Memory of the Rainbow

“A girl finds a rainbow colored shell on the beach the same morning that she meets a boy there. The boy has no memories, so the girl decides to take him in. Before long, the two fell in love with each other.

The boy is a soldier escaping from a battlefield world of ruins. But because of a transfer error, he lost his memory. The rainbow shell is the storage of his memories. The boy will return to his own world with his companions, but if he returns there now, his memories of this current world (with the girl) will disappear. He decides to put his memories into the rainbow shell, entrust the shell to the girl, and return to the battlefield.

The boy who had gone back to the battlefield returns to the girl’s world after the fighting is over. However, many tens of years have passed in this world. He finds the rainbow shell, inside of which contains his memories with the girl. But when he puts it up to his ear, he finds the shell broken – he can’t hear anything” ~ Memory of the Rainbow by Kaminagi Ryoko.

I never really plan to get this Ryoko figure by Alter probably cause she looks kinda simple and didn’t really catch my eyes. In the end I still got her more on impulse than anything when I saw her still available for pre-order at HLJ and I am glad I did. Though there’s nothing really exceptional about her, simple clothes, simple pose, but she’s just so well made. Her expression also really reflect her cheerful personality in the anime. I guess she’s the type of figure that is easy on the eye and the more you look at her the more you like her.

Such cute face and nice smile ^^. Her hair is a simple affair though, not much detail on it and kinda spiky.

A nice day to walk in the park. I wish I have the sky background that shino and aka_ugly used sometimes.

Good thing she’s not from the same school with Haruhi otherwise Haruhi’s face will probably be in the pic now XD.

A very good figure release by Alter and the sculptor Nishimura Naoki, very clean sculpt and painting. Only thing is she’s quite pricey for a figure of this size but then she’s the only figure from Zegapain that was ever release so there aren’t any alternative unless I want to get the Altair kit from Bandai ^^ which I heard it’s quite nice from shino. If only he would quickly finish building the kit and snap some shots of it XD.
