Muv-Luv Alternative - Yashiro Kasumi 1/6 - 4-Leaves Kotobukiya

! There is a wall of text in the beginning! If you want to see the figure + pictures and not the background information, you can scroll down a bit. ;) !

Tagged as NSFW, as this outfit is a pretty small bikini/lingerie set! Close-ups from crotch- and chest-areas will not be put in seperate spoilers.

Welcome to my review! Today I will be talking about a figure of Yashiro Kasumi ENTRY #5398 from Muv-Luv Alternative ENTRY #1182 ! This figure ITEM #166169 is made by Kotobukiya ENCYCLOPEDIA #7621 and part of their 4-Leaves line ENTRY #24435 .

I will start off with telling some more about her background.

Background

Muv-Luv Alternative is an eroge and direct follow-up from the original Muv-Luv game. It's a mecha-romantic comedy combination, that was later also adapted into manga, novels and multiple TV anime. I have to be honest here and admit I never played, read or watched any of the Muv-Luv installments. I am planning to do so, but other releases keep distracting me! From what I heard of people that watched it, the series has quite a good plot, but the anime has some really out-of-place over-the-top ecchi.

Kasumi is an side character in the original Muv-Luv games, but has a very big role in Alternative. She is an View spoilerHide spoilerartifically made human that does not show much emotions. Which explains the posing of this figure.

The reason why and how I got her

I got this figure as a part of a big trade I did with a friend a few years ago. I did not know much about her origin, but have come to this figure's database entry page a lot, as I adore her character design. There was also a point where I almost bought ITEM #4433 a few years before that trade happened. I was already attracted to her design so much and a local store kept on lowering her price. I ended up not giving in on that one.

Original art

As far as I know, there is no official moment in either the game, manga or anime where Kasumi shows up in this outfit. While researching this character and her outfit online, I also only found fanart of her in this getup. I think it was designed especially for this figure? *edit* Thanks DONKEYBLONKEY ! This outfit was designed/showned once before in a dakimakura design of the character:

Kasumi's box design is very colorful and stands out a lot to the blue and white the figure itself mainly has. The box shows some pictures and information about the figure and at the front you can get a good look at her face, because of the cut-out in the blister. As far as I know there are no bootlegs around of this figure, but it's good to take note of the small authenticity sticker in the top right corner at the front of the box.

My first impression of her was pretty good. She's quite big and the expression on her face is a bit melancholic. Also the overall color scheme of this figure is very pleasing. Even though her outfit is quite skimpy, because of her posing she is 'covered up'. The movement of her hair is also quite impressive.

Looking at all the details!

Kasumi's face is really pretty, the mouth is very subtle, a little bit open. There is a bit of blush on her cheeks and the huge eyes are nicely detailed decals.

Her face looks very good, I like how she partially covers it when you look at her from different angles. Her bangs are also shaded and sculpted nicely, with in my copy only a small leftover in one of the bangs.

Her hair is...something else, wow! The shape of the twintails is something you would only see in an VN/anime design! There is a lot of shading all-over and interesting enough the shape doesn't feel weird, I think the similarly shaped bunny ears also help in that.

The sculpt of the hair that is being pulled inside the twintails also looks really nice. The only small downside I can point out here is that I think that the ribbons are a bit low in detail and flat.

There is a big visible attachment between the bangs and the back of her hair, but it isn't too distracting for me.

A lot of things are going on here, which is why maybe they decided on skipping out the details from inside her ears! I did not even notice untill I started writing this review that her ears don't have any detail!

The big crook in the bunny ears is very fitting for her expression and body language. The ears themselves have quite simple sculpt and paint. That is one of the things that stand out with this figure: A lot of parts seem to be very simple when it comes to shading/sculpt, but they all look very clean.

From the back, you can get a better look at her outfit, which surprised me at being a lot more skimpy than I expected! We can also take a good look at her hair here, which is very square in design at the top and looks very flowy and thick at the bottom.

