Let’s head into the kitchen! ♫
Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I can honestly say I have never made croquettes in my life! I’m bad at cooking in the first place, and everyone says deep-fried foods are never easy! Either way, today we’re going to be taking a look at a character who was brought up eating croquettes!
Nendoroid Mako Mankanshoku! ♡
|From the popular anime series ‘Kill la Kill’ comes a Nendoroid of Ryuko’s close friend with a rather excitable personality, Mako Mankanshoku! Mako is well known for her creative expressions, and so she comes with four different expression parts including her standard face, a smiling face, a serious face and a sleepy face!
Her comical appearance and personality has been faithfully converted into Nendoroid form, and she even comes with special bendable arms allowing for all the weird and wonderful poses that she takes in the series! The Mankanshoku family’s pet dog ‘Guts’ is also included to display alongside her, and she’ll surely be very excited if you were to display her together with Ryuko-chan!
Even Mako-chan gets to be a Nendoroid! Yay! ヽ(ｏ´∀｀ｏ)ﾉ
The second Kill la Kill Nendoroid following on from from Nendoroid Ryuko Matoi who was just announced last week! It wouldn’t be the Mankanshoku family without some croquettes to display beside her! ♡
Well to be more specific… the Mankanshoku Mama’s famous ‘croquette-like food with rather strange things inside’! At the very least there is never any poison inside! (ﾟＡﾟ;)
*Mako showing her excitement for croquettes*
The little Guts with his big face and cute bottom is also included! ♪
He’s such a nice size – he looks great posed with figmas and scale figures too!
But these croquettes… they actually have a rather important role in the story! I can’t believe that this week is the last episode!! (´=ω=｀)
*Mako-chan and Guts fighting over croquettes*
… Ah! ( ﾟдﾟ)
I’ve been focusing so much on the croquettes and Guts… but looking back now…
(・∀・) “She comes with loads of expressions!!”
We’re joined by Kyojin from the planning team!
(・∀・) “First up is her standard face, but she also comes with a smiling face and the serious face that you just showed!
I’m sure I’ve seen this serious face before…
(・∀・) “You’re probably remembering this rather famous pose!”
Ah…! The “Take ’em all off!” pose!! Σ(ﾟ∀ﾟﾉ)ﾉ!!
(・∀・) “Yep! The rather bizarre pose she choose to take when making her appearance in episode three! The arm parts are actually rather unique too – they’re made to be bendable allowing for much more control over their position… and even more Mako-like poses!”
Ooh! That sounds like fun! Let me try bending them a bit…! (｡ゝω・｡)ゞ
(；・∀・) “W-Wait!! … the material used on the prototype is still hard! They’ll just break!!”
That’s something you might want to mention first next time! That was a close one… for now you’ll just have to picture alternate bent arm poses in your mind!
(・∀・) “Bent legs are also included for this pose – and can be used for various other things too!”
*Yay! bent legs are always so useful!*
By the way…. it feels like Mako’s neck joint is more… movable than normal?
(・∀・) “Fufufu… that would be a special extra put in place to allow for this pose!”
She can even be posed jumping toward Ryuko!
(・∀・) “From the very start of the planning this was once pose I really wanted to be able to have in Nendoroid form – it required a bit of tweaking to the standard Nendoroid neck joint, but it all came out working really well! It also makes posing her together with Ryuko all the more fun!”
I can’t wait to display the two of them together…! （*´▽｀*）
Anyway, she’ll be up for preorder from…
Eh? There’s still more?! (((゜д゜;)))
(｀・ω・) “There are still more expressions to show!!”
B-but we’ve already had three…?
(・∀・) “Mako-chan can’t have only three expressions!”
She also comes with this Napping Expression!”
Drool! Drool and a nose bubble! (°Д°；≡°Д°；)
(・∀・) “The nose bubble was another thing I really wanted to include! The problem was how to attach it!”
Hmm… now that you mention it… how do you attach it?! (ﾟＡﾟ;)
(・∀・) “It actually connects into the back of her front hair parts!”
To think that a nose bubble would actually connect to the hair! It looks very natural though!
(・∀・) “I think this kind of sleepy-drooling face is also a first in Nendoroid history!”
Without the nose bubble she still looks super content sleeping in my mug!
(・∀・) “You displayed her with Ryuko earlier… but she’ll actually have some other friends to display her with soon too!”
*Those who have watched the series might also recognise this*
However it may be lacking a bit of volume on the chest area…
Combining Nendoroid is so much fun… particularly when they actually match up! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
*Senketsu: “Mako, please wake up!! The drool… it’s getting closer!!”*
There really are endless ways to enjoy Nendoroids! ♡
(・∀・) “I think these are some of the comical expressions we’ve had for Nendoroids! They’re a lot of fun, and I hope everyone will enjoy them!”
Lots of fun! ♪ Even more so displayed with Ryuko-chan!!
Nendoroid Mako Mankanshoku!
She’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!!
T-There’s still more?! っ((((；ﾟДﾟ))))
(・∀・) “One more expression!”
(・∀・) “This one! A beat-up expression!”
The expression from her punishment in episode 2!! ( ﾟ-ﾟ)( ﾟﾛﾟ)(( ﾛﾟ)ﾟ((( ﾛ)~ﾟ ﾟ
(・∀・) “Yep! This isn’t actually a full expression though – it connects the same way as the nose bubble!”
It looks… rather painful…
But wait… that basically means that Mako comes with five different expression choices?! (｀・ω・´)
(・∀・)”Not quite! This beat-up expression part is actually a preorder bonus for orders from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP!“
…!!! (ﾟдﾟ )
(・∀・) “Yep… all things taken into consideration, the 5th expression had to be included as an extra only!”
Definitely the first ever Nendoroid expression of it’s kind! Don’t miss out!
*All four other expression parts are included with other orders
