Review of the absolutely gorgeous 1/8 scale Maryan Senpai from Kotobukiya - this particular version is the Magical Maryan version. Also just learned that there is a Metamorphosis version too thats out in May.

Been spending a load of time with comrades at Kotobukiya lately which could explain the sudden wall of SAFS in the office ^^;

This has to be one of the nicest Kotobukiya releases in my collection so far - paintwork, sculpt, dynamic pose and cuteness is just awesome.

The straw-look-alike thingy is supposed to be some sort of stardust swirling around her bod - you can see a better 2D version by hovering over the last thumbnail on this page.

Have not played the eroge ToHeart2 Another Days but I think that this version of Maryan is from that series.
Love this angle.

Nice Futomomo.
Futomomo [太もも] = thighs.

3275972261_bdf2db721c_o

Nice Oshiri.
Oshiri [お尻] = bottom.

Hmmmm. Was going to teach you another word but I think I'll leave that to member Tenrou to teach you one day ^^;

3276792248_7b6398b3f0_o

Just love the pose - full of energy and vitality.
Genki ga Ippai [元気がいっぱい] = Full of energy/vitality.

3276792628_e45428e56a_o

Did I just hear a fart?
Onara [おなら] = Fart.

3275973623_45da94441a_o

Small but well formed.
Pechapai [ぺちゃぱい] = small "eyes."

3276793282_d5caeb1ee1_o

The swirly thing comes separate - you split her in half which enables you to stick the swirl in place.

3275974267_06faa969ac_o

Kawaii!

3276793952_231d17d03c_o

Not sure if it was needed but there are holes in her wrist and ankle with small slots that hold the swirl in place.

3276794246_38d7878dfd_o

And cast off - she wearing a white sukumizu.
Sukumizu [スク水] = School Mizugi. Mizugi = Swimwear.

3276794522_dbd398cb25_o

Nearly forgot - video from ToHeart 2 Another Days below - I think this is the opening from the eroge but not 100% sure.

3275975459_c7a78b2caa_o

Wouldn't you love to be bitten by her fang?

3276795538_ca45f5d3c5_o

Do you have a fave ToHeart girl? Mines still Konomi-chan.

3276795904_60d59198b9_o

And the question I wanted to ask today - how many pictures do you prefer me to take for one figure review? I know some other folks only take a couple or so.
I do try to take shots from as many different angles as possible and if there are similar shots its because a small adjustment brings out a different look and feel to the shot.

3275976821_fa25f78719_o

Lovely paintwork and detail.

3275977029_fa08d1debd_o

Folks in Japan can pick up Maryan from Amazon for 5,365 yen - free shipping to all parts of Japan.

3276796854_070ea21531_o

This one in the Wallpaper Pool.

3276797436_162ac39245_o

This is Maryan's new spot - my fave figures are placed closet to me. Do you arrange your figures the same way with your fave ones beside you?

3275978193_9848bb0a36_o

When I'm not looking, Mirai Saber would pic up Maryan and play with her - Dollfie sized figure.
