Tasshi! What are you doing!?

001

You’re looking way too close! Stop staring at the poor girl!

Tasshi here was in charge of coloring for today’s figure!
He is just admiring his fine work! (I hope! :P)

The 5th figure in the 1/8th scale Bakemonogatari series:

Mayoi Hachikuji!

She is yet another heroine from the popular anime Bakemonogatari, following on from Hitagi Senjougahara, Nadeko Sengoku, Suruga Kanbaru and Tsubasa Hanekawa is ‘ the girl who was puzzled by the snail’ – Mayoi Hachikuji!

Take a look at the photo above and then compare below…

15

A perfect 3D rendition of the illustration!

It’s unbelievable… the more you look at it the more it just looks as if the illustration has just jumped out into the 3D world!

As before, she is also based on the BD/DVD package!
To be more specific, the original illustration was the front cover of the second volume of the anime – “Mayoi Snail”.

004

This is how she looks from the back!

Of course you can’t have Mayoi without her giant bird backpack. The little bear in side pocket can be taken out and replaced with something else!

005

A look from the other side!

Even the name sticker has been written out in the exact same font! You can also see the giant paw sticking out the bag, as well as the little rabbit patch on the side!

17

An embarrassed expression holding a ribbon in her mouth!

Such an adorable childish cuteness mixed with a wonderful adult charm!
Look around the ribbon at her slightly open shirt!

006

Plus wonderful thighs!

I was just thinking during the Azunyan figure the other day that these half-way up socks might becoming more and more popular – Mayoi also has them!

Those calves just make you want to reach out and touch them!  。・゚・(ノД`)・゚・。

You can even make out her figure nicely over her clothes!!

007

Her right shoe can be removed!

The package featured her shoe half falling off, which is great – but you also have the choice to remove it completely for a slightly different feeling!

008

This is how she looks from the top!

We normally always only get a look of figures from the front – that’s generally how they’re displayed… but sometimes it’s interesting to take a look at them from the top!
The ribbon and loose show stand out so much more!
(I’m sure at least some people will agree with me :P)

010

The map can be placed wherever!

As you can see it’s painted as a real map – the details are amazing, both on the map and Mayoi’s beautiful curves!
By the way!

Some of you might be thinking something like that! So was I in fact… but…

Her backpack is the stand!

Although because of that…
The price will be lower than the other figures in the series!

It’ll make it a little cheaper for everyone trying to grab the entire figure series!

012

The backpack can be removed as so!

Which also lets us see her back!

Her petite little back has been sculpted just as carefully as the front! There is a little bumpy bit where the backpack connects, but there wasn’t anything that could do about that – I shouldn’t bother anyone too much!

013

The second in the Bakemonogatari 1/8th scale series:

Nadeko Sengoku is going on resale!
She will go on resale on the same day Mayoi is released – if you missed out on her the first time around, be sure to grab her this time!

Anyways, that’s all for today!
I hope to see you all again tomorrow!  (・∀・)ノ゛
