Now available for preorder…
Hatsune Miku: Deep Sea Girl ver.!
From Yuuyu-P’s popular song with over a million views on Nico Nico Douga, ‘Deep Sea Girl’ comes a 1/8th scale of Hatsune Miku! The figure is based on the beautiful illustration by Haruyo, drawn in commemoration of the song being selected as a part of the Million Saisei & EXIT TUNES PRESENTS vocalodream album.
Miku is posed sitting at the bottom of the deep sea, with her beautiful pale skin contrasting with her jet black dress. Her hair and the coral around her gently sways in the ocean current, beautifully painting an underwater scene for fans to enjoy.
She has come out looking absolutely stunning!!
The sculpting, paintwork, base and smaller parts like the coral reefs are all perfect!
This figure managed to get the most views during the ‘Owarema 10’ that look place during the live WonHobby broadcast in February! It’s also the product that GSC has been diligently working on this entire year!
Today I’ll be giving everyone a closer look at all the areas on the figure that I like the most! There are quite a few photos, so take your time and enjoy!
But before I begin the review… (・ω・)ﾉ
Here is the original illustration by Haruyo-san!
Miku under the sea… she’s absolutely beautiful! Just look at her hair and dress floating about in the water as she sits on some coral covered rocks! Everything that makes this illustration so special has been transformed into figure form wonderfully – both fans of ‘Deep Sea Girl’ as well as those who are just figure fans will be in awe when they see this lovely figure in person!
Such an angelic smile!
Her head is tilted slightly to the side with such a gentle smiling expression.
She really looks just like an angel!! (*゜∀゜)=3
It’s so gentle that I actually get a bit of a motherly feeling from it… I imagine this is what the smile of the holy mother would look like!
Her dainty feet are also lovely!
The right foot is stretched out, while the left foot is curled a little inward… but both of them have such intricate toes! If you look really close you can even see she has a very light pink pedicure! The detail is unbelievable!
While it’s quite hard to see in this photo, you can even make out the anklebone when you look close up! It looks fantastic!
This is how she looks from above!
You get a really good feeling for the volume from this angle! She’s huge!! (゜∀゜)
But even more important than the size is the fact that the overall balance of the figure and use of space all comes together so nicely! This is what separates a good sculptor from a great one!
By the way, in case you missed it, I did a separate blog yesterday featuring a 360 degree spin around Deep Sea Girl Miku. Be sure to check it out if you missed it!
A 360 Degree Look at Hatsune Miku: Deep Sea Girl ver.
The line from her neck down her back is lovely!
Just looking at the thin neck and shoulders makes me want to jump at her from behind and give her a hug!! The pale, soft looking skin has a nice feminine feeling to it as well! （*´∀｀*）
Once again I have to point out the fluttering hem of the dress as well as her twisting twin-tails! You can see them nicely from this angle!
Let’s try a bit of a lower angle!
Looking down on Miku from above is a wonderful way to enjoy all the details, but looking up at her from below gives you the feeling that you’re under the water together with her! I quite like the view from down here!
My eyes seem to wander straight toward her lower legs when I look at this photo! They’re so smooth and shiny!!
Unbelievably detailed fingertips! Σ(ﾟДﾟ;）
How can just looking at her fingers be so captivating?!
The way her hands are put together, the angles of her wrists and those dainty little fingers… they look even more realistic than a real girl’s hands!! Plus the contrast that comes from the black dress and the pale skin is fantastic, and just look at that slight sunken area below her collarbone…
She’s beautiful… simply beautiful!!! (´ー`)
She’ll show you a number of expressions!
Depending on the angle you choose to look at her from, the feeling behind her expression can change quite drastically. Plus Miku herself isn’t the only part of this figure, the coral reefs and rocks around her that create her stand are also lovely, and the paintwork is incredible! (((ﾟДﾟ)))
This figure has every bit of GSC’s skill and technique put into it, making a one-of-a-kind figure! If you decide to pick her up, be sure to take your time and enjoy her from every possible angle you can find!
What part do you like the most about her?
I just want to say “Everything!” when I see a question like that. :P
But if I had to pick something, I’d say that the legs and armpits are my absolute best parts! I’m also quite fond of the shadowed areas where her skin meets the black dress – particularly around her breast area. Aki, the president of GSC, said his favorite part was the her spine!
