Normally, when I buy a figure it’s because I love the character of which the figure is modeled as is evident from the multitude of Kagami and Lucky Star figures in my possession. Every once in a while though a figure is simply so attractive that I just want it, regardless of whether or not I know much or anything about the character. And so, Okami-san was pre-ordered ;).
So, yeah, I really don’t know much about this character besides that she is a wolf of some sort and has some companions ^^; I’ve heard mixed reviews of the series, some people liked it others thought it was just mediocre. The thing is though, regardless of how good or bad the anime was, Alter has made a stunning figure here.
I particularly love her modified school uniform. It’s not really very fancy, just a long skirt with slits in the sides but it just looks so darn sexy :3 And those boots <3.
This is my first outdoors figure shoot this year. It’s finally Spring and while we’ve been getting rain nearly non-stop for the past two weeks, it finally let up (a little) and I ventured out to a local park for some photos.
Not only is her outfit great, but I love the attitude she portrays. Like she’s a tough bad-girl and does things her way. I wonder if that’s how her character is in the series? ;) Tsundere girls are right up my alley :D
Ryoko comes with a simple, yet cute cat-themed base.
Ryoko has her school bag slung over her shoulder in a tomboyish fashion which adds to her tough looks. The bag is removable but I’m not sure why since they didn’t gave her any other accessories and she looks a bit silly with her arm posed like that but not holding anything ^^; Would have been better if they gave her a coat or something else to hold as an option.
On her waist are two strange cat things, one white, one black which probably have some significance in the story but is unknown to me.
Random flower photo ^^;
Her hair is nicely detailed and isn’t just a large clump of plastic like most other figures. There are actually several separate strands of hair which makes it look more realistic. It’s also modeled quite nicely and has a natural, flowing look to it.
Ryoko-san gets to enjoy the first Spring blossoms.
So guys, is this series worth watching? I may give it a try just because I’m liking Ryoko’s appearance so much (yes, I know that’s shallow xD). Either way, I have an excellent new Alter figure which keeps the record for highest percentage of great figures in my collection (100% so far!). I you like the series, get this figure. If you’re like me and don’t know the series, get this figure anyway! She’s too good to miss! ^^
Thanks for viewing!
