Kobato Nendoroid Review

Hi everyone! This will be my first blog and written nendoroid review! I hope you enjoy it. Feel free to check out my video version of this review as well at the end of this blog.

Now, let's start the review!

~*~*~The Anime~*~*~

http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z348/tkdbliss/14145ce7-e993-4992-b9bc-bfa5bbc95ec0_zpse50d6fc7.jpg

Kobato is from the anime Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, otherwise known as Haganai. This is one of my favorite animes with cute characters and a lot of funny moments. It starts with Kodaka, a transfer high school student who is entering a Japanese school for the first time but things do not start out well. He's late for class the first day and rushes in, leaving a bad impression as people think he is a delinquent with his blonde-ish hair (his mother was part English). With no friends he later meets Yozora a strange girl who is talking to an air friend. After encountering Kodaka she creates a neighbors club solely for people to meet friends and forces him to join. More students join the club, including Sena, the rich, blonde and large breasted beauty that every guy wants and who Yozora hates. The story grows from their and develops into a fun anime. Where does Kobato come in? She is Kodaka's younger sister and one of the youngest characters. She loves to cosplay as her favorite anime character (basically every day) and is over attached to her nii-san Kodaka. Her cuteness and Otaku like character is what really makes her one of my favorites.

~*~*~Kobato Nendoroid and poses~*~*~

Now, they have finally made a nendoroid of her! This is nendoroid #317 and was released earlier this year (2013). Let's take a closer look at the nendoroid itself! :D

http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z348/tkdbliss/39d7ff8e-b2e0-4f6b-8987-afd9f2eb9575_zps8cf7dd50.jpg

They did a great job on making the nendoroid look like Kobato. The eyes are painted beautifully. She comes with a variety of cute poses including the ones shown below. My personal favorite is her sitting pose.

~*~*~The Box~*~*~
Her box follows the new design that has been implemented since the Miku 2.0 nendoroid. I really enjoy the new box design and think it is a lot more cleaner and subtle looking than the old design. I already removed Kobato from her packaging.

There is a larger image of the nendoroid itself on the front of the newer boxes but it still has a window box feel with the large plastic covering to showcase the nendoroid inside.

The sides are pretty simple, but nicely designed. They just show the different poses that the nendoroid can be placed in.

The back of the newer boxes is also simpler than the older boxes, with smaller writing and larger images of the nendoroid.

Bottom

The top and bottom have similar coloring and stylization.

~*~*~Accesories~*~*~

Face Plates

http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z348/tkdbliss/6c819912-223b-49c6-a52d-e0c273900c90_zps4bea874b.jpg

I really love the expressions she came with. Along with her standard face plate, which is shown above on the left, she also comes with two additional face plates. The middle one shows her cute and happy face and the right one shows her pouty face, which goes great with her sitting pose.

Arm Accessories
She comes with a standard set of arms, but also a lot of different interchangeable arm accessories.

http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z348/tkdbliss/34705591-e855-4989-8229-371683499a2a_zps0cec3a7a.jpg

The first set of arm pieces is for Kobato's favorite pose. Ku Ku Ku >:3 as part of her cosplay from the anime she watches. The right arm has a piece-like sign and the left arm has the pointer finger and the middle figure pointing forward.

http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z348/tkdbliss/c1d17aa7-e2dd-4c05-a238-eee9bd81659e_zps35f7c08c.jpg

The next set of arm pieces is so she can hold her little Kodaka chibi accessory! I really love that they added this. It is really a cute touch to the nendoroid. Once put together on the nendoroid, it looks as if she is holding the Kodaka plushy. The Kodaka chibi is not removable.

http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z348/tkdbliss/c23c034f-4e84-4a56-a48d-8fdb168ca3ae_zpse808377f.jpg

She also comes with these two arm pieces that allow her to have folded arms. The left arm has no hand attached (the hand is on the right arm piece), but once put on they nendoroid, it looks great together. These arms allow her to hold her rabbit plushy.


Sitting Pose - extra bottom piece

http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z348/tkdbliss/e661e164-18ce-4d38-96fe-176f5581796a_zps9950227b.jpg
http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z348/tkdbliss/02294b57-2d94-4694-8377-b69f916e177c_zpscf1f3c5e.jpg

Kodaka comes with an extra bottom piece with two bent legs along with an extra skirt piece which allows for her adorable sitting pose. The skirt is removable. The bent leg's also have hip joints that allow the legs to go sideways along with sit up. They are also removable.

Other Accessories

http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z348/tkdbliss/61b7c6ae-3dc8-4475-a703-241b9653015d_zps06e6572b.jpg

She also comes with her little rabbit that she carries around in the anime! There are three pieces including the head and two bottom pieces. The first bottom piece is for when she holds him in her arms, the second piece that looks like a white blob is actually for her sitting pose. It prevents the legs of the rabbit from getting in the way. Both pieces attach to the head piece in the back.

~*~*~Other Items Included~*~*~

Stand
http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z348/tkdbliss/50ccc696-8543-444e-8869-6a8be7b35329_zps882c4793.jpg

Kobato comes with a generic nendoroid stand which also includes an extra plastic piece so it can attach easier under her hair. She also comes with a extra neck piece which is great if you have an older nendoroid with a frail or broken neck joint!

Direction Sheet
http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z348/tkdbliss/5ec540e7-2223-4d6b-9d5f-11282f6d2992_zpsc9b98209.jpg

The direction sheet a great way to keep track of your items, if you store them in a different container than the original box. It also explains details about how accessories are assembled and how the face plate works.

~*~*~Articulation~*~*~

She has standard nendoroid articulation. The arms move back and forth and also are interchangeable. Her hands also are interchangeable and are able to rotate. The legs have hip joints and also come out. Her waist is easily removable which allows you to put her in her sitting pose. Her neck joint allows you to move the head back and forth and also side to side. As a bonus, Kobato also has joints for her pigtails.

~*~*~New Faceplate~*~*~

http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z348/tkdbliss/6ec07c34-5a7d-4fed-bc03-19d5400c7c57_zpsc35a296a.jpg
http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z348/tkdbliss/35280b67-8cf3-4ffe-b97b-d4fe53e3b963_zps8df88fe3.jpg
http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z348/tkdbliss/cfec42cd-c97f-4309-bc6c-4c3b941923ca_zpsa234039b.jpg

As part of the newer nendoroids (since Miku 2.0 nendoroid #300), it is now very easy to change the face plate. Previously, you had to pull out the entire head including the neck joint to change the face. Now all you have to do is simply remove the front hair piece and pull out the face plate without removing the neck joint. This is similar to how figma face plates are used and make it much easier to change expressions! Also, you do not have to stress the neck joint.

~*~*~Overall Impressions~*~*~

This nendoroid is truly adorable and is now one of my favorites. She is definitely a must have for all Haganai fans! What I really love about her is her accessories and ability to sit. Her sitting pose it what makes this nendoroid one of my favorites. Overall, she represents the character (in chibi form) very well and is a great nendoroid to add to your collection.

I hope you enjoyed my review. Check out my video version of this review as well:

I was actually thinking the same thing when I opened her. The face is a bit off... but yea her cuteness makes up for it :3

secretly-otaku6 år sedan#1773448I think this is one of the cutest Nendos out there. I really love how she turned out and I'm really looking forward to have one myself. However, I gotta say that her first faceplate (the one she has before unpacking her) is a bit off. I would have rather her to have a faceplate with this confident look, you know, the one she uses while she's doing her Reisis V. Sumeragi impression, instead of that huge smile, but besides that, she's a really nice nendo.
