Ahh, it feels like it’s been a while since I reviewed a porno figure. Too long it has been. But to my great pleasure, I have a new one here, and it’s from the best ero figure maker in the business. New h-figure, the weather is great, payday is tomorrow, and I’ve got chili dogs for dinner, I can hardly ask for more.
Shoujo M is the latest figure in Native’s Creator’s Collection. She went up for preorder in June of last year, meaning that it took over ten months for her to go from solicitation to release. Amazing.
She doesn’t appear to have an actual name, and presumably the M means “maid,” as she’s decked out in an abbreviated anime maid outfit. Standing about 18 centimeters tall, she’s not a very large figure, although she’s ostensibly sculpted in 1/7 scale. She comes with a standard circular base but she doesn’t really need it to stay upright, as she also comes with a small dressing stool that features a depression that her leg slots into. She takes up much less space this way, so that’s the way I’m displaying her.
Shoujo M is based off of artwork by Hanaharu Naruko, as is Native’s upcoming Shoujo S figure. The figure is fairly faithful to the source, apart from her hair being a bit more flared out. The figure also lacks certain liquids that have been deposited on the blushing maid in the artwork. We’re probably better off this way, but there is no doubt that certain figure reviewers have their cans of condensed milk ready to remedy this omission.
Incidentally, and somewhat incongruously, the same artist did the artwork for the manga version of Kamichu! That’s a rather pronounced shift in subject material.
Shoujo M’s face is unusual in that her eyes are almost square-shaped and lack pupils. It looks a bit strange to me, perhaps even a bit perturbing, but I really like her facial expression, which shows off a good degree of discomfort that works great when snapping pictures of her with props and other figures.
I certainly have little to complaint about in regard to her sculpt. She’s trying to cover herself up with her arms, but she succeeds about as well as her clothing does. Note that unlike Kotone Ousaka, there aren’t any options to conceal her breasts; they’re going to stand out proud and exposed for the world to admire and if that’s not your thing, you’ll have to break out some masking tape or a Post-It note or something to improvise a covering.
Like Kotone, Shoujo M has a fantastic ass. I wish more figure manufacturers would sculpt figure asses like this.
Shoujo M comes with a small apron that gives her a modicum of dignity, but if that’s not to your liking you can deny her that by separating her at the waist and removing it.
One unfortunate aspect of her sculpt is that her genitalia is not particularly prominent. An even more lamentable detail is that she doesn’t have a realistically-sculpted anus. This lack is not particularly surprising but it’s disappointing nonetheless. A figure like this should have a realistically-sculpted anus. This sort of thing is important. Important, I tell you.
She comes with this shattered plate, which is quite literally shattered. It comes in pieces and I suppose you can strew them wherever you plan to display her. I think this accessory is now the leading candidate for accessory that I am most likely to lose in the future, so I put it back in the box.
Note that Shoujo M does not come with a golden dildo or St. Andrew’s cross or chains. Sorry.
Kotone Ousaka is a fantastic figure and I’m sure that Shoujo S will be just as good, but neither of them evince any sort of personality; they stare blankly out into space, with no expression of discomfiture at all the people ogling their private bits. Shoujo M, in contrast, is visibly distressed, vainly trying to hide herself with an expression that conveys both embarrassment and resignation. I think the body language that she gives off is my favorite aspect of this figure.
It’s been a long wait for Shoujo M but I think she was worth it. Native’s figures are consistently excellent, and about the only thing I could ask for is a slightly larger size. And maybe a realistically-sculpted anus. But even without either of those I’m still very pleased with this figure and I’m very much looking forward to Shoujo S, Chie, and the unfortunately-named Trunk Girl.
There’s a review of her up on foo-bar-baz. I’m not aware of any English-language websites that have done a photoshoot of her at this time.
I really ought to use Aldra in more figure shoots; I can think of a lot of fun ways to use her. Okay, maybe it’s only one way, but it’s still fun.
