With the popularity of the Japanese anime series My Hero Academia, Japanese toy company Kotobukiya has launched a 1/8 scale figure from one of the main female characters in the My Hero Academia, Ochaco Uraraka! The dynamic posture is full of youthful joy. let’s take a look!
My Hero Academia has been serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump since 2014, and the sixth season of the animation is expected to be broadcast in the fall of 2022.
Uraraka attends Class 1-A of U.A. High School along with other protagonists such as Izuku Midoriya, Katsuki Bakugo, etc. Because Uraraka’s family runs a construction company, its performance is dismal, so the source of becoming a hero is to make a lot of money, so that the parents can live a relatively easy life. Uraraka is a cheerful and kind-hearted soft girl, kind of an airhead at times, and often cares and helps others. And her empathy and kindness made her a bosom friend of Izuku Midoriya.
This Urarak figure belongs to the ArtFX J series of Kotobukiya, and it is Ver. 2 with a brand new look, which is also 1/8 scale, and the total height is about 26.8cm, almost 10.55 inches.
Uraraka’s ability is Quirk of Zero Gravity. This figure reproduces the pose of Uraraka wearing a battle suit and using Zero Gravity to levitate herself.
This battle suit is a futuristic style of hero costume, specially designed by the Help Us Company according to Uraraka’s request, but because Uraraka did not write the requirements clearly, it was made into a tights style, which Uraraka thinks is very shy to wear.
The portrayal of the overall battle suit is accurate, and the color matching is very comfortable.
The features of the overall costume are very obvious. The whole suit is skin-tight black and decorated with pink. The middle of the torso and the limbs have a pale pink design.
Two black circles on the chest and a black rectangle below the waist.
The equipments of this suit are also very powerful. The cute pink rabbit helmet can reduce the pressure on the inner ear and balance the body posture.
A neck ring that stimulates pressure points in the neck and relieves headaches.
The 2 bracelets can stimulate the acupoints near the wrist that can suppress nausea and relax the mind.
Uraraka’s feet also have nice details. She wears high-tech boots, envisioning the design of landing from elevation. The front sole is made of shock-absorbing cushioning material, and the inner heel has strong springs that can also be used to absorb shocks.
The whole head sculpt also depicts Uraraka very cutely.
Brown hair with short bangs on the forehead and inward curving at the ends. Her eyes are big and round, and her cheeks are always flushed.
The whole expression is full of confident expression, very youthful.
The entire base depicts a scene of stone and iron floating with Uraraka in a state of Zero Gravity.
It can be seen that the stones and iron blocks have a good coating, and there are real textures on them.
To be honest, this My Hero Academia Uraraka figure is pretty good overall, and Uraraka’s lovely jumping posture in the air is well reproduced.
I think this is an indispensable piece for the fans of My Hero Academia, so add it to your collection now.
