In celebration of Spice & Wolf’s 10th Anniversary, and the completion of Ren Dictions Spice & Wolf Vol. 1, I bought a thingy! While not the expensive GSC Holy Grail, I have been meaning to buy this figure for quite some time. I feel this Kotobukiya 1/8 scale of Holo is the best realization of her original light novel form. Not as sharp and “mature” as the anime, and not as cutesy as the manga. Soft features and a hint of color to her cheeks give an alluring, gentle, yet lonely feel to a lovely figure.
Above all else, I am extremely glad to have been able to add her to my collection! The Rins were starting to itch for new faces on the block.
