For every Mashiro, there should be a Takagi, because everybody knows they work best together! So here he is, Takagi Akito, and the little candidate himself is pretty excited too!
We start by looking at his box packaging! His box’s design is similar to his partner’s, Mashiro, but is printed with bright red! The captions on the front are also similar to Mashiro’s but the bottom right corner is his alias, “Shuujin“, instead!
There are certain parts of the captions’ above that are similar to Mashiro’s but Takagi’s has a lot more kanji characters in his captions that I’ve yet to learn to read or understand.
I will study hard and learn to read these captions!
His earphones are detailedly craved! They are not entirely fixed on him so you can move them around but it is still connected to his jacket somehow so you can’t actually do much with the earphones besides having them behind Takagi’s neck. The wire of the earphones seem rather fragile so be careful!
Takagi’s spectacles are definitely removable and he also came with an extra pair of spectacles that are tinted! The sides of his inner front hair has dents to enable you to easily put on his spectacles. The number of dents on each side also differs so that you won’t put on his spectacles the wrong way!
Since his spectacles can stand as an individual piece, you can actually use it for other nendoroids, but because they are made specially for Takagi, having the spectacles stay on the other little ones may be rather difficult but it is definitely worth a try!
Not one nendoroid can be with zero flaws, and even though Takagi came as close to perfect to me, I found out that his face plates are rather loose from his hair piece! But this is not a big problem at all so don’t mind, don’t mind.
The differences between his hands are really small, but the correct hand to hold his portfolio case is actually his left hand!
But who says you can’t use his right hand to hold his portfolio case too? You actually can! The same exchangeable concept doesn’t apply for his notebook though, because his left hand’s grip is far too wide for it.
“Takagi-san, Takagi-san. Let’s take a photo with your spectacles off- Erk!!”
and sorry for my bad editing, but Takagi looks like a totally different person without his spectacles! His eyes are really beautiful and stands out a lot when his spectacles are not in the way!
I almost forgot to show you Takagi with his notebo- …Takagi seems to be thinking really hard now while staring at his notebook!
Ah! Wa- Wait, Takagi-san! Where do you think you’re running off to?! Don’t you want your showtime to be longer?!
So this is the end of Takagi’s showcasing time! Overall, Takagi seemed rather plain to me at first but I realised that he had a lot more poses than he initially seemed to have after I did this photoshoot so he is a good buy afterall! I will definitely capture some photos of him working with Mashiro one day! Thank you for your time. See you again!
