Today’s main feature…!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

The know in Japan today made my normal trip to work twice as long… it’s amazing how that sort of delay can get your stressed before the day even begins! Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a a look at…

Nendoroid Akashi Kai!

From the popular browser game ‘Kantai Collection -KanColle-‘ comes a Nendoroid of the repair ship, Akashi Kai! She comes with three expressions including her standard expression, a prim expression as well as an expression with her tongue out, ready to repair anything!

Her ship parts are the upgraded ‘Kai’ parts and are fitted with various joints and connections making them highly flexible for various poses. Optional parts include a variety of items perfect for Akashi’s repair work including a welding mask, welding machine, welding effect parts, blueprints and a spanner! Be sure to display her with her support partner, Nendoroid Oyodo!

“I’m Akashi, the only dedicated repair ship in the fleet.”

The ship girl who’s main role is that of support is joining the Nendoroid series in her upgraded ‘Kai’ version! All the cute details that bring out her character such as the tufts of hair sticking out beneath her ears, her confident eyes and the sailor outfit with a hint of Japanese style have all been faithfully transformed into Nendoroid size! The ship parts including her little crane are also looking great!! All of Akashi’s charm has been compacted into the figure! ♪

“I never expected to be use my arsenal to fire at the enemy!”

Akashi might be a support ship, but she is still equipped with some weapons!

A hand part to clench the lever by the turret is included together with firing effect parts which work great to pose her as if firing at the enemy in combat! ♪

The headband parts connect onto the back of the head through one part that can be attached and removed! The front part of the headband connect into the reverse side of the front hair parts! (σ・∀・)σ

Anyway, along with the confident smiling expression above, she also comes with this more gentle expression! (σ・∀・)σ

A prim and proper expression! ♡ 

The crane of the right side of the ship parts can also be detached and instead held in her arms! 

You can just imagine her saying something like “Should I get that fixed?”. But moving onto her third expression which also has a very different feel…

A mischievous expression!

The way her tongue is sticking out together with those cunning eyes makes you wonder just what she is planning! (/ω\)

In her hands she holds a variety of repair-related optional parts including a welding mask, some blueprints and a spanner!

△ So small! So cute!

But that’s not all! She also comes with a welding machine and effect parts to match with the welding mask and really allow you to display her hard at work repairing!

The two tanks included are for ‘Arc welding’ and ‘Gas Welding’! Plus she even comes with alternate hand parts wearing gloves!

This is how she looks lined up with all of the included optional parts!

△ The glove hand parts and alternate hand and leg parts are also included!

So many different options!

As with most of the KanColle Nendoroids, the amount of parts allow you to pose her in all sorts of fun different ways! Another thing to note is that the cranes on her ship parts are articulated even more than normal, allowing you to really move them around to better match your poses! (●´ω`●)

△ Move them around to wherever needs repairs!

Last but not least, here is a photo of her together with her support buddy, Oyodo! ☆

△ These two together makes for a very relaxing scene! (੭ु ›ω‹ )੭ु⁾⁾

You can pose Akashi holding onto Oyodo’s arm to make them look rather close!
