This is Meshi, here to serve up another heaping helping of figure reviews. I go through a box of tissues whenever I think about today's figures. To wipe away the tears, of course! Sayaka and Kyoko have such a complex and tragic relationship in the TV series. Seeing them get along so well in The Rebellion Story aroused an equal amount of sobs from me, albeit those of joy. Let's dig in!

BEACH QUEENS - Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie: Sayaka Miki Ver.2 1/10 Complete Figure [WAVE]

Sayaka is in an unusually chipper mood as she poses for our camera. Slender as she may be, she's built like a brick outhouse when compared to the rest of the puella.

Your eyes aren't playing tricks on you--her ribs really do stick out more than her boobs. When you think about it that way, the mere fact that she has any breasts at all is a miracle.

Any number of sexy situations come to mind when I look at those two fingers in her bikini bottom. Is she shaking out sand? Crabs? Checking her tanline? WHAT COULD IT BE?!?!

From the back we get a better view of her prickly bob cut. Be careful not to prick your finger on those spikes! If only Kyosuke had gotten a glimpse of her butt in a swimsuit Sayaka's cruel fate could have been averted.

Sayaka may have broke character with her role in The Rebellion Story , but it reinforced the personal image I had of her, much like this fun and fancy free figure.

The more things changed in The Rebellion Story, the more they remained the same. By my count Kyoko didn't have a single scene sans junk food and this figure continues that trend. Gotta love how she coordinates her swimsuit with her snacks!

Though her bust loses to Sayaka on volume, she certainly knows how to flaunt what she's got. The side boob curves on the same vector as her giant ponytail making for some nice composition, especially in contrast against that waistline!

Kyoko's exposed back is simultaneously feminine and childish, a juxtaposition that works every time!

Akiyuki Shinbo has nothing on our dramatic lighting and angles! The only thing missing is the fisheye camera pan following her dripping ice cream to the ground. We at AmiAmi love a nice blush and this figure doesn't disappoint!

Her extra expression is a toothy smile. I can barely pick out my socks in the morning--how do they expect me to decide which head to display?! Alas, the paradox of choice!

Place these two friends on your shelf and allow them to forever continue to live the blissful lie presented in The Rebellion Story. You owe them that much!
