Asagi Igawa – Taimanin Asagi – Milestone

Igawa Asagi

Today we’ll take a look at Igawa Asagi, the popular PC Game heroine, well her origin is a popular Hentai Game, most of the time Asagi is actually not really heroic. There is also an anime adaption, with an avantgardistic (crazy) visual presentation. Most Hentai don’t bother to add a more elaborate background story, Taimanin Asagi does to a certain degree. Aside from her job as Anti Demon Ninja, Asagi leads a normal life with a mindful boyfriend and a lively little sister, until her presumed dead arch enemy returns to seek revenge. After she gets a captive she is forced to do certain things, I rather don’t want to discuss in detail.

Do you actually have any interest in watching hentai from time to time?

I sometimes do, I actually prefer the friendlier settings with nice animation quality and some comedy moments, although the darker titles can be more interesting, when they have a true storyline and not only a lame excuse of an intro for abusing cute anime women, but that’s quite rare. In order to be able to write a bit more about Igawa Asagi, I watched the three Taimanin Asagi OVA’s, not entirely something I enjoyed… at least it had a decent ending.

Putting the background aside, Asagi is a really popular character created by studio Lilith. There have been two figures of her, one 1/6 scaled from 2009 in a white and normal version and a 1/8 scaled one from 2014, which was released recently. She will be reviewed today.

Asagi Igawa was released at the end of October and manufactured by Milestone. Milestone is a wholesaler of figures and other anime goods, most of their own figures are collaborations.The figure is scaled 1/8 and has a height of around 17 cm, she was delivered in a space saving pretty box, inside is the shapely figure of Lady Asagi, a rock debris base and a fancy sword.

I was joyously expecting the release of this figure, although I have preordered her rather late.

There were several things I liked about her, like the purple suit or the facial expression, I love slanted eyes combined with an adventurous, confident smile. The promo pictures were actually excellent, compared to what we usually see from other companies, like Alphamax, their figures are really nice, but the promotional pictures somehow never show it that well.

Asagi is a shapely woman with a sturdy build, one part about her is quite prominent, her large breasts, I guess she is the most stacked girl in my collection so far. Her proportions appear not really suited for combat, but Asagi is a very skilled ninja, the character design is distinctive with accentuated curves where it matters in the ecchi industry and a sexy facial expression.

What I like about this or the other Igawa Asagi figure is, that they portray her as action heroine, even though she’s a character based on a rather hard hentai series, they show her with some dignity and pride. This figure of Asagi looks very cool with her dynamic appearance.

I really like Asagi’s combat suit, it’s shiny and with metallic flakes mixed into the silver and purple color, I could probably have polished her a bit before taking pictures. The skin tight dress follows her body nicely and accentuates her rich curves. The suits design has a dynamic feel, the purple is decorated with silver parts and also fishnet elements.

Her hair is painted quite dark with a green bluish shading, the flow is nice and shows convincing strands, the two finer strands of hair complete the detailed appearance. The low hanging fringe makes her more attractive since it gives her a mysterious, sexy expression.

I ‘m very happy about the figures face, it shows a sense of strong willed, confident, maybe there is also a little arrogance mixed into the figures expression. She is someone you would call a tough women, but Asagi can also look very cute. The facial details look very good, also when considering that her head is on the smaller end of the 1/8 scale. Her face is very expressive and pretty, it shows green, slanted eyes, her lips also has some light lip gloss.

The figure has a nice looking sword with a straight blade, when putting it in her hand you can make it face backwards or forward.

The sculptor captured Igawa Asagi character nicely, but took some liberty with the shape of her boobs and maybe the size, in the anime adaption they appeared somewhat smaller.

No, I should rather say less big. A tear drop like shape would have been preferable, but I knew it before I preordered this figure so I should not complain. Actually it looks not too bad when you are into women with bigger boobs. On the other hand her proportions are actually balanced, Asagi has very wide hips, a voluptuous butt and strong thighs, so she won’t fall over.

Final Words

I like this figure, she is purple, fierce and sexy ^^ I love the detailed suit, that shines like crazy and adds a nice contrast to her bare skin. The figure also has a stylish, elaborate looking base.

As 1/8 scaled figure Igawa Asagi looks very appealing and convincing, the dynamic, also expressive pose make her look great on my desk and the face is actually very well done.Still I would have definitely liked her at a bigger scale, too.

On a technical level Milestone left a positive impression with solid craftsmanship and good choice of materials, there are a few things that could be improved, like a few very  minor over painting issues. The sculptor did a good job in reproducing the characters distinctive attributes, the curves are nice and everything is very detailed, like her finely sculpted fingers.

