Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I lived in Hokkaido until I was half-way through kindergarten! You’d think I’d be strong against the cold, but I’m not really!
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Nendoroid Noel ★
|From the anime series ‘Celestial Method’ comes a Nendoroid of the ‘saucer girl’ Noel! She comes with a variety of option parts including a leaf umbrella, a cut out panel of Kirigon and a saucer cushion. She also comes with three expressions including a smiling face, a sulking face as well as the crying face with a gentle smile that was seen in episode 11 of the anime series.
The various optional parts allow you to recreate all sorts of scenes from the series! She even comes with a special ‘saucer’ part to display with her! Be sure to greet her with a warm smile when she joins your collection! ♪
From ‘Celestial Method’ the popular anime series written by Naoki Hisaya of ‘Kanon’ fame, with characters designed by QP:flapper, comes a Nendoroid of the mysterious but adorable little Noel!♪
Just looking at her smile makes me feel all warm inside!! ♡
Plus she comes with various parts to make her even cuter! ε=(｡・д・｡)
I’m sure most of you already know what this is!
She comes with a leaf umbrella!! (σ・∀・)σ
I can’t think of any character that would look better with a leaf umbrella!
I still think the scene where she picks a leaf and holds it over Nonoka was just too adorable! Seeing a little girl like her stretch out like that is so cute!! *nom* (●´ㅂ`●) *nom*
Those who agree with me about the cuteness will be happy to know that some Nendoroid Plus items featuring a Nendoroid illustration of her holding the leaf umbrella are shipping out from GSC on the 26th January! ♪
But anyway, let’s get back to the Nendoroid! She includes all sorts of optional parts to enjoy!!! (｀・ω・´)ゞ
The umbrella is only just the beginning!
For example… she comes with an amazing…
A truly indescribable level of cuteness!
The panel is planned to be made from cardboard.
(・∀・) “That’s not the only Kirigon!!”
We’re joined by the figure’s planner, Kyojin!!
(・∀・) “She also comes with a Nendoroid sized Kirigon panel to put her head through!”
THAT IS ADORABLE!
I can’t wait to try putting some other Nendoroids in for some photos! ♥︎
(・∀・) “The size takes the Nendoroid base into account and should work with most Nendoroids without problem!”
You can recreate the entrance to the ‘Shiihara’ souvenir shop! ♪
When I think of this panel together with Noel, the first thing that comes to my mind is episode 7! It was a very memorable scene!
(・∀・) “Which means that we just had to include parts that would let fans recreate that as well!”
The Kirigon panel that Noel and Souta fixed!
In other words…. three different Kirigon panels are included!
(・∀・) “Also, while the smile Noel gave after she had fixed Kirigon was lovely… we certainly couldn’t forget about the sad face she had while she was worrying about him! That was the image this expression was made in.”
Ah, that must be the ‘sulking face’ in the product description!
She really does look ready to burst into tears! It makes you wish you could jump to her side and give her a hug! (/ω＼)
(・∀・) “You can also use the expression to recreate this scene from episode 6!”
The saucer cushion!! ∑(ﾟДﾟ)
The expression really conveys that she isn’t quite happy with it…
Plus you can actually balance her on the stand and place her feet forward for a cute pose like this!
Noel sitting on the cushion!
The way the cushion is sculpted also really makes it look like it should be soft to the touch! It’s hard to believe it’s made from hard plastic! ♡
(・∀・) “There is still more!”
…? What more could there be?! (((( ;°Д°))))
(・∀・) “How about this?”
Oooohh!! The Saucer!!
(・∀・) “It’s the most important part of the story! It had to be included!”
The dome looks a bit like a big marble chocolate! It’s so pretty! ☆
As you can see from the image above, her twintails also have joints in them to match with more dynamic poses!
The saucer is actually rather large as well! Σ(･ω･ﾉ)ﾉ！
(・∀・) “While we had to make a few changes for it to be included with the Nendoroid in this size, we did keep it looking as close to the original as possible! The top and bottom even have different patterns on them as they should – be sure to take a closer look if you decide to pick her up!”
Plus the saucer will come with a special attachment part to allow you to display it floating up in the skies! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
This let’s you recreate the skies of Lake Kiriya City! ♪
By the way… I just noticed we’ve only seen two expressions.
Does she come with a third?
(・∀・) “Yep… the crying face from episode 11.”
(・∀・) “I can’t say too much as I don’t want to spoil anything… but anyone who has seen the series knows this is another expression that just had to be included.”
Nendoroids are great fun to play with and look at… but they can also be a great way to remember the storyline of an anime sometimes! Nendoroid Noel is filled with fun and is sure to remind you of the lovely storyline again and again! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)
(・∀・) “There are so many fun scenes to recreate, and I’m sure fans will love her!”
Packed fill with optional parts and expressions! ♪
She’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow! ♥︎
Check the GSC site tomorrow more more details!
