iYuzuriha Inori, Figma 1438.5/10

Greetings once again, everyone! :D
Time for another review! This one would probably classify as a mini review, but I wanted to show off my latest Figma. USPS was unusually prompt in delivering this to me because no sooner did I pay for shipping in HLJ's Private Warehouse, than she arrives a mere 3 days later. Speedy both for USPS and with EMS shipping! Have had her for the past few days, but only today did I open up the box to have a look at her.

Yuzuriha Inori, Figma 143

Ta-da!
(Sorry in advance about crappish picture quality!)

Behold Inori, one of the main characters in the anime Guilty Crown. This anime reads like a who's who of the industry: character design by redjuice, music from the composer who's worked on the Sengoku Basara and Blue Exorcist animes, Production IG is involved, Square Enix is serializing the manga, you name it. This anime seems to have some strongly polarizing elements: people either really love or really hate this anime. I've yet to meet anyone in between in their opinion of this series.

When I first ordered this figma, I had only seen a few episodes of the series myself. Having watched more, I'm reeeally glad that they didn't make a figma of the main character, Shu. As her release date came closer, I found myself getting more excited about having ordered her. Once I got her, I was glad I did as she's very petite and lovely.

I digress. Therefore, without further ado, here's the review!

Ah. Ye olde Figma Box. So normal, so pedestrian. The usual pics of what the Figma inside can do, the average box design. *yawn*

Move along, folks. Nothing to see here! XD

Packaging: 7

Sculpting/Posing/Painting/Assorted loot

You know, you can really get spoiled with the Figma line: most of them come with all sorts of insane accessories/loot. Inori? Notso much. What she comes with:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Neko_Oni1349847414.jpeg

Just her extra hands, two other faceplates, two pistols...and Fu-nell. Her bitty bot is a fun one though, as he's posable. More pics of this guy later.

Her sculpting floored me: she's very delicate and lovely.

As far as posing goes, since her hip decorations are removeable, there's not much she can't do. She can even sit!!!!!

Some more pics of her beautiful faceplates!

Can't see it well here, but she's got some barrettes that are partially hidden, but that are also painted.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Neko_Oni1349847589.jpeg

As you can also see, her painting is quite good also. Overall, they didn't do too bad. One minor issue on mine, which is why she isn't getting a perfect score from me.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Neko_Oni1349846984.jpeg

Yeeah. I'm convicing myself that GSC is getting all its QC bugs out before Madokami releases. This is what I'm telling myself, anyway.

Sculpting: 10
Painting: 8
Posing: 10

Enjoyment

Perhaps it was the paint smear that lessened my overall enjoyment, but even with this flaw, she's still one of my most beautiful Figmas. She's fantastic to pose and her faces are both well suited to her character as well as done well. Very happy I ordered her! So are a few others...

I look forward to taking many more pictures of her. ^_^

Enjoyment:9

This wasn't one of my more exciting reviews, so as a reward, here is a bonus adventure!

The Tachikoma realized that there's a wannabe in their midst...

Fu-nell was hearing none of that and was happy that it brought a toy along for just such an occasion.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/Neko_Oni1349846988.jpeg

Finally! Respect! XD

Thanks for checking this out! Hope you enjoyed it. ^_^

    Shu should make a contract with Kyuubey in exchange for a pair of balls.

    Why does it seem that all GC figures are of Inori?

meteorstormed (1 year ago) #1172372Haven't seen the show (still debating on it, got a huge backlog as it is), but she's got a great design at least. Nice review.

The show's not bad, (has some of the best music that I've heard in an anime recently) and the character designs are great. The main character Shu had me wanting to throw things at my computer in disgust. The fact that his personality changes damn near every episode did not make me a fan. >_>

silentxangel (1 year ago) #1171795Haha! I love the omake part at the ending! I would be so outraged with that paint splatter. Red in black? Can't get any more obvious than that. If I were you, I'd ask GSC or a replacement. You might get a full body out of it if the leg is not detachable. Nice review!

Considering that she was delayed a month, wasn't happy with the fact that she came in flawed. I've heard that GSC's customer service is good so I think that I'll contact them tomorrow. Now that I'm looking on here, I'm a little sad to hear that others have arrived flawed as well. I hope that GSC isn't slipping...

TyjosAzari (1 year ago) #1172663Inori's a favorite figma of mine for sure, love her...can't wait for the GSC Inori Figure to join her! Too bad they didn't include her void weapon with her.....and maybe some attachment to her chest to show it coming out....

I would have liked to have seen that too: she really didn't come with much.

Shu should make a contract with Kyuubey in exchange for a pair of balls.

This. This. This.

But, Inori was awesome and I like her character design. I really like the flare of her orange and red outfit, it's quite pretty.
The figma looks great as a whole, and I like how she comes with the eyes closed face. She looks to be a nice asset to your other figma
Great review ^.^

OMG...What The Hell ? GSC / MF...why you make Inori with that horible flaw ?

View spoilerHide spoilerI want to see Inori's other form from the latter half of the series when she was defending Shu against all the mechs on that large street. Inori is a bundle of depression though. She is suffering to look at. So happy to have snagged her when I had the chance.

Haven't seen Guilty Crown yet, but Inori's peaked my curiousity. She's quite lovely. The details on this figure are beautiful <except for that boo-boo..ugh. Time to get a hold of GSC.> Thanks for sharing this beauty with us!
