The bleeding didn't stop from last week - here comes my first and only Nendoroid I've ever bought for myself @_@
Nendoroid Shana Dengeki Daioh version, or commonly known as the Black Hair version, is the magazine exclusive Nendoroid figure of Shana by Good Smile Company (GSC). Getting one of these definitely isn't easy by now, and I got mine at a relatively hefty price
Although it's called Nendoroid (or sometimes Nendo) in English, we Chinese tend to call it a Q版 (Q-version), where "Q" is approximately shortened for "cute". Basically it's akin to chibi or super deformed.
So why did I get it? Well, I didn't plan to get this in the first place (just like the black hair figma Shana), but after seeing so pictures of this Nendoroid here and there (especially the one where Valho puts his Nendo Shana in all pictures of his loot), the cuteness overwhelmed me, and at the end I told meronpan right here that I'd get it, and I did orz
As one can see, there are a number parts to go with it beside the clear stand: Alternate arms, alternate face, alternate hair, a different skirt for sitting pose, 2 tails and her favourite melonpan~
As for that thing keeping Shana standing at the back, I'll mentioned later what it is.
What's worth noticing is that there's only one ahoge (i.e. the hair sticking out of her head) for two hair pieces. Since I don't want to break anything (and I have not seen other people changing the ahoge piece back and forth before), I've left it on the nekomimi one.
It's also worth noting that the back of the box mentioned only one tail on the list of parts, whereas there are actually two in this Nendoroid.
But again I mentioned that this isn't really gonna be a review, because things start to go off track when my 1/100 Tieren finally gives Shana her long waited melonpan...
Then her ^o^ face comes, and it's illegally cute.

Without me noticing it, I've got that many Shana figures already. It kinda does take me by surprise as I don't own many figures, and I've not thought of Shana being the character I'd have the most figures of o_o;;
A finisher combo: Nendoroid Nekomimi Shana with Kawaii!
Okay, anymore of that and I'd go moe overload. @_@
And I've really spent too much on stuff for this break. Way too much. I probably won't spend anymore on figures for the time being until Alter Fate comes, and devote more to my gunpla backlog, but I'd have to leave those for the summer.
Meanwhile I should get myself cured/uncured by appreciating a military diorama I've bought fairly recently as well (yea more blood lost, but not as badly):

P.S. The mysterious creature holding Shana on the 3rd pic was a turtle called 小鋒 (Siu Fung). It's one of my sister's family of 4 turtles, and I'm not sure why a lot of people have mistaken them as rabbits ^^;
