Introducing the fifth entry in the ANIPLEX+ × ALTER Saekano lingerie figure collaboration, Hyoudou Michiru Lingerie ver! She sits beautifully with her hands in her lap and a calm smile on her face. Her paintwork is a tremendous recreation of the atmosphere in Misaki Kurehito original illustration.
Hyoudou Michiru wearing lingerie is finally here!
The fifth and final entry in the “How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend ♭” lingerie figure series is Hyoudou Michiru and she has finally arrived! Sculpting duties have belonged to ALTER for the previous entries in the series. They’ve reprised them for Michiru as well. Moreover, to ensure the project’s quality, the original character designer, Misaki Kurehito, has specifically drawn Michiru in this outfit and pose. Please see how ALTER carefully designed her according to the illustration. Her back, which isn’t visible in the illustration, has received careful consideration as well.
Michiru’s light blushing cheeks and the gradated tips of her loose wavy hair have delicate coloring to evoke the feeling of the illustration. Her Alice band with its butterfly-theme along with the outfit’s fasteners and other small details have been recreated to the finest detail as well.
Among Michiru’s must-see features are the way she stretches her legs and her pale skin that peeks through her sheer lingerie. Another is her gentle smiling face, which is quite different from her usual bright and cheerful expression.
Please welcome the musician of “blessing software,” Hyoudou Michiru presenting herself to you in lingerie.

At a Glance (click to enlarge)
One of the biggest improvements over the illustration is how her face isn’t as wide or round. Her hair fits her face much better now. Even her smile and eyes look different. You get a more cheerful smile in the illustration. I agree with Aniplex’s description of her smile as gentle. It is quite different from her usual boisterous one. Her smile also fits her pose and everything they’ve done to make her cute.
I can’t say that I’ve ever been a fan of her hair. The style resembles a “wolf-cut.” But it’s not really disheveled, making it kind of a tame wolf-cut. There’s no point to it. My main issue comes from how it looks at the back, she doesn’t have strands of hair, but strips of it. I want to say it looks “good enough” considering the source illustration doesn’t show her from behind. But other official illustrations do. Ultimately, this stylized look didn’t translate well into figure-form. Again.
The color and shading of her stockings are beautiful. So are her legs and the positions of her feet. I find myself preferring her right foot for the view of her ankle bones. Both heels are very good from the back, though. The same must be said for the tapering of her calves and how it leads to her heels. Each foot is slightly raised with shapely curvature. The creasing of the stockings by her heels is exceptional. It’s also very good by her knees.
I find the fan service on display tasteful. Michiru’s bare-back accounts for most of it. The satin-lined cutouts accentuate it without being too revealing. And because she’s not wearing a bra, you get a good look at the feminine curvature of her body.
