Some weeks ago, a friendly mfc user sold me his Kirari – Dekacchu – Lovely Princess version. In summer 2013 Phat Company released this unusual looking figure. She measures 20 cm in height and is actually quite big.
Dekacchu is a lineup of super deformed characters manufacturered by Phat Company, the Kirari version I got is the Limited Exclusive version. It is an adaption of the official card from the iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls game. Yagumo Kengou turned it into something deformed and chibified, the final Dekacchu figure was sculpted by Kaiya Hajime.
Moroboshi Kirari is based on iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls, the figure was released before the anime adaption aired.
I actually don’t care much about the ongoing idol hype and the expensive merchandise, I mainly find it cruel that the voice actresses are “forced” to dance like their anime characters, only to give fans the total idol experience climax. Anyway some animes with this setting can be quite nice, the lively Love Live! Sunshine!! Season 2 as example.
Fortunately a friend convinced me to watch iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls in the end, I hesitated quite a bit, all the things like being fake and the idols not writing their own songs, you know. To my surprise Cinderella Girls was a nicely directed anime about girls that try to make their personal dream come true. Partially it also became quite dark themed.
While watching Cinderella Girls I met the wonderful Kirari, I instanly fell in love with her. She is a beautiful tall girl with a great and cheerful personality, she loves cute things and girls. Kirari is always cheerful and friendly. At the beginning she was thinking that the she could be too tall for being a cute idol, soon she could accept her being taller than the other idols though.
The always positive girl makes her own outfits, they have the tendency of looking overwhelimgly cute and girly with lots of details attached, I admit that I like them, combined with her attractive womanly body these outfits look really great on her. Her caring attitude towards other idols make the 17 year old girl appear like the big sister type.
The figure has nice smooth, orange helmet hair with some indicated curls, she also has small arms and legs.
The cards outfit was adapted faithfully, it’s a dream of pastel color tones, mainly green, blue, yellow and pink, Kirari looks lovely in these clothes. The manufacturers quality looks very impressive on this figure, despite the deformed proportions, the paintjob and the details have been carefully applied. Also the proud bosom of Kirari was adapted.
I really like this set of figures, their big size is a nice change of pace and even for that they are not too pricey. Just like you said no matter where you place them they do have a strong presence. I wonder if it is too late for the Cinderella Girls train to get more of them? Hopefully the line will continue at least with the Million Live girls in the future.
They leave a stronger impression than 10 cm Nendoroids of course (＾▽＾)
I think they could continue with Dekacchu, even with characters aside from Im@s universe.
Although they take as much space as a larger scale figure, it’s an interesting size.
They usually tend make such figure as small as possible XD but this time it’s big , what it feel own her as big as possible? , size won’t affect photos of course
Yeah, to make people buy more, they are small and tiny.
I think with the big size the figure doesn’t look like fragile plastic merchandise, it has good quality and is heavy.
In photos Kirari looks not so big ^^
