Embrace Japan Diabolus Inclinatus Desdemona

NSFW Figure Review: Diabolus Inclinatus Desdemona by Embrace Japan

Halloween has come (and gone!) which means it’s time to call out the spirits. In early October I received my eagerly anticipated pre-order of Embrace Japan’s Diabolus Inclinatus Desdemona. Everything about her screamed “Halloween” so I took the whole month thinking of how to set up this shoot. A couple of pumpkins and a boatload of dried moss later, I finally have a figure review!

Sigrid of the Thorn by Embrace Japan

NSFW Figure Review: Sigrid of the Thorn by Embrace Japan

It’s been nearly four full months since my last honest-to-goodness figure review! I’ve shot some smaller photo sets since then, but I think it’s time I got back to what I do best reasonably well.

Leviathan by Hobby Japan/Amakuni

NSFW Figure Review: Leviathan by Hobby Japan/Amakuni

Seriously, this review is pretty NSFW. Sometimes, you see a figure and you just goddamn love it. That’s pretty much what happened to me with Hobby Japan’s Leviathan. If you were to make a list of things I fetishize in character design, Leviathan checks almost all the boxes: devil girl, single fang, tsundere expression, exposed midriff, the all-important zettai ryouiki, and just that little bit of pinch on her thighs from the stockings. The only things missing are glasses, twin tails, and being featured in Evangelion.

Duram Sherif by Embrace Japan (33)

NSFW Figure Review: Duram Sherif by Embrace Japan

One thing I don’t like is when figures come with too many small pieces that you need to assemble. Usually with the figures I buy, the end result is worth it. But it makes me hold off on unboxing and reviewing the figure – especially if there are multiple configurations like Good Smile Company’s Needa. I think Embrace Japan set the record in August with their Iron Princess Duram Sherif figure, which comes with 13 separate pieces not including the body and base.

Sonico by Gift

Figure Review: Sonico by Gift

In case you didn’t know, Sonico is the mascot of Nitroplus, a company that makes visual novels and porn games (a.k.a. eroge). It must not take much to garner a following in Japan, because the explosion of Sonico’s popularity is inexplicable otherwise. Good Smile Company is making a Nendoroid of her, and in the figure world that’s the equivalent of getting your own HBO series.

Charlotte E. Yeager by Alter

Figure Review: Charlotte E. Yeager by Alter

As I’ve often lamented, the problem with most women is that they don’t have airplanes for legs. There are many benefits to having airplane legs: increased mobility, making cool noises when you’re getting ready to go, and having a great excuse for not ever wearing pants. It’s strange that it’s 2012 and scientists haven’t yet figured out a way to combine miniature airplanes with women’s legs. So for the time being, we’ll have to leave that in the fictional world of Strike Witches.

Siggy by MegaHouse

NSFW Figure Review: Siggy (Shiggy? Sigi? Sigui?) by MegaHouse (Hobby Japan exclusive version)

Some time ago, my friend told me he couldn’t access Makigumo. After some investigation, he found that his university had blocked this site after categorizing it as pornography. Well… challenge accepted.

Xiao-Mei by Max Factory

Figure Review: Xiao-Mei by Max Factory

It’s been a while since I last did a full on review, so I went to my shelf to see what I could shoot. Max Factory’s Xiao-Mei stood out because she’s so damn adorable. How could you not like that Tony Taka face? Xiao-Mei hails from Shining Hearts, which has been getting a lot of exposure recently in the figure world. I haven’t played any of the Shining games but they must be big in Japan.

Asuka Langley Soryu by Yamato

Figure Review: Asuka Langley Soryu by Yamato

There’s no secret about it: I’m a huge Evangelion fan. It seems strange, then, that I didn’t have any fixed-pose figures of any of the Eva characters until yesterday (though I have plenty of action figures). The problem is that most Eva PVC figures feature one of the female pilots in her plugsuit, striking some sort of pose for a nonexistent camera. This doesn’t bother me for most characters, but the Eva characters need more. Maybe it’s because I’m so used to seeing them, but a fixed-pose Eva figure needs to bring more to the table than a good sculpt and paint job.

DC Comics Bishoujo Supergirl by Kotobukiya

Figure Review: DC Comics Bishoujo Supergirl by Kotobukiya

The end of July will lead to an onslaught of figures which will probably be tempered by delays. In any case it’ll bring more than the June drought I’ve been suffering through. The first of the July figures to arrive is Kotobukiya’s Supergirl, from the DC Bishoujo line.

Marvel Bishoujo Ms. Marvel by Kotobukiya

Figure Review: Marvel Bishoujo Ms. Marvel by Kotobukiya

Drawing from that ever-fertile reservoir of scantily-clad, busty women, today I review a figure from American comics. Kotobukiya has been collaborating with Shunya Yamashita and Marvel Comics on their Marvel Bishoujo figure line. Last month their combined talents created Ms. Marvel, a character normally associated with The Avengers.

Aya by Alter

Figure Review: Aya by Alter

Aya (no last name I guess) hails from The OneeChanbara VorteX, which got the unfortunate translation to Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad for its US release. I haven’t played it, but I’m guessing it’s the kind of game that reinforces the belief that gamers are immature. It certainly reinforces the idea that otaku or media from Japan are obsessed with sex, violence, and objectifying women. In some way I’d like to believe that the creators want us to admire them in their audacity. Bikini girls fighting zombies is pretty close to the line. Give her a pair of swords and a cowboy hat, and you push it far enough past the line that it becomes immune to criticism. That was probably the hope, anyway. But what can I say? From an eye-candy perspective, I like what I like.
