Overall: A dashing score of 9.75

Paint Job – 10
Beautiful paint job, from her black tights to her blue outfit this figurine boasts with a perfect paint job.

Sculpting – 10
This sculptor of the figurine Hiroshi did an admirable job when he painted her. Her pose is rather sexy and one can easily forget that this beautiful blonde is a weapon. Well done, Hiroshi-sama!

Design – 9
Whoever designed the Atago figurine really took the anime in consideration. You feel the character with your eyes (not in a bad way), she looks as if she is in kawaii mode.

Display Worth – 10
Definitely one for the men. She will make a fine addition to any display.

Verdict

Agato is speaking to us, begging: “Please admiral, take me home. I will protect your collection.” Let us be honest this figurine is as perfect as you can get and a beautiful representation of the anime character. In our humble opinion, it is a must have for any serious collector.
