I really, really want Nendoroid Ritsu Tainaka – is there any chance we can see a resale of her?
I managed to get all the others when they went on resale, but Ritsu just never appears… The other band members say they are lonely and are leaving a tear-filled pillow every night. Or perhaps that’s just me…

… I’ve always wanted to say that!
And the reason I can say that is very simple! There have been lots id requests for a Ritsu Nendo resale, and thus she is indeed coming back again! Apologies for the delay!
Nendoroid Ritsu Tainaka!
She is of course from the ever-popular anime series ‘K-ON!’, and is the drummer in Sakura High’s light music club. Her going on resale also means that every one of the K-ON Nendoroids have gone on resale!
This is how she looks from the back!
Most Nendoroids released at the moment feature the ‘arm’ stand that pushes into the Nendoroid’s back, but to keep Ritsu consistent with the other four girls she still makes use of the ‘sitting’ stand. It’s a little different to the normal stand though – she actually stands on the ground and not the base – this is so that she doesn’t look off when posed playing the drums.
Let’s move onto the optional parts!
Her sobbing face and bump on the head!
Those of you who already own her will know – but the bump actually attaches with a magnet! Isn’t that smart!
It’s a little more work for the production team, but it means you won’t see a giant hole in her head when the bump isn’t attached. Tsukki from the production team came up with the idea!
A flustered expression and hands!
Perfect to recreate the pose above in Nendoroid form! The hands were actually for use for the sobbing face, but I think this works great as well! Oh, and the cake isn’t included with the Nendoroid – it’s my own personal mini chocolate cake!

／ <○> <○> ＼. Still just as impressive as ever!”

Plus she has parts to sit her in front of the drums!
Allowing you to recreate a scene right from the stage!
This is how it looks from the back!
Even the pedals can be seen on the tiny drums! Dodoof! (<- An attempt at a writing the sound a bass drum makes )
Parts to display her with her hair down!
The hair is supposed to be displayed with the flustered face along with the ‘love letter’, to recreate a scene from one of the extra episodes, but I decided to use an expression from another character instead! Her expressions are exchangeable with a couple of other Nendoroids, so you can play around with them!
But wow… drums, three expressions, different hair, a sitting lower body… she really comes with a lot!
Displayed together with Nendo Petite Ritsu!
Ritsu fans can display the two of them together like so!
