Who among you guys have watched “Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai Season 1 and 2 (My Little Sister Can’t Be this Cute)?”
The one I will show you today is the famous character from that anime, Kirino Kousaka. She is a 14-year old younger sister with tsundere-like and cold attitude. She loves adult games with a lot of older brother/little sister themes and owns other goods related to Meruru (a show in the anime). In short, she is an otaku.
This figure is Cu-Poche Kirino Kousaka by Kotobukiya and sculpted by Hideaki Ohya. Cu-poche is highly poseable and articulated giving you various stances and cute poses.
I received this adorable little one last week and I’ve been preparing for her set since I was told that they’ll be sending her. Special thanks to Kotobukiya for this figure.
I have been asked if Cu-Poche can stand on its own even without the stand. Yes, it can but it will limit its posing so I use my own technique. That technique is using hook wires or that plastic thing that connects the figure to its base so I can get the pose that I want. I Photoshop visible wires/stand if seen on my photos.
Almost everything in this set is hand-made . I tried to recreate scenes similar to the anime. From drawers, bed, curtain to Computer. I used few re-ment miniatures for room decoration. If you are a toy collector or a gamer otaku you can probably relate on how she reacts on each photos. Because I do, that’s so me whenever I get a package full of figures.
Tiny figure boxes and pc game boxes are papercraft. I scanned my Cu-Poche boxes, googled Kotobukiya figure images and then make a box template using those images via Photoshop. Does it seem like a lot of work to do? Hmm maybe, maybe not. It depends on your time and mood actually.
I made some of these box templates downloadable, just click HERE. It’s up to you to re-size it however big you want the boxes to be. Download Kirino’s Pink Laptop HERE. You can print it on any paper, but I used photo paper and it didn’t allow me to fold the laptop to close. Anyway, happy paper folding! ^^.
These photos are featured on Kotobukiya Facebook page. OMG! ^_^
Anyway, here ya go!
My Little Sister Can’t be this cute whenever she gets new figures and PC games!
I enjoyed taking her photos and posing her around. If you play with the figure’s legs, she can actually sit like the last photo. Those are things that you can’t do with other chibi figures. Look, she looks.. alive! 🙂
I hope Kotobukiya will make Cu-Poche Kuroneko, Saori and Ayase. Well, I do hope they also make male character Cu-Poche to match these girls.
That’s all for today!
