Shironeko - The Only Reason to Watch Oreimo

So a new season of Ore no Imouto Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai is in full swing and I think I'm starting to hate it haha. I usually don't dislike many anime and can at least find something to like in most works but Kirino is really annoying me in this one haha, and It's not like I liked the first season that much more or anything. Why the hell do I even watch this? Oh yeah Ruri Gokou.

Through the years I have taken many pictures of Ruri Gokou, and based on the amount I guess I could be a bit of a fan of her. "Who the hell is Ruri Gokou?" you say, she's Kuroneko, or uh Shironeko in this case, though you'd never hear her real name from anyone 2D or 3D.

This time I got a SEGA prize figure of her and she is one of the many I came to acquire by actually playing the god-forsaken machines.

I didn't really notice until  I was editing the pictures but this rendition of Kuroneko is ridiculously cute. There's also the fact that I just finished catching up on the latest episode where she comes out in this exact outfit so I might be the tiniest bit biased.

Nah, she really is ridiculously cute.

As it is to be expected from prize figures she's pretty rough around the edges, sometimes literally. You can see that the little tie in her summer dress is a kinda mashed together.

Even if her production quality isn't top notch, she still seems to have an awesome sculpt and expression. I knew there was a reason I would throw money at the machine to get her! Besides blatant fanboyism.

Apart from the rather nasty seam line between her body and her dress, you can see in this picture the slight curve of her chest that fits perfectly with her petite frame. Ah, there are all sorts of wonderful breasts people in this world.

By far my favorite part of this figure is her face. At first I didn't really think she looked that much like Kuroneko, she looked a bit too wide-faced to me, however I've since then revised my opinion. Her cheeks have a slight puffiness that houses the ever so cute blush that she and all other Oreimo girls seem to have. Her eyes fall somewhere between sharp and sweet, much like her personality in the show and beside them is her iconic mole. Ack, I'm falling in love.

You really can't see her back with all that hair getting in the way, nor is it anything very elaborate but I very much like it nonetheless.

In the anime she wears the very hat! I was a bit disappointed to learn that her hat is pretty much glued to her hand and you can't put it on her. You can also see the little frills on her dress which are pretty well done.

This would be a more fetishistic shot if her toes weren't melded together so obviously.

Base is simple and to the point, nothing wrong here. A literal rough around the edge in plain view.

"I will have a different name to call you in two months."

Close up of the frills. This rendition of her gives her a generous, slightly plump and delicious thighs. I have no idea how she would be in the anime since I don't remember getting this type of fan service from her. You can also see her fingers are pretty well done.

I get the feeling that Oreimo is going for a full-blown siscon ending,  you can really get that vibe considering many of the lines between Kirino and Kyosuke can be taken with double meaning. Though I guess that is part of the appeal of this series, it keeps the tension up at the expense of the viewer's sanity. All this is what I gather from the anime alone as I have not read the LN or manga. Well here's hoping there's less Kirino and more Kuroneko, man this is gonna be one annoying season ahahaha.

 

Till Next Time~

Asuka Langley Prize Figure - Crane Games Will Suck Your Blood

Hey Everyone today I bring you a figure that I have unexpectedly come into owning: Asuka Langley, and since I assume she is from the new movies she would be Asuka Shikinami Langely. She actually holds a bit of sentimental value because...

I actually won her myself in a crane game! Ok the term "won" is making me a bit guilty here. I did indeed play a crane game till I got her. However the attendant helped me a bit after he saw me struggling with to get her.

Crane games however are way more rigged than they appear. They tantalize you with boxes seemingly half in the air and colorful bars adorning the case. You are sucked in and play it the game like an idiot and before long you realize it's tricks.

The boxes are carefully position so that they get stuck at the slightest touch, the seemingly shortest path to make the figure fall is actually the worst possible way to get it. The innocuous bars that adorn the case are covered in rubber, and any attempt to slide the figure off will prove futile.

However you are already too deep in, the game has suckered you out of few thousand yen, might as well blow another thousand and get the damn figure a millimeter away from falling. Thankfully though, I think the staff is trained to help you if they see you struggling with a figure for too long. Both me and a friend who also played a crane game for a figure were helped by kind attendants to finish getting the figures. Maybe we just got kind attendants, who knows.

Crane laments aside. Asuka is not a bad looking figure. She has the usual roughness of a prize figure and in truth I've seen better Asuka figures out there but she' s a keeper.

I've always wanted an Asuka figure however I never really found any that really satisfy me. I'm very critical of the things I'm fond of, and the things I don't like as much I don't really want to get. On the good side this attitude is good for my wallet.

An interesting thing that was pointed out to me is that's she is wearing her school uniform and not her plug suit. Guess its hard to compete with a vacuum packed leave-nothing-to-the-imagination suit but fully clothed girls have their charms too!

She still has a couple nice details for a prize figure. I especially like her hair ornament brain wave thingers. The have that plug suit shine and are pretty well accentuated.

I didn't like her face at first, specifically the mouth seemed a little too roughly made. Looking at these pictures I might have to change my opinion. Her blue eyes are a striking contrast to her signature red hair. I'm even starting to like the mouth a bit.

There is one weird thing about her sculpt though. Her feet have this concave form to them, it almost feels as if they were deformed or if she's wearing clown shoes. I tell myself that that's just because she's made from old style designs to make myself feel better.

Well I just had to take one of these didn't I? It's actually quite impossible to take a panty shot from the front, the base gets in the way before you can see anything. Maybe if you had a smaller camera to snake your way between the base.

When I won her they have me this bag with this really neat illustration of all 3 Eva pilot girls, I might have wanted the bag more than the figure hah. Unfortunately in my eagerness after winning I forced it in too roughly and ended up tearing up right through Mari's face and her glasses, the box I mean.

'Till next time~
