Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

We’ve finally moved into the time of year where things start to cool down and you start wanting to drink some nice warm drinks again…

… and on that note, let’s sit down for a cup of tea!

That’s right! Today I’ll be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Shinku: Rozen Maiden Set! ♥

From the anime series ‘Rozen Maiden’ comes a Nendoroid of the fifth Rozen Maiden, Shinku! She comes with three expressions including a cute doll face, a face with closed eyes and an upset glaring face. She also comes with her wind-up key and doll case creating a complete doll set for fans to enjoy!

Other optional parts include a teacup and saucer allowing you to pose her enjoying her beloved tea, and even some ‘Rosetail’ effects to display her in combat! Bring your very own Shinku home and enjoy her in whichever pose you think suits her best!

The seventh and third dolls have now shown up and I can’t wait to find out what will happen in the anime next!! I love the atmosphere of the series so much! (ΦωΦ)

Nendoroid Shinku matches up with that atmosphere beautifully, and she’s also super adorable!!

Isn’t she lovely! The proud fifth doll! Whilst she definitely is a Nendoroid, she also keeps a certain doll-like appearance to her which is great!

All the smallest details of her outfit have been faithfully shrunk down into Nendoroid size! Although I’m sure all those tiny black frills are going to cause quite a headache for the manufacturing team! (;´ω`)ノ

Plus her twirly twin-tails are perfect! ♥

The ribbon and rose in the center of her outfit and the twirls on the front of her hair are also all beautifully sculpted! ☆

I’m fairly certain all that twisty hair will also be quite difficult when manufacturing starts… but let’s check what an expert has to say on the matter! Today I’m joined by Kamatani from the manufacturing team!

My waifu Shinku’s twirly hair is an important part of her character, so I’ll ensure it comes out perfectly–(`・ω・´)!!”

It would seem I have nothing to worry about! ( 。´∀`。)

“Ho-How is the tea today, my lady?”

I had the strange urge to pose her in a saucer and it ended up looking rather cute! (*´Д`)ハァハァ (The large saucer isn’t included with the figure!)

Plus her ‘Rosetail’ attack effect parts are included allowing you to create combat scenes too!!

Something like this! ♪

But there are still many other lovely optional parts…!

The Rozen Maiden Doll Case! ♥

The case is very memorable even just from the opening theme! By the way… the head planner for this figure, who insisted that this part be included with Shinku no matter what is…

/    /    /       |    i,      丶     \

I’ve always adored Shinku’s ‘waking-up’ scene, so this had to be included to help create that pose! Can you imagine being Jun and opening up a case to find this beautiful doll inside? I think I’d scream in delight!

She also comes with her wind-up key!

Wind her up once you’ve taken her out of the doll case…

…and then make use of this adorable upset face to recreate the famous scene from the series!

I made sure to get some advice on which expressions to use from Kamatani, as I know he has to be the biggest Rozen Maiden fan in the offices! At one point there was also a smiling expression, shouting expression and an dumbstruck expression… but unfortunately they couldn’t all be kept for the final version… so we had to pick the best ones!

In the end, due to the fact that the doll case was included, we eventually settled on adding this expression to match up with the case and waking-up scene! Personally I’m super happy with how it came out! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

Now I get to be Shinku’s slave whenever I like! ^^

/Kahotan’s Inner Voice\
Rozen Maiden: Träumend was the series that introduced me to ALI PROJECT. I still remember that at that time I was always singing ‘Seishoujo Ryouiki’ at karaoke, setting my alarm to ‘Ashura-hime’ and listening to ‘Boukoku Kakusei Catharsis’ everyday on the way to school!
