Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I once tried drinking hot sake in an open air bath… it didn’t take long for me to feel rather flushed. Just thinking about it makes me feel a little tipsy!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at two products which were announced today…

Bath Time Collection Ryujo
Bath Time Collection: Kitakami! ♡

Two new friends to join the Bathtime Collection series of bath toys!

The reason they look so shiny is because they are made with a different material to Nendoroids and most figures – they’re specially made to be strong against water and heat! ( -ノェ-)

Let’s start off with a closer look at Ryujo-chan!

Bath Time Collection: Ryujo!

From the popular ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes the third character to join the Bath Time Collection series of bath toys – Ryujo!

The design is based on an illustration of Ryujo by popular illustrator CHANxCO, and also features a wind-up motor which is designed to work both in water and on the ground! Enjoy the company of the cute Ryujo in the bath or anywhere else!

Ryujo is posed laid out on the deck of her ship with a very confident expression on her face! She’s so adorable! (●´ω`●)

Her characteristic visor is also of course included!

(・∀・) “A long awaited product release of Ryujo-chan!”

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

(・∀・) “Ryujo is actually my favorite Kanmusu, so I’m super happy to see her!”

She also looks cute from the back! ♡
CHANxCO’s lovely illustration has been so faithfully transformed! (*゚ー゚*)

(・∀・) “This time around we’ve also increased their ability to withstand hotter baths! Take a look at the bottom of the product description!”

Ah! It’s changed to 45°C! <●><●>

(・∀・) “The Kanmusu have had their equipment upgraded!!”

Next up we have Kitakami-sama!!

Bath Time Collection: Kitakami!

From the popular ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes the forth character to join the Bath Time Collection series of bath toys – the light cruiser Kitakami!

The design is based on an illustration of Kitakami by popular illustrator CHANxCO, and features a wind-up propeller unit allowing her to speed along the water!

She is placed in such a lazy, carefree looking pose!! It’s perfect! ♡

Kitakami herself looks great, but so does the equipment on her back and the torpedoes she is lying on! (。・ω・)ノ゙

(・∀・) “By the way, the motor parts of both the characters can be removed!”

If you just want to put them on display and not use them as bath toys, then this should make that easier! (*´Д`)

H-Hold on a second… these attachments! I wonder….

Ooh!! You can swap the two types of motors around!! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

I wonder if this was by design… or if they just happened to work out like that…?

(・∀・) “Haha… this was completely by design!”

Darn… I was about to claim I was the first person to figure it out… ( °д°)

(・∀・) “The units can also be swapped out with the previously announced, Bath Time Collection: Akagi!!”

Ooh… so you were even thinking about cross-compatibility with the previous release! If you grab more than one be sure to try switching the parts around – it might be fun to see the different Kanmusu moving about in different ways!

Anyway… it’s hard to do a review of bath toys without water… so here’s a quick video review too!!

Well… what did you think?

Ryujo-san moves forward so adorably!
Kitakami wavers to the side a bit… suits the carefree look! Oo。。( ̄¬ ̄*)

Fun to display and fun to play with!!

Bath Time Collection: Ryujo! &

That reminds me… yesterday was the KanColle 1 Year Service Anniversary! We’ll be bringing all the admirals out there many more products, so look forward to them! To celebrate the anniversary, I thought I’d go through all the KanColle items that are currently up for order! (`・ω・´)
