Meshi here, ready to deliver another heaping helping of figure previews! Noragami borrows all of it's base material from Japanese folklore but spins a tale so original you can barely even call it an adaptation. Let's dig in and see what I mean!
Hiyori looks so great she's an out of body experience unto herself!
Upturned pink eyes means she's fawning at someone taller than her. Now who could that be...?
At any rate, don' forget to take that detail into consideration when you decide where to display her!
This fun and fancy free pose starts at her cocked hip and continues all the way to the tips of her hair and fingers. Don't you love a girl who emotes with her whole body? Er, astral body?
Ignoring the pink elephant/cord for a second, at first glance Hiyori comes off as a totally normal (albeit fashion-forward in pastel purple) schoolgirl. Then you realize that her silky pale skin and long legs are every bit as otherworldly as a gradated pink cord sticking out of her behind.
It's almost as hard to find a moe figure without a pleated skirt as it is sculpt a cliche with such energy and complexity that it feels this fresh! Combined with the vector of her beautifully toned hair the folds in her uniform make it easy for us to imagine her spirit's trajectory.
As with her personality, Hiyori's body is mature beyond her years.
Back lighting her really brings me back to the rooftop sunset scenes. However you chose to display her, this half human, half phantom is a 100% must for fans of the series!
