1/8 Ma-ryan ~ Kotobukiya

1/8 Ma-ryan from To Heart 2 Another Days, made by Kotobukiya. First figurine for this year! after some Play-Asia stupid delay

Bought this figurine as an impulse buy, since I dont normally buy To Heart nor Kotobukiya figurines, but this one is… sooo moe, can’t resist haha… ^^

This figurine is one of the best kotobukiya figurine I’ve seen so far. Great job for kotobukiya for creating such a nice figurine :)

closer view

You can remove her skirt, she’s wearing a white sukumizu, but I decided not to remove her skirt, since it quite hard to put it back :D

Full view of figurine (the other got the base covered with cottons)

This figurine is so good that Kotobukiya decides to milk more money out of it by releasing alternate costume, scheduled for May release.. but this one is definitely better than the alternate ver :)

Overall, this figurine is lovely. If you like cute figurine, you definitely will like this one.

You can see more of this figurine photos at James site.

    I remember the good old days when I can just impulse buy on a figure once every 2 months. Well, not anymore. T_T
    Lovely figure. This was the first To Heart figure where she really caught my interest. ^^

    Tis cute. If I go to any cons this year, this will probably wind up as part of my loot.

    Nice, this looks really sweet for a Kotobukiya production. Haven’t had an impulse buy in a while, guess the broken wallet has finally managed to rein me in? :p If she pops up at the store, might not be able to resist though ^^; So does she comes permanently affixed to the base?

    she looks so cute, it seems Kotobukiya tends to be either major hit or major miss when it comes to figures.

    Good choice on going for the simple, white background.

    Yes, this figurine is ridiculously cute. The magical thingies (XD) around her look really well done. The fluff on the ground look fantastic, too.

    Just like Koto’s Elwing, this is also one of the success Kotobukiya figure. Her necklace and her wing really look so nice.

    She’s such a cutie! And I definitely agree with you that this one is better than the alternate version.

    I hear Kotobukiya’s quality has been rising lately, but the prices have also been getting more expensive as well.

  16. Hirvine’s avatar

    I can imagine why this figure was an impulse purchase. I don’t like that tornado twist from the feet to the staff, but her stance is great. I love the twist of her body.

  17. Rin’s avatar

    I do say it’s really lovely!!!!!!
    Do love this shoot!!!!!!
    Amazing shoot!!!!!!

    Wow nice photoshoot there. Really like the cotton wool used on the base like smoke/cloud effects

    @Coco: not only kotobukiya, but other figurines prices are also increasing (Even the one with bad quality!) :(

    @Hirvine: the tornado is removable :D

  20. Blowfish’s avatar

    Way too cute for me ^^;

    Koto did some pretty good work on this one.I like her lil catfang.Im a sucker for those

  21. valho’s avatar

    Impulse buy is killing nowadays, with the increase in figures pricing, even a 1/8 can cost more than 7k yen =(.

    Koto figures are getting pretty good recently, with more dynamic poses, now they just need to improve on their paint job ^^

  22. Chappy’s avatar

    Koto figures are getting better indeed. Their price is also pretty affordable.
    Did i see fang!!?? Gosh, i have got low resistance against fang girls. >.< Now, so many girls are lining up to come home with me. By the way nice review.

    Damn spiral thing! It broke while putting it on :l .. what should I do now? … This isn’t happening…. my poor Maryan :'(

  24. ron~’s avatar

    @stg25k: wah, I feel your pain.. that’s why I didnt took the spiral off after I put it in (no photos off her with skirt removed). My only advice is to fix it using super glue…

    love the miniskirt. love the pantsu. (‘~’)

  26. stg25k’s avatar

    @ron: I found a very interesting way – I ordered a new one, while selling the old one to a friend of mine.. he never liked the spiral anyway ;)

  27. Hatchuu’s avatar

    I was really tempted to buy that for the same reasons ^^
    I didn’t know who it was or anything, but it’s MAGICAL GIRL STUFF.
    I love that. XD
