Menma from AnoHana has been quite popular among figure manufacturers both big and small. However, the vast majority of her figures seem nearly identical: standing in her long white dress, arms spread. The two different takes are Alter’s gorgeous diorama Menma and Max Factory’s adorable (and a bit risque) swimsuit version. Ques Q recently announced that they’d be doing a version of this cutie, but would she be any different than the others?
While I do think the sculpt here is quite adorable, I’m not sure if this brings anything new to the table. It’s Menma, she looks cute, she’s spinning around. I wish they’d gone with either a different pose or a different outfit, because right now this is just a “maybe” figure. It’s a shame, because they did a lovely job on her… just not good enough to make her pop.
