Wow, this Nendoroid Haru-chan is cute! I really want to get her but 3,619 yen is kinda expensive for me since I’m not really a Nendoroid collector. Well, I’ll wait until her price drop. =P

——Description from Manufacturer——

She’s coming to bring you a nice warm Spring!

From NHK General’s Newswatch 9 as well as NHK ONLINE’s popular online web comic Haru-chan’s Weather Trivia comes a Nendoroid of Haru-chan, the Spring Goddess herself!

Her long wavy hair and cherry blossom accessories are all shrunk down to Nendoroid size – even the kanji on her head reads ‘Haru’ or “Spring’ is of course included on the Nendoroid. Haru-chan also comes with three expressions to play with, including her standard smiling face, an agitated face for when the Spring thunderstorms come and even a masked face for when she catches a cold or is suffering from allergies.

She also comes with a rolled-up newspaper sword, her pet white cat that is hanging onto a carp banner that Haru-chan can ride on, and even her two magical staves – “Sakura”, which causes cherry blossoms to bloom, as well as “Ame yo Fure”, which makes it rain!

Let the warmth of Spring take over with Nendoroid Haru-chan!
