Happy New Year readers of Nekomagic, and welcome to one of the site’s first articles of the year. Today I have the pleasure of reviewing the relatively new “re-release” of Tae Kokuten. I say “re-release,” but in actuality it’s a re-pose and size up from the previous figure here.

First off, I would like to say this is one of the more funner reviews/figures that I’ve had the pleasure to review because of all the included accessories and alternative pose parts. Especially the ducks, the ducks are really cute. Included are 5 ducks; 3 yellow, 1 grey, 1 white mama duck, a soap bubble, bathhouse tag, washing tub, towel, and 3 arms are included.

What I liked when I first opened the box was the instructions, which are printed in English. It shows that Orchid Seed knows their demographics and cares about their overseas customers experience. While not printed with the best of English, the loose translation and accompanying pictures does ease the burden for those wishing to play around with her alternative poses.

The first thing we see in this review is the size… at 1/5 scale, she is huge! Even at 1/7, her “older” sister pales in size and detail comparison.

At this point we have to give credit to Orchid Seed for casting a good 75% of her as a single piece; only the arms and head are removable. That is a good solid chunk of PVC, giving Tae a good bottom-up weight to prevent her from sliding about if she were to do so. A larger cast also means more detail, and that is apparent in her limbs, fingers, toes, etc. Each of her toes and fingers are well defined, and her limbs and body are sculpted with a “real” prepubescent girl in mind. What I mean by that is that parts of the body where there should be muscle/fat are perfectly sculpted, slight rib cage contour, toned stomach section, and appropriate breasts for girls her age.

One area of concern in the design process is where they decided to have the casting moulds come together, it’s very apparent in her toes where the moulds met as there are casting lines and air bubbles in the finished product. As she faces away from you when viewed, the casting lines on top of her left toes are not seen, which hides the imperfection. This can be seen as a saving grace if you may.

There are also slight flashing for the various arm parts, especially in the finger areas where it is most tricky for factory workers to clean up in a timely manner. Any flashing issues can easily be taken care of at home by steady hand and xacto knife.

Personally, I feel the head is the best part of the figure. Her cute facial expression borders on embarrassment and bewilderment. Her eyes are perfectly painted, and the slight pink blush applied on the cheeks adds to the cuteness of her chubby face. Hair is always tough to sculpt as its impossible to do it strand per strand, but Orchid Seed has managed to add enough detail to her hair and buns to give it a natural “frazzled” look. The hair colour is straight black, any highlights or different shades you might see is an optical “illusion” caused by differences in depth and angle.

It comes as no surprise that this Tae, like her predecessor is a cast-off able ero figure…Duh. As I briefly discussed earlier, her breasts are well sculpted with the the perfect pink nipple/areola paint job. Like any girl her age, her “vajayjay” is more or less a slit with a slight protrusion of the clitoral hood.

Her anus is defined by a pink pinhole in the appropriate spot. Her nether region can be hidden by the provided towel accessory to make her more palatable for “normal” on-lookers.

The paint job across the board is smooth. Slight pink blush where it’s needed, her finger and toe nails are also painted and defined. Painting hair is usually very difficult as it needs to be thin to retain the sculpted detail. The previous Tae hair job is a prime example of a improper, thick coat where most of the sculpted detail and sheen is lost and not as visible as they are on the newer model.

I have already listed some criticisms throughout this review, but the last review is mostly a general gripe about how these nude/castoffable figures are presented and assembled. In pretty much 95% of castoffable figures, the only way for designers and sculptors to attach limbs such as arms and legs is via “bangles” or circlets.

These bangles or circlets are not present in the majority of the source material, because they were not drawn to be a figure in mind. Therefore they are added in the sculpting of castoffable figures to allow for such a gimmick.

Without these bangles or circlets, nude figures with complex poses cannot be casted as a single object without major post-production clean-up, or hideous joint lines where the limbs are joined. In this case, Tae is depicted what looks like a scrunchy, but like….a scrunchy? Why not something like water wings, or something similarly appropriate to the setting… in the end, this is just a personal and general criticism for all castoffable figures.

I actually enjoyed this version of Tae, think of it as a HD version of the previous. The colouring and sculpt is consistent throughout the figure, and the included accessories make her a great value for any collector who displays their figures. Despite Tae being a nude figure, it doesn’t immediately scream indecent, but something along the lines of innocence and purity. I think we have to commend Orchid Seed for producing a well conceived product that is faithful to the original source material.

A pure Nine, out of Ten.
