「毎日楽しいの為に」 Flawless Passion
After returning from my first time in Japan, my state of mind regarding my hobbies was chaotic and disoriented. In Japan, I had easy access to everything I wanted. I no longer had to pre-order things ahead of time or decide my purchases based on a few pictures. Walking into a store and seeing for myself in-person was amazing. My horizon also expanded beyond just figure collecting. The problem was that I couldn’t stay forever. By the end of my time in Japan, I had completely lost track of figure releases, when I no longer had time to shop around. The Nendoroid for Inami Mahiru came out just a few days prior to my departure from Japan, and so I hastily bought it. Then I realized I haven’t even bought Popura yet. At that point, all I could do was wait until I get back to place an order online.
So here she is:
- ねんどろいど 種島ぽぷら Nendoroid Taneshima Popura
Here is one of the sides as well as the back of the box.
I really liked the anime for Working and I find Popora herself adorable, so I knew for sure that I would like the Nendoroid. Just one issue… Mine came with a paint scratch on the front hair piece…
While Nendoroid Popura is still very adorable nonetheless, it was if the world wanted to immediately hammer in the disadvantage of not buying figures in person upon my return from Japan. The paint scratch is incredibly obvious and very demotivating to continue figure collecting.
