1/6 Kanna Kamui from Dragon Maid figure by Pulchra1/6 Kanna Kamui from Dragon Maid figure by Pulchra

solluxcaptorsolluxcaptor4 months agoReview
Another Kanna review because I just can't get enough of this cute dragon girl <3 I'm really happy to own these two figures of her and I'm still hoping for more to come, maybe even a Nendoroid would be the cutest ;-; Anyway! Today I'm going to be reviewing the 1/6 Kanna Kamui figure from Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid by Pulchra.

Here's a video where you can see me unboxing the figure and giving a showcase from all angles:

I really recommend to watch it if you want to see more shots of the figure and view it in motion!


First off, I'll start by reviewing the box:

This figure has a very simple but effective box. It shares motifs with the show, is simple but pleasant to look at and most importantly it keeps the figure safe. After my disaster with the swimsuit Kanna and her terrible packaging, I'm just happy that this packaging kept her safe.

I don't have much to say about the packaging but I'm happy with it! It's very clean and nice to look at, plus you can see the cute Kanna peering out of the front and you just want to set her free.

Let's show the figure in full!

I'm VERY happy with this figure and how faithfully they have recreated her likeness from the show. She's absolutely adorable and in 1/6 size she has a good presence despite being a short character.

I'm possibly in the minority that LOVES small, simple bases but this base is in my opinion great. It's no larger than it needs to be and it doesn't take away from the figure so I think this base is almost perfect in my eyes. The only negative comment I have to make is that the metal pegs make it hard to get the figure on the base, I see from the comments I'm not the only one with this issue but it's nothing major and after a bit of struggling I was able to get her onto the base.

A close up on her adorable face!

She has a classic Kanna expression that bares wonderful likeness to her character from the anime and the eyes have kept the anime art style accurately too. I really like that her eyes have some gloss to them, I'm seeing this more often recently and I feel like it brings figures to life.
You can also see some great details here like the clean paintwork on her outfit and her detailed randoseru straps.

A shot from the back!

She's even adorable from the back! Her fluffy skirt is just adorable and I love her tail. The tail is actually made from a rubbery material which means that it is not fragile and will not break under mild pressure as it can actually withstand movement.

One of the features that really impresses me from the back is the detail in her randoseru backpack. It has a really realistic feeling to it, you can see a detail shot from the bottom here:

Another detail shot!

Look at her adorable little hands, I love that she even has fingernails sculpted and her pose gives her a lot of character. Kanna's love for her new randoseru was truly adorable in the anime, so it feels like she is enthusiastically gripping it in this figure too! One again the details in her outfit are lovely too.

NSFW SHOT BELOW THE SPOILER
View spoilerHide spoiler It has to be said, Kanna is known for being a "thicc loli" and I definitely find it to be a moe point that she is a little more shapely than your average loli. Because I LOVE cute soft thighs, it's no secret that its a moe point of mine!

damn she thicc cough I mean
She's really well sculpted in this area. I'm really impressed that they made this look so good in comparison to the swimsuit Kanna that I bought, which had all the more reason to emphasise this area but didn't.
They recreated her body type very well! They know how to hit my moe points, heh ;;;


And finally, I put her with the swimsuit Kanna for comparison!
https://s33.postimg.cc/5zzoh229b/DSCF5108.jpg
As you can see, despite them both being 1/6 scale, the swimsuit Kanna is considerably taller. However I do believe that Pulchra's version is more accurate towards the anime, particularly in the face. The sculpt is great on both but I might lean towards saying this Pulchra version has the nicer sculpt because they really captured her well.
Bonus: This one didn't arrive broken, h-haha...

But in all fairness, they are both very cute figures and I'm happy to own these two different versions of Kanna. They look adorable together and I wish there was more Kanna merch to make a collection of sorts.

In conclusion, Pulchra seem to have a very bad rep but for the very reasonable price of this figure, the size and quality I'm very happy with it! It looks just like Kanna from the anime. Please don't be put off by the reputation of the manufacturer, this is a very adorable and faithfully recreated figure of a character sadly lacking in the merchandise department. I would recommend this figure to Kanna/Dragon Maid fans and anyone who just has a soft spot for really cute girls!

whobdaplaya (4 months ago) #37347032Thanks for the comprehensive review!
Glad to see Pulchra is stepping up. Their Himeragi ( ITEM #537307 ) was a disaster for me.

I'm glad that you enjoyed it! I think Pulchra can be very hit and miss unfortunately :(

Rajke (4 months ago) #37261327Nice review and video.
The detailing and painting is really good. Love the details on the clothing.
also her face has a really strong expression. The flat colors that are used matches perfectly with the figure. I haven't seen the anime (yet) so i can't tell if their off or not. But i like how the colorscheme is white/blue and finished with red and silver details.

Thank you! :D I'm really happy with her. I think the sculpt is VERY accurate and the colours are nice but some people did complain they aren't exactly like the anime, I like them anyway though. I agree with you, I'm happy with how it looks.

MillyParis (4 months ago) #37257396Would you ever consider doing another artbook one at that speed but without the music? Tbh it's like ASMR to me, so I keep it on a loop.
I really like Pulchra, my first ever figure was from them (broken) but I really like everything since then.
Seriously, amazing job ^^

I'm really glad to hear that you like it so much!! Admittedly I never thought about making it without music because adding some type of music is the only editing I really do to make the video seem 'complete' but I will definitely think about it, as I do imagine it would actually be quite relaxing. I can see what you mean :D

Thank you!

Natalie1290 (4 months ago) #37260144Thanks for posting them side by side - I think I like the hair color of the FOTS one a little more then Pulchra. I ordered the Pulchra 1/6 Kanna I cannot wait to get her - I am hoping the Tohru maid dress version by FOTS will be 1/6 scale as well to match <3 Also ordered Tohru swimsuit and I am hoping that FOTS will make elma in her kimono and Lucoa in her shorts and tank top
No problem, I agree that the hair colour on the FOTS one is better too. I would like to buy from FOTS again because their designs and quality are good but their packaging was really bad (you can read about it in my other review)... I hope the others turn out ok and have better packaging!

victorviper (4 months ago) #37259929This does seem to be an above-average Pulchra offering.
This series is one that I need to catch up on (I've only seen the few couple episodes), although I'm torn between watching the anime and reading the manga.

Yeah, I was starting to get nervous with all the "oh no not Pulchra and their terrible quality" comments pre-release but I'm really happy with how it came out!

I haven't read the manga myself but Kanna does look a little different in the manga. These figures might be slightly closer to the manga colours but she is slimmer in the manga, the figures definitely take her anime body type. So if you are interested in buying the figures maybe I would recommend watching the anime first so the figures are accurate.

solluxcaptor (4 months ago) #37257305Thank you!! I agree that the colours on her hair particularly could be a little brighter, but overall she looks really nice in my opinion :D
I would! I've only personally had positive experiences with them really. They aren't high end so the quality isn't the highest tier but they charge reasonable prices and make some nice characters/designs. And thank you, I'm glad that you enjoyed the video!!
