Category: Figure Reviews
The Japanese seem to love making moe-characters out of anything, and so they did for the anime series Arpeggio of Blue Steel: Ars Nova where the hostile force has AI of their battleships recreated in physical form called Mental Models. Takao here is one of the first our protagonist happens to fight, and also the AI I come to like the most in the series. I didn’t exactly think that I needed to buy a figure of her, but seeing this one I spontaneously pre-ordered it even though I haven’t heard of the manufacturer Q Ques before.
When the first release of Oshino Shinobu by Good Smile Company came by I don’t think I even blinked. But when this re-release of Oshino Shinobu from the Bakemonogatari (and several other -monogatari) series came along I made some serious thoughts about it and decided to go for it. It makes one wonder why I didn’t buy it earlier! I may only have seen two of the series one time each so far (planning on seeing them all one day) and barely remember Shinobu I’m willing to bet anyone can enjoy this figure greatly even if they don’t know Shinobu at all only cause it is of such good quality.
Will I, or rather, Shinobu be able to convince you?
The version I got is the re-release by Good Smile Company. I had seen the first release in many photos and thought it was really nice looking but was too late at buying it. I one day found the re-release for 60% of the original price and decided to go for it while ordering another bunch of other figures. As a character from a series I like and love the music from it’s certainly not with any regret that I got her.
From the very popular anime series Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica comes Ultimate Madoka, often called Godoka in English, or Madokami (Mado
ka + kami, God) in Japanese. Despite Madoka only being seen in one scene with this outfit it’s immensely popular.
So why did I buy her? Lets take a look and find out!
