vs Bandai?

As I'm not very familiar with the source material, I had expected her to be a mirror image of her sister, i.e. using her bow in the right hand with the guard on the left (is kyudo even taught that way to left-handers? I have no idea). But I think you are correct that having the flattop on her left arm actually works much better for the same handed-ness as Akagi. Somehow the dark stockings make her knees look less weird as well.

I want to ask if you have any info or opinion on how the fleet girl figures are being split up, with Bandai getting some in the AGP line and Good Smile getting some in the Figma line. My limited experience has been that Bandai can make a decent posable figure on their good days, but the details don't hold up well next to Figmas (and they are slightly different scales). From what I've seen of Yamato, it looks like Bandai was not having a good day at all...

AGP vs figma

So far it seems like Bandai gets the more elaborate Fleet Girls like Yamato and Musashi whereas Max Factory gets the more compact releases. Although with the upcoming AGP Atago and soon to be released figma Nagato, the division isn't as clear.

Atago is coming out soon and I intend to review her so look forward to more comparisons between Bandai and Max Factory on the KanColle front.

I am not planning on getting any of the TakaraTomy figures. 1/12 scale is more my size.

Interesting connection

I've watched two episodes of the boats, and it's earning a solid "meh" so far. But I just realized that Kaga's sis is voiced by Saki Fujita, which is kinda neat if you're a vocaloid fan. I wouldn't mind a crossover figure, a la Fei-Yen Miku HD!

I forgot if I've asked this

I forgot if I've asked this before but will you be reviewing figma Shimakaze? Watching the anime now, I hope to see Naka, the idol one.
