Let’s start out by looking at his box packaging! It is a nicely printed blue box with ruler measurements on the border and has the Bakuman’s logo stamped right in the bottom centre of the front! Nice!
I am no expert with Japanese as I’ve only started learning it recently but from what I can understand as seen above, the left should be saying “「Friendship·Hard work·Success」Interchangeable action figure!” and, sadly, I do not understand the meaning on the right but the last part should be “Saikou!” which is Mashiro’s alias. Please correct me if I’m wrong!
Next, we move on to the contents! Mashiro comes with an eye-catching red background with windows on the sides and also a lot of accessories! Wow!
Some items are rather small so you have to be careful not to lose them! There is also a manual showing you how to set up Mashiro and his desk for him to work with. The instructions are in Japanese but it is graphical enough for any normal person to understand so it’s a very helpful manual!
Sadly, he didn’t come as perfect to me because his bottom part was loose so it’ll be lowered when there’s no base for him to rest on, but it’s alright because this problem can be easily fixed with some glue!
Overall, this is a very fun and adorable figure, and because he comes with so many extra parts and accessories, you can display him with a lot of different poses! But I think it could have been better if there was a hole drilled on the top of the ink bottle to make it possible for putting the brush in! Though, all in all, Mashiro is definitely worth the purchase!
