The hype for Daiki Kougyou’s Sanae PVC grew steadily from the moment she was announced in June, through her listing in Hobby Japan in July, the scooping of her malleable chest in August, Amiami’s image update in September, her release delay to November in October, and finally the [ERO] revelation of her anatomical detail when she went on sale last week. After putting her through her paces today I can say with confidence that this is the best kit Daiki has ever produced, and is indeed a milestone in the development of PVC-based erotica. An excessive amount of pictorial evidence follows. Update: Sanae is currently available at Play Asia once again, though who knows for how long.

HD Sanae review

I was going to lead this review with the disclaimer that no bodily fluids were expended in the course of its production, but I cut myself in the process of trying to cast off her lower half – so yes, body fluids were used to make this review, just not the ones that might have been expected.

Aizawa Sanae is one of the heroines of Kotoyoshi Yumisuke’s Shokunyuu 2 eromanga, and as the below images show she was given a bit of a remodeling by the artist for the purposes of this kit. The loose hair is replaced by tight drills, and the less realistic elements of the costume are toned down and given greater detail.

I’m not going to go into great detail regarding Sanae’s character here (perhaps in a subsequent eromanga review), but suffice it to say that through the course of the manga she becomes domesticated in a way that leads to the expulsion of yet another sort of body fluid that lends itself to the choice of costume in question.

WordPress has a hard character limit for posts that I’m afraid I’ll hit if I wax on too much here regarding the awesomeness of Kotoyoshi’s original design, or the unique spin provided by the Vispo resin incarnation – they’re both luminaries of their respective fields, and I find it very hard for either to do much wrong when it comes to design illustrations on the one hand or sculpted interpretations of them on the other (hell, I already bought the kit once).

Instead I want to focus here on what Daiki has done with their PVC rendition. First I should say that in terms of production quality this is certainly the best kit Daiki has released to date. The paint job is quite solid, employing a wide variety of gloss and matte finishes to bring various textures of leather, metal and skin alive. Work on the trim is decent as well (though not spectacular), and there’s enough shading in the right places to convince me that they were really trying to go above and beyond their normal fare here. There isn’t much to mention in terms of visible seams other than on the replacement chest part, and it’s not nearly as bad as Amiami’s sample gallery; otherwise the casting job is largely excellent, with high-fidelity reproduction of detailed sculptural elements.

The biggest glaring problem with the production is arguably one of the kit’s selling points, and that is the lower cast off. It’s secured in place in the same way Tama-nee‘s bra was – PVC pegs superglue mounted into holes on the kit in such a way as to be virtually impossible to remove. This was a huge irritation, and I would’ve given up altogether if I didn’t know what was underneath; in the end I put a gash in my finger and broke off one of the pegs in the process of casting her off, and the result doesn’t even look that great thanks to the straps of her panties being painted on. I wish they hadn’t gone half way on this – if you don’t want us to take it off just fuse it to her crotch permanently, guys, and don’t sculpt anything tempting underneath. =_=

I tried to document the chest replacement procedure photographically as thoroughly as possible. The replacement breast part is essentially an empty shell of rubber like a balloon, easily deformable to the touch, especially after opening the air valve in the back of the part. The provided gel is there to add mass and some resistance to the part, though after filling it as much as possible it’s still quite yielding. I found half way through that taking the entire cap off the container of gel was a much more efficient way to fill the syringe, as demonstrated here; forcing the gel out through the thin tapering top is difficult and time consuming due to how viscous it is.

It’s a bit tricky to get the replacement part snugly in place, but once it’s there I found that it looks surprisingly good and is quite pleasurable to play around with. That, combined with the generally solid production quality (a first for Daiki) and the amazing original design and sculpt, as well as the uncensored (albeit flawed) lower castoff, gives me little choice but to mark this kit with a score only given to pieces of history, much like Spinal Tap‘s legendary amplifier:

Overall Score: 11/10

+ stunning original Kotoyoshi Yumisuke design
+ sensual, massively voluptuous Vispo sculpt
+ do-it-yourself breast augmentation kit actually yields good results
+ fully detailed undercarriage
+ best Daiki production values to date

o trim work is alright, a bit shoddy in places
o visible seams on the replacement chest part, hair

– difficult to connect milk can top to rope without damaging Update: this is avoidable, see comments for how
– nearly impossible castoff leaves holes behind, broken pieces, paint-on straps

In terms of the satisfaction I intend to derive from this kit once I’m finished writing this review I’d say the unprecedented score of eleven is most definitely warranted. This is an item I would recommend figure fans seek out merely as a piece of history, if not for the more obvious prurient interest aroused; as of writing she seems to be… no longer available anywhere, alas. Update: she’s still available at Yes Asia, if you can stomach their premium pricing. Good luck to all those awaiting preorders, and even better to those who missed out.

Update: Sanae is currently available at Play Asia once again, though who knows for how long.
