It’s been roughly one year since Native showed off the artwork for one of their ongoing projects during Wonder Festival, at the time simply labeled as an original character, later materialized into “Gamer Girl” who’s not exactly your typical childhood friend.
Illustrator Aruchu Kizuki of Udon-Ya has managed to create something seldom seen in combining elegance and smoldering heat while still exposing an unspeakable amount of skin.
The work done by the artist has gained enough attention from figure makers resulting in two figures this year (excluding Gamer Girl; Yuki from Orchid Seed (reviewed on Tentacle Armada)) and at least one more (an original character from SkyTube) next year.
The figure comes with accessories shown in the artwork as well as a few bonus items offering various display options. With the original illustration being heavily cropped one can still make out that the character is sitting down on something in which Native saw an opportunity to add supporting furniture. While not shown here the drawers are fully functional and can be ejected or fully removed.
The full accessory list includes headphones, glasses, two portable gaming devices attachable to the headset cord, a pair of highly reflective high heels, a lollipop, a mirror and most importantly, removable underwear.
One minor letdown is that you can’t place the glasses in the same position seen in the illustration. It’s also obvious to why the addition of the lollipop is there, however I think it goes against the concept behind a great illustration.
Personally, Gamer Girl marks the end of (at least for now) a long line of fantastic figures from Native with this rendition being the crown jewel of the bunch. The company have outdone themselves this time around and I doubt I’ll see an equally impressive figure offering similar features for a long time to come.
