    Time flies by so fast! I also saw the one on AmiAmi, it's certainly a good deal for 10 380Y. Back in the days, I ordered her from Yahoo!Japan Auctions and paid much more than that at the end of the day.

    I was recently shuffling figures on my shelves and when it came to Hakufu, I let her keep her dedicated spot. Since I purchased her many years ago, she's been on my permanent display up to this day which can testify she has grown on my since then. She certainly has a lot of limitation (pale paint job typical of cold cast and wrong hair color), but that said, I still consider the sculptor did a good job representing her voluptuous body. It's definitely not that much detailed, but the proportions are right and the pose charming. So I would say I'm still critical about this particular figure after all these years, but her qualities are good enough to shine through it. Knowing we share some common interest in this kind of bikini/lingerie figures, I believe you would like her if you paid the right price. To be honest, I also own ITEM #331607 and while it is technically a far superior figure in many aspect, I still think ITEM #11438 has more genuine old fashioned charm. Her belly and the way she sits certainly grab the attention. So to answer your original question, I wouldn't mind purchasing this figure again if I had to. Since you have a soft spot for oldies like that, I believe she would find a good place in your collection if you are inclined to purchase her.

    Beautiful pictures as always. Your attention to carefully photograph figures is highly appreciated. I'm more convinced than ever to track down this beauty. Interestingly enough, when the "lampshade" skirt rest on the base, it really looks better. Once again, thank you very much! It will be a pleasure to read your review!

    victorviper (10 месяцев назад) #28813977I was going to write a review of that figure, but I never quite got around to doing so. I got as far as setting up the review and organizing the pictures, but I never actually wrote anything. I've got a dozen reviews like that for which I keep saying "maybe someday...".
    It probably doesn't help that I don't really know very much about the character. I know Kasumi is a secondary character from Muv-Luv Alternative, but that's about it.
    I bought the figure because I found her cheap on Amazon a couple of years ago, and I thought she was cute. Plus, I like her body language and melancholic expression paired with the bunny costume; it kind of reminds me of this ITEM #1156 melancholic bunny Asuka :).


    Ah, like that~ Well, photographing is already a lot of fun, reviewing or not! I also recently made some pictures of figures that are already heavily reviewed, so I was thinking of just making small picture-dumps blogs with them or do some writing about them without actually reviewing. Still thinking about that.

    I only wrote the introduction to my Kasumi review so far, but my pictures are done editing. I think I will upload her review next week if I keep on having enough time to work on the reviews (my new job will start soon which will take away a lot of the free time I now have).

    To be honest there, I also don't know much about Muv-Luv, even though I also almost bought ITEM #4433 one time. I guess I'm just really attracted to the character design. Apparently Kasumi has quite a big role in the Alternative spin-off.

    I got mine when I did a huge trade with a friend a few years ago, in which we exchanged multiple scaled figures from our collection. I thought her posing and face was adorable.

    Hey! Did you ever make a review of ITEM #166169 ? I noticed a lot of pictures from you at this figure's page, but did not find (or could remember) a review from you about this one.

    I was planning on reviewing her myself and was editing the pictures when I saw your pictures there. It would be interesting to compare our opinions on her (if you have reviewed her ;) ).

    victorviper (1 год назад) #25483596For me, I actually watched Komugi first and then checked out Soultaker. Despite being a lightweight and fluffy show, there's really a lot that's stuck with me from Komugi, like the Gatchaman parody and episode three which is just one big music video.
    I'm glad you liked Upotte!. I figured that the moe-military theme would be up your alley, but I guess it's just way too niche to have any mass appeal, and that's why only Funco-chan got her own figure. I was sort of hoping Ichiroku would get a figure, but I guess that's not going to happen. Oh well...


    To distract me a bit after watching the new Komugi, I decided to re-watch Yuru Yuri. I think I laughed more in the 1st episode of Yuru Yuri than during the full series of Komugi. :T

    As Soultaker is quite a dark series, I really enjoyed the 'color' of Komugi there~ ;) As for the Komugi solo-series, I mainly remember the pool-episode, which is quite weird considering most series have such bad pool/beach-episode fillers, I normally don't remember them.

    Yes! It's been quite a while since I watched the series, but I think we never talked about it! I thought it was very cute and indeed right up my alley! :D Especially the 'class trip' in the final episodes I enjoyed watching a lot as you could very well see the differences between all the gun types. The staff put a lot of research and work into it! :)

    I just paid for my Funco figure yesterday, I hope the seller ships her out soon. :) As for figures from other characters...I wouldn't expect anything even more, to be honest. The series is very unknown. If it wasn't for your review I wouldn't have found out about it, even though so many themes from the series hit my interest!

    victorviper (1 год назад) #25353802Yeah, that's pretty much my feelings on the new show. Of course, the original Komugi was not exactly some masterpiece of storytelling, but you could tell the staff had fun working on it and the characters had a lot of charm. Plus, I always thought its connection with the Soultaker anime was pretty hilarious in its own right. With the new show, I found the characters to be just cookie-cutter and shallow. It's like they were just going through the motions...

    Uhuh, I watched Soultaker first and already got a liking to Komugi there. When I found out about the specific Komugi spinoff I thought it was hilarious. :) And the series itself is indeed no masterpiece, but it's just so cute. And quite unique both in visuals and character designs. With this new series I know it has the Komugi-name, but it could have almost been any generic idol/cute girl anime... :/ For me the only new fun addition was Tsukasa, but in general I have a soft spot for crossdressing and tomboys...

    Also, just this morning I saw an local advertisement for someone selling her second hand ITEM #144495 for very cheap! So I send a quick PM and hope that I am the first one that responded. :) I am not actively hunting for this figure, but a few months after your review of the figure I watched the anime and ended up liking it a lot! :D Also poor Elle breaking down the whole time... :'(

    So..I finally got to watching the new Komugi series and...yeah wow. It indeed wasn't that good. It's like they try to lift on the current idol hype with an older slightly nostalgic sort-of-famous series it's name. I didn't dislike the series, but there is also not much to rave about. Also a lot of the animations seemed a bit simple/cheap? Tsukasa is a cute character, though. I guess that is the best part of the series. And the new character designs in general are cute! I also like the new look of Komugi, although old Komugi is still the best. :)

    Oh well, at least I got motivated to rewatch the older Komugi mugi mugi series! I'm sure that will cheer me up and get me motivated again to cosplay old design Komugi some day. :)

    Sorry if I'm making you ultra jealous with this, I just wanted to share my happiness with another Komugi fan! <3

    It's the base of ITEM #5888 :)
