\ No…! I’m hit…! /

/ But it’s not enough to take me down yet! \

Hello Admirals, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at:

Nendoroid I-401! ♪

From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the Toku Class Submarine I-401! Ready for departure!

Optional parts include Aichi M6A Seiran attack planes as well as her torpedoes to display battle scenes! The hangar tubes at her sides can be opened and closed, and a half-damage body is also included! Some splashing water effect parts are also included to display her jumping around in the water – as she really enjoys a quick splash in the bath!

Ooooooooh!!! (´∀`)

Delicious tanned skin and a school swimsuit!

With a no-sleeve sailor outfit over the top too!

The energetic submarine, Shioi-chan! ♥︎

Following on from Nendoroid Akagi, Kaga, Kitakami and Ooi comes the 5th Nendoroid based on illustrations by Shibafu! (。・ω・)ノ゙

Just like all the previous Nendoroids, the illustration looks wonderful in chibi Nendoroid size! Just look how cute she is!

Let’s take a look from the back! ♪

The submarine parts carried on her shoulder have also been carefully sculpted!

The lovely orange collar of her sailor outfit too! (*´Д`)=з

Optional parts include Aichi M6A Seiran attack planes!

They even of course include the floats needed for submarine-borne aircraft! Not to mention that you can even pose them preparing for launch on the hangar tubes, like on the right side of Shioi-chan here! (σ・∀・)σ

The hatch to the hangar tube can also be opened and closed!

You can really see the attention to detail on the design! ☆

She comes with both the lovely smiling expression above, as well as a chibi expression perfect for firing off her torpedoes a little carelessly! ε=(。・д・。)

The innocent smile on her face is so cute!! ♥︎

Even though she has a more mature look to her when compared to the other submarines, it doesn’t mean that her personality can’t still be a little playful!

The included firing parts for her torpedoes are included for some action scenes!

Taking a closer look at her sailor outfit, you’ll realize it’s actually tied together at the sides… showing off a little bit more of her swimsuit!

Also take a close look at the string holding her submarine parts!

(・∀・) “Yep! The string is actually made from leather!”

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

(・∀・) “By using a soft material, you really have complete control as to how high you want to pose it!”

It’ll definitely will come in handy with poses! ♪

(・∀・) “Shioi has very unique parts among the submarines, so I was really looking forward to making her into a Nendoroid! There are a lot of fun ways to enjoy her!”

By the way, does she come with any other effect parts? The KanMusu Nendoroids normally come with so many effects!

(・∀・) “Shioi also comes with these effect parts!”

\ Time to go take a quick splash in the bath! /

S-So cute! ♥︎♡

(・∀・) “Special parts included to match her famous lines!”

Quite a different kind of effect parts compared to others!

I can see it being useful for poses with various other characters too! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)

(・∀・) “There is also something that stands out quite a lot with her legs!”

Her legs?!

The joint and leg colors are… different?!

(・∀・) “Yep! It shows just how tanned she is!”

This is the love of a true Admiral…! (´□`。)

(・∀・) “The tanned body is also nicely visible on the half-damage body!”

Oooh! I almost forgot about the half-damage body! Let’s take a look!

Ooooooohhhh!! ヽ(*´∀`*)ノ.+゚

I started the blog off with a similar shot, but the combination of that sideways glare and the school swimsuit gets me every time! You can also see her name ‘I-401’ written on the swimsuit name tag!

The way the shoulder strap is flopped over also looks delicious!

(・∀・) “Take a look from the back too!”

(・∀・) “This side of Shioi was never visible in the illustration making it our original interpretation… but take a look at the skin visible through the bigger hole!

… it’s not tanned! (((゜д゜;)))

(・∀・) “We were told by Shibafu that Shioi’s upper body is fully tanned, but the lower parts are still pale! We made sure to keep that true with the Nendoroid!”

Excellent work, Admiral Kyojin!!

As you can see, you can also completely remove her submarine parts, but that does mean there is a hole in her back for the Nendoroid stand! (`・ω・´)ゞ

(・∀・)” There are still many more KanMusu in the works! Perhaps a scale figure of the 2nd of the Yamato-class battleships too?”

Lots of little details and fun parts! The cute submarine…

Nendoroid I-401!!

She’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow!

As with all the previous KanColle Nendoroids, orders from the Good Smile Online Shop will include a special box sleeve and Nendoroid stand, so be sure to keep that in mind when you are ordering! Shioi-chan’s stand is slightly larger than most Nendoroid stands (Around 8x8cm)!

The sleeve design will be revealed on her product page shortly, so check back in a few days! φ(.. )


Another item that Admirals shouldn’t miss out on are the…

Nendoroid Plus: KanColle Straps – 4th Fleet (Vol.4)

The fourth fleet is ready for deployment!

From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a fourth set of cute rubber straps for admirals to collect! The 4th fleet includes another six characters: Zuikaku, Shokaku, Kumano, Suzuya, Верный (Vernui) and Re-Class.

The straps even include the adorable Re-chan! ♥︎

These are available at the GSC Online shop until the 29th October at 21:00JST!
Don’t miss out!(。・ω・)ノ゙
