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.

The usual from Figma boxes.
You can see my hams in the reflection.

Like another blogger mentioned, the shipping cost for this was beastly. This figure shipped alone and initially cost 4770 Yen for SAL. I kindly asked AmiAmi to switch it to EMS as it was only 400 Yen more.
I don't usually include pictures of the actual shipping box in my reviews, but I think this one is an excellent exception. Brace yourself for for some DFC and dat ass, a deadly combination.
