I’m Akari Akaza, the main character of the show!
From the popular anime series ‘YuruYuri♪♪’ comes a Nendoroid of the kind and gentle Akari Akaza, who is always trying to get noticed as a main character.

Akari is wearing her Nanamori Middle School uniform and comes with a number of parts that help you recreate popular scenes from the show, such as the opening scene at the beginning of the first season, the rather embarrassing scene where Akari first introduces herself and even the kiss scene where something rather important is taken from her. Her hair buns can also be taken off, and together with the included effect parts you can recreate the ‘Hair Bazooka’ scene!

She is also scheduled for December release, with the usual price tag of 3500 Yen.

Prototype of Nendoroid Suenaga Mirai?

So far, Danny Choo has already teased us several times in regards of the Nendoroid version of his famous Culture Japan mascot Suenaga Mirai. We have seen the Nendoroid design, the Itasha, but not the Nendoroid itself.

Well, it looks like Nendoroid Suenaga Mirai has finally decided to meet Mr. Blurry Cam in order to produce this blurry photo of her prototype, as you can see in the pic above.

Whether the pic is legit or not, well, I guess we will not have to wait too long for clarification as Summer WonFes is coming on July 29 – that’s exactly next week! XD

What do you think, Nendonesian? ^^

UPDATE: It looks like the pic was initially tweeted by Danny Choo himeself.
