This character is Kyouka, the mother of the make-shift family. She's my favorite out of the entire cast and I'm actually a bit surprised that GSC made figures from this series considering how obscure it is, or maybe it's actually really popular and I'm just ignorant. The figure came out a little under two years ago which made it hard to find even with the use of Yahoo.jp and Mandarake. I had pretty much given up on finding this figure, but I eventually found it for a price that was only a $5 over retail. Anyways, before I move onto the review here's a Youtube video of the anime's opening for those of you who are curious. You can tell exactly what kind of show this is from the opening.
Front & Back
I love this pose. It's not that fancy or intricate, but the pose shows off Kyouka's personality very well. The way she puffs out her chest combined with her energetic expression suits Kyouka, I can practically hear her voice inside my head when I look at this figure.
The only defect I could find on this figure was that small black smudge on the bell of her neck collar. Fortunately, I was able to remove it after taking the pictures with some handy work. The paint job on the bells and buttons give a nice metallic look.
A simplistic base with a design with the name of the series printed on it. Kyouka doesn't actually need the stand, she's perfectly stable without it.
Kyouka is a dangerous being containing various qualities that are fetishes to many people. I'm glad I was able to get her, she's a great addition. But wait, there's more!
Kyouka comes with two Mini-Kyoukas! These Nendoroid Petits seem to be of a better quality compared to my Touhou ones. The stands are still a pain to use, but it is a bit easier. The tail can be turned to a different angle, but the stand interferes with it. One of them seem to be missing their ahoge, I looked all over for it, but I think GSC screwed me over with QUALITY again. The hair and face pieces also seem to have been made differently so swapping them with other Nendo Petits doesn't work that well, it can still be done however.
Hey, where's the box though? Well, shipping wasn't too friendly this time. No, I can't call it shipping, it was brutal and cruel. The pictures you are about to see is considered to be offensive to some people. Caution is strongly advised.
The box was mangled to death. Take a look at the picture of the bottom of the box. Seriously take a good look, how did that even happen? It was packaged a bit crappy, but what the fuck happened? At least the figure was protected by the clear plastic box thing.
I thought that the ahoge might have been lost during the "shipping", but it seemed unlikely. The two Nendo Petits were covered by a small sheet of plastic in addition to being in the clear box. It would have to fight its way out if it fell off the figure.
