Alright. Time for a figure review after a long, long, long break. This time, we’ll be taking a look at the exclusive Otaku Yuki Nendoroid Petit figure that comes with the ‘Super Limited Version’ of the third volume of ‘The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi-Chan’ (TMOSH-C).
For those of you who don’t know what TMOSH-C is, it is a mini comic that parodies the TMOSH series. It was recently animated and released exclusively on Kadokawa’s YouTube Channel.
In this story, Yuki is eventually hooked on Otaku culture and soon turns into a full fledged Otaku.
Shoving all her books aside for various Otaku merchandise.
The box is a nice hardy cardoard box that has a tiny windowed display to see the Yuki figure.
Opening the box, we are treated to the TMOSH-C Volume 3 Manga and an extra Manga which I believe was included for promotional purposes and the Yuki figure encased in her plastic packaging. Once again, the accessories are neatly arranged in the box, something that I love about Japanese figures.
Before continuing on with the review, here’s a couple of shots of the contents of the Manga.
When taking the figure out of the packaging, I noticed that every piece of the Yuki figure was separated by a piece of plastic. So, some disassembly and assembly required. (^.^;)
…and here we have Otaku Yuki with her two accessories.
Accessory 1: Wireless Bunny Headphones
The perfect accessory to compliment Nagato’s kawaii~ness and her Otaku~ness.
The Wireless Bunny Headphones made their first appearance in Episode 2 of TMOSH-C. It was given to her by Kyon after he chanced upon her playing an eroge. (Yes, playing an eroge with the sounds on without any headset/headphones WILL make others around you feel akward.)
Accessory 2: Kimidori-San
Kimidori-San is actually a living, talking balloon animal that Yuki made for Achakura by manipulating the air inside it.
Kimidori-San fits perfectly on Yuki’s head and stays on by fitting the Headphones into the groove.
Overall, I really recommend picking up this figure if you ever get the chance. Not only is it a terribly awesome version of Yuki, it is also an exclusive that retails for a relatively cheap price! (^.^) Not only that, you get a volume of awesome Manga as well.
Fan of the series? Fan of Nendoroid Petits? What are you waiting for???
Ah! What is this? It seems Konata is demanding that Yuki hand over that ‘Super Limited Version’ Otaku Merchandise!

Let’s see how some of my other Nendoroid Petits look with the headset.
…and my favourite:
Ah yes, my favorite scene from TMOSH-C.
Paradise Lost happens to be the opening for Ga-Rei Zero and the current intro theme for Actar’s Reviews. :)
