Miyafuji Yoshika ~ 宮藤 芳佳
Posted by meronpan on February 18, 2010
Still in Tokyo, yet another review I actually managed to write up before ^_^
Pantsu witches is an amazing series. I mean… you’ve got chicks flying around in their pantsu shooting guns. What could be more amazing than that? Well maybe pantsu that fly by themselves… but this series takes itself much more seriously I’d say ^^;
miyafuji yoshika, the main character, but alas not my favorite ^^; got her mostly ‘cuz i thought i’d collect the entire set at the time ^^;;
Was happy that mio & miyafuji had significantly less parts to fuss with. Must’ve taken me like 30 minutes just to unbox and assemble nanoha ^^;;
Though she’s only 1/8 miyafuji’s rifle is nearly as tall as her. Adds quite a bit of height.
Going once around… you’ll notice I opted for the discreet propellers rather than the motion blurred disk.
…though I think i prefer the motion blurred look ^^;
The strike units are very nicely detailed, which is unfortunately contrasted with some (imo) plain seifuku ^^;
A closer look at a strike unit…
I like the clear light blue base. Doesn’t seem to stick out as much and doesn’t take your attention away from the figure.

使用機材 零式艦上戦闘脚二二型甲 – mmm curse this specialized vocab. Basically it’s a description of her strike unit – zero-style warship grade(?)/version(?)/style(?) 22? something like that ^^;
使用武器 九九式二号二型改13mm機関銃 – her weapon… 99 style #2, type 2 modified 13mm machine gun … ??? something like that hahaha ahhhh and i’m supposed to be taking the lvl 1 jlpt this year ^^;;;
In case you haven’t seen them in other reviews, pictured above are the alternate propellers.
Not really sure what’s up with the seams in her seifuku. They’re so prevalent it almost seemed intentional? ^^;
I don’t remember… did they ever explain/try to justify why the ears and tail sprouts out? Besides the obvious fan service reason? ^^;;
Another look at her rifle/machine gun
Was afraid of breaking off the fine spike thing (which i assume is for aiming?) ^^;
again, though she’s not my favorite character from the series, i think alter did a pretty good job with her
You actually have to take off one arm to get her gun in place, was a little more fuss than I expected but nothing like shuraki stuff :P
pants…iya, mizugi ne
Somehow I need to come up with a system for more varied backgrounds ^^; If I ever go flash I think that’ll open up a lot of possibilities… gobos and gels ftw … spensive though ^^;
aaand one more shot to wrap this up with~
Had meant to translate this review too but feeling a bit under the weather (gads, it’s the day before my flight, what terrible timing orz) so gonna have to stay with english ^^;
If you like yoshika i think this is a pretty solid buy. Seams on her uniform might bother some, but if you can look past ’em the other details are nice and I think her face was done really well (one of the more important aspects for me, personally). Given her character I think I prefer a non-action/shooting pose so that turned out fine as well.
