Your favorite figure retailer has begun taking pre-orders for a 1/8th scale Max Factory / Good Smile Company recreation of Medaka Box's eponymous Medaka Kurokami. The 98th Student Council President of Hakoniwa Academy ships in January for 7,800 yen ($98).
From GSC's Mika-tan blog, with their commentary:
From the manga series serialized in Shounen Jump which was made into an anime this year, ‘Medaka Box’ comes a 1/8th scale figure of the main character of the series, Medaka Kurokami! She is posed with a fan in her hand in a very imposing pose – a pose which comes from the cover of the first volume of the manga, and the figure is a really perfect rendition!
This is a Max Factory product! and a really stunning one at that!!
This is how she looks from the back!
The sculpting of the hair blowing to the side and the skirt ruffling in the wind makes for a lovely dynamic figure! The skirt is also at the perfect angle to just prevent you from seeing anything.
Nothing to criticize here!
I’m sure I’ve said it before, but I really don’t think there should be anyone who doesn’t like a big bust!Oh, But don’t get me wrong – I love small ones just as much! All boobs should be loved equally! (`･ω･´)
So close, and yet so far…
It’s like being down at the subway when the wind suddenly picks up, just the other day there was a school girl in front of me at the station and it blew up just like this! So close and yet so far! ヽ(゜∀゜)ノ
She really is quite the beauty!
She has a very mature and sexy appeal to her body and expression! That slight smile is also very sexy! Having her look at me like that makes me feel like I’m going to melt… but I guess that’s why I love it so much.
Lovely long legs!
The legs themselves look so squishy and touchable, and I love the way they tighten up as the socks begin!! The curves from the thighs to the knees are also quite the treat… I can’t help but want to touch them!!
The hand holding the fan is so dignified!
Your eyes might be drawn to the right, but try focus on the details of the hand for a second! Those fingers are so thin and delicately sculpted – it makes her look so graceful and dignified! They also have a nice squishy feeling to the way they look, once again enticing you to touch them!!
The two armbands can be removed!
That allows you to recreate some of the situations that occurred in the original manga! A few small changes are always nice, they give you a little variety on how you choose to display her!
I also have to add that I love the way it looks as if she is looking down on me from this photo! ヽ(゜∀゜)ノ
Speaking of Medaka, she's the subject of this week's Gainax welcome splash, illustrated by key animator Akira Yamashita .
