Nendoroid Petite: Touken Ranbu -ONLINE- 1st Squad

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Thanks to everyone who just watched the live broadcast! I hope you enjoyed it!! Now I’m going to be taking a closer look at each of the sword boys in ORANGE ROUGE’s latest product…

Nendoroid Petite:
Touken Ranbu -ONLINE- 1st Squad!

From the popular browser game ‘Touken Ranbu -ONLINE- comes a set of six cute and small articulated Nendoroid Petite figures! The set features the five starter swords Kashu Kiyomitsu, Kasen Kanesada, Yamanbagiri Kunihiro, Hachisuka Kotetsu, Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki as well as Yamatonokami Yasusada!Each of the characters keeps their unique personality and style, even when shrunk down into a size even smaller than normal Nendoroids! Recreate your squad in adorable size!!

Apologies for the long wait since WonFes! (´□`。) 

The Touken characters have been shrunk down to an even smaller size than standard Nendoroids to the approx. 65mm high Nendoroid Petite series! This first set contains six different characters including Kashu Kiyomitsu, Kasen Kanesada, Yamanbagiri Kunihiro, Hachisuka Kotetsu, Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki and Yamatonokami Yasusada

Even though they are so very small, I’m sure you can see that the attention to detail on areas such as the intricate outfits, accessories and the lovely flow of each character’s hair is absolutely fantastic!! ♡

They look just as good from the back as well! (σ・∀・)σ

The different outfits and hairstyles of each character have all been captured so effectively even from the back which isn’t even visible in the original illustrations!! Each and every detail has also been polished to perfection to ensure a set of figures that fans will be proud to add to their collections! ★

Let’s take a closer look at them one-by-one!

– Kashu Kiyomitsu –

Give him all the love he desires!!

Even his diamond earrings have been kept in detail on the Nendoroid Petite! Also note the adorable little mole by his mouth!! (/ω\)

– Kasen Kanesada –

His elegance has been preserved in Nendoroid Petite size!! 

Note the way his outfit flows around him, gently fluttering about!! The amount of different colors used is also incredible for a Nendoroid Petite – even the back of his cape features a different color! ☆

– Yamanbagiri Kunihiro – 

The hood over his head and the torn look at the bottom is lovely! ♪

He looks ready for a fight! The area on the right hidden beneath the cape is also faithfully sculpted and painted! Be sure to take a closer look once he joins your collection!!

– Hachisuka Kotetsu –

His golden armor and accessories around his hips faithfully preserve his graceful and noble appearance! (/ω\)

The shiny gold appearance will be kept even for the final product! Worry not!

– Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki –

An expression that captures his frank and straightforward personality!

The spiky hairstyle and the unique look of his outfit from the top to the bottom have all been faithfully sculpted! You can even see the gun he keeps at his hips as an alternate weapon! The manly outfit looks so amazing!!

– Yamatonokami Yasusada –

This gentle smile makes it so hard to picture him saying his combat lines!!

The armor around his torso has shiny paintwork to differentiate it from the rest of his outfit! Lovely! ♡

Each of them is overflowing with amazing detail!!

Remember that each of these figures stands just 65mm in height!  (。・ω・)ノ゙

– Compared with an iPhone 6 –


△ The iPhone 6 is around double the height of them!

– Compared to a Nendoroid –

△ Displayed with my Nendoroid Kashu with painted nails!
△ Nendoroids are about 100mm tall, making quite a big size difference!

Nendoroid Petites really are pretty much the ideal size to sit in the palm of your hand like so! ♪

△ The final products will have a standard Nendoroid Petite base and stand! ♪

Anyway, as mentioned on the live broadcast these figures are a little different to standard Nendoroid Petite sales, so take note!

Nendoroid Shokudaikiri Mitsutada

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Thanks to everyone who tuned into the live broadcast earlier! Without further ado, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Shokudaikiri Mitsutada

From the popular browser game ‘Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the sword always trying to show off his real potential, Shokudaikiri Mitsutada! He comes with three expressions including his standard rebellious expression, a serious combat expression as well as a troubled expression to show him worrying about not being as quite as cool as he wants to be.His sword can be displayed both sheathed and drawn, and he can easily take a variety of action poses to show off his abilities! Be sure to add Shokudaikiri Mitsutada to your collection!

He definitely looks cool to me!!

