Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Other than the pretty decorations you saw me playing around with yesterday, I’ve never been much of a Christmas person. Once the decorating is over I’m happy to wait until Christmas Mode passes over… and the New Year arrives!

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

Nendoroid Akagi!

From ‘Kantai Collection ~KanColle~’ comes a Nendoroid of the aircraft carrier, Akagi! The ship deck board, radar and mast she carries with her are all included to display by her side.

But that’s not all – three smaller aircraft are included to display around her to represent her as an aircraft carrier, and special effect parts to display her soaring over water are also included to recreate her evasion animation! All these parts together allow Akagi to be displayed as the military flagship she is!

However she also comes with a huge bowl of rice, a table set and a bucket filled with bauxite to display the more comical side of her as well – just pick the Akagi you prefer!

S-she’s adorable!!

I know many of you have been waiting for her ever since Shimakaze was announced, apologies for the long wait! The second to join the KanColle Nendoroid series is none other than the aircraft carrier, Akagi!♡

Her kyuudou uniform-like outfit has been faithfully transformed into Nendoroid size – even the ‘A’ on her skirt panel is included! The bow and arrow is also included and she can even be posed pulling the string, ready to fire! ♪

Posing the included aeroplanes around her really brings out the KanColle universe! ♡

(・∀・) “The details on the smaller items like the ship deck, radar and mast arrow are definitely something to notice!”

\ Today we’re joined by Kyojin from the planning team! /

I wouldn’t call them smaller items! They are definitely important parts to Akagi’s character design! ε=(。・д・。)

(・∀・) “That’s exactly it! These parts are central to her character, so we made sure to get them right! Even though it was quite a nightmare to transform them into chibi size… “

It’s not always easy to keep the character nicely in tact when designing the Nendoroid!

(・∀・) “There are many more items included that bring out Akagi’s character though! For example…!

Is this…?! (゚∀゚)!

(・∀・) “Yep! A bucket of bauxite!”

All the admirals out there are sure to enjoy recreating their favorite scenes with the ‘Queen of Bauxite’… (o・ω・o)♥

(・∀・) “But there is still much more to come! Fans will know that Akagi loves to eat., and she particularly loves to eat rice… so…!”

* Also note the ship deck part can be removed!

(・∀・) “A little table with a cushion to sit on, a bowl of rice with some seconds on the side and even chopsticks are all included!

Oooh!! (*´▽`*) She really is quite the glutton with this set!

She even has a grain of rice stuck on her cheek as she noms down the rice! She looks so happy…!! So happy that I feel all happy inside myself just by looking at her!! ♡

She also comes with three small aeroplanes to display flying around her! ♡

(・∀・) “From the left we have the Aichi D3A, the Mitsubishi A6M Zero and the Nakajima B5N!”

They’re so small but you can still make out the differences between the types!

The tiny planes are made using 3D data! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

(・∀・) “She also comes with some cool effect parts to pose her gliding over the…


W-What’s the matter?! ((((;゚Д゚))))

(;・∀・) “The A6M Zero is the wrong color…!!”

EEEeeeeee (゚Д゚) eeeeeEEEhh?!

(;・∀・) “The aeroplane in the middle there… it’s well known to be grey with just a hint of green…! I’m gonna go get Doc (someone from the production team) to fix it up quick!”


… (ノ ゚д゚)ノ

And thus my chat with Kyojin came to an end! ^^;

The final product will have the colors corrected, so don’t worry! Also, just like Shimakaze she will come with a special box sleeve when ordered from the GSC Online Shop… as well as maybe some other extras too! Be sure to check the GSC Product page for more details!

From powerful aircraft carrier to hungry rice-lover!

Nendoroid Akagi!

She’ll be up for preorder from the 17th December!


Finally a quick notice: Nendoroid Akagi and figma Shimakaze are currently on display at the GSC x Tetsujin Cafe! ♪

They’re on display in the display case near the register, so you’re welcome to just take a look even if you’re not eating at the cafe! (`・ω・´)

Both of them will be on display until the 15th December, so don’t miss out on your chance! Also note that the KanColle cafe is only running until the end of this week…

However, an encore of the cafe has already been announced! It’s currently planned for February/March 2014! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

Further details aren’t available just yet, but keep your eyes on the Official Website for more details: http://www.gstjcafe.jp/!
