向坂環 ‐挑発‐ Kousaka Tamaki -Seduction-
Posted by meronpan on July 11, 2009
Hopefully the title of this post alerted any nsfw content sensitive folks in time… no bare skin, but well, I’m sure scantily clad females is grounds enough for plenty of places ^^; Anyhow, here we go~
Some stores may list her as the “provocative” or even on their main site, as the “provocation” version. Went with the text that was on the box, though according to online dictionaries, 挑発 is more accurately translated to provocative. Presenting Kotobukiya’s rendition of kousaka tamaki, -seduction- version! Or to fans of the series more commonly known as tama-nee ^^
ToHeart2 had a short lived run as my favorite visual novel – unfortunately it was quickly displaced by Kanon (ugh that reminds me somehow my vn queue is still overloaded… haven’t even touched air or clannad -_-). Even so, as one of my first tama-nee remains among my favorite characters ^^
If you don’t know her, tama-nee is one of those super characters – strong willed, good cook, popular, smart, athletic (well, I forget if she’s actually good at sports but she packs quite a punch, especially for her little brother yuuji ^^;), etc.
And yeah, supposedly she’s in high school, but last time I checked no one in high school had a body like that :P
Another release in Kotobukiya’s 4-leaves line, and my second. Chizuru left quite a bad impression with her strange partially-cast-offable shirt but after seeing the pics I decided they executed tama-nee good enough.
As you can see they supply a purple cushion to act as her base. Not that it really matters I guess but quite a bit smaller than chizuru’s.
Kotobukiya released the temptation version earlier – white lingerie and a more innocent expression. Don’t remember playing the later released x-rated version of th2 so I’m not sure which is more in character for her in ero situations, but in general the devious expression she’s got in this release seems to fit more.
I suppose actually it might’ve helped if the cushion was a bit thicker… something about it seems too flimsy or something.
Also be sure to face the kotobukiya tag away from your viewing audience :P
Another difference between this release and the previous one is the jeweled chain accessory she comes with. Personally thought it was a nice touch and helped sway me into a purchase.
Nice thing about doing reviews of figures straight out of the box is no dusting requrired ^_^
Ribbons rendered in pvc never seem to be able to withstand the scrutiny of a macro lens ^^;
From a normal distance it looks fine though :P
Also noticed some of the paint from her top got on her top lip…
But again, that’s not a concern at any reasonable viewing distance.
I thought I heard there was a meme revolving around tama-nee on 2ch or 4ch? Something about her being “healthy”?
Well, whatever it was, she can barely contain her oppai
Love the arm length gloves
Also the long stockings ^^
and her oshi…*ahem*
Wouldn’t say that this is the end-all must-have tama-nee figure, but she’s pretty well executed and in a nice 1/6 scale.
Lately I’ve been gravitating towards larger scale figures…
Problem is trying to find the balance between detail work and scale.
This is actually my first tama-nee figure, despite my desires to acquire her earlier. I was extremely picky though and none of the earlier releases really clicked
I don’t claim this version to be that superior to everything previously, more that I finally caved and just had to get *some* version of her ^^;
Now I just need to find room to display her… she’s alone on a bookshelf atop a pile of CDs at the moment orz
Lulu dives in~
Tried walking around with both my 100mm macro and 18-55mm zoom in Tokyo… getting a better feel for both of ‘em. We’ll see if that helps the pics at all ^^;
Anyhow, pretty good release as far as I’m concerned (also since it’s kotobukiya ^^; sorry koto but you’ve gotta work hard to beat alter :P)
Also, if you’ve got a bit more ero on the mind, Tier has a review of kaitendoh’s completely cast-off version.
…or if you’ve really got ero on the mind, head over to gelbooru :P
