“Hey everyone! The rice is ready!♪”
Attention all Love Live! fans and collectors of Nendoroids alike, Good Smile Company will be releasing a brand new Nendoroid for the Love Live! series early next year. After their series of “Bokura wa Ima no Naka de” Nendoroids for the series Good Smile Company released a brand new line of Nendoroids for the series, this time the members of µ’s would be wearing their training outfits! The star this time Hanayo Koizumi, the loveable first year member of µ’s who has an adorable love for rice.
Hanayo’s Nendoroid comes with her dressed in the training outfit she uses during the practice sessions with µ’s. She will come with two different facial expressions. The first is a gentle smiling expression, complete with blushing. The other expression is her more serious expression, the one she’d make while cooking rice or perhaps even studying for exams, most likely for cooking rice though.
The Nendoroid will also come with other optional parts. Love Live! fans will be happy to know that Hanayo’s Nendoroid will come with a rice cooker and a rice scoop, so now you can have Hanayo openly showcase her great love for rice. She also comes with glasses so when you decide you want Hanayo to have a more studious look, just put on her glasses. The Nendoroid also comes with a special holding hands part, this part is intended to be used with the “Bokura wa Ima no Naka de” line of Nendoroids. Make sure to display Hanayo alongside the other members of µ’s so that she doesn’t get lonely! Pictures of the Nendoroid can be seen below.
If you pre-order directly from Good Smile Company’s online store you will receive an exclusive Special Nendoroid Background Sheet of a Sunset and a Special Nendoroid Stand. Sample pics of the two bonuses can be seen below.
The Hanayo, training outfit, Nendoroid was sculpted by Hideaki Ooya and Shichibee and stands at approximately 100 mm in height. The Nendoroid will cost ¥3,241 (about $26.91 before tax and shipping). You can pre-order the Hanayo Nendoroid from Good Smile Company’s website here. The Nendoroid is set to release in January 2016.
