Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I believe very strongly in the Japanese saying ‘dumplings over flowers’ – that it is better to have something practical like food rather than something pretty like flowers.
However Spring is finally here, which means we will soon get to enjoy both – eat delicious things like sakura-mochi while also getting to see beautiful sakura blossoms!
Anyway, as I’m sure everyone knows by now, yesterday was the long-awaited announcement of Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika
You can find my review article about him over here:
⇒ Nendoroid Mikazuki Munechika
Together with the Nendoroid, we also had some Touken Ranbu goods from Hobby Stock and Gift go up on the site over the past two days! Today I’m going to be taking a look at those goods! (｀・ω・´)ゞ
☆ Gift ☆

Be sure to collect them all!
These will be on sale from the 5th April at the animate Ikebukuro Store! They will be available at other animate stores by late April as well!
Note that they are also trading-type badges, which means you won’t know who you will get until you’ve purchased the capsule!♪
The character I chose as my first sword is none other than… Kasen Kanesada!

– Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-: Trading Paper Posters – First Division –
|Trading posters featuring the swordsmen of Touken Ranbu. Sold in sets of two. Total of 14 to collect. (One pack contains two posters)|
These are also trading-type items! Each purchase will contain two random posters! The posters are made to look like traditional Japanese-style wall scrolls, which help bring out the atmosphere of the Touken Ranbu universe! This should give you a feel for the size of the posters! ★
As well as one of my favorites, Yamanbagiri Kunihiro!
Decorate your room with your favorite Touken swordsmen!! (●´ω｀●)
– Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-: Omamori / Omamori Goku –
|The ‘omamori’ protective charms from the game have been transformed into real charms for fans!|
These are sure to bring out the luck in your endeavours!
(For things like forging new swords in game, forging new swords in game… or even forging new swords in game!)
– Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-: Wooden Tablet – Fuji/Pine/Bamboo/Plum –
|A product that recreates the wooden tablets, or ’ema’ that are used to raise your chances of getting stronger characters! Perhaps if you write the name of the character you want on the back, you’ll get him next!|
They really are… made from wood!!
Those who have played the game will be very familiar with these items from the game! They also comes with a handy string to hang them up by! (/ω＼)
The posters and wooden tablets above will be on sale prior to release in limited quantities at the GOODSMILE x animate Cafe! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
– Touken Ranbu Gold Lacquer Stickers –
|From the popular online game ‘Touken Ranbu’ comes a set of gold-lacquered stickers featuring various popular characters from the game!|
I managed to get my hands on some samples, so let me try sticking them on something!! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
The sticker features the upper and lower pieces of film allowing for easy attachment! Remove the bottom piece of film and stick it on the the surface, then remove the top and complete the stick! No worry about it sticking to your hands or not applying neatly! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
The sticker I chose was the strongest in my team in the game…
The Taroutachi Crest! ♥
Thank you for always winning so quickly and easily!
– Touken Ranbu Linkable Trading Acrylic Keychains: 1st Unit –
|From ‘Touken Ranbu’ comes a set of character keychains that can link together!|
As the name suggests, these can link together to form a chain of keychains! ★★
Keep each of your favorite characters with you wherever you go – even linked together as if from the game screen!
Both the items above will be on sale prior to release at the GOODSMILE x animate Cafe!
They will also be on sale from April in other stores!
Anyway, moving on to the future line-up… the next Nendoroids planned in the series are…
Kashuu Kiyomitsu and Kogitsunemaru!!
Additionally, a scale figure of Mikazuki Munechika is also in the works! ♥︎
But there is still more! Max Factory are also working on a Kogitsunemaru scale figure!! ♪
