Just got this figure a few days ago and since I wanted to do some kind of review for some time now, why not start with her? Please keep in mind - this figure is very ecchi, so very much NSFW - consider yourself warned! Now on to the review...

This is my first review yet, so please consider leaving some feedback to help me improve in the future. :)

The box surprised me a little. It's not your typical see-through window box, but rather a solid red all around, safe for some writing on the front and back. Only seen this once before, with ITEM #99092 - although her box was blue.

Of course, the figure is quite exposed, but I still feel they could have added at least some artwork or found another way to hide the naughty bits while still having a window to look through. It does look quite classy, though. Now if I could actually read Japanese...

The multi-language backside warning text is actually a nice touch. I usually don't see that on my other boxes.

Once you open it there is the typical blister keeping the figure safe. Plastic foil covers up her face and her bottom half is even covered in opaque plastic - so there is not much to see yet.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984731.jpeghttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984732.jpeg

The big blister contains the assembled figure with an alternative bottom part, also covered in opaque plastic foil. The figure comes with a black base and a chair. A small blister is duct taped to the backside containing two types of panties and a vibrator accesory. Wonder how that'll be used...

Of course there's also the obligatory instruction sheet on how to swap and assemble all the pieces. There's also a second instruction sheet I'm not sure about - could be a warning to be careful during assembly to not get any paint transfers between her clothing and legs. Should have taken a picture and ask someone fluent in Japanese, now that I think of it.

With the top cover and some plastic foil removed, we finally get to see her face at least. Her alternative bottom half can be seen at the left side behind the figure, still covered in some opaque foil.

Now brace yourself, it's time to show all the goods in the box. This is your last chance to close the browser tab before seeing all the naughty goods.

No? Good, let's get this over with:

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984735.jpeg

The two panties in close-up (note the tiny peg on the left set):

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984751.jpeg

Interesting.

The bottom half without the vibrator is the "default" one. As seen on the picture, the boots can be taken off and swapped to her alternative legs.

The base is very basic - just shiny black plastic with some pegs and holes. A bit disappointing, really. Not seen on the picture, but the chair has pegs underneath which go into the holes on the black base. The pegs in the base then match up with holes in her boots.

She could possibly be displayed without the base, but then you'd always see the pegs beneath the chair. I didn't really try it, but put her up on the base instead:

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984736.jpeg

This is the least-naughty display option. There is no way to cover up her boobs, but one of the two panties can be put between her legs to barely cover up her lower bits. And I mean "barely". The panties are also a bit loose and might fall off when moving the figure.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984737.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984738.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984739.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984740.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984741.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984742.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984743.jpeg

Now let's drop all pretense about covering up a 18+ figure and finally remove the panties.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984744.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984745.jpeg

The sculpting seems okay, but I was a bit disappointed by the paint job here. There are many other figures with lots more detail or even a glossy shine on their lady bits. I do like the rope going all the way down there, though.

Now you can swap the bottom half to an alternative set, which also includes alternative underwear:

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984746.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984747.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984748.jpeg

The panties are clipped on similarly to the first set, but hold much better. They're actually a bit harder to put on and a peg on the panties fits right into the bottom of the vibrator. Of course, you can also display her without panties:

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984749.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984750.jpeg

If you look hard enough, you can see the peg hole at the bottom of the vibrator. Due to the angle, it's not really noticeable, though. This vibrator is also not detachable - so there's no way to insert any alternative object unless you want to risk damaging this figure. I sure don't.

A few close-ups:

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984754.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984755.jpeg

There's a small gap between the vibrator and her fleshy bits. It doesn't look too bad, but I've seen other figures with insertable objects offering a better fit without such gaps.

Now on to the face:

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984756.jpeg

The figure comes with no alternative face, so that's the only expression you get. I found if to be fairly cute and like her shy head pose, looking away to the side to avoid eye contact.

The hair has a few rough edges and there is something off about her mouth - I can't really nail it down, though. Maybe a lack of definition for where her lips should be.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984757.jpeg

Now I have no issues with her boobs at last. The sculptor did a great job as they get slightly squeezed between the rope. They're also of a pretty good size - big, sure, but not gravity-defying huge. As seems customary for this type of figure, her nipples also have a light shine on them.

A subtle detail easy to miss is the slight change in skin color where the rope presses against her flesh - if you look closely, you can see her skin go pale around this area.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984758.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984760.jpeg

Her right hand is holding her skirt/kimono up:

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984759.jpeg

The left hand is placed on the chairback, but I haven't really managed a tight fit yet - there's always some small gap between her fingers and the plastic chair:

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984761.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984762.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984763.jpeg

Her hair seems a bit bland, but has a nice downwards flow and the red ribbon on top definitely looks cute and fits the rest of her wardrobe.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984764.jpeg

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984765.jpeg

Remember the box contents mentioned at the beginning? There's also a lone vibrator accessory included, which I have no real idea what to do with. There's no free hand to put it in, nor is there any room on the chair. You can ... put it on the floor, I guess!? Really, there's not much point to it, especially if you use the alternative bottom half where that vibrator is put to good use already. It's good to have a spare one, I guess.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2018/05/21/1984766.jpeg

So, what do I think?

