1/8th Scale Honoka Kousaka

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’ve recently found out how delicious agemanju are! Whoever though of that way to them is a genius!

But anyway… today we’re going to be taking a look at the 1/8th scale…

Honoka Kousaka!

From the popular anime series ‘Love Live!’ comes a 1/8th scale of the idol group μ’s leader, Honoka Kousaka! She is posed wearing her outfit from the anime’s first opening theme! The figure captures Honoka in mid-performance, showing off her optimistic side with a lovable smile – one of the many reasons she makes such a great idol!

Her outfit has been detailed down to the most intricate of frills, and both the outfit and her hair are sculpted dynamically to show her moving about during her live performance! A figure filled with charm for all Love Live fans to enjoy!

Honoka-chaaaan!!! (*´▽`*)

It’s been quite awhile since she was first revealed, but she’s finally ready to go up for preorder! A figure of Honoka wearing the lovely outfit from the “Bokura wa Ima no Naka de” opening theme of the 1st season! Taking a nice close look at this figure made me realise just how cute the outfit is! ♡

From the right side you get a nice view of all the different frills on her outfit, each dynamically scupted to capture the instant of motion! (。・ω・)ノ゙
… not to mention her lovely, healthy looking thighs!

Even her fingernails have been carefully detailed…! (`・ω・´)ゞ

The large ribbon on her chest as well as the collarbone you can see in the opening above it! Delicious!!

The smaller frills on her blouse are also all carefully sculpted! The chequered line on her skirt and the little ornaments all over the outfit all come together so nicely! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

There is a little gap between her blouse and skirt which lets you get a little peek at her hips! ( -ノェ-)

I also personally love the close fit of the blouse! ♡

(・∀・) “The front also shows off some skin, including her belly button!”

We’re joined by the product’s planner, Hamako!!

(・∀・) “The black lace areas of her outfit are made using clear parts which give a bit of a transparent effect to enjoy!”

The reverse side of her knees also look amazing… (*´Д`)
You can even make out her skin through the black stockings!

(・∀・) “Yep, she really has a nice body to enjoy… but personally it’s her expression that really brings out the figure for me!”

(・∀・) “She looks so optimistic with a smile that will inspire anyone!! It captures Honoka perfectly!”

Honoka’s lively personality comes out in full force! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

(・∀・) “The expression was done by Eco-shi from the production team!”

Ooh! We should see what he has to say too!!
\ GSC Production Team Summon: Eco-shi!! /

(・∀・) “Hello! I’m Eco! I’m from the painting team focusing mainly on expressions!”

How was working on Honoka-chan for you? (`・ω・´)

(・∀・) “The shape and size of Honoka-chan’s eyes are strangely different betweem illustrations. They all look great, but it made it quite difficult to decide on how to make the eyes look on the figure!”

(・∀・) “But in order to create the perfect Honoka-chan, I studied all sorts of different illustrations of her, and listened to her songs over and over again!

…? ( ゚д゚)
I understand how looking through various illustrations can help… but why were you listening to her songs?!

(・∀・) “Hmmm… the expression needed to capture Honoka while she was singing, and as a Love Live! fan I’m a big fan of her voice so it just seemed natural. I wanted people to look at this figure and imagine Honoka’s voice playing through their head!

As expected of a Love Live fan and member of the GSC Love Live club! Looking at her expression really does bring out her enthusiastic voice in my mind!

Whilst the pose isn’t anything too complex, it’s still overflowing with character! That together with the posing and outfit all come together for an astounding figure!

(・∀・) “I hope fans will be able to see the effort and love that has gone into the making of this figure! I really think it captures Honoka’s charm!”

Enough to make you hear her singing voice…! ♪
