Makoto Kikuchi

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

My love for marshmallows has calmed down a bit, but I’m now addicted to popcorn! If this continues I’m going to have some problems in the weight department!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

The 1/8th scale…

Makoto Kikuchi

From the anime series ‘IDOLM@STER’ comes a 1/8th scale figure of the boyish idol, Makoto Kikuchi! The pose is based on the illustration by director Atsushi Nishigori seen on the 2nd volume of the Blu-ray & DVD jacket for the anime series.

The figure has been slightly altered into a standing pose, but still faithfully keeps to the original illustration! It captures both her boyish charm as well as her softer feminine features, ready for fans to enjoy!

Ooooooooohhh!! (´□`。)

The tomboyish idol with a rather husky voice, Makoto Kikuchi from 765 Production! ♥︎

The pose is based on the 2nd volume Blu-ray & DVD jacket, which featured Makoto is a lying pose! The pose has been worked around by the artisan’s of Phat! Company to transform it into a standing pose! 

My eyes just to the bare skin so quickly…!! 

Her eyes have a very confident look that suits her tomboyish personality! But with that said, her body certainly has some sexy points that show off her feminine side! Let’s see how she looks from the back! ♪

The dynamic sculptwork of the outfit and the creases are amazing!

That together with the hair and the details of her shoes, bag and other accessories… everything is so intricately made!  (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

The way her tank top is sculpted makes it look so soft and silky, and the curves of her slender body that are peeking through it are a delicious sight!

Even areas that can’t be seen easily front the front, like the inside of the jumper…

Can you see that letter ‘N’?! <○><○>

Fans of the series will know! This DVD jacket series really has been on point when it comes to the details! Something I love seeing on my figures!! ♡

For those who don’t know, this is actually the 6th figure in the ongoing Anime DVD/Blu-ray Jacket Illustration Series by Phat! Company! ☆

Let’s take a look at the previous releases in the series! (σ・∀・)σ

I can’t wait to see what figure will come next! I wonder who the next one will be! φ(.. ) Anyway, let’s get back to Makoto with an angle from above! ♪

This angle gets you a good look at her dainty fingers as well as her stomach, armpit and collarbone! It’s amazing how much a tank top can reveal from above!

Even the areas that were never visible on the original illustration can be enjoyed with the figure! That’s what makes figures so special! (`・ω・´)ゞ

Else you can try the opposite and go for a low angle! Look at the details on the watch and other accessories! Definitely a figure that can be enjoyed from any angle!

The sculptor for this series is Yusuke Masaki, and he really has shown off his skill and love for the series with these figures! Makoto is certainly no exception!

I personally want to emphasize her stomach area…

The soft, natural curves are perfect!!

I could really stare at her for hours on end!! Thank you for another amazing figure, Phat! company!! (´□`。)

Be sure to take a nice close look once you’ve added her to your collection! ♡