ORANGE ROUGE’s latest release is the fifth Nendoroid from Touken Ranbu, the rather fashionable sword wielded by none other than Date Masamune – Shokudaikiri Mitsutada!★

You can find out more about GSC and Max Factory’s new ORANGE ROUGE brand over at the official site: http://orangerouge.com/en/

His awesome suit-like outfit with black gloves and an eye patch have all been shrunk down into Nendoroid size! He looks amazing!!

Even though his outfit contains a lot of black, the paintwork clearly separates different textures and shades for lovely detail!  (`・ω・´)ゞ

The colors of the outfit definitely have a rather dark appearance to them, quite in contrast with the last Touken Ranbu Nendoroid, Tsurumaru! Also note the details on all the accessories of the outfit! The intricate ties, golden buttons and armoured areas… there is so much to see!

As you can see in the above photo, you can also pose him with his sword drawn! He looks ready for combat now! I think one of my best things about Shokudaikiri is his gentle-mannered persona which really comes thorough in his expression here!

As with the previous Touken Nendoroids, Shokudaikiri will also comes with a round base featuring his sword emblem! ♪

△ His emblem is really cool!!

Anyway! Now that we’ve seen his gentle expression…

We need to also see what he looks like in combat!

Those sharp eyes have already seen through his enemy’s next move…!

The expression really captures his fighting spirit with those eyes and his clenched teeth!

A very different feeling to the gentle look from the first expression! ♫

Anyway, let’s move onto his third expression…

A troubled expression!

Ooooooooooh!! (´□`。)

Suddenly he doesn’t look so ready for combat any more! This one is a much more everyday kind of expression! ★

Plus the way he’s scratching his cheek makes him look even more troubled… 

This expression was created based on Shokudaikiri’s line from the game, “Hmm, I guess that was pretty lame…”! It’s one of those expressions that can be used in so many different ways!

Be sure to add him to add the cool sword to your Nendoroid collection!

Nendoroid Shokudaikiri Mitsutada

He’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow! ♫

Be sure to check the Good Smile Company site for more details tomorrow! (=゚ω゚)ノ

Orders from the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a bonus – a Nendoroid Plus Rubber Strap: Shokudaikiri Mitsutada “I Guess That’s Pretty Lame’ Ver.

△ He’s so cute and cool at the same time! ♡

Plus as with the previous releases a special Nendoroid pouch based on his design and colors will also be available separately! ヽ(o´∀`o)ノ

Also remember that as of yesterday Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika has shipped out to fans! Yours should be arriving soon!! (*´∀`*)

I’m sure there are many people who purchased Mikazuki as their first ever Nendoroid! Be sure to take him out the box and play with him a bit!! ☆

But a quick notice!!

When posing him holding the sword in his hand you need to slip the hand through the grip, but when doing so I recommend holding onto the thicker handle part of the sword to prevent the sword from bending or snapping!

If you’re having trouble connecting parts together, try warming them up with something like a hair dryer and they’ll slip into place easier!! More Details

 

If you have any other problems feel free to contact the Good Smile Company Support Team!! GOOD SMILE COMPANY CUSTOMER SUPPORT

Plus in commemoration of the first Touken Ranbu Nendoroid, you’ll also find a special Vanguard card of Mikazuki Munechika is included!! ~(๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

△ You’ll find it inside a clear packet with the handling instructions.

There are more ORANGE ROUGE Nendoroids from Touken Ranbu coming up too! Here are the ones that have been announced so far! ヽ(・∀・)ノ

Nendoroid Kashuu Kiyomitsu

Today’s main feature…!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

We’re already in the last week of April!! There is no way to escape the coming of May!! Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a closer look at the figure we took a special look at on last week’s live broadcast…

Nendoroid Kashuu Kiyomitsu!

From the popular PC browser game ‘Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the sword that is difficult to handle but stands above the rest, Kashuu Kiyomitsu! He comes with three expressions including his charming standard face, a fearless combat expression as well as a yawning expression based on his lines from the game.

His sword is included and can be displayed both sheathed and drawn, and he also comes with the item that remedies fatigue in the game, an ‘Enchanted Dango’. Be sure to add him to your collection!

Oooooohhhhh!!! (●´ω`●)

The sword used by Okita Souji in the Shinsengumi and  one of the five characters that can be selected as your first character in the tutorial for Touken Ranbu – Kashuu Kiyomitsu is now joining the Nendoroids! ♡

The red and black contrast of his outfit, the ever so slight smile and mole on his cheek… and those refreshing eyes!

 

How can you not love him?!

You can look at him from any angle and he will always score top points! ♡

This is how he looks from the back! ♪

The fluttering of his jacket is perfect…!

