Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I prefer pears to apples! The juicy sweetness and lovely biting texture make for such an irresistible fruit!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at the Nendoroid that went up for preorder together with Nendoroid Osomatsu Matsuno,

Nendoroid Karamatsu Matsuno!

From the popular anime series ‘Osomatsu-san’ comes a Nendoroid of the second son of the Matsuno family, Karamatsu! He comes with a smiling expression, an expression trying to act cool as well as a blank expression with a variety of different stickers for you to create your very own expression!

Optional parts include a hand mirror, sunglasses and a variety of different hand and leg parts to allow for all sorts of different poses! Be sure to display him with his other brothers who are planned to be released as Nendoroids!

“I am the second son born into the Matsuno family, Karamatsu Matsuno!”

The second brother always trying his best to be cool is also joining the Nendoroids! ♪

Those rather thick and posed eyebrows, rolled-up sleeves on his hoodie, one hand placed in his pocket and cute mouth with just the corners pointing up for a bit of a stuck-up smile! Everything that makes Karamatsu different to the other brothers has been preserved on the Nendoroid in lovely detail!! (/ω\)

He even comes with a hand mirror to quickly ensure he is looking like his normal cool self! The mirror actually makes use of a reflective material!

 △ He is researching which angle looks the coolest! So cute!!

You can see that his hoodie and jeans are quick similar to Osomatsu’s… but the jeans actually have a slightly different sculpt if you look close!

Can you tell the difference?!

Karamatsu makes use of ‘skinny’ type jeans, so they are sculpted to look slimmer when compared to Osomatsu! There is clearly a lot more slack around Osomatsu-san’s feet as well when compared with Karamatsu!

As I’m sure most of you already know, all six brothers are going to be joining the Nendoroids!٩(๑òωó๑)۶

Along with different expressions and accessories for each of them, the outfit changes will always be more than just color – with each Nendoroid altered to better fit the character’s original design! Be sure to look forward to the other four brothers coming soon!!

Anyway, let’s move onto his second expression!

“So… you’re finally here? My Karamatsu Girls.”

An expression perfect for Karamatsu trying to act cool! ♡

The expressions from Osomatsu-san are quite different to normal anime expressions, but their charm converts into the Nendoroid design really effectively!!

The balance of the expression is lovely!! Plus he also comes with another optional part that suits this expression nicely – sunglasses!

“The sun… is basking in my light!”

It’s amazing how much the atmosphere of the expression changes when you can no longer see the sparkling eyes!! ♪

Of course you can still see the sharp look of his eyebrows as he tries to make a cool expression behind the glasses… (*´Д`)=з

On the actual product the frame will have a clear plastic sheet that can be inserted in between the hair and expression parts to keep the glasses in place!

But the fact that you can remove the glasses also means the other brothers can also wear them!

Without the eyes showing on this expression, it’s quite hard to tell whether Osomatsu-san is enjoying himself or instead embarrassed! (●´ω`●)

Using all the included bent arm and accessory parts allows you to bring together all sorts of poses and situations that bring out his character perfectly!

△ Change expressions and create a little story!

Plus, just like Osomatsu-san, his third expression is a blank expression! ☆

The expression comes with stickers that allow you to choose which expression you want to use! ♪

△ Some should remind you of specific scenes from the series!

All the other brothers in the series will also make use of this blank expression together with stickers! Simply pick the expression that you want the most!! ♥︎

Add the cute second brother to your collection!
