Kotobukiya - 1/12 Scale
Straight from the "I never thought I'd see that get made" department comes Kotobukiya and this lovely figure from the OVA One Off, featuring the short series' lead, Haruno Shiozaki. With only a handful of episodes running just fifteen minutes a piece, there's certainly not a lot of time to build up a fanbase. Nonetheless, Kotobukiya saw some appeal there, and with a look at this set I can't say I blame them.
Amidst all the over the top figures out there, it's nice to see something so downright normal, just a girl and her beloved Honda Giorno. The simplistic art style is both appealing and quite suitable for such a tiny scale figure, and Koto's managed a lot of detail particularly in terms of the Honda itself.
While it may not be as racy a pair as Saber and her "motored cuirassier", Haruno definitely has a unique appeal that's hard to pass up. You'll be able to pick her up come May for about ¥7,030.
