    Sweet! I really regret not ordering Koyori sooner. I’ve got her on pre-order at the moment but demand’s been so high, I may not be able to get one anyway. :-(

    I hope your preorder pulls through, this is goodness that really deserves to be spread around. I wish I could provide more encouraging availability information. ;_;

    Awesome pics. I preordered from a site but it hasn’t been shipped yet but another site that I ordered from just shipped it today and they sold out already! I was real lucky to get her. I can’t wait to review her. I hope you don’t mind me linking your page to my future review of her. I also hope you don’t mind me linking your site in my site in the next update. Btw, great photos. ^^

    By all means, feel free to link away. Thanks for the feedback, and I hope your Koyori ships soon. Nice work on your site!

    I came here courtesy of Kidfenris, who recounted the fascinating tale of Koyori, whose toy sold out in mere hours despite being tied to a pretty rotten game. Thanks for the photos– they’ve filled me with a perverse desire to find one of these and put it on my desk at work, just to see what my co-workers would say about it before I was fired.
    This is also my first time visiting your site. It’s very impressive, I like your play on the Communist Manifesto in the “Otaku Wave” book review. Are you the same Shingo from the Somethingawful forums?

    >>I came here courtesy of Kidfenris, who recounted the fascinating tale of Koyori, whose toy sold out in mere hours despite being tied to a pretty rotten game.
    My initial attraction to the figure was its Tsukasa Jun design, and I’m guessing I may not be alone in that; I did read up on the game afterwards and came to the same conclusion Kidfenris did. I’ve heard the initial Sengoku Ace and the later Sengoku Blade are significantly better than its latest PSP incarnation, which was apparently put out by a new production team.
    Oh, and to scrape together any last tattered shreds of artistic integrity I may have remaining I should note that I preordered this before I knew the kimono was removable. -_-;;

    Guilty as charged. It’s been awhile since I last stopped by, I wonder how things are going over there…
    I’m happy to hear that you like what you see here, and a bit (pleasantly) surprised; I don’t know if I’ll ever quite come to grips with the fact that people actually read this thing. Please do stop by again if something catches your eye, goodness knows the site can use all the feedback it can get. While I’m at it, I think I’ll put an Anime Jump link in the sidebar here if you don’t mind…

    I don’t mind one bit, thanks! I’m also a fan of Tsukasa Jun; I wish his artwork were a little easier to find.

    Sometimes I think that Tsukasa Jun and Range Murata are in fact the same person, as their styles are similar (despite the varied age preferences of their subjects) and when put together the pool of their work starts coming close to the yearly output of an average pro Japanese artist, instead of the measly trickle they seem to produce individually. They also both seem to have a penchant for designing “wearable art”, which I confess I do not understand at all.

    Hmm… I just baught one of thing from someone on ebay… from Japan. I paid a good deal for it, but in a sick way- I’m pretty proud of myself. If anyone REALY wants the thing… they can bid against all the others pervs for the one copy by a usa seller or just buy an overpriced one from the malaysian or hong kong seller… oh well.

    I very rarely post about the figures I collect but this is one of those that deserves extra credit.
    I saw this for pre-order a while back. As soon as the pre-ordering was available they reached their pre-order limit faster than any other model i have tried to order.
    I was recently in Japan just last month and was hoping to see some pre-order advertisements of her in stores (She was on my list of things to get while shopping) The selection in Japan of the high quality figurines in general was very low since I guess the Japanese are extremely quick to either pre-order or wait for hours once a store releases the product.
    Luckly I had already pre-orded from Hobby Link Japan, I received the Koyomi figure a few days ago and left it unopened being busy with other commitments. It an incredibly well made but fragile PVC figurine. The inclusion that you can remove the clothes was a surprise, might explain why it sold out in Japan (Otaku Gold mine!) I am not even sure any more if I want to take it out of the box since it seems so valuable now!
    Tsukasa Jun stall was at Tokyo winter comiket and sold out of their offerings such as sketch book and calendar pretty quickly. Tsukasa’s artwork has a intensely refined looked to it and the way female figures are draw is quite distinct (Partially the chest area). Tsukasa’s artwork of Koyomi i guess is what got me interested in his works.
    I have seen three other resin kits models of Koyomi. People should probably try look for the one where Koyomi is wearing a bikini and her hand behind her head i think the tatio.co.jp website may have pic of the figurine somewhere still.
    This one would probably be almost impossible to buy however. I saw another garage kit of her as well where she is almost naked for a whopping 52,500 YEN, Yikes!
    Unfortunately the popularity and discontinued tag of this Koyomi model means people selling this figurine on ebay are charging ridicules prices, like upwards of $200 US dollars and expensive shipping charges (I paid the cheaper 4,800 YEN pre-order price)
    I think it may be one of those figures no matter how much it goes up in value you would rather keep it.

    I do have this figure too but, let me put it this way, the body is better than the Adult Super Stars figures, which I have all of them (you can still get some of them at http://www.toynk.com/catalog/all_adult_figures_151209_products.htm, but hurry up since the company that made them went out of business) and even they are completely nude and fully anatomically correct, this Koyori figure has something else that put her over the top from all my “nude” figures. Now, for those of you that missed the Koyori figure, check out this link http://www.dannychoo.com/blog_entry/eng/398/Rangiku+Matsumoto/, it has another “kimono” figure from Mega House (the maker) and you can notice that there is a good chance that Rangiku Matsumoto from Bleach, will have “ removable clothes” too, since they are almost the same as with Koyori and of course, the figures has also a big pair of…tracts of land too, so go ahead and reserve your copy wile you can, this will sold out soon.

    I bought her some times ago for 100$ and I don’t regret ! she’s really good !
    And too bad for Matsumoto, you can’t remove her top …
