Moeyo's Best of V-Zone 2012

The Oscars have Best Picture, the Nobel Foundation has its Peace Prize, and anime figure otaku have Moeyo's Best of V-Zone 2012, published earlier today.  Without further ado, the list:

1)  Magical Princess Nanako sculpted by oba at Hobby Round 7

2)  Sakuya: Crimson Mode from Shining Blade 1/6 scale by Kotobukiya

3)  Manaka Komaki Physical Education (Pool) Version from To Heart 2 1/6 scale by Beat

5)  Toko Kurosawa original by Brilliant Cut 1/4 scale by Daiki Kougyo

6)  Konimo Yuzuhara Girigiri Bikini on the Penguin version from To Heart 2 DX Plus 1/8 scale by Chara-Ani

7)  Mai Ichijo from Mai Favorite 1/7 scale by Orchid Seed

8)  Kanu from Queen's Gate 1/8 scale by Hobby Japan

9)  Sakuya from Shining Blade by Yamato

There was certainly no shortage of worthy candidates this year, but I can't say I agree with some of the pieces on this list--the Toko Kurosawa one strikes me as kind of a mess, frankly--and I would have placed the Konomi Yuzuhara piece much higher on the ol' banzuke, but here's to a new year of cheap thrills and PVC fumes!
