The demon girl is the latest from E2046‘s ORI line. I didn’t plan on getting her at first – I don’t really like horns or animal ears or bunny rabbit hats on anime-style girls – but after some rational introspection and an entirely irrational examination of my bank balance, I decided why the heck not.

This demon girl is nominally based upon an illustration by well-known artist Shunya Yamashita, but E2046 has made numerous deviations from the source, and it would be difficult for someone unfamiliar with Yamashita’s picture to connect the two. For one, they gave her clothes. They also modified her boots, and I really like what they did, giving them a high heel and changing the original robotic, drab-grey design to something more elegant and medieval in character. Her face is also significantly altered; Yamashita’s characters have very recognizable faces and often sport sly or seductive expressions. This girl is apprehensive rather than sultry, contemplative rather than inviting.

Other changes include the position of her legs; her right leg is now crossed behind the left leg, which adds a bit more dynamism to the demon girl’s pose, and the shift of her left hand so that it is a bit higher alongside her face. The dragon is ditched, which works okay here; this demon girl looks like she wants to be left alone.

Paint is superb, as is usual with E2046’s pre-painted figures. The color of her boots is particularly outstanding, with the near-jet shade of violet on her thighs giving way to a lighter, lustrous hue on her lower legs. Her wings are matte and leathery and look perfect.

She comes with an ornate pillar to perch upon. The pillar is very dense and is solid enough that the demon girl won’t pitch over if bumped. A sturdy mounting rod connects the two; the rod projects about a centimeter out of the demon girl’s backside so anyone who wants to seat her on something other than the pillar will be out of luck, unless they sever the rod.

I hadn’t planned on getting her at first, but I’m glad I did. She looks fantastic, particularly when paired up with the seraphic Caroline. While they originate from disparate sources, they comprise a complementing pair and present an example for how angels and demons should be done.

    Wow!Youve got her?
    I was really,really teased by this figure but my bankaccount told me No.
    Its a great sculpt even though it derivates from the original source.While i would have prefered a bit more Shunya-esque expression Im pleased with the other tweaks.

    I really like the way you played with the shadows.Nice pictures! keep it up!

    I love figures that have personality, and this one definitely has that in spades.

    Thanks! I can’t help myself when it comes to their ORI figures. I’ve already got Salma preordered and I’m really looking forward to getting her. I’m looking forward to getting the Shunya-designed X-Men Rogue (hopefully) next month too.

    It’s a perfect figure together with the lighting and photography.

    I fall in love when I saw this one on your web, now that I have mine I must say it was truly an awsome figure and I’m happy to have bought this one. The first figure I buy online :).
