Magic the Gandhi from Rance 10 (NSFW)

%3

We’ll pick back up with another Native figure, this one considerably smaller than the last one we looked at. This haggard-looking young girl is Magic the Gandhi, an unlikely-named character from Alicesoft’s famous Rance series. In normal times she’s a magician, a princess, and a romantic interest of the series’ titular anti-hero. As can be surmised, the circumstances she is depicted in here are not indicative of normal times.

This figure is manufactured by FROG and distributed by Native. This isn’t the first figure by FROG that I have purchased, but the first was Queen Pharnelis and that figure is still in its shipping box somewhere here. Sculpted in 1/7 scale, Magic herself is about 17.5 centimeters in height but the frame that she is shackled to takes up considerably more space; it’s a bit under 24 centimeters in height and 14 centimeters in width. Speaking of those restraints, they all come as separate pieces and thus this figure requires substantial assembly to prepare for display, but we’ll talk about that a bit further down.

Magic does have an ostensibly non-explicit display mode, represented by the black panties and the belt bra shown up at the top, but nobody who purchases this figure is spending money to show her off that way. The real way to display her is entirely au naturel, the way she was seen in Rance 10.

Having not played Rance 10, I’m not sure what prompts this scene but having some familiarity with Alicesoft games I would guess that this is an optional bad end rather than Magic’s canonical fate. English speakers are actually supposed to be able to play this game someday as Mangagamer is localizing it, but I don’t recall hearing any news of their progress in recent times.

The figure shows a major difference from the artwork in that it lacks the bruises and other evidence of violence committed against Magic. Purists may not be thrilled by this change but it’s probably for the best; this figure is already in rather poor taste (though to be fair, the Rance series positively revels in poor taste and exults in its flaunting of social norms).

I didn’t actually recognize who this character was when I first saw the figure, mostly because it covers up Magic’s most obvious design element, her expansive forehead. That’s probably also for the best.

Anyone who prefers to have Magic go without her spectacles is going to be disappointed; her eyewear slots into a socket positioned squarely between her eyes.

One distinctive aspect of the artwork that was preserved are the tally marks scrawled on her abdomen, an obvious accounting of how many friends she has made.

Magic gets to sit on this toilet – at least the third miniature commode in my figure collection. That I can’t remember how many plastic toilets I have is a sign that both my memory is failing in my old age and that my figure collection is too large.

I found it easier to position her on the toilet with the seat raised up (the toilet doesn’t actually have a lid nor a water tank). I’m not sure if she’s supposed to be positioned that way but she seemed not to be able to reach the pegs in the base. Not that the base pegs were that useful, since they’re very small (they actually go into her big toes rather than the soles of her feet, which is a strange way to do things).

She comes with an extra accessory not depicted here – a stream of simulated semen dripping from her vagina. I’m not actually sure how to position it on the figure so that it stays put, or if that’s even possible. The instruction sheet seemed to provide guidance but I was not in a good humor while photographing this figure so I dispensed with it. At any rate, if you get your own Magic figure, you’ll have the opportunity to figure out how to show off Magic with her own special liquid.

This figure requires a great deal of setup to complete for display, far more than I really like to perform these days. Each of the chains connects to an S-shaped hook which neither holds the chain securely nor fastens to Magic’s cuffs and collar, so getting things to stay attached can be an aggravating process.

There were a couple more things – a pair of small simulated steel plates that I suppose are supposed to go on the base – that I didn’t include in the photographs here.

That said, it’s a worthwhile amount of annoyance as this figure does look pretty good. She’s a little smaller than I expected – she’s not a large-framed girl but even accounting for that, she appears about as petite as a 1/8 scale figure but that’s not really too important here. What’s more to like is the presentation and the themes that this figure espouses; we’ve seen a bevy of pervy porno figures from various manufacturers in the last few years but not many that look quite like this. Fans of figures of chained-up girls – not actually a popular theme amongst figure makers – will find a lot to like here.

    Seems like a pretty nice figure, and I like the base a lot. It’s a shame they didn’t add any semen accessories or anything, though I don’t know how you’d attach it in this case without doing something similar to the glasses (that’s a real shame, as I don’t like glasses generally.)

    Regarding Rance X, I think it will probably be a few years before we see it. Even if their main Rance translator didn’t quit about a year ago, they seem to want to stagger major releases a bit, so as not to have them compete with each other. According to their translation progress, they’re almost done with Rance 1/2, though I could see that being a smaller release. But they still have to release Rance Quest and Rance 9.

    It would be nice if they’d finally pick up Daiteikoku, though.

    No crotch shot? Seems like an unusual figure to not include one for.

    Glad to see the recent reviews! Looking forward to hopefully seeing more in 2020.

    Now this a real deal of H figure 8D , her “dead eyes” expression are nice to see, too bad the glasses slot is between her eyes 🙁 .
    the only thing(I think) she lacking is her body looks rather clean , except the mark on her stomach which indicated she already gangraped, she doesn’t have bruise or scratch like the Game scene , the toilet bowl also need some weathering .. I asking to much lol

    Ahaha …what is this ?
    I remember that figure from when it was open for preorders, didn’t expect to see it again.
    Rather odd to see an VN’s bad end scene as figure adaptation and this is really a bit hard.
    It reminds me of Giga Pulse, but Frog has a much better quality.

    While I don’t dislike the fantasy of a chained up girl by default, this figures makes me a bit sad I dare to say. The dead eyes are not so appealing and the body doesn’t look that inviting to me since she is thin as a stick. Would also be nicer to see her angry actually. I won’t comment on the toilet base XD. Anyway I like the chains
