Nico Yazawa: Picnic Girl

Today’s main feature…!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

A lunch box and flask in a picnic basket… (・ω・ノ)ノ!
This can only mean that today’s review is of…

The 1/8th Scale…
**Nico Yazawa: Picnic Girl!♡**

From the popular anime series ‘LoveLive!’ comes a 1/8th scale figure of Nico Yazawa. The figure is a part of the LoveLive! Cafe Campaign in AKIHABARA, where fans all over Japan voted on which LoveLive! character is best suited for a picnic in the early Summer – the character that you would most like to go on a picnic with! The winner of the contest was Nico Yazawa, who then had this special illustration drawn of her to commemorate the victory!

Now that illustration has been transformed into a figure which shows off Nico’s healthy and energetic body, as well as her dynamic pose that instantly catches the eye! The cute smile on her face is sure to make anyone who looks her way feel uplifted and ready for another day!

Nico Nico Nii~♡

The adorable ‘Niconii’ also known as Nico Yazawa has been made into a 1/8th scale figure filled with energy and with a cute, playful smile across her face! The figure is a part of the LoveLive! Cafe Campaign in AKIHABARA, where fans all over Japan voted on which LoveLive! character is best suited as picnic girl and Nico took the top spot which lead to this illustration of her being drawn! Now the lovely illustration has also been transformed into a figure for fans to enjoy!!

The figure allows you to see the reverse side too!

One of the things that figures will always have over illustrations is that you can look and enjoy from any angle you please! Nico is posed with one leg lifted high off the ground showing her agile body as well as just how active a character she is, and her trademark twin-tails are also blowing about in the wind around her! ☆

Of course all this movement is bound to show on her outfit as well, and as you can see the camisole and pink jacket she is wearing are moving around together with her energetic movement! (/ω\)

The clothes look so soft and realistic…!

Sometimes looking at these figures I really forget that they are made from a hard material! The sculpting really makes her clothes look like they are made from fabric and will be soft to the touch! Σ(・Д・] )

Also note the detail on the zip! Even the teeth are amazingly intricate!

But the details are about more than just her outfit…!

The lovely curves and agile body that allow Niconii to thrive as a member of μ’s have been faithfully preserved on the figure! You could almost say she looks to be dancing right in the pose! (`・ω・´)ゞ

The camisole outfit gives a nice look at her healthy looking stomach and all the curves around it! No one can doubt this is the body of an idol! Scale figures really capture a character down to the finest of details, and looking at those details can really be enjoyable!

Anyway, let’s move on and take a look at her amazing expression! ♫

She’s so cute…!

The slightly mischievous look in her smile brings it all together! It’s perfect! The somewhat sideways glance of her eyes is also beautiful!

Even the smaller accessories like the pink scrunchie tying up her hair and the sunglasses are so nicely sculpted and painted to really bring out her cute expression to the fullest! (●´ω`●)

But there are other intricate areas that I haven’t touched on yet, for instance…

The Picnic Basket!

△ Two lunch boxes and a canteen! Ready to have a picnic with you!
The items can also be removed from the basket!

△ The details on the weaving of the basket itself is also lovely!

Her Feet!

△ The lifted up foot has the shoe’s sole faithfully sculpted!

△The loose socks around her ankles bring out the innocent side of Nico!

The included circular stand features Nico’s name as well as a refreshing, Summertime look! The colors makes me think of being under some trees!

Her expression really is adorable, but everything else about the figure is also an absolute pleasure to look at! From the smaller accessories to her outfit and of course the lovely curves of her body – it’s an item that no Nico fan should be without! (´□`。)

Keep a cute Nico Nico smile by your side!
