Review: Figma 086 Izumi Shizuno

December 22, 2010 6 comments

In the spotlight today is the 4th Se.Kirara girl to be released, Izumi Shizuno. This time I’ll be breaking Zai’s streak of reviewing the Se.Kirara line because, well, Izumi happens to be my favorite. An awesome shade of blue hair, short skirt, and big… proportions, yes. Sadly, this will probably mark the end of our Se.Kirara reviews since we will be passing on the final girl in the series, Miyuki Mana. But let’s see how Izumi and her accessories turns out!

After a week of entries, we have decided on who will be Aya’s new owner! I’m being really careful not to call this a ‘contest’ because there wasn’t really any criteria we judged on and well, the prize isn’t the greatest thing in the world, it’s a defective figma (although a very cute one with awesome accessories).

Review: Figma 080 Nozomi Akiyama

November 22, 2010 11 comments

Poor Nozomi, I’ve had her for about a month now but have only just managed to get around to reviewing her now! Nozomi is our third girl from the Se.Kirara eroge (we already have Yu Kawamura and Aya Kagura) and I was worried I’d start to tire of the Figma from Se.Kirara considering they all have very similar uniforms and I don’t know anything about the characters themselves at all! I needn’t have worried though, I find Nozomi just as endearing as both Yu and Aya.

Giveaway: Figma 078 Aya Kagura (Closed)

November 18, 2010 27 comments

Figma Aya

Closed – Winner will be announced later on this evening (AEST) in a post by Luthren then contacted for shipping details. Thank you everyone for your entries and good luck!

If you have read my Aya Kagura Figma review here, you’d know that we received our Aya with a few markings across the back of her hair and on her ribbon and also that AmiAmi were kind enough to send us a brand new Aya as a replacement!

Since we don’t have a use for two of the same Figma, we have decided to give the Figma I used in the review away!

We will cover shipping costs (including international) but please keep in mind that if you want insurance and tracking, you’ll have to pay for that yourself. We’ll be using the cheapest shipping method possible (so it’ll probably be slow!) and will not cover any customs costs (if they happen to be charged).

Please keep in mind that the Aya Figma we are giving away is used but apart from her markings, her overall condition is not bad. Please see my review for all the details on her! Aya will come with all of her accessories (the accessories themselves will be in mint condition since we’ll keep the original ones) and her box is in near mint condition.

If you want her, all you have to do is send us an email at plasticparfait[at]gmail[dot]com or leave a comment on this post and tell us why you’d like to have Aya! We’ll announce who gets her in a week or so!

Review: Figma 078 Aya Kagura

October 8, 2010 7 comments

Aya Kagura of Se.Kirara is the first figure we ordered based solely on her cuteness! Cuteness isn’t the only thing this Figma has going for it though as like Yu Kawamura, the Se.Kirara girl released before her (I reviewed Yu here), she comes with a load of adorable accessories. We pretty much preordered the cute blonde as soon as she went up at online figure store AmiAmi for 2380 yen. She took the crown of being our cutest Figma from the moment I unpackaged her but not all was well, infact, it was the most disappointed I’d ever been after opening a figure of any kind but in turn got to discover just how good AmiAmi’s customer service actually is.

Review: Figma 075 Yu Kawamura

September 29, 2010 12 comments

Yu Kawamura (or Yuu Kawamura from some sources) of Se.Kirara is one of the 4 Figma we ordered this month and one we nearly missed on due to indecisiveness! Preorders for her filled up rather quickly but we managed to find her over at HLJ for the full retail price of 2857 yen (around $35 AUD or $33-34 USD). One of the major selling points of Max Factory’s Se.Kirara Figma girls is most likely due to the accessories they come with and Yu is no exception as she comes with many adorable kitchen utensils. They’re compatible with most other figures from the Figma line and I gotta admit it’s why I was interested in getting her. But do I think that she has anything more than her accessories going for her? Yup, I really do think so!
