Never saw a Japanese anime called Active Raid? Never mind, I will still glad to introduce the S.H.Figuarts Strike Interceptor for you.
Active Raid: Kidō Kyōshūshitsu Daihachigakari (Japanese: アクティヴレイド 機動強襲室第八係) is a Japanese anime television series. It takes place in the near future with advanced technology, particularly a system known as ACTIVE (Armored Combined Tactical Intelligence Vanguard Elements). I need to honest. Those introductions were all searched after I have bought this figure. I have neither watched nor heard this anime before. Truly, I bought it merely because I saw the kicking pose behind the box.
At that moment, there was one thing in mind, “Karate-Do”. This figure is like a robotic “karateka” (A karate practitioner). Also, it recalled my memory with the Character of Zekka (絶火) from GUNNM Last Order. He has acquired a robotic body and is a renowned Space Karate (宇宙空手) master. Similarly, this figure has fulfilled my imagination and association between Zekka and it. With those in mind, I thought that it can have many Kung Fu’s posts. Overall, it didn’t disappoint me. Notably, the figure contains numerous accessories which makes it more playful!
True karate is based on Bushido. It is a martial art and way of life that trains a practitioner to be peaceful, therefore Karate practitioners must “never be easily drawn into a fight.” However, I am happy to let this Strike Interceptor using Karate-Do (or Space Karate) to fight with Fei Long‘s Jeet Kune Do.
