\”I’ll capture everyone’s hearts!”/

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

My heart has been shot by the arrow of Umi-chan, leaving me filled with a warm fuzzy feeling inside! She has certainly captured my heart!! Just look how cute she is! Today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Umi Sonoda!♥︎

From the popular anime series ‘LoveLive!’ comes a Nendoroid of the diligent and hard-working beauty, Umi Sonoda! She has been sculpted wearing her outfit used in the song ‘Bokura wa Ima no Naka de’ and comes with both a relaxed smiling expression and a blowing kiss expression!

She also comes with a large number of parts that allow you to recreate the dance moves from the opening theme of the first season! Be sure to display her together with the previously announced and other upcoming members of μ’s! ♪

Ooooooooooooooohhh!! (*´Д`)

The μ’s member with a family that did traditional Japanese dance is joining the Nendoroids with her long blue hair looking just as beautiful as ever! ☆

Just looking at the Nendoroid makes me hear her confident yet polite voice playing through my head! Her eyes also look so very gentle – just looking at them makes me feel a little more at ease!

She is also the 7th μ’s member to join the Nendoroids!

☆ Nendoroid Nico Yazawa (Released November 2014)
★ Nendoroid Honoka Kosaka (Released December 2014)
☆ Nendoroid Kotori Minami (Released January 2015)
★ Nendoroid Eli Ayase (Release Date: March 2015)
☆ Nendoroid Rin Hoshizora  (Release Date: April 2015)
★ Nendoroid Hanayo Koizumi  (Release Date: May 2015)

That leaves just the calm and collected first year student and the rather spiritual third year student!

But anyway, let’s get back to Umi-chan’s review! ε=(。・д・。)

Even as a Nendoroid her neat and clean appearance is clear!

Not only is she adorable, there is also a definite elegance surrounding her!

From the sweet look of Nico-nii, the strong and confident look of Eli or the gentle aura about Hanayo… all the μ’s members have had their characteristics brought out really well by the Nendoroids…

… and Umi-chan is no exception! The Nendoroid is filled with Umi-chan charm! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

Let’s take a closer look at her outfit! ☆

She has a neck-tie, similar to Elicchi and Rin-chan! The pattern is rather different though – she has a blue striped tie with a jewel in the middle! It really brings out her ‘cool and cute’ charm! Great work on the design once again, Kotori-chan!

All the μ’s Nendoroids have such intricate details on the outfits! They also have a very idol-like feeling to them with all the frills on the blouse and pants! ♥︎

…and speaking of and idol-like feeling…

The famous ‘blow kiss’ pose can be faithfully recreated with this expression part! (●´ω`●)

Umi-chan may be a rather shy person off stage… but on stage she has some rather bold acts like this one!

I think the fact that she is normally such a serious character makes this kind of pose all the more lovable to fans!! ♪

(・∀・) “Ooh, let me try something!!”

We’re suddenly joined by the Nendoroid’s planner, Hamako

What do you mean ‘something’?!

(・∀・) “You’ll see!”


“Honki demo~♪


~~♪ “


I-I know this scene…!


(・∀・) “It’s the scene where the second years all appear together in the “Bokura wa Ima no Naka de” opening theme! The second year students are finally all together!”

The μ’s Nendoroids have been released in order of their birthdays since November! Who would have thought that the first group to be completed by this order would be Honoka-chan’s 2nd years!! (´□`。)

(・∀・) “The Nendoroid series started off with wanting to bring all the members as soon as possible to everyone… having completed the second year members, it’s kind of a milestone that I’m glad to have reached! There are only two characters left to go now… but personally I’m hoping to bring you even more of the μ’s members in the future!”

Oooh! It seems we have heard the secret desires of Hamako! Perhaps we can hope for more μ’s even after the Nendoroids are done!

Anyway! As Hamako mentioned, all nine of the μ’s members are joining the Nendoroids… and while they are adorable by themselves, they really shine when you display them all together – particularly as the outfits all match together so well! The LoveLive! Nendoroids are also a little cheaper than most, making it a little easier on the wallet to collect all nine!  φ(.. )

(・∀・) “By the way, Umi-chan comes with bent left and right arms and bent legs allowing for various different poses!”

For example! Pose her gently brushing her hair back over her ears! (。・ω・)ノ゙ 

The bent left hand is actually meant for placing at her hips, but with a little imagination you can always use it for other poses like this!  ♪

(・∀・) “I hope fans will enjoy Umi-chan in their collections!”

The beautiful idol, all to yourself!

Nendoroid Umi Sonoda!

She will be up for preorder tomorrow!!  

As with all the previous LoveLive Nendoroids, she will also come with a bonus at the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP! The bonus is a Special Patterned Base and Small/Large Base Extension Parts! ♥︎

Umi-chan will come with the chequered pattern which was also included with Nendoroid Nico Yazawa, Nendoroid Kotori Minami and Nendoroid Rin Hoshizora!

△ The extension parts fold together to make a higher stand like this!

Be sure to keep the bonus in mind when preordering! (`・ω・´)ゞ

Next up, a quick notice!

Last weekend, the latest information about the third season of wooser’s hand-to-mouth life was revealed! The third season is called the ‘Phantasmagoric Arc’!

The third season is being directed by none other than Seiji Mizushima, the same man behind things famous series such as Fullmetal Alchemist and Mobile Suit Gundam 00! Plus each episode will be written by a different person – all of which are well-known for various different things and are sure to make the third season amazing! <○><○>

To think the staff would get even more impressive!!
Just how far is wooser set to go?! (´□`。)

Check the official site below for more information:

To celebrate the third season, these two items will also be going up for preorder tomorrow!

Nendoroid Rin & wooser: Light Ver.

Nendoroid Ren & Darth wooser: Light Ver.

These are similar to the previously released Nendoroid Rin & wooser + Mechawooser and Nendoroid Ren & Darth wooser, but the included items are slightly different! Just as the name suggests, they are a little lighter – in terms of optional parts, but more importantly also in terms of price!

Each will cost just ¥2,800!

More details will be up on the GSC site tomorrow, so be sure to take a look!
