Hyakka Ryoran’s Naoe Kanetsugu

Hyakka Ryoran Samurai Girls Naoe Kanetsugu

I mentioned before that if I’ll buy just one Hyakka Ryoran figure, I’ll definitely get Naoe Kanetsugu.

I found this today at wcloudxkumo.com and I couldn’t believe I didn’t see previews of Naoe Kanetsugu last year.
Hyakka Ryoran Samurai Girls Naoe Kanetsugu 1/8 scale Alter

I got two figs from the Hyakka Ryoran series, Yagyu Jubei and Hattori Hanzo. I wanted to get Yakimura Sanada but she was an exclusive and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money for her. Senhime‘s naginata and zettai ryouiki appealed to me but for some reason, I passed on the pre-order.

Now it’s Naoe’s turn to get the figure treatment from Alter and I’m excited to see how she’ll turn out. I like twin tails and huge weapons so she instantly became my favorite among all the Samurai Girls. I’m just kinda worried about her smile though. The amount of teeth figures are showing could be an issue to me. ^^; Another thing to consider is if she’ll be an exclusive. With Hattori Hanzo they released both exclusive and a non-exclusive versions with weapons as the difference. I hope they’ll do the same with Naoe in case that happens. I wonder if she’s a castoffable fig, there’s this tiny photo on the lower right portion which makes me think that she is? 0_o

I’m not supposed to spend a lot on figures but I only have 2 items on pre-order (Nendoroid Snow Miku – Playtime edition and figma Miku Append) so perhaps this could be the third? How about you, what’s new on your wish list?

    Naoe looks like she’ll be a nice figure based on the sculpt, but I’m not a big fan of samurai girls.

    As for me, I have all the non-swimsuit Shining Hearts figures on order as well as a slew of nendoroids.

      I’ve seen 1/8 Kaguya from Koto and she’s really pretty. And a slew of Nendos? Can’t wait for your reviews. ^^

    Ah yes, I’m going to be getting this version of Naoe as well. Her huge hammer looks intimidating, can’t wait to see her painted. She might actually be my first Alter figure as well. I’ve not read she’s going to be exclusive, but then she’s still in the prototype phase.

    I’m also going to get Penguin Parades Naoe. She’s cast-off and has the huge hammer as well. She was shown in the April edition of Hobby Japan. I’m just waiting to put in my pre-order.

    From the latest issue of Hobby Japan I’d say the Code Geass girls by banpresto look promising. I’m also very keen to see what MegaHouse do with Yukiko Hime from Dororon Enma-ku Meeramera. Only a teaser illustration was shown ><. As much as I'd like those Seikon no Qwaser poseable figures bundled with the DVD I just can't bring myself to shell out 20k¥ for them.

    1. xine says:

      Wow! Just like Nopy, you have a lot on your list. ^^

      Yeah, I hope Naoe from Alter will not be an exclusive. How’s the quality of Penguin Parade figs?

      How many figures are we talking about at ¥20K? and just one DVD? ^^;

      1. BioToxic says:

        I’m not too sure of Penguin Parade quality, although they are affiliated with Good Smile Company. They tend more towards making anime goods as opposed to figures though.

        It’s a pretty good deal actually for the Qwaser figures. You get 2 of them, plus loads of swappable parts that takes them from fully clothed to birthday suit. But even still, justifying 20k¥ on something I’m on the fence with is kind of difficult. They come bundled exclusively with the Vol 4 DVD/Blu-ray. Would be nice if you could get them individually – would save on the cost of the DVD.

    First of all, congrats on the blog.

    I’ve never been too much into BUYING this kind of figures, mostly for a lack of monetary income and a Paypal account, but have always enjoyed the detail level. It’s certainly nice to be able to watch a manga/anime style character in real world 3D (and I’m not talking abbot avatar’ish 3D)

    Maybe now that I’m getting some income and finally have a Paypal account may start buying them.

    (Nice thighhighs on the figure BTW)

      Hey ZRNET. Thanks for dropping by.

      Figure collecting is super fun but can be dangerous to your wallet. Lol. Hope you’ll start your collection soon. ^^

    Finally ALTER showed their Kanetsugu prototype, looks nice. A castoff option would be unusual for a ALTER figure, but we will see.

    Kanetsugu was a funny character in the show, and together with Hanzo and Sanade my favorite characters from the anime show.

    Im afraid that she will be exclusive, but I really would like to have this figure of her, so I would pay an exra amount for Mr. Proxy ^^

  5. Wow, that’s a huge hammer xD. The proportions are a bit extreme but she’s pretty cute with the long twin tails and bells in her hair. Seems like she’s worth a PO ^^
    I have a few figures on PO for the next few months. Ika Musumu, Taiga, some FSN girls, and a Mugi. I’ve been trying to spend less on figures so it’s a few less than I used to order per month xD

  6. xine says:

    @BioToxic: Yeah, they do that with exclusive games too, right? Sometimes I wish they could just sell me the fig ^^;

    @Fabienne: Yeah, Kanetsugu is funny with those little antics of hers. Were you able to finish the anime? I think I stopped at ep 8.

    Hopefully I could still get her if she’s an exclusive. T_T

    @anonymous_object: Wow, you’re already trying to spend less but still so many figs on PO! ^^ Which Taiga fig are you referring to? I love Taiga but I don’t have a single fig of her. Lol.

    1. Fabienne says:

      Yeah I’ve finished it and actually liked the comedy parts a lot ^^. I also liked the specials for their mix of comedy and ecchiness;D
      unfortunately, the final felt rushed and was not very well done.

      1. xine says:

        I guess I’ll find time to watch the entire series. Thanks Fabienne! ^^

  7. Aya says:

    totally forgot about this prototype hmmm seeing comments about Penguin Parade version above I think the clothes not as promising as this one as it have cast off feature and the main question when this will be released >_<

    1. xine says:

      Hi Aya. Thanks for dropping by.
      Yeah, I still haven’t heard about the release date. I’m hoping for a November release, this would be a really cool birthday present. ^^

  8. Yi says:

    She looks very promising. I’ve always found Hyakka Ryoran figures to be very very pretty, and part of it is because the character designs they’re based on have some of the fanciest outfits. Can’t wait to see how she turns out.

    1. xine says:

      Yeah, I’m really excited! Love ’em details. ^^

  9. softz says:

    Remember to take photos and show us your Hyakka Ryoran series collections :)

    1. xine says:

      But I only have two. T_T You’ll find photos of Jubei and Hanzo in the blog.
