Ayako Hiiragi from Walkure Romanze Re:tell (Daiki Kougyou Version) (NSFW)

Ayako Hiiragi figure

After looking at Bertille a few days ago, we’ll continue our examination of Daiki Kougyou’s Walkure Romanze figures by taking a look at Ayako, the elder girl of the series. This figure was released in July of 2017, after Celia, Mio, Bertille, and Akane, making her the most recent of Daiki’s lineup to be released. She was an odd candidate to receive a figure adaptation, being that she was very much an ancillary character in the original visual novel and anime, and lead girls Noel and Lisa hadn’t yet gotten figures (Noel will be getting a figure version early next year, whereas apparently nobody loves Lisa). That said, she actually got another figure, sold on Native’s store, which came out just the other week; that one is pretty lewd, with her having her ass way up in the air. I didn’t buy it, unfortunately, so this one will have to suffice.

Ayako is the school nurse of the institution attended by the series’ characters; as such, and being the oldest girl in the game, she naturally has the largest breasts, as is the convention in visual novels and anime. She’s also a former knight, which is why she is wearing armor here, and she runs a cafe called Tart Time, which serves as a hangout for the younger characters. She’s also the cousin of the protagonist Takahiro Mizuno and serves as a romantic option in Walkure Romanze Re:tell, making their relationship quite incestuous.

This figure is manufactured by Daiki Kougyou in 1/6 scale, as are all of the figures in this line. Ayako is about 28.5 centimeters in height. The sculptor is Toshirou, the same guy who designed Celia and Bertille, and thus she is thus thickly built in terms of body physique, which is certainly a high point of this figure for those who like that sort of thing.

Toshirou’s style has its own idiosyncrasies, meaning that his figures are often not all that faithful to the original source material. That’s the case here, being that you probably couldn’t tell that this character comes from Komori Kei’s illustrations (whereas the BINDing figure sold by Native is easily discernible as being from his work). I don’t think her face looks quite as pretty as Celia’s or Bertille’s, though her little smile is still cute.

Like pretty much every figure in this series, the swimsuit looks bad; it doesn’t fit well, with the gaps between clothing and skin being absurdly obvious. The thong doesn’t actually run between her legs, which doesn’t look great but does make it easy to remove, which is what I recommend doing.

Ayako is stoutly built in this adaptation but her thickness is a little less conspicuous here than with Celia or Bertille due to the sinuous curve of her body. On her own, I think her pose looks a little awkward just because the way she’s leaning looks a bit unnatural, but with one or more of the other Daiki figures I think her pose looks more fitting; the other girls have more relaxed stances and I think her showy pose contrasts well against them.

When she’s wearing her swimsuit, her left hand is meant to tugging her waistband away frmo her body in a flirty manner; when she’s nude, obviously her hand isn’t pulling anything, but her fingers look like they’re making a hang-ten gesture, which I think is cute.

Her posture also provides a contrast to her armor, which is noticeably less ornate than Celia’s or Bertille’s. It’s not entirely plain, as it has some nice gold trim and overlapping shells on some part (I think her shoulder armor looks sort of like a trilobyte). However, the detail is far less noticeable than it is with Bertille’s. I suppose that makes some sense as Ayako doesn’t have nearly as flashy a personality as Bertille.

As expected, Ayako’s breasts are the largest of all the Walkure Romanze figures produced by Daiki. I don’t recall that that’s the case in the game’s graphics, but the size of her bust is noticeably larger when the figures are placed together. That’s not unusual and thus aficionados of larger bust sizes will find much to be happy about here.

Some of Daiki Kougyou’s figures feature a yellow tint to their skin tone; Celia and Bertille certainly do. Akane has a noticeably paler skin tone that looks a little more natural.

One smaller note: at least on my figure, the heel of her right foot didn’t seem to quite contact the base, which meant she wobbled a lot. I didn’t feel too comfortable about that, since that might lead to her falling over and snapping the base pegs, so I stuck a small ball of adhesive putty under her heel to stabilize her. It’s not really an elegant solution but it does keep her stable.

This is a pretty nice figure that looks quite nice in the company of Daiki’s Walkure Romanze girls. I don’t think she looks quite as appealing alone, nor does she look as good as her peers, though the combination of plate armor and nude body is still pretty attractive, I think. She’s a good pickup for anyone who likes this sort of theme, or who is collecting figures of the girls from this series.

  1. I’m surprised by the color they use to simulate the metal of the armors
    I love the figures in this series Walkure Romanze

  2. Zero says:

    In the visual novel she doesnt have the biggest bust of the girls, but they sculpted her figure with the biggest bust. I guess older means you have grown more?
