Anime Studio Arms is bankrupt?

If you’re a fan Ikki Tousen, Elfen Lied, and Queen’s Blade, I got some unfortunate news for you. According to Anime News Network, the anime studio behind these anime, Arms, has declared bankruptcy. Tokyo Shoko Research (TSR) reported this week that Arms filed for  special liquidation on July 22, after deciding on that course of action through a shareholder meeting on May 31.

According to ANN, Arms was found in 1996 and it focused on outside animation work from Pierrot and also did anime collaboration from adult anime companies such as Pink Pineapple and Green Bunny. They started their own anime series in 2004 with the anime Mezzo. The company would later be involved with other anime series such as mentioned from earlier as well as Aesthetic of a Rogue Hero, Samurai Girls and Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid. Their recent anime series they worked on was Ikki Tousen: Western Wolves in 2019. In 2017, they changed their studio’s name from Arms to Common Sense, but they still kept the trademark name for Arms.

Here is what I got June:

54. Deadpool (Supper Hero)

As a late birthday gift, my best friend Ezra got me this festive Deadpool figure. This figure has Deadpool holding a turkey fest. I am not sure if he’s celebrating Thanksgiving or Christmas, but Deadpool will happily treat his friends with this delicious turkey.

55. Mysterio from Spider-Man: Far From Home (Walmart exclusive Glow in the Dark)

Thank God Walmart brought back this figure when it was on stock. This figure is pretty rare because this figure is just like my Perfect Cell figure and it can glow in the dark. Just like in the movie of Spider-Man: Far From Home, Mysterio uses his illusion special effects and shows up as spooky and mysterious. Mysterio is a master of illusions and this guy trick thinking he is strong as an Avenger. If you want this figure, you’re going have to keep your eyes peeled in sites such as Walmart or even eBay.

This is my collection from June. I have a total of 55 figures.
