It's been a little while since we last heard about Good Smile Company's Nendoroid figures for 5pb's science fiction visual novel turned anime Robotics;Notes. With the anime well underway, Mikatan's Blog updated with a preview finally of the robotics club chairman Akiho Senomiya.
Cuteness, you're going to get it which is immediately evident with Nendoroid Akiho's giant, open smile. The hairstyle is also cute with the symmetrical bangs on each side. The school uniform is what it is with a little lift to it to just slightly show off her stomach. The back is looking excellent for the hair and the little pouch is a nice touch. Various arms and leg parts are available to help recreate poses from the game including arms to place at her hips and legs bent at the knee. The two additional faces included are a determined face and a sweet smile. Accessories include a set of glasses (which only attach to the hand) to have her mimic a character from another anime and her Poke-com already attached to her hand. To complete the accessories, Nendoroid Akiho will also come with Tanegashi Machine 3 with poseable arms, legs, head, as well as its own stand. The one thing that worries me which isn't really shown is how that ponytail is managed for weight distribution. I'm still annoyed how my Nendoroid Luka can't keep her head forward because of the weight of her ponytail. Maybe Good Smile has fixed this little issue with Nendoroid Akiho.
Good Smile Company's Nendoroid Akiho is not the only one previewed at Mikatan's Blog. Akiho will also be joined by Nendoroid Frau Koujiro. We're only teased with a back shot of an unpainted prototype but at least we know she's coming. For now, we'll just have to settle with Akiho who will be available to pre-order on November 22, 2012.
