  1. I don’t really like thius Shuffle character, but this long hair version is reallu cute. I prefer character with long hair, thus, I prefer this adaptation at the first. The face expression is adorable, and she seems nice (a kotobukiya figure ^^). Thank for this share !

    1. I tend to lean towards characters with long hair as well. If one were to look at my collection I think they’d see the majority of my figures have long hair. However in this instance I believe short haired Asa to be the superior version. She’s much cuter I think that way.

  2. Lovely review once again. It’s clear, concise, and informative — I really need to learn from your example, haha.

    Believe it or not, I have never noticed her bum until you pointed it out in this review, despite having seen her in the bargain bin of the local anime store multiple times (the short haired version, that is). Now that you pointed it out, I can’t blame you for having for having a one-track mind, since it’s practically the focal point of the figure. I Wonder how I missed it before, hrmmm…

    By the way, would you be interested in trading links/banners? I have placed this site on the my blogroll and links page because I genuinely like it, so there’s no pressure to reciprocate. If you are interested, shoot me an email.

    1. Haha I never really thought of myself as clear and concise, I’m glad someone does! Thanks!

      I too wonder how you missed it. Perhaps other reviewers are more tasteful with their photography than I?

      Sure I’ll throw a banner up. It’s lookin’ a bit lopsided with 3 on one side and 2 on the other, I need another to balance it out 😉

  3. Wow talk about coincidence…Was contemplating getting one of these tonight, but wasn’t sure about whether I liked short or long hair better and you go right ahead and post a nice review for me Aka. ~_^

    Defiantly think the short hair version is the winner of the two.

    1. Glad I could be of assistance! I agree with you, the short haired version is definitely the one to get of the two. I chose wrong 😦 I really wish I could remember what I was thinking a year ago…

  4. Ah, another Asa-senpai fan!

    This is the first time I’ve seen the long hair version in detail. I think you’re right that the pose really isn’t fitting for the long hair effect. It’s cute, but not really fitting. Plus, she technically wasn’t sporting long hair during the scene in question so it’s not show accurate. 😛

    It’s interesting that you call Asa’s paint job “mediocre”; I thought it was one of Kotobukiya’s better attempts.

    Oh, and she has a great bum indeed. 😉

    1. A good Kotobukiya paint job seems to be at best decent, they’re never good or great like Alter or GSC. Unless you’re talking about their 1/6th scale Eva figures. So mediocre describes this figure quite well, I don’t think the paint job stands out as anything else.

      I think I’ve only ever heard of one person who preferred the long hair version, and it’s Leonia above. Everyone else I think has preferred the short version, myself included.

      I keep considering purchasing the short haired version and having both. But I feel that’s only for obsessive people and I’m only obsessive about one character and her name’s not Asa.

      1. I didn’t like Alters. They made her look almost chubby or something. I suppose that’s not the right word, but she looks heavier than she should. Or is it just me?
