Rumba, rumba, rumba, rumba, rumba! ♪

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’m still half asleep due to the long weekend, but even so I was happy to take a look at these two lovely Nendoroid which will be shipping out from GSC on the 24th September!

Nendoroid Nozomu Itoshiki 1.5 and
Nendoroid Nozomu Itoshiki 1.5:
Kouji Kumeta Color Ver.!

He’s finally back again ヽ(・ω・´(`;ω;´)ノ`・ω・)ノ-!!

Nendoroid Zetsubou-sensei came 4th on the rerelease polls during the GSC 10th anniversary, and instead of a simple rerelease, he got a little remake with a complete new sculpt and alternate color version! (`・ω・´)

The ‘1.5’ in title isn’t just for show! The Nendoroid really has been upgraded with all sorts of improvements including overall balance changes and better neck joints. He’s cuter and more posable than ever before!

Plus as I mentioned before there is a completely alternate color version – colors decided on by the original author of the manga, Kouji Kumeta! ヘ(゚∀゚*)ノ

He has a lighter skin tone and a more monotone look – rather stylish if you ask me! Not only is his hair and clothes a different color, but the small accessories are also rather different!! (*´Д`)

Have a look! Even the smaller details like the metal parts on the bag have all been changed from silver to gold on the Kouji Kumeta version! It’s so nice to see little details like this! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

They both also come with an attendance register!

“I’m in despair! I’m in despair as I can’t find the register!”
“H-Here it is…”

Which allows for interesting poses like this one! (´∀`*)ウフフ

Every time I see Zetsubou-sensei I wish I could push his glasses up. ^^;

Oh, and the scarf can be removed and even swapped out between versions! ☆

This is how they look with swapped scarves! It’s actually quite fun to exchange parts between the two and see how they look! ♪

Let’s try swapping out his hakama as well!!!

Whilst I do think they look best with their own parts, it’s still a lot of fun to try create your very own Zetsubou-sensei by swapping out parts between the two versions! Did you notice I swapped their bags out too? ☆

It’s also a rather unique outfit as far as Nendoroids go, so let’s see how it looks on some other characters!

– KAITO & Kagamine Len: Append –

– Aichi Sendou & Toshiki Kai –

It’s so different to their normal outfits, giving them a nice, refreshing appearance! ε=(。・д・。)

You can also try out the despairing expression on some other characters… it’ll suit some more than others though!

– Kirito –

Haha, I think I’m having too much fun here… (´・ω・`)
I kind of wish I had a girl’s hakama to create a Taisho era couple out of Kiriro and Asuna!!

Perhaps the most important part to this Nendo, the hanging rope, is included with both versions! (ΦωΦ)

As soon as you think, “It’s time to hang Zetsubou-sensei!”, you first need to remove the hair part of his head…

Then look in the box and locate this special hair part with a hole in it!

Place the end of the rope with a circle around the neck joint, and then feed it through the hair parts as you see below!

The way to do this is also written in the handling instructions, so take a look through them too if you find yourself a little bit lost! Now simply reattach the hair parts and hang the rope from whatever you please!

Just so we’re clear, this is just to stretch out his height!
I would never really hang Zetsubou-sensei!!

Both released at the same time and great fun to swap parts between:
Nendoroid Nozomu Itoshiki 1.5 and
Nendoroid Nozomu Itoshiki 1.5:
Kouji Kumeta Color Ver.!

They’ll be shipping out from GSC on the 24th September!!
