Nendoroid Rem

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I spent the weekend at home getting to know my air conditioning better! We’ve moved into the late Summer and the heat is quite unbearable at the moment! The hot days are due to continue for awhile, so make sure to drink plenty of liquids and look after your body! Especially if you’re going to Comiket this weekend!!

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

From the anime series ‘Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World-‘ comes a Nendoroid of Rem, one of the maids at the Roswaal mansion. Her cute maid uniform has been carefully converted into Nendoroid size and her standard expression is based on the scene where she first met Subaru and had a bit of an untrusting, cold gaze. She also comes with a smiling expression for much more cheerful poses!

Her third expression is the memorable ‘oni’ expression from the series, and she also comes with alternate front hair parts with a horn in order to fully recreate the oni form. Her morning star is also included in two different forms – one with a static chain for dynamic action poses as well as one with a real chain. Enjoy all sorts of different sides of Rem with the Nendoroid!

The younger of the two maids that serve at the Roswaal mansion, Rem is joining the Nendoroids! ♥

Her calm and composed eyes and that cute yet defenceless mouth that is slightly open… her expression from the series has been captured so effectively in Nendoroid size! The slightly mysterious air about her character has also been preserved very nicely!

The purple flower-shaped ribbon in the hair as well as amazing frills on the white and black maid outfit have all been sculpted so beautifully!

The tailcoat design on the back also looks lovely! ♪

▲ The accessory around her neck is also lovely and detailed! ☆
Rem also comes with a variety of interchangeable arm parts such as bent arms allowing for more poses suited to her character! ε=(。・д・。)

▲This angle shows she does have quite a noticeable bosom!

At first Rem is the composed maid with a rather sharp tongue… but fans of the series will know she has various other expressions as well! So let’s move on to her second expression…
A lovely smiling expression! ♥

“Let’s start from here. From step one… no, from zero!”

This smile makes everything better!! (´□`。)

Just remembering this scene makes me feel all happy inside! But then we move onto the other side of Rem’s character… an expression to prove that she is an oni with incredible power!!

An Oni Expression! (/ω\)

Plus she also comes with alternate front hair parts with her oni horn showing to complete the transformation!

The hair not only has the horn, but also no longer completely covers up her left eye, faithfully recreating the change from her calm human form into the chaotic oni form!

Just look at those maddened eyes and the grinning expression!

Plus, her ‘morning star’ weapon comes in two different versions – one with the chain locked in place for some dynamic scenes of her swinging the chain around, as well as another with an actual chain that allows you to move the weapon around into all sorts of poses! 

▲ Posed with the weapon and her standard face recreates the ‘calm before the storm’ pose before she goes into oni mode! ♪

Enjoy Rem by your side in whatever pose you think suits her best! From the cool and composed maid, to a cute smiling Rem or the rampaging oni version! Be sure to add her to your collection!

Nendoroid Rem!

She’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!!

Be sure to check out the GSC Site for more information and official photos tomorrow!

Nendoroid Sasami Tsukuyomi

Hello everyone! Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

GSC has been on Summer break from Wednesday last week until today! I spent my break fighting off the mosquitoes by burning mosquito repellent incense sticks…

…and playing with some lovely reptilian friends! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

I hope everyone had a good time while I was away, whether you were on holiday or not! But anyway, let’s move onto today’s main topic…

A product being shipped out from GSC today…
Nendoroid Sasami Tsukuyomi!

Nendoroids are most often sculpted wearing their school uniforms, but Sasami-san is rather unique as she is wearing her cute pyjamas! Even within the GSC offices she has become quite popular for having a very unique feeling compared to most other Nendoroids!

Her box makes use of a gentle violet and light orange to match her outfit – it makes for a strangely relaxing color scheme!

This is how the packaging looks! Filled with optional parts to play with! (σ・∀・)σ

She even comes with an alternate lower body part to pose her sitting with her legs up, balancing her VAIYO laptop on her knees!

Here we have Sasami-san looking a little tired after watching her brother for too long. Even her curly bed hair has been faithfully recreated in Nendoroid form – and she even comes with a detachable ahoge for when you pose her without the hat!

The patterns all over her pyjamas have also been faithfully shrunk down to Nendoroid size! Apparently this was a rather difficult task for the production team!

Right, now it’s time to have some fun! ε=(。・д・。)

Seen she is wearing pyjamas, the first character I thought to swap parts with was another character that shares a tired expression – Nendoroid Frau Koujiro! ♪

Even her hair color and eyes match!
They must be sisters!! ( ゚д゚ )

It’s almost unbelievable how well these two match up with each other! Even the fact that they’re both computer experts matches!! ♪

Next up…!

“I-It’s not like I’m doing this for you!!”

I couldn’t resist making a pose like this!! ヾ(´∀`*)

This expression comes from Nendoroid Yui Takamura, and suits Sasami-san perfectly! I’ve been waiting to make this pose since I saw the prototype! <●><●>

We also have Nendoroid Kyon: Disappearance Ver. taking the role of Sasami-san’s brother, Kamiomi! But there are still more poses that I was looking forward too…

Like this depressed looking Sasami-san!

