For some reason, Utena has suddenly been thrown back in a mini-spotlight, just like Cardcaptor Sakura–both of which I am very happy about! We have a doll (which is definitely not my taste), the announced figure from MegaHouse, and now a third figure announcement! Of course we are all hoping for a figure from Alter or Max Factory, but for now this will have to do.
It’s a prize figure, but from arguably the best manufacturer out there for prizes–Sega! It’s part of their Eternal Characters Series, and I’m sure we’ve all got our fingers crossed for a matching Anthy.

It’s only been a few hours since this figure was revealed and okay it’s only a prize figure (and from FuRyu at that!) but we need more pictures of her. So many more pictures. We only have a few right now but they’re so amazing I might die of happiness. I feel like I’ve waited all my life for a good figure of Sakura!
I mean, I’m sure Good Smile has like a hundred sculpts of her they’ll be showing off at Winter WonFest, but don’t doubt the power of a good prize figures–the quality is almost always far beyond what the price would suggest. And I mean come on THE POSE. THE SKIRT. IT’S (almost) PERFECT except, where’s Kero. I need more Kero action asap.

It’s been a while since we featured a prize fair on the site, since they’ve been dull dull dull. Evangelion, Evangelion, and more Evangelion. But the 34th has some lovely surprises, like… a Cardcaptor Sakura prize figure! For real. Look at the header. It’s not a mirage, it’s real life, and it’s glorious.
Of course there are other figure (but who cares SAKURA), like… tons of Attack on Titan stuff! Also the usual suspects: Vocaloid, Madoka, Macross, Yuru Yuri, Evangelion (even I’m tired of it…), Bakemonogatari, To Aru, Sword Art Online, Kantai Collection, and… Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! (finally!).

There are very few characters who get an absolute deluge of figures, let alone from one company: SEGA has done a plethora of Evangelion girls, Banpresto seems devoted to Fate & Nanoha, and then we have the strange romance of Soniko & FuRyu. Soniko’s popularity is actually a bit perplexing if you think about it, since before the very recent anime announcement she just had a game which didn’t exactly dive deeply into her psyche. And before that, she was just an illustration! But pink hair + cute face + boobs is apparently a recipe for magic.
This is FuRyu’s third set of Soniko prizes: the first set was super cute, and the second a little…. strange, giving us “running out the door” Soniko and “drying my hair with headphones on” Soniko. Now we are getting two more: “lounging around in a revealing sweater while talking on the phone” Soniko and… um, drycleaning Soniko? Well the phone one is really cute. And possibly suicidal hairdressing Soniko is painted! I wonder if there will be a 4th set…

The incoming Persona 3 movie means, of course, more Persona 3 merchandise–which is a good thing, right? Well… it usually is. You know, if the sculpt doesn’t look like a bootleg version of a trading figure!
Happy Kuji, a lottery prize much like Ichiban Kuji, is working on almost the whole cast in one form or another and we’ve seen some cute straps from them… but then this monstrosity walks in. I mean oh my god it’s so bad. I didn’t even know you could make a figure this awful in 2013. I know she’s a prize, but compare this to Taito’s Elizabeth, a widely available prize figure, and it’s just… laughable. I can’t imagine looking at this and thinking “yeah, this is something I want to own!” I’m actually kind of happy they aren’t doing a big Junpei, I don’t want to see that eldritch beast!

I love Junpei Iori from Persona 3. A lot. Like… he’s probably my favorite male character from any (Japanese) property ever. I’ve been dying for merchandise of him since I first popped in the game disk and saw his goofy face. He’s my video game soulmate. And we’re finally getting something of him! You think that would be good news, right? WRONG.
The dreaded Happy Kuji is upon us again. Prize figures… damn you to hell! So far we’re getting keychains of Junpei, the MC, Mitsuru Kirijou, Yukari Takeba, Fuuka Yamagishi, Akihiko Sanada and Elizabeth. They’re so cute ;~; Like their Persona 4 lineup we’ll also be getting chibis (of all the playable characters! Except Ken, cause Ken sucks. And Shinji, because… you know), and 2 scaled prizes of the MC and Elizabeth. And for once, no Aegis! It’s a miracle. But I just want Junpei. Sadly Happy Kuji figures seem so hard to get *sob*

You’d think that when it comes to Soniko, there’d be nothing left that would surprise me–especially in the realm of prize figures. I mean, in the last few months alone we’ve had neon-bright police officer Soniko, drying-her-hair-with-headpones-on Soniko, and a strange combo of stripper and office worker. Well apparently Taito is determined to outdo everyone with a Gloomy Bear Race Queen.
That’s right, this isn’t just a Gloomy Bear Soniko (wow, that’s a sentence I never thought I’d write) she’s also a race queen! What. I don’t even… what is going on. Why are there bizarre circles on her boobs. What is happening? Do I like it, do I hate it? I don’t know. But of course I have her on order because for ¥1,490 how can I not?! Think of the photo opportunities.

For some reason, when Taito showed off their police officer Soniko I imagined her in a traditional color scheme. Navy uniform, black stockings. I mean, police officers don’t walk around looking like this (let’s face it, this is flat out stripper garb), but I wasn’t expecting… PINK PINK PIIIINK.
On one hand, I am confused. It’s so… pink. Like a 5 year old girl’s bedroom vomited all over the place. On the other, OH MY GOD it’s so tacky I freaking LOVE IT. Pink. So pink. With a classy hint of neon orange and a purple ray gun. It’s so deliciously over the top, which after all is Soniko’s defining feature.

Man, FuRyu is really on a roll here! I loved their first set of Super Soniko prizes: they were cute, quirky, and totally different from the scaled versions of her on the market. Their newer prize figure of her had me scratching my head a little, but this one is just… why. So apparently she just came home from the gym, or is in the locker room or something. Cause, you know, busty girls totally have sports bras that don’t fit. That’s not painful to exercise in. And she’s blowdrying her hair… with her headphones on. And her right ankle seems to be broken. I get that Soniko is a fantasy, but this is just all sorts of ridiculous.
Then again, we have painted images of the newer prize figure in the gallery and I like it a heck of a lot more than I thought I would. The polka dot shorts! SO CUTE! And the tie! I still think the heels are ridiculous with that outfit but at least they aren’t five inches and I do adore the gradient in her hair. However, I don’t think a coat of paint will save this gym Soniko for me: Hopefully these two are sold separately.

Taito’s Persona 4 Arena line has been going really well so far: Izanagi, Aegis, Yukiko & Chie looked great, and though Kanji wasn’t the best the Naoto he came with was totally awesome. So I had high hopes for the Rise & Teddie duo, since they are by far my favorite characters from Persona 4. To be honest, I could take or leave pretty much anyone else: I’m all about P3.
Let’s start with the postitive: Teddie looks amazing! Then again he’s pretty much a giant orb with hands, so that’s not too hard to pull off. But still, aww! Teddie! Sadly, Rise got the short end of the stick. Her face isn’t as bad as Kanji’s but it’s really not good. At all. And the hair! Good lord! Hopefully Elizabeth looks better, and I’d like to see them move on to the P3 characters that pop up in Arena: Mitsuru, Junpei and Akihiko, yes please.
