Thanks~!
I typed "Wolf" and "Spice" into the search. Safer than typing either of HoRo's names.

Actually, now that I look at the closeups of the figure at HLJ -- I'm less impressed.
I like the pose and choice of clothing.... but the detail work is lacking and the face seems generic rather than Horo. Makes me feel better about letting it slide and waiting.
Yeah, when I first saw the figure I was disappointed. It hasn't grown on me. I'll probably never buy it, even though I'm a massive fag for Horo.

I'll wager my entire fig collection for a nude Horo fig sometime later this year to early next.

Well, after seeing the close up, I'm not so keen on spending 60+$ for it.. and what mostly put me off is the lack of her beautiful tail swinging in the air (we can only see a little bit of it, the rest is hidden under skirt )

I'll argue they've over-lolied her as well *based* on the official artwork on the novels and in the manga. So, tail-fail, face--fail, on.model.reference with respect to the novel art -- fail.

Right... next figure please?

My words exactly...
You, know it's not a bad figure, but it totally lack that 'something' that Horo has... (as Vexx said, a novel Horo is beter)

Horo is nicely done in that figure, and I like the apple on the sash. It's an amusing touch. But the dress reminds me too much of Chloe's dress. I'd rather see Horo wearing something else.

Hmmm... the first figure's tail suck, I agree with Masanori Ota. Her face is not too bad, I think.
The second, light dressed figure very very cute. But the tail also suck. Why can't make a good tail? This is one of the most important 'pieces' of Horo.... Awww.

Anyway I'll buy a Horo figure, i missed her for my collection so much.
If I must wait, I can wait a really good one...

There is this Horo figure coming out in late April:



- 1/6 scale
- Castoff-able
- 9,240 yen
- Sculpt by MIC

It's not too good-looking for the scale and price, in my opinion... But you can get Horo a la natural out of it.

I'm not sure who the maker is, but it's probably not Goodsmile Company, which also announced a Horo figure release later this year.

It is a great IDEA... but yeah the execution, especially the face, seems cheap.

The pose is pretty nice though....

I still think that the Kotobukiya one is the best right now....

When can I expect a figure release for the manga version of Horo ?

If one here will take a look at the scan of the latest chapter of the manga, he will surly agree that Horo is best represented in the manga.

She definitely has some fabulous facial expressions in the manga (and the illustrations in the light novel). They weren't able to 100% transfer those looks to the anime adaptation.

I reserved the whole set of DVD.
I want series to continue with a season 2 and a season 3 until Horo arrives at Yoitsu.

Since CM of DVD was interesting, I subtitled them.
CM also changes according to advance of a story.
There is no Nora version yet.

Episode1

Episode2

Episode4

Episode5

Please be patient, even if translation is strange.
