Today we’ll start off with a quiz!


Who do you think this is…?

It’s the 3rd figure in the 1/8th scale Bakemonogatari series:

Suruga Kanbaru!

Following on from the figures of Senjougahara and Nadeko from the same series.


The pose is based on the jacket cover of the 3rd BD/DVD of the series, which you can see in the back here.

Of all the different stories in Bakemonogatari I enjoyed the ‘Suruga Monkey’ story the most. Whilst I love Senjougahara’s personality, Kanbaru’s story really brought tears to my eyes… plus the battle scenes were also really impressive. If you haven’t seen it you should definitely try to find the time!


This is how she looks from the back!

    /:::::::: ( ○)三(○)\   
     \:::::::::|r┬-|  ,/
   ノ::::::::::::  `ー’´ \

That base is huge!!

The Bakemonogatari figure series is becoming very will known for it’s very detailed extras and bases. They’re just getting better and better with every release…

The production quality on this one really makes me want to shed a tear…. ^^;


She looks so entranced by her book…

She has been sculpted with a downward gaze… definitely not something easy to sculpt, but it looks great!

But just what is she reading…?



Kanbaru really loves her BL titles…!

Those who have seen the anime will remember the famous scene where Kanbaru is with Ararararagi-san in the sea of red books.

Even the posing and details of how she holds her book is incredible… those long fingers have a kind of erotic feeling to them.

By the way… for those of you who don’t know what BL is… good for you! 😛


Another extra that just has to come with any figure of Kanbaru…

A basketball!

If you compare the ball to the one on the original DVD jacket, you’ll notice even the logo is placed in the exact same place… it has a stunningly realistic design!


Her beautiful long legs!

Those calves… just look at those sexy calves!!  You can also see that even her basket ball shoes’ soles are finely detailed!


Summer clothes!

Those little gaps where you hope to see something really add something extra to the figure! (even if you can’t actually seen anything)

On that note… it’s amazing how much you can actually see in between the gaps between buttons on blouses. Watch out for that girls!


The best shot!(in my opinion)

It’s been ages since I last found a figure at Oda-P’s seat!

Last week the Wonder Festival figures were announced, but there are some normal figures to play with as well!!

I’d better get started! (・∀・)ノ


Nendoroid Petite: B.G.M Festival Set – vol.0!

The B.G.M Festival Vol.0 is an music event which will feature music from a variety of different games – it’s going to be held on the 16th April 2011. This set features a set of 5 Nendoroid Petites of characters from the various games that the event will be based on.

    /:::::::: ( ○)三(○)\     “Wow!
  |::::::::::(__人__)::::|    Does that mean I can get characters
     \:::::::::   |r┬-|   ,/           from different studios all in one set?!”
    ノ::::::::::::  `ー’´  \  

Yep! This really is the perfect set for fans of games full of cute girls! It’s great to see all the game makers have come together to work on an event like this!

GSC’s first figures were actually mostly of characters from games like these, and I for one still love them just as much as ever!


This is how they look from the back!

Each of them have such different hairstyles and every single one looks lovely!
You can tell which is which so easily even from behind.

Let’s take a look at them one-by-one!

First up from Alice Soft it’s…
Uesugi Kenshin from Sengoku Rance!

The Rance series are definitely Alice Soft’s most well known titles.


Her helmet can be taken off!

You can put the ribbon in her hair in place of the helmet, leaving you to choose which pose your prefer. Her armor and sword are stunningly detailed for such a tiny figure!


Next up is Navel’s
Asuka Watarai from ‘Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai’!

We definitely couldn’t leave out Asuka from this set. Doesn’t her uniform look absolutely adorable in Nendo Petite form!?


Then from minori…
Miyako Miyamura from ‘ef – a fairy tale of the two’!

From the popular game that even got an anime conversion!
This is the first time Miyako has been made into a figure! Wow!


And from Circus…
Otome Asakura from ‘D.C.II~Da Capo II~‘!

We’ve had a couple of Nendoroids from Da Capo II before, and now the elder sister will be joining the Nendo Petite world. She carries her bag under her arm and has a brilliant smile beaming across her face for you to enjoy!


Finally from OVERDRIVE
Kirari Shiino from ‘Kira Kira’

The guitar and mike are so detailed it’s hard to believe she’s a petite Nendoroid!
Kirari also really needed a nice figure to remember her by!
