Shiro and Nendoroid Jibril (No Game No Life)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’ve always has a bit of a secret interest in chess. I wish I could get the change to say “checkmate” one day…

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a a look at…
The 1/8th Scale Shiro! ☆

From the anime series “No Game No Life” comes a 1/8th scale figure of the younger of the ‘Blank’ gamer siblings – Shiro! She has been sculpted holding a playing card in one hand and chess pieces in the other with a playful smile on her face that shows she is not worried about the competition.

Each and every strand of her hair has been carefully sculpted and painted with a brilliant gradient seen in the original illustration to capture her iconic appearance in figure form. The playing cards and chess pieces all around her are all a part of the figure and base, and the base itself is patterned like a chessboard to fully bring out the No Game No Life atmosphere! Be sure to add the peerless gamer to your collection and enjoy her company whenever you please!

“Omega good job!”

From the “No Game No Life” film that starts in Japan this weekend comes a scale figure of Shiro! The transparent, flowing image of the original illustration has been captured…

in beautiful…

intricate…

…amazing detail!!

▲ The little sticking out tongue is so cute!!

Each and every strand of her hair has been sculpted in such detail!

Not to mention the way the colors differ depending on the angle you look from!

The appearance of the gradient has been carefully calculated from each angle…

To faithfully preserve the beautiful colors of her hair no matter what angle you look from! (`;ω;´)

The figure has been sculpted by Good Smile Company’s Kataharaitashi! The same sculptor who has worked on various Nendoroids such as Nendoroid Elsa, as well as scale figures such as Nico Yazawa: Picnic Girl!

All the figures have the feeling of “motion” captured so beautifully!

The paintwork was by Good Smile Company’s Ekoshi! ♡

Some examples of past work include Hatsune Miku V4X as well as various work on the LoveLive! Nendoroid series and much more!

Working with colors to bring a sculpt to life is not an easy task, but all the figure by Ekoshi have such a lively, beautiful feeling about them!!

Anyway, let’s get back to Shiro! ヽ(゚∀゚ヽ 三 ノ゚∀゚)ノ

▲ Look at the creases in her skirt and shiny look of her socks! ♪

The cards all floating around Shiro are of course attached to her hair, but the positions are very carefully thought out so that it all looks perfectly natural and they really do look like they are floating in the air around her! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ

A quick size comparison with an iPhone6!

The figure is only 1/8th scale, but the impressive volume of the hair gives an impressive size, and the atmosphere of the series is captured in the base so effectively!! There is so much to enjoy at once! I only noted the cards above, but there are also chess pieces at the bottom of the base!

They are all very carefully positioned and sculpted with a specific feeling of motion to all come together and complete the dynamic appearance of the figure!

I alerady touched on the cute sticking-out tongue earlier, but also note the dainty hand holding the chess pieces! ★

Even her fingernails have each been carefully sculpted!

Plus each of her nails are also painted with a slightly different color!! The fact that they are sculpted slightly grown out is also so amazing! _:(´ཀ`」∠):_

The product planner who is also a big fan of the series, Hamako, made some playing cards based on the design of the figure! I decided to borrow them and use them for an image cut! ★

▲ Some glass chess pieces as well! ♪

It really is one of those figures that can be enjoyed from absolutely any angle!! You won’t be disappointed if you choose to add her to your collection!! I highly recommend it!

The 1/8th Scale Figure Shiro!

She’ll be up for preorder tomorrow!

Be sure to keep your eyes on the Good Smile Company website for more information! Plus Shiro is not the only figure going up for preorder tomorrow…

Nendoroid Jibril!

From the anime series “No Game No Life” comes a Nendoroid of Jibril, the youngest and strongest of the Flugel race! Even as a Nendoroid the beautiful gradient colors of her hair have been faithfully preserved, and her large wings look as angelic as ever.

She comes with three face plates including a standard smart looking face, a scornful smile as well as an excited expression for when she can’t control her desires. Optional parts include a book, a tablet as well as a large selection of arm and leg parts to create various scenes from the series! Enjoy the small and adorable Jibril in your collection!

“You would challenge me to a game? With human bodies?”

Even in Nendoroid size, the gradient color of her hair has been faithfully preserved! ♪

▲Her wings are fitted with joints to be placed at various different angles!

Along with the intelligent looking smile above, she also comes with a much colder looking smile! (´□`。)

▲ She also comes a book too!
Covering her mouth up makes for a rather different feel!

Moving on to her third face plate… ♡

An excited expression unable to control her desires! 

The sparkly eyes are so amazing!! You’ll also notice that she is so excited she is even drooling!!  ((´д`●))三((●´д`))

Plus if we look down at her feet…

It’s a little hard to see, but look at those lovely Nendoroid thighs!! (灬ºωº灬)

Plus if we look at the tablet she is holding…

You can see she is in fact looking at Nendoroid Shiro and Sora’s product page on the GSC site!!

