This looks a lot sexier than I had imagined it would! It does the Cloth justice better than the short appearance it had in the last Hades arc.
I agree. This, along with the other 10th Anniversary figures, is just beautiful. Sounds like she comes with "zero" accessories, other than the special engraved stand, and of course her weapons. Looks like I'll need the special Saori Kido figure after all. Oh well, already got her preordered at the local Japanese import shop, and picked a spot on the shelf!
