Before anything else, acknowledgements are in order: special thanks to GHAOUL for the tip on where to spend money (and eat only bread for the rest of the month), and CLAUDANDUS my friend for making it happen (and end up eating only bread for the rest of the month).

Now that that’s out of the way,

BANZAI!!


YOU GUYS HAVE NO IDEA HOW HAPPY I AM,

THIS IS MY HOLY GRAIL, THIS IS IT,

I’ve been looking for the whole set since I’ve started collecting (almost 2 years in MFC too!), and getting at half of the set is way better than none!

Wait a minute this looked oddly familiar


I actually meant to condense this review with the FuRyu Love Live set but, in the end I decided I love ARIA more to type another article,

And so here we are,


Keep in mind that these are 2007, 2009 min figures, and compared to FuRyu, Toy’s Works was years ahead I guess.

I use this as comparison since I only have this one


And if we’re comparing on the same year, Toy’s Works and FuRyu are on different weight classes (granted their classification are kinda different),

But let’s move on,

As much as I love the series and them being grail, they’re objectively not the best,

At a distance, they still look great though


But with time considered, I think they aged pretty great compared to… okay fine I don’t have any other old figures (save for ITEM #9079)

Helloooo lady


Typical paint smudges are there, special mention to dirty hands, that one is pretty bad, the thing is I can’t tell if this is due to time, or quality control issue (most likely due to time though),

PRESIDENT’S HERE


She looks kinda derpy here, haha, no but in person she looks… just as derpy.

Quick! Distract everyone with a butt shot!

It’s not wooooorking


A little bit of stain, but no biggy,

You have 10 seconds to spot an error

DOUBLE GASPS


It annoys but me what can I do. I’m not sure if this is an oversight and every single (heh) one of her is like this but, if is a one-off quality control error, then fine, I concede,

Seasons a-changing!


I should’ve mentioned this but the first set was the 2007-2008 set, now if you’re familiar with the show, you’ll notice there is uniform changes and they made a second set for that,

Winter set was released on 2009! And I have to say this is an improvement,

NO NOTHING ALLOWED


Looking great there!

NO COMPLIMENTS ALLOWED


FuRyu really pales in comparison, considering I purchased them almost at the same price point and the production time difference,

I SAID NO


It’s shown a bit on some of the previous photos but I want to mention it specifically,

The logos on their sleeve and hats are made (applied? painted?) perfectly,

GAS-oh wait false alarm


NOW THIS is right,

Before anyone asks, yes, she is meant to be displayed off Alice’s head,

Of the six that I was able to purchase, Akari here is the best looking one,

I forgot why I took this photo but LOOK AT THOSE


And yes, President Aria is removable, so you can put him anywhere,

I SAID ANYWHERE


Well, they’re cheap, they’re cute, they give me warm fuzzy feelings every time I see them,

When I say ARIA is my favorite manga/anime of all time, I mean it’s the greatest of all time. OF ALL TIME.

They released new things this year too (YES), it’s been a while but I still can’t find them but, hopefully I’ll get to watch them soon (info here: www.animenewsne...

The only way you’ll hate this is if you’re IGN


It’s really worth watching if you’re looking for a feel good anime, the anime you’d watch for a chill time, read the manga too! Kozue makes absolutely beautiful art! Check out Amanchu! too, her latest work after ARIA,

I love Aria too ^^ Thanks for the review, has been looking for some nice pictures of them to decide how much I want them, considering they are older figures =)

I see what you did there..

And I am so envious, especially for Akari and Alice..

I never notice the error in Alice's glove before. Maybe that's why she looks extra grumpy? Mine is exactly like yours, so probably the all are.

It's a different kind of sensation when you get something from many years ago you have been wanting for so long. Congratulations for the grail!
