A long while ago I became fascinated with figures from Peace @ Pieces, I was not able to put my finger on what was drawing me to them though I was even more confused when I searched and found it was an eroge game @_@. Although ironically it lead to me being able to pinpoint my attraction as I realized all of the character designs were by Noizi Ito (Shakugan no Shana, Melancholy of Suzumiya and my personal favorite Nanatsuiro Drops).
There were five full-sized figures from the show, released by two different companies: Good Smile Company and Alter. Alter released a figures of Hikaru, Nagi and Death-sensei all in their death costumes (I am guessing it is somethinglike a power up).
Here are the Alter figures…
Nagi was the second alter figure released but she was that really grabbed my attention, I mean the figure is really well done but extremely bizarre her clothes are weird not to mention that it barely covers the vital bits, she has a strange head piece and I have no idea to this day what the hell it is she is supposed to be sitting on. I debated about getting her for a long time because she is just so bizarre but I really don’t regret my decision.
Hikaru- This one is probably the cutest of the three. I got her soon after getting Nagi and she is a favorite figure of mine. Luckily I was able to track this one down without that much of a hassle.
Death-sensei – I decided I wanted this figure a bit too late, all her preorders had filled up so I figured I would get her upon release and then kind of forgot about her again. I decided I did in fact want her but at that point she was sold out almost everywhere, I ordered her and some other things at one store but they sold out of her (still charged me though >_< ) but I was finally able to acquire her.
Good Smile Company-While Alter released the girls in their death costumes, Good Smile Company released them in their school uniforms.
Nagi- One of my favorite Good Smile Company figures, it is perfect in it’s simplicity. All the details are flawless and the hair is exceptionally well done. This figure is pretty sought after I lucked into one for cheap because she had a damaged box (one corner had the slightest crinkle).
Which brings me to why I made this post to begin with. I finally managed to track down my current most wanted anime figure and she was the last one I didn’t own. I have been looking for this figure for a little over a year so I am very happy I managed to finally get her, I had spotted her for sale a few times on different auction sites but she always disappeared within seconds of going up. Yesterday I lucked in to her.
