Amamiya Manami & Inamori Mika ~ Toysworks

Amamiya Manami and Inamori Mika (or more known as Manabi and Mikan ^^) from Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight manufactured by Toysworks. First I thought that they were 1/8 scale, but actually this one is non scale. I received this figurine as my birthday present back in November last year ^^.

And also I’m going to do colored background this time, after 3 whole months doing only black and white background ^^


Same with 1st picture but with brighter bg, which one is better? ^^

This figurine is good. Sculpt and painting are nicely done, and very detailed.


Hair ornament and arm badge have good detail


The student mobile is also nicely done


Detailed badges

I say that toysworks really did great job creating this figurine 🙂

This figurine also come with skirt cast off feature, showing their navy blue bloomer 😀

One of the best manabi straight figurine so far 🙂 I like this one better than GSC’s manabi because you get two characters instead of one (and mikan is very cute!)

PS: Starting from now, I will use image for the figurine info. If you like it and you happen to have the figurine, you can print the image, and put it next to the figurine, like this:

  1. Sweet figure(s), you seem to get a lot of those that I missed out and never had the chance to get (e.g., Max’s Fauna, Alter’s Shinku, and now this) =(

    I liked the darker background between the first two pics though I think it might be even nicer if there was smoother transition between the red/pink to black.

    Nice idea there with the cards, at the very least no one can bug you about who’s who from what and they can be just directed to read for themselves. Perfect for lazy people like me xD

  2. To much loli for me XD, I like lolis but not like this, I prefer the type of Nijihara Ink, Ilya but this is to much for me 😛 .

    Putting info on the characters itself is interesting but it wouldn’t work for me since the people that come to mu house don’t watch anime so they don’t bother asking from which series they come

  3. What was your depth of field for these photos? You could probably raise the F value to say 16 so you get that nice focused look on everything. Of course with a raised F value, you’ll have to set it to a slower shutter speed.

    I never like these versions of Manabi and Mikan. They didn’t look all that great to me, hence why I went for the GSC Manabi.

    Nice idea with the cards, but I wouldn’t have room in my cabinet to place a card next to them.

  4. @adun: various F value for the pictures, ranging from 25 to 32, only 3 pictures use F value below 10: 2 pictures use F value 4 (the one that shows mikan student ID, and the one that shows badge), and 1 picture use F value 8 (hair ornament and arm badge). Some of the picture are blurred because I want to put emphasize on the small detail that I mentioned ^^
