Time for the third review in this series of four. It’s Konata’s turn to shine in her summer uniform! While Konata, just like Tsukasa and Miyuki, only got one other regular edition figma in her winter uniform, she also got a release of a very special Haruhi Cosplay version! This new summer uniform figma of course comes with some nice extra’s to effectively drain more money out of our pockets!
Konata is probably the favorite character for most readers and watchers. For those who don’t know who she is, I’ll let Wikipedia talk:
Konata Izumi (泉 こなた) is, more by default than anything else, the “leader” and the shortest of the main characters. Nicknamed “Kona-chan” by Tsukasa, she is an eccentric but friendly and outgoing girl, with a mischievous yet good-natured sense of humor. She can be smart, but she hates studying, thus her grades are a bit uneasy. However, she is an expert in pulling an “all-nighter”. In contrast to her studying habits, she loves video games, to the extent that she can compete against Kagami Hiiragi on trivia-based games. In addition, she loves anime, which is also due to her father, Sōjirō Izumi’s influence, along with the games. Her father buys adult games for himself, so she is able to play and enjoy them. In fact, when she became eighteen, Konata was overjoyed, since she could now go buy and play ero-games legally. In the anime, Konata constantly refers to or parodies several popular games, anime, and manga (much to the annoyance of Kagami).
The box, like the ones of the other girls, is nice and bright. It looks exactly the same as the other ones, except the main color is blue for Konata.
Let’s see what’s inside! Of course, we find all the usuals: hands, the bag, the stand and the extra faces. Unique for this figma are the bag, filled with otaku goodies and the head piece for Konata’s cousin Yutaka Kobayakawa, nicknamed Yu-chan by most.
The bag looks like those back you’d get in stores such as Gamers, except this one has a nice figma logo printed on it~ Konata seems pleased with her latest loot.
The angry face Konata is not something you see too often in the series. The only two I can think of is when she cosplays as Haruhi and in the intro at the DADADADA part XD If you get me.

Of course, Konata also comes with a blank face and a sticker sheet for all the creative people. I didn’t have time to come up with a nice one, but the stickers are exactly the same as Tsukasa’s and Miyuki’s, which you can see in my previous reviews.
Lastly, we have Yu-chan. While Konata’s body is perfect since they are both the shortest of the series, this still makes Yu-chan too tall. As you can see at the following clip starting 3:25, you know only bad things would come from that!