The lower parts of her hair look very smooth and the movement realistic.

Around her neck is some 'fluffy' fabric to go together with the bunny outfit. To be honest, I don't like it much. So far I've never seen a figure in person that had a good emulated 'fluffy' fabric in PVC. Feel free to show me examples in the comments if you ever did see one! The 'fluffy' part has a metallic shine, which makes it stand out from the other whites used in this figure.

Kasumi's 'bra', is a piece of fabric wrapped around the middle, with a small pink clasp at the back. On the side of the bra we can see a small seamline. The sculpt of the clasp and the fabric around it, is very nice. The only downside is that the pink of the clasp is not very even at all spots.

When you peek a bit below from the front, you will see the rest of her bra. Suprisingly, she has a way bigger bust size than it seems from the back. You can see quite a bit of cleavage. Ouch, wearing this must hurt after a while!

This is the best look you can get at Kasumi's crotch area, there are some seamlines from the panty, but not much other details sculpted.

Here you can also see the boots were a seperate sculpt, which is really nice as they look a lot more realistic this way.

Kasumi's boots have a very nice leather-like shine, the same leather-like effect Kotobukiya has used on multiple of their other figures, such as ITEM #91371 's coat. The bottom of the boots have quite a bit of shading.

The bunny wrist cuffs are simple white with one pink button. Over here the sculpt and the paint is perfect. There could have maybe been a little bit of shading here, but I know from experience don't judge me, Halloween bunny costume many years ago, that this kind of fabric is really stiff so it holds the shape. You don't really see any 'details' on cuffs even when a person wears these.

A bit of the bunny outfit can also be seen at the back, with a small tail that seems to be attached to her panties. The tail has the same fuzzy effect and coloring as her collar.

How the side of her panties digs into her skin looks very realistic, although I think it would feel better for Kasumi if she was wearing a size bigger...but the same I can say about her top! There is a little bit of white paint on her skin next to the panty.

Following shot is the best look you can get at her bellybutton. It's nice that they kept these details in the body, even if they are hard to see from most of the angles.

The bottom of this figure is very flat and without detail, to assure the placing of the figure.

The base is a big, fluffy piece of material. I'm not sure if I should like or dislike it. Together with the figure, the fluffy part looks amazing. I'm more worried about cleaning a part like this.

For the next part, please bear with me, as my camera had a really hard time to focus on the details.

The Points

Positive
- Nice color scheme
- Lovely expression
- Quite 'decent' for how skimpy her clothing is

Neutral
- Fluffy base

Negative
- 'Fluffy' details on the figure
- Some details skipped such as the inside of her ears and her ribbons

The Scores

Sculpting 8/10
At some parts very simple, but overall really nice.

Painting 8/10
Very neat paint with some shading at the right places, at a few spots a bit messy.

Posing 9/10
I absolutely adore the posing and the emotion this figure gives off. It's very unique.

Base 7/10
I'm not sure what to think of the base, it fits very well with the figure and is quite small, but I foresee troubles with cleaning it in the future.

Packaging 8/10
Colorful design and not much wasted space.

Enjoyment 8/10
I absolutely love this figure and was really impressed with it when I unboxed her. As a rule for downsizing my collection (not keeping figures from franchises I don't know a lot about), I should actually let go of her, but I have a hard time doing so!!

Conclusion

This is a really good figure if you like bunny figures and/or characters with melancholic expressions. Her outfit is quite skimpy and NSFW, but her posing makes her look a lot more decent. I definitely recommend this figure if it hits one (or more) of your moe-points!

Availability

This figure has dropped in price of the aftermarket...a lot! It's definitely not because of her quality, I think the problem is that a lot of people are not familiar with the character. With her original release price of ¥8,400, you can now find her for easily half of that, sometimes even less. She is definitely worth paying such prices for. I would even recommend picking her up for ¥8,400 with the current yen value. She is very nice!

And to finish it!

