Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I might still not have Mikazuki Munechika in game, but I get to take a look at his Nendoroid which will definitely keep me busy for now!

So without any more delays, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika

“My name is Mikazuki Munechika.
One of the five great swords of Japan”

From the popular PC browser game ‘Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the most beautiful of the Five Great Swords, Mikazuki Munechika! He comes with three expressions including a standard face with a charming smile, an expression for combat as well as a nonchalant expression made in the image of his ‘ojiichan’ nickname!

His sword is included and can be displayed both sheathed and drawn, and the scabbard faithfully shows off the phases of the moon! Other optional parts include a traditional Japanese teacup for more relaxed scenes, as well as an ‘uchiko’ which is needed to keep your swordsmen ready for battle! Be sure to add him to your collection!

Wonderful! Wonderful!!! (*´Д`)=з

An apology to all the saniwa out there who have been waiting for the Nendoroid to come up for preorder! One of the Five Great Swords of Japan as well as the one known to be the most beautiful… Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika is finally here! The spirit of the sword made at the end of the 11th century in the Heian Period has joined the Nendoroids!

This is also one of the fastest a Nendoroid has ever started development! Nendoroid Mikazuki started being sculpted just one month after the game had started (´□`。)

Let’s see how he looks from the back! ♥

You never get to see him from the back in game, which means the figure adds a whole new side of Mikazuki to enjoy!! ♪

His soft and silky looking hair is definitely one of my highlights!Another thing to note is the scabbard that shows the phases of the moon along it! Isn’t it beautiful! (`・ω・´)ゞ

Also take a look at how the outfit was shrunk down into Nendoroid size – even in this small size the elegant outfit very reminiscent of the nobles in the Heian period has been carefully sculpted down to the smaller little ornaments!

It’s an outfit with an incredible amount of information and detail placed into it – as one would expect for the ‘most beautiful’ of the Five Great Swords, Mikazuki Munechika! The overall balance of the figure is also such a pleasure to look at!

The ever so slight creases along the outfit are also amazing! They add even more to the distinct atmosphere of the classic Japanese clothes!

Note of course his eyes which are actually crescent moons, as well as the slight gradient applied to the tips of his hair!

All of Mikazuki’s intricate little charms have been so carefully added to the Nendoroid! As most of you know all Nendoroids stand about 10cm in height, but there is something about the air around Mikazuki that makes him seem to stand out so much more clearly and confidently! I hope that fans will be willing to add him into their collections! <○><○>

Anyway, let’s move on and see what other optional parts are included with him! Firstly along with the standard expression above, he also comes with this relaxed and content expression! This expression is included to display his more carefree side that suits his nickname ‘ojiichan’ or ‘grandpa’!

A nonchalant expression!! 

Just looking at him makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!!

I wish I could sit out on a balcony and sip tea with him while looking out at the cherry blossoms!! 

The first expression shows him off as the elegant and beautiful sword he his, but this one shows a different side of him! He also comes with another extra part that suits this expression very well!

“Ah… I love being taken good care of!”

He comes with an ‘uchiko’!

These were used in the past to keep swords in good condition, and can be used to keep the Nendoroid happy as well!

△ With careful balance he can even hold it himself…!

Just as a side note, the uchiko is not actually soft, it’s made from the same material as the figure itself… so be sure to only touch it to him softly! (`・ω・´)ゞ

Now that We’ve seen the gentle side of him… let’s move onto the next expression…

An expression that shows off his gallant side!

 

“…let’s do this.”

Ooooooooooohh!! (/ω\)

It’s perfect! I can’t get enough of how amazing he looks!!

This confident and valiant looking combat expression is also included!

△ The combat pose from the game can also be recreated! 

Once again the change of expression brings across a whole different side of his personality! Don’t you feel an enormous pressure behind this combat pose?! I certainly do! (°Д°;≡°Д°;)

As you can see, his sword can also be displayed unsheathed using the included alternate parts! 

△ Posed in a “Come, if you dare” kind of pose!

I’ve been trying to keep my excitement down as much as possible for this review but it’s so hard!!

The reason for that is I want to have lots to talk about during tomorrow’s like broadcast!

The long awaited start of the Touken Ranbu Nendoroids!

The next two are also already in development – Kashuu Kiyomitsu and Kogitsunemaru! ★

△ I’ll let you know more about this two as soon as I know! ☆

 

Both beautiful, elegant and ready for combat!
