Menma, or Meiko Honma is from the really touching anime Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai. (あの日見た花の名前を僕達はまだ知らない) whew~ or known as the MUCH shorter Anohana. I was really excited for the Menma Nendoroid when I saw her grey prototype and now Mikatan has a nice picture review up!
After the horrible looking Ohana, I was glad to see that GSC didn’t mess up Menma and indeed she looks so adorable shrunk down to Nendoroid size. Sill considering how loli she was as a character, there didn’t seem to be much to shrink down?
Menma had a really simple look and it works like a charm for her, dull though the colours might be. However you look at her, the happy smiling face coupled with the frilly white dress is so win~
True to current Nendoroid trends, Menma also comes with various accessories. Which in this case includes the dairy, tray of buns (table and background is NOT included) and the flowers. I really dig the determined Menma face-plate and it’s so adorable with the buns~
When your anime title has 花 (flower) in your name, you know it will pop out somewhere somehow. And the Nendoroid comes with plenty of them~
I was already feeling the love for this Nendoroid and when GSC provided the props to re-create the awesome closing from the anime, it became from a good to buy Nendoroid to a must-buy. =D All in all a terribly cute Nendoroid and despite it’s plainness (in a good way) Mikatan has sold me on this. =)
