Sena Kashiwazaki by Good Smile Company

Project details

Top-heavy brainiac Sena Kashiwazaki sparked a huge following and demand back in 2011 when the first season of Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai aired.

Good Smile Company based their rendition of Sena one of the light novel’s cover art, 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 the character to dash outside the room in tears.

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.

    Oh the delayed Sena, it took so long.

    Nothing wrong about showing non happy figures, this one presents Sena running out of the room ashamed of herself and angry about Yozora being mean again. Still Sena appears a little uninvolved it this captured situation, flushed cheeks, teary eyes would improve this figures expression a lot. I can’t complain about anything else, the pose is good and the clothes look appealing. It’s a dynamic sculpt, I like how her tie is flying and her buttcheeks are slightly flashing ^_^

    Actually exchangeable heads with different expressions would have been a cool idea for these figures.
    The craftsmanship of both is quite nice, but still they are not as nice as GSC could have made them.

    I totally feel the urge to apply some blush haha.

    I came for the panties… I left in tears.

    Agree w/you in that this is probably the best Sena available, but I’m not sure if that is saying much. Season 3 is pretty much guaranteed so I’m gonna just pray for something amazing by Max Factory or Alter.
