Kurumu Kurono by Orchid Seed

Project details

Orchid Seed’s recently released Kurumu Kurono, a sexually frustrated succubi from the series Rosario + Vampire, is up for interpretation. Kurumu is based off this artwork and the most striking difference is that Orchid Seed have stripped the almost childish facial expression and given the figure a more mature look.

The figure, scaled 1/7, stands 24,5cm / 9.56in tall on a white round base covered with stars. Colors, while limited, do provide a great contrast between the bovine guise and the gold and purple in Kurumu’s blue hair. Going south reveals a pair of green underwear and at the bottom of the those legs, shoes in midnight blue.

The figure allows for semi-castoff, allowing you to expose the breasts. One negative aspect of the undressing part would be the shoulder straps as they simple would not fit without excessive force, at least on my figure, and they easily came undone with minimal contact.

Aside from the shoulder strap dilemma Orchid Seed have managed to deliver a solid, sexy figure.

    Goddamit. I’ve been eyeing Kurumu since she was announced, but I didn’t get on the pre-order train. I’ll have to go into the murky waters of the secondary market but she’s a must-have. Thanks for the lovely pictures–they’ve convinced me that she’s a fine investment.

    Maybe I have a maid fetish, haha she’s also my second figure in this attire + a Mugi Waitress figure. I ordered Kurumu as well, cool that you already received her, your picture increased the pleasant anticipation I already had for her. I was so happy as her grey prototype was painted, it felt like ages until the final product was there.

    I love her look, the meaty thighs, the full bosom and oh yeah the back of this figure is great, such super sexy scapulae, I really like that :D
    I would have been satisfied with the face expression of the illustration, but the slightly altered one the figure shows is also great, it looks very well done.

    Mhh, I actually had the impression that the whole top would have been castoffable, well must have been my imagination XD

    Your props rocked again, these curtains and the small partition are really nice ^^

    A fantastic review of Kurumu, I love the set you built and how your review flows like a story board.

    I’m glad Orchid Seed tweaked her face slightly for a more mature look, it feels much more appropriate. Kurumu was my favourite from the lackluster Rosario + Vampire and I was tempted myself to pick her up at one point.

    I love the detailing of her back and shoulders. Does her skin have a red hue compared to other figures you have? Her long sleeved gloves look really nice too, yum. I think she looks best fully clothed, or at least with her skirt still intact. The green pants are nice, but kind of clash with the remaining black of her top that can’t be removed.
