Tsukki is carrying a rather interesting box… Σ(゚Д゚;)
The label reads: “Contains Despair”.

It’s like some kind of Pandora’s Box that should never be opened!

But wait… if Tsukki from the manufacturing team is holding the box… that must mean that it’s about to be sent off to China! Let me have some of the despair before it’s sent away!! Please!! (`・ω・´)キリッ
From (Zoku) Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei:
Nendoroid Nozumu Itoshiki 1.5 &
Nendoroid Nozomu Itoshiki 1.5: Kouji Kumeta Color Ver.!

Nendoroid Nozomu Itoshiki is being rereleased in the new Nendoroid format introduced from No.300! The super negative teacher with a pessimistic view on everything is back once again, looking just as cute as ever in Nendoroid size!

Also, a special version featuring colors selected by the original manga’s author, Kouji Kumeta, is being released as ‘Nendoroid Nozumu Itoshiki 1.5: Kouji Kumeta Color Ver.’!

Kouji Kumeta-sensei’s Colors!! (*゚∀゚)=3

Zetsubou-sensei looks so amazing in monochrome colors!

As I’m sure many of you know, Zetsubou-sensei was the 4th most requested rerelease product during the GSC 10th Anniversary Rerelease Poll! I know it’s been awhile, but the rerelease is now upon us! Along with a brand new color to boot!! Yay! ヽ(゚∀゚)

I’ll never forget back in March 2009, when I took the original Nendoroid Zetsubou-sensei with me to Matsudo Shrine and posed him hanging from one of the cherry blossom trees. I can hardly believe that was four years ago! The ancient blog article can still be found here for those who are interested!

There was even a video! I went way too far with this one! :P


Here are the blog articles (Japanese only!):
This is how they look from the back!

Even though this is a rerelease, there have been a few changes for better balance with more recent Nendoroids – the head has been made a little smaller and the neck makes use of the new Nendoroid joints! So it’s not really a rerelease, it’s half a new release! :P

If you compare it directly to the previous version, you can actually see there are quite a few differences in overall balance! (・ω・)ノ

Nendoroid Nozomu Itoshiki:
His bag is included as an optional part!

The optional parts are exactly the same as the previously released version! The same goes for the Kouji Kumeta Color Ver. except for the fact that the colors have been changed!!

But just the few changes that have been made to his head part make him seem a whole lot more amazing!! I can’t help but want to hold him close whenever I see him! (*゜∀゜)=3
He comes with an impatient expression!

It’s a bit of a comical expression, but it suits him so well! I still remember back with the first release when everyone was trying to decide which expressions to include with the Nendoroid!

Oh, and his scarf can be removed for whenever it gets too hot! An attendance register is also included and can be held under his arm like the left, or placed on the floor as on the right! Pick whichever pose you prefer! (=゜ω゜)ノ
“I’m in despair!!”

“I’m in despair that I’m wearing the wrong scarf!”

Being able to remove parts also means that you can trade parts between the two! You should also be able to use the original Nendoroid Zetsubou-sensei, but the amount of combinations may be more limited…

The despairing expression and arms are both included! ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ

Even in Nendoroid size the tiny bent fingers on those hands are incredible!!
You can also hang them!

Although this probably isn’t a photo that should be put on the blog… you can once again display Zetsubou-sensei being hanged!! I hope the photo doesn’t have to be removed from the blog… (‘A`)

The rope for hanging is included with both versions of the Nendoroid – you just place the head inside it, and also attach the special hair parts to complete the pose! I must say this photo has a strangely surreal feel to it…
Bonus! Switched heads! (=゚∀゚)ノ

I- I think I’ve discovered something amazing here!! The normal head on the Kouji Kumeta Color Ver. (on the right) looks amazing!

It’s kind of like having a Nendoroid of the manga version! I think fans of both the anime and manga are best getting both versions for combinations like this! I know I’ll be getting both of them!! I can’t wait!! 。・゚・(ノ∀`)・゚・。
