Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

My favorite of favorite foods might just be takoyaki! Best when they are soft and fluffy! Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Ryujo!

From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the light aircraft carrier, Ryujo! She comes complete with both a standard aeroplane and ‘shikigami’ paper planes to fly beside her.

The divination scroll in the image of a flight deck as well as a pouch to hang from her shoulder are both included. Her favorite food, takoyaki, are also included for her to enjoy! ♪ Alternate parts to recreate her half-damaged appearance are also included!

Oooooooooohhh!! (/ω\)

From the popular browser game Kantai Collection comes a Nendoroid of the light cruiser, Ryujo!

Everything about her design down to the scroll in the image of a flick deck have been faithfully converted into chibi Nendoroid size! The outfit is a nice blend between Japanese and Western styles!

This is how she looks from the back! ♡

The mini AA-guns around her hips look so detailed!! (σ・∀・)σ

She is wearing thick-soled shoes giving her a longer appearance… not that her petite build isn’t adorable! It makes me want to pet her on the head as she is so cute!! The twin-tails are fitted with Nendoroid joints allowing you to easily match them up with any poses! (`・ω・´)ゞ

Anyway, as I’m sure many have noticed, the first photo featured an aeroplane!

(・∀・) “Ryujo comes with quite a few types of aeroplanes!”

We’re joined by the planner for Nendoroid Ryujo, Kyojin!

(・∀・) “We wanted to allow fans to recreate the effect of Ryujo ‘summoning’ the planes from paper planes, so we included various points of the transformation!”


“Aircraft! Head out, head out!!”

The divining fire summons the aircraft !!  

(・∀・) “Four plane parts are included – a paper plane, mid-transformed plane, Mitsubishi A5M and Nakajima B5N!”

It’s really like they are slowing changing as they move along! ♪

(・∀・) “Each plane also comes with it’s own little stand, allowing for quick and easy placement wherever you like!”

Anyway, up until now we’ve had a rather serious Ryujo in combat mode… what other expressions does she have?

(・∀・) “First up we have this smiling expression!”

Ooooooooohhhh!! (´□`。)

Definitely a much more gentle expression compared to the previous one!

But wait! The scroll!! I know this pose!

(・∀・) “You can easily place the scroll in the position of Ryujo Kai Ni as both a long and short version are included!”

The long version reaches about 13.5cm in length including the bottom section!

But hold on a second… the previous pose had the scroll kind of bend around… is it made from a soft material, or…? (?△?)

(・∀・) “The top and bottom sections are made from a hard material to allow the stand to connect easily, but the actual ‘scroll’ part is planned to be made from a durable kind of paper meaning it won’t get in the way of any poses!”

I see, I see! (‘-‘*)(,_,*)(‘-‘*)(,_,*)

That means that you can create all sorts of bendy poses with the scroll as well! By the way, the shorter scroll will be completely made from the harder material. The soft paper is only used on the longer version!

(・∀・) “Other parts that work well with the smile… are these!”

S-She comes with these?!

(・∀・) “Yep! It was a tough choice deciding on what fun parts to give her, but we eventually decided on the takoyaki, the same as was found on the GAMERS special poster of Ryujo” 

The see-though packaging and even the stick to eat them with! Such wonderful detail! ♡

(・∀・) “Another thing that was on this poster was the pouch for holding her scroll! It’s also included!”

Ooooooooh! (*´Д`)=з

The strap part is even made from actual fabric for unobstructed posing! Yay!

(・∀・) “These parts allow for more everyday life scenes – a rather different feel to the combat look!”

△ I want to go on a date and eat takoyaki while walking beside her!

Finally! What is her third expression?

(・∀・) “A Half-damaged expression!!!” 

Just look at those downward facing eyebrows!! She looks so defeated!! 

(・∀・) “This time we decided it was time to include a half-damaged body once again! The skirt is all ripped up and jewel from her neck is hanging down… not to mention her shirt being ripped open showing her stomach!” 

I personally love that her little belly button is showing! ♡

Even the reverse side has a damaged look to it!

Even the torn right shoulder has been faithfully added to the  damaged body!

(・∀・) “It was quite a tough Nendoroid to work on, but I think we packed her fill with Ryujo love! I’m sure fans will enjoy adding her to their collections!”

Be sure to give her lots of love!

Nendoroid Ryujo!

She is up for preorder as of today! ♥︎

Plus as usual. orders from the GOOD SMILE ONLINE SHOP will include a special Nendoroid stand a box sleeve! ♪
