Fans of Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out! are being presented with special fan service. That is to say, this figure of Hana Uzaki depicts the manga/anime heroine in her server uniform!
Retailing at 16,800 yen and made by Kadokawa and sculptor Yadokari, this figure is 1/7th scale and 23 cm tall. Uzaki-chan is holding a tray with delicious desserts on top of it - a melon cream soda and a cherry-topped parfait. As for Uzaki-chan’s outfit, she’s wearing a tight buttoned-down black top with matching black pants and a brown apron. This is the standard uniform for employees of Cafe Asia, an establishment where her senpai, Shinichi Sakurai, works as well. She actually got the job there because of Sakurai senpai. After she was hired, the two spent more time together and were caught up in even more shenanigans.
While the figure is already very cute and even comes with a base that looks just like the floor of Cafe Asia, it actually comes with a few options to change up its display. Uzaki-chan can be assembled with big bright eyes or squinting eyes. The squinting eyes are a common sight when Uzaki-chan is mischievously trolling her senpai! The other replacement part is her chest piece. Uzaki-chan’s bust is so large that it popped open her buttoned-down shirt, revealing a slight view of her bra.
These kinds of features pay homage to the silly nature of the manga and anime. The first season of Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out! aired from July to September 2020, and it was such a hit that a second season has already been announced. However, an exact date for the anime’s return has yet to be revealed.
In the meantime, fans can enjoy this Uzaki-chan figure which is already available for pre-order from retailers and is scheduled to release in June 2021.
