Pros and Cons

Other pros and cons to consider that haven’t been mentioned above.


  • Akeruka heads are easy to use as well as popular enough to have decent third party support.
  • Since it’s mainly a BOM head, you can use skins made for other brands and see if they fit. The image used for this post is actually made for a Catwa head.


  • Advanced W#08 doesn’t come with any skins, however the Advanced heads that came out before W#08 do come with skins made specifically for them.
  • It can be a bit tricky to find BOM skins specifically for W08.
