Al・Azif ~ inoue takuya version
Posted by meronpan on August 29, 2010
Despite having picked up Alter’s metatron (ugh, forgive my horrible white balance from back then ^^;;), still haven’t partaken in an Demonbane. As such al azif was able to convince a purchase out of me on execution alone ^^ Really liked the preview shots and orchid seed didn’t disappoint! Little warning, Al Azif has some nsfw castoff!
I believe this is my first Orchid Seed figure. Think the only reason I don’t have many more of their figures is that usually they’re a bit too far on the ero side of the spectrum for my collection ^^;
Found it hilarious that 75% of the box is for her stand and ribbons ^^;
Speaking of which I was not pleased to see that I would have to attach a shitton of ribbons to her ^^;;; And they’re all different! Luckily they did include some assembly instructions but still made me nervous given my history with little parts ^^;
Her base is really neat… but unfortunately it was actually a bigger pain than all the ribbons! For some reason the book doesn’t really attach neatly even though it looks everything’s lining up. To make things worse the book is hollow (or feels as such), so I was afraid to apply too much pressure and possible crack something…
After finally getting the book down I was also surprised to find the pegs for her feet were also really hard to get attached ;_;
Wasn’t able to get then in without twisting them on one at a time first… and even then I ended up detaching the book from the base on accident… gads it was like 30 minutes before I had her assembled!!!
Thankfully that’s all over with… at least until I move again ^^;
A bit of a departure from the usual anime character proportions… al azif has a bit more meat on her bones than the average gal :P
From what little I do know of her, Al Azif is normally of more loli proportions… not sure if this is a re-imagining of her character or some sort of transformation (in which her clothes stay the same size ^^;).
All the ribbons seemed a bit overboard when I first saw her in the box but after getting everything attached I like how she looks ^^
Anyone able to tell me what the funny looking wing things on her back are? ^^;
Ah well, on to some close up shots…
Those pantsu really look stretched to the limit ^^;
Bit of a chip or something on the paint but unless you’ve got your face planted in her crotch I doubt it’d be noticeable :P
Moving on to less ecchi shots…
Love the detail on her finger nails ^^ Crop from above pic:
One of her feet has this weird standoff that doesn’t firmly attach to the base… made getting that peg to fit even more of a problem ;_;
You can see it here not quite resting flat ;_;
Other foot attaches well enough after you finally get it on the peg.
Really liked the base in the preview shots, wish it fit together better but otherwise pretty satisfied.
Nice long hair~
Decent detail in her outfit~
Like her expression a lot for some reason
Time for some oppai~
You have to remove a couple parts of her outfit to get to her bust but once you do you can remove it (in my case with much difficulty orz) and replace with the bare oppai.
Personally won’t be using it since not only would that creep out my roommates way too much but it also just looks sort of weird that her outfit only got destroyed in one place like that ^^;
Alrighty, I think that pretty much covers her oppai option ^^;
Triple ahoge ftw
Some high angle shots~
And low angle~
Top pic w/small dof:
Nice 1/7 release with good execution and an interesting base… a bit pricey at 9800 yen though I got her at amiami for 7520.
Didn’t see to much of her around, I suppose not as popular? ^^;
