Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I’m counting the sleeps until Summer Break! It’s only next month, but I’m already looking forward to festivals and shaved ice!

Today I’m going to be taking a look at some figures that suit the Summer! ♡

Nendoroid Petite: KanColle!

From ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a set of cute little KanMusu, here to join the popular articulated ‘Nendoroid Petite’ series of trading figures! The six characters that were selected the most popular in Comptiq’s popularity polls are all in the set – Kongo, Haruna, Kaga, Kitakami, Zuikaku and Shokaku are all ready to set sail! Display your favorite characters in all sorts of places! ♪


The six characters voted most popular by admirals in Comptiq have been shrunk down to adorable Nendoroid Petite size! They’re so cute and tiny, and yet all the detail of their ship parts has been faithfully preserved!! ♥

Let me take a closer look at them one-by-one! (`・ω・´)

– Kongo –

“I am the English-born returnee, Kongo! Nice to meet you!”

Kongo of course already has a full-sized Nendoroid, but now fans can enjoy her in an even smaller size! Even so, the details on her outfit are spectacular!

“It’s our turn! Follow me! Everyone, keep up!”

Even each of the turrets on her back has been sculpted separately, and her rather unique hair style is incredibly intricate! (`・ω・´)

To give you a little better idea for size, here she is displayed with Nendoroid Petite Mikudayo!!

Although the height remains the same as any other Nendoroid Petite, the huge ship parts give her a bit more overall volume! (; ・`ω・´)

Although I think Mikudayo is still winning in terms of presence…

– Haruna –

“If you’re happy with me, I’ll be glad to rejoin you any time!”

The third of the four Kongo-class battleships: Haruna! (*´▽`*)

She has a similar pose to Medicchu Haruna, but definitely has a notably different chibi style! ♪

“I refuse to let you do as you please!”

I’ve always loved Haruna’s stern battle quotes! (●´∀`●)

Once again, the details on the ship parts is fantastic, but Haruna also boasts incredibly dynamic hair flowing behind her as well as an adorable miko priestess outfit!

– Kitakami –

“I am… a brand new Kitakami. A more mature version – fully loaded with oxygen torpedoes.”

(・∀・) “We decided to go with the Kitakami Kai Ni Torpedo Cruiser, as I’m sure it is the most used among admirals!”

We’re joined by the product’s planner, Kyojin!

(・∀・) “We did include extra parts to half create the Kai Ni version of Kitakami on the Nendoroid version, but the Nendoroid Petite has outfit and all in the heavier version! I love this version of her!”

The short-sleeved sailor outfit does suit her very nicely! (´□`。)

“This is nice… I’m quivering with excitement! Thank you!”

Take note of her ship parts and the back of her uniform too! If you’re more of a fan of the long sleeved light cruiser version of Kitakami, then be sure to check out the full-size Nendoroid Kitakami as well! Currently up for preorder!

– Kaga –

“I’m aircraft carrier Kaga. You’re my Admiral? I have fairly high expectations of you.”

Kaga-san looks ready for action! Even in Petite form she keeps her confident air! ♡ This pose came from Kazama Kondou! (Comptiq 2013/10)

“Don’t group me with those 5th Division kids…”

Her ship deck is tiny and still has little details all over it! (゚A゚;)
I get the feeling that separating all these colors for manufacturing is going to be quite the challenge!

(・∀・) “The last two are the sisters of the 5th Carrier Division!”

– Zuikaku –

“I am Zuikaku, the younger of the Shokaku-class aircraft carriers. They call me the ‘lucky aircraft carrier’, but that’s not true. I just give it my all no matter what! As long as I have planes, I’ll never lose!”

The cute, tsundere aircraft carrier, Zuikaku-chan! ♡

This pose comes from Raguho-san! (Famitsu.com)

(・∀・) “Zuikaku seems more like a true archer than any of the other aircraft carriers! Her pose and outfit tell it all!

“Shokaku, what are yo- Ah! It’s you Admiral! W-What do you think you’re doing?! Do you want me to bomb you?!”

(・∀・) “Her ship deck, back parts and even the equipment on her feet are detailed down to the finest detail possible!”

– Shokaku –

“I am Shokaku, the first of the Shokaku-type carriers. I will strive together with Zuikaku to live up to the names of the first and second divisions.”

Shokaku is normally so gentle looking, but the Nendoroid is ready for combat! She is a very reliable older sister to Zuikaku! ♪ This pose is by Matsuryu! (Comptiq 2013/10)

(・∀・) “Shokaku is a gentle beauty at heart, but Matsuryu’s epic posing was just perfect to fit in with the set so we decided to make use of it! I know admirals out there will be proud to display this confident Shokaku too!

“Zuikaku, don’t bother the admiral too much, okay?”

Even her plane-shaped arrowheads are included, and the long silver hair looks magnificent!! (*´Д`)=з

(・∀・) “They look great alone, but the two sisters definitely look best together!

Without a doubt! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

The Nendoroid Petites are trading figures, which means they are blind box – you won’t know who is inside until you have opened the box! You’ll just need to hope that you get both the sisters without too much effort!

(・∀・) “By the way, The Nendoroid Petite KanColle is also sold as a box of six… and buying a box of six will give you a little bonus too!”

*A box does not necessarily contain all six varieties!

Oh? What’s this? ( ゚д゚)

(・∀・) “It’s a special background sheet to display them on!”

Ah-hah! Something like… this? ♪

*Background has been reinforced for photos.

(・∀・) “This background sheet will be included in each box of six figures!”

The girls are all standing out in the open ocean with the blue sky over head!! It really brings out the KanColle atmosphere! (*´▽`*)

(・∀・) “Keep it in mind when deciding to grab a box of six or not!”

Cute little versions of the KanColle girls and all their ship equipment!

Nendoroid Petite: KanColle!

They will be up for preorder from around the 15th July!! (`・ω・´)ノ

(・∀・) “Plus… there are also preorder bonuses!”


(・∀・) “Firstly, all orders from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a booklet edited by Comptiq! Additionally, orders from Karuzawa Online will include a Naval Battle shitajiki!”

W-What?! (゚A゚;)

(・∀・) “Please check the respective sites for more details at a later stage!”

Well there you have it! Not only can you get the cute Nendoroid Petites, but a whole bunch of little extras too! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
