西連寺春菜 Sairenji Haruna
Posted by meronpan on May 6, 2009
Time to finish up my ToLoveる themed posts with a mini review of sairenji haruna.
It’s a mini review ‘cuz well… maybe it was the mediocrity of the figure or that I was tired or something but just wasn’t getting the usual motivation.
A slightly older release (…July of last year?) by Shueisha. At the time I was focused on getting her and lala in their seifuku for a matching set. Probably would’ve passed if it weren’t for set completion sickness.
She’s not terrible or anything, but for me she’s not really anything special either.
A kind of blank look on her face along with a sort of timid pose… details are ok I guess, but you can see how her hair isn’t particularly thrilling. Kind of thick bangs there… I do like her eyes though.
I think my favorite part of the figure is the skirt.
Hair seam, seams where her arms connect…usually that sort of stuff doesn’t bother me too much. But when there’s not too much else to grab my attention, that’s when I get nitpicky ^^;
I guess at least she wasn’t too pricey. And from some angles she seems to look better… kinda like the below shot mebbe…?
Unfortunately, as you may already be aware… there’s the base issue.
Ugh the base. It’s huuuuuge! For dainty little sairenji! It looks comical being so big. orz
Ah well. So as not to end on a sour note, here’s a group shot of my seifuku figures:
There’s at least one missing… can you guess who? Sorry no prize :P
Lovelyduckie covered her back in september, also lamenting the huge base.
Haven’t seen any other haruna releases that blew me away so at least I’ve completed my set as best I could for the time being.
In summary, a pretty mediocre release for my tastes, especially when you take a look at that base.
