I got really excited when I saw the teaser for the upcoming Miku figure. I think it’s the same level of excitement when I saw Black Rock Shooter Anime Version and I’m not really a big Miku fan. ^^ Miku Append will be revealed on April 30 and I can’t wait! I think Masaki‘s illustration was brilliant and hopefully the finished figure will not disappoint.
I like this better than the VN02 mix mainly because of the colors. This new version of Miku has the original colors and I guess to me she appears more human, more warm. I don’t really have a liking to figures who look a lot like human but this one appeals to me, she doesn’t look human-human, but I don’t know, maybe because of her pose or her bare feet gave that sort of feel.
I love Miku’s hair in Masaki’s illustration and I’m excited to see how they sculpted it on the figure. That translucent part of her costume already looks good and I think the gradation of the colors on other parts of this figure will look amazing.
Update: Masaki posted some pictures on his blog and I kinda like what I see. ^^
I think her pensive mood makes her quite interesting. I would have liked her more if her eyes were closed though. I hope she comes with an alternate expression or something. Is she showing some teeth? Normally I would have been put off by that because it’s quite tricky to make teeth look good on a figure but this time I’m still thinking of getting her. ^^ Oh, I love her crystal-like hair, so pretty!
Her body contours look nice. I wonder what she wears under that white dress of hers. ^^;
