Top Blog Articles of 2015!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Yesterday I switched the bag I’m using for the first time in ages! I switched from a game console pattern to a feather patterns! (Not that I expect anyone can image what they look like with just that description…)

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look back at 2015, with a summary of the top ranking blog posts for last year!!

2015 had a lot of scale figures, Nendoroids and other standard GSC releases, but it was also the birth of new series and brands as as the Nendoroid Co-de series as well as ORANGE ROUGE!

Let’s see what items attracted the most attention!! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

      

★ 1st Place ★

Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika

The very first figure in the Touken Ranbu series received more views that any other post on the blog last year! The gentle yet awe-inspiring smile of Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika… I remember smiling all the time while taking photos of him for the blog as well!! (・∀・)

He also had an epic combat pose and expression…

 

As well as his relaxing, nonchalant expression… 

The ‘uchiko’ part to dust down the sword just made this pose even more enjoyable! His standard pose was amazing, but changing between different poses also allowed for so such fun to be had!!♪

★ 2nd Place ★

Mikazuki Munechika

Following on from the Nendoroid is none other than his scale figure counterpart!  The intricate design of his outfit and the almost glowing effect of the paintwork made for a figure that was really difficult to photograph… but even with my amateur photos he managed to reach the number two position! 

I remember the first time I saw the painted prototype and just gaped in awe for awhile as I could hardly believe how amazing he looked… (/ω\)

★ 3rd Place ★

Kagamine Rin: Tony Ver.

I expected nothing less than a figure based on one of Tony’s illustrations! This slightly more mature looking Rin-chan takes the bronze position!! The gentle colors and paintwork that reflects Tony’s style is one thing, but the dynamic pose and feeling of movement around her outfit really all comes together to make an outstanding figure! (●´ω`●)

Kagamine Len: Tony Ver

Following on from Rin can only be her handsome brother, Len! Looking into his beautiful eyes made me a little flustered, so a lot of my photos were taken avoiding his eyes! ^^; The masculine body was very faithfully preserved in the figure making the set of the two twins really stand out nicely! ☆

Utaha Kasumigaoka: A Closer Look!

There were too many things to show on this figure that I had to split it over two blogs! (σ・∀・)σ
Posed getting dressed there were quite a lot of sexy shots… some that were taken down repeatedly over on the Japanese blog…

Nendoroid Co-de: Sophie Hojo

– 7th Place –

Hatsune Miku: Greatest Idol Ver.

– 8th Place –

Nendoroid Kogitsunemaru

– 9th Place –

Nendoroid Tsurumaru Kuninaga

– 10th Place –

Kaori Miyazono

– 11th Place –

Shigure Kai Ni

– 12th Place –

Nendoroid Shokudaikiri Mitsutada

– 13th Place –

Nendoroid Ichigo Hitofuri

– 14th Place –

Nendoroid Petite: Touken Ranbu -ONLINE- 1st Squad

– 15th Place –

Nendoroid Umaru

There we have it!

The Touken Ranbu boys took up quite a lot of sports, but there were lots of other figures as well making for a nice variety of popular posts!!

I also think last year was a year where many people read their very first Kahotan Blog thanks to the Touken boys! I can hardly believe that I have already written over 500 blog posts now…

Anyway, this year is the Nendoroid 10th Anniversary and Good Smile Company 15th Anniversary!! Let’s make 2016 a year to remember!!

I’ll be sure to keep the blog updated with all sorts of new items for fans to look forward to! ( ・ㅂ・)و
