Retro Toy Week: Love Hina's Mitsune Kanno!

I have never seen Love Hina, and anything I say about said anime would be pure speculation. It's a harem show, right? Doofus guy, inexplicably surrounded by hot girls, struggles to get with the one true love out of the lot, whom you could probably pick out from episode one? Just a guess.

Regardless, I love this figure, but not for the reason you think. Well, OK, it's a cute anime girl who looks like she just got up and put on your shirt, but apparently she's also a bit of a lush. Mitsune came with beer, bottles and cans. Lots of beer. The little metal cans could be anything: energy drink, coffee, ramen, I don't know, but I'm going to take a wild guess that it's beer too. She also has a chair, a speaker...and a piece that looks like shelving or something? Well, I didn't find that, so leave it.

Mitsune's articulated at the hips, thighs, shoulders, elbows, knees, neck and somewhere in the midsection. Not super-poseable then, but not bad, and nothing interferes with the sculpt. She may have been purchased for her accessories, but she's a fun figure to boot. (Mitsune made a brief appearance here, back in our Prisoner spoof last year.) That said, good luck finding her: there's a couple statues and swimsuit mini-figures or whatever, but the proper action figure, with accessories, from C-Works; could be a tough one.

This is so cute! This could be one of the coolest Love Hina collectibles ever! This manga is really awesome and funny. You'll never find boredom when reading or watching the series.
