Preview | Gift: Shinonono
Houki (Swimsuit Ver.)

Here’s a really cute Shinonono Houki figure from Gift. She’s basically one of the main characters from the anime series Infinite Stratos. This swimsuit design is pretty popular since I also saw the very same concept in one of Wave’s “Beach Queens” figure of her. Currently scheduled for September 2014, ¥8,300.

Character Info

Houki Shinonono (篠ノ之 箒, Shinonono Houki) is a 1st year student at the IS Academy in Class One and the 1st childhood friend of Ichika Orimura. She is the 1st heroine to be introduced in the Infinite Stratos series.

Houki's appearance is a young teenage girl with long black hair and a green base ribbon with black stripes tied around her hair as a ponytail (later white base and red stripes in episode 12), and parted at her forehead, she has dark blue eyes, and usually wears her IS Academy uniform with high stockings that creates a Zettai Ryouiki. She is also seen wearing a kendo uniform. At first her IS training uniform matched the standard one that all other female students used but after gaining Akatsubaki she changes to one that is dominantly white with a black neckline and black edges on the legs.

In the light novel, it states that she is very well-endowed, as she was once complaining about the size of her breasts being too big, only to think to herself that maybe Ichika likes that. Tabane also comments on her growth in that area before getting hit on the head with a bokken.
