Good day to you all!
It’s me, Kaho-tan! (＠gsc_kahotan)
Did I ever tell you that I love girls with glasses?
And for this very reason, even now I fondly remember interviewing at an optometrist after graduating from university… !
Moving on – today we’ll be taking a look at
|From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-’ comes a Nendoroid of the 4th Kongo-class battleship, Kirishima! She comes with both a microphone and a megaphone to represent her famous ‘mike check’ introduction line from the game!Various shooting effect parts are also included to chase down her enemies, and once she has caught up she also comes with punching effect parts for some close combat! Type 3 Shell’s are also included, along with the bullets inside the shells for even more effect! Last but not least, she also comes with a sofa to display her relaxing at tea time with her sisters!|
The youngest of the 4 Kongo-Class sisters – Kirishima is so cute and chibi!
Black hair, short cut, glasses – easily her 3 best features brought forth in all their majesty in Nendoroid form♥︎
And the shrine maiden style attire worn by all the sisters is simply perfect as well!
Alright, let’s spin her around for a peek from behind… |oﾟдﾟ）
Just like Hiei, her armament has an “x-shaped arm” design for a wide range of movement.
And at the base at each of the 4 arms is a Nendoroid joint, allowing for vertical, horizontal, diagonal, and pretty much any kind of movement φ(．． )
The artillery portions pivot on an axle, so you can spin them around to aim in any direction!
Now let’s take a look at her accessories!
This is Kirishima, after all! So she wouldn’t be complete without a microphone to recreate her mic-check pose!
Imagine that the armament behind her is speakers, and she looks kind of like a TV announcer, doesn’t she… !
On top of that! In addition to the mic, we’ve also added one of these! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
If you equip it together with her gallant expression, you can have Kirishima acting as the “brains of the battleships,” giving orders to the fleet ♡
Kirishima is sure to prefer the voice projection of the megaphone over the microphone as well… !
But, you can also give that valiant stance a 180… (｀・ω・´)
If you combine her distressed half-damaged expression together with her munitions and guns ablaze, you have Kirishima in the midst of heated battle!
She looks so brave, I love it… ! (Kaho’s inner voice)
And depending on the angle, it could look like she’s about to throw the anti-aircraft shells clutched in her hands (*ﾟｰﾟ*)
That’s not all! Just as all of you were keen to notice, the anti-aircraft shells of course
have mid-explosion versions included as well!
When moving into offensive mode, it seems more like a battlefield scene ♪
(・∀・) “And speaking of special effects, check this out!”
I know this is sudden and all, but allow me to introduce Planning Director Kyojin!
(・∀・) “Inspired by the actual history of the Kirishima, which on a few occasions was used as a weapon itself to ram other ships in battle, I decided to include this punching effect part!”
…Very feminine (very physical)!
A close combat version using the recoil from her cannons to pack that extra punch… all I can say is I should have known(/ω＼)
(・∀・) “Of all the Kan-Colle girls, isn’t Shimakiri the only one that could come with a punch effect?”
Oh, right! Kirishima is one of the 4 Kongo sisters, so…
(・∀・) “Of course she will! Here it is!!”
No way, is that a sofa!!! (°Д°；≡°Д°；)
(・∀・) “The seat portion slides forward, so you can insert the flowing cloth portions on the back of her costume inside the gap.”
So that’s how it works! Inserting the back layers of her costume into the gap acts a a support to make her sit firmly in place on the sofa (*´Д｀)=з
(・∀・) “As the back layers of her costume are fixed in place, I think this design allows for the end user to enjoy more stress-free posing. “
And if she were to join Kongo and Heiei, their tea party would become even more extravagant… !
And it seems that “Nendoroid Haruna,” who will complete the sisters, is going to come with so many amazing accessories, too – I know we all can’t help but wait with baited breath!
(・∀・) “We discussed this a bit during the live broadcast, but the reason that Shimakiri was released after Hiei is because… We haven’t quite finished designing Haruna yet… !”
That really speaks of Admiral Kyoji’s passion! Don’t you think! Σ(･ω･ﾉ)ﾉ
(・∀・) “Unfortunately, that is the case. I’m sure a lot of people were really concerned about it, but we all know it’s in good hands! And she’s in development as we speak!”
I’m really looking forward to the day when all 4 Kongo sisters can be together ♪
(・∀・) “One last thing! We’ve made Shimakiri’s trademark glasses so that you can take them off. “
To think – you can finally see what she looks like without her glasses!
This is a rare glimpse seldom seen ＜○＞＜○＞
(・∀・) “And in addition to the glasses with lenses that you see here, we also plan to include glasses that are just the frames! You’ll probably find different purposes for each, so we hope you’ll just roll with it and have fun.”
With so many accessories that really show off her personality, enjoy putting her in all sorts of situations!
Available for preorder from the afternoon of (Mon) Dec. 22!
