Great review! I was thoroughly happy with this figure when I got it; her subtle loveliness comes out so much better in person. I'm really excited to get my hands on the rest of the line in the coming months.

And don't worry about the wobble; unless she falls from a pretty decent height, or makes hard impact with something, she's not going to break or lean. Alter figures are as solid as they come!

A very nice review. Youre enthousiasme is the biggest compliment you can give to Alter. Alter does not only make a figure but gives it a character. And this figure is no exception on that rule. Comes to mind when i read about a small paint flaw: Alter is actually really close to perfection. It is indeed very hard to find a flaw on a figure made by Alter.

Look very nice and detailed. Do many new Alter figures get that nice soft skin paint? (I have Shinobu with that paint)

I like how enthusiastic this review was, a pleasure to read! No idea why anybody would complain about the design, I'm no Hanayo fan but I do really like this Alter figure of her and I wish the one they did of Nico (my best girl) was as nice to look at cause I'm just not a fan of that design...

That was really nice to read! It's great to see fellow collectors get so enthusiastic about their purchase, and the figure looks beautiful indeed!

Thanks for the review. mine is still in her box waiting to make her grand appearance on my shelves. I remember a lot of people were anxious when the prototype was announced, but I had faith Alter would deliver the merchandise. This figure got a wonderful idolish smile and that alone sells it. ;-) + a non-scholl sailor fuku, but that's a given!

hadalisii (1 month ago) #20134424Seeing how utterly happy you are with your best girl i tend to get more and more excited to finally get my hands on Kotori from this Alter-holy-grail-perfect-line. AHHHH reading your reaction made me realize how much i love figure-collecting as a hobby! It brings joy to the world!

Kotori is definitely one of my best purchase in recent memories: lovely, well-designed and carefully assembled. Can't ask for more!

This was a nice read; great review! I know some people initially had complaints about her (I read many about her face), but she's honestly my second favorite of this line after Kotori. Here's hoping the March one is just as well done!

LovelyIdiot (1 month ago) #20116798You have a very charming and witty way of writing, and it really made this review all the more fun to read! You also encapsulated how I felt about getting my first Alter figure perfectly. Thank you for posting this!

Ahhh thank you so much for such a kind comment! I was so delighted and overwhelmed when I got Hanayo, I really wanted to share my feelings, and I'm so glad I could do it in an entertaining way!

I hope you find Kotori to be as amazing as I found Hanayo! I really like that they chose that art for Kotori. When the results of the poll for who would win a Christmas UR came out, I was really happy that Kotori's theme won, it was the best of the lot imo and I love her figure form. Ah, this hobby is really the best <3

Damn straight! These feelings inside me ... are they for Hanayo or for Alter? I want to enjoy more Alter figures - but slowly, so that I can have the time to slowly cherish each one before meeting the next.

Yeah man, that's what you get from Alter! They are, imo, the best figure maker around (followed closely by GSC and Max Factory). I'm glad you so happy with her! Nice review, too!

I don't have much interest in the figure itself, but this review was delightfully written~!

Nice review!
And yeah to be honest her face was one of the things
that just threw a lot of people off including myself..
it just looked weird from different angles that
was not looking straight at you~
I think Alter realized their mistake and that's why
they're making another Rin and Hanayo ~ but I can't
disagree with the fact that her outfit is beautiful!
