*NSFW* New Arrival: Neko to Isu Event Limited Color Version

chairpost01Or “Cat and Chair”, as it is probably more commonly known.

Now, before you go any further, this post is Not Safe For Work!  As it contains catgirl lewdity and nudity.

chairpost02Cat and chair and lilies for a fancy picture.  Drug through a few filters in Paintshop, as well.

So, Cat and Chair “Event Limited Color Version”, made by Embrace Japan and apparently from something called “Planet of the Cats”, which is supposedly some sort of doujin that I’ve never been able to find (but if you know something, I would definitely like to know).  It’s billed as a “non-scale” figure, but it actually seems like it’s around 1/7 scale, given the size.  Bought from Otacute, where it’s currently still part of their “going out of business” sale, so now would be the time to jump on it if you’re interested, before Otacute closes down forever in October.  This is the third version of the figure, and I’m glad now that I decided to pass over the two previous versions, since personally this is the best color scheme of the three.

And this is definitely something I couldn’t just pass up, since it’s relevant to my interests in quite a few ways.  A catgirl, of course; the combination of white hair and tanned skin; and though I don’t care about bondage, I still like the aesthetic qualities of chains and collars (or at least things that look like collars).  Quite happy with it.

Like my other attempts at posts for static figures, this will probably be all over the place and barely be coherent, but there are a lot of pictures and hopefully they communicate the figure better than my words probably will.

chairpost03Full front view.  Cat and Chair also comes with another smaller cat designed to sit right in the way of the view.  Naturally, it has no base, since the chair is the base, but one of the legs on my chair is just slightly uneven with the other legs.

chairpost04Left side view.

chairpost05Back view, with the chair.  Even it has a pair of cat ears!

chairpost06Right side view.

chairpost07Moving the catblock out of the way for a closer shot.  Unfortunately, the paint quality on the figure is mixed.  The main figure itself and the chair both came out fine, but the paint on the shirt is lacking a bit, despite the simplicity of the color scheme.

chairpost08The Cat’s face gives the figure a whole lot of character, and is really well done.  At some angles it gives her a bored look, while at other angles she seems pretty displeased at the way she’s being treated while apparently not being able to do much about it.

chairpost09I think this picture was for showing the paint issues on the front of the shirt, with the white bleeding into the blue area.  I assume the lower quality on just the shirt has to do with it being the main cast-off part and being made of a soft plastic material, unlike the rest of the figure.

chairpost10More paint issues.  White specks can be seen on the shoulder poof, and I think the ribbons on the arms are supposed to be painted a darker blue, but it’s so poorly done it’s hard to tell.

chairpost11The figure doesn’t peg into the chair in any way, but it does make contact in several places, with the leg that goes on the chair’s arm being a bit problematic.  It’s a bit tricky to wedge it in the right place to look right and resting on the arm instead of just floating in the air.

chairpost12Which unfortunately results in paint transfer.  Luckily it’s not really visible and hopefully correctable.

chairpost13For some odd reason, the Cat’s tail is painted blue instead of the same white as her hair and ears.  I’m a bit tempted to try and change it to white, if I could actually match the colors and figure out how to keep it from going bad, since the tail is made of the same soft plastic as the shirt.  Which probably also explains the red of the ribbon being a bit poorly done.

chairpost14Meanwhile, the ribbon on her head looks pretty nice.  Using a shiny paint like that seems to be a good way to emulate silk or similar cloth.

chairpost15Cat and Chair comes with a total of three chains that need to be attached out of the box.  Each one has clasps on each end to make it a mostly painless process.  They’re all the same length, so they can’t be mixed up.

chairpost16The left side has one chain going from the Cat’s wrist to the chair’s left ear thing.

chairpost17The right side has another wrist chain, as well as one going to the right ankle, both again connecting at the chair’s right ear thing.

chairpost18The back of the figure’s head, which ultimately won’t be seen much.

chairpost19The rump.  Some sitting figures will have parts of the sculpt be “squished” to accommodate the sitting, but the sculpt on Cat doesn’t do that anywhere.

chairpost20Although the right arm appears to be a separate piece, it seems to get fused to the right leg at the arm’s elbow as part of the assembly process.  The right arm isn’t removed as part of the cast-off, though there’s a seam hidden under the shirt.

chairpost21Since the shirt does have to come off, it has rather large seams running down the sides.  I guess at the very least they’re not obvious at the main viewing angle for the figure.

