赤夜 萌香 バンパイア覚醒後ver. ~ Akashiya Moka Awakened ver.
Posted by meronpan on July 15, 2009
From the pantsutastic manga/anime Rosario & Vampire, moka!
Definitely glad I waited for this version ^^ Well, not that I don’t like the shueisha version but if I had to pick just one… ne? ^^
I’ve got all the manga lined up to read but the only progress I’ve made in the series is the anime… and there I’ve only gotten through the 1st season and a couple episodes of the 2nd -_-
Nevertheless something about the character and series persuaded me into getting the figure ^^
I guess the thing about not having a perfect setup is that each review is an adventure. Feels like I can never get consistent results. And lately I’ve really been struggling with the white/color/or whatever balance… never feels like the skin tones are right.
Finally figured I could compare to the official shots for a reference, but that was well after the shots were taken ^^;
The base is absolutely lovely. At least by my standards. I totally don’t mind simple and the solid chunk of plexiglass is perfect. Mirror makes even better ^^
Moka fits onto a peg on the cross, which is turn fits snuggly into the base. Other than that the only assembly you have to mess with is getting her rosario into her hands.
Having completely forgotten what the prototype looked like I first thought I’d have to connect the cross to the chain on her neck. Thankfully that wasn’t he case or I woulda broken something for sure ^^;
Dress looks great, though better at non-zoomed distances ^^;
Second review in a row to involve chains
Head to toe, pretty happy with all the details of this release ^^
Shallow depth of field was killing me in this review too ^^;; Had to decide between having not much in focus or shooting at the angles I wanted. Or closing up the aperture but then I woulda had to worry about diffraction.
Well, I guess strangely it’s just that glove that’s boroboro
Love her eyes~
I need an air filter… base was already getting dusty before I was done taking pics! orz
Let’s adjust that focus a bit…
Pose, outfit, hair, expression… yum ^^
A solid buy for moka fans.
Twin seductresses ^^
Hope her hair has no trouble supporting itself. Still have a long summer ahead.
foo-bar-baz gave her a 4/5, and a much more thorough pantsu inspection, so have a look for more ^^
Update: if you prefer browsing higher resolution pictures, I’ve made a post on figure.fm where you can enjoy almost twice the horizontal resolution without having to click each pic ^^
Update2: I aim to please. Some 1920 res versions, as requested by Divine Fang ^^ (click for the full size, of course)
