Kyouka Midarezaki the autocratic, spastic yet loving "wife/mother" hails from the anime/novels/manga Kyouran Kazoku Nikki, or The Diary of a Crazed Family. She's now available in Nendoroid form. I bought her from Hobby Search for 3,167 Yen. She's still in stock now, so if she appeals to you after this review you can still purchase her there. Of course, another Kyouka figure has just been announced and I'm already eyeing that one up, see information about that over at wcloudx(kumo)'s blog. I already have a couple figures pre-ordered for May so it might be pushing it to get that one, but I'm very tempted, even though I'm very pleased with this one.
Kyouka comes with her "daughter" Gekka, the jellyfish. Gekka plays a pretty important part in the series and I think it's pretty awesome that they added her with this Nendo. Two of Gekka's arms(?) move on a ball joint, which is a nice added feature. Kyouka's ears are removable, but I chose to leave them on because they're part of what makes her unique, plus they leave holes behind. She has 3 heads, the crying face, angry face and normal face, as well as 2 extra arms. The quality is top notch, I didn't see a blotch of paint or a scratch anywhere. I took my pictures outside and a couple times she got knocked over by the wind and didn't take a beating, so she's pretty durable. Oh yeah, her tail is removable as well. I think her faces fit her personality very well, and I can't really decide which one I like best. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go separate her from Miku, she's stirring up some trouble.
Here's a little video of the OP of Kyouran Kazoku Nikki to give you an idea of her personality. Perhaps Riiana or I will do a review on the anime soon. The song is by MOSAIC.WAV who I plan on doing a post about one of these days also.
