From "Steins;Gate", this is the Figma action figure of Kurisu Makise (牧瀬紅莉栖). ^^ Being the female protagonist of the story, I'm sure her role is significant in the development of the story. Folks who know the visual novel, or later adaptations of the story in game, manga, and anime formats can probably attest to that, and elaborate more on the character, but as someone who has absolutely no idea whatsoever of the story, I only know, and like Kurisu for her design. ^^ For that matter, she and Black Rock Shooter can be considered sisters, as they came from the same designer, Huke. Much like Figma BRS2035, I think Huke's unique artistic character design has been translated very well onto this Figma figure, which is the only reason I got it in the first place. ^^ In terms of the action figure herself, it's probably going to be just as "ordinary" as R. Dorothy Wayneright, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. ^^

Also, now that I brought up Black Rock Shooter and Figma BRS2035, I'll make sure the latter is featured before the end of the review series. ^^

Except for her option hand units and Figma stand, all of Kurisu's accessories can be seen through the front window.

Typical Figma design on all sides of the box.

Being the motif of "Steins;Gate", there are plenty of illustrations depicting gears of various designs and sizes all over the box.

I haven't seen or played Steins;gate either, but I know I want this figure of Dr. Pepper Girl.
