Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

My favorite flavour of Garigari-kun ice cream is pear! I personally thought the corn potage flavour was okay, but I think stew flavour was taking things a little too far! Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Yu Nishinoya!

From the volleyball manga series with two anime seasons, ‘Haikyu!!’ comes a Nendoroid of the Karasuno High School volleyball clubs’ libero known as “Karasuno’s Guardian Deity” – Yu Nishinoya! He comes with three different expressions including a cheerful smile, a serious expression to display him concentrating on the match as well as a carefree grinning expression.

The Nendoroid is able to take various receiving poses and also comes with a volleyball and special base made in the image of a volleyball court. A sports towel and as well as alternate hair parts with his hair down are also included! Enjoy the reliable ‘Noya-san’ in your collection!

“I’ve got your back!”

“Karasuno’s Guardian Deity” the 2nd year libero of Karasuno High School’s volleyball club – Yu Nishinoya is joining the Nendoroids! A small body with unstoppable  passion hidden inside! 

Noya-san is easily the mood setter of the team, and that smile on his face shows why! The highlighted section of his hair, unique hairstyle, those short yet energetic eye brows and his slightly cat-like eyes have all been captured perfectly in Nendoroid size! ♪

Even from the back his hair is nice and pointy!

△ The Nendoroid stand is rectangular and make to look like a court! (。・ω・)ノ゙

The first thing I wanted to do was display him together with his senpai!!

Even as Nendoroids their heights have been considered making Noya-san slightly shorter, which kind of makes it look like he is looking up to Kageyama!! Noya-san is planned to be about the same size as Hinata!

Anyway, while the smile suits his playful and innocent personality rather nicely, he definitely needs something else to display him while playing a match! Which is why this serious expression is included!! (●´ω`●)

An expression with his tongue out to one side in concentration as he looks ahead for the incoming ball!! You can even make good use of the stand to pose him diving for the ball like so!!

Just 2cm between the floor and the ball!! Only a real ace could manage to get the ball with such limited space!!! Just remember some of the amazing scenes from the series almost brings a tear to my eye!! ˚‧º·(˚ ˃̣̣̥⌓˂̣̣̥ )‧º·˚

I love the main storyline of them working as a team against the other schools, but the episodes that focus on each character as they build into a team… those episodes at the very beginning have always been my favorite!! After playing this Nendoroid I feel like rewatching the anime and rereading the manga… again! On the 16th December 2015 the Blu-ray & DVD of the Movie’s 2nd Part is going on sale, so perhaps I’ll finish off the year with a rewatch of the movie!

Anyway, let’s move on to his third and final expression…

A grinning expression!☆

Such a carefree smile!! (´□`。)

Just looking at his natural smile brings a smile to my face as well!! The way he is pointing at himself with his little thumb just makes the pose all the more better! Noya-san really suits the Nendoroid design so very well!! ♪

I’ve introduced his three different expressions now, but he actually comes with another very important part!! A special part that allows you to display him as he looked during the training camp…

Alternate parts to display his hair down! 

I never thought this rare sight would make it into the Nendoroid!!

I love his standard hairstyle, but the gap between the simpleness of this hair to his normal hair just makes it all the more of an impressive sight! (/ω\)

He also comes with a towel to drape over his shoulders so you can really display him as if he has just come out of the shower with his hair down!! The sight was such a huge change at first that you could almost  mistake him for a child, but once you get used to it he actually looks rather cute! It’s a nice fresh look for him!! <○><○>

△ Recreate the famous scene with Hinata! ♪
