I came across a friend’s flickr photo and realised that the obitsu body has a new type of body, and I liked what I saw, so I bought a couple off ebay to sample. ^^

After some thinking, I decided Hagu (my Honey and Clover “fan art” doll) would be the new recipient of the new 25 cm body ^^! Just realised that her blush had faded a bit over time (oops) hope to find time to reapply soon ^^

So here are some comparison pix of the new and old body:
The new body has soft bust and torso, the latter I didn’t know about so it was a surprise. My only concern with soft rubber parts is sometime they tend get stained by dark clothing easier. But that hasn’t happen yet — I rarely put dark clothing on my dolls.

My older obitsu body came with a bald head, some neck parts which I never use, and some spare hands, the new body comes with a couple neck parts and a few hands as well. I think the older type of body these days do not come with the head anymore — from my most recent search on ebay.

Different elbow joints – the new joint is easier to bend for elbows, but for knee it’s a bit harder to bend to desired positions.

Side of knee joints – I noticed that the older body has more visible seamlines compared to the new one.

Similar pose ^^

Hopefully this entry is for some help for people who are considering to get obitsu body for their dolls. Thanks for reading!
