Out of all the cool things in Yakuza, naturally when I thought of making a plush I went straight to a UFO Catcher prize. I don’t make human amigurumi so that did cut out a lot of my options… But of course I was still gonna land on the bird thingy. Especially after the Doll Girl substories in 0.

I also did some very rigorous, very scientific math to figure out a rough to scale size for Bun-chan. In that I took a screenshot of Kiryu standing beside a UFO Catcher and drew some lines to compare his height with Bun-chan’s height. I drew a line over Kiryu, labelled it 6ft, then shrunk it down in different increments until I got it to Bun-chan’s height. So, in universe, Bun-chan is about 6 inches tall.

The best part of all this? Despite my best efforts, my Bun-chan design doesn’t come out to 6 inches. More like 5. But it’s close enough that I’ll just call it “nearly life size” and move on. Other than that I think the design is surprisingly accurate!
