Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

‘Hotaru’ means firefly in Japanese! Whenever I think of fireflies I remember seeing them at Shimogamo Shrine in Kyoto! They were so pretty!!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at…

Nendoroid Hotarumaru!☆

From the popular browser game ‘Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-‘ comes a Nendoroid of Hotarumaru – the character with a small body, but a very large sword. He comes with three expressions including his standard expression, a combat expression as well as an embarrassed, upset expression based on his line, “I’ll shrink if you keep petting me like that.”His sword can be displayed sheathed or drawn, and his trademark hat can be attached and removed as you see fit – he even comes with a miniature hat to display him holding the hat instead! Be sure to add him to your collection!

“Are you having fun petting me?”

The family treasure kept in the ancient shrine of Mt. Aso is joining the Touken Ranbu Nendoroid series! ♪

The lovely green gradient of his eyes, his large trademark hat and everything else about his outfit has been carefully shrunk down to Nendoroid size while keeping all of his unique charm in tact! ♥︎

He looks so cute, and at the same time the colors of his outfit give him a much more formal appearance that contrasts really nicely!

The armor on his left arm is so detailed for its size! You can even see a kind of varnished appearance to it that adds a nice texture! (・∀・)

Anyway, let’s take a look from the back! ☆

The sword on his back has an impressive presence!

The Nendoroid itself is a little smaller than most Nendoroids to recreate his short stature, which makes the long sword stand out even more!!

The part of his cape draped over the sword has even been included with a gradient to yellow included!

△ The two layers of the cape also allow for a different nuance! ★

He looks great in his standard standing pose, but you also of course have the choice to display him with his sword drawn as well!

Battle mode Hotarumaru!

His second expression is a combat expression!! (/ω\)

He comes with bent arms and legs which allow for rather dynamic combat poses! The eyes of this expression have a really strong will to them!

△ Create various different battle scenes! ☆

Anyway, onto his third expression!

An upset expression!! (●´ω`●)

An expression based on his line “I’ll shrink if you keep petting me like that.”!

He’s just so adorable!!

Plus as you may have noticed his hat can also be removed! You can even try to place it on other characters heads as long as their hair isn’t too different!

Nendoroid Shokudaikiri Mitsutada on sale from March! ♪

Plus, he also comes with a smaller hat part, so you can pose him holding it, covering up his mouth like this!! 

The mini hat has the exact same detail!! (´□`。)

Posing the smaller hat over his mouth creates a whole new expression that really suits Hotarumaru nicely!! ♪

Simply pick the pose you like best!! ♥︎

As usual, he also comes with a special base featuring his symbol!

△ Just like all the previous Nendoroids in the Touken Ranbu series!

Add him to your collection and pet him all you like!
