Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I really feel like going to Kyoto!! I met with a friend from my university in Kyoto the other day and now I really want to go visit!!
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at ORANGE ROUGE’s latest figure!
The 1/8th Scale…
|From the popular browser game ‘Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-‘ comes a 1/8th scale figure of Yamatonokami Yasusada based on his standard standing pose from the game.His calm and collected expression, graceful stance and equipment painted to retain its lacquered appearance have all been faithfully recreated in figure form, bringing the charm of Yamatonokami Yasusada to fans to enjoy by their side! Be sure to add him to your collection!|
“I am Yamatonokami Yasusada.
Not easy to handle, but a good sword.”
That blue and white haori coat and gentle expression from the original illustration has been preserved perfectly!! The sword was originally owned by the Shinsengumi captain, Okita Souji – Yamatonokami Yasusada is becoming a 1/8th scale figure!
His gentle looking blue eyes, eyebrows with a strong will behind them, the beauty spot under his left eye… and that cute smiling mouth that makes me imagine his voice!! All the charms from the game have been faithfully preserved in figure form for fans to enjoy! The different textures of the outfit have also been beautifully crafted!! (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧
Let’s see how he looks from the back! ♪
The front of his hair is sticking out to the sides, and the ponytail made in the image of a Pomeranian’s tail looks so lovely and fluffy from the back! While the pose is just a rather simple standing pose, the sculpt of his haori and hair wafting about in the wind gives the figure a lovely feeling of motion! (´□｀｡)
They say he is a sword that is not easy to handle, but the gentle and quiet expression on his face makes me think that he would be so easy to get along with! ♪
However! No matter how gentle he may appear, there are elements that clearly capture his masculine side as well!
Let’s start off with a simple example… (*´Д｀)=з
His neatly, short cut nails and somewhat bony fingers… not to mention the size of the hand itself!
This angle really makes the hand look so nice and manly!! Another part that has a rather masculine feel for me is his neck muscles! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
You can only get a glimpse of the neck through the scarf, but those muscles look so perfect!! They’re not huge or anything, but they are sticking out just enough to notice them!
Speaking of details… take a look at the tufty accessory on his front, or crests on his hands or the lacquered appearance of his chest armor…
Or the woven, thick appearance of his Japanese sandals…
Even the smallest accessories and details are so intricately sculpted!
As usual, the details on the sword itself – the scabbard, guard and grip are all amazing to look at as well! ♥︎
Plus looking from this angle you can see up his sleeve – the layer of clothing beneath the haori has also been sculpted! This kind of angle was never seen on the original illustration, showing you just one of the many new discoveries you can have when you change from a 2D illustration into a figure!! (´□｀｡)
The long arm covers that also cover up most of his hand even include the rings that go around his thumb and middle fingers! ♪
Be sure to add him to your collection and enjoy his charm whenever you like!
