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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜€

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 πŸ™‚

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

  1. 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?

  2. WOAH….talk about loli…lol…….anways…

    Excelent Figure… good desgin and skill put into it…not to mention very KAWAIIIIII!!!!!

  3. 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.

    M12s last blog post.. Mom! Buy me a RideBack!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

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

    @Hirvine: the tornado is removable πŸ˜€

  7. 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 ^^

    valhos last blog post.. Happy CNY and more figures

  8. 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.

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

  10. @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…

  11. @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 πŸ˜‰
