Sping! The season of cherry blossoms!
Today we’ll be taking a look at a figure who knows Spring better than anyone!
…and she will be going on sale very soon!
Being released by Digiturbo, it’s…
A Nendoroid of the ‘goddess of Spring’ that helps out when telling the weather on NHK TV’s ‘Newswatch 9′, as well as a character in NHK Online’s 4-panel web comic, “Haru-chan’s Weather Trivia’!
Simply put – she is a moe personification of Spring!
This is how the packaging looks!
She comes with some interesting looking expressions as well as a ton of optional parts to play with! A carp streamer the same size as Haru-chan herself is even included… and some extra lower body parts that allow her to sit down… there is a load of fun to be had with this Nendoroid! 😀
This is how she looks from the back!
Her blouse is fluttering in the wind… the perfect example of Spring! She makes use of one of the arm-type stands which stand her up very nice and securely!
By the way… this is the first publicly displayed image of the back of the carp streamer. 😛
Let’s move onto the optional parts!
Bent right arm, bent legs and a cherry blossom wand!
An ideal pose for the Spring season!
I love it when I have a sample figure rather than the master figure… I can pose it without worrying so much! It’s so much more fun!
An adorable worried face!
Spring is well known for it’s thunderstorms in Japan, and this is the same expression that Haru-chan would have when reporting a Spring thunderstorm! Isn’t she just adorable!?
She also comes with ruffled hair and a rain wand!
During the thunderstorms the wind blows really hard and causes your hair to end up like this… the expression really suits the hair!
The carp streamer, and her… pet?
This is the little white kitty wanders around in Haru-chan’s room! Even his little tail is posable! Apparently the official name in of the pet actually includes the question mark… so it’s name is in fact ‘Pet?’.
You can also see she has ‘sitting parts’ and a ‘newspaper sword’!
These parts let you pose Haru-chan like this, riding the carp steamer valiantly!
The carp steamer actually caused quite a lot of trouble while being made… I think there was even some crying involved with the production team. Apparently each of the scales needed to be painted on one-by-one… I hope you survived, factory workers!
She also has a masked face!
This of course makes it look like poor Haru-chan has caught a cold…
Plus it looks hilarious on other characters!
Aaah, he’s beautiful…

It suits him too well!! xD
Nendoroid Date Masamune has been on sale since 04/07!
KAITO has caught a cold….!
By the way, he is also making use of Nendoroid Kurisu Makise: White Coat ver.‘s upper body part. This is actually Seki-sama’s KAITO Nendoroid… I stole it from her desk. 😛
The expression really suits pretty much any other Nendoroid, so be sure to try it out on some of your favorites!
Nendoroid Number 146!
