[NSFW]Ookami to Koushinryou - Holo - 1/7 (Kadokawa)[NSFW]Ookami to Koushinryou - Holo - 1/7 (Kadokawa)

Hey, folks and welcome to another review! :3
Due to the nature of the figure this review will be NSFW!
You've been warned , so please proceed at your own discretion. :3

This post will also be picture heavy (as always).


For this time's review I picked Kadokawa's figure of one of my most beloved characters, which is Spice and Wolf's Holo. I actually wasn't all that hyped for this one, since the promo pictures looked kinda meh~ to me. I also heard mixed thigs about Kadokawa as a manufacturer and the price seemed a bit steep for such a simple figure too. In the end I caved though (who whould've thought... x3).
So let's have a look if my misgivings were justified or not.^^


First up is the classical look at the box, which is a fairly simple one light green and with brown decorations. The top, front and right side have windows that allow a look at Holo in all her beauty (well not exactly all, since the stripe of cardboard on the front looks like some sort of censor bar). I really like what how they printed brown ornaments around the right side's window (why only there though?). Anyway the left and back feature pictures of the figure from different angles. Overall the box is more utilitarian than pretty imo, though I like the ornaments and font they used for it.

The blister is nothing special either, but offers good protection. The pole to hold Holo's hair in place is taped behind it
(yeah..... there's actually a pole for that... let's get to that later).

Assembling the figure is easy at first glance, there are only 3 parts after all, though since the metal rod to insert into the base is imbedded into Holo's foot it's a tad harder than necessary imo (or maybe the fit isn't all that good).
The base isn't exactly anything to brag about, it's a simple brown disc, and I really don't like that the made it shiny. Apart from the fact that you don't need to see a reflection of the figure from that angle, fingerprints are all too visible too.

Spin around.... (I didn't attach the pole yet)

Taking a closer look it's obvious that they changed Holo's face a bit compared to the promo pictures, the mouth seems rounder and the face seems thinner making the eyes look further apart. Imo this looks way better
and while I'm not completely sold on her face it sure is pretty enough.

Since I didn't expect spectacular quality I was pleasantly surprised how well her hair and the ears look. Ofc there are seams on the side and looking really closely (or from weird angles) you can obviously see how her hair strands were attached and that her ears and bangs are one piece is also a bit questionable. That being said her hair flows beautifully (great sculpting there) and gives the figure a dynamic feel,
even with the shading being a bit too subtle for my taste.

Going further down you can see Holo in all her naked glory (well, you can't actually see anything you're not supposed to see). Her body looks really great, because of the attention to detail. Since she is quite slender her ribcage is showing (not in an unhealthy way). Her armpits, belly and back with the shoulder blades were also nicely sculpted and the shading gives them a bit more depth.

Her little pouch could've used a bit more in terms of detail
(both sculpting- and painting-wise), but who really looks at that? X3

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/broken-Toybox1523259134.jpeg


The arms and fingers fit Holo's stature too and her fingernails actually have some gloss on them (sadly I couldn't quite capture it on the pictures).
Only the paint on the cord looks a bit sloppy imo.

Focusing on her pride and joy... the tail... x3
Overall it makes a pretty good impression, though there are some rougher places in the paintwork and sadly the didn't fix the visible gaps between the two different parts of her tail (it was already visible in the promo pictures and bothered me quite a bit). The color gradient from brown to the lighter colored tip
and the dynamic movement still look good though.

The legs just like her hair and tail convey a good sense of movement and look just as good as the rest of her body. I also really like that the lower legs weren't sculpted exaggeratedly thin.
Her feet look great too, with the toes being visible modelled and the glossy toenails.
Well, the cords again look a bit rough, but so what?

Ok, so it's time to attach the pole and there's actually a instruction sheet for it.
https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/broken-Toybox1523259163.jpeg
Though being the stupid me that I am it didn't help me much and I just went through some trial an error. X3


Looking at her fully assembled I have to say that the pole make the whole figure look a bit cheap imo. More than the base actually and I really don't like it (I'll display it like this though, since I don't want any leaning issues).

Conclusion

Well, considering my expectations I'm really pleasantly surprised how good this Holo looks. Her pose is cute and while she is naked she doesn't look vulgar, but just beautiful. The figure itself is kinda simple so I didn't find too many flaws (which is good). Ofc I wish some things had been done differently (like the base, pole and tail), but I can overlook it and will just enjoy the 'view'. :3

That's it for this review! Thanks for reading! :3
I hope you liked it and if you have some constructive criticism
I'd really appreciate that. :3
Any thoughts on the figure would be very welcome too!^^

She does look nice, I have also ordered her. Will actually be my first Holo figure, as the one from GSC and Revolve is slow as heck

ney (Il y a 1 an) #32378290Well the lights I use for my pictures are cold lights, as they came with my photo-tent. I actually prefer them for reviews though, since I don't strive for pretty but 'useful' pictures.^^

solluxcaptor (Il y a 1 an) #32379164I get that, though for me it also depends on the pose and facial expression most of the time, but that's Holo for you! x3
Maybe you get lucky and find her for a good price (the initial one is kinda steep for what she is imo). :3

I don't usually like nude figures because they are often tasteless in my opinion but wow, this Holo figure is so beautiful and classy! I would even like to own her myself.

That figure of Holo is definitively nice (considering the difficulty to find some scale of her) so thanks for your complete review ! Just a little thing : Your pictures are a bit too cold, not a big deal but you can fell it on the overall render.

Thanks! :3
I can relate to that, this is a somewhat ambiguous figure for me too. Overall I'm glad that I caved, but she is far from perfect. Giving her a pass if you're not satisfied is definitely the sensible thing to do.^^

That figure looks great, but the eyes just seem so dead to me. I'm dying to get a scale Holo figure, but I'm glad I gave this one a miss. Great review though!

Emeep (Il y a 1 an) #32298723I hope so too, there can never be enough Holo! :3

victorviper (Il y a 1 an) #32305980Yeah, that's definitely a possibility. I don't think she will bin hard though, it's still Holo, even if it's not the prettiest figure of her (though I was way more disappointed by ITEM #485674 for some reason).
Her looking not lewd while being naked is something that actually fits her character imo, or maybe that's just me, but I never got that vibe from her (bei it in the novel, the manga or the anime).
That worries me too (besides it looks ugly), but the rod is also attached at a weird place since it supports her hair more on the side, but the actual weight seems to rest more in the center.

whobdaplaya (Il y a 1 an) #32352643I'm eagerly awaiting her too (still wwant to have the Holo of my dreams and maybe that one will be it finally).^^

Thanks for the review!
I'm holding out for this though : ITEM #525327

Thanks for this review. I'm currently kicking around whether or not to get this figure, as I was kind of surprised to see that Holo was still available post-release.

I don't think she'll bin, but any time a figure does not pre-sell out, there's always a change of a price drop secondhand.

Holo's body sculpt is really good, and I like how the figure does not really even look particularly lewd even though she is fully nude. The fact that they thought it necessary to include that support rod for the hair worries me though. Decisions, decisions...

I hear you really, if it wasn't Holo I wouldn't have done that either.
That's what I never actually manage to do (too afraid I guess), especially seeing where basically every other Holo figure went price-wise. :/
Anyway, good luck finding her!^^


Let's hope the GSC one will be colored and be ready for release soon!!
