Yui Kotegawa by Orchid Seed

Project details

Many times overshadowed by her bubbly female cast, Yui Kotegawa battles bottled up emotions that carry the affection for the male protagonist in Saki Hasemi’s harem comedy manga To Love-Ru.

While Alphamax went with the more popular girls from To Love-Ru in Golden Darkness and Momo Belia Deviluke, Orchid Seed’s decision fell on Yui Kotegawa out of the 15 something possible candidates. A curious but also welcome choice, next to Haruna Sairenji (featured on the left, Yui on the right) she was one of few memorable characters.

The figure allows for semi-castoff, one may display Yui holding either of two pairs of included footwear in some elegant white sandals or a tad more plain shoes in brown while in her school or bikini outfit.

    Can’t wait to get my Yui, she’s currently in transit. Yui is one of my favourites from To Love-Ru, although Mono has become really interesting since Darkness.

    Her school clothing looks a bit baggy and the visible joins are a little disappointing. But you’re definitely in for a treat once you break that outer shell. I really like the soft blue colouring of her bikini plus the way it’s gripping her figure. I also love the way her hair has a sense of motion about it, as if she’s quickly turning her head around.

    It’s been a long wait but she certainly looks worth it :D.

    Loving the mini pool you made. Having the ripples in the pool looks amazing too. The last image is probably my favourite – having Yui slightly offset from the centre of the frame and the sandals visible in the back.

    Wow, I had zero interest in this figure until I saw your review. She just doesn’t look very good in promo shots, but your pictures really redeem her. I love the set up you have for your photos, by the way. The white mini pool looks so chic.

    What a difference her cast off makes! She looks so bulky with her normal uniform on, but her bikini is lovely. As usual, it looks like Orchid Seed did a wonderful job on her body. Such generous proportions! The way she holds her sandals gives her a sense of delicacy that I really like. And her eyes are gorgeous too.

    I haven’t watched Darkness so far, but To Love Ru was always good ecchi comedy. Yui and Nana are actually my favorite characters

    Wohoo the pool setup looks amazing, how did you do that. Is it for sale ^^ ?

    This figure has a great looking body and the pose is totally nice with the sweep in her movement.

    What I really like is her backside in these pictures. Too bad that the face doesn’t live up to her body, I really expected more in that regard, well not the whole face is off there is just something with her mouth.