    Yeah, her series wasn’t really for me. Still, she’s a beauty worth having and I just placed an order for her. I agree that her slanted, narrow eyes are fantastic and sexy. Love the photos. Really sold me on the figure.

    • wieselhead

      Haha, I understand that just too good ;D
      The character design is still very attractive and it’s nice they made a figure of her that captures her appealing points.
      Thank you very much, hearing that really makes me happy =)

    Big hentai fan here, I have the other figure and love it. Can’t wait to get this one, it looks like it turned out better than I expected!

    I think you should have gone into greater detail about her character biography! Specifically, what she does and what gets done to her. Asagi is a girl who knows how to have a good time. She looks great – surprisingly so, since I was kinda expecting this figure to be mediocre, which is why I didn’t order it. I’m particularly surprised that her face is quite pretty; I didn’t think it would turn out this nicely. The older Lilith figure had a different, more static pose that I kinda prefer, but the face looked kinda strange. 17 cm height sounds a little small-ish but I guess she’s crouching a little bit so that might not be too big a deal; maybe I should look around and see if I want to order her.

    • wieselhead

      Lol, I couldn’t do that.
      Well, most of the things were animated so fast I started to feel dizzy. I only liked the monster scene a lot
      too bad that they rarely are consistent about sizes in hentai, that thing would never had fit into her mouth XD
      They should have just expanded the previous scene.

      Some years ago I often gave unknown or infamous companies a chance, which changed recently.
      But, I really liked how Milestone portrayed her, they also offered highres pictures online.
      They did a great job on the face mouth and eyes give her the hot, lethal lady effect ^^.
      The face of the other figure reminds me more of a witch, still the figure is somewhat cool.

      The Milestone figure is on the small side, at least her head is, but it isn’t dramatic.
      Good luck with finding one. thx for the comment.

    I wouldnt mind getting a beating from her…
    lol sexy i have to say! and i love the green eyes it complements very well with the purple uniform, although i have to mention that its kinda too tight on her haha
    seriously you can even see her nipple!

    nice figure but not to the standards of the good companies such as ALTER and GSC such as in the paint job.

    • wieselhead

      She also has a kind side ^^

      Yeah her green narrow eyes are damn attractive , these make her more expressive.
      It has to be tight for whatever reason, maybe she’s a narcistic character XD
      I only think that she could look a little more petite actually.

      It’s no gigantic quality gap and Asagi has no really bad parts, but the companies you’ve mentioned are on a different level.
      Actually Max Factory is rather outstanding in terms of quality at the moment ^^

    A female ninja,well I believe like many kunoichi in Japanese entertainment, the game and ova will be full of rape and maybe beastiality with sort of monsters~ XD
    This figure looks really nice I like the dark purple, nice action pose, maybe an optional head with her wearing mask would be nice (if she ever wear one).
    The only thing I am not fond of it that they make her showing erect nipples get through the suit maybe they make up for it not being castoffable,or probably that’s how it looks in the game during intercourse.
    on side note she seems to be more well endowed than how she looks in the OVA or Game LOL just my thought, anyway I search some screenshots of the game and see a pregnant version of her hmm I really do want to see a pregnant Scaled figure being made @_@

    • wieselhead

      It consist of some rather abusing things you should not do to a woman and rather extreme penetrations (;ꏿ︿ꏿ), maybe that was hot *lol*
      but it’s not bloody and not as disturbing as other shows of this kind involving demons.
      She could have a piece for covering her mouth, which is part of her ninja equipment.
      I like puffy nipples, actually her rosebuds are always present, maybe they are somehow too pointy here.
      Yeah I guess you are right, if her head would be bigger it would probably look different.

      Oh that is something new, I guess I’ve never seen such a figure XD

      • Aya

        Hardcore sex fantasy is what I always like from Hentai thing , gangbang,torture,bondage and extreme stuff for guilty pleasure well at least it’s in 2D ahaha ^^ .
        Covering mouth that’s pretty neat for Ninja :D, I see well that’s make this figure quite accurate then 😀 .
        I did remember see one a figure by Gigapulse about the blonde princess(jeane ?) that raped by demon/oni, she got pregnant variation (and giving birth variation i think) @_@ quite disturbing thought… what have been seen can’t be unseen unfortunately ahahaha ^^

        • wieselhead

          Fantasy hentai is also my favorite, I can accept mean demons more than mean humans, in fantasy stuff you can be more creative, I enjoy a few things more extreme things but I’m rather picky. I try to stay away from too extreme titles, it can be really upsetting for me, I would feel bad for a number of days ;D I hate these abusive kinds of hentai when they have a real world setting, it’s just too cruel and makes me angry.

          Actually yes haha

          Oh this one, I remember the monstrosity version without limbs. Good I’ve never seen the giving birth version *lol*
