What if I told you a new one’s on the way? AAAND IT’S HONOKA!
Alright…she’s going to be here any minute–oh.
Welcome to another post by me! :3
This time, we’ll feature my newly-acquired nendoroid, Kousaka Honoka from Love Live!
Honoka is the leader of the school idol group μ’s. She’s known for her energetic personality which encourages and inspires the rest of the members in their performances. She is voiced by Emi Nitta (aka Emitsun).
Ok, let’s get on with this show~
I was asking around in the FB group Nendoroid Philippines on nendo Honoka’s price, looking for something I can afford at once (Pre-order prices are lower than after they’re released, you see, so her price right now is kinda high) and one of the members, VT, told me his store is selling them at the pre-order price. As someone who’s following some tight budget, I had to take the chance!
VT is one of the co-owners of the Hubbyte Toy Store, which started as an online shop on eBay and later on got a physical store in…Pasig? You can read on their history in their FB page. Hubbyte is an official partner shop of Good Smile Company, so you can trust that their GSC products are legit.
I met up with Dash, one of the people in Hubbyte, and I that’s how I paid for and got nendo Honoka~
Let’s proceed to the unboxing!
This is a brand new box, so it’s still taped. From where I’ve read, GSC uses a rounded tape in their packaging. It’s kind of like a signature thing.
Here are the contents of the box…
So, there’s Honoka, a faceplate, a stand with an extra neck connector, a leg, and three other arms, one of which has no hand.
Now to dismantle all the parts! This is my way of checking which parts I can remove.
Alright, after that, it’s time to re-assemble nendo Honoka and have some fun!
I’m glad to finally have a second nendoroid! Now I can change parts with–oh. Wait…Nico doesn’t have much extra parts. No matter, each member has unique arms with them so you can exchange each parts!

Nendoroid Honoka, WELCOME TO THE PILE! ;D
