I miss Nagi so much! Since the anime was ended and the manga was forced to keep on hold coz of the “Second-Hand Nagi” incident, Nagi seems like disappeared from the Otaku world.

Don’t know about the incident? Well, it’s about the latest manga chapter 36 (November 2008) told that Nagi had a boyfriend before and suggested she might not be a virgin. And to make things worst, in the Anime episode 11, there is a scene that Nagi was pregnant in her flash back. Since then all the Otaku were so mad. By showing their anger, they torn apart all the Kannagi manga and posted it on 2ch. And some of them even threaten to kill (or something like that) the manga author Takenashi Eri.

After that, seems like Takenashi Eri disappeared and the manga Kannagi was stopped. In January 2009, the manga editor said Takenashi Eri had health problem and underwent surgery in December 2008 and he is recovering now. But we never hear anything about him since then. I wonder when will the Kannagi manga restart again. =/

Ok, back to this figure. Not much to say, just another great Nendoroid by GSC. However it’s not just me, there is only one thing that many people are disappointed about, she doesn’t comes with the silly face!! =(


manga Ch.36

——Description from Manufacturer——

The beautiful earth goddess.

From the popular anime “Kannagi” comes a nendoroid of the self-proclaimed goddess, Nagi – the guardian deity that was brought into the world through a sculpture carved from the sacred tree.

Everything from her unique costume and hairstyle have all been converted into nendoroid form, but kept true to their originals. She has various expressions that you can use to recreate all sorts of scenes with, and the magical baton she uses to cleanse the impurities of the world is also included.
