No matter how hard I swing when playing badminton, the birdie always seems to fly right over my racket…

Today I’ll be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Ayano Hanesaki

From the anime “Hanebado!” comes a Nendoroid of Ayano Hanesaki in her uniform! She comes with three face plates including her standard expression, her hard-to-read ruthless expression as well as a crying expression.

For optional parts, she comes with a shuttlecock and effect parts to recreate her cut smash! The ambidextrous Ayano can be posed with her racket in either hand making for a wide range of possible poses to reenact from the show. Be sure to add her to your collection!

“I… like badminton too.”

The first year Kitakomachi High School student that formerly avoided Badminton but started to play again, Ayano Hanesaki has been transformed into a Nendoroid in her uniform!

Her characteristic large pink ribbon and detailed racket have been recreated in Nendoroid size!

On her back you can clearly see the characters for “Kitakomachi” written out. These lovely uniforms even made Nagisa blush upon first seeing them!

Speaking of badminton, the first thing is the serve! She comes included with a shuttlecock as an optional part! A special right hand part is included to pose her holding it!

▲Ayano’s left-handed short serve!

You can see her wristband on her left arm as well! That makes an appearance in the 13th chapter of the manga, in the 3rd volume.

And then… the game begins! Ayano’s usually cute standard expression totally changes. When Ayano has her hands on a racket, her more cruel ruthless expression comes out.

Yes, her somewhat scary ruthless expression is included, from when she shows her true feelings on the court.

An optional effect part of her cut smash is included as well! Enjoy recreating intense scenes from the show!

▲It really is curving!

Special parts are included to show Ayano holding the racket in her right hand as well! Ayano really surprised everyone watching with her ambidextrousness.

Next, let’s take a look at her final face plate.
After the match, without thinking she showed everyone her crying expression.

Whether in the anime or the manga, so many emotions are given off with this expression. Holding back tears to the point they’re spilling out…

This expression really shows all of Ayano’s true feelings. I’m starting to tear up myself just looking at her!
