As I was writing up another post I was clicking around for information on various anime figures and noticed that Nemu here had official promo shots out. Check AmiAmi and sure enough she was for sale, so I purchased immediately.
Nemu’s from an eroge called Da Capo that’s had many adaptations and sequels in all sorts of media. I watched some of the first adaptation, and a whole season of another, but I wasn’t ever really impressed with the series. I think I was often distracted by the artwork in one of them, it made every character look anorexic, ew. But Nemu was cute and I have a real hard time resisting cute.
I’m a bit mixed up with who the manufacturer is on this, I believe Good Smile Company is just distributing this on behalf of Circus. I’m hoping that means she lives up to some sort of standard and isn’t a poor quality figure. She’s sculpted by “Choushinsei” & “Hikari” in 1/8th scale and should measure in around 20 cm tall. Her MSRP is quite high at ¥8,800 / $105 CAD, which she’s definitely not worth. I ordered her through AmiAmi where she was on sale for ¥7,050 / $84 CAD, still quite high admittedly. Nemu comes with four copies of the same ‘premium rare card’ for some trading card game called “Weiß Schwarz” which might be why she’s so expensive. Another reason could be that she’s cast-off, though this time around I don’t really care about this, I like her school uniform and zettai ryouiki. She looks a bit too small without her uniform on as well.
