Hello everyone!

How long has it been since school uniforms were considered cosplay? The other day I was at a train station and I saw a sign near the escalator that said “Take care if you’re wearing a skirt”. But I don’t think the main reason for that is having people worry about seeing under their skirt, but instead to make girls think that maybe they should have their skirts a bit longer!

When I was in highschool I admit I had a fairly short skirt, but I think skirt length is more than just a single thing, and more about finding the right ratio between sock length, how much leg is showing and skirt length!

But today I want to point out something even more important about skirts! That’s how to sit with them! You can’t just sit straight down, you need to take both hands like do this!

If you just sit straight down with uniform skirts then the pleats will all get messed up! But this way you can keep everything neat and straight! Whenever you ride in a car you also need to make sure to do this else you can expect the local old lady to let you know (in a loud voice) that your panties are showing…

Along with that I’ve also been told that I’ve left my lights on by her at least seven times… I’m terrible at remembering things like that. How did this end up as a talk about lights on cars….

Phew…! ( ゚д゚)

The heat has caused be to prattle on way too much!

Today’s temperature is 37 degrees celsius which will tire anyone out!!
But we’ve just got to get through it!!

Anyway, today I’ll be taking a look at a collection of cute sitting girls! (`・ω・´)

Nendroid Petite: Photo Kano!

*The stage seen in these images is not included.

From the game that became a popular anime series ‘Photo Kano’ comes a set of Nendoroid Petites of the girls that become models for the main character’s photos! The set includes seven different characters including Haruka Niimi, Aki Muroto, Mai Sakura, Hikari Sanehara, Nonoka Masaki, Rina Yunoki and Tomoe Misumi!

They are all sculpted in the lovely poses from the anime’s key visual, each sitting atop a desk while posing for the camera! There is also one secret character, meaning if you want to get a photo of them altogether you’ll need to collect all eight!

Uniforms, swimsuits or at the festival…

The girls who looked good in all sorts of outfits and are now here to join the Nendoroid Petite series!

They’re all posed in sitting poses for a bit of a change!

For those of you who think they recognise this scene…
You probably do! ヽ(・ω・´(`・ω・´)ノ`・ω・)ノ─!!!

This is the pose from the key visual used for the anime version! ☆

You can see the image over at the Photo Kano Official Website! Plus each of the figures come with a special little desk-shaped stand to sit on! Let’s take a closer look at each of them!♪

Number 1: Haruka Niimi!

The main characters childhood friend popular all over the school! Her elegant but still sexy body is in a twisted pose that looks lovely!

Number 2: Aki Muroto!

“Perfect time for a photo!” <●><●> (I can’t lose to Maeda-kun’s photos!)

You can now hold this perfect student council president in your very own hands! Holding her glasses with a slight blush on her face… it’s so cute!! Glasses really are they ultimate moe item!

Number 3: Mai Sakura!

The angel of gymnastics is sitting on my desk- (゚∀゚)!!!

She’s one of the younger characters who is known for her swimsuit and leotard poses! I think of all the poses in the set this one is my favorite! From the back you can peek into her skirt so easily… but you’ll have to wait till she’s released to see that! :P

Number 4: Hikari Sanehara!

The cute and cool character always making sarcastic comments! This Nendo captures her embarrassed smile which is quite a rare sight and the pose also shows off her other assets rather well…! I also love the way she’s nervously gripping onto her skirt!

(・∀・) “I can’t say it in too loud a voice, but some of the characters have amazing detail under those skirts!”

Ooh! Today I didn’t even need to summon anyone, he has arrived on his own accord! Oda-P!

But what do you mean… detail under the skirts…?

~Secret Talk Begins Here~

(・∀・) “I mean their panties are made to look just like the original character designs meant them to…”
Ooh! I see!
~End Secret Talk~

I guess all the Photo Kano fans will have to wait until they release to see exactly what Oda-P means! (・ω<)★

(They can be removed from the desk stands!)

Anyway, let’s move on…!

Number 5: Nonoka Masaki!

This reminds me of that scene from on the rooftop with the setting sun… Happy poses like this one really tug on my heart! The way she is just managing to hide her panties from this angle is also such a tease!

Number 6: Rina Yunoki!

The school idol! (*´Д`)=з Such lovely long hair!! She is also the only character that has knee high socks to leave you with some lovely thighs to enjoy!

Number 7: Tomoe Misumi!

I’m a big fan of shy girls! (」・ω・)」カモーン

Such an innocent and cute pose that suits her great! But sitting like that will mess up the pleats on your skirt!!

All that’s left is the secret character!

Let’s try find out from Oda-P who the 8th character is!
(・∀・) “The secret character? I’ll let you put a hint photo up on the blog!”

In good spirits with the summer holidays starting tomorrow, Oda-P gave permission to sneak a peak of her!

Here we go…! (゚A゚;)ゴクリ
