Infinite Stratos IS インフィニット・ストラトス definitely is the anime that got me hooked to armored girls related anime. It's the kind of harem anime that followed a typical trend of male protagonist being the weak gender. Surrounded by gals and most often caught up in unlucky (LUCKY) intimate mishaps with them. Charlotte Dunois would say to be the character that come close as the female protagonist with substantial appearance after Houki Shinonono. She was introduced as the first year student cadet representing France at the IS academy. Charlotte was transferred to the IS Academy disguised as a boy called "Charles". Her encounter with Ichika Orimura slowly revealed her gentle and feminine side. 

It's my first review on Bandai's non-scale, Armor Girls Project (AGP) figure so pardon me for my inexperience. There were a lot of pics taken as such I'm going to break them in parts on the review. I will do Charlotte Dunois 8" action figure in her pilot suit before moving onto her gear (Rafael Revive Custom II). Released in a set with armor parts, Charlotte Dunois action figure come with two interchangeable faces, three pairs of regular hands, four pairs of IS hands and a special display stand.

In terms of body proportionality, my comment would be the figure seems to have given Charlotte a more shapely body as I could recall the Charlotte being more flat-chested based on my male instinct. 0_0 ... No complain on the face expression and paint works however the figure seems difficult to self balance without the aid of stand and the arm joints kind of frail. Maybe this costly action figure ain't my so I might be too cautious when handling it. Lol... Courtesy of Stanley...

i think i have seen at least one anime series related with this genre, although the main female character was indeed a cyborg instead of a human with armor...

this figure seem to be something in the middle of the anime character of the picture on top and the one portrayed in the illustration of the next picture... obviously she’s a teenager (probably 15yo or 16yo) hence, her shape must be less voluptuous, but i guess it was a move to draw the attention of adult male collectors (HEHEHE)...

the work on the face is quite nice and realistic (according to the anime), but the suit is different, since the original has more "flesh" exposed, yet i guess it’s because is a custom version... i will be waiting for the next publication on this topic !!!... =)
