Oh cool, another Nendoroid. This time we have the Zetsubou Sensei! Seems like a lot of ppl like the anime, but does anybody read the manga? I did, but I didn’t really understand it. Since most of their joke are so related to the Japanese culture so I dropped it at around Vol.10 or so. =( Maybe I should try to watch the anime.

——Description from Manufacturer——

I’m in despair! I’m in despair over this overly cute appearance!

From “Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei” comes a Nendoroid of the Despair Teacher himself, Nozomu Itoshiki! He’s the super negative teacher that turns his back on anything he can… but he wasn’t able to turn his back on this cute Nendoroid version of himself.

He comes along wearing his characteristic Japanese style clothes, and his well-known muffler and bag are included. Both his “Despair Face” and his “Impatient Face” are included as two of the ideal expressions to complete his personality. Also, the symbolic rope to hang the poor teacher is also included… it might just increase the size of your figure display…
