Nendoroid Aya Shameimaru & Comiket Notice

Hello everyone! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

The battleground of the Summer Comiket is almost here!

I’m actually going to be taking part in a different event over the weekend! More details about that tomorrow! ★

But today I’ll be looking a look at a Nendoroid that suits the upcoming Comiket…

Nendoroid Aya Shameimaru!!

goodsmile company Mikatan's Blog English Version

From the popular game series by Shanghai Alice, the ‘Touhou Project’ comes a Nendoroid of Gensokyo’s resident reporter, Aya Shameimaru! She comes with a standard expression, smiling expression and even the popular “Take it easy!” expression is included!

Optional parts include her leaf fan and a tornado part to recreate her ability to control the wind! She also comes with her camera, pen and notepad to report on anything she comes across! Enjoy recreating your favorite situations from the series!

Aya is the 12th Nendoroid from the Touhou Project!!っ☆

Gensokyo’s adorable reporter, always running around to find the latest scoops! There are so many lovely little parts to play with as well! o(^▽^)o

You can pose her collecting information for her reports!


“Hey, where’d you got that yummy looking yakitori…?”

One of the big differences between the Nendoroid Petite version and this version is that her wings are also included!

A little crow is also included, so be sure to display it beside her! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

Her hair is sculpted in such a way that dynamic poses are easy!

The angle of the wings can be adjusted too!

The wings each move allowing you to get them at whatever angle you need for your poses!

This is just a prototype, so it’s currently making use of a metal rod – but it’ll be normal plastic on the final product! Another thing to note is that the accessory on her head can also be moved around, allowing for poses that are perfect for someone who can control the winds! ♥

Let’s see what the planner has to say about the highlights of today’s figure!

(・∀・) “The highlight of this figure for me is the tornado part!”

(・∀・) “It’s perfect for recreating poses of Aya using her wind powers! It also looks great posed with the leaf fan!”


Hmm… why is there a hole on top of the tornado? (°Д°;≡°Д°;)

(・∀・) “Ooh! I’m glad you noticed!

“This hole allows you to attach a Nendoroid head to the tornado, trapping your favorite character in Aya’s spell!”

R-Really?!

Let me give it a go with Nendoroid Cirno’s head! ♪

This opens up so many possibilities!

There are so many characters I want to try putting in here! ε=(。・д・。)

(・∀・) “Also… I probably shouldn’t say this but… certain Nendoroid hip joints can also fit inside!”

Hoho… now that sounds rather interesting! (<〇> <〇>)

As it means that you can do this!!


I had to cover it up a bit else I’ll get in trouble for sure… (・ω<;)★

(・∀・) “Oh, and another part that can’t be forgotten…

…is the ‘Take it easy’ face!”


It looks just like the original!

(・∀・) “This expression is bound to fit nicely on various other Nendoroids as well, so be sure to play around with it on some of your favorites!”

I hope I don’t get into trouble for this… but let’s try it on Nendoroid Sakura Miku!

…… ヽ(;´ω`)ノ
(I can feel to cold stares of everyone else in the offices for doing this to Miku…)

As you can see, Aya comes with all sorts of goodies to enjoy!!
