Chouhi Ekitoku Archive

  • Orchid Seed always manages to win me over on their figures, even ones I thought I didn’t want originally. So I was surprised when I didn’t seem to like their Chouhi when she was painted or when she went up for order, despite all the pink ruffles. Well, once again they’ve managed to change my mind, though it took a while to happen. Her face is really the highlight for me, it’s so cute and I love the eye shape! The detail on her outfit seems a lot better in these shots, along with the fact that there are no seamlines. But wait, if she’s cast-off, how are there no seams?! Well, in an ingenious move they decided to just give her an alternate body, so technically she’s not even cast-off. This means a sleeker look overall, and equal proportions with and without clothing. Hooray! [via Orchid Seed’s Blog]

  • The week after Wonder Festival we really don’t see that many releases from companies. In fact, they’re usually so busy moving stuff back and resting up that this week would be a “dead week” with only a few figures going up for order. Well, we’re not exactly bursting at the seams with them, but we do have enough for a roundup! And some very nice ones at that, including (finally) another one of Alter’s Witches, Meat from Good Smile Company, and a really big bunny girl. So hit the jump to check them all out!

    PVC Pre-Order Roundup: 7/29~8/2

  • We actually kicked off our WonFest coverage with Orchid Seed’s Chiharu and new sculpts, but it seems like this year they really stepped up and did a lot of new work (finally!). First off, their swimsuit rocker Soniko is sculpted and of course looks great. Chouhi Ekitoku is finally painted and while I don’t usually go for Ikkitousen figures she’s really cute. In a surprising turn of events, Orchid has picked up two popular (and SFW) Touhou Project kits: Glemo’s Flandre Scarlet and Byakuren Hijiri. Of course there’s new art as well, though they still have quite a few they still have to work on. There’s FINALLY an Orchid Seed Tamaki, though they went with her Samurai garb from Dragon Chronicles so she’s pretty SFW. The little petit figure of her is done as well! There’s also bunnygirl Yukimo Sakaki from Grisaia no Kajitsu -LE FRUIT, Maria Saotome from Sex Life, the cat maid from Comic Aun 15th Anniversary Cover, a bondage girl from B-Chiku, and Aki Nijou from Maken-Ki! You can look forward to the sculpts for these in about 2 years. [via akibahobby]
