A few weeks ago, a package arrived on the doorstep. Luckily, I knew it was coming, otherwise I’d be very puzzled. My best friend had ordered an adorable little figure for me!
The Mikumo series of figures all feature Hatsune Miku somehow and are a cheaper alternative to some of the other figures available. This one features a kitty blob design inspired by the video for “Becoming Round,” which I posted a link to a few weeks ago. Here you see Miku, Rin, and Len chilling in a comfy cloud.
It’s definitely adorable. The paint job is pretty decent. The only real messiness I could find was around Miku’s face. There’s some visible seam lines, but they’re not distracting, and the clouds are shaded nicely too.
Now for the weird bit.
There’s a naked nekomimi Miku around the back of the figure! This does relate to the video, as at the end, it shows Miku stripping out of her little cat suit. It’s still pretty weird. It’s an odd choice for the sculptors to have made, putting her in the back like that. It almost takes away from the figure as a whole. However, if you simply display the front of the figure, there’s no hint of this strange naked girl.
It’s a cute figure, and pretty decently made. I’m really happy with this figure. It brightens my day, sitting on my desk.
