The price for her was 60% of the original price, and I somewhat liked it from when looking at all the pictures of her from other owners, so I thought why not buy her too while I was at it buying a bunch of other figures. ^^

Cute and fitting package. Sword and base is separate from the figure, so not so much assembling. The hand was a bit tight at first when putting in the sword, but it's a bit easier for every time you try. Only a plus that it's tight, of course; we don't want her to drop it after all.


The figure

The first thing that hit me when getting her was that she was much smaller than I had imagined her to be (I never checked the measurements or scale). But she still has great details.
Painting isn't perfect on the inside of her kimono near her legs, but the decals on her kimono is quite lovely and has lots of details. One wish I have wit the painting is the pale pink he kimono has. I wish it was just a tad but saturated so that it stood out more.
The sculpting is quite good (though the seams on the hair are there, like so many other figures). One thing that's bugging me is that she isn't looking straight at the horizon, but rather down into the ground. Not only does it makes her look lost in her thoughts but it makes it quite difficult to get a good angle from the front where she's looking into the camera, too. This seems to be a change for the second release, cause I've learned that the first release did not have this issue. It could be that they wanted it to look like she's leaning into the wind, rather than standing straight. I can't explain it any other way really.


Extra photos

Here are some more shots showing off the great details of the decals/painting and other various parts:

Bonus shots

I wanted to take shots of her in nature, but there is no greenery outside yet. Summer is late this year, so I'll have to be patient and wait. In the meantime I took these.

iTheShirt7 years ago#1487343I own her and I like her but she's just so hard to display with other figures because of her warm tones and calm vibes. What could you possibly display next to her? It's difficult.

I just saw this ad in the side bar. =_______=

theyasminshow7 years ago#1487129She's always on the front page 'Items on Fire' - I think she is pretty and elegant, but I figured the hype must have something to do with her character that I don't know about. Nice idea with the pink paper, btw. ;P

Ah, of course! Forgot she was on the front page. Seems items on fire are just the amount of how many that wish for that figure. Apparently many want this one. ^^;
Her character isn't really that special, if you ask me.

Thanks! I didn't have any petals (no spring here quite yet), so I had to make something similar. The filling paper that came with the shipping box happened to be pink. Only meant to use it for the falling petals shot, but I kinda liked it in the other shot too. ^^

Thanks!

There is a hype about her? I can't say I've noticed, and I couldn't figure out why either. I'm not that much of a fan of Shiki, though she's kind of nice. I like the movies (and I love the music for it) and I liked the figure, that's all for me. ^^
