Michiko is Kamiko's teenage niece and her only known surviving relative, being the daughter of Kamiko's elder sister Noriko who was killed during the Great Anarchy.  It was Noriko's dying wish that Kamiko look after Michiko and so Kamiko, honoring her elder sister's wishes has taken on the role of Michiko's mother more or less.  This is not easy for Kamiko as she is not and never has been the "mother type," and Michiko though very close to Kamiko is even more vengeful and vindictive in nature that Kamiko, seeking revenge for the death of her parents and siblings at every opportunity.  Kamiko once left her in charge of some captured road bandits, with instructions "not to let them get away." When Kamiko returned, she found that Michiko had beheaded all six prisoners.  When Kamiko expressed her displeasure (she had planned on hanging them instead) Michiko argued that her only orders were "not to let the prisoners get away," and by beheading them, she had ensured they would not.

"Look Aunty!  The prisoners are right where you left them," was how she responded. Kamiko has since learned to keep a close eye on Michiko.

Though she is like Kamiko, fluent in both English and Japanese, Michiko fancies herself as a ninja and more often than not refuses to speak English, communicating with Kamiko and the other Japanese speaking members of Kimono Troop only Japanese.  She has a close bond to both Gogo and Miyori who have become surrogate sisters to her.  


The head sculpt is a I8 Toys H001B that I obtained from Big Bad Toys in the hopes of placing it on a different body and having them represent a 1/6th version of the Girls und Panzer character Shiho Nishizumi, however when the head sculpt arrived, I found that it was too small looking for most of the bodies I had but a much better match for the S24A body I was using for Kamiko'd pal Miyori than the one that was currently on it.  Sooooo, I swapped out that head sculpt and Miyori's top for the H0018 and the cammo hoodie and it became Michiko. At the same time, I tried the YM Toys head sculpt I was using for Miyori on the S23B body I use for Luna Kabooma and the combination looked awesome, so I ordered another S23B from Giantoy to be Miyori's new body and we'll just have to wait and see what happens next.

"Kamiko's murderous little ninja-niece, Michiko" is quite the vicious little thing, but oh! So pretty!

I had not heard of the i8 heads until now. Very pretty. It looks to be quite authentically Asian in appearance, and of very nice quality.

Ah, you borrowed some of Miyori's outfit as well as her body! No wonder I like this outfit so much! Your Miyori has... had... one of the coolest-looking uniforms among all your figures that I've thus far seen. Now the honor belongs to Michiko!

Looking forward to seeing Miyori back in action soon.

That is certainly an impressively detailed weapon! Much nicer than all the "toy grade" plastic firearms I'm using.

Miyori will be back in action just as soon as the new body arrives from China.

Michiko's weapon is a British Sterling SMG. I used to carry the Canadian version in the Canadian Army. It varied only in minor details from the British version and was quite a handy little weapon, and when used with hot loads, very reliable. In the 80's we went over to a lower powered 9mm load and the weapons stopped working properly in the semi-automatic mode, there not being enough blowback energy to send the bolt all the way to the rear, so it fired full auto all the time until we lightened the bolts by drilling out some holes in them. Not long afterwards, we replace out SMG's and FN rifles with the M16 which we called the C7 Rifle.

The scale weapon carried by Michiko is a Dragon models one, parted out from a Falklands Islands figure and purchased through Echobase Toys when I first got into this hobby. It fits the hands of the smaller figures nicely but is quite fragile.
