Believe it or not, that’s the male star of the hit ninja series.
Recently, we took a look at a batch of amazing photos from the upcoming Naruto stage play, which had the ninja of the hit anime and manga looking grittily realistic. Now, it’s time to go in the completely opposite direction, with a scrubbed and shiny figure that’s based on fetishized fantasies which themselves exist within a work of fiction.
Compared to many of its contemporaries, the Naruto franchise isn’t particularly heavy on sexy fan service, so if you only follow the series casually you might not immediately recognize this devilish temptress. However, rest assured that if you’ve ever watched even a single Naruto episode, you’ve seen this character before, because that’s none other than leading man Naruto Uzumaki.
Among the many tricks ninja in the Naruto world have up their sleeves is the ability to transform, changing their appearance into that of other people or objects. And since ninja combat is more about outwitting your opponent than beating him straight-up, during the course of his training and adventures Naruto occasionally employs the tactic of changing into a busty, scantily-clad woman, a tactic he calls the Oiroke no Jutsu, or “Sexy Technique.”
▼ The whiskers should be a dead giveaway that this is really Naruto in disguise, but the beauty of the gambit is how few male adversaries will actually bother to look at his face.
The approximately 22-centimeter (8.7-inch) figure is priced at 12,528 yen (US$117) and is currently available here from online retailer Premium Bandai, with shipping scheduled for late September.
Also, if you’re hoping to combine the Iroke no Jutsu with the Bunshin no Jutsu/Clone Technique, please be advised that orders are limited to three units per customer.
