Where do you think you’re taking that figure?!

Wait! Before you take her, PLEASE let me take some photos!

Prototype figures are always going off to publishers, or heading off to China! It’s so hard to find the time to get photos in! But I’ll do my best in what little time I have! :P


From ‘Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai’:
Nendoroid Menma!

From the super popular anime series that aired earlier this year, “Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai” comes this lovely Nendoroid of the mascot character of the “Super Heiwa Busters” – the lovely Menma wearing her simple, white one piece!

So many of the GSC staff were crying over this series! :P
It was so popular with the WEB team that I remember one Thursday someone said, “We need to get this evening’s meeting over quickly! Ano Hana is on tonight!”! ^^


This is how she looks from the back!

Those of you who have seen the anime will know that Menma is almost always bare foot! There are very few Nendoroids with bare feet, so it gives her a lovely original feeling!

At first look her one piece might look a little simple, but if you look close there is very careful gradient paint work done for shadowed areas, and it actually has very fine little frills to it as well!


Let’s move onto the optional parts!
There are lots of parts that help you recreate some great scenes from the anime!

First up is outstretched arms!

This is to recreate the famous key visual from Chichibu Bridge!
This makes me remember Menma running around all playfully on the bridge!!


A flower, hands to hold it and a bent leg!

Okay… so does everyone know which scene this is…?
It’s from the opening song just before the title appears, Menma holds up a flower! It’s such a short scene and yet it leaves such a strong impression!

There is a bent leg for both left and right sides – and the big toe is actually visible on them… plus it’s slightly different on either one! :P


A smiling face, her diary and hands to hold it!

An expression with an innocent little smile and closed eyes – such an adorable expression!! It will be used to recreate a famous scene a little later on, so remember it!

Plus the diary from episode 10 is also included!
It’s so tiny, and yet you can still even make out Menma’s handwriting inside! Yay!


A determined face and steamed bread!

This kind of shows off Menma’s childish side quite nicely! Such a cute expression that suits her so nicely! She also comes with some of the steamed bread she made in the series, along with hands to carry it! If you combine it with the Nendoroid playset (Japanese), you can kind of recreate Jin-tan’s room as well!


Flowers with stands and hands behind her back!

These allow you to recreate the scene from the ending theme!
The flower parts are connected with a ball joint so you can easily change the angle they are displayed at. The base for the final version is also planned to be a flowery one like you see here!

You can recreate the famous key visuals, the OP and ED as well as some of the wonderful scenes from the series itself! Great job, Shuu-chan!


Bonus Scene!

Let’s try some Menma cosplay!
