Kirino Kousaka True End Ver. Review

LyncfsLyncfsIl y a 2 ansReview
KIRINO KOUSAKA – TRUE END VER. BY MAX FACTORY

Today we’ll be looking at a figure that was made about a year ago. I have to admit I watched Oreimo for one episode and couldn’t stomach the relationship or Kirino. This figure was bought purely on beauty. I purchased her from a local friend brand new. Since she was an exclusive, I wasn’t sure where I could get her by myself (although I now know better). The times I have seen her pop up on Mandarake, she’s snatched up almost immediately so I think she’s quite hard to get nowadays.

BOX - 10

Kirino’s box is beautiful. Max Factory gave Kirino a “Miku” treatment with a windowless box. There’s gold embossing around the letters and has fancy scroll work. It reminds me of a cake box and I’m glad they made it windowless since it feels more classy to me.

SCULPT - 10

Kirino’s sculpt is pretty fantastic. Her overall form is pretty simple but she has several things going for her.
Let’s take a look at her face. From the little part of the anime, I’ve seen her face looks true to her character. The hair and face shape look proportionate.

The realistic wrinkles on her dress are where this figure shine. From the way she’s turning towards you, the wrinkles in the bodice look natural for her pose.

I love the frills on the skirt of the dress. It gives off a Cinderella feel. One of my favorite parts that some people overlook is the scalloping on the edge of her dress.

Max Factory carried out the wrinkles and lace throughout the side and back of her dress.

Kirino is also wearing a matching set of pearl earrings and necklace. It was a nice touch! Also gotta love the scallop edging on her gloves.

Overall, the painting on Kirino is even.
I think Max Factory could have done a better job shading her hair since it looks kind of flat.

Kirino’s off white dress has a pearl finish and the lace parts around the dress are painted a transluscent white. I have nothing to really complain about here.

POSE- 7

Kirino is turning towards you with her bouquet in hand, with one hand lifting her skirts to ascend the stairs. The scene reminds me of a bride walking up the stairs to the chapel. She turns as she catches a glimpse of someone in the crowd.

To be honest, her pose is a little plain to me. It’s probably appropriate for a wedding scene and shows off her gown but it’s really nothing too special.

BASE & ACCESSORIES - 8

The base is large and fairly unique like someone cut away half a staircase.

It comes in two pieces: the stair portion with fake velvet and the scroll work railing.

Kirino connects to the base via two pegs. She’s fairly stable. The only thing I don’t like about the velvet carpeting is that Max Factory left glue residue where the carpet meets the stairs. This is sticky to the touch and really serves no purpose. I also noticed that it’s pretty easy for the velvet to get indentations after sitting out for a while. The railing looks nice and is sturdy. It connects to the stairs via two pegs on both ends.

The only accessory Kirino comes with is her bouquet. It looks ok. I think the flowers could have been more defined but it adds a nice touch of color to the otherwise white palette.

ENJOYMENT - 8

After owning way too many spectacular figures, I think my passion for Kirino has waned a little since I bought her about a year ago. If asked if I would pay the same amount of money for her again, I would probably answer "no". However, I am still happy to have her in my collection. For some reason, I just can’t get enough of bride figures.

Well just as much risk as keeping them home I think. Just make sure she has a good spot and that ppl are careful with her but in my case everyone knows my hobby and that im very careful with them :) or else i might take my louise doll with me but not sure yet as it is more risky

and personally for me, and i seem to be a big minority here, i liked kirino a lot and i also liked the ending to the second season a lot.

It's good to know there are other opinions out there!

I would love to own this as im about to get married soon myself <3

She would be beautiful to display at a wedding. I thought about putting some of my figures as center pieces but in the end was too scared they might get damaged.

I kinda like Kirino, even that people say she is "trash" or things like this, I just can't get mad at her or hate her. in my personal opinion, she is the second best girl from the anime (But Kuroneko win, Kuroneko always win)

THANK YOU. Looks like the Kirino fans are fighting for her.

Which is your favorite Kirino figure?

Those swimsuit figures are cute! I think I like the Kuroneko one better. This is the only Kirino figure I own so I would have to say she is my favorite. I do like the kimono one of her by Freeing as well.

Nice review, thank you! The true end figure looks beautiful, but I probably wouldn't buy it at that price... I have two figures of Kirino so far; the cu-poche ITEM #117981 and the Kotobukiya swimsuit version ITEM #117546 and so far I think I still like the Kotobukiya swimsuit version the best out of all of the Kirino figures. I don't normally buy swimsuit version figures, but the Kotobukiya swimsuit versions of Kirino and Kuroneko ITEM #117545 are just so attractive that I had to buy them. Those two were an impulse buy, but I don't regret buying them in the slightest! I dunno if it's just me that likes those figures so much though lol.

I hope someday I can get this figure ;v; maybe it will be pretty hard for me to get her these days, but I'll try my best!

she's definitely a beautiful figure, i hope to get her soon<3 i don't have many grails left but she'd definitely be one of them, i love both kirino and wedding dresses :D

and personally for me, and i seem to be a big minority here, i liked kirino a lot and i also liked the ending to the second season a lot. kirino isn't even that tsun imo compared to louise or taiga in the first half of the anime................ but oh well people have their own opinions i guess!

Anyway, great review of a great figure.
mukyuu (Il y a 2 ans) #3185875 I wanted to bitchslap her several times while watching it.victorviper (Il y a 2 ans) #3185880
Anyway, this looks like a lovely figure, but my enthusiasm for the Oriemo franchise declined after the second season...which of course never existed.


Your comments are hilarious. Makes me happy I never invested time in that series and thus harbor no murderous intentions towards Kirino or this figure.

WanderingWastrel (Il y a 2 ans) #3185766That's a truly beautiful figure. Maybe someday when I finally get over that %$@@$ ending... I mean, come on, that was [20 minutes of insane ranting deleted]
Anyway, great review of a great figure.


Ending? There was never an ending to the Oreimo anime. In fact, there were all these rumors of a second season, but it never materialized. There was definitely never a second season, there was definitely never a second season...

Anyway, this looks like a lovely figure, but my enthusiasm for the Oriemo franchise declined after the second season...which of course never existed.

In any event, nice review.

It is a really beautiful figure but I can't get over at how Kirino is a terrible person. I wanted to bitchslap her several times while watching it.
