This figure came out a couple of months ago, but I ordered her from an American retailer (Otaku Fuel, if anybody is curious) so I received her only a few days ago. I also got a second Kotone Ousaka, which was a bit surprising. To my knowledge, Kotone was sold exclusively on Native’s website in Japan, but she’s gotten a regular release among retailers here in the States. I wonder why that is?
Anyway, I wrote Kotone’s review weeks ago so enough about her, let’s take a look at Nana here.
HARUHI: Alright, since our last movie was so great, our next movie has to be even better! And we need to make sure that it appeals to the Americans.
KYON: Why America?
HARUHI: Because all the best movies are big in America! If we can make a movie that hits it big over there, we can expand the SOS Brigade overseas. We’ll start the SOS Brigade North American Division! I’ll still be the leader, of course.
KYON: … I see. And just what sort of movie are you planning to make?
HARUHI (pacing in a circle): It has to be profound. It has to speak to the cultural sensibilities of Americans. It has to emphasize their rich history, their resiliency, their unshakeable passion for freedom and their love for life. And it has to have sex. And lots of violence. And sex. (looks up) I’ve got it!
KYON (thinking): Oh no.
HARUHI: The movie will be called … “Mikuru Asahina in Escape from Guantanamo Bay!”
Orchid Seed dispenses with pretension when it comes to understanding their niche in the figure industry: they make ero figures, and good ones at that. The Hustler girl, sculpted in a solid 1/7 scale, is the latest in Orchid Seed’s burgeoning lineup, and there is a lot to like about her.
As one might surmise from the above image, the following post should probably not be viewed in a professional environment.
