This paper doll craft is Kobato Hasegawa, a supporting character from the Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (aka Haganai) Light Novel series, the papercraft was created by Lili. Kobato Hasegawa is Kodaka’s younger sister and is a student in middle school division of St. Chronica’s Academy and becomes the sixth member of the Neighbors’ Club despite her juniority. She is very close to her brother, and behaves in a jealous and clingy way whenever she feels that he is not giving her the attention she deserves, to the point where it is obvious that she has a brother complex. She sees Maria as a rival for Kodaka’s brotherly affections and so often gets into fights with the latter.
The reason why Kobato cannot make friends is because she is under a constant self-delusion of being a Gothic vampire and being naturally shy. Kobato is a shy person that doesn’t tend to interact with the strangers around her. She is extremely close to Kodaka and gets jealous if Kodaka diverts his attention from her.
During her 7th grade, Kobato saw second season of anime “Kurogane no Necromancer” and after that has developed obsession with it. She has had a penchant for darkness, vampires and the macabre ever since.
As a result she often speaks in an affected fashion, claims to be known as the ancient vampire “Reisys VI Felicity Sumeragi”, and wears a Gothic dress and red contacts, but this façade quickly breaks down when she gets emotionally worked up and she speaks in a strong Kyūshū accent.
Indeed, her behavior does not for the most part differ from that of a regular girl which Kodaka points out, causing her to be embarrassed and slightly lose character.
Kodaka said that Kobato looked more like their mother, having golden-blond hair and blue eyes. Kobato mainly kept her hair flowing down but still have two small horse tails from each side. Kobato is usually depicted in her Gothic Lolita dress , thigh-high socks with a black barrette. She also wore a red-eye contact lens on her right eye to match the anime character she’s usually cosplaying.
During Summer, Kobato initially was dressed in her home clothes which consists of a pink shirt and a skirt but later, changed to a more summer friendly version of her Gothic Lolita dress. Kobato also owned a pink bikini and it was said that she loved it very much and used to wear it everyday in the past. Kobato also almost always carries a patchwork stuffed rabbit with her.
Sadly, in terms of studies, Kobato is not the brightest of the members. She has shown that she is not very good at mathematics and took a long time to try and solve a math question given by Kodaka. Kobato has also displayed a rather limited vocabulary, frequently getting words wrong and not understanding some words.
Kobato is also rather naive in some sense as she would sometimes, get tricked by Maria and Yozora. She also tends to contradict herself and if the mistake was pointed out, she would often revert back to her old personality.
However, that being said, Kobato does have excellent memory in the area of her favorite anime/manga series, Kurogane no Necromancer, being able to memorize many trivia and facts about the show and would often show anger to those who tried to pretend to be knowledgeable in the series.
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai is a Japanese light novel series written by Yomi Hirasaka, illustrated by Buriki, and published by Media Factory.
Kodaka Hasegawa is a recent transfer student to St. Chronica’s Academy, a Catholic high school. As with every other school he has ever attended, he finds it difficult to make friends there because of his naturally-blond hair and fierce-looking eyes, which make him look threatening to his prejudiced schoolmates.
One day, Kodaka accidentally comes across the equally solitary and very abrasive Yozora Mikazuki while she converses with her imaginary friend, Tomo. Realizing that neither of them have any social lives, they decide that the best way to improve their situation is to form a club – the Neighbor’s Club – precisely intended to make friends and learn social skills.
Five other members soon join the club, starting with the school’s well-connected but arrogant idol Sena Kashiwazaki, who has no female friends of her own because of their jealousy over her many male admirers. The next to join is Yukimura Kusunoki, a feminine underclassman of Kodaka’s who rather idolizes him and follows him in the hope that it will teach him to become manlier. Maria Takayama is a 10-year-old “genius” teacher and nun at the academy whom Yozora recruits to become the club adviser. Rika Shiguma is an underclassman and well-known scientific genius with fujoshi tendencies who joins the club after Kodaka rescues her from a laboratory accident. Finally, Kodaka’s younger sister Kobato is in St. Chronica’s middle school division and is a fan of Gothic anime.
