Don't you just adore flowers? There aren't much flowers during this Winter season but I still love seeing them as decorative motifs anywhere! (Especially on Cath Kidston items!) How's your holiday so far? Mine's been so amazing! Compared to last year, I made tons of people in need happier by helping out in my parents' charity events at our province, gave to way more people and reached out to a lot of people! I think that's what the holidays is about any way! It's to remind other people that they are well loved and important!
Back when I was in Tokyo last October for Halloween, one of my favourite shops stocked these Flower Afternoon kujis! They were already out of their boxes, and you could purchase individual characters. I believe this was what sparked my love for these adorable figures (and not to mention series!)~ I bought 2 Makotos back then thinking that I would just like one! When I look back, I'm glad I pursued kujis~ They are such fun figures to have!
KUJIS: *KICKS NENDOROID HABIT OUT OF MIKA'S SYSTEM*
I love them all! o(〃＾▽＾〃)o
Is it possible to buy just one? I don't think so.
But seriously, the Flower Afternoon kuji set is one of the most memorable sets for me not only because it's the first set I was able to complete but they are all just adorable. I know I say ~adorable~ a lot in my blog but is there even another word to define these kujis? Nope, there aren't. I'll say it as often as I please! When you line them all up together like this, the cuteness magnifies up to a million!
My Mom loves this series a lot as well!
These were released on September which is entering in Autumn. Quite strange they'd release such a Spring-themed collection at that time, eh? I'm not complaining though!
Rin-chan! The bird's flying towards his arms. He must have it trained or something! This is definitely my favourite kuji in the entire series. 10 points to you, son! (⋆ʾ ˙̫̮ ʿ⋆)
Rin: "Look and see what I can do!"
Me: *claps* So proud of Rin-chan!
Haru looks like this shy guy who wants to give you a flower. His expression can also be interpreted as someone who looks completely disinterested. Haru-chan: "Hold it like this? Err, okay. Are we done yet? Ho hum." It depends on your perspective but I'd rather think of it as the latter! (Only because I believe in Haru! HA HA HA!) ♡✧( ु•⌄• )
His head looks shiny! Ahh, so black~ o(｀・∀・´)○
Nagisa-chan's hair has been used by a bird! Be careful not to keep that bird on your head, baby! Or else it might lay an egg on it! （‐＾▽＾‐）
And of course Rei-chan's glasses take centre stage on his figure! Is it just me or does it look a bit big on his face?
Let me go back to saying that these figures are painted quite well for something so small! I own plenty of figures and some have really messy paint jobs! Taito kujis are done good for a margin of the price. They have a slight sheen on their paintwork. It's a particular detail that I enjoy! Makoto's hair color is also very accurate! * u *
Of course! How could I ever forget these two~ UGUUUUU~ I have no words! Is it just me or does these two look good together? That is to say the other is smiling, the other is frowning! Oh no! > w < I also have the tendency to blush when I photograph these babies together. (Can anyone guess why?)
This is how I imagine it's playing out in my head:
Sousuke: Please hurry and take the photo already, Mika-san. I would rather train myself than do this.Mika: Sousuke-kun, please smile...!Makoto: Ah, maa maa~ I'm sure she'll take a good photo! ^ o ^ /Sousuke: This is the best I can do.
Sousuke---! SUCH A VIRGO!
Please consider getting a Sousuke merch and putting him together with Mako-chan! It's such a refreshing pair~! ҉*\( ‘ω’ )/*҉
You can put them together back with Haru or Rin but... maybe you'll like these two together if you give them a chance? Eh, eh? Who knows, right? *wiggles eyebrows*
This was such a fun article to write~ I'm definitely doing more in the near future! Enjoy your holidays, everyone! *hugs you all* ⊂((・▽・))⊃