Just by changing the pose and angle a bit, the sleepy expression can become more of a depressed expression just like this! ( ・д・)/

You can even pose her fending off a Mikudayo invasion!

It seems that Mikudayo has multiplied!
We may not have much longer before she starts to take over…!

Aah! This is so much fun!!

It’s nice to have a sample instead of a prototype as I don’t need to worry about breaking it too much!

Today I’m also told that Tsukkii from the manufacturing team has something to show everyone! Let’s see what he has to say! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ

*Manufacturing Team Summon: Tsukkii*

(・∀・) “I thought I’d let everyone know that the T1 of Hatsune Miku: Deep Sea Girl ver arrived at GSC yesterday!

W-What?! Really?!

(・∀・) “That’s the very first sample that comes from the factories, so everyone here can confirm there are no problems.”

…I don’t suppose I could take some photos? <●> <●>

(・∀・) “Mmm… it’s really still in mid-development, so only some parts!”

That’s enough for now!! ≦(o・⊥・o)≧

Here we go, a look at the T1 of Miku: Deep Sea Girl ver! ♪

Ooh, transparent coral?!

Apparently that is still one of the things under consideration – what to use in order to keep a coral-like texture while still being mass producible! Obviously the final product will be fully painted, so don’t worry about that! (`・ω・´)

The frilly dress already looks amazing!!

The gentle, twisty feeling really looks just like something underwater! I can’t wait to get my hands on the final product version!! ワク(゚∀゚≡゚∀゚)ワク

As soon as I get more info I’ll be passing it on to everyone!

Nendoroid Strength: TV ANIMATION Ver.

Hello everyone!

For awhile I’ve always believed that hoods have the amazing ability to increase the moe level of any character, and hopefully today’s blog will help prove that to everyone!! Here’s s simple character with a hood plus extra long ‘moe’ sleeves… don’t you look at this and feel like you want to protect the cuteness?

… and in the background we have Akiyama peering in like some kind of ghost…!

゚・*:.。..。.:*・゚゚・*:.。..。.:*・゚ ゚・*:.。..。.:*・゚゚・*:.。..。.:*・゚ ゚・*:.。..。.:*・゚゚・*:.。..。.:*・゚

Today I’ll be taking a look at this lovely hooded Nendoroid!!

Giant mechanical arms and a black hood?
I can only think of one character that has those, which is of course…

Nendoroid Strength: TV ANIMATION Ver.!!

goodsmile company Mikatan&#39;s Blog English Version

From the series that aired during Fuji TV’s noitaminA block ‘Black Rock Shooter’ comes a Nendoroid of the newly designed version of Strength, the character with glaring red eyes who always keeps her mouth hidden with a hood!

Her powerful gigantic ‘Ogre Arms’ are included and are articulated at the fingers for all sorts of different poses – there are a total of four of these gigantic hands to attach, creating some amazing volume! You can even swap out the fingertips to change them into gun barrels and then make use of the included effect parts to recreate epic combat scenes in Nendoroid size!

She’s the 5th Nendoroid from the Black Rock Shooter TV anime, and just like all the previous Nendoroids from the series she is packed with optional parts and extras – she comes with four Ogre Arms giving her an incredible amount of volume! (゚∀゚)

Here is a comparison of the original Nendoroid Strength’s Ogre Arm with the TV ANIMATION ver.’s Ogre Arm! (The lower one is the newer TV ANIMATION Ver.!)

You can even switch out the fingers with gun barrels! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ

The gun barrel parts insert into place securely and easily which is wonderful for clumsy people like myself!

The pattern on her outfit has also become a lot more detailed and complex when compared to the previous Strength, but these are not the only part of her that has been upgraded…


Just like her Ogre arms, her tail has also been made bigger and cooler looking! ♥

Let’s get the head planner for this figure and see what he has to say about it!

*Planning Team Summon: Otanaka-shi *

(・∀・) “The main thing I want everyone to pay attention to is definitely the four Ogre Arms! We really aimed to make them just like the arms from the series!”

(・∀・) “The insane expression that was also seen as a part on the recently announced figma is also included with the Nendoroid! It’s definitely one expression that just had to be included in order to recreate the TV anime version of Strength!”

Being able to pose Strength in her mad pose really is a lovely option!

I couldn’t resist the urge to put the expression on someone else, so I had Nendoroid Sayaka Miki try it on!(ΦωΦ)フフフ

(・∀・) “Next in the works is Black Gold Saw, and we’re making sure that she’ll meet everyone’s expectations! If you’re a fan of the series you definitely have something to look forward to!”

Ooh!! ヾ(@°▽°@)ノ

I get the feeling Black Gold Saw will come out looking gorgeous!! She is such a lovely combination of cute and epic!

Nendoroid Strength: TV ANIMATION Ver.!!

She’s up for preorder as of today!!
