Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere - Jizuri Suzaku Figure + Horizon Ariadust Figure

Jizuri Suzaku (地摺朱雀 printed on the box)

With Horizon Ariadust trading figure

Jizuri Suzaku's foot is of high heel and hawk-like-claw toes

Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere is a Japanese light novel and I was exposed to the anime a few years back. In the anime, there are all sorts of characters with different special abilities from knight fantasy to mecha. Basically the plot and multiple characters are at times be kind of complicated. Nonetheless story is set in the distant future when Japan has been conquered by other countries and divided up into feudal territories. This is the only mecha aka "God of War" being produced as a figure among those few mecha appearance in the anime.

The Jizuri Suzaku (地摺朱雀 printed on the box) is one of the notably flamboyant God of War mecha and Naomasa's custom God of War which she uses for combat. It is considered to be the "pride and joy" of the Musashi Engineering Club where Naomasa works and lives assisted by her mechanica right arm. The feminine prominent boobs design of the mecha is one of the contributing factors why I settle for this figure. We don't have many female mecha toy in 17 cm, available in the market and all thanks to MegaHouse's Variable Action line, I'm able to get this oddity in 3D. Jizuri Suzaku's foot is of high heel and hawk-like-claw toes.

Other feminine attributes includes the mecha's long brown hair, pink/black skirt and golden ribbons. Jizuri Suzaku looks like having a head dress of tennis player hat and possessed an unusual melee weapon of giant wrench. What's more, the well articulated figure comes with four pairs of optional hand, extra willowing hair to replicate Jizuri Suzaku's moving scene and also posing base stand.

The Horizon Ariadust trading figure is not included, I bought it for photography. A cybernetic doll that works at the Blue Thunder bakery. She strongly resembles a girl killed ten years ago. As an automaton, P-01s is unable to portray emotions by using facial expressions and she demonstrates perfect logical thinking.

The overall mecha design for this action figure is awesome, as well as the color scheme, very girly, yet the dark grayish blue give an appropriate balance to the appearance... Never heard of the novel or the anime series, but the plot seems interesting... I don’t know if it’s just me, but the extra-size boobs-like-upper-armor kind of looks like missiles, maybe it’s because of the lasting impression that Afrodita (the feminine battle companion of Mazinger Z) left in my restless mind, LOLOLOLOLOL !!!... =D

This anime was pretty popular at one point of time and like other anime, they sometimes lost the hype as fast as it risen to popularity. Japanese anime sure move on very fast. This anime has a lot of fan service and even feminine mecha like this provided boob armour as fan service. Afrodita must be the great grand mother of all female robot. Lolz!

The subsequent time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I know it was my choice to read, however I really thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could possibly repair should you werent too busy in search of attention. slots for real money
