Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I was always rather interested in the tea ceremony club at school… but the main reason was that I wanted to much on the snacks that came along with the tea!

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

Nendoroid Yukari Akiyama! ♡


From the anime series ‘Girls und Panzer’ comes a Nendoroid of the Ankou Team’s loader wearing her panzer jacket, Yukari Akiyama!

She comes with both a confident expression for combat scenes as well as an embarrassed expression allowing for various situations from the series. She also comes with a tank turret, allowing you to pose her loading the tank shells!

Sorry for the wait everyone! Akiyama-dono is here!!

I’m sure many fans have been waiting for her to be announced ever since she debuted at WonFes! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

Hmm… what’s that huge thing beside her…?

I’m intrigued… but I’ll save it for later… let’s first take a look at Akiyama-dono herself! Her panzer jacket has been shrunk down to Nendoroid size, even keeping the Ankou team logo in full detail! (`・ω・´)

Her standard expression features a lovely smile, and she also comes with a confident expression to show off her prowess in battle!

The confident look definitely suits Akiyama-dono nicely! I’m glad there is the option to display this side of her! ♪

“Yahooo!!!!! This is the best!!”

The expression really brings out her character nicely! ☆

She also comes with this embarrassed smiling expression!

Oooh!! (*´▽`*)

A whole different kind of charm compared to the previous expressions! This one makes me feel all relaxed inside…

Anyway, let’s move onto taking a look at the huge thingy that was beside her at the start!

(・∀・) “My favorite part! A Nendoroid-sized tank turret!”

We’re joined by Otanaka-shi from the planning team!

(・∀・) “These parts allow you to pose her loading shells into the tank!”

Ooh! Even the inside has details sculpted on!! Σ(゚∀゚ノ)ノ

(・∀・) “It might be in chibi Nendoroid-size, but we tried to leave it with a heavy, mechanical feeling!”

She also comes with special hand parts to fully recreate the original scene!

(・∀・) “I really wanted to be able to display Akiyama-dono inside of the tank… that’s where she really shines in my eyes! I hope everyone will agree with me on that decision!”

Switch to this expression to show off her love for tanks! ♡

Now that I think about it, figma Saori Takebe was also announced just the other day! Is GSC also planning on continuing the Girls und Panzer lineup? ((o(´∀`)o))

(・∀・) “Hmmm… Nendoroid Saori Takebe is definitely on the list for fans to look forward to!”

(・∀・) “Additionally, I’m sure everyone remembers the Nendoroid Petites that were on display at WonFes… anything beyond that is still classified info!”

Oooh… what are you planning for us, Otanaka-shi?!

(・∀・) “… You’ll find out soon enough!”

A cute Nendoroid with a tank turret to boot! ♪

Nendoroid Yukari Akiyama!

She’ll be up for preorder from the 4th April!

(・∀・) “Yep! She’s still a little while away still… but there is one other thing I left out!”

Oh? Tell us, tell us!! (*´Д`)=з

(・∀・) “Alright…. those who order Nendoroid Yukari Akiyama from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP will be getting a little extra!”

Ah! I know this seat!

(・∀・) “That’s right – the tank commander’s chair!”

Ooh! Nishizumi-dono~ ヽ(o´∀`o)ノ

(・∀・) “Since Akiyama-dono can be displayed ‘inside’ the tank, we wanted to add the option for the previously released Miho as well!”

Ooh! There are lots of preorder bonuses from the GSC Online Shop at the moment… (゚A゚;)

(・∀・) “Plus one more thing… you may have guessed already, but Nendoroid Miho Nishizumi is also going to be rereleased!

What wonderful news!! ヽ(o・∀・o)ノ

(・∀・) “By the way, the commander’s chair included with Akiyama will also be included with orders of Miho Nishizumi from the GSC Online Shop!”

A chance for fans who missed out to get their hands on Miho! With an extra part to boot! ♫

They’ll both be announced on the GSC site next week!
