Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
The heat of Summer has really started to beat down, but I think that’s all the more reason to enjoy warm Japanese tea! I still enjoy my hot drinks even on the hottest of days! Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Phat! Company’s 1/8th Scale…
From the anime series ‘IDOLM@STER’ comes a 1/8th scale figure of the withdrawn idol, Yukiho Hagiwara! 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 features Yukiho just as a gust of wind blows across her, blowing her hat and dress to the side for a very dynamic pose. The paintwork has also been carefully done to bring out a refreshingly fresh atmosphere to the figure!
The slightly despondent idol from 765 Production has been sculpted in a lovely dynamic scale figure! ♡
The figure captures the instant that a gust of wind blows across her, blowing the hat from her head! The pose is based on the illustration by director Atsushi Nishigori found on the 2nd volume of the Blu-ray & DVD jacket for the anime series! Also note the way her skirt is blowing about in the sudden gust of wind – the sculpting is meticulous! Even her short bob cut hairstyle is blowing to the side – I can just imagine her voice… “Hou….”
It’s rather hard to express the dynamic feel in words! It just looks so well done like she really is in mid-movement… not to mention it’s a great representation of the original illustration! (ﾉω･､)
Her outfit is actually very simple – just a plain blouse and skirt, but the gradient applied to the skirt and the details in the sculpting create something that is hard to describe as ‘plain’. It looks lovely! ε=(｡・д・｡)
Just look at the fluttering movement!
The gradient paintwork just adds to dynamic effect! (/ω＼)
Not to mention that her lovely legs inside the skirt have also been very nicely sculpted too! Definitely a highlight for me…!
The light colors of outfit also have a very refreshing, Summer feeling!
By the way, this marks the 7th figure in Phat!’s IDOLM@STER BD/DVD Jacket Series!
Let’s take a look at all the figures in the series so far! ε=(｡・д・｡)

…and Yukiho is lucky number seven!
Which means there are only five members left!
Who will be next Phat-san?! I can’t wait to find out…
But let’s get back to Yukiho for now! (*´Д｀)
Just look at that adorable expression! I want to protect her!! I really wish I could pat her on the head, or put my hand on her cheek…!
Also note the detail on her hat!
The weaved appearance has been preserved so nicely!
It’s so nice to see this amount of detail put into the smaller details of the figure! Also note the cute ribbon! You can really see that the sculptor has put his love into his work!
One more thing I have to show!
Even the metal fastener on the inside of the bad has been included!
Makoto Kikuchi amazed me with the fact that even the inner side of her hoodie has been faithfully included, but Yukiho has kept my expectations up for the series! Be sure to take a nice close look at all the details when you add her to your collection!
Enjoy her gentle smile by your side all the time! ♡
