Aozaki Aoko ~Blue Dress Ver~
Ichiban Kuji Premium, B Prize Figure (Banpresto)
See this post and more at Keripo's Corner

A lottery prize figure from Banpresto for TYPE-MOON's 10th Anniversary event. Also non-canon but still pretty elegant. Not as many glaring QC issues as Saber, but also a lot less interesting.

I met a mysterious lady out on the field. She kicked me. So I called her Sensei.

This is just the first of a long series of post-unboxing, backlogged TYPE-MOON figure reviews. After moving to my new place, I set up a nice corner of the room for figure photography and took a bunch of review-style photo sets of figures as I re-unboxed them. Most of these figures are second hand, B/B grade, so keep that in mind when going through the photos.

On to the skirt. There's the skirt and there's a dressy part that goes on top the skirt. There are two waist parts to accommodate the two different combos (dress or no dress).

With Saber, the Ichiban Kuji A prize

Although I haven't played Mahouyo yet, I know her as Sensei in Tsukihime, Miss Blue in Mahouyo, the sister of Touko Aoko from Kara no Kyoukai, and the magic missile launcher of Melty Blood. But most importantly, her role in Carnival Phantasm as the mastermind behind Plan Shonen-H ;3

I can't get over her face.
It's so derpy, but kind of endearing as well?
Many thanks for the review.

Hatchuu (4 years ago) #1856016She's really gorgeous I think, despite the flaws. Do you think she's worth the current market price?
Her current market price is 4k, which is reasonable as far as figures go. That said, I'm really not a fan of her face (it looks too derpface), so I'd only recommend it if you plan on also going for the Saber Ichiban Kuji prize (also a weird face) as a set.

I really like her, but I paid way too much for her. 8000 JPY when it first released and when the USD/JPY rate was still weak. I paid more than double what shes worth now.
