I don’t know if the anime Magipoka (or Magical Pokan, or Renkin 3-kyu Magical? Pokan) had any success, but I loved it. Pachira the vampire and Liru the werewolf are my favorite characters, and I guess it is because of their respective seiyuu : Aya Hirano and Hitomi Nabatame, discovered in previous show like Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu or School Rumble.
Well, when Max Factory released the Uma figurine (the witch from Magipoka), I wasn’t that enthusiastic, since I didn’t think at that time there will be an other Magipoka figure. But!
Pachira appeard in Max Factory planning.
And now I am so happy to have both of them standing in my collection.
This figurine is just perfect. Sure I am fond of it, but honestly, from the bottom of her gothic boots to the top of her “neko-ribbon”, she is exactly the same as in the anime. All details have been respected, and that is the way I like figurines.
One thing I also like in (anime) girls is pigtails (or twintails, don’t know exactly how it’s called in english). Pachira’s are very long, and end with a funny sharp form. That is what makes Pachira charming, added to her great clothes.
Nowadays, a figurine must have removable clothes or some switchable stuff. Well, Pachira does have something like that, called “polo system” by Max Factory folks. In other words, her clothes can be taken off. That is funny, of course, but she is much more sexier when she is full-dressed.
Shingo from Heisei Democracy did a nice review of this Pachira figurine, for those who missed it.
A last shot with her witch friend Uma from Magipoka. They definitly look great together in a collection. I hope Liru and Aiko will follow.
