Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I have the strange urge to go to an aquarium. The Sumida aquarium right near the GSC offices is currently a ‘Jellyfish Kaleidoscope Tunnel’!
But anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…
|From the popular PC game ‘DRAMAtical Murder’ comes a Nendoroid of Clear! His trademark gas mask is included but can also be removed to reveal his face, and he even comes with a smaller version of the mask to hold in his hands while not wearing it!He also comes with three different expressions for when his face is revealed including his standard expression, a disheartened expression as well as a smiling expression to respond to his ‘master’ Aoba! He also comes with a vinyl umbrella as an optional part. Enjoy recreating all sorts of scenes from the series!|
“I heard my Master’s voice, so I came.”
The ‘pure angel that fell from the heavens’, Clear is joining the Nendoroids! His trademark gas mask, lab coat, loosely wound green scarf, white boots and gloves have all been included to capture his unique design really effectively in Nendoroid size! I can just imagine his pure voice shouting out ‘Master!’ to Aoba!! (●´ω｀●)
From the back you can see the gentle layers of his hair which give it a very soft, gentle looking appearance! Plus in his left hand he is holding a vinyl umbrella!
“I thought the stars might rain down.”
The umbrella is included to help recreate those scenes where he would open up the umbrella just based on his mood, even though the weather was, well… clear.
The umbrella can be held in either hand, also allowing for some variety!
Plus! Another rather important thing to mention about this figure is…
The gas mask can be removed!!
The gas mask attaches to his hair parts, but there is also an alternate hair part without the connectors allowing you to enjoy his revealed face as well! ♪
Those of you who know Clear’s story will know there is a lot to the gas mask being worn and removed! Here we have him without the mask!
First up with this expression! ☆
A gentle, smiling expression! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
Long, thin eyes like these normally give a ‘cool’ appearance, but in Clear’s case I think it gives him more of a friendly look! ♡
Plus those two little moles by his mouth!
Also, now that the gas mask isn’t stealing all the attention, take a closer look at the detail of his outfit! The shirt on the inside of his coat with sculpted buttons, the watch on his wrist and the little details on those boots are all amazing. But let’s move on to his next expression…
A wistful, somewhat sad expression! (´□｀｡)
This one is great to display with the previously released Nendoroid Aoba, as it is made in the image of the scene where Clear fear removed his gas mask with Aoba! You can real feel Clear’s insecure feelings!
Clear is normally such a carefree and playful character, but having this gap that shows another side of his personality is amazing!
Plus as you can see from the photo above, he also comes with a smaller gas mask part that can be held in his hand as if he has just removed the mask! You can even swap hand parts around a bit and have Aoba hold the mask instead!
But we can’t end with a sad expression, so let’s move onto his final expression…
A cheerful smile to happily respond to his Master’s calls! ♥︎
The smile seems so different to Aoba’s! There is definitely something fleeting about his smile! Like something almost too good to be true!
Here he is posed together with an embarrassed Aoba! (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧
He is an amazing Nendoroid on his own, but really brings the atmosphere of the series to life when displayed with the other Nendoroids from the series! ٩(๑òωó๑)۶
Enjoy everything from his gas mask look, to smiles and sad times all with one lovely Nendoroid! ♪
He’ll be up for preorder from tomorrow! ♪
As with the previous DRAMAtical Murder Nendoroids, the first edition packaging will also feature a special inner cardboard sheet based on one of the backgrounds from the game! ☆
The design will be announced at a later date!
