Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
Winter is definitely here now! It’s time for hot cocoa with marshmallows!! ♡
Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Nendoroid Ichigo Hitofuri!
|From the popular browser game ‘Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-‘ comes a Nendoroid of Ichigo Hitofuri, the sword with many short swords as his younger brothers. He comes with three expression parts including his standard expression, a combat expression as well as a smiling expression to display him showing his gratitude.
His sword can be displayed both sheathed and drawn, and he comes with two different cape parts – one for his standard pose and another based on his combat appearance! Be sure to add Ichigo Hitofuri to your collection!
“As the dew, I fall. And as the dew, I vanish.”
The only long sword ever made by the renown sword smith Awataguchi Yoshimitsu: Ichigo Hitofuri is joining the Nendoroids! ♪
His gentle eyes and beautiful light blue hair as well as his refined, almost noble appearance have been transformed into Nendoroid size beautifully! As his one line in the game states, his clothes are far too fancy for his demeanour, but that doesn’t change the fact that they look amazing!! The gold used in various instances over the outfit really make the relatively simple design stand out!
The shoulder cape featuring his symbol is split into two parts, allowing for various different nuances in posing!
The shoulder cape also comes with an alternate version which can be swapped out for this pose! (´□｀｡)
Slightly more folded out, elegantly blowing in the wind behind him!
This part alone allows for a rather different atmosphere in poses! The appearance really works nicely in creating a tense fight scene – the moment before the battle!! ε=(｡・д・｡)
With that said, I think it’s time to take a look at his second expression…
A combat expression!
He looks so carefully focused on the enemies before him! A perfect stance with absolute confidence in his eyes!
As you can see, you can also pose his scabbard attached at his hips to allow for these combat scenes! The knot that ties the scabbard on is even tied up on this version of the scabbard – different to the one he holds in his hands! (・ω・)/
The tightly closed mouth and sharp eyes really give a nice tense feeling that combat is about to begin for Ichigo Hitofuri!
The spilt part of the shoulder cape can be moved up and around the arm like above, allowing for various different stances and ways to hold his sword! I can’t wait to see all the ideas that everyone comes up with! (*´Д｀)=з
We’ve had a relaxed expression and a combat expression, so let’s move on to his third expression…
A lovely smile based on his line from the game, ‘My thanks to you’! (/ω＼)
The pose with his hand to his chest brings out that gentlemanly personality so nicely as well!! I wish I had Ichigo Hitofuri as my older brother!!
Anyway, as Nendoroids are in fact action figures, let’s try out a couple of poses!! The poses and stories you can make with figures are only limited by your imagination!! Let’s see what my imagination is capable of… ｜ω･；)ﾁﾗｯ
– Patting One of his Little Brothers on the Head –
Ichi-nii is well known for always thinking of his little brother swords! I’m sure before he goes out to battle he always gives them a pet on the head! The cape blowing elegantly to the side makes his farewell even more touching!! ★
– Acting a Little Bashful –
Depending on how you look at it, the smiling expression can also be seen as a bit of an embarrassed expression! Here he have him raising up his arm as if trying to hide away his embarrassment a bit!
Compare the two photos above and you can see you can really experience all sorts of different sides of Ichigo’s personality through the figure!!
I also strongly recommend capturing your favourite poses of the Touken characters and sharing them! Because I want to see them too!!
If you wish to share your photos with other Touken fans, Tweet the photo on Twitter together with this hashtag: ‘#ねんどろ刀剣男士‘! You can also search for that tag to find all sorts of lovely photos!! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
Last but not least, he also comes with a round base featuring his symbol!! ★
These stands have of course been included with all the Touken Ranbu Nendoroids, and they look really amazing all lined up together! (●´ω｀●)
Add the adorable Ichi-nii to your collection!
