Japanese Superheroes Getting Really, Really Effeminate

Whether it's the Power Rangers, Ultraman or Kamen Rider, male Japanese superheroes have one thing in common: they are tough and masculine. These poses aren't.

Blogger BakAnki snapped pictures of the superhero figurines doing poses that are, as he explained, "girly" or "photomodel-ish".

"In all seriousness," explained BakAnki on Figure.Fm, "it's actually harder to do a girly pose and make it look good and natural." For these figures, the joints aren't exactly designed for girly poses, making the execution that much harder.

Who said putting Ultraman on the cover of Tiger Beat was easy? It isn't. It's awesome.

    Whether it’s the Power Rangers, Ultraman or Kamen Rider, male Japanese superheroes have one thing in common: they are tough and masculine.

    Errr, since when? I mean, when you see the Power Rangers, do you really see exemplary masculinity? I surely don't.

    H-h-how could they do this?!

    Meteor.. storm.. PUNISHEEEEEER!

    Worst effeminate character is the default character in Sacrifice. He has six arms and slowly flaps them up and down as he skips along.
