Kaname Madoka – Mahou Shoujo Madoka ☆ Magica Gaiden

Today I will show you the figure of Kaname Madoka – Mahou Shoujo Madoka ☆ Magica Gaiden made by Stronger and distributed by Aniplex, you could have bought this figure bundled with Tamaki Iroha, but I just wanted Madoka.

Ah Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica, the surprise hit and little disturbing anime about magical girl Madoka and her friends with mental issues from 2011. The latest figure I received was Miki Sayaka from GSC in 2012.

Obviously, her face is damn cute. Without the hatching the eye design from the game is different than from the anime. The difference is not really obvious, anyway the big sparkly eyes make the figure appear quite adorable and lively.

This figure is based on the side story Mahou Shoujo Madoka ☆ Magica Gaiden, a smartphone RPG, an anime adaptation of that will follow in January, 2020.

I admit that the Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica Movie 3: Hangyaku no Monogatari left me in despair and confusion. But when I saw this cute adaptation of the Kaname Madoka character I didn’t have to think twice, about ordering.

Kaname Madoka was released in August 2019, she has been sculpted by Miyajima Katsuyoshi. She is scaled 1/8 and measures adorable 20 cm. Somehow I expected to be a little bigger, but that is ok.

I think that figure is beautiful and sweet no matter from where you look, inside the box you will find the figure, a base, a bow and an exchangeable left hand for displaying the figure without bow.

There we have Madoka with her usual hairstyle, the pigtails decorated with big dark pink colored ribbons, the different shade of pink at the tips creates more depth and makes the magical girl look quite fashionable.

Her outfit is as girly as a magical girl outfit can be , without sounding sarcastic it feels like a mix of wedding cake with lots of frills and pink. She wears a red collar around her neck. I really like the corsage with short puffy sleeves, the yellow and pink colors are quite charming as well as the frilly seam lines and the tiny pink buttons.

Bare skin is shown at her arms, the upper chest and at her back. At the backside is a heart shaped cutout. Gosh everything is just so cute. The small figure actually has beautiful knees highlighted by the frilly socks. the shoes are very red and very glossy. The contrast to the matte colors is quite nice.

The most obvious part of her outfit is the voluminous skirt, the pink top layer looks very appealing with the red rim and the tiny pattern at the tips. She wears white gloves, their design again seems to be based on flower petals.

As already mentioned she has a hand for holding her bow and a different hand for the option to display her without it. With the leafs and rose on top, the bow looks quite a lot like a natural stick, except for the gems attached to it, a nice looking detail is the string at the bow. Madoka’s right hands index finger indicates that she could stretch the bow string, but I don’t want to break something.

Final Words

Kaname Madoka – Mahou Shoujo Madoka ☆ Magica Gaiden from Stronger is a wonderful figure where the cuteness doesn’t stop. Her cute face is extremely adorable and the outfit is stunning with all details and overall design. the arched back is a bit extreme, but aside from that the figure is flawless in regards of colors and sculpting quality, looking at this enchanting figure makes me happy.

    I love how you exposed this statue – with candy canes, macarons and sugar cubes (I think? or are the expanded corn puffs?). They match very well together. I can’t really tell the difference between this game version and the version from the anime. I don’t see anything about the eyes.

    I also bought this, it should arrive here at the end of october. I didn’t have any Madoka Magica products so I bought this one, and also one of the shy Sana Futaba with a cool shield. If they ever make one of Naofumi Iwatani from Rising of the Shield Hero, I might get him as well, to place them together.

    Regarding magical girls, I also have more in my collection. I’m also expecting this one from the series Yuki Yuna is a Hero. I love that series, and this specific character

    I’d also like to find one with Homura. I saw some on Amazon and Ebay, but I’ll think about it some more.

      Thank you, I tried to put up a sweet stage and it turned out literally. The sugar cubes are actually just Styrofoam, since I had no mini marshmallows left.
      I see, maybe the difference is not very obvious, here you see the small difference ^^.
      Nearly had ordered the figure of Sana Futaba but other things came up. It’s quite adorable with the shield and the overall design with the cute colors.
      I also like Togo san a lot, I should have bought the figure from ALTER
      After watching the Mahou Shoujo Madoka I have no place in my heart for Homura left XD

        I have a question about this figure we both have. I checked and mine is made of plastic. But are you sure yours isn’t actually made of cake? You should try cutting it with a knife.
        Sorry, I couldn’t resist…

    Sorry to return here with another comment (but I’m not sorry to see this beautiful article again), but I thought I’d post proper links that won’t disappear (also Heo doesn’t have the names of figures in the url, unlike that other site I linked, that has names, so people can still search for those figures even if the links won’t work in the future).

    I just got the Mimori Togo one a few days ago (in the midst of Corona-chan’s “Reign of Terror” – that’s a reference to a famous western video game btw).

    Am I imagining things, or did you add more photos in this article?
    Also, Homura is love, Homura is life. 😛

      no prob and thx ^^
      I could open the links before though. Ah it’s Togo san it looks nice. I always wanted this but it became super expensive.
      I don’t think I edited more pictures in the post, maybe a few didn’t load on your previous visit.
      You know, I’m really bewitched by the Magia Record anime, it’s not as disturbing like the other Madoka title and the girls are adorable.
      In case the anime doesn’t end in a traumatic way I would like to get Futaba Sana and Mitsuki Felicia
      Homura is plain evil…at least in the last movie XD