chairpost22The right side’s seam.

chairpost23Bringing back the oddly-colored blockcat.  It kind of has to be precariously perched on the edge of the chair to get the intended effect.

chairpost24The head can turn some, though.

chairpost25The chair on its own.  Pretty nice looking, though it’s use for other figures might be a bit limited since the seat’s pad is sculpted to allow for the Cat to sit in it properly.

chairpost26The seat is “hollow”, though, instead of being a solid piece.  Also, MADE  IN  CHINA

chairpost27So, getting to the good stuff and starting the cast-off process.  The panties are the easiest thing to remove, and they actually barely stay in place anyways.  They’re really only held in place by the slightest of friction, though while sitting they obviously won’t go anywhere.

chairpost28It’s not absolutely necessary to take the tail off, but it does come right off to get it out of the way.

chairpost29After that, the head, right hand, and left arm all come off.  It’s also not necessary to unhook any of the chains to do the cast-off, but it does make things easier to unhook them from the Cat.

chairpost30Interestingly, the left arm uses a pretty decent locking mechanism to keep the arm from slipping off or anything.  The right hand also has a bit of a lock, though much less of one since it doesn’t need it as much.

chairpost31Then you pull the shirt apart and try to force it off by pulling it from the top.  Annoyingly, it doesn’t come off very easy.  I’ve also had trouble with one of those little pegs that hold the shirt together normally falling out when I go to take the shirt off.  Thankfully, I haven’t lost it, yet.

chairpost32Cat comes with two extra armbands to stick on in cast-off mode, which hide the seams on the arms.  The left arm’s band (the fully-closed one) just slides in place with one-way tabs, while the right armband (the open one) has to be clamped around the arm, and has another one-way tab to hold it in position.

chairpost33Finally, fully cast-off and put back together.  Cat quickly goes from just being lewd to being quite erotic, especially combined with that facial expression.

chairpost34Left side cast-off view.

chairpost35Right side cast-off view.  Back view omitted because it doesn’t really change.

chairpost36The combination of the pose and facial expression gives the cast-off figure a feeling like she’s presenting, but only because she’s being told to do so by her master.  It is nice.

chairpost37The sculpt and paint on the body are very nicely done.  The belly button even has a nice scrunch to it.

chairpost38Another shot.  There’s just the right amount of pink on the nipples.

chairpost39The crotch is pretty decently detailed, although there’s no hint of pubic hair.  It contributes to the feeling of Cat being a bit young.

chairpost40Cat’s hair is a bit awkward while cast-off, since it’s sculpted to be going around the shirt and its poofy shoulders, leaving these gaps.

chairpost41The gaps on the other side.

chairpost42If you really wanted to, I suppose you could also pose her in nopan mode, since the panties are so much easier to get off, anyways.  I’m honestly pretty tempted to leave her on display fully cast-off, though.  She looks a lot better while naked, with more of that hair color/skin color contrast to admire, and the shirt really doesn’t add all that much with the lacking paint job.  Good thing I live alone in an apartment and almost never have any visitors!

chairpost43Cat and Chair and Box.  It’s got some cat-shaped cutouts.

chairpost44A quick size comparison with some randomly-selected figures.  She’s actually bigger than what I was expecting, even with the sitting pose.

chairpost45Picture I used to make the header image.

chairpost46An expanded view of what the hell was going on in that fancy picture (NEW DESK!).

chairpost47Actually worked fairly well with that 1/12 bed I have!

chairpost48Cat and Chair and Takoluka.

Now for a bunch of random extra pictures.  Mostly of the Cat being naked.  Lots of random angles and playing around with different light sources.  I wasn’t really able to get anything out of my little glass table setup, since for the most part the chair just blocked most light coming from below, and Cat doesn’t really work well without the chair or something else to sit on.

  1. Agreed on it looking better when cast-off. While not BROWN brown, the darker skin + white hair is supreme. And really, when the figure is rough around the edges, removing the just makes the quality seem a lot better as a result :p

    • The colors are about just right for me. Not particularly interested in going further towards ganguro…

      That most of the issues are contained to removable parts is convenient, though it’d also be nice if there weren’t issues to begin with, especially since the original retail on this figure is around $100. And special limited editions are supposed to be better than normal runs! MFC says this figure was limited to 50 but that doesn’t seem right, as Amiami is taking pre-orders for some reason, maybe a re-release.
