iShiro Phat Company - Review8.86/10    Readers' selection (2016-06-03)

- OK. Since I need to study (a lot), and I really should go back already to writing my VN......so I decided to write a review :P
- You should study -_- You have only 2 more days, so don't waste time.
- Oh I'm sorry, do you like the new Dark Souls ?
- Yep ^_^
- And I'm sure, that you finished your homework before playing it, right ?
..........

- Anyhow.
It's been awhile, since I wrote a review so sorry if I'm out of shape :P
I also asked my sister about her opinion, cuz she was more interested in this Shiro than I was (I'll later tell why).
Black text - Me
Pink ~sigh - Alice (why pink kiddo, just why -_-)

General Appearance

She looks really good.
Yeah, I'll admit that she looks great from the distance.
At first glance it's almost perfect Shiro, and since she was made by Phat Company, it's obvious that quality is on high level.
"From the distance" so you don't like how she looks up close ?
I'll talk about this later.
So comparing Kotobukiya and Phat version which do you like better ?
General look ? Kotobukiya i guess.
I prefer Phat version, it has much better colours. They are more intense.
Yess that's true.

OK now view from the other sides.
Her hairs look, as if she woke up a moment ago.
They are little too chaotic.
Almost like yours sometimes.
-_-
But the colours, damn they are so good. Great balance between various shades.
Especially, transition from blue to pink.

I know that opinions about her are divided.
Kotobukiya VS Phat.
Now this moment is crucial - Closer view.
Let's get straight to the main point, and I mean her face.
Face from Koto is closer to the LN, and face from Phat is closer to the anime.
I honestly prefer LN version.
And I prefer version from the anime, so I like Phat version better.
They are different, and that's the fact. I feel that people who know her from LN will prefer her look from the LN, and vice versa.

It would fit, for us at least.
Similar case is with Rory Mercury LN/manga and anime versions

In this case we both prefer Rory from the anime, but I know that many people are on the opposite side.

I still think that her face is very, VERY cute, and it fits better for the general look of Phat version, but I can't get rid of this feeling that it's not 100% Shiro.
And that's why I was sceptical about her from the very start when prototype was shown.
However, from my point of view, It will be hard for other companies to do better face. She looks perfect, especially her mouth.
Her forehead is still too big, but eyes are very well made.
Whole face has a nice tone. She gives a vibe of delicacy.

Other details on the clothes, skin etc. are like always first-class. Phat is a great company, so we can be sure that even smallest things will be perfect. For this quality, we often have to endure countless delays, but i can live with that.
Also the colours are very lively.
And of course Shimapan

Unlike Shiro from Kotobukiya, there are no flaws...
Wait !
I just found one.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Curado1464881154.jpeg

Ok, there is one flaw, but it's hard to notice, so it's not a big problem.

Another tough topic are the chibis.
Which is the best one ?
Izuna, without a doubt.
Sora and Steph are also nice, and we finally have Sora.

But only as a chibi unfortunately.
Jibril on the other hand could be made better.
Izuna is perfect, you can feel her fluffiness.

Steph's mouth could be better.
Sora is also perfect like Izuna. Especially his smirking face.
Jibril on the other hand, feels awkward in few ways.
The worst part, is her smile, it's not bad in general, but her body is leaning to the ground too much. You can't see her whole mouth, and because of this her smile looks weird. You have to rotate her whole body, just to see heart in her mouth. (Wow, that sounds weird :P)
Also the disk from her head is detachable.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Curado1464881152.jpeg

Base, hmmm. If you look just at the base it looks a little dull.
And you can eat cereal inside it.
Chess theme, like it was with Kotobukiya version.

Because they played chess a few times, now it's considered as main theme i guess.

Accessories
Don't have anything to say about throne sorry :P
Better than in Game Of Thrones :P
But I'll bet that, some people may lose consoles (or however you want to call it).
I already dropped the blue one, but fortunately i found it.
Globe looks really cool. I know that some people had issues with it (it was covering her face too much), but we did not have this problem.

Regular box. Nothing fancy about it.



----------------------------------------------------

Ok that would be it.
If comparisons to the Kotobukiya version were annoying, then sorry about that but it was unavoidable. After all we have only 2 scale figures for now.

Curado (1 year ago) #11221048Nice :P
But, yeah that's the truth. Due to few reasons, we're gonna live together (and we are totally fine with it :P).


Haha! That's nice! I think it'd be nice to live with my siblings forever (at least my sister), cause I don't want all the fun times to end, haha! But oh well :p

Anyway, thanks for your time, and I hope you'll do more reviews in the future!

Also, I really liked how you did the review together!

Curado (1 year ago) #11043690Yep :)
We live together, just the two of us, and we both like manga and anime.
Usually I am the one who pays the whole price for a figure, sometimes she pay's (usually for nendoroids and figma's), and sometimes we pay fifty fifty. Regardless of option, figures and other stuff are mine and hers equally.
She rarely use her own account cuz i quote "it's too bothersome to relog every time" , unless someone sends her a message etc.


That's really nice! I'd like to do that with my sister with the few figures we both want, but I don't think it'd work, cause we think in the terms of "Who gets to keep it when one of us moves out". I know that's stupid, cause for all we know we might not care about figures then. (I'm already losing interest, I only care about Vocaloid and Fire Emblem figures, but I really just wanna buy Vocaloid merchandise (not figures), and Vocaloid CDs.)

But either way I still think it's really nice that you two can do that!

Also, I really liked how you did the review together!

Benny- (1 year ago) #11040245Do you and your sister buy figures together? Cause you both have pretty much the same stuff.

Nice review by the way!

collectorCherri (1 year ago) #10934805I agree with T-dawg. This was a nice review and I also want those chibis.
I see what you mean about the large forehead.
It is difficult to choose between the two. I agree with you that the Kotobukiya face is better, but Phat's figure has a lot of strong points. You did a good job pointing them out.
Agh, I honestly can't choose which one I like better. I see that you bought them all. That'd be my solution if I was a fan of the character. ^_^


Yeah, I'll get all of Shiro figures. I'll try to get all figures from "No Game No Life" in general, especially Izuna and Jibril (glad that they were finally announced).
Both Shiro from Koto and Phat are really great, and I like them both. But if someone asked me which one I would recommend, It would be Shrio from Kotobukiya.
(On the other hand, my sister would recommend Shiro from Phat :P)

Bearcat (1 year ago) #10937924I don't know what it is for me but her face feels a little off

I know right ? We all know that it's Shiro, but her face is not Shiro-like in 100%.
She's still cute though :P
01 year agoyowenyyoweny
Bearcat (1 year ago) #10937924After reading your review I'm actually kinda glad I didn't preorder her. Seeing owner pictures definitely feels different that the promos. I don't know what it is for me but her face feels a little off, tho the base and chibis are adorable. Overall I'll have to say I prefer the Koto one...
Very nice review. Very helpful :)


Agreed. I'm so disappointed that the actual figure is quite different from prototype.I bought her due to her hair but it looks messy for some reason. P.S. Love your review.
