Nendoroid Patchouli Knowledge

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I had a rather busy and active weekend for the first time in ages. I guess it’s not such a bad thing to go outside and absorb some sunlight once in awhile…!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at:

Nendoroid Patchouli Knowledge!

From the popular game series by Team Shanghai Alice, the ‘Touhou Project’ comes a Nendoroid of Patchouli Knowledge, the magician with a weak constitution who keeps herself confined to the Scarlet Devil Mansion’s library.

She comes with three expressions including her standard face, a smiling face and a cute yawning expression. Optional parts include sitting parts, a book and even some glasses which suit her intellectual personality. You can also pose her holding the book to cover her mouth for a rather different appearance! Enjoy keeping the adorable Patchouli by your side!

Pache-san!!!! (´□`。)

Apologies to all the Touhou fans for the long wait!!

The adorable magician that confines herself to the Scarlet Devil Mansion’s library is joining the Nendoroids! ♡ Her cute frilly negligee outfit has been shrunk into Nendoroid size very nicely! Her lovely long hair filled with ribbons as well as her puffy hat also look lovely in Nendoroid size – the details are amazing! (σ・∀・)σ

△ The cute candy-like colors are so very colorful!

Believe it or not, this is actually the 14th Nendoroid from the Touhou Project! Let’s have a quick look through the Touhou Nendoroid history! ♪

★ Nendoroid Yuyuko Saigyouji

☆ Nendoroid Cirno

★ Nendoroid Alice Margatroid

☆ Nendoroid Fujiwara no Mokou

☆ Nendoroid Yukari Yakumo

Looking though all of them brings back memories!
There are a lot more than I thought!
 (I can’t wait to see who will be next!) 

Anyway, let’s get back to Pache-san! ヽ(゚◇゚ )ノ

As you can see, her nightcap can be completely removed!

Here she is without her hat, deep in concentration reading her book! She looks so lovely!! All the photos up to here have made use of her standard, calm expression… but she also comes with this one!  ♪

A sideways glance with a gentle smile! ♥︎

This expression gives her more of a mysterious charm! But she also comes with another item that fits with her library girl personality so very well!

Red frame glasses!!

Patchouli is also known as ‘The Unmoving Great Library’ and this pose captures that so nicely! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

(・∀・) “I wanted to bring out the intelligent side of Pache-san somehow, which led to these glasses being included!”

We’re joined by the figure’s planner,  Hamako!

(・∀・) “Plus to even further bring out her character, we also included sitting parts!”

Oooooooooohhhh!! (/ω\)

The way she is sitting is so adorable too!!

(・∀・) “I thought this way of sitting suited Pache-san’s cute looks best!” 

The mixture of the childish expression and mature expression… it’s such delicious contrast!! *nom* (●´ㅂ`●) *nom*

This expression suits the glasses really well too!

(・∀・) “Oh yes! There’s something I really wanted to point out about her expressions!”

Oh? What?! (°Д°;≡°Д°;)

(・∀・) “The smiling face you introduced a little earlier… if you block her mouth with the book you get a pose like this!!”

Without the smile… she looks rather annoyed…!

(・∀・) “Exactly! She may only have three expressions, but if you combine them the options like this book and the glasses, you end up with all sorts of options!”

I would never expect a smile to be hidden behind that book! She really seems to be glaring at me…!! (°д°;)

But hang on…. you said three expressions?! We’ve only seen two!

(・∀・) “Her third expression is this yawning expression!”

Another super cute expression!! ∀`*)

(・∀・) “The calm and composed Pache-san looks lovely, but sometimes its fun to catch her off guard in a naturally cute pose like this one! Time for bed!”

She looks so defenceless…!!
She also suddenly seems like someone I would get along with really well… 

(・∀・) “Be sure to add he to your own collection and enjoy all the different sides of Pache-san!”

Nendoroid Cirno

Phew! Found it!


I’ve been running around all evening searching for this figure… when I tweeted that I couldn’t find it someone even replied “She’s finally gone and lost a master figure”… But look! I found it! I shall never lose one!

I guess I shouldn’t be all that proud about it though… it took me ages to find… :/


But anyway, today we’re going to take a look at…

The 9th Nendoroid in the Touhou series:

Nendoroid Cirno!

Cirno is the ‘Ice Fairy of the Lake’ from Shanghai Alice’s popular game series the ‘Touhou Project’, and she is now also the 9th Nendoroid to join the Touhou series!

This is how she looks from the back!

As I mentioned above, Cirno is an ice fairy!

The wings on her back are made of a beautiful clear plastic just like Flandere’s were. If you look really close you can also see they have a very faint blue tint to them… it’s beautiful!


Her “I’m the best!” pose!

This kind of confident smile really suits Cirno best! She is also making use of a set of optional parts here – the shoulders are different to allow her two bent arms to be used, which lets you pose Cirno in this confident looking pose. She’s never wrong you know!


A frog trapped in ice with hands to hold it!

    /:::::::: ( ○)三(○)\    “A… what…?”
     \:::::::::   |r┬-|   /
    ノ::::::::::::  `ー’´ \

It is a rather odd extra to have isn’t it! Being an ice fairy living by a lake…

One of Cirno’s hobbies is freezing and unfreezing frogs!

Unfortunately she fails once in awhile… leaving the poor little frog shattered into pieces with the ice… ^^;


An angry face and an ice sword!

Cirno can even do things like this with her control over ice!

The ice sword featured in the fighting game Touhou Hisoutensoku and is included with the Nendoroid as an optional extra. Obviously it also comes with a hand to wield the sword, as well as an expression more suited to combat!


A crying face for when she loses!

Aww… she looks so upset that she lost… but it’s so cute!

As you can see she is also the first Touhou Nendoroid that might get an aerial base and stand! This isn’t definite just yet, it might still change for the final release… I hope it will get through to the final release though!


Cirno finds a friend?

Do you think Snow Miku and Cirno would get along with each other?

The final optional part for Cirno is an extra set of legs – legs that are open much wider than the standard Nendoroid legs! This is another part that helps create a boastful pose for Cirno, seen that is definitely the most defining pose for her character!

You can actually make the legs appear more apart on any Nendoroid simply by twisting the leg joints so that the ‘line’ part of the join show, but…

       / \  / \  キリッ

    |      |r┬-|     |    ”That’s not good enough!!
     \     `ー’´   /      Cirno needs a more defining pose!”
     ノ            \

Take-chan was quite adamant that she got a separate set of legs, and so she did! You might also be able to use the legs on other characters from the Touhou Nendoroid series! (That might also change for the final product, however…)


The 9th Touhou Nendoroid:

Nendoroid Cirno!
