Kotobukiya’s Eri Ayase Is Ready For Summer Fun


Kotobukiya is kind of the reigning champ of swimsuit figures. There are many companies who make more (Wave, anyone?) but few who make them better. I suppose Alter might top them in quality, but they release swimsuit girls far too infrequently to vie for the title. Koto, however, puts them out with gusto and they always look so darn cute and manage to have appealing sculpts. I blame my entire swimsuit girl collection on their Nono Nekomiya and Minato Nagase.

This time they are taking on Eri Ayase from Love Live! School Idol Project. This is a character I really wouldn’t usually be interested in but oh my god this figure is just so cute. Sadly, she’s an exclusive, and her base retail price of ¥8,300 for a 1/8 scale figure is pretty high to start with.
