Yui Yuigahama and Yukino Yukinoshita posing for a camera in a classroom.
Yui and Yukino from the series Oregairu arrived one after another, with Yui showing up first and had to wait a good two months before Yukino made her arrival. Blame the usual time of the year for the bit of a delay, still glad to have them both regardless.
Both these beauties are 1/8 scale produced by Kotobukiya. Packaging is as expected from them, somewhat flimsy but did the job to showcase both of them.
First up is Yui on her own, complete with the chair for this rather lively pose.
There is definitely something about her smile.
Oh yeah there's her pet dog Sablé, I finally remembered to keep her companion in focus for this one.
Next up is Yukino with her Pan-san. Her ice queen persona is quite apparently displayed here.
She seems interested in the piano?
Or whatever's out the window?
Having multiple figures from different boxes sharing the same stand is a rather uncommon feature, so with the duo posed together like so is quite a treat. It's worth pointing out that Yukino can pretty much be placed anywhere as long as she has her chair as that's how she's balanced.
Closer look at both of them at the same time. Yui as if looking more pleased than Yukino, while Yukino just stares on intently. As usual, slight imperfections with the hair up close, but not too big of a deal as expected from Kotobukiya. I do wish the details on Yukino's lips are more defined, much like Yui.
Now for their companions (may read that as sidekicks). I have to say Pan-san with his devious glare wins the appeal for me. Do note that the chairs from the two sets actually do have a very minute height difference, the taller one to allow Yui to do that chair balancing act when Yukino is not around with her chair to have a seat on.

Ditto for Yukino. Bye for now!
