Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

The new graduates that joined us this year are currently moving between the different sections in the company as a part of their training! I remember doing the same thing when I first joined…

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Nendoroid Aoba Suzukaze!

From the anime series scheduled to air in July 2016, ‘NEW GAME!’ (based on the manga by Shoutarou Tokunou serialized in Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Carat) comes a Nendoroid of game developer Eagle Jump’s newest employee – Aoba Suzukaze! She comes with three face plates including a smiling face, an enthusiastic face as well as a rather upset whining face with tears and all!

The Nendoroid comes with parts to recreate various different poses, and also includes a variety of optional parts including a coffee cup, employee ID card, game-pad, speech balloon and even an alternate lower body part that allows you to display her sitting! Enjoy the struggles of the hard-working Aoba by your side in Nendoroid form!

“I’m Aoba Suzukaze! I look forward to working with you!”

From the anime series starting this Summer about a young working girl who starts her first job at a game company, ‘NEW GAME!’ comes a figure of the main character herself –Aoba Suzukaze!

As with most newcomers to the working world she is wearing a simple navy blue suit and her cute light purple twin-tails have been tied up with little flower accessories! Her expression looks so innocent and filled with curiosity and even her rather characteristic slippers have been transformed into Nendoroid size! (●´ω`●)

The twin-tails are also fitted with joints to give some different nuances to poses!☆

△ Even the underside of her shoes clearly look lie slippers! ♪

Along with the bright and cheerful expression above, she also comes with this enthusiastic expression that shows she is ready to try her best at the new job!!

Ooooooooohhhh!! (´□`。)

She also comes with a speech balloon part to recreate the panel from the original manga that this expression is based on! The panel reads ‘I’m going to try my very best today!’, and comes with it’s own special stand to display beside her! ♥︎

You can also use this expression with the included coffee cup

It looks like she is blowing on the coffee to cool it down! (✿´ ꒳ ` )

A little bit off topic, but the plastic insert cup she is using has always reminds me of the first time I started working in a company as well! I never really saw these kind of cups during my student years but they often seem to come out in company meetings! If you have similar cups in your offices you can enjoy a coffee break together with Aoba!! ★

Things like this coffee cup, the speech bubble and even this cheerful face make me want to put her on display next to my work desk right now! I want the inspiration! I’ll do my very best together with Aoba-chan!!

Anyway, let’s move onto her third expression which is when she keeps trying to do her very best but things just don’t go her way… (/ω\)

A whining expression!

The wobbly looking mouth, tears in her eyes and those red cheeks show that she has had more than enough! You can see she has also removed the employee ID badge and thrown it down at her feet to show how she is feeling even more!!

However, the reason Aoba decided to join a company with all this stress is because she wanted to be a character designer for a game ever since she was a little girl! Which is why another part that just had to be included with her is this game pad!

Plus she also comes with sitting parts! ♪

I can’t be the only one that thinks girls look cute when sitting in work suits! As you can see her slippers can also be removed to reveal her cute little feet, which have actually been sculpted with such adorable little curves and balance! They really are so cute!! (੭ु ›ω‹ )੭ु⁾⁾♡

△ Close-up! I could look at these cute little feet for ages!

You can make use of the expressions to create a little story of her playing some games as well…
First she is enthusiastically playing…

But then…

It didn’t turn out how she hoped!

You can recreate all sorts of original situations with the Nendoroid! Be sure to enjoy Aoba in all sorts of different ways once she joins your collection!

Add Eagle Jump’s newest employee to your collection!
