From Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb:
|From the popular anime now onto it’s forth season, ‘Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb’ comes a Nendoroid of the main character, Yuno! You can recreate a number of scenes from all the opening themes up to now, as well as various other scenes!|
She was first seen back at the Summer WonFes, and I know fans have been waiting for her ever since!!
Seen she was so high up in the results of the polls, I’ve received a ton of emails asking about when she was going to be announced… I’m glad I can finally have her debut on the blog!
Just look how cute she is!!
Ume-sensei is also included! He is also cute in his own way!
This is how she looks from the back!
Yuno’s soft-looking hair and simple yet lovely uniform look great from the back! It’s like the figure just jumped right out of the actual series – she has that same relaxing atmosphere about her!
Yuno holding onto her sketchbook!
Using these special set of arms you can recreate this pose from the first season’s opening theme! I also posed her leaning forward just a little bit, which I think adds even more cuteness to the pose!!
Plus you also get the extra cute of Ume-sensei by her side… it’s almost too much cuteness at once!
Yuno sketching with her pencil!
She comes with a sketchbook and a special left hand part to hold it, and together with the included pencil allows you to pose her sketching like this!
Bent arms are included for both the left and right arms, and both the shoulders and upper arms are on an axis. This means that you can open out the arms to various degrees, giving you even more options when trying to strike a pose!
A smiling face and some bread!
Just by looking at this expression I think I can get all the energy I need to get through the day! Both the expression and the bread once again come from one of the opening themes of the series!
Oh, and Ume-sensei has a ball-joint in his neck making him posable as well!
Her third expression is blank!
We’ve seen this on Nendoroids in the past – the idea is that you can choose which expression you want! A set of stickers is included for you to pick the expression you think suits her best!
I decided to use the sticker on the bottom left for this photo – it’s an expression really suited to Ume-sensei’s works!
Displayed with Nendoroid Madoka!
Ume-sensei was responsible for the Hidamari manga, as well as the character designs in Madoka, so these two characters are actually linked together! This time Yuno is using the expression found on the upper right of the stickers!
For those who are wondering about whether or not her expressions will be switchable with other characters – it looks like it should work! We’ll have to see how the final product comes out after production though – no promises yet!
Miyako-chan is also on her way soon!!
I know this is one set of Nendoroids I want to collect now…
I also can’t wait to see the final colored version of her… and find out what optional parts she’ll come with!! As soon as I know more I’ll let everyone know!
But that’s all for today!
GSC also revealed the Oreimo
