Nendoroid Hakase and Nano: Everyday Life

Sorry for the lack of updates. I was busy working with my brother for the new stage and props for this photo shoot. I tried to copy the set in Shinonome Laboratory in Nichijou. If you watched the anime, you will find some of the scenes based in the original story.

For the Dharma doll, I bought it from a Japan Surplus shop in our local area. I didn’t write on the doll itself, I cut and shaped a sticker (like in the anime) and colored it black. I only used scrap materials for the diorama. I didn’t buy anything brand new except for the glue. 😉

I’m not really a person who do series of stories with nendoroids. Normally, I just wanted to capture what they are up to. I want to freeze those moments forever, just like what we are in real life. But I made it different this time.

As promised, here’s my nendoroid photography of Hakase and Nano Shinonome’s everyday life.

Which story is your favorite?

SCENE 1 “Sakamoto’s Arrival”

Sakamoto cat was seen by Nano in the street, and Hakase found it too and brought it home. They think the cat is cute and so fluffy. They are so fond of its cuteness and wants to take care of the cat.

Hakase invented a red scarf so they can communicate with the Sakamoto.

Nano: “Let’s hear what he has to say!”

Sakamoto (Cat): “That was too much petting, don’t you think? When cats meow they’re almost always hungry you know.. I am 2o years old in human life so respect your elder.” 

SCENE 2 “The Drawing”

Hakase is so happy. What could be the reason?

She happily showed a drawing of her favorite animal. This was Mai’s drawing when Mai went to visit Shinonome Laboratory to play.

SCENE 3 “Roll of Cake”

IMG_0529 (Large)Nano is a robot made by an 8-year-old Hakase. One day Hakase craved for a milk made modifications with Nano to bring out a roll of cake from her arm.

Nano: “Hakase, what kind of modifications have you been making to me??”

Hakase: “Just a roll of cake “

SCENE 4 “Robot is kawaii!”

Nano: “Hakase, can you remove the screw. I worry that they will find out that I am a robot -_-“

Hakase: “But robot is kawaii!! (cute)”

SCENE 5 Sweet Bun, Be Mine

Nano is sharing her sweet bun to Sakamoto and Hakase feels sad about it.

Hakase: “……”

Nano: Here, Sakamoto!

Hakase: “…….”

Hakase: “I want sweet bun too!”

SCENE 6 “A Cupcake for You”

Hakase is drawing her favorite animal.

Nano: “Hakase, Hakase”

Nano: “I have something for you.”

Hakase: “Nano! Nano!”


SCENE 7 “Dharma Doll”

Nano likes the Dharma doll and she even has her own.

One day Hakase noticed that Nano’s Dharma doll has one eye so she drew another one but made a mistake. Sakamoto and Hakase tried to fix it, and here’s what it came out:

Hakase and Sakamoto: “Ha ha ha ha”

When Nano arrives…

Hakase: “Nano, I gave birth..”

“Meet your younger brother”

SCENE 8 “But it’s FUN!”

Hakase picked a grass flower so she can play with Sakamoto.

Hakase: “Here Sakamoto, let’s play”

Sakamoto: “I am not a kid anymore…. but it’s FUN!”

SCENE 9 “Clouds like a Shark”

Hakase: “Nano, look at the clouds. They look like a shark.”

Nano: “Yes, it looks like it.”

Hakase: “Glad you’re back. How’s school, Nano?”

Nano: “I made new friends..”

SCENE 10 “Rock-Paper-Scissors-SHARK!”

“Jan ken pon”

Hakase: “Sa me, Sa me” (Shark, Shark)

Hakase: “Ouch”

SCENE 11 “Hakase Moe!”

SCENE 12 “Goodnight, Dear Hakase”

“Hakase loves Nano”.
