiya’s ARTFX series that strives to bring popular Japanese characters to their fans throughout the world! The next character to join the ARTFX J lineup is the main character of Hakyu Hoshin Engi, Taikobo. Beginning in 2018, Hakyu Hoshin Engi is a new anime series based on Hoshin Engi, a popular manga by Ryu Fujisaki that ran in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1996‐2000.
Taikobo stands with his whip at the ready, with a look of determination in his eyes as he prepares to fight to the death in the Great Sennin World War. Taikobo’s appearance from the anime is faithfully recreated by Kotobukiya’s expert craftsmen down to the finest detail, from his shoes and hands to the tails of his tunic that billow out dramatically around him. The figure’s base can be connected with the bases for the upcoming ARTFX J Yozen and Fugen Shinjin statues in order to fully recreate the atmosphere of this fresh adaptation of the timeless Hoshin Engi series!
