The main thing that I like about this set is all the extra bits and pieces which come with Rei and Asuka to form a nice little diorama. The desk and chair set includes Rei's school bag, her neatly folded uniform, as well as a little red sack. Asuka comes with the entire vaulting box set with a springboard and a mat. Set these all up in front of the cardboard backdrop and you'll have a cool scene. The figures are well-molded with good attention to details (e.g. shoe laces, creases on the P.E. top). Eyes are printed on like the Love Hina set. The painting is pretty good except for a few inconsistencies along the edge.
This photo set was taken with 2 ordinary incandescent table lamp (I don't have a flourescent lamp) and with my camera on white-balance. They were also edited using GIMP; I played around with the brightness, contrast, and white-balance. They didn't turn out too badly but I still think that they're abit too dark and the colors aren't as good as under sunlight. The advantage of using lamps is that I don't have to wait for a cloudless day and I can get rid of the strong shadows. The first photo was taken under sunlight and a flash so you can see the difference from the rest of the photos. The last few photos weren't edited with GIMP.
There are 2 other sets available in the same line (also with lots of props): Study Time, and Cleaning Time. I was tempted to get them but the shipping price on ebay put me off.
