Boy Meets Girl is an unremarkable eroge released by Front Wing in early 2006, and Shingyouji Mao is one of its equally unremarkable heroines. We may never know what possessed Sofmap to front the production of this blatantly cheesecake figure version of her, but in an eternal pursuit of scantily clad PVC we have them to thank for providing an item that if not a monumental landmark is certainly a speed bump on the road to ero-ero figure perfection.

Heisei Democracy figure review: Goodsmile x Sofmap's Shingyouji Mao PVC from Boy Meets Girl

Heisei Democracy figure review: Goodsmile x Sofmap's Shingyouji Mao PVC from Boy Meets Girl

Shingyouji Mao is one of the heroines of the Front Wing eroge Boy Meets Girl, released on February 24th, 2006. Why figures are being made based on this particular game right now is beyond me, especially considering its tepid fan reception; perhaps Front Wing has signed an unholy pact with the gods of figuredom to release PVCs based on its games regardless of their quality, in which case the sooner we see some Kimihagu Serizawa Madoka action the better.


Heisei Democracy figure review: Goodsmile x Sofmap's Shingyouji Mao PVC from Boy Meets Girl

But I digress! We’re here to talk about Mao, and if there’s one thing that can be said about this figure it’s that it bears a startling resemblance to her in-game appearance. Assuming you’re a fan of the original designs there’s a lot to like here; I’m not particularly, so with the acknowledgment that this is a generally well crafted item I’ll point out a few of its salient features:

There’s not a whole lot of shading going on with this kit. The sculpt largely makes up for this with contours that provide natural shadow, so I think this was a fine decision. I also appreciate the decision to only lightly accentuate the coloring of the nipples; this is a far better effect than has been achieved on many other figures (*cough* hot pink bullets *cough*).

While nicely contoured, the overall pose isn’t dynamic enough to be very interesting. Among the many ways a character can be depicted in various states of undress this has to be one of the silliest… The boring pose isn’t helped by her ambivalent facial expression, which in turn isn’t helped by her eyebrows being hidden behind a massive wall of bangs. Get thee to a salon, young lady!

Despite a few shortcomings this figure succeeds in being cute where it really matters, and as an ero item has attention paid in all the right places. Not being a Boy Meets Girl purist I find this to be a fine rendering of the original character, and in my opinion a satisfactory purchase for most anyone into this sort of thing.

Overall Score: 8.5

+ high fidelity to the original design
+ consistently decent production values
+ ero-ero yo~

o static, uninteresting pose

– unable to sleep due to pondering the physics required to keep the front of her skirt in this position

As a final note, the asterisk next to the height measurement at the top of the review refers to the fact that the official listing of her height is 21 cm. Whipping out a ruler reveals that she’s actually a clean 20 cm, 20.5 if you include the base; I doubt she shrunk in shipping, so what gives, Goodsmile?
