Today is the ⑨th day of the ⑨th month in the year 2022; that means it’s the Cirno day!
This is my first figure posting in many years (five, actually). Contrary to my usual style of writing these anime etc. figure reviews in my native Finnish and just adding a short English summary, I’m doing the opposite now and writing mostly in English.
I have fallen totally in love with all things Touhou (東方Project): the original games (yes, I’m BAD at playing them…), the spinoff games, the community/fan content – comics, videos, cosplay, games – and especially the wonderful music composed by ZUN itself and the various remixes made by the community. It seems that lately I haven’t been listening much else than Touhou related music. Fact: ZUN (太田 順也, Ōta Jun’ya) is one of the best composers of our time.
Like every Touhou fan, I have my own preferences among the denizens of Gensokyo. I like the Koishi + Kokoro couple, also the arguments between the two idiots Kaguya and Mokou are hilarious. No-one can really avoid liking Marisa… But for some reason or other the dim-witted, stubborn, overconfident, childish ice fairy Cirno seems to always rise above the others. So not to feel all alone during the Covid epidemy I had to somehow get a Nendoroid version of Cirno to stand on top of my desktop computer…
CIRNO IS THE STRON⑨EST!!!
After having graduated from the Perfect Math Class, she has also became an Einstein-grade mathematical genius. Here’s the proof:
Cirno with her customary overconfident grin and posture.
Wait, there’s something interesting between her legs…
IT’S ONLY THE NUMBER ⑨!!! BAKA!!!
This Cirno figure is the number 167 of the “Nendoroid”-series manufactured by the Good Smile Company, originally released in August 2011. It’s bit of a shame I didn’t understand to start collecting Touhou Nendoroids back then, nowadays they are quite difficult to find, and being collector’s items, more expensive now than when new.
For those who are uneducated enough to not to be aware of the connection between Cirno and the number ⑨ (nine), please see the explanation in the Touhou Wiki.
…Ja sitten sama suomeksi… no ei, jääköön lyhyeksi yhteenvedoksi:
Tämä on tosiaan ensimmäinen figuuripostaukseni viiteen vuoteen. Tänä aikana minusta on tullut totaalinen Touhou-fani. ZUN’in musiikki ennenkaikkea kiinnostaa, mutta tottakai kaikki muukin Gensokyo’n alueella tapahtuva.
Ylläoleva Cirno-figuuri on GSC’n “Nendoroid”-sarjaa, julkaistu elokuussa 2011.
