Nendoroid Umaru

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’ve always wanted to try being someone’s elder brother, and I got that chance today while taking a look at this adorable Nendoroid…

Nendoroid Umaru!♡ 

From the upcoming anime series ‘Himouto! Umaru-chan’ comes a Nendoroid of Umaru, the character always lazing about at home! She comes a huge selection of expression parts including an energetic standard expression, an annoyingly confident expression, a smiling face, the excited expression when she eats something delicious as well as an expression crying like a spoilt child!

Optional parts include her beloved cola, a packet of potato chips and various other junk food parts to create a glorious Umaru banquet! Sitting parts as well as a gaming console are also included to bring out her personality even more! Give Umaru the lazy life she loves to live!

Umaru~n! ♡

The original complete manga that sold over a million copies is becoming an anime series in July!! This Nendoroid is of the main character Umaru-chan in her ‘Home-Umaru’ version! (●´ω`●)

Her characteristic hood and various little optional parts are all included to really bring out her personality as a Nendoroid! As you can see above she even comes with a bottle of cola and a packet of potato chips… but there is much more to come! ♪

“The Umaru banquet… has begun!”

 

This is how she looks from the back!

It’s so round and cute!!! (/ω\)

You wouldn’t even be able to tell this was a Nendoroid at first glance… but it certainly makes you want to pick her up and hug her!!

The back features one hole in order to attach the stand, but even without the stand the circular shape allows Umaru-chan to stand on her own!(σ・∀・)σ

By the way, you can find out more about the anime series through the official links below! φ(.. )

Anyway, returning to the Nendoroid! The Nendoroid comes with the very cute smiling expression you can see above which is her standard expression! But she also comes with four other alternate expressions for a total of five different expression parts to choose from!

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

 

– Standard Expression –

A cute, happy smile with rosy cheeks! ♥︎

She looks like she is really enjoying whatever she is doing… which in this case is of course playing games on her console! A portable game console is also included as an optional part for her to hold! So the optional parts so far are potato chips, cola and a game console!  But there is still much more to come…!!

As I’m sure you noticed, she also comes with lower body parts for sitting down with her knees up! This style of sitting just adds to her adorableness!

 

– Tantrum Expression –

“Nuh-uh! Nuh-uh!
Go buy it Onii-chan!!! Go buy it for me now!!”

This expression lets you pose Umaru chan being a little spoilt child! The quivering mouth to add even more to a normal crying expression is really cute!

I figured it would be more convincing if I made an animated version of the tantrum, so here we go!…

 “Please Please Please Please,
PLEASEEEE!!”

I always wanted a little sister like this!! 

As an only child I always wished I had someone like this that depended on me a little… I would happily go out shopping for her!!

Here you go Umaru-chan!! I bought you all sorts of goodies!!

/Mission Complete!\

Which brings us to the next expression!

– Confident Expression –

This one is also so, so cute! I wish I had more words to describe the cuteness!

She also comes with folded arm parts which just adds to the arrogant feeling behind the expression! Plus as you may have noticed in the previous gif animation… she also comes with even more junk food parts for the Umaru banquet!! 

You can pose these around her, or pose her holding them… become her big brother and give her all sorts of goodies!! If you give her some of your favorite foods you’re sure to get a very happy expression – something like this one!!

– Excited Expression –

“Delicioumaru!!”

Oooooooohhh!! (´□`。)

The problem is that once I see her enjoying them so much I won’t be able to stop giving her delicious goodies to see it more!! 

If the included optional parts are too small, you can always head out and get some real candy instead!! ♡

△ It’s quite big when compared to the Nendoroid-sized version!

Here you go Umaru-chan!

\Say “Ahhhh”♪/

This smile!! Priceless!!

The fifth and final expression is…

– Smiling Expression –

Those of you who have read the original manga will recognise this smile from a couple of rather memorable scenes…! ♡

Just looking at it makes me feel happy and relaxed as well!!

I can’t wait to be lazy at home with her, or even take her out for treats sometimes!! I will happily be her elder brother!!

You can also become her elder brother and enjoy all the expressions and optional parts to your heart’s desire! Recreate your favorite scenes from the series or even create your very own original scenes! ♪

Nendoroid Umaru!

She’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow! ★

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 Reimu Hakurei

★ Nendoroid Marisa Kirisame

☆ Nendoroid Sanae Kochiya

★ Nendoroid Sakuya Izayoi

☆ Nendoroid Remilia Scarlet

★ Nendoroid Flandre Scarlet

☆ Nendoroid Youmu Konpaku

★ 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 Patchouli Knowledge

She’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!

Plus once again orders from the GOODSMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a special B3 poster illustrated by ideolo! ★
