Destructive personalities is a small fascination of mine and one character living up to such a trait is Yozora Mikazuki from Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai in where Yozora is often seen arguing with another strong-willed female in Sena Kashiwazaki. Because of the character’s solitary nature she’s initially seen as keeping to herself while talking to an imaginary friend.
Yozora is a 1/7 scale that measures roughly 22 cm (8.7 in) tall. The pose is taken from the cover of the first Japanese light novel which was published back in 2009.
Good Smile Company have simplified the figure by skipping the messy hair and an almost sinister gaze presented by the source material. The hints of uneasiness and annoyance are still intact, backed up by crossed arms and twisting legs to heighten the mood.
Depending on how you choose to display or look at the figure you’ll be seeing two intertwining expressions, one being of a bitter and angry nature and the other being a bit more subtle showing traces of gloom.
Good Smile have done a good job with Yozora and my only complaint would be that the wrinkled skirt looks a bit bulky rather than fluid as the fabric turns. A non-figure related blunder is how Good Smile for unknown reasons printed “Mikaduki” on the box, a somewhat sloppy mistake in production.
