Nendoroid Nankyoku Sakura Review (Penguin Musume Heart)

Haven’t done a proper full Figure Review for a while, so here goes one for Nendoroid Nankyoku Sakura from GoodSmile Company ^_^

IMG_0785

Sakura is from the Anime Series Penguin Musume Heart. I really didn’t think much of this series at first, it was more a download because I was bored and had nothing else to do at the time. I’m glad I did though, it was a gem ^_^. I love comedies that are just so stupid, it’s funny ^_^;;. I’ll go over the first few minutes of the opener to give you an idea of what kind of anime this is…

The series starts with an otaku in a dark room watching anime. An imouto character promptly scolds the otaku and advises her that she will be late too school. Not only that but delivers this evil line, “Sebastion, please dispose of anything that is related to anime.”

Nooooooooo! Sebastion don’t do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cut to school. Pink-haired Tsundere Etorofu-san is nominated to be Class President by her (Yandere?) friend Nene-san. Etorofu-san is less than enthused by the idea.

Suddenly!

(They seem to love Camel-toes in this Animeo_O;;)

A girl wearing strange “attire” shows up to class!

snapshot20090927124004

That would be my reaction too ^_^

snapshot20090927124009

The girl promptly realises she is still in her pyjamas. (Nekomimi and Sukumizu count as pyjamas? LOL)

snapshot20090927124039

The girl is introduced as a new student, Nankyoku Sakura (too bad she gets changed into something more normal ^_^;;)

Maybe Etorofu-san is disappointed as well…

snapshot20090927124144

Sakura reveals herself as an otaku who loves to cosplay characters in anime ^_^

snapshot20090927124159

Etorofu-san is bemoaning that she just doesn’t understand otaku… when Sakura spies her and immediately declares her as “Takanoko-chan!”

snapshot20090927124222

Sakura explains who Takenoko-chan is. Basically a loli heroine with one of the most ridiculous costumes I have ever seen…

snapshot20090927124254

Etorofu-san looks exactly like her!!! Well, maybe only the eyebrows! ^_^;;

snapshot20090927124351

Apparently in the Takenoko-chan anime’s end, she is eaten by an old man. Innuendo much? LOL

snapshot20090927124451

But it’s OK because Takenoko-chan returns in Takenoko-shan R!

snapshot20090927124514

Sakura finds out about the vote to become Class President. She promptly decides that she wants to be Class President so that she can force Etorofu-san into cosplaying as Takenoko-chan LOL

snapshot20090927124553

Sakura decides her intentions by quickly transforming …

snapshot20090927124556

Woops! Wrong Costume! LOL Yes, despite this being a comedy, they repeatedly show Sakura in her birthday suit…

snapshot20090927124600

She sure did pull the wrong thing…

snapshot20090927124606

Anyways! If you haven’t seen this anime yet, I do recommend it. Especially if you like my brand of humour (Otherwise you wouldn’t be here on my site, yes? ^_^). I hope that teaser was enough to convince you to download and watch it. It gets a lot more crazy and funnier than this, I might add…

But back to the review! Although I’m not a so much a fan of Nendoroids, than Figmas, I usually get them when the urge to buy strikes, and especially if it’s a character I like

IMG_0779

Sakura is definitely one of my favourite characters. I do like air-headed, bubbly funny bishoujos ^_^

IMG_0780

I’m probably bi-polar in the fact I like comedy so much, but also like dark depressing stuff… lately I’ve been writing comedy bubbly stuff, it’s about time I returned to my darker roots…

IMG_0781

Sakura goes all out on the fetish stuff. She would be the ideal otaku girlfriend imo ^_^;;

IMG_0782

Her design is pretty awesome. Schoolgirl, crazy, ahoge, nekomimi hair, massive chest, frequently goes nude for no reason at all, indestrucible (she’s frequently the target of violence from Etorofu-sans awesome punches, but is none the worse for wear)

IMG_0783

Definitely a winner of a character.

IMG_0784

I forgot to take rear shots, but Sakura’s tail of her hair is articulated ^_^

IMG_0787

Sakura’s other face. Might be my favourite face…

IMG_0788

Definitely a contender for Nendoroid funniest face

IMG_0789

For some reason, they also included her miner hat and pick from the opener mining sequence. The hat is AWESOME and fits many other Nendoroids

IMG_0790

The mining sequence is prettty damn random. But that’s what I like about this anime. They’re not afraid to be stupid

IMG_0791

Removable Ahoge is a plus. At least it won’t be easy to break this way when transporting her around. Although the main reason you can remove it so you can put her helmet on

IMG_0792

Angry face. You know I can’t remember when Sakura actually became angry in the anime ^_^;;

IMG_0793

She actually looks scary! Kowai!

IMG_0794

Now for more kawaii shots with the damn awesome hat

IMG_0795

Hat is win

IMG_0796

But hat with V-sign is even more WIN

IMG_0797

And now time for what you’ve all been waiting for. Time for the “Ace” Part of this review!

I wonder… am I the only one sick enough to do Nendoroid Yuri? If not, I demand pix LOL!

ANYWAYS… in conclusion Sakura-chan is so kyutto that even the lovely Yoko cannot resist her. Sakura gets a solid 9 out of 10 from me…

IMG_0800

This might be my last full Figure Review in a while … like I said in an earlier post, I’ll have a forced leave of absence next week because I’m off to the Philippine! However there still might be a few posts before I leave, depending if I pack in time… for now Ja Matta! ~Ace
