[Picture Roll] Figma 99- Kirino Kousaka

Here I am with my newest Robo Gato (El Paso's very own anime goods, Hello Kitty and Gundam shop) purchase, the 99th addition to Goodsmile Company's Figma line of pose-able anime figures- Kirino Kousaka from the anime My Little Sister Can't be This Cute. Here are a few pictures from Goodsmile's site:

And here is a breakdown of what she comes with thanks to Varg:

As you can see, she comes with a school bag, two extra faces, two DVD's (not pictured is a sticker sheet with 3 stickers of each shown), a pair of socks, her signature crossed arms and a rack of hands. Also not pictured is the signature Figma tree stand and zip lock bag for all these spare pieces.

About My Little Sister Can't be This Cute:
The Japanese title for this show is "Ore no Imōto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai," known as Oreimo for short. It is based on a light novel series of the same name and ran for 12 episodes followed by a 4 alternate ending ova. A manga adaptation started this month as well. The novel series has been seen as controversial and the anime was well received in Japan. Aniplex USA picked up the English rights for the show of which you can watch legally for free on ANN.

Kyousuke Kousaka, a normal seventeen-year-old high school student, hasn't gotten along with his younger sister, Kirino, in years. For longer than he can remember, Kirino has ignored his comings and goings and looked at him with spurning eyes. It seemed as if the relationship between Kyousuke and his sister, now fourteen, would continue this way forever. One day, however, Kyousuke finds a dvd case of a magical girl anime entitled Hoshikuzu Witch Merle (Stardust Witch Merle), which had fallen into the entranceway of his house. To Kyousuke's surprise, inside the case is a hidden adult video game titled Imouto to Koishiyo! (Love with Little Sister!). Kyousuke attempts to fish out the culprit who dropped the case by bringing up the topic of magical girl anime at the family dinner table. All that comes out is a strong negative reaction from his parents, especially his anti-otaku policeman father. That night, Kirino bursts into Kyousuke's room and, in perhaps the first conversation she has initiated with him in years, says they "have things to talk about." Kirino brings Kyousuke to her room and shows him an extensive collection of moe anime and lolicon bishoujo games she has been collecting in secret.
