Happy Black Friday to everybody. After far too long of a break, we’ll take a look at yet another bunnygirl. Truth be told, I don’t particularly like taking photographs of FREEing’s bunnygirls because they’re too large for me to easily photograph them, and yet I keep buying bunches of them, and this discontinuity is in some part responsible for the lack of reviews in recent months – though admittedly, the larger part of this dearth is due to me grinding in Epic Seven and spending far too much time watching the news. The former activity is still ongoing with no end in sight but I don’t need to obsess over the latter nearly as much now. Anyway, with those excuses out of the way, we’ll take a quick look at Jibril here.
I know virtually nothing about No Game No Life aside from that it’s a both an isekai and a light novel-derived show, and I’m not favorably inclined towards anime derived from either sort of source. It should then come as no surprise that I bought this figure purely for its enticing pose and overall agreeable appearance.
This figure is manufactured by FREEing and was released in January of 2020. She measures about 27 centimeters in length and around 15 centimeters in height. No base is provided or needed, though no support struts are provided for her wings either; more on that in a bit. The wings are a separate piece and though it’s been a while since I unboxed this figure (and took these photographs; I’ve been sitting on these pictures for over four months), I seem to recall that inserting the wings into her back was something of a pain. She comes with one additional accessory, a transparent halo-like piece. It’s not really optional as dispensing with it leaves an unsightly socket in the side of her head.
The slinky pose may be the highlight of this figure but Jibril’s face is also quite pleasing. She’s flashing a playful smile while glancing sideways. Her yellow and pink-colored eyes and cross-shaped pupils also add visual interest made more obvious by the large size of this figure.
Jibril’s bust size also impresses, hanging in a way that makes it obvious her bunnysuit is inadequate to the task of preserving her modesty.
A fair number of FREEing’s bunnygirls are posed down on all fours. This makes them a little harder to display as they consume far more shelf space than a more conventionally-posed figure but the appeal is undeniable. The sexiness of Jibril’s pose is intensified by her sharply-arched back, with her torso pushed low to the ground and her rump proudly lifted up for all to admire.
The sculpting work around her ass and crotch is also quite nice. From this view we can also see her wings. Some people have said that they tend to sag over time, which is a little disconcerting. My figure seems to not have this problem thus far but I might try to improvise some support pylons with a 3D printer or something.
Here’s another gratuitous view of Jibril’s leotard and pantyhose-covered backside. Speaking of the pantyhose, FREEing has been re-releasing a number of their older bunnygirls without the fishnets. I actually prefer the look of the figures without the pantyhose; I think the bare legs are more pleasing to the eye and it negates the risk of the fabric staining the plastic underneath. However, Jibril’s re-issue has a slightly different color scheme and facial expression, and in those respects I like the look of the original better.
Here’s Jibril’s head ornament, next to a bunny ear …
… and her leg tattoo. Someone familiar with the source material will have to tell me what both of these things represent as I have no idea what they signify.
Most of FREEing’s bunnygirl figures are of similar construction quality and of similar style, and Jibril isn’t really an exception. What does make Jibril stand out is her sexy pose, shapely body, and appealing color scheme. This is a great figure that I do not regret buying at all.
