    ZoidsFanatic2 (1 month ago) #62926900Nice review as always. Hmmm, might need to suggest this one to my friend. He’a still huge into FNC (I also think he still has a actual FNC unless he sold it). I’m still surprised the series never got much in the figure department.

    Oh wow, if he is into FNC (both the character and the actual gun), he should really get this figure. Affordable and great posing! :)

    The series is really not well known over where I live (Western Europe) and the only reason I personally ever found out about this series (although it hits so much of my moe points) was Victor's review 5+ years ago. If not for his review, I might have never found out! The series seems to have almost no presence at all, while it was a very cute and interesting take on guns, even if you are not a gun-fanatic.

    victorviper (1 month ago) #62950730I can't believe it's been 5 years since I reviewed this figure. That was just the other day :).
    This figure has held up well. The detail on the rifle and her interesting pose means this is still a pretty interesting figure.
    I'm still surprised that Upotte! got exactly one figure made. I could understand such a niche show getting absolutely nothing, but it seems like whenever a company makes a figure from a series, there are usually a couple more in the works.
    It's too bad the series never really found an audience, as it has a quirky charm to it as sort of a Strike Witches/Negima mashup. Since the anime got a North American release, I was hopeful for a while that the manga might get localized but it doesn't look like that is going to happen.
    Now, because of this article I might have to rewatch the show again :).


    Hehe, I remember your review being 'a while ago', so I was surprised when I looked it up and saw it was 5+ years ago. :)

    You can see that she is a bit of an older prize figure, but her good posing and great price still makes her a win-win.

    Maybe with Upotte!! SEGA tested the waters with the sales for FNC before possibly releasing other girls. If I remember correctly, something similar was also the case with the So Ra No Wo To prize figures, although most prize figures seem to get released in at least batches of 2 characters.

    I'm really glad you did your review back then, because I never heard of the series before that! This series is actually really cute and interesting! I mean, I learned more about guns thanks to that series (poor Elle...) than watching more serious military themed franchises. ;)

    Maybe we should do this thing where every 5 years one of us brings attention to Upotte!! again until it gains more fans? Haha!

    Go for it! Writing about this series and figure makes me motivated to rewatch it myself as well. :)
