Tsukimiya ~uguu~ Ayu
Among Kanon main female characters, Ayu Tsukimiya is maybe the most outstanding girl thanks to her famous catch phrase うぐう (uguu). If you don’t understand what I’m talking about, then go watch Kanon and/or grab the special uguu voice cd at MoeMoeRabu and just listen to Yui Horie’s amazing performance. But for now, stay with me to enjoy one of Max Factory latest figure, representing of course this cute little Ayu-chan.
All is there : winged backpack, red headband, mittens, boots and old-school socks… and her face expression really looks like she is actually saying that special “uguu” of hers.
The figurine is sculpted by Kuroda Masanori. Remember? I already talked about his talents few days ago when presenting Alicia Florence figure. So I had actually high expectations for Ayu, which are all confirmed!
The only thing missing is taiyaki. Damn, talking of it make me want to eat one now…
The two arms are removable, so as the head and her hood, which comes in two different settings : one with black bag-straps, that may be used with the winged backpack, and one without. All fit well together, and joints are not very visible.
Ayu also comes with a pair of angel wings, sculpted in a semi-transparent plastic. I won’t explain why those wings are provided, not to spoil those who didn’t watch Kanon yet. Though, hey are very well done, and I guess that if Max Factory does the same great work for Shana figure’s hair coming next month, that will be just awesome.
But handle them with care… or you can be hurt. Those wing’s edges are damn sharp!
When the wings are set, it is better to use the hood that doesn’t have the bag-straps. Well, the most observant will notice that I still used the first hood… only ’cause I forgot the other one at home hehe. That was for the little story.

And a last picture taken with while clouds arrived. Light was much more neutral.
I was kindda of disapointed by Kotobukiya’s Kanon figures, so it was really exciting to see that Max Factory would launch into Kanon as well. And for this first figure, I am very satisfied. Each time I look at Ayu, I can hear one of her 86 different uguu~
So, see you in March for more Kanon figure with Sawatari ~auu~ Makoto ^^
