A year ago we put together the first roundup of 3D anime miniatures we found on the internet. Since then, our marketplace got stocked with 6 more 3D printer anime figures that are worth to be showcased in a separate blog post.
Anime is the Japanese term for animation. That’s why it is widely associated with Japanese animated media in particular.
