Today I’m gonna talk about FREEing’s Ookami Ryouko. Incidentally she is the first ever figure that I buy with my own money. By the way the title of this post is a spoof on Grandma, why do you have such big teeth?, or something like that.
Ryouko is from the anime Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi, which I believe is a play on Snow White and the seven dwarfs. The anime portrays fables spin offs in modern settings, like little red riding hood, 3 little pigs and the like. I liked the anime well enough but I really liked Ryouko’s character design, she’s supposed to be the big bad wolf. Though she’s not bad at all.
She is made by FREEing, which for the longest time I thought was just a subsidiary under under Good Smile Company, but I believe it’s the moniker of the sculptor as well. I’ve always liked FREEing’s stuff. Long before I ever considered buying figures I felt tempted to purchase his work, but I never had the money for it. But now I work!
I really Like royoko’s face. I dig her tsurime. You can really appreciate the sculpting from this angle.
A clearer shot of the midriff.
Originally I wasn’t going to post a panty-shoot because it doesn’t really suit Ryouko’s character but she was so detailed that I just had to share.
In the end I am pleased with my first figure. I really enjoyed taking photos of it. However I get this feeling that something is missing with scaled figures. I think I’ve played too much with Miette’s Figmas and I miss making the kooky poses. Until next time!
