Review: Nendoroid Yuyuko Saigyouji

  A few moon cycles ago, I ordered a figure from Big In Japan, which led me into a dark realm called Touhou. This figure happened to be Nendoroid Yuyuko Saigyouji, who arrived a few weeks ago.

 Due to French family being over, going to the cabin, and watching a whole Let's Play for Majora's Mask, I was unable to do the review until now. So, before I start a few things to add:

- Weekly Lick will start again really soon (I'm guessing in a few weeks);
- A bunch of preorders may be made in the next few days.

Anyway, here is the review:

Yuyuko comes with:

- 6 shoulder parts
- 4 arms
- 3 faces
- 1 open and 1 closed fan
- A bunch of hands
- Replaceable hat
- 4 butterflies
- 2 glow-in-the-dark ghosts

Since her dress is close to touching the ground, it's somewhat useless to have extra legs.
As well, the stand is amazing!
For accessories, Yuyuko gets 10/10.

Now on to shipping. Yuyuko arrived in excellent condition in a bow with sharp edges C: (Bubble wrap works!)
Shipping gets 10/10.

When it comes to posability, Yuyuko's shoulders work miracles. You can make millions of poses because of them, and because of that, posability gets 10/10.

Next is paint. The nice pastel colours really go great with Nendoroids. I have yet to find a mistake or smudges. Paint gets 10/10.

Next is sculpt. The hat's detail is amazing, it's stunning! I sometimes just pick it up off her head and admire it for a few minutes. The flow of her kimono was also done greatly. Sculpt gets 10/10.

Next is playability. Sadly, since she doesn't have any real weapons, Yuyuko might become one of those "boring" figures after a while, where I cannot find a pose to put her in, but for now, I love all of the poses. The fact that you can use other faces as well to make certain hungry or HOLY-CRAP-FOOD! poses increases her playability. Playability gets 10/10.

Amazing Touhou scene (a version of Stage 6 of PCB).

Ghost and butterflies having fun.

 In conclusion, this is the best figure I have bought yet, beating Myon-chan by 0.2 points. Nendoroid Yuyuko Saigyouji gets a perfect 100%.

I highly recommend this figure to those who are fans of the Touhou series and to those who love amazing Nendoroids. I bought this figure BEFORE I was a fan of Touhou. How did that happen?


  1. Nice! Oh yeah what items have you pre-ordered?

  2. I somehow managed to get her along with Youmu. They aren't bootlegs so that's good. I was so happy when I got them considering they are pretty much sold out everywhere now. :D
