Nendoroid Nyarko from Goodsmile
Around this time last year a new anime series came off that was based extremely loosely on the works of H.P. Lovecraft. The main character of this series was a creature/girl by the name of Nyarlathotep (Nyaruko) with the catch of the series being that she was hopelessly in love with a human who had no interest in her despite her being pretty much formed entirely from Moe.
I imagine many Lovecraft fans would abhor the show for what it did with the mythos but I loved it. It was clear the writer of the light novel was extremely familiar with Lovecrafts work and they did a good job of saying "I am doing my own thing, but using some of the mythos from something I love." It was a fanfic come to life, in a good way… instead of … you know… the terrible terrible ways fanfics can go. *shudder*
Anyway, Nyaruko is such a great character I was super excited when she got the Nendoroid treatment and she turned out to be one of my most photogenic figures to date.
Everything unpacked and completely unwilling to stay organized in my light tent.
She comes with this little beast guy, Shantak-kun.
It has a life of its own.
I don't know if this is a new standard base for nendoroids but I sure hope it is. The arm actually plugs into her back much like a figmas stand…. so… so much better than the precarious holding systems of previous nendoroids.
So there she is Nyarko Nendoroid from Goodsmile. She is a great figure and just looks amazing and the new stand system is just great. I hope they keep using it.
Probably a skip for people who are not fans of the show, unless you are digging her moe looks, but a great figure for a nendoroid collection none the less.
