Busty bombshell brainiac Sena Kashiwazaki sparked a huge following and demand back in 2011 when the first season of Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai aired. Once the anime ended in December that year the anticipation for a sculpt worthy of Sena’s curves grew bigger. If memory serves, Good Smile Company was one of the first companies to announce that they would fulfill such a request.
Come early May of 2013 and the finished 1/7 product from GSC has already received heavy competition from AlphaMax, Wave, Kotobukiya and Griffon Enterprises during both 2012 and this year. Unlike local rivals however, Good Smile skipped suggestive poses in bovine outfits and stuck with the cover art off one of the light novels, similar to their take on Yozora Mikazuki.
Before befriending her fellow cast, the only companion Sena is seen with is her blue butterfly hair pin. Much like in real life, good looks (based on personal taste) and intellect are all for naught if you’re arrogant and self-centered.
Sena does not only combat jealous tormentor Yozora but also her overwhelming affection for male protagonist Kodaka Hasegawa, often resulting in embarrassing encounters which forces this leading lady to dash outside the room in tears.
Just where are you going Sena?
I know it’s a depressing fact but sadly all characters in the entire world can’t be naked and high on sugar canes all the time. Therefore, when these rare phenomenons do occur it may be a good opportunity to explore the vast spectrum of emotions that are available to us.
In my humble and completely unbiased opinion, GSC’s Sena is by far the superior version in terms of craftsmanship compared to the other Kashiwazakis out there. When it comes to resemblance however I do think that Griffon has managed to better capture the unique art of illustrator Buriki.
