With the third and final installment in the Atelier Ryza trilogy now available on PS4, PS5, PC, and Nintendo Switch, it’s time we talk about the most important aspect of Ryza—her thighs (and figures that show off those thighs).
Yes, Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key is a brilliant game (as were the last two installments), but Ryza didn’t rocket Gust’s niche crafting JRPG to the top of everyone’s radar with just a few graphical tweaks. Ryza’s ‘perky’ personality and Gust’s willingness to rubber-stamp a huge variety of figures have made her a beloved gaming icon even outside of Atelier fans.
So today on Honey’s Anime, we’re not talking about the games themselves—but instead, the Top 5 Atelier Ryza Figures That You Have to Own!
5. Ryza (Reisalin Stout) — (2020, Wonderful Works)
Before she was exploring the royal capital or charting mysterious islands, Ryza was the ‘girl next door’ with a big smile, a cute bonnet, and thighs that could squish a Puni like a watermelon. The original 2020 Wonderful Works figure, which saw a 2021 re-release, is still one of our favorite designs, especially with the attention to detail in her clothes and staff.
If you really enjoyed the aesthetic and vibes of Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, this 1/7th is a great synthesis of size and price, coming in at a surprisingly affordable ¥20,680!
4. Nendoroid Ryza
Look at that smug little grin. Ryza’s cooking up some kind of adventure, we just know it!
Nendoroids are always great value for money, and Ryza’s official Nendoroid is as cute and functional as ever, offering a variety of expressions and equipment (such as an alchemy beaker, and her trademark staff). You also don’t need to break the budget, with Ryza’s Nendoroid costing ¥7,073 at the time of launch!
3. Ryza (Reisalin Stout): Swimsuit Ver.
There’s no mystery as to why Atelier Ryza has been such a runaway success for Gust. The first game in the series sold 500,000 copies in just a single year—making it the best-selling title in the series, and subsequent titles have only continued that trend.
For better or worse, Gust decided to dispense with their colorful ‘cute frills’ vibe and lean straight into the ecchi-inspired market, to staggering success. As such, this 1/7th Swimsuit version of Ryza has some of the most perfectly sculpted ‘beach balls’ you’re ever going to see, and it even comes with an ocean-themed baseplate!
The best part? Taking off clothes apparently takes off the price too, since this figure will only set you back ¥16,900!
2. Ryza (Reisalin Stout): Negligee Ver. & Klaudia Valentz: Negligee Ver.
Anybody with a passing interest in Ryza could probably have guessed these two figures (each sold separately) would make their way onto our list—and why not?! It’s incredibly rare for lewd figures with translucent clothing to be officially licensed (and yes, there are anatomically correct ‘bumps’ on Ryza’s boobs; somebody at Gust literally had to sign off on that!).
Despite Ryza and Klaudia being one of the worst yuri-bait teases in recent RPG memory, we can’t help but be pleased with how well these two figures sit together. Each comes with its own set of pillows and clothes to create a full ‘bedtime’ look-and-feel.
Unfortunately, indulging in this fantasy will burn a hole through your wallet—each 1/7th figure costs ¥22,880, for an eye-watering ¥45,760 altogether. Just think of it as a financial investment in your collection…
1. Wonderful Works 1/7 Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key
Taking our top slot is the stunning 1/7th created by Wonderful Works for Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key. The wise, adult energy that Gust imbued her final incarnation with is practically radiant, and the flag trailing behind her staff conjures to mind a conquerer charging into the final battle.
Wonderful Works have given incredible detail to Ryza’s hair and clothes, with a bold pose that captures the confidence as an alchemist that she’s gained after all three of her games. By far the most expensive figure on our list, sitting at ¥26,378, we can’t help but feel the price is justified—if you could only afford to purchase one Ryza figure, we think this 1/7th is a must-have for any collector!
Our wallets certainly feel emptier, even if we didn’t order any figures ourselves! From cute Nendoroids to sexy negligee figures, developer Gust saw an opportunity to monetize their series beyond just the games—and in the process, anime and JRPG fans got some really amazing figures out of it!
