Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

My best food to have with rice is grilled cod roe! Whenever I buy an onigiri I always pick the one with grilled cod roe in it!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at a character who had her birthday yesterday!

Nendoroid Koizumi Hanayo! ♥︎

From the popular anime series ‘LoveLive!’ comes a Nendoroid of the normally calm and quiet character who becomes very enthusiastic about idols and white rice – Koizumi Hanayo! She has been sculpted wearing her outfit used in the song ‘Bokura wa Ima no Naka de’ and comes with both a smiling expression as well as a distressed expression to recreate her ‘someone help me~!’ line!

Koizumi also comes with all sorts of arm and leg parts to pose her in various scenes – from dancing on stage to suffering from stage fright!! Be sure to display her together with the previously announced and other upcoming members of μ’s! ♪

Kyahooooooooo! (*´Д`)=з

One of Otonokizaka Academy’s 1st year students who has always admired idols! Koizumi Hanayo is joining the Nendoroid series!! Just like all the previous characters, she is also sculpted wearing her outfit used in the song ‘Bokura wa Ima no Naka de’ and she also comes with special arm parts to recreate certain dance moves from the song!

The opening theme just starts playing through my mind when I look at her!

She is the 6th member of μ’s to join the Nendoroids! 

The others, which have already been announced, are…

♡ Nendoroid Nico Yazawa (Released in November 2014)
♥︎  Nendoroid Honoka Kosaka (Released in December 2014)
♡ Nendoroid Kotori Minami (Shipping out from GSC on the 25th January)
♥︎  Nendoroid Eli Ayase (Releasing in March 2015)
♡ Nendoroid Rin Hoshizora (Releasing in April 2015)

Now there are only three left!
This onethis one and this one!

They’re all in the works, so the collection will be complete soon! ♪

Anyway, let’s get back to Kayochin!
This is how she looks from the back! ★

A frilly mini-skirt really is the perfect outfit for an idol! 

There are even more frills at the hem of her blouse as well – everything has been faithfully shrunk into Nendoroid size! (゚∀゚*)ノ

The star on her outfit is the same as Rin-chan’s, as the two of them have been friends even before they came to Otonokizaka Academy so they needed something to match up!

The fact that you can peek at her belly button is also lovely!!

Another thing to note is that her hair accessories also match up with Rin-chan! Kotori-chan was obviously keeping in mind just how close these two were while she designed their outfits!

It can be a lot of fun to find the matching points between their costumes! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

(・∀・) “Don’t forget about her extra expression!”

We’re joined by Kayochin’s planner, Hamako!

(・∀・) “To keep the price down a little on a large collection, the LoveLive Nendoroids only come with two expressions… which makes it so hard to decide on which one to use! However… after considering my options I decided this has to be the one!”

The expression Hamako decided on was…

A distressed expression!

Oooooooooooooohhhhh!! (੭ु ›ω‹ )੭ु⁾⁾♡

She’s so adorable!! 

I can just hear her voice saying “someone help me~!!” ♪

The tearing up eyes add to the effect so nicely! I just want to hug her! 

(・∀・) “Once the expression got to this point I knew we had picked the right one! Also note that she comes with both left and right bent legs, allowing you to pose her toes turned inward!”

My first instinct is to want to jump in and help her… but my second is quite the opposite! The expression makes me want to tease her too! 

Here’s a photo capturing that moment! ★

Kayochin just can’t reach the delicious white rice!

These rice parts are included with Nendoroid Akagi!
*Please note that they are not included with Nendoroid Koizumi Hanayo!

The distressed expression can also make a nice embarrassed expression depending on the posing around it!

(・∀・) “Simply arrange the situation however you prefer! ♪”

I want to arrange for her to have Rin-chan squeezing her cheeks!!

Compare the above photo to the one below – you really get two completely different sides of Kayochin to enjoy! ♡

(・∀・) “Hanayo’s smile is probably the most gentle and relaxing of all the μ’s members!”

The photo above uses the smiling expression but really makes it look like she is singing too Perfect to recreate the anime opening! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ

(・∀・) “The LoveLive Nendoroid series is simple yet effective! It still allows for very cute and fun poses for each character while not going too overboard on price! I hope fans collect all the members!”

The gentle idol that goes great with white rice! ♪

Nendoroid Koizumi Hanayo!

She’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow, the 20th January! ♪

As with all the previous LoveLive Nendoroids, orders from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP will include some special bonuses! Hanayo comes with a striped Nendoroid base as well as a Nendoroid base extention parts! ♡
