This figurine fell victim to my random “I want that” … ness… while the wife and I were in Japan. We didn’t buy it in Japan we pre-ordered it while we were there… yes, even while in japan we are so obsessed with figurines that we still placed orders for them online… it was pretty random actually.
To be honest, I know nothing more of this figurine and character then she is from a hentai. Which means I have probably seen it at some point and just didn’t remember it. Honestly, there is a good chance that might be what made it stand out to me, some sort of… subliminal messaging that made me purchase it. Or, it could be the cute pink hair, it was probably the hair.
As the title implies, this figurine is made by Alter, I’m a fan of most of their work so I didn’t hesitate to get this one. The figurine was sculpted by Aketagawa Noboru who has also done my TACO!! girl from Saki.
This figurine is done super well, normally when you take a good close inspection of a figurine its pretty easy to see some flaws that are in … well, in a lot of figurines out there. Random color bleeds, mould lines sloppy, detail work looking poor. This figurine almost looks like it was made by our fellow deities at Good Smile. It really is nice to see work of this qualify put out by Alter.
I did already mention that I love her hair, I kinda have a thing for that color of hair its just… sexy and awesome. I love her animated pose as well, I liked it enough to still purchase it even though it has one point of contact on the base which will most likely lead to the figurine leaning in the next few years. I loved her MC Hammer pillow like pants and most of all I love the colors.
Her face is small and vibrant which is how I think most figurines should be. Her… … weapon? I think looks pretty awesome as well. Yeah this is one of those rarer times when I’m grabbing just a random 1 off figurine we bought and was not disappointed with it. The sad thing is I really do not know much about it at all, I do tend to always try to go into a review with an open and clear mind.
I suppose the only things that bother me about it is as I stated before, the one point of contact on the base which will cause it to lean. As well the base itself I’m not totally sold on. It would have been nice to see something a little bit more extravagant as I’m a fan of all those flashy big bases.
All in all, I’d have to rate this based on the painting and sculpting and give it a 90%. Fans of this show would probably like this, however I would like to of seen this be a little bit cast off, not a fan of that style of panties either but that’s a whole other can of worms.
For a random purchase figurine of ours, I cannot think a better AMV to put in here except for a AMV with randomness… so here you are.
