Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’ve always been more of a Rin’s hairstyle type with the two sides tied up – personally I prefer this look to the standard twintail look! So let’s get right into today’s review…

Nendoroid Rin Tohsaka!! ♪


From the popular PC game ‘Fate/stay night’ comes a Nendoroid of one of the main heroines and first class magus, Rin Tohsaka!

She comes with three expressions including a composed smiling expression, a combat expression and an embarrassed expression – she also comes with glasses to display her as the top student she is known to be. Both the Azoth Sword and Jeweled Sword of Zelretch are included together with effect parts to display her in combat, allowing you to recreate all sorts of scenes from the series!


Not only do we have a brand new Fate/stay Night anime coming this Autumn, we also have a Nendoroid of the lovely Rin coming our way! Some of you may already have the twin-tailed cheerleader version of Rin which was released as a part of the Cheerful Japan! project… but this is the very first standard version of Rin to be released as a Nendoroid.

Her impressive outfit has been shrunk down to Nendoroid size in great detail!

Her cute smiling expression is rather cute! (。・ω・)ノ゙

Her soft, flowing hair also looks great! The tied up parts of her hair are also fitted with Nendoroid joints for all sorts of poses! (`・ω・´)

Every little thing that made the crimson magus who she is has been compressed into cute Nendoroid form! (●´ω`●)

(・∀・) “But there’s more to Rin than just her cute side!”

Today we’re joined by Yassan from the planning team!

(・∀・) “You need to remember she is also known as the ‘Red Devil’… you can also of course pose that side of her!”

(・∀・) “A combat face is included together with bent legs and even special hand parts holding the magical gems she uses as weapons – combine them all together for an epic battle pose!”

Ooh! She even comes with effect parts!

You can experience the intense feeling of the battles even in Nendoroid size!

I can see this Nendo is going to be a ton of fun!! ヘ(゚∀゚*)ノ

(・∀・) “But that’s still not all! Rin has some other weapons she’s rather well known for!”

Oooh… is this what I think it is?

(・∀・) “Yep! She comes with the Azoth Sword… and also the Jeweled Sword Zelretch!”

The Jeweled Sword Zelretch is tiny, but you can still see the unique texture and appearance of it so nicely! Plus she comes with both left and right hands to hold the swords… giving you all the more options to pose her in! ♡

That also means you can pose her in a dual-wielding pose too! ♪

(・∀・) “Plus… Rin really is one of the most classic tsundere characters, so we wanted to bring out both her cute and serious sides in the figure!”

Yep! The gap between her cute and serious sides is what makes her so special!

(・∀・) “Which is exactly why we included an embarrassed expression!”

Ahh! She’s adorable!! ♡

(・∀・) “It really shows her character nicely! Definitely my personal favorite expression.”

The crossed arms also add to the tsundere look so nicely! I’m afraid I’m going to start hearing her voice in my head…

(・∀・) “There is still more… she also comes with this lovely item!”

Glasses!! (*´Д`)=з

(・∀・) “This actually wasn’t in out original plans… but when speaking with the publisher they specially requested them to be included. Personally I’m a huge fan of glasses girls myself, so there was no hesitation from my side!”

The publisher themselves wanted to make sure they could pose Glasses-Girl Rin! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

(・∀・) “The glasses are fully removable and can be attached to any expression, so you can use them wherever needed!”

*The detail put into the glasses is fantastic!*

*Rin telling everyone to be quiet already!*

Speaking of Fate/stay night, Nendoroid Gilgamesh was also in the works, right? Can we expect more from the series too?

*Nendoroid Gilgamesh on display at Anime Japan 2014*

(・∀・) “Gilgamesh will not be the last from the series… however we’re not quite ready to announce who’ll be next!”

Ooh! I’ll keep my eyes and ears open and let everyone know of any developments on the blog as soon as possible!!

For now you can look forward to enjoying all the charms of… ♥

She’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow, the 25th March!
