Blast from the past

Do you know about Yotsubato? Yotsubato is a great series of books made by Azuma, the same person who did Azumanga! It’s a great story through the childhood experiences of a little foreign girl named Yotsuba.  It keeps the comedy from Azumanga, and its really easy to read in Japanese! Now onto my figure review!

In anticipation to the release of Lucky Star on blu-ray, today I will be looking at Kagami: OVA version! In the last Lucky Star episode, the Lucky Star OVA, Kagami is in a dream sequence as Hatsune Miku.  To celebrate she was released as a figma, alongside a nendoroid. I don’t have the nendoroid, but I do have the figma!

Since these are the earlier generation of figma what I first noticed was the lack of accessories, and the larger size!  Their faces are almost as big as nendoroid faces!  The Racing Miku figma I reviewed earlier had tiny faces!

Another difference were that the joints were stiffer, as well as harder to change.  A few times I thought I was going to break a piece off.  There was a problem with one of the screws for the stand, and that problem was rust! I’m not sure what humidity levels this box has been through, but clearly the figmas of the past are really different from today’s figmas.

However, I did notice more detail, and they are a bit more photogenic because of the larger faces.  The paint job seems to be nice without any jagged pieces or bleeding. I’d agree that it’s one of the better Hatsune Miku figures!
