ララ・サタリン・デビルーク Lala Satalin Deviluke

Decided to finally do a review for Alpha Omega’s Lala, spurred on by the recent yami release and having plowed through 5 volumes of the ToLoveる manga in the last week or so ^^;
mmm sorry if the pantsu shot caught ya off guard :P The out of character pic is from gelbooru. (out of character because she looks shy/embarrassed, not because she’s showing her pantsu :P)
If you’re unfamiliar with ToLoveる, Lala is introduced in the first chapter/epsiode when she teleports nekkid into Rito’s (the male lead) bathtub. With him in it, of course. aaand that pretty much sets the stage for the rest of the series.
Lala arrived early last December so… wow, almost half a year late with this one ^^;
When I was ordering I was mostly a sairenji fan, so I wanted the Megahouse version to match (seifuku).
Still stand by that decision, but GSC’s version is still very tempting.
Alpha Omega means Alter + Megahouse == good stuff, and I wasn’t disappointed.
As usual the close up shots reveal my imperfect dusting job.
Well, actually it looks okay above I guess. But in the other pics with different lighting, it was terrible ^^;
No peeping :P
Lala no oppai.
Base is boring as usual, but I can hardly expect anything better nowadays ^^; Either it’s drop dead gorgeous, plain, or retarded like haruna’s ^^;
At first, rooting for rito and sairenji I wasn’t such a fan of lala getting in the way…
Definitely grew on me over the last few volumes though.
Was satisfied with how the pics turned out this time. Perhaps could’ve used a bit more light and definitely needed a diffuser for my secondary light, but if you can ignore that… ^^;; Taking Blowfish‘s advice to take ron~‘s advice to take lu-k‘s advice on achieving black backgrounds, I increased the distance of the figure to background by a lot.
I would say I’ve never been a fan of the lumpy kinda hair… reminds me of the recent Alter Louise release. From the front it looks fine, but from the top/behind it leaves a bit to be desired.
Made a wallpaper… though I have a feeling I’m prolly the only one who uses ’em :P Think this is my favorite pic of the bunch.
From our recent wallpaper discussion looks like most of y’all don’t appreciate text, but I figure I gotta brand my stuff sometimes :P Plus it’s in the corner and easily removed with your favorite editor.
We’ll finish up with an obligatory group shot.
Verdict? A solid Alpha Omega release. Can’t go wrong if you’re a fan of the character. If not… I still think she’s pretty good, but not terribly exciting or jaw dropping. After all she’s just posing in seifuku like countless other anime characters ^^;
James had a much more timely review… I’m sure he’s not the only other to do so. Let me know if I overlooked yours ^^ oo and looks like James also added a review of the shueisha lala & sairenji xmas outfit releases just now ^^
Update: Forgot to mention! blaaaa had a problem with her support foot! One of the two pegs in her foot snapped… noticed when it wasn’t completely flush. orz She was still standing, but because of the break, leaning back ever so slightly and her foot came off the base a little. Decided to super glue it down to avoid further damage caused by the imbalance. Disappointed to have to deal with that sort of problem in a recent release… I wonder if manufacturers forgot to consider the base when taking anti-leaning precautions… ;_;
