Chibi-Arts is a figure series produced by Bandai since late 2010.
Following Good Smile Company's Nendoroid principles, the series is about rendering iconic characters from various successful Japanese series into SD / chibi version of their self. Figures are about 10 cm tall and are sold with several interchangeable parts and accessories, allowing to reproduce character striking poses.
SD for super deformed / chibi (dwarf in Japanese) are terms originally designing a drawing style where characters are rendered with a head-body ratio of 1:3. This style is focused on the character facial expressions and are used to obtain cute versions, following the moe 萌 trend appealing to the female population.
