Cu-poche - Henneko: Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi Posable Figure

Kotobukiya delivers the cuteness with the latest in their Cu-poche line of super-deformed posable figures. Say hello to Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi, the heroine from The Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat!

She comes loaded with accessories to recreate all the fun from the fast-paced rom-com. This is one figure begging to come out of the box and play!

This is Meshi, here to serve up a heaping helping of figure reviews.

The acclaimed HenNeko series stands above similar animated adaptations of light novels thanks to its adorable female cast. Tsukiko is a personal favorite of mine from a lineup of equally attractive cuties. Let’s see how her stony facade translates into a Cu-poche!

Cu-poche - Henneko: Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi Posable Figure

Let’s start with a default standing pose. Her trademark pigtail, hairpin, and blank expression make the transition to super deformed proportions with ease. The soles of her feet and the base are magnetic, allowing for a myriad of posing possibilities. Here she stands pigeon-toed without any problems.

Notice the hole on her back. This connects to an adjustable stand that we’ll go into detail later. For now, marvel at how well her proportions work when recast in a super-deformed scale!

It wouldn’t be a Cu-poche figure without the accessories! Here she’s caressing a meat bun, an indispensable prop for recreating classic scenes from the show. If this steamed snack reminds her of something precious from the past, her face certainly doesn't let on...

Her hands curled into kitten mittens live up to the title of the series in a pose that’s criminally cute. The aforementioned stand keeps her suspended safely in space. Her pounce reveals a flash of her little belly, as well as the sculptor’s love for the character.

 

Tsukiko may have a poker face but that doesn’t make her emotionless. Here we see her blushing, eyebrows set at a slightly different angle to highlight her embarrassment. This attention to detail really helps bring out the character when working with a limited range of expressions. The adjustable stand comes to the rescue again, easily supporting her with one foot off the ground.

  This empty-eyed expression fills my mind with ideas. Use it to recreate situations from the anime, or come up with your own devious setup and execution. You’re literally working with a blank slate—the possibilities are infinite!

Of course, no scene would be complete without the titular Stony Cat. Its simple design requires the delicate touch of an artisan to get just right. Feel free to appreciate the precision sculpt, but be careful not to make any careless wishes with it in the room...

Last but not least we have a major plot point, the demon mask! If you've seen the show I bet you’re already coming up with situations to recreate. Step into the director’s chair and replay those heartfelt scenes again and again and again with this lovable Tsukiko Cu-poche!
