Sousou has to be one of my favourite characters in Koihime. Due to the fact that she is not of the major characters (though appears in a few episodes) means that i am thrilled when something is released of her design. The problem is that quantities are limited and in high demand. As a result of the rarity and cost one can only demand a high quality cast, which is well presented.

Upon receiving my Sousou in the mail, the first thing i notice is the box or packaging, and for something costing about US$100, I expect quality. Unfortunately the packaging does not deliver, the colours on the box were so faded and a couple of the illustrations on the box blurry, that if I was to come across this at an anime convention, I would think it was a bootleg.

After opening the box i take her out, removing the plastic was a hassle, but well packaged sure beats transit/postage damage. Sousou's slim sexy build is good and signature drill hair in place, and the pose is nice. Her facial expression is slightly off and lipstick seems to be a mess compared to what Sousou looks like.

the Painting on this figure from a distance is good, but up close another story unfolds, looking up close I can see colour imperfections. The main awful paint job is the belt she wears, for some reason the gems are painted with a light cobolt blue, and does not match the other gems on her arms and chest.

the base is bland and ugly, and what is worse is that the base does not match that in the display picture, all it is is a bland black pvc base.

As another note about the sculpturing is that this figure has a removable breast plate, hence NSFW. This may be a positive and i am sure some fans will display her with it off. While you can attach it back, if you have housemates like mine who detest all hentai it has to stay on. The main problem with the breastplate is that it is not held by anything, it just sits and if you shake the figure it falls off.

In conclusion, I have not attempted to be biased, yes I love the figure to death, but that is because it is the only Sousou figure i can find. I reccomend the figure only to those that really like Sousou, otherwise there are much better figures on the market for the same price with twice as much quality...

I'm trying to find better photos of the bootleg to decide, I only found photos from ebay but they are too blurry...maybe I can find it and see it in person in september in the next anime-manga event in my country ^^U

KunoichiThere are already bootlegs of her. The paint job is very similar so maybe in this case I prefer to take the bootleg because the price of the original its too high for the low quality...

If you do buy on the bootlegs could you let me know how the quality is, and if there is still removable bra etc.... Yes the fact that within weeks a bootleg was released suprises me, I wonder if there was a paint job from scratch if the bootleggers could infact do a better job.....