The reverse side of him never appears in the game, but we worked with the publisher to get exactly how he should look from the back! If you look closely you’ll even notice his shoes have little Nendoroid-sized heels! っ(。・ω・)ノ゙

The hemming of his jacket as well as his earrings make use of a lovely golden paint, and the emblems on the collar have been faithfully added onto the Nendoroid design! If you look close you’ll also notice the crimson inner lining of the jacket as well! (`・ω・´)ゞ

His mouth is so very unique too! It’s so cute!

Let’s take a closer look at what expressions are included with Kashuu! ♫

First up is his confident smiling ‘standard expression’!ヽ(o´∀`o)ノ

The way his mouth looks as well as the mole make for such an original Nendoroid expression! His hair also features a slight gradient to give it a more flowing, smooth appearance! ♡

As you may have noticed, he actually comes with two different ponytail parts – one to rest over his shoulder in front of him, and another that is blowing about in the wind behind him! They also have Nendoroid joints at the attachment point allowing you to create different nuances with the hair! (σ・∀・)σ

One other thing I’d like to point out, is that the eyes have highlights in them. The original illustration actually never had highlights, but in order to keep the ‘cute’ side of the Nendoroid design, we decided to work with the publisher and have them added in for the Nendoroid version! φ(.. )

Anyway, next up we have…

 

A combat expression that captures Kashuu’s calm and collected demeanour!

But more importantly… he looks so epic holding his sword like this!!

He comes with bent leg parts for both legs, which make him look like he is putting lots of energy behind his thrust! 

However! Now take another look at his eyes…!

The highlight has been removed!! (/ω\)

As I mentioned, we added in the highlight to bring out the cuter side of the Nendoroid design… but when it comes to combat expressions the cuteness factor could be removed a little, so we kept this expression faithful to the original, no highlight design!

By the way, just like Mikazuki, he comes with his sword in both its sheathed and unsheathed forms, allowing for various different options! You can even pose him as if he has just pulled the sword from its scabbard!

Simply pick the pose that you think suits him best! ♪

Another thing to note is the detailed sculpting on the guard of his sword!

It’s so tiny, yet you can tell a lot of intricate work went into it! (; ・`д・´)

The Nendoroid as a whole is without a doubt a treat for the eyes, but looking at smaller details like this is what really makes them so very special!

However… if we look at Nendoroid Kashuu’s fingernail color…

In the game, Kashuu Kiyomitsu’s fingernails are actually a crimson color, however due to issues this would cause in manufacturing, we’ve unfortunately had to omit this from the Nendoroid…

I’m sure that many player’s of the game might be a little disappointed with this decision, but remember that Nendoroids are 10cm high figures. The hand parts are hardly a centimetre in length… to mass produce a product with each of the fingernails individually neatly painted would be incredibly difficult…!

However! Worry not!

For those who wish to have their Nendoroid Kashuu Kiyomitsu with crimson finger nails, I will be writing a nail painting how-to blog after Nendoroid Kashuu has been released! It will cover the best and easiest ways to color his nails – in such a way that even someone as clumsy as myself can do it!

Anyway, let’s move onto his optional parts!

Kashuu comes with ‘Enchanted Dango’! ♡ 

This is an item in the game that recovers characters from being fatigued!

You can also grab your own dango and pretend you’re eating together with him!! 

Just like the ‘uchiko’ that was included with Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika, the optional parts help bring out the atmosphere of the game!

Finally, let’s move into the final expression… 

 “*yawn* so sleepy…”

 

Hyahoooooooo!!! (*´Д`)

He also comes with a sleepy looking yawning expression!! The gap between the combat expression above and this expression is rather vast!

△ I love the arrogant attitude that comes from his expressions!

Along with the optional parts he also comes with bent arms, bent legs and alternate hand parts for all sorts of different poses and options! ♥︎

Be sure to add him to your collection!

Nendoroid Kashuu Kiyomitsu!

He’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow! ♪

Check the Good Smile Company Official Site for more details!

Plus, preorders from the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a Nendoroid Plus Rubber Strap: Kashuu Kiyomitsu Sleepy Ver. as a bonus! ♪

Fans of Touken Ranbu have various other figures to look forward to as well!
Such as Nendoroid Kogitsunemaru!

and Max Factory’s Kogitsunemaru!

Here is a tweet from the sculptor (@konanako_nagi) of the figure, saying that it has passed the checks from the publisher!!

I look forward to seeing it painted!! ♪
