Nendoroid review: Inori Yuzuriha

This Nendoroid is Inori Yuzuriha of Guilty Crown, her original design is made by the one and only Redjuice of Supercell. I'm a huge fan of Supercell so I don't really need to go into why I ordered this. I pre-ordered her back in April from AmiAmi for about 2800 yen which is around $35 and she was released in late July. With SAL shipping, took about 2 weeks time to arrive which isn't that bad. Anyways, lets get on with the review.

Looking at the box, I feel this color scheme matches her really well. I honestly like this box better than my other Nendos only because it's not as plain as the rest. My box came with a slight scratch on the plastic screen but It doesn't bother me as much as it would some hardcore collector who likes everything sealed and still in full wrap
┐(‘~` )┌

From left to right: Void Face, Serious Face, Surprised Face

Inori comes with 3 different face plates, an extra pair of arms, angled joints, and multiple hands for making poses. One of her faces is the default innocent surprised face which has a little "o" for a mouth. Another face she has is the serious face for serious business. Her last face is a void face which is similar to the surprised face but with eyes closed and a little blush. For her accessories, there are 2 hand guns, her void, and a scarf like garment. What makes this Nendoroid nice is that she also comes with her robotic companion, Funnell, which is pronounced Fyuneru in Japanese. Sadly my Funnell came with a semi broken leg but it still attaches fine and I can just fix it with glue (´A`。). I will explain more in detail about the poses in the pics below.

A perfect representation of Inori herself. I can
see her asking something like "Shu, what are feels?"
just because she is moe and inhuman.
Inori's gangsta pose with side wielding dual pistols.
One of my favorite scenes in the anime itself.
@#$% accuracy when you can look bad ass, right?

Inori making a cats cradle with string. This is symbolic
in the anime but I'll leave the details out in this review.
This is her Void pose. In Guilty Crown, a void
is an object which is sealed inside a person
and its use and shape is represented by the
person itself. Inori's void is a large blue sword
that can cut through the toughest of metals.

I really like the way this pose looks altogether. There
is no attachments or anything with the void parts so
it all stands nicely, especially with Inori floating on
the stand like this.
"Please use me". One of Inori's popular lines in
the anime where she asks Shu to take and use her
void. The scene itself is somewhat fanservice but you
don't see me complaining  ┐(‘~` )┌

Inori Yuzuriha with Funnell

Funnell, you can rotate his eyes and he opens up too.

This pretty much shows how much I love this character and series. Inori Nendoroid
on top of Supercell's My Dearest CD which is the opening theme to Guilty Crown.

Overall, I really like this Nendoroid and it is one of my favorites as of now. This makes my 4th authentic Nendoroid in my collection, and yes i do have a fake Shana of Shakugan only because she was my first Nendo and I couldn't tell from shit to legit (´・_・`). I do plan to get more Nendoroids in the future but I usually eye out my favorites or ones that have interesting traits. For those who don't know I am strictly limiting myself to Nendoroids. I do have large scale figures I want but I'm either too ghetto, lacking space, or ending up with my conclusion that 1 large scale figure = 2-3 Nendoroids xD. I hope you guys enjoyed my review and I plan to have more reviews in the future and not just on Nendoroids (`・ω・´)

My collection as of today.
