This was an actual conversation that somehow managed to go on the other day… but eventually I managed to find them through all the chaos of the recent move!
001
Aki-san’s 40th Birthday Present : Takapai Mahjong Tiles!

All of the tiles feature the words ‘Good Smile’ on them! They are a one-of-a-kind original set of Mahjong tiles!
002
Anyway, today I’ll be taking a look at this lovely Nendoroid!

From Saki Achiga-hen:

Nendoroid Nodoka Haramura!

From the anime series filled with cute girls who love playing Majhong, “Saki Achiga-hen” comes a Nendoroid of Nodoka Haramura, also known as ‘Nodacchi’! She also comes with a large selection of optional parts to help you recreate your favorite scenes!

Her bust-size is even nice and clear in Nendoroid size!!

003

This is how she looks from the back!

Her long, straight hair looks absolutely lovely from the back! Is it just me or do pink-haired characters seem to have the largest busts…?

She also comes with a chair and her stuffed penguin, Etopen!
004

You can put her hair up in twin-tails!

You can choose between having the long hair or the twin-tails with a quick switch of some parts! You could even change her hairstyle to suit the weather!

You can also display her holding Etopen!

This is actually a separate Etopen, so you actually get two versions of him!
005

The “I’ll definitely win!” pose!

By replacing the side hair with a separate part you can pose her with her hand up in the air like this! That smiling expression with her mouth slightly open also looks absolutely lovely!
006

She also comes with sitting parts!

An entirely separate lower body part that allow you to pose her seated on the chair! You really do get quite a lot of variety with all the different body types and hairstyles!

She has bent arms, and an Etopen for the sitting pose!

That means there are actually three different versions of Etopen! Nakajima was the head of planning for this figure, and you can really see he had a soft spot for the little penguin! 😛
007

A spaced-out face and 2-bamboo tile!

This is the expression she always had when she went into her awakened state while playing mahjong – which makes it ideal for posing her in the middle of a mahjong game!

I kind of which I had a full-size miniature majhong table to display with her! If more Nendoroids from the series come out, perhaps Phat company will consider it!

008

Reach! She also has a 1000 point bar!

It’s a bit hard to see in this image, but it is the blue reach bar! I’ve only ever seen white versions before, but apparently there really are blue ones as well!

Another thing that I haven’t really touched on is her lovely uniform! The half-sleeves together with that design look so wonderful!
