Hi everyone,

Remilia arrived on my doorstep exactly one day after Eli's figure, so here I am writing another review. I have never played a Touhou game, but I'm a real sucker for demonic girls so I couldn't pass her up. Here we go.

Warning: Picture-heavy.

Packaging: 9/10

A nice, sturdy box with a fancy floral cutout on top. The dimensions of the box are roughly the same as a 10-inch cube. There's also a front cover you can open to reveal the original artwork and window to see the figure.

Inside, there are a couple levels of blister packaging. One level contains the figure, base, and hat. The other one has the weapon and a set of wings.

Sculpting: 8.5/10

Sculpting was quite nice with many intricate details all around. I really liked how the chains around the front of her skirt were done as well as the lace patterns on her sleeves. You can also see the effort put forth towards minute details such as the silver patterns on her clothes. Overall, a very nice sculpt but not one that completely blows me away. It's also quite fragile with many tiny, pointy parts so I would be fairly careful in handling her.

Note: Her hat is magnetic so it stays on quite well.

Base: 6/10

A generic circular plastic base with red rose pattern. The pegs are metal, however.

Note: I cannot remove her from her base for fear of breaking her tiny-ass ankles. I swear that she skipped leg day.

Paint: 7.5/10

An adequate paint job. There's not much depth at all to the colors rendering them all quite flat looking. The only places with color variation are the wings which look fairly nice. I do love the many patterns around her clothes however. Paint lines are quite sharp with no noticeable errors.

Final Thoughts

A worthy addition to your collection if you like the series or demonic figures. If not, I feel that the price is a bit steep for what you get in terms of overall quality (I paid nearly $200 after shipping and PayPal conversion fees), but I like it nonetheless.

Today's drink: Old Fashioned.

https://c5.staticflickr.com/6/5348/30771246892_8b18b3420a_c.jpg

1 1/2 oz Bourbon
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 Sugar cube
Maraschino cherry
Orange slice

Place sugar cube in old fashioned glass and saturate with bitters, add a dash of plain water. Muddle until dissolved. Fill the glass with ice cubes and add whiskey. Garnish with orange slice, and a cocktail cherry.

After yesterday's election, you may want to have at least two of these.

Thank you!
I can't wait mine.
I love EoSD and Touhouvania so much, but I haven't had Remilia.
Sakuya and Flan are waiting for her.

Nice review, thank you! I did enjoy your pictures, but if I'm allowed to say something, I would recommend using a brighter background to help us appreciate all the little details a bit better.

Anyway, regarding the figure, I was so very tempted to get her, but she is indeed so expensive and I just feel she will stay that way (or she will even get pricier in a short term). And she looks like she will get a big chunk out of your display space, which I happen to have very little right now xP. So no money + no space = one sad collector.

Figure photo shoots featuring a drink suggestion - this needs to be an actual coffee table book.

I keep telling myself I don't want her because she's too edgy. But I actually want her for that reason. :|

Great review, thanks (but no, thanks, it made me want her even more).

Well, guess I'm definitely buying her now. I'm pressing that nuclear button tonight, and I'm not going to regret it one bit.
QuesQ is a great company. Their Koishi was also magnificent. As a rabid Touhou fan I approve!
