Rosario + Vampire's Kurumu is Valentine-perfect


For a lusty succubus from a harem anime, Kurono Kurumu has made it impressively high onto my list of favorite anime characters. I don't know if it's because of the fact that she's under constant pressure from her mother to be a good little succubus and turn the entire student body of Youkai Academy into her love slaves (my Mom drove me nuts with that in high school too), or her tremendous enthusiasm for the school newspaper club, but I feel like we have a lot in common. I didn't run around in a french maid outfit to promote my school newspaper, but then again, I'm not as committed to journalism as Kurumu is.

Most of the figures available of her thus far have been kind of meh. Either they have her wearing some lame, boring-ass outfit that shows off her boobs and not much else, or she's just in her Youkai uniform without her fetching bat wings and tail. That's why it's so great to see Resinya!'s new PVC show up for pre-order, courtesy of sculptor Zenko; Sure, she looks sexy and all, but they managed to capture the combination of playfulness and earnestness that makes the character so likable. If you'd like to see this lovely lass from every possible angle, you can scoot on over to Tomopop and do just that.

The version shown above is actually the limited version; the primary release has Kurumu in a more traditional black french maid outfit. To tell you the truth, despite showing off the white-dress version in the header, I actually think the more widely available figure is the superior one in this case. Unfortunately, Kurumu is going to set you back over a hundred bucks either way, but let me put it this way: If you're like me and love this character, and have ever considered getting a PVC of her, this is the one you want to get- Rosario+Vampire doesn't see a tremendous amount of PVCs, and I highly doubt we'll see a better sculpt of her anytime soon.

Besides, have you ever seen a PVC more befitting of Valentine's Day? Well, the figure won't arrive until late June, which kind of messes up my thematic presentation here, but hey- you'll need love in the summer too, won't you? You might want to prepare for that.

Hi, I'm a former newspaper journalist who got tired of having a front row seat to the death of print. There probably could be some interesting story there about a disenchanted reporter moving on ... more + disclosures
