Azone has released the final member of the Keion club in doll form: cute little Azusa ^^. I just so happen to have her ;)
As with Yui, Mio, and Mugi, Azusa comes with her instrument. Ritsu was the only one to not have her instrument. I guess drums were too much work to reproduce? Anyway, Azusa’a guitar is pretty decent quality, though it’s hard to keep the strap from slipping off her shoulder ^^;
Azusa features a new body type, Pure Neemo Flection S. It’s slightly smaller than rest of the Azone K-ON! girls. Unfortunately, I didn’t take a comparison shot but I’ll get to it eventually. Maybe when I put Azusa in this cute maid outfit I have here… kekeke ;)
Although Azusa is the last official member of the Keion club girls, Azone is trying to cash in on the K-ON! craze and will be releasing even more characters from the series. They released Sawa-sensei as a limited release at Wonder Fest but I wasn’t willing to spend the premium to acquire her. Nodoka and Ui are also coming and I wouldn’t doubt if we saw Jun and some of the other minor characters as well.
Neko mimi mode!
For me, I think I’ve satisfied my Azone K-ON! quota and will stop at Azusa. I love the K-ON! characters but these dolls aren’t cheap and the more I pose (or attempt to pose) the Pure Neemo bodies, the more frustrated I become with them ^^; They seem to be made rather cheaply despite their high price. They don’t pose well due to limited join flexibility and the joints tend to come apart far too easily. Elbows detach, feet come loose, they fall over, etc… My 1/6 scale Mama Chapp girls don’t exhibit problems like this ^^;
Still, I’m glad I have the five K-ON! girls. They’re a great set together and I have the ability to dress them in lots of different outfits (which I take full advantage of!) so they have plenty of replay value ;) Now I just need to do one final group shot with all the girls together. Will get around to that at some point ^^;
Thanks for viewing!
