Full disclosure: The header image does not reflect my immediate reaction to or subsequent thoughts on this bit of news. I just thought it would be really, really funny!

We barely made it out of the Mass Effect debacle of sex and pent-up frustration, but now Kotobukiya is pointing its anime-ization ray beam at the Street Fighter franchise. This weeaboo nonsense must be stopped! It is too... oh... wait a tick! Street Fighter is already Japanese! Doy! False alarm, peeps!

The Bishoujo line focuses exclusively on females, so definitely expect Chun-Li and Cammy to make an appearance. I wonder what curveballs Kotobukiya plans on hurling, though. I'm holding out for Rainbow Mika, myself!

Speaking of curveballs, Kotobukiya also announced a sculpt of Jaina Solo, Han Solo's daughter from the Star Wars Expanded Universe. How much more obscure can you get!?
