Review: Kiminozo Hayase Mitsuki 1/8 PVC figure by Good Smile Company


Reviewed by Panther

The lateness of this post hopefully does not mean the photos are going to be any less appealing; rather it was a day at the beach that nearly saw Mitsuki Hayase being swept away by a lecherous sea. This then is the September Figure of the Month, Mitsuki Hayase from the series Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, in a bikini outfit, by Good Smile Company. I know that originally, I planned for String Bikini Girl by Solid Theater to be the Figure of the Month, but that figure saw delays from the manufacturer, and she has been pushed back to October for her release, and thus Mitsuki was a good stand-in, as you will soon see.
