Shihoudou Narika, Choukousennin Ver. ~ 四方堂 ナリカ 超昂閃忍Ver.
Posted by meronpan on September 6, 2009
If you’re not familiar with her, it’s probably because you’re not ecchi enuf :P Links likely to be nsfw, narika’s thong as well ^^;
Narika hails from 超昂閃忍ハルカ (choukou sennnin haruka) ~ Beat Blades Haruka, an eroge by Alicesoft and recently released eroanime. Hadn’t expected this follow up release by Alter, seeing as how haruka had been ready to order just 2 months after the game went on sale late last February (2008). Yet again I would like to voice my desire for a subaru figure!!! (she’s the third heroine in the game). At any rate, back to the girl at hand!
Unlike haruka, who wields her trademark kunai (?), narika comes equipped with a… I have no idea what it is.
I admit I wasn’t so thorough in getting through every last bit of the game, so I have no idea if her weapon here is unique to this figure or what. Whatever it is it gives a nice mechamusume flavor to the figure, which I love ^^
Once around, shall we?
The huge weapon thingy actually has some pegs and attach to narika’s bow, which in turn is affixed to her back.
Once you’ve gotten everything secured you then have to get her hand around the handle…
But luckily her fingers are flexible so it’s not too bad.
According to the text I guess it’s actually a “Beat Blaze Assault Arms Unit”.
The blaze part at least would go along with narika’s fire based attacks.
Again, not sure if I remember correctly, but I thought narika’s signature weapon was a huge shuriken?
The more I write about this thing the more I wonder just how the heck you attack with it ^^;;
Seems like you could slice with this side, but being on the rear of such a large contraption, not sure how that’d work ^^;
Lots of nice details on this weapon thing.
Wonderful execution that you can expect from alter.
Some sort of crazy utility belt? And I assume the 02 numbering is ‘cuz haruka would be 01?
Behold the power of a macro lens trained on…
completely uninteresting armband! woo! *ahem* moving on…
Some tiny imperfections on her hair, but I can barely see them with my naked eye so no biggie.
pantsu time, brace yourself:
Think I actually commented on her pantsu last time I was talking about beat blades haruka… in that, yes, this is her normal battle outfit:
I guess that part kunoichi and part eroge – defeat your opponent by distracting them with your ero-power ^^;
Vocab review: 丸見え＝＝まるみえ＝＝completely visible.
Was hard to frame this next shot in such a way that it would draw your attention to the right place… just trying to give you a better look at her back…
Do you already have haruka? The base design will look familiar…
To counter haruka’s oppai, narika fulfills the pettanko role.
Kotobukiya actually did a release of narika also, which I also have.
Koto’s was based on the cg above and was done pretty well… I think it’s my love for kunoichi that pushed me to make this purchase ^^; You might also notice the coloring scheme is different… not sure where then red/white scheme came from… does narika go into some super mode with that crazy weapon and new outfit? I totally don’t remember.
Looking into getting a tripod upgrade so that I’m not stuck with horizontally oriented photos all the time (current one can’t support the weight shooting vertical ^^;;)… luckily narika’s weapon lent itself to the horizontal layout.
And the obligatory haruka combo shot ^^
Really like how haruka looks… makes me want to redo my old review ^^;
If you like beat blades haruka, pettanko, pink hair, kunoichi, mecha-ish elements… alter’s narika is the figure for you!! Extremely satisfied.
Be sure to stop by Tentacle Armada for a more artistic review! Check out Kodomut for an awesome outdoor photo session! Oh yes, and if you’re interested in the story of beat blades haruka (and/or a subaru figure), stop by wolfheinrich’s world!
Next review will be kanu! No, she’s not 1/4, but her packaging certainly gives you that impression ^^;
1/4 nanoha, 1/8 miku, 1/8 moka included for comparison.