Sculpting: 8/10
I like the overall sculpting. Nice amount of detail, good body shape and well-sculpted clothes. The rope squeezing her boobs and arms is especially nice to look at, of course. I mainly have slight issues with her mouth and the poor fitting of her left hand as well as a few other nitpicks I've already mentioned above.

Painting: 7/10
I like the colors used here - the clothing, the rope, the ribbon. It all fits rather well together. There are a few quality issues with the paint, e.g. at the end of her sleeves or the edges of her clothing. The labia on both her bottom halves could have also used a bit more detail. Overall, it's good, but not outstanding.

Posing: 9/10
Now that's the reason I actually bought her - just really liked the pose of her presenting herself like that, both shy yet also inviting, with or without a vibrator.

Base: 4/10
Very boring and unimaginative black, shiny piece of plastic. It doesn't even fit that well and requires a bit of fighting to get all the pegs into the right holes. Gets the job done, I guess, but not much more.

Packaging: 7/10
Due to the lack of a window it's a bit of a black red box. It does look classy and mysterious, though, and the contents are well-protected inside.

Enjoyment: 8/10
I'm pretty satisfied with her. I like the ropes, the pose, the style of clothes and the cute/shy look of her. Of course, you have to be willing to display her fully exposed more or less - there's no way to hide her ecchi-ness or to make her look just cute and innocent.



Thank you for reading this review! If you have any feedback, suggestions or questions, please feel free to comment or send me a message! Again, this was my first review of this kind and I'd like to do more in the future.

arparso (1 ano atrás) #37068402Thank you very much! :D
Also depends on the company, I guess. Most of my Skytube- and Dragon Toy figures had a window (sometimes behind a "door", though). Native seems to prefer windowless boxes, however.
I don't know - have a look at my other review showing the packaging for the Hapymaher bunny figure (NSFW!): BLOG #40333
That figure is just as lewd as this one and they even got big, large pictures on the outer box as well as a window. Obviously, the pictures are censored, but not enough to fool anyone.
I guess it's down to each company on how to design the box. Native seems to prefer windowless and pictureless boxes while Skytube shows a lot more on the outside. In the end, it's still just a box, though.


Oh I think we misunderstood a bit (English is not my first language). ^^'' Censored pictures are allowed, figures with cast-off parts on them showing through windows are allowed, but showing the actual lewd parts of a figure without a 'door' for censoring is not allowed. Native has indeed made it a brand thing that the boxes are stylish and don't seem like figure boxes (unless you know what it is). I quite like that approach compared to seeing a figure all-out like that (indeed, that censoring is so minimal that it is laughable). :P

Anyway, I quite like the box design of this one, simple, but very stylish. :) My favorite Native box myself is the 'hat box' for Mordina: PICTURE #473038

Thank you very much! :D

Maakie (1 ano atrás) #37063448And about the non-windows-boxes, most of the 'heavily NSFW' figures come in those.

Really nice review! Your pictures are so good! :)

And about the non-windows-boxes, most of the 'heavily NSFW' figures come in those. For example, most ecchi figures can be covered up by box design or clothes covering the naughty bits, but with this figure everything is out at all times, and showing that on display in a store in Japan is a no-no. :)

Heavenly_Otaku (1 ano atrás) #34513042My suggestion, you could have brighter lighting in the pictures of the figure. Some parts of the pictures are dark, and hide the details of her. You could also take pictures of her with other figures for scale comparison.
Thank you, great suggestions! I already have some ideas on how to get some better lighting for the next review. :)

TomTheCat (1 ano atrás) #34544741BTW, all Native boxes I've ever seen don't have any windows.
Oh, is that so? I've not been collecting for long and don't have many Native boxes, but now that you've mentioned it... doh! -.-

victorviper (1 ano atrás) #34576089I think TomTheCat hit on the head about her face. In PICTURE #1984756 and a couple other shots, her mouth looks sunken in with respect to the rest of her face, almost as if she doesn't have any teeth!
Haha, yeah, a bit. It looks better in person, to be honest, but there's definitely something odd about her mouth.

victorviper (1 ano atrás) #34576089Oddly enough, I think one of the most interesting parts of the figure is her boots!
Indeed, should have mentioned them in the review, I guess. They look very nice up close and who could resist tall leather boots, anyway!? :D

Interesting review. This figure has some very neat features (the naughty miko theme, the bondage-under-clothes scenario, and the hands-free vibrator in her panties is a rather interesting idea), but something about her always seemed a bit off, and after reading this review I agree that it's her mouth.

Oddly enough, I think one of the most interesting parts of the figure is her boots! The tall heeled boots would really clash with her otherwise nadeshiko-like appearance, but it's a good look all the same.

Not gonna lie. That's some pretty hot PVC.

Thanks for this review! I was always wondering if she could be displayed both without rope and vibrator - turns out she can't.

Seeing her face up close I can't help but think she forgot to put her teeth in >_<

BTW, all Native boxes I've ever seen don't have any windows.

Thank you for the review of this figure. Lots of detailed points about her, written well. Thumbs Up.
My suggestion, you could have brighter lighting in the pictures of the figure. Some parts of the pictures are dark, and hide the details of her. You could also take pictures of her with other figures for scale comparison.

Looking forward to your reviews in the future.