For those who read all this way, thank you! My next review will be about Aruze's Rosette Christopher (version 1) ITEM #11155 .

DonkeyBlonkey (11 days ago) #29434940That's because the original Muv-Luv game contains both Extra and Unlimited. So technically buying Muv-Luv gets you both games and Alternative is it's own separate download.

Ahh! Thanks for clearing that up! That makes the price of the original one much better. :)

DonkeyBlonkey (11 days ago) #29429074The animes are enjoyable to their own. (I think the Schwarzesmarken anime adaptation is better than Total Eclipse) That said, they're both fun watches.
The Extra, Unlimited, Alternative VNs have not been adapted (Although plans of it have been hinted) and I think Muv-Luv thrives from those three VNs (fyi, they need to be played in that order as Unlimited is a sequel to Extra and Alternative is the sequel to Unlimited).
As far as the bunny outfit for her, it hasn't really been in any of the games from my memory. The only thing I've seen it is a dakimakura of that same outfit of her was officially done and sold before. That said, Kasumi's style is she wears these bunny ear like things on her head (probably a headband), so it gives her usagi style.


The anime seem to be a lot lighter on material than the VN's. I checked the games out on Steam, it could be because of licenses, but in my area only the original Muv-Luv and Alternative are available (no Extra or Unlimited), strange!

A-ha! I found a picture of that daki while I was writing this review and I did not realize it was made before this figure. Seems like the daki design was inspiration for this figure. Thanks for letting me know! Will edit that in the review! I also liked Kasumi's design in the black outfit with the bunny ears, she is very cute overall. :)

I take it that the anime are not very good compared with the VN then? :) I don't play much VN nowadays anymore, but I'm definitely interested to at least look into Alternative because of Kasumi! :) By the way, do you remember if she wears this outfit in one of the games? Or is it indeed an original design for this figure?
Yeah, what you described is why I have a hard time to put her up for sale, even when I 'should' because of my rules in downsizing!
That is also one of the things I like from this figure. She looks and seems very reserved, but is quite an ecchi figure! That actually makes me appreciate the outfit even more!

DonkeyBlonkey (12 days ago) #29409412Awesome review!
The Muv-Luv VN (Extra, Unlimited, Alternative) are revered as one of the best Visual Novels ever. Whenever you make the time to play the VNs (Which are very accessible now that they are on Steam) you will not regret it. Also be prepared for an emotional rollercoaster lol.


Thank you very much! :)

victorviper (11 days ago) #29412801Most of the figures in my collection are characters that I know pretty well, but this is one of the few figures where I liked the design and concept well enough to buy the figure without really knowing anything about the character.
I concur that one of the most interesting features of the figure is Kasumi's expression and body language, as her reserved expression and rather closed body language is sort of an interesting contrast with the bunny outfit.
It's also interesting that despite the fact that her outfit is really, really skimpy, it doesn't really seem that way at a glance.
As far as figures where a "fluffy/fuzzy" effect is pulled off relatively well, ITEM #397025 comes to mind. I don't own that figure, so I can't say for sure, but the user photos make it look like the fuzzy parts of her outfit are sculpted fairly realistically.
I'll be looking forward to your review of Rosette. I wonder how many people still know Chrono Crusade these days :)?

I checked out some closeups from ITEM #397025 and the fluffy effect indeed looks a lot better on that one than over here! Especially with the longer hair. Still, it seems a bit off. Although I'm not sure if things like ITEM #1771 are the way to go instead. Hrmm. Maybe small, thin patches of fake fur are the future?

Chrono Crusade is quite cherished here locally. I still see a new Chrno+Rosette cosplayer combo every 1-2 years at a convention, so it's definitely not forgotten over here! The figures don't seem to be very popular at MFC, but I remember a lot of people being excited when I showed the Rosette figure in an loot unboxing, so who knows. :) There is not much information about the Chrono Crusade figures to be found online, so I'm excited to post about them myself too! ^^
