Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

I have never been able to get along very well with animals. I do think I could get along with a canine ALL-MATE! In fact I’d love to get along with one!

With that said, today I’ll be taking a look at…

Ren: Rhyme mode Ver.!

“Stop overthinking it. You’ll short your brain out.”

From the PC game ‘DRAMAtical Murder’ comes a 1/7th scale figure of the main character’s partner, Ren! He has been sculpted in his human mode from the virtual game in the series ‘Rhyme’.

The cape that brings out the atmosphere of the Rhyme world has been carefully sculpted, but can also be removed for an alternate display showing off his shapely body for fans to enjoy. Grab the calm and collected Ren and display him by your side forever more!

Hyahoooooooo!!!! (*´Д`)

The dependable Ren sitting looking as charming as ever!

His lovely large cape flowing around his human form! The sculptor of the figure is none other than Nanako-san, the same sculptor behind the previously released Aoba figure! ♡

As I’m sure you can tell simply by laying eyes on him for a second, the amount of love that has gone into the sculpt-work is simply amazing!

Even the base is amazing with a giant beast-like hand, floating crystals and fluttering cape!

Everything surrounding Ren is beautifully made!

Plus just look at his amazing expression!

Depending on how you look at it, it can give off all sorts of different emotions… it’s mysterious, pondering… and perhaps even a little bit lonely!

You could just stare into his eyes forever… at least I know I could!!

This product is a part of the WONDERFUL HOBBY SELECTION! Let me give a quick explanation once again for those who aren’t sure what that is! (`・ω・´)ゞ

The WONDERFUL HOBBY SELECTION is a brand new series of products brought to you by Good Smile Company, focusing mainly on figures. These products will be absolute top-of-the-line products – with meticulous sculptwork, high quality artistic work and top-notch quality to live up to the needs of collector’s looking for the best of the best to add to their collection.

This is the third figure in the series, following on from Yatamo: Heavy Armament Ver. and The Colossal Titan TAKAYUKI TAKEYA Ver.!

But anyway, let’s get back onto today’s review!

This is how he compares in size with a Nendoroid! 

Based on this, he is around 1/3rd the height of a Nendoroid!

The figure is 1/7th scale, making it fairly large! (*´Д`)=з

Taking a look from above gives this view…

You can really tell just how volume the cape gives the figure!

You can also see the detail in design of the cape, as well as the collar around his neck! ♪

If you take a look from the bottom…

You get a little peek at his arm and flank!

(´-`).。oO(Being teased like this is so effective…!)


You don’t have to remain being teased, as I’m sure you all know that Ren’s cape can be completely removed, showing off much more of his body for fans to enjoy! (・∀・)

Oooooooooooohhhhhhh!! (/ω\)

W-What do I do?! I’m too embarrassed to continue!

Those arms! Those abs! Everything else!

The bumps of his collarbone and ribcage are also beautiful!

Each and every contour of his body is a treat!

I just want to run my fingers along his skin!! The tattoos on his back are also faithfully kept in place! The pointy hair sculpting is also something we only ever see much of on male figures… it looks awesome! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

The area around his neck is also very appealing! Removing the cape doesn’t only give you a goof look at Ren though, the giant hand is also much more visible… and looks really impressive!

Enjoy Ren’s charms to the fullest! ♥︎

Ren: “Together Forever” Ver.

“I want… to touch Aoba more…”

From the PC game ‘DRAMAtical Murder’ comes a 1/7th scale figure of the main character’s partner, Ren! He has been sculpted in human mode with his cape removed and a gentle smile on his face.All of the tattoos on his back have also been faithfully included, allowing fans to enjoy him from any angle they please!

The included base is made in the image of a sandy beach, ideal for the Ren route in the game. Be sure to add Ren to your collection and keep him by your side… together, forever.

Such a gentle smile!

Unlike the Rhyme mode Ver. this one does not have a cape, but the sculpting is just as wonderful as far as the body goes! The base is also a completely different, sandy beach base! 

The same beautiful tattoos, muscles and overall sexy body are all still there to enjoy to the fullest!

As the base isn’t quite as large, you actually get a better view of the area around his hips! ☆

Let’s take a closer look at that base! <○><○>

The base has sand and some gentle waves! It looks so beautiful!! 

The way the water is sparking gives it such a clear appearance, it makes me wish I was by the ocean paddling in some waves! It also reminds me on the Ren route in the game so very clearly… (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

A beautiful smile and a sexy body to keep by your side forever!
