Nozomi Toujou 1/7 Scale (Alter)

Nozomi Toujou Figure Review

Hi guys! I recently got the Nozomi 1/7 scale figure by Alter from AmiAmi. I decided to make my first review about her, since she is so captivating and absolutely gorgeous!

(Pictures under 'spolier.' They came out a bit yellow because of the bad lighting in the area I was taking pictures >.<)

(The card/artwork she was based off of ^w^)

❤ Box/Packaging ❤
Much like all of the other girls in Alter's Love Live School Idol Festival line, her box has a large viewing window in the front and a small one on the back. The sides of the box has the promotional pictures of Nozomi with pretty sparkles, ribbons, and music notes surrounding her.

I just love the shade of purple they used to frame the box! It matches her perfectly!

(Aside from the figure, base, and blister packaging, inside the box is two paper talisman that can go between her fingers on the top hand)

❤Base❤
The base is the usual white disk with Nozomi's name and the series title printed near the front. To go along with the purple theme, some of the stars are matching with the text, while the others are a silver color.

Unfortunately I couldn't provide any pictures of her off the base, since she is difficult to remove and I am a bit scared to yank her off. From what I remember, there are two pegs to connect into her foot. One is metal and the other one is plastic.

For me, it was rather difficult to put her on the base. The pegs seemed to be a little too big for the holes at the bottom of her shoe. Luckily she slid in just fine after a few forceful pushes and looked to be in a stable condition.

❤ Pose ❤

Nozomi is making a making a somewhat circular motion with her arms and hand. Her braids seem to be flowing and follows the circular movement set out by her arms. Much like all the other girls, Nozomi's leg is lifted in the air while one foot is placed firmly on the base.

I really love the flowing motion in this figure. Everything seems to make sense, especially the way the ribbons fly around her. I also really like how her hips jut out a bit. It makes the pose seem more dynamic!

❤ Sculpt ❤

Being true to Nozomi's character design, Alter did a fantastic job on making her a bit more 'chubbier' than the other girls (She's really not chubby, but you know what I mean XD)

It's amazing how many creases and lines Nozomi has in her clothing and hair! Her chest, knees, elbows, and back have such amazing curves that makes her look almost life-like. (Alter really knows their anatomy)

The sculpt on the clothing looks super sharp and is very crisp. Even details as small as the pearls around her arm seem to be molded perfectly with no grit or awkward seam lines.

❤ Paintwork ❤

One of my favorite parts of this figure is the paint-job. All the incredible details on the ribbons, bow, shirt, and skirt is just amazing. Despite how small the details on the design were, I couldn't find one paint flaw.

The shading on her skin, boots, hair, and ruffles are absolutely perfect. The paint is darker in the creases and folds, but 'glow' brightly on the areas that poke out.

The paint on her face was astounding. The lines around her eyes are so crisp and clear and her iris is such a nice teal color. Her lips have a bit of a shine at the bottom, which makes it look like she's wearing lipstick. There's also a small blush on her face that I really like! It's super cute!

The only small flaw I found was the gold lining on the back of her shirt. It seems like there wasn't enough paint put on it (since some purple was showing) and the gold lining went over the intended line just a bit. This doesn't really bother me, since it's not that noticeable ^w^

♬ Overall ♬

She's a very beautiful figure and I have no regrets buying her. I totally recommend her for anyone that likes the character, has the money, or is a fan of her design!

Thanks for reading! Sorry for any spelling errors or grammar issues >.< Unfortunately, I think this may be my first and last review ;-;
