Since I haven’t go to arcade for like around 7-8 years, I never see this game before. I like fighting games (Street Fighter to be exact) and shooting games a lot, recently I fell in love with Touhou. Just like Touhou, this game is vertically-scrolling danmaku ( (弾幕, literally “bullet curtain” ) shooting game. The game looks really interesting! I would love to try it if next time I go to arcade (but when?). =D

This Reco figure looks good. I love her hair and those figure lines. But the price tag is scary. Just like the 1/7 GSC Saber Lily, 9,800 yen is crazy IMO. (T T.

——Description from Manufacturer——

The gentle-hearted princess who protects the forest.

From the maniac shooter game of long standing fame, “Mushihime-sama Futari” comes a 1/7 scale PVC figure of the deity of “Shunshu ga Mori”, who is also the main character of the game, Reco!

She has an innocent smiling face suited to her personality, but in contrast are her bold, eye-catching proportions. The gentle princess will make you feel loved with this charmingly sculpted figure, positioned in a nicely balanced supple position. Her most well known feature – her long pigtails – are made from a clear plastic, but still keep a brilliantly vivid color. Careful detail has been added to areas such as her brooch and belt, making even the smallest areas a pleasure to look at.
