Today we will be taking a look at…
Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
Recently I can’t seem to hold myself back from touching soft and fluffy looking things. Anyway, today we’re going to be taking a look at:
Nendoroid Aoba & Ren! ♪
|From the PC game ‘DRAMAtical Murder’ comes a Nendoroid of the main character, Aoba! He comes with three expressions including his standard face, a mischievous smiling face and the embarrassed face that he occasionally shows in the game.
He also comes with an alternate shift body and headphones allowing you to display him in the pose from the soundtrack CD jacket. His dog-type ‘ALL-MATE’ Ren is also included to display beside him, so be sure to enjoy both of them by your side in cute Nendoroid size!
The adorable Aoba is sitting on my desk in Nendoroid form! （*´▽｀*）
He is from the hugely popular game that will soon become an anime series too, DRAMAtical Murder!! His characteristic outfit has been shrunk down to Nendoroid size perfectly! ♪
Even the marking on his shoulder has been faithfully included! His headphones and belt are also made to look just like the original, even in chibi size!
Ren has an articulated neck and tail allowing for slight changes in his pose too! The two of them together make for such a lovely scene! (o・ω・o)
(・∀・) “Apologies for the delay everyone!!”
Today we’re joined by the figure’s planner, Oono-shi!!
(・∀・) “There are a load of things I want to share with everyone about this Nendoroid… but there are three things in particular, so I’ll go with those!”
Oono-shi’s eyes… they’re sparkling with excitement!!
1) Expressions that capture Aoba’s playful and cute sides!
(・∀・) “Along with a standard expression, Aoba also comes with a bit of a mischievous grin!”
Ooh! Aoba’s character comes through beautifully with this expression! I’m sure it’ll suit all sorts of poses too! ﾍ(ﾟ∀ﾟ*)ﾉ
(・∀・) “There is another expression that works for various poses too! Ta-da!”
(・∀・) “The most powerful of them all! His embarrassed expression – it has a cute appeal to it, but still captures Aoba’s charm!”
The slighty unsure look in his eyes is perfect!
(・∀・) “Speaking of his eyes… they have also been Nendoroised as close to the original as possible – golden with an every so slight blue on the sides!”
It’s always lovely to see the detail that is put into getting the characters as close to the original as possible! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
2) Posing based on game’s jacket cover
(・∀・) “The included optional parts allow for the pose on the game cover to be made in Nendoroid form!”
I wanted to recreate the scene on the beach too…! ♡
(・∀・) “Aoba is great for photos… and if you take him out with you, you can easily recreate the various areas from the game too!”
3) Shift body! ♥
(・∀・) “Finally we have… this!”
I-Is this what I think it is?! (ﾟＡﾟ;)
(・∀・) “Yep! A special ‘shift body’ included to recreate the pose on the soundtrack jacket cover! ♡”
(・∀・) “The very first Nendoroid body to go shirtless!”
This… has never been revealed before this blog, has it!
How did you manage to keep it a secret?!
(・∀・) “We wanted to add something that really made Aoba, Aoba!”
Also just look at the detail on his headphones… and the gradient of his longer hair! The alternate body and hair can also be used with other expressions too… allowing for poses like this!! ＜●＞＜●＞
I never thought I’d get to enjoy Nendoroid Aoba like this!!!
*Rin is balanced very carefully on Aoba’s arm here. This isn’t by design. ^^;
Alternate body, hair and lovely expressions… not to mention Ren! There is so much fun to be had with this Nendoroid!! ♡
I’m not sure how I would choose to display him myself… (； ･`ω･´)
(・∀・) “Aoba’s unique charm has been shrunk into Nendoroid form for all to enjoy! Plus Ren of course! Whether you want to play or just display, Aoba is great for both!”
Nendoroid Aoba & Ren! ♪
(・∀・) “Which is also his birthday!!”
Ooh! Oono-shi even plans the announce dates in advance!! ε=(｡・д・｡)
