Locked in a gym equipment shed, alone with a cute girl in her gym uniform. It’s not a dream (you perv!), it’s the subject of this week’s figure review :P. I just happen to have this nice figure of Kyou Fujibayashi from the Key series Clannad. Why don’t we take a closer look? ^^
Kyou is one of my favorite anime girls and this is actually my third Kyou figure, the first being Kotobukiya’s 2005 Kyou figure and the second being Wave’s basketball Kyou. In fact, the 2005 Kotobukiya was my first figure. I liked her character enough to buy her as my very first figure while at a convention and well, my figure collecting hobby hasn’t stopped since ^^; Now, this new Kyou figure was released in late 2010 so I guess it’s not all that new but new to me because she didn’t ship out for a long time ^^;
Kyou is dressed in her school gym uniform, complete with bloomers and thigh highs that she always wears. She is posed in a kneeling position looking sweetly innocent as she stares up at you. You don’t plan on taking advantage of her, right? ^^; This figure is actually based on a scene from episode seventeen of the anime series. Have you seen the series? Well, either way here’s a video of the specific scene!
As usual, Kyou wears a white ribbon bow on the left. Ryou, her twin sister, wears one on the right.
Kyou does not disappoint her fans and dressed in a proper gym uniform: bloomers!
Quite a pose from this angle ^^;
Really love this shot. Kyou looks thoughtfully into the distance.
Zettai ryouiki is in full effect!
Kyou is sporting a nice set of shoes… and bloomers :D
Experimented with a bit of overexposure. Any good?
And some nice, warm sunset shots to finish things off.
I had to wait a few more hours after my initial photos to capture these just as the sun set and cast this warm, soft light which only lasts for a few minutes.
And so, I have yet another Kotobukiya figure review. I think by now we know that Kotobukiya figures aren’t always the highest quality. However, I have to say that this Kotobukiya figure is actually pretty respectable quality-wise. Kyou’s gym uniform is nicely detailed with folds in the cloth and shadow shading. Her gym shorts (bloomers! :3) aren’t just a flat red, the the color varies from light to darker to simulate stretching fabric and darker crevices. heehee ^^; Her fingernails are painted pink and cheeks are blushing brightly. Really, this is an attractive figure. Kotobukiya has done a fine job on this. Sure, it’s not perfect. Some of the seams could have been better (particularly on her bloomers), and the strands of hair could have been finer and more detailed, but I still love this figure. Kyou just looks great!
If you like Kyou or just want a figure of a cute girl in a gym uniform, I highly recommend this figure. I’m very satisfied with my purchase and I think you will be too ^^