In addition, preorders of Nendoroid Jibril from the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a Jibril’s Old Collection, a bonus Hand Part and a Black Halo as extras!! ♪

Nendoroid Kiyoshimo (Kantai Collection -KanColle-)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Nendoroid Kiyoshimo

From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the 19th Yugumo Class Destroyer, Kiyoshimo! She comes with three face plates including an energetic smile, a half-damaged expression with her cheeks puffed up as well as an excited expression with sparkling eyes. The front and back of her hair are painted with different colors to faithfully capture her original design.

Optional parts include various turret and torpedo firing effect parts as well as a depth charge with effect parts which allow her to take on all kinds of ships including submarines! In addition, she also comes with a yellow umbrella to recreate her “Rainy Season” illustration, as well as a box of throwing beans for her “Setsubun” illustration. Be sure to add the destroyer that wants to be a battleship to your collection!

“Isn’t it about time you make me into a battleship?”

The Yugumo Class Destroyer Kiyoshimo has been transformed into an adorable Nendoroid! As with all the previous KanColle Nendoroids her ship parts have been faithfully converted into Nendoroid size, together with her outfit – from the frilly dress to the ribbon on her chest!

The deep blue inside color of her hair together with its iconic twists and curls have all been faithfully included!

▲ The tied up part at the back is also lovely! (・∀・)

She comes with three face plates, the first of which being the cheerful smile you can see above, and the second is this half-damaged expression with tears in her eyes! (´□`。)

The usual effect parts are also included with turret firing parts and torpedo launching parts all ideal for combat scenes!

Another thing to note about this expression is that the one side of her cheek is all puffed up with air! (/ω\)

▲ Cute! So cute!! I just want to pet her!!

Plus along with the standard effect parts above, she also comes with a depth charge and depth charge splash effect part making her the ideal Nendoroid to take out submarines! ♪

▲ I love the splashing effect that gives a dynamic look!

Plus she also comes with this yellow umbrella to partially recreate her “Rainy Season” illustration! (∩・∀・)∩

Moving on to her third face plate… a sparkling eyes expression!

That glint in her eyes catches her curious personality perfectly! It works nicely with the umbrella parts too! ♪

*Playing swords with umbrellas is dangerous. Do not follow her example!

Last but not least…

“Evils out! Fortune in!”

She also comes with a box of setsubun beans to recreate her Setsubun illustration!

Here is a photo together with one of her battleship role models!

▲ Displayed with Nendoroid Musashi! (Released August 2016)

The sparkling eyes shows just how much she looks up to and admires the battleship!!

Nendoroid Ash & Pikachu (Pokémon)

Hello everyone!! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

The very first Mini CD I ever purchased was “To Be A Pokemon Master”. If I remember correctly the CD was made to look like a Poké Ball!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Nendoroid Ash & Pikachu!

From the popular anime series celebrating its 20th anniversary with a new movie, “Pokémon”, comes a Nendoroid of Ash Ketchum together with Pikachu! He has been sculpted in his original outfit from the beginning series, and comes with three different face plates including a smiling face, a more serious expression for Pokémon battles as well as a gentle smiling expression with closed eyes perfect for showing his close relationship with Pikachu!

His iconic hat can be worn both forward and backward with any of the face plates for all sorts of different display options. Pikachu also comes with both a standard face as well as a battle face allowing for various different scenes. Optional parts include a Poké Ball as well as lightning effect parts for Pikachu’s attacks. Enjoy the adorable Ash and Pikachu in your collection!

“Pikachu, I choose you!”

Apologies for the long wait since their announcement! The main character of the Pokémon series, “Ash”, is joining the Nendoroid series together with his first Pokémon, Pikachu! ★

His arms and tail are both fitted with a ball joint allowing them to moved into various different angles!

As you can see he also has a hole on his back which allows a stand to be attached for jumping poses together with Ash! ☆

▲ High Five! ☆

Although they might be best buddies now, back when they first met that wasn’t quite the case!

In order to recreate scenes like this Pikachu comes with electric effect parts which can be placed around Ash to make it look like he has been electricity!

In addition, Pikachu also comes with a battle face plate which can be used above as a bit of an angry expression, or can instead be used with Ash’s battle expression in order to pose the two of them ready for their next challenge! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

▲ They look perfectly in sync and ready for battle! ♪

Plus the Nendoroid also comes with a rather special option that might be a first on Nendoroids and suits the battle expression perfectly…

He can wear his cap backward and be posed about to throw a Poké Ball!!

The cap can be completed turned around and he also comes with an alternate front hair part to better suit the cap backward! Anyone who has seen the series will remember the scene where he spins his cap around making this a lovely nostalgic item!★

He also comes with a third face plate which is ideal for displaying him playing around with Pikachu – a gentle expression with closed eyes!

Using the included stand you can also pose Ash carrying Pikachu in his arms like above! The way their cheeks are just about touching shows just how close they two are!! This brings back so many memories! ♡

ANNOUNCEMENT TIME ★

This Nendoroid Ash & Pikachu will be the commemorative Nendoroid No. 800!!
