Kaori Miyazono 1/8 scale by GSC

Hello!

Because of work and lack of time I haven’t posted anything for the past few months, so it’s high time to write a review.

And today’s main topic is a lovely character from anime Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso – Kaori Miyazono. It’s easily noticable, that she’s a young violinist. The story is simple, don’t expect too many plot twists and dynamics, yet beautiful. It’s a story about love, music, sorrow and much more. It makes you smile, laugh and cry. I don’t know anyone who didn’t like this series.

Kaori is definitely the strongest asset to the series. She’s very charismatic, talented and optimistic.

Currently there are only 3 figures from the series and one coming (recently announced by Aniplex). Unfortunately only this one is a standard release manufactured, by Good Smile Company, other 3 are Aniplex’ exclusives.

Let’s take a look at her! The box comes first. It’s simple, but fits the character of the series very well.

Fortunately the figure doesn’t require much assemblying, you just have to put Kaori on the base and that’s it. I’m glad because attaching the violin could be pretty difficult. The pose is not very natural, but it’s cute, like Kaori was floating in the wind. The base is also very simple, but what more do we need?

It’s a decent figure. The paint job is very good, the details and the sculpt are nice. She’s about 20cm tall. Her face is really lovely. What I like the most though is the violin.

The only thing that could be improved is the seam on the hair

Can you say no to these eyes? I’m sure you can’t 😉

Thank you for reading!
