Today’s main feature…!
Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
Today I’m going to be taking a look at…
The 1/8th Scale…
|From the popular anime series ‘Your lie in April’ comes a 1/8th scale figure of Kaori Miyazono. The figure is based on an illustration drawn by the original creator of the series, Naoshi Arakawa. It captures the normally energetic Kaori with a slightly uncertain smile on her face.
The violin she holds in her arms has been intricately sculpted based on a real violin, and even the details and texture of her shoes have been carefully thought out. Careful attention has been given to even the smallest parts of the accessories and details of her clothes to create a figure of Kaori that fans will be proud to own.
From the lovely story that was broadcast at the very start of this year comes a 1/8th scale figure of the free-spirited heroine who can have a bit of a short temper, Kaori Miyazono! ♡
Apologies for the wait since her debut at AnimeJapan 2015!
At last the time has come for preorders for this amazing figure to open, so let me take a closer look for everyone! Her Tatsusumi Middle School Uniform has been beautifully sculpted with it’s grey blazer, blue blouse and red and white neck tie!
The creases in her sleeves and the loose tie really look amazing, and the use of colors really captures the gentle feeling of the character designs and Kaori’s character in particular!
The violin bow she holds as well as the violin held under her arm are both incredibly detailed! Σ(･ω･ﾉ)ﾉ
The textures of the various parts of the figure are also really well done! The fabric of her clothes looks like it should actually be soft to the touch, and the shining, polished look of the violin makes it look so very realistic! (●´ω｀●)
Her nails have been painted a lovely light pink! ♪
Just think of all the passionate violin performances these fingers have made!! °・(ノД｀)・°・
But anyway, let’s take a bit to take a look at the heart of the figure…
Her beautiful expression!
Even though she is without a doubt smiling… why is it that there is something sad about her smile that gives the feeling this mysterious feeling that is so hard to look away from!! ・(ノД｀)・°・
She looks fantastic from the back too!
Her long blond hair is gently blowing in the Spring breeze, with each of the strands carefully sculpted all the way down to the bottom… plus that amazing soft looking skin behind her knees… the sculpting is one thing, but the paintwork is also simply stunning! Intricate use of gradients makes for such a detailed appearance! (/ω＼)
The figure was actually based on an illustration made by Naoshi Arakawa!!
Thank you so much!!!
Plus another thank you and so much praise for the sculptor and painter of the figure who really brought out the beauty of Kaori in the figure… Chikai (Windflower)!♡
Kao-chan’s unique expression and incredible details… you need to sit down and take a nice long look at them for yourself!
There are a couple of angles that I didn’t include in my photos… and well… you know!! I’m sure you can guess!!
A figure that faithfully brings out the ‘Your lie in April’ world as well as Kaori’s character to keep by your side!!
The 1/8th Scale…

Plus, orders from the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a tapestry illustrated by Naoshi Arakawa as a bonus!!
