  • I wish she was a bigger scale. She looks amazing though. Very nice review.

    Nice review! I liked how you chose ITEM #42261 as a comparison, as they share the same illustrator :)

    It's always nice to see reviews of older figures on here.

    I've always kind of "admired this figure from afar". I really like the design, particularly her very distinctive orange outfit, but I don't know the source/character and so I've never added this figure to my collection.

    I never noticed how small this figure was until now; she definitely looks more like a large 1/9 scale.

    Ah, this figures brings back memories... The anime, Guilty Crown, had fantastic music, art, and potentially a great story but the characters in that anime are horrible. It had so much potential but the anime just fell apart...

    Despite my bitter memories about Guilty Crown, Inori is still the one character that still lingers around in my memories. She's actually an singer in a fictional band that takes place during a post-apocalyptic but futuristic world. Here's one famous song that her character sings, shown below under the spoiler tag (and while the song is it's for a different anime, it's still a very "Inori" song.

    Inori's outfit is very suiting for a idol singer — elegant, whimsical, and sexy without showing too much skin. Her fiery orange and red ribbons is very hypnotizing and entrancing and it's the one thing that still etched into my memories. It's definitely an attention-stealing outfit and the moment you see it, it'll forever be stuck into your memories.

    I really do like how you mention about her face expression with that hopeful look — you sorta nailed it, plot wise, about the anime lol. The sculptors must be happy that you got that instinct feeling about her, especially since you've never seen the anime.

    Thanks for the review and glamour shots of Inori!!

    galablue4 kuukautta sitten#76628180"Inori" in Japanese means "prayer", and this review today has answered mine! What a beacon of light in the dark times we're in right now. I really love her orange paint job on her outfit. Somehow the deep oranges and the light lilac/pink on her hair don't clash. It's great color theory. I also really appreciate the realistic bust, I love figures like this because it's realistic but doesn't go into loli territory.
    How did wiping down the box go? I have some stuff waiting from HLJ outside and I told my dad I would allow him to 14 day quarantine it because ... well, I really didn't want my figures and paper theaters sprayed with lysol and wiped down with a wet wipe.

    I'm glad that I could offer a ray of sunshine on your day, Gala! This isn't easy, by any means, for anyone out there, and this is a time that we all need to understand that everyone deals with stress and anxiety and panic in their own unique ways. By being patience and conscientious with one another, we can learn about our own defense and coping mechanisms.

    In terms of the "wipe down" ... I feel like it was a pretty easy and painless procedure for the box. These days, the printing and manufacture of these types of product boxes has so much plastic involved, that even the clear-coat varnish that is on the thin cardboard wiped clean as if it was a counter-top. I actually used quite a bit of the disinfectant, and it didn't even give the cardboard what I was expecting in a "moisture warp." Wiped it all clean and let it dry and it looked good as right off the shelf.

    Who knows if I actually killed anything or prevented any transmittal of the virus, but I feel like the placebo effect of cleaning it as thoroughly as possible was a positive exercise. :)

    Kelda4 kuukautta sitten#76628556I really love this figure... I always wanted this figure for years and when I started collecting last year she was one of my first purchases.
    And yes she is a little small, but damn she is so beautiful and the colours...
    Even with her size she is one of my favorite figures :)

    Congratulations!! That is a magnificent figure, and it must have felt very nice to finally hunt down this grail :)!

    I was quiet surprised by the same scale comparison. It actually feels like this figure was a 1/9, unless the character is smaller.

    Great review as well!

    (P.S. just checked, and Miku is supposed to be shorter than Inori at 5’2” vs. 5’5”. So yea, wondering if 10 years later, we will see even larger 1/8 scale figures haha.)
