Fun in the mail - Itoshiki Nozomu figure

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei - Itoshiki Nozomu - Sunday X Magazine UFO Prize (SEGA)

ZETSUBOUSHITA~! (I'm in despair!)

Just kidding!

I'm delighted with this lovely figure, depicting the teacher, Itoshiki Nozomu, from Sayonara, Zetsubou Sensei! Especially at the cheap price I got him! As (currently) the only scale figure of the character (the SD Nedoroid is adorable), I'm pleased that despite the low price he's got some great detail to him.

He looks very "posed", rather than natural, as he's in his despair pose, but his face is smiling, as if the actor is reenacting the stance for a fan photo shoot. It actually comes off as rather adorable! The shading on his clothes is of a higher quality than many catcher prize figures, and he stands very well, even without a base.

His desk comes with a rope (for hanging himself - unsuccessfully) and a class list. The class list actually details the other figures in this figure series, rather than the usual students from his class in the manga and anime. The rest were girls from various series, posed in a classroom, intended to have him as the sensei. Cute, but I'd have preferred to have a list of all his usual insane pupils.

Doesn't he look lovely with the Tachikoma? His glasses are made of clear plastic, and his face is very accurate. He could only be the one and only Itoshiki Nozomu!

Don't despair! He often pops up on Ebay for a steal! Grab him while you can!
