Aqua Nendoroid

Aqua Nendoroid


It’s already Figure Friday again and this time I have the goddess of water herself, Aqua from Konosuba! Aqua is one of two Nendoroids from KonoSuba that I have, the other being Megumin who will be featured in next week’s Figure Friday. If you missed last week, we took a look at the Kyouko Sakura Nendoroid from Madoka Magica.

The first thing I noticed about the packaging of the Aqua Nendoroid is that her box doesn’t have any watermarked designs on it like we saw with the Kyouko Sakura one. Because of this, and the flat, non-gradient colors, the box seemed more drab and boring. As of right now, I only have Nendoroids from two different anime so the boxes might be designed differently based off the anime the character is from.

However, the change in box design could also be due to when the Nendoroids were released. As you can see from the picture of the front, Aqua is number 630 while Kyouko Sakura was number 217. The design of the boxes may have simply changed over time, but we’ll figure all that out together once I have a larger collection.

The back of the box features some of the possible assembly variations for Aqua, and the sides of the box (not pictured) show assembly variations as well. The Aqua box also includes a clear circle on each side through which you can see into the box like the front.


As with any Nendoroid, deciding on which stance to set them up in is the hardest choice (other than deciding which one to buy). For Aqua, I first wanted to assemble her in the crying and running away position featured on the back of the box because this is something she does frequently in the anime.

While this pose is probably the most entertaining to me, I also had to think about the other props that she came with because I wanted her to have the most iconic Aqua look. She came with her signature staff as well as two fans complete with water fountains coming out of them to recreate one of her party tricks she uses in the anime.

In the end I decided that going with a pose which incorporated her staff was the best choice simply because although the crying pose is my favorite, it does not include any of the props she came with. That being said, I may end up changing her back at some point because I love that pose too much.

Along with the pieces she came with, I would have liked to see the ability to pose her where she is throwing up rainbows as she tends to do presumably because she’s a goddess, but I can understand that they are only able to fit so much into the box. Other than that, I have no real complaints about the Aqua Nendoroid or anything that comes with it.
