The Akihabara GSC Testu Café!

I’m here today to take some new prototype photos! (・∀・)ノ

The GSC Tetsu Café is currently running a Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT Café! Plus this weekend is TAF (the Tokyo International Anime Fair @ Ariake), so this was the only place I was able to find some prototypes to take photos of!

Stabilizing the camera on my knee while taking photos was rather bad manners out in public, and it was even harder with all the customers watching me! :P
From Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT:
Nendoroid Kobato Hasegawa!

From the anime series “Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT” comes a Nendoroid of Kodaka’s little sister, the adorable Kobato Hasegawa! Her cute goth-loli outfit has been shrunk down, and her different colored eyes look just as cute in Nendoroid form! The patched-up bunny plushie she always holds on to is included, along with the ‘An-chan Plushie’ which shows just how severe her brother complex is!

The third Haganai Nendoroid, following on from Yozora and Niku!

The upper arm of her adorable goth-loli outfit (where the red ribbons are) is detachable, and her hips are fitted with a Nendoroid joint which makes her really posable!! It’s so much fun!

Plus she also comes with a load of optional parts to play with!!
This is how she looks from the back!

Her outfit has frilly lace all over, but the lace on her sleeves and petticoat are separate parts – which gives a much more realistic feel to the outfit!

The frills in her hair can spin around to make sure that they won’t get in the way of posing the twin tails!
Her patched-up bunny is also included!

It’s so tiny but still so detailed!! There are still so many separately painted areas… and just look at the tiny stitches!! (((゜Д゜)))

You can pose her holding it with just one arm like in the image above, or with both arms instead!
I got thirsty so I ordered a Kobato Hasegawa juice! (・∀・)

I actually really wanted to try the ‘Neighbor’s Club Udon’, but I don’t think it would be a good idea to eat with trying to take photos of Kobato-chan! But I’ll definitely be back another time to try some!!

Every time you order a drink at the café, you also get a lovely character coaster to take home with you! There are many different series menus to choose from, so be sure to check out the café if you’re ever in Akihabara!!

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT Café:
A smiling expression and An-chan plushie!

Once again, amazing quality for such a tiny part!! Σ(゜Д゜;)

To show just how much Kobato loves her brother, she even comes with a plushie of him!! Separate bent arms (not the same ones as for the bunny) are also included for her to hold this plushie.

When she holds the bunny plushie it’s more like she is hugging it, but with the An-chan plushie it’s more like she is gently wrapping him in her hands instead!
“My name is Leysis Vi Felicity Sumeragi…
    an ancestor of the Great Blood Clan of the Night!”

We can’t forget this pose!!

Two special arms are also included to fully recreate the ‘Leysis’ pose!! You really can pose Kobato in all of her most important poses! 。・゜・(ノД`)・゜・。
But the most amazing parts have to be these!! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ
A sulking expression and sitting parts!

She’s so adorable!!!

I guess there are some people who might not find this to be a cute expression… but I think I need to sit them down in a late-night bar and help them get the facts straight!!

Posed faces aren’t what makes girls cute!! It’s expressions like this!!

Expressions like these are the ones that really show off true personality, which makes them all the more special! Just looking at her like this makes me want to pet her on the head and say “There, there… everything will be alright’. :P
Plus, Nendoroid Yozora Mikaduki is being rereleased!

She’ll be up for preorder on the same day that Kobato opens for preorders! Yozora even comes with the sofa in the Neighbor’s club, so if you missed out the first time, be sure you don’t miss out again!!
From Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT:
Nendoroid Kobato Hasegawa!

She’ll be up for preorder from the 26th March! (`・ω・´)
Get in contact with our partner shops if you have any preorder or sales queries!

Finally, a quick notice!!

On the 23rd and 24th March, GSC will be at the Tokyo International Anime Fair at the Tokyo Big Sight! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ

The booth name at the event is “GOOD SMILE COMPANY & ULTRA SUPER PICTURES (Booth #D-2)”! There will be a number of companies involved in the anime world at the event, so be sure to stop by if you’re in the area!

Even just looking around the event is always a load of fun!
There will also be new figures on display!

This photo is of Deep Sea Girl Miku, which we first saw back at WonFes! She’s back again after a couple of small changes! Nendoroid Kobato Hasegawa will also be on display at the event!!

There aren’t too many figures on display, but there will also be a few brand new figures debuting at the event too!!
Also, it’s that time of the year for the cherry blossom photo festival!

As always, I’m collecting photos of everyone’s favorite figures surrounded by cherry blossoms! If you go out to view the cherry blossoms this year, be sure to take a figure and a camera with you!!

But make sure you don’t pluck any blossoms off the trees! Keep nature in mind when taking the photos!

You can send your photos through to the following address:

These were some blossoms I saw on my way to the Big Sight – I even got a birdie in the photo too!! I’m so glad I happened to have my camera with me!!

But anyway, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!! (・∀・)ノ゛
