In 2007 Volks made three Chara Dollfies, each based on a Muv-Luv character. A Chara Dollfie was a fashion doll-sized fully articulated figure with molded hair; their body was used earlier for UFS dolls. My Chara Dollfie is Yashiro Kasumi, the character that had several dolls made by Volks (a UFS in 2004 and a DD in 2005).

Basically, there are only two things that I can say about this doll: 

1. The package is very stylish

2. This doll is a real pain in the ass to assemble and dress up.

There are so many pictures of the doll on the box that they already show all the aspects. For en even more detailed reference, there's a booklet inside:

Now the actual contents.

Her extra hands are strangely bigger than they should be:

The process of dressing her up was so painful that I didn't take pictures of all the steps required, and I have to admit I was very annoyed. The pieces are small, tight and not really well made, and you can't dress up or undress Kasumi without dismembering her.

Now it's time to assemble her hair. Just like with the clothes, I wouldn't say that the parts fit particularly well.

OK, she seems to look nice, but, as I said, nothing fits, and it will be problematic to demostrate Kasumi outside her box.
