Today’s Main Feature…!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at Max Factory’s…

Ranko Kanzaki ~Rosenburg Engel~!

From the anime series ‘THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA GIRLS’ comes a 1/7th scale figure of Ranko Kanzaki. She has been sculpted in a dynamic pose based on her outfit from her solo unit promotional video, ‘Rosenburg Engel’.

The magnificent outfit makes use of pearl paint to faithfully recreate its eye-catching appearance. The wings make use of translucent parts for a more mystical appearance – bringing out the way Ranko sees the world in her figure. Be sure to add her to your collection!

“My dark power… the time has come for you to awaken!”

The chosen idol with the power of the ‘eye’ as a 1/7th scale figure dressed in one of her many Gothic-style outfits from the series!

The outfit is from her ‘Rosenburg Engel’ promotional video… and as you can see it is one very tight-fitting outfit! ♥

You make out her body’s beautiful curves so nicely thanks to the tight fit!

The wing parts make use of semi-translucent parts that slowly fade to a more solid color through a beautiful gradient! The way the light shines through them adds to that mysterious atmosphere that surrounds Ranko!

The twist in her hips and the gentle bumps on her bare back are also a treat for fans! (´□`。)

The  different in texture of the wings, outfit and bare skin as also been separated really effectively through both the sculpt and the paintwork! Both the skin and outfit look so smooth, yet they are definitely a different kind of smooth!

△ The heels on the boots also give a nice peek of skin just like on her back! ★

Another part of the sculpt that I really want to point out…

Those lovely curly twin tails!! 

The fact that the movement of the hair matches up with the twist in her hips gives the whole figure a nice dynamic feeling! (。・ω・)ノ゙

The light and airy feeling of her hair is also so nice with those twirls bouncing on the ends! I’m sure they are going to give the manufacturing team a hard time!!

Also, if we look a little closer at her outfit you can see the details of the accessory at her neck and the frills on the edge of her arm cover… the sculpting is really magnificent! (●´ω`●)

△The shape of her armpit on the right is also lovely!

Last but not least a full look at her from the back! ♡

△ The paintwork and reflection of light makes the figure look
fresh no matter what angle you choose to look from! ★

Enjoy the dark charm of the mysterious Ranko in your collection!! ♥︎

♥︎ Today’s Date ♥︎

I went on a hide-and-seek date with Dayo-san, but she wanted to see the cherry blossoms so much that she popped out from her hiding spot! Those eyes… they are the eyes of a cherry blossom hunter.
