Double Review! I admit I’ve been holding out a bit. I’ve had one of these figures for 5 months, surely I could have posted about it previously, but I just never managed to do it. Now that I have two Yami’s I figured it was time I got it over with. I considered posting them separately, but a double review seemed like it could be fun. But it turned out to be a lot more work than I expected.
This review has been a long time coming. I’ve set it aside for another day a few times, saving it for later always. I kept choosing to do this because she’s probably my favourite figure so far and wasn’t quite sure how to present that. Not only is she Horo, one of my favourite characters, but she’s done rather well in this figure. She’s also the smallest Horo I own so far coming in at 1/8th scale.
Another figure produced by Kotobukiya today. Seems they and Good Smile Company make the figures I like most. For those who don’t know, you’ve been under a rock, but Suzumiya Haruhi is a character in a self-titled show The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi by KyoAni. The show is based on a series of light novels by Nagaru Tanigawa and was enormously popular when it aired.
I kind of purchased this figure on a whim one day while watching Kannagi: Crazy Shrine Maidens. Nagi and Jin seemed to have a nice chemistry between them and after a few glances at pre-production images I decided to give in and purchase. Then I waited. And waited. And waited some more. 6 months of waiting she finally shipped and arrived.
A number of times I’ve been asked “why did you purchase that bitch? you don’t even like big breasts!’ and this is true. Why did I purchase Eri Sawachika? Because she was cheap. That’s not entirely the only reason, but I’d been on the fence on this figure and even went to purchase it, but later removed it from my order. Then a month later I noticed she was going for ‘only’ $30 I believe it was, which was pretty reasonable, so I purchased.
Another day another figure. I wish it were that often, actually no I don’t, that would be far too expensive. For todays figure we have Shiki Ryougi from Kara no Kyoukai. Kara no Kyoukai takes place in the same universe as Shingetsutan Tsukihime, both are by Type-Moon and have been adapted to anime.
