My underclassman can’t be this cute in the swimsuit – Kuroneko by Kotobukiya

Today I’ll show you the latest addition to my collection of cute PVC girls – Kuroneko (or Gokou Ruri) from anime series “My Little Sister Can`t Be This Cute”. This figure come in the right time as the second season of said series is airing right now in spring of 2013.

But first, I want to apologize for quality of the photos in this post cause I took them late in the evening with four different light sources and screwed up white balance pretty badly.

Oh well, lets get back to our lovely Kuroneko and look thoroughly at her rendition by Kotobukiya.



Pictures that printed on the box are really good and looks pretty close to actual figure inside, capturing all the charm points of it.


Also, Kotobukiya thankfully provide us with translucent window at the back side of the box, so we can personally appreciate sculpturing of those parts that are little inconvenient to put on the box as illustrations.


I like how they doesn’t put any wrapping around her face so we can see how cute it is with light blushing and that mole under her eye.

Lets take her out of the box. As always, figure itself come wrapped in plastic and rest inside a hard protective case. There are also stand, skirt and pair of cute little flip-flops.

Now when figure is taken out of protective case I must say this bikini Kuroneko wearing is pretty lewd. I wonder how it would stay in place in real life with all those strings on the top.


Yep, definitely very lewd.

Overall it’s pretty great figure with awesome proportions from every angles, so no complains here.

Does that stripped bow come with swimsuit or Kuroneko made it herself?


One of the best angles that I find for this figure clearly shows us that Kuroneko, in fact, have breasts.


And here is a full-height shot from above. (don’t mind my Spyder colorimeter in the back)

I must admit how detailed midriff section is made in this figure. At the top there are traces of ribs, great bellybutton and hips below.


Kotobukiya continue to shows great attention to details on fingernails and those cute little feet.


Also, those strings on the top are just awesome! How anybody couldn’t look at that curvature all day long?

Sadly, not everything is perfect with this figure. On those two pictures you can clearly see traces of casting process on the side of the figure body and hand. But, you could see it only under light falling from certain direction, so it’s not that bad after all.


Figure come with the skirt which you can apply if you want. Figure looks great either way so it’s up to you.


At first it was little confusing how you should put that skirt on the figure because her legs were in the way. I even started to think that it’s probably some kind of factory defect that prevent me from putting skirt on. But this paper instruction shows that you need to remove one of the legs to put it on. That leg stick to figure so tight, that it needs to apply so much force to remove it, only by chance I didn’t broke whole figure instead. That’s why I didn’t retake all the photos when white balance settings appears wrong in the end – figure wouldn’t survive another disassemble.

DSC_3296Ok, lets take final look at our sweet Kuroneko by Kotobukiya. I should say that I really liked all those small details on the face, bikini and midriff of this figure. I don’t know if it because of how awesome is Kuroneko herself or it’s Kotobukiya’s sculpturing prowess, but it’s definitely a very beautiful figure.

All pictures was taken with my trusty Nikon D50 with outstanding AF Nikkor 35-135mm f:3.5-4.5 Macro Zoom lens.
